Weekly Wishes 02.


Looking at last week’s wishes, I did not do so great. Gosh, it’s only the first week and I’m already slacking! The only thing I crossed off the list was making a hair appointment. I did end up getting my hair done over the weekend and that was definitely a good thing. Now on to this week’s wishes!

This week I want to…

– take care of the things from last week’s list, most importantly buying my plane ticket. I didn’t practice at all with my camera last week (I was so wrapped up in working on the redesign), but I know that this weekend I will definitely have the opportunity to take some pictures (more on that a little further below). Sadly, as far as the apple picking goes, I’m not sure it will happen soon since I have plans this weekend and then the week after that I’m going on a little trip. I haven’t given up hope yet though!

– put together my Halloween costume. I’m planning on mostly using stuff I own, but there are a few little accessories I’d like to pick up if I can find them. I think they’ll really make the outfit.

– get ready for our Halloween party this weekend! My roomie and I threw a party last year and we’ve decided to do it again this year. I’ve been pinning some spooky decorations and treats on Pinterest and I know I’m going to have fun turning some of these ideas into reality.

Let me know your goals for the week in the comments below!

  1. Hey doll, it’s my second go with Weekly Wishes too! ^_^
    It sounds like you’re a very busy lady, so I wouldn’t be too hard on yourself for not achieving your goals from last week. What are you going to be for Halloween? I’m making my costume too. My friend is having an Alice in Wonderland theme so I’m going to be the Cheshire cat.
    Get that plane ticket girl! I hope your party is oodles of fun :)

      Thanks for the encouragement Meaghan! I’m making strides towards my goals, so that counts for something, right? :)

      I’m planning to be a flight attendant for Halloween. I love the idea of having a Alice in Wonderland themed party for Halloween!

      Thank you! I hope everything goes well with my party too :)

      That’s so true. I’ll just have to try again this week with the stuff I didn’t get to last week!

  4. I love this idea of weekly wishes! I have way too many that might actually get done if I put them to paper haha. Halloween costume curating sounds like a ton of fun, and throwing a party even better!

    Oh my I gave up on Halloween. After being snowed out two years in a row (which never happens in NY) and Sandy I threw in the towel. I had a costume planned two years in a row that I never wore. But finally to wear the bunny ears in my about photo shoot.

      We had our party last year just days before Sandy and I remember being so concerned about the weather! Well, the good thing is that you could totally use those costume ideas later if you wanted to :)
