the weekend + committing to...

happy monday, everyone! how were your weekends? mine was great: i spent friday night bowling and hanging out with one of my my friend t.; saturday relaxing and then heading to a wedding (to which i wore the shoes in the photo above), also with t.; and sunday relaxing some more, rearranging the furniture in my living room a bit, and tooling around town with my lovely friend k. (hi, bonesy!) 

in spite of the wedding, it was a pretty uneventful couple of days, but i did get to catch up on sleep, which was super awesome--especially since i'd resolved to be better about that last week. i also watched the glee finale several times (yes, yes, i'm obsessed) and performed several glee-themed concertos for oscar (medleys of "faithfully" and "don't stop believin'," with a touch of "bohemian rhapsody" for good measure). have i mentioned that i would be happy to sing all day and all night? no? well, i would, and this weekend reaffirmed that. ha! 

anyway, it's monday now, and that means it's time for a new "committing to..." so here are the little things i'm committing to this week:

+ deep breath. this is a big one, guys: i'm going to try to cut back on caffeine. i've been drinking so much coffee lately--too much. so i need to cut back. i'm going to try to replace with brewed-by-me green tea for the time being, and hopefully eventually with water. i've pretty much managed to cut all soda out of my diet, except for the occasional coke slurpee or diet coke, so i think i can do it.
+ not getting distracted by stupid, petty things. they take away from the bigger picture.
+ really starting to think about the future, and what i want from it.
+ trying to pick up running again. it's really, really, really hot--but it's also staying lighter later, and nothing beats the endorphins you get after a good jog. so yes, this too.

and you? what are your little goals for the week?

  1. OK, once again, love the photo! You have talent. And, I admire your list. It's a really good one. I hope your week is going great!

  2. Caffeine! I hear you on the need to cut back. I try to mix in decaf with my regular if I have more than 1 cup in the morning. Good luck with you commitments for the week!
