Mimi’s World

Let me first say, thank you for all of the love on the It’s Time post. The comments were inspiring and let me know that I’m not alone on the pursuit to personal goal attainment and entrepreneurship. I really appreciate it.

They say when you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Well over here failure is not an option, but completing the tasks on my to do list are. Here’s to a new week and completing everything I set out to do. I figured I would share some of my tasks with you to hold me accountable. I would hate for you all to see what a slacker I can be!!
1. Remember the post here? Well that has been nearly a month ago and sadly I have yet to clean out my car and as life would have it, the inside looks much worse than it did before (I’ll spare you the agony of looking at updated pics). This week, I plan on cleaning it out and having it detailed.
2. The Mr. and I are headed to the mountains for an annual couples retreat the first weekend in November. Being that I am nursing I have to pump a whopping 110 ounces of milk for lil mama before I go. I am a little less than halfway to my goal. I have 59 ounces to go. Here’s to pumping 42 ounces this week :-/
3. Soooo…with the pumping comes the challenge of increasing my liquid intake…no less than 4L of water per day 🙁
4. Finalize production arrangements for the shirts, hopefully have the website up and running by next week
5. Fold ALL of the clothes this week
6. Finish my fall mantle…speaking of, I found this great vase at Ross for the “low low”

$6.99…Can’t beat that!

How was your weekend? Did you come across any awesome and most of all CHEAP finds?!! What do you have planned this week…I’m nosey, I wanna know!!

  1. Love the vase and the wall color. A couple's retreat in the mountains sounds lovely. This week I am spending time with my family back home and trying to conceal my baby bump until after my 1st dr appointment. LOL. We'll see how this goes. So far my endless supply of babydoll tops has been keeping anybody from being too suspicious.

  2. No fabulously cheap finds, of fabulous vaca *cries* lmbo. I do have a lot of plans for organizing my life, and getting healthy though!

  3. I do love that wall color!

    re: the car, I honestly had to pick a day each week to clean it out. I also try to keep a trash bag in there so whenever I get home I can just fill it up and put it in the dumpster.

    Couples retreat sounds like a lotta fun!
    Can't wait to see your website!

  4. Dang, i need to get my butt to Ross, i have one right down the street, lol! lol

    We really need to go on a couples retreat…hubby has a friend in DC that does one every year, but hubby is like "I aint goin to that mess", sigh, lol. Have a great time!

  5. Love that vase! Good luck with that "to do" list – I'll be praying for you!!

    We spent the weekend doing some fall decor outside – I'm pretty happy with it but still need a few things before I post any pics (no, I'm not a perfectionist. not all all!) 😉

    Have a great time at the retreat and remember, even if you don't get it ALL done, no worries. God will give you the motivation and the time to get done what's NEEDED.

  6. Hey! Those to do list can be hard to beat. I cleaned my car out last week. It was a mess and usually is. My son has the nerve to tell me I nned to clean it out & he's helping mess it up. Being an entrepreneur I have a new respect for companies & others that succeed! It's truly work and well worth it when we stick to it.

  7. My biggest endeavor this week is to be disciplined about having everything ready the night before for us and the kids. bottles, baby bag, school clothes, work clothes, ironed, ready to go, etc!!!!!! So far this week, I've done better but not 100% I see improvement though and it feels gooooooood. 😛

  8. I'm halfway there on the laundry! Good luck to you. And way to go on the pumping. I never could dedicate myself to that, but did manage to nurse the whole first year! Blessedly, I can stay at home! It's great to read an intelligent blog (unlike mine where my brain is too polluted by sleeplessness and caffiene). I'll be back!
