Making a Plan.

School is back in swing and it already feels overwhelming and nuts.  This weekend I NEED to sit down and make a plan. I want to be organized so that I can have room in my life for not only school and finishing up but for my other personal goals as well.  I'm really stressed out about finding a job this summer and for next fall.  It also overwhelms me to think about it.  I need to clean up my place and prepare it to be a productive work space. I need to figure out which days I'm going to the gym.  I need  to grocery shop and make a meal plan for myself.  Its been itching at me to do these things but I've been on break for a month now and am just getting back into the structured schedule.  Deep breath.  I can do this.

2011 Goals Update

So I made the first step towards one of my goals this year.  I started a savings account.  Not only that but I will be auto depositing money into every month meaning a small nest egg will slowly build without me doing a thing!  I feel so good about this.  Once I start making money I will increase it to a larger amount.  Yay for goals!

It's like this but with interest. (A tiny tiny tiny amount of interest).  Knowing I can just go on and transfer money online will be great for me.  I have a bit of a online shopping hobby.  Here is my idea (because little things add up): when I see something online that I think I want (unless its a need thing- like a textbook) I'm going to transfer the money for what it costs into my savings account.  I will leave it in there for a day and come back to it.  That is when I will decide if I really like the item more than I like the new total in my savings account.  Tiny purchases really add up and by doing this they will equal savings not buckets of crap.  I will do the same thing with other frivolous purchases like make-up, clothing etc as much as I can.  My reward for not buying things I want on impulse will be a bigger savings account to use on a car and furnishings for my future post graduation apartment when I move back to Cali.  That is about a year away most likely... so bring on the savings!!!!!

Dreamy Wedding Outfits

I'm not sure what it is.  I never used to think about weddings or my wedding.  Lately I can't stop thinking about it. Maybe its because every other minute someone I know is getting engaged. And I'm in a serious relationship.  I've started thinking about my own wedding. I think I may do a series of posts on different wedding ideas I have.  What I'm thinking about tonight are engagement photos (so weird I know....) and I think I would love  to have a flirty feminine look, a goddess look and a cocktail look.

For a goddess look... imagine running around the woods in this... maybe even barefoot.  Fancy frills in a lovely natural setting. This color would photograph nicely too.

This is just pretty. Some with and some without the sweater.

And a little glam....
