Friday Files {edition twenty two}

:: Maybe I should get a reward for being the world's worst greatest procrastinator.  I began planning a newly-married-girls group back in the fall.  Would you believe that we got together for the first time on Tuesday?!  Lesson learned: be more proactive, but never ever give up a dream. And. . .  Better late than tardy, as they say.

:: I am exceedingly proud of myself for keeping up on dishes all week.   Does that really count because I was on spring break all week?!

:: Other than dishes and maybe a couple loads of laundry, I was pretty lazy all week.

:: Aaaaaand in other random spring break news.  You may find me in a curled up ball of denial this weekend as monday translates 'back to work'.  Woe is me. . .

:: I have a hard time cooking good meals for myself when I'm home alone all day.  This is the point where I ask for help.  Can you share easy, healthy meals you have throughout the week?!  My body is screaming, Save us from meals of cottage cheese and cookies!

:: Last night Hubs had to deliver some screws to a customer on the way home that was out of the way by a whopping 15 miles.  I have to confess that I got a little irritated that he is so nice on our gas dime.  That's like a whole $5 of gas wasted.  Then I have this brick to the head moment when I realize, Duh. Would I rather be married to a selfish, stingy man?!  The head gets the message.

:: Somehow I have managed to miss my monthly goal's post for March.  Here's a little recap from February and what I'm working on this month:

: Read two non-fiction book and one fiction or two or three
{Read The Pioneer Woman's Love Story.  Literally made me laugh and cry.  For realz people.  READ IT!}
: Send seester another package. : Learn to crochet
: Start a little herb garden from seeds 
: Plan weekly menus for at least one week: Send a surprise gift to someone.: Exercise at least twice a week

{unless you consider bed to kitchen runs for cookies exercise}

: Actually learn to crochet
: Fix the holes in our bedroom walls
: Read another two books.  Maybe actually three this time
: Actually run outside at least twice a week
: Plan a rockin' good Easter dinner
: Do a craft. Any craft. Just something.
: Take one of my little sister's on a date
: Reach 450 followers. . . will you spread the love?!
