What's on your...

Absolutely LOVED this post idea from Ali, which she borrowed from her sister's blog...I just had to do my own!! Here’s what’s on my… 

VANITY |I don’t have a vanity, but if we're talking bathroom counter, then well, on it sits a white basket that holds all the essentials: toothpaste, lotion, brush/comb etc. Electric toothbrush also finds it home on the bathroom counter. 

PERENNIAL TO DO LIST | Laundry. Dishes. Sweep the floor. Take Ethan "scootering". Make more layouts. Exercise. Read. 

REFRIGERATOR SHELVES | Pop. Milk. Eggs. Strawberries. Greek yogurt. Cottage Cheese. 

ITINERARY | Myrtle Beach in June w/E and my dad. Folly Beach in July w/O & E. Basically our "routine" yearly w/dad and one with just the 3 of us. One night trip to Nashville w/Carla & kiddos - that one will be SO MUCH FUN!!

FANTASY ITINERARY Australia. Caribbean. Disney. Heck w/as little travel as I've done in the past 5 years, I'd welcome a trip to just about anywhere. :) 

PLAYLIST | I have been in a music funk lately. Nothing is calling out to me. All these "trendy" new bands/songs that I hear people talking about just do absolutely NOTHING for me. Am I music nerd? Nerd as in that I don't listen to what is considered "cool"? I dunno. Not sure I care either. 

NIGHTSTAND | Books! They have been there for ages. Ever since moving to an e-reader, it's a HUGE challenge for me to pick up a "real" book. I DO want to read them though. There are also some of Ethan's books here and those DO get read regularly. Alarm Clock. Lamp. Cordless phone (that pretty much never gets used). 

WORKOUT PLAN Ideally I'd get to the Y 3 times per week...lately it's been only 2 times. This week, it will be ONE time - but I'm OK with that as I declared this week as a week for ME...hence while E goes to a friend's house to play today after school, I WILL go to SBUX to read, relax & recharge instead of RACING to the Y for a quick run. Today I am putting the guilt aside. The Y will wait until Thursday and when I'm there, the plan is a 30 minute run, 10-15 minute walk w/incline, 10-15 minutes on the bicycle and/or some weight machines, followed by yoga class.

IPHONE | Instagram, Words w/Friends, Goodreads, My Fitness Pal, texts from friends & my mom. 

TOP 5 LIST | Cuddle time with Ethan. A day with no commitments. beach time. home improvement projects. seeing Ethan happy. 

BUCKET LIST | See a game in every MLB park. Disney Cruise. Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC. WDW at Christmas time. Own another Jeep Wrangler. Be debt-free. 

MIND That there are only 28 school days left. summer plans. losing weight/eating healthy (permanently on my mind it seems). 

WALLS OF YOUR FAVORITE ROOM IN YOUR HOUSE | a really poor paint job w/a blah yellowish color put on my the realtor who had the house listed when we bought it. do we need to paint it? yes. someday. I do have a fabulous canvas pic of Ethan hanging in there though which makes the walls much better!! 

LIQUOR SHELF | what liquor shelf? 

LAST CREDIT CARD STATEMENT Thankfully, just payments, no charges!!! :) 

SCREENSAVER | A picture of Ethan. 

TV EVERY NIGHT | Usually Ninjago or Wild Kratts. I last watched TV on Sunday w/O as we are trying to get through The History Channel's "The Bible" series...almost done!!

I did this yesterday! :) You are not a music nerd. Music on the radio sucks. And...we should play each other in words with friends. :)

You know I am filing this away for future use, right? I watched The Bible too. I was bummed when the new DVR we got failed (it was just a dumb luck bad hard drive) and took with it the final episode. I thought I wouldn't get to see it unless I bought the DVDs. But then I found it OnDemand! Yay! Just finished it earlier this week. So hard to watch, but so good. The last two episodes were definitely my favorite, but I loved the Old Testament ones too, that made me consider the Bible stories I've known all my life from the perspective of being real people and not just the "Bible heroes" we're taught about.
