weekly wishes 13

Is this picture not the most gorgeous thing ever? It's from a NatGeo Expedition to Antarctica. Have you ever seen so many shades of blue? It makes me a bit weak at the knees; I want to see it in person so badly.

Anyways, today, I’m linking up with The Nectar Collective for Weekly Wishes. Yada yada, I do this every week. The Weekly Wishes is where we all can share our posts about goals, challenges, and wishes for the week! 

Last week, I wished for a few things and was fairly. Here’s a recap in order of how successful I was: Basically my goals were to stay on top of my school work and life. I more or less did pretty well! I didn't turn in anything late and even got some decent sleep. I was born to ace this whole school thing.

So it was a pretty good week! I'm not dead yet! Here are my weekly wishes for this coming week:

Exercise! I have gotten really bad about this lately. I'm working on getting my gym membership back up but until then I've been doing Blogilates. That lady is craaaazy! I did Playa del Plank (along with others) and literally had to stop it half way through because my abs were crying. It's sad but it's motivating me to work harder!

Work on my big project with Aukele! I've got something big coming up soon with Aukele and I'm really excited about it! We haven't set a launch date but it'll be up within a few weeks hopefully! We've got some big steps to take this week and I can't wait to see where they'll take us.

I’m just sticking to two goals this week but I think that will be challenging enough!


I’m also linking up with Erika for Grad-itude again, a link up about being grateful! I loved looking through everyone else's happy thoughts last week so I'm in it again. Here are three things I’m grateful for right now.

Again, H. Saturday night, I was all alone and had a terrible migraine and the sweet boy drove to three different grocery stores to find me my favorite pistachio gelato (which is also way expensive) just to surprise me and make me feel better! How nice is he?! I told him it deserved a shout-out on the blog--I think he was excited about that.

The day off! I know this is a bit overdone because it seems to be the thing people are most happy about around here, but still! And I have fun plans for today. H is out hunting so I'm hanging out with my mom to sew a little and then my dad and I are hopefully going to choose my senior trip destination and do a little planning. Woohoo! This girl's excited.

Umm well there's a lot of good food in my house...I'm slightly ashamed about this one, but it's making me quite happy right now. We have good tea, good ice cream (thanks H!), good popcorn and good fruit! Happy Allie.

Now head on over to The Nectar Collective & Chimerikal and join the link-ups.

What do you wish for this week? What are you grateful for?

  1. Wow those blues are amazing! Makes me think of the video Chelsea posted about swimming with the whale sharks. I just love the ocean and would love to see Antarctica one day!

  2. I like your goals for this week. And the projects seems like fun. Good luck!

  3. good luck this week, lady! Exercise is one of my goals as well .... let's motivate each other :)

  4. NatGeo has some amazing nature pictures! Good on you keeping on top of school work and life - isn't the feeling of handing in everything on time the best?
    Good luck with this week's goals and let's kick some exercise butt this week! ;)

  5. Good luck! I'm hoping to stay on track with exercise this week too, since there's a lot of orientation and school related things coming up.. it can be suuuuper hard. I'd love to get back in the gym , but truth be told I think I'd miss Cassey's rambling and quit way sooner than if I'm doing some of her videos.
    Can't wait to find out what your big project is!

  6. It really is! I can't wait to show everyone (:

  7. I'm usually super disorganized so every time I find things where they're supposed to be I'm just like way to go, Allie...you've got your life together (: Such a good feeling!

  8. Yes! Please get on me for it...I have got to get motivated!

  9. Haha I love Cassey...she makes it look so easy though! She's like isn't this fun? Meanwhile I'm crying in my plank. I mean not literally...psh

  10. I know!! I loooved that, especially since I'm obsessed with whale sharks. Like literally, my parents sent me to the Georgia Aquarium for Christmas last year just so I could see them (:

  11. That place looks stunning - golly, I'd love to see that in person.
    Man, I'm excited to hear about your new project - yay for new projects.

  12. Antarctica is #1 on my dream destination list!

  13. Pistachio ice cream!? Oh girl, I'm going to have to go and try this one out! Hope you have an incredible week darling :D

  14. A day off is always something to be grateful for :)

  15. It's Talenti Sicilian Pistachio Gelato! It's like 8 dollars for a pint so I get it like once a year for my birthday. AMAZING. Thanks Stacey, have a great week!

  16. Oh yes! And now I'm sick today (Tuesday) so it's almost like another day off!

  17. Me too! I'm trying to decide where I want to go for my senior trip (parents take us anywhere after we graduate) but they nixed Antarctica. Sad face.

  18. eeeeee no way you're as excited as I am!! But you'll see soon!!

  19. Aww, your boyfriend sounds like a sweetheart. I love when people do little things like that out of the blue. Those always tend to make my day.

  20. He really is! He knows I appreciate things like that (:

  21. Good luck on Blogilates! It looks.... intimidating. >___<

  22. I know right!! I see this pretty girl and I'm like oh yeah I got this....psych! She's a beast.

  23. But it seems her beast-y moves are getting people working! Haha.

  24. I don't care I hate her. And want to be her at the same time.

  25. Hahaha! Talk about love-hate relationship.

  26. Woohoo, there is a TON of good stuff going on in here! But I must comment on how sweet your boyfriend seems and having good food in the house is always great (though I'm finding I'm putting on a couple of pounds -- oh no -- so maybe not as much good food, haha).

    And I am excited to hear more about this project with Aukele!!! :) Thanks for linking up with GRAD-ITUDE 101! :)

  27. He's a sweetheart! And I'm SO excited to share the project! September 17th can't come fast enough!!
