Jan 15 - 21 Recap

Hey All! Happy Monday!!

How is it already a new week?! Last week literally flew by! Last week was definitely a Grace Not Perfection week!

Top things that happened:
1) Cam had his first day of work on Tuesday! He was chosen to be a background extra for a Netflix show, The OA. It was a ton of fun but a very long day. We left the house around 6:45am and didn’t get home until 5pm. It was nice because his Grammy, my MIL, got to go with and help me! He did great! He seemed to have fun and was fascinated by the all camera equipment! Plus  he had his own little trailer! How cool is that?! Haha I’ll keep you posted for when it airs! Other cool thing was he met his name twin - Cameron Blake was name of the Props Director! Small world! Haha

2) We got to spend some time with Matt’s side of the family for his cousin Layla’s 5th birthday. She had an adorable Trolls themed birthday party at Scooters Jungle. Unfortunately Cam had plans of his own that involved major melt downs and fighting naps so we were super later and missed all the play time but we finally made it towards the end and at least got to see everyone and have some cake! I definitely want to take Cam to that place again on one of their open play days - it looks so fun!

This weeks goal recap:

Family - while we didn’t go on any family walk this weekend, we did have a wonderful week spending time together. We did tackle Costco together Sunday evening so that’s gotta count for something right?! 😝

Home - this week was kind of a win for home organization! With Monday being off work, I used some of the day to clean up around the house and really clean some of the clutter piles in the kitchen. I didn’t get it all picked up but I did get the high top kitchen table FINALLY all cleaned off, and all the stuff that was piled on it put away or thrown away! That felt amazing!!

Decided to hang up a notebook with sheet protectors to organize and display Cams artwork :)
I kinda love how it turned out!

Personal - Since I finished my first book last week, I started listening The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone. So far it’s got ok content but the audible version is kind of driving me crazy - the guy is so hyper and the book has so much repetition and fluff it’s a little obnoxious. I’ll try and keep an open mind until I finish it but so far, not one of my favorites.

Professional - This week was pretty hectic at work. Now that I have my 9/10 I’m sort of up and running and that definitely meant pretty full days. I have one more test on Friday the 26th and then I’m finally done! I was originally going to take this upcoming week off work to go to the library every day to study but some changes have happened at work that plans had to change. Hoping to maybe leave a few hours early at least and get some study time in at night before getting Cam from daycare and then a little more after he goes to bed. I can at least see the light at the end of this licensing tunnel - almost done!!

Financial - this week we stayed on track with eating in most of the week and we are still within our budget for the month on eating out and groceries so that’s a good thing!! We also made it in and out of Costco sticking to our list and under $200 so that’s pretty exciting (and rare) too!

Crockpot Dinners for the win this week!
Crockpot Salsa Chicken 

Hubby made some delicious pasta & meatballs

Health - Like I previously mentioned, kind of a hectic week that was over before I realized it! I only got in one workout all week but that’s ok! One is better than none!

I have a feeling this upcoming week will be just as hectic and full as last week given the changes at work and trying to study and taking my series 65 exam but that’s ok. I can’t wait to be done with my licensing!

Have a great week everyone!!
