goals check-in

Since the year is more than halfway over (like, a month ago), I decided to do a brief re-cap of my progress on my personal goals for the year. They were: 1) Finish B.A. with all A’s. 2) Get to a healthy weight. 3) Run a half-marathon. 4) Continue to simplify. 5) Pay off Visa… Continue reading goals check-in

…apparently, about 48 hours ago. Who knew? Not me. Here’s how I spent my weekend: Last weekend, while I was shopping-til-I-wanted-to-drop, I found this awesome new comforter. Red is my second favorite color, and I love Asian-inspired things, so it was a natural choice. Since I don’t have a headboard on my bed, I ordered… Continue reading when did I become Suzy Homemaker?
