101 in 1001

So I have seen this in the past month floating around and wanted to join in on the fun! It's taken me a little bit to work on my list but finally here it is! 
I'm happy for it to be on this little space of mine, where I can see it, and get things accomplished. Doesn't it feel wonderful to get things done and reach your goals?

The Challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on your part).

Why 1001 Days?

Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple challenges such as New Year's resolutions or a 'Bucket List'. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips, study semesters, or outdoor activities.

Thankful Thursday

There are so many things to be thankful for in our busy lives and here are just a few that have been on my mind lately...

I'm so thankful 

..for my business and how God is blessing it! I have some of the best clients and coworkers a gal could ever ask for....
.. that these storms Monday didn't turn into anything worse. We had two rounds of it.. there were tornado warnings all around and all we got were dark clouds, strong winds and rain...

.. puppy cuddles. Kyli was actually saying here that she was over all the bad weather...

.. this glucose test wasn't worse than what it was. The orange truly did taste like an Orange Fanta, I only had a couple waves of nausea, I didn't hurl, and only had a fierce headache by the end. Coach took me to Outback, got my belly full, came home and had the best nap ever, and felt like a million bucks after. Thank you Jesus because I had to work. I can still do without needles tho.
Now to just get the word that I passed! Certainly don't want to take the 3 hour test...

.. for this gorgeous getaway behind our house. It is so beautiful and peaceful and I can't wait to spend more time with Coach down here...

.. I've gotten SO much cleaned out of the future nursery. All I can say is there is going to be one massive yard sale!

.. for shorter days starting next week. I want to keep working like I am but by the weekend, I am zonked and can't get to the things I really need to work on. So I'm listening to my body even tho my mind says to keep going.

.. for a client who is helping me on finding info on my family's ancestry. My Dad's Dad, Dad's Mom, and my great grandmother, had some serious Cherokee Indian in their blood and I want to find out exactly where we originate from. She is still working on it, I have some questions for my Nanny, and then we'll she'll continue.. Can't wait to post what she finds out!

.. for great doctor visits. Heartbeat has been great, no complaints in the weights dept (not even sure what the number is), and all is measuring good.

.. for my amazing husband who has seriously been the best during this pregnancy and doing his best to make me even more spoiled rotten than I already am. Seriously tho, he just makes me melt.

.. for my massage this week.. WOW it was amazing!

.. for God's goodness, blessings and love.

Welcome to Make-up Monday! 

This post should have already been out today, however, my day got flipped and it's just now being live.. which I'm glad because we had some gnarly weather here today and I would have been out and about in all the thunderstorms/hail/tornado warning weather. Yikes!

So as I mentioned a couple posts ago, I have a new favorite lipliner/lipstick combo that I put together this week and I love it so much I wanted to share!

My favorite makeup that makes up 99.9% of my kit is MAC. I seriously love ALL their products!
Are you aware of their Back-to-MAC program? Turn in six of your empty containers and you get a FREE lipstick. This is how I have scored most of mine. Whoop whoop!

Without further adieu...

Lipliner: Whirl
Lipstick: Peach Blossom 

I LOVE it! 

My goal for Makeup Monday is to share with y'all any and everything beauty related.. my favorites, tips and tricks, new fave additions that will be added to my kit, and more!

Can't wait to share more with you loves!
