Another weekend is upon us, and I certainly feel like this past week has gone by in a flash!
Things at the office are incredibly busy, which is making each day fly by.  I’ve said “Wait! How is it 4:00, already?!” the past four days, and it hasn’t gotten old yet. 

I have some PTO which needs to be used up before the end of the end of the year [yes! it’s true – tomorrow it will be December].  I’ve scheduled some afternoons off from the office, and today happens to be one of those afternoons.  Left work at 1:00 PM and have been singing “get the weekend started” to the tune of “Get the Party Started" all day long. 

Due to my busy work schedule, I’ve been feeling a little out of sorts and off my game in some of the non-work areas of my life.  I’m determined to put a stop to these feelings ASAP, which brings us to Weekend Cravings, the get your act together edition!  [If you don't know Katy, the lovely lady behind the Weekend Cravings craze, check out her blog!]

 

This weekend I’m craving…

planning, plotting, organizing, and dreaming for the next 13 months.  I’ve got a stack of tools ready to go: 2013 wall calendar and date book, brand new notebooks and list making pads, and a whole grouping of my favorite pens and pencils. Let the list-fest begin!

correspondence.  Birthday greetings to share [ahem.], holiday wishes to send, two ideas to pitch, a phone call with my parents (We’re in a pretty epic game of phone tag at the moment.  Mostly due to my inability to keep my phone charged and off of silent.) and a trip to the post office to send love across the country; getting it done and connecting with people I love to know and admire and enjoy working with!

writing time in a quiet room.  I’ve been completing internet to-do list items each evening after work for the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t been spending much time writing down words that I’ve been meaning to write.  I have dozens of drafts started – for THS posts, of course, but also a TON of HLB things I need to work on, complete and polish. I need to remove myself from all noise and distraction and see what I can let spill out my fingertips, for sure.

crafting time while watching television.  Instead of being productive internet-wise while emptying my Hulu queue [a habit I am no doubt addicted to], I plan to work on a few homemade holiday gifts I’ve decided on for a few friends and family members. I hope to finish some knitting and paper projects I’ve got going on and get a start on a little something new, too.

a warm adult beverage. We picked up some Baileys from the local liquor store recently and I’m dreaming up a tasty ingredient combo to give a spin this weekend. We’ve sipped on small glasses of the Baileys on it’s own [and I must say, YUM!], but haven’t mixed it with anything yet. I see a Hazelnut Baileys Latte in my future!

What are you craving this weekend??

  1. I don’t drink creamy alcoholic beverages very often (that whole lactose intolerant thing), but I crave them every once in a while. Your idea for a Hazelnut Bailey’s Latte sounds amazing!

  2. I love this list!
    My weekend is less about what I’m craving and more about what needs to get done….one last paper for my night course that’s due next week. And some work stuff to catch up on. Hopefully next weekend I can follow through with what I’m craving to do instead ;)

  3. I’m so with you- I’m ready to plan for 2013! I’ve already done a little bit, but I’m excited to do more. And hazelnut Bailey’s?? That sounds amazing!

  5. I am seriously envious of how organized you are! Hope you are enjoying Dec. 1 and feel as much in the holiday spirit as I!! Just put up lights, snowman chotchkies and holly :) And “Glee holiday” is playing on Pandora. Duh.
