Do More: Week Two

Time for the weekly check-in! How have I done more since last week?

Be more creative.
Paint and craft more/Use my talents to make meaningful gifts for the ones I love. Made tumblers for all the girls to use at and keep for a momento of Lauren's Bachelorette!

Write more.
Resume writing in my journal regularly. Still writing in The Happy Book :)
Blog more to share life with family and friends. Two posts this week!

Read more.
Read more books and novels that I enjoy rather than watching TV. Definitely going to need some more motivation with this one...

Cook more
Try out 52 new recipes. Pretzel Candy Buttons, Champagne Punch & Breakfast Strata for Lauren's Bachelorette. Fajita Chili Soup. Another surprise goody you'll hear about soon ;)

Spend more time outside. 
Go for a walk outside at least once a week. Went for a walk with Mr. Charming on Monday. Went for a walk/jog with friends on Wednesday. And signed up for a 5k on St. Patrick's Day!
Walk more on campus instead of taking the shuttle. Definitely did this at least four or five times, even when it was raining...do I get double "do more" points for that?

It seems that I keep doing well with the same resolutions, so week three shall be dedicated to focusing on doing more of some different things!

Thanks so much Dree! I've been enjoying it so far, it's been much more refreshing trying to do more of a few things each week rather than having lofty goals looming over me.

Just visited your blog and I love it as well-always excited to have a new blog friend! Looking to live through your blog for some international adventures :)
