I Ain't Saying She a Goal Digger...

I have a lot of goals in my life. Some of them are simple, like my goal to never have chipped nail polish (I'm usually failing at this), and some are much bigger aspirations, like to get my doctorate degree. I think that it's important to have dreams and to always be striving to accomplish something, no matter what that something may be. I have a never ending list of things I hope to achieve one day, but I'll just give you the short version.

-learn to sew so that I can make clothes for my children
-own a kitten
-find a new job
-adhere to a regular blogging schedule
-be nicer every day
-go back to school
-and so many, many more

So anyways, what's got me talking about my goals is that last month Rachael & Meghan  announced that they'd be hosting a swap all about being inspired to reach your goals. Obviously I jumped right on board. This might be my favorite swap I've participated in to date, and having a fabulous partner surely didn't hurt! I had such a blast getting to know Ashliegh over at The Darling Daily. She has so many amazing aspirations- she wants to open her own boutique, build houses in a third world country, and be crowned Miss America! Since she already runs a really awesome fashion blog, volunteers with Habitat for Humanity, and kills it in pageants I would say she's off to a good start!

My iPhone camera was failing me today

Ashliegh sent me an awesome package, and it was the perfect pick-me-up to come home to after vacation! She sent me a cute "daydream" pedestal which is currently sitting on my desk holding my favorite locket and those adorable spade earrings she sent me, but I can't help but picture it piled with macaroons! She also sent nail polish in my favorite color, lots of chocolate, some 'Merica colored hair ties, clip-flags for work, a magnetic note pad, a journal that I LOVE, and an insanely cute book full of inspirational quotes. Not to mention that it was all accompanied by a super sweet handwritten note :)

There's no way I could pick a favorite item, but that quote book is definitely in the top 10 ;) It was so hard to pick my favorite pages for that picture up there! (the first one is the cover)

Okay, and let's talk about these giant m&m's! They have my mind racing with ideas of how I could use them to decorate some baked goods. You know, if I bought another bag. I already ate that one.

What are some of your goals? What inspires you to accomplish them?
