Sunday Social #I’ve Lost Count

Sunday Social

Happy weekend, friends! We just got back from visiting the breeder. I got to hold a sweet 10 day old puppy who we’ll be bringing home in 7 weeks. I could gush more but I won’t. Save that for tomorrow! If you are stopping by from the link-up, feel free to leave your link to your post in the comments. 

Let’s get started:

1. What is something you have wanted to do but are afraid of?

I would like to start aggressively saving for retirement. But really, I’m saving a regular amount. I have the funds, just not the willpower to avoid Target, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls and put the money in my IRA instead. I wouldn’t say I’m afraid but I would say I’m nervous about how much it would affect my lifestyle if I really cut back.

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Woof. Talk about a loaded question.
In 5 years I’ll be 29. 
I hope I’m happy, first and foremost.
I imagine I’ll be married. 
Maybe pondering kiddos.
Still trying to change the world.

3. What are you looking forward to before the end of 2012?

I know I mention this way too many times but I’m beyond excited to get our golden retriever puppy. The name list changes seriously every day and we can’t agree on a single name. But I’m loving coming up with names lists and I’m just generally so excited, I really can’t contain myself. We went to visit our breeder today! You’ll hear more about that tomorrow.

4. What are your hopes for your blog?

I hope that I continue to find my voice and really come across as “me” in my writing.
And I hope more people find my blog and stick around to follow my journey.

5. Do you always see yourself living in your current town/city?

Absolutely not. I knew I’d come back to the east coast but I never thought I’d be where I am. But everything works out in the end and I’m really happy I’m here.

6. What is your morning routine

7:36am (and not a minute sooner) Peel myself out of bed
7:36-7:54am Make Nav breakfast and lunch
7:55am Nav leaves, I make myself coffee
8am Sit in recliner, drink coffee, watch a crappy re-run
9am STEP class at the YMCA where I’m the only person who isn’t retired or a SAHM
10am Shower, get ready for work
10:20am Make breakfast for myself, sit and eat while I check on the blog
10:55am Head to work

I know, I have a totally sweet schedule.

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful Sunday!

  • I am so jealous of your morning routine. I wish I didn’t have to go to work until 11. You are super lucky lady!

  • Yeah, that schedule is pretty awesome. Kudos to you for getting up and making someone else breakfast. I’d be selfish and sleep in. I’ve been saving for retirement the last couple years and I have it set up on an automatic draft. It really helps keep away the “temptations” and I just live like I have $100 less per month. You might ask a financial adviser person about setting up a tax-sheltered annuity on automatic draft. :o)

  • What a nice morning routine! I’m super jealous. I need to save for retirement too… right now it looks like I’ll be working til I’m 100! So exciting about your puppy, can’t wait to hear more!

    Oh so exciting, puppies are the best! I have always wanted either a big golden or a little sassy dog like a pug or french bulldog. They’re all too cute! Cannot wait to see your little love in 7 weeks!

  • Yay for a puppy!! I had a golden growing up… best dogs ever. 🙂

  • You do have a totally sweet schedule! And I can’t wait for PUPPY pictures!

  • Can’t wait for puppy stories! I want a golden retriever so much! Also, I’m new to this Sunday social thing? I’m new to your blog!

  • That schedule sounds amazing! Visiting from the link up and now I am a new follower! You are so cute!

  • Just found your cute blog through the give away. Would love for you to stop by and follow along if you’d like 🙂

  • newest follower! hope you will stop by!
