When Jon asked what I wanted to do tonight, I said I really wanted to just be home and not work.  Those were my two stipulations.  So, we’re planning on staying in and getting some serious cuddle time:)

I’m attempting to store up husband time, so I don’t go into withdrawals while I’m out of town this weekend!  I hate being away from the husband!  I can count on one hand the number of times we’ve spent the night away from each other in our four years of marriage…and that’s the way I like it; however, sometimes it’s just the right thing to do.  I tried to con him into coming along for the HLS ride, but he declined.  Something about $300+ plane flights and a day job.  I don’t know.

Anyway, I’m off to bed.  I’ve got an early coffee date in the city with a good friend of mine, so I gotta get some shut eye.


Now tell me one goal that you have for this next year or one goal you’ve accomplished in the past year!

    What a lovely idea! That’s quite a long list you’ve got there but I do love your number 1 priority 🙂

    I’m rubbish at being away from the husband too; in fact I avoid it all costs! I don’t mind him being away for one night but I’d rather not go away myself or have it be any longer than that. However, I would love to be able to go to the Health Living Summit! Gosh, we need to move to the US; for sure. xxx

      Glad I’m not the only one – sometimes I wonder if I’m crazy.

      I wish so badly you were going to be at HLS! Maybe next year:)

    Sometimes just staying in is the best way to celebrate. Love your list. I want to travel more too.

    Great list! Number 10 is a big one for me…working on that slowly.
