10 Best // Ways to Avoid People

September 25, 2014



netflix.  i've been binge watching the walking dead, i've never seen it.  luckily, season 4 comes out on netflix next weekend, so i can be all caught up before the season 5 premiere on oct. 12.  then i might take a break and move over to hulu and binge watch 7th heaven.  don't tell netflix.

cook.  slow cooker breakfast casserole.  easiest thing to make, you just set it the night before.  consistently one of john's favorite things i 'cook' and perfect for day (weekend) long football watching sessions.

shop.  the scandal collection, which was released at the limited this week in time for the season premiere.  i want to be olivia pope.  (without the daddy issues.)  i guess the next best thing is dressing like her.  save money by working some pieces into a work capsule wardrobe, like jess.

save.  money around your house.  be better prepared for the heating costs when the temperature starts to drop.

learn.  10 facts about las vegas.  john and i are planning a vacation there in april so it's fun to read anything about it.  which fact is new to you?  (maybe all of them!)

exercise.  the end of the month is almost here.  have you been participating in september's create your own challenge?  the theme for the month was fitness, and it's never to late to join in.  go for a hike or a long run in the fall weather this weekend and tell us all about it during the link up next week on october 2.


think.  about what you'd like to challenge yourself to for the month of october.  which starts next week, nbd.  we're doing the recap post about september's fitness goals, yes, but we're also gearing up for the next goal.  the theme for october is food.  i haven't quite decided what i'm going to do but there's a lot of options - try a new recipe, cook something with pumpkin, make all your lunches for 2 weeks, put a cap on your grocery budget, make those pinterest recipes you've been saving.  maybe even carve a pumpkin and cook the seeds!  i love doing that before halloween.  and don't forget, you can make any challenge you want and still link up, even if fitness or food isn't your thing for that month!

style.  your house.  feng shui seems so neat.  does it work?  has anyone tried?  i never have, but i want to.  some of the little details of it overwhelm me, but that infographic is a good starting point.  it would be fun to try now that i'm in a new space.

budget.  get on track before christmas/holiday expenses start rolling in.  this is an old post (well, may) but i still use ynab, religiously, and more than ever.  i truly have never had anything really work for me budgeting-wise until ynab.  now i'm on top of my finances at all times (something my mother deemed impossible!)

spend.  no, not money.  time.  not with people of course, but with your dog.  so many benefits of having a furry friend.  and hey, dogs like selfies (maybe just hawkeye.)

  3. I pretty much need to do all of these things, except Vegas. Which I am supremely jealous of. But I now have 10 excuses to why I need to sit at home, in sweatpants and not socialize with people.

  4. 7th Heaven is on Amazon Prime too, which I recently discovered. I'm holding off on that though until my work schedule lightens up a bit because that viewing marathon is going to be a big commitment and take up most of my time and attention. #normal.

  9. Ugh I really need to save money lol I've been on a spending situation and it needs to stop.. I think it's because the cold weather I am on a cardigan-hunt and it's been successful yet dangerous! I haven't gotten into Scandal like that - idk why it just doesn't call me in but maybe in the future I'll jump on the bandwagon. I'm usually late to appreciate stuff. I will appreciate sleep when I'm out of this office later on today actually hmph - For now, I avoid people by popping in my headphones and pretending they don't exist. :) Happy Friday and thanks for linking my post about Vegas love <3 -Iva

  11. I don't watch Scandal, but YES to that wardrobe. Maybe one day when I grow up... I'm going to participate in your October goals, and I think I have decided I will cook more. I love winter-stick-to-your-ribs recipes like stews and what-not, so I'm hoping I'll be successful. Happy weekend, love!

  12. When Steph announced next month was cooking I groaned, I hate cooking and only do it if I have absolutely no other choice. Maybe make an eating challenge, I love to eat!

    1. Not cooking! Food. You choose what it's about! So eating challenge for you it is!
