Goals for 2020

Happy New Year!!!! I hope that everyone had an awesome holiday season and has jumped into the new year and decade with positive thoughts and healthy intentions. The end of last year was a very busy and transitional time for me. There was a position change with my job, I finally got below 200lbs in…

I need to explain…

Hello Everyone, I wanted to send a quick post to talk about what’s been going on and why I haven’t been posting as much.  When we came back from Paris, we noticed that Sasha, my beautiful fur-baby, was worrying her foot.  Upon closer inspection, we noticed that one of her toenails was sitting straight up. …

Bonjour, Mon Ami

Todays post will include some more pictures from our trip to Paris in March.  I know it is the middle of May, but the month of April was super busy and I’m still dealing with some new adventures that have and are occurring in the Cork household.  I did share pictures of Notre Dame after…

Notre Dame….without the destruction

With the recent destruction and devastation that occurred in Paris last week, I thought I would share my photos of our visit to Notre Dame Cathedral.  I had planned to share this photos anyway, but I had planned to post in the order of the things that we did each day.  Notre Dame was one…

Bonjour, Mon Amie!

Yep, we did it, we went to Paris.  It was something that we had been wanting to do for awhile, and my husband found out that our city recently started having direct flights to Paris that aren’t terribly expensive.  So last year around Christmas he announced that we were going to Paris for Spring Break. …

New Clothes For Me?

Recently in my weight-loss journey I have come to the point where my clothes are starting to be a bit too baggy. The majority of my dress slacks are pretty expensive because of my long legs (I’m not super tall – only 5’10.5” – but I have long legs – 36” inseam). For my good…

Another Goal Part 2….Finances

Last week I talked to you about setting and keeping to a budget.  This week I’ll continue with my Financial goal discussion.  So, I’ve set up the budget planner.  Another thing I decided to fix was my credit card and medical bill debt.  I had a major surgery back in 2015.  This surgery was supposed…

My Third Goal

This weeks post is going to focus on another goal that I set for myself this year – taking better control of my finances. The first thing I should mention is that I have always established a budget and for the most part I follow it.  Scratch that, I have always kept track of what…

One of many goals….

Hello everyone, At the beginning of the year I mentioned that I had several goals that I would be working on this year; and that I would share what they are at a later date.  Well, the next few post (not including the weekly planner spreads) will discuss what they are and how I’m going…

After Christmas Haul

The other day, I had to pick up some things from the grocery store that I forgot to purchase – Babydoll was returning to school and I had forgotten some lunch essentials.  My first thought was to go to Meijer, but that wasn’t really in the area that I was in; Walmart was.  I don’t…
