Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to
experience the world in the way they have been told to.
(Alan Keightly)

Happy Friday, friends! What delightful things do you have planned for the days ahead? The Mister and I are getting settled from a week at the beach, just in time for more fun.

My 27th birthday was back in March, but I still have one final present to enjoy. My dad is generously sending the Mister and I down the road for a staycation at a fancy local hotel. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’m really excited to “get away” without the added stresses of traffic or travel.

I hope the following list of creative to-dos inspires you to do something special, sparkly and fun for yourself this weekend — take a nice long bath, go dancing with your girlfriends or enjoy an afternoon of solo shopping. No matter what’s on your to-do list, try to infuse a little extra creativity and joy!

  • get coffee treat on the way to work on Friday morning
  • savor 3 sweaty and inspiring yoga classes
  • enjoy an in-room massage for two!
  • dress up to go out for a nice dinner out
  • sip drinks at a favorite bar, see where the night takes us
  • cap off the celebration weekend with Sunday brunch
  • do laundry while catching up on Bravo shows
  • upload pictures from the weekend to iPhoto
  • go grocery shopping for next week’s meal plan

I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that.
Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.
(Pearl S. Buck)

Happy weekend to you, my lovely friends! How was your week? I hope you were able to enjoy some sunshine, sparkle and productivity amidst your busy days. My week went by quicker than I expected and I can’t believe the last days of January are upon us!

Since I started on January 1st, today is my last official day of the Whole Living Action Plan. I’m looking forward to sharing a recap of my experience in tomorrow’s Good Eats & Gratitude Post. More than that, I’m excited to celebrate tomorrow morning with my first coffee in 4 weeks! I have all sorts of fun things planned for tomorrow — including some serious spa time.

Do you have anything exciting planned? The following ideas and creative weekend to-dos are intended to inspire. Consider this a friendly reminder to seek out little delights and exceptional joys in the days ahead. Share your plans in the comments below!

listen to a new favorite podcast
run 3.5 miles & practice yoga

No matter what you end up doing this weekend, remember to take a moment or two for yourself. Light your favorite candle, wear fuzzy socks, go out dancing, or buy some treats at Trader Joe’s. Sending love & sparkle your way!

Creative Weekend To-Do List

Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive,
I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,
to expand my heart out to others;
to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others,
I am not going to get angry or think badly about others.
I am going to benefit others as much as I can.
(Dalai Lama)
