    1.) Planning so that my wedding is a success
    2.) Completing these accounting credits so I can get promoted
    3.) Save as much money as possible

    I realize those are kind of broad but those are it. A smaller priority is to complete the
    C25K program so I can complete the Phillies 5K and not look like a sweating heavy breathing monster. So far so good. Im on week 6 starting tomorrow.

    - Close on our first home.
    - Get through work, day by day, until my boss comes back from leave
    - Lose weight.  I just saw photos of myself from the wedding last week and I was disgusted.

    Not very uplifting though.... how about this:

    - start thinking about dog breeds for when we move and fence our new yard
    - continue to find new recipes to make for dinner with DH
    - stop drinking so much white wine.  Drink more red instead.

    1) Take time to relax and be lazy with FI (so far soo good on this one)
    2) Spend time with friends
    3) Increase my exercise/activity level

    funny how wedding planning is not in my priorities, should be, however The Knot Checklist zapped my enthusiasim (at least until we go register-hopefully this weekend)

    1) School... I love grad school and I mean that in all honesty... I am trying to make it out alive about 2 semesters early so I am killing myself.  I want to be done before the wedding....

    2) Work to save money...depressing but paying for grad school and saving for a house and a wedding = a lot of work. 

    3) Myself.  I think this weekend I am in need of nails done (at least) I am considering scheduling an apt at the spa tomorrow for this weekend.

    Cara, I like your last one :)

    1.  Get a new job or a whole bunch of them if possible
    2.  Increase my energy level, starting with positive thinking
    3. Take more time for myself and those I love, especially DH.

    1. Spend as much fun/relaxing time with FI as I possibly can!
    2. Plan my wedding to the best of my ability (and try not to be overly stressed about it haha).
    3. Save as much money as possible so FI and I can get a cute house sometime in the near-ish future :-)

    1. Move into the new house-- whether it be in April or March, I don't know.
    2. Get back to my welter weight.  I look a stuffed sausage at Traci's shower.
    3.  Be healthy.  I've had some medical issues that I have put on the backburner for too long and I need to start addressing them.

    1) complete planning a beautiful amazing wedding day for FI and I, with good humor, a handle on the stress and enjoying one of the most important days of our lives :)

    2) finding a new, more challenging, better paying job!

    3) being a smarter spender and saver; buying our first home :)

    1.  Continue to get in better shape, I'm disgusted with myself lately.
    2.  Try to focus on enjoying the time left as a couple DH and I have before we get ready to start a family 
    3.  Flip a property myself, and increase my overall productivity / increase total real estate sales year over year.

    1. Getting myself in better shape. I've let my health get way out of whack the past 6 months... and I'm not happy. More than anything, I just want to be a good influence on my daughter and her health choices.
    2. Paying off all of my debts before the wedding.
    3. Planning our wedding.... that's more time consuming than anything else!

    1.  Loss weight.  I really need to do better eating since I can't work out like I want to.  I'm in a wedding in Oct and I want to look decent.  Then I'll focus on how I want to look at my wedding.

    2.  Find a good budget for FI and me, esp with buying a house.  We are tracking all spending this week to see where we can cut back.  Also find sales for the applicances and furniture I'd like to have when we move... or soon after we move.

    3.  BOOK OUR CRUISE.  FI just got approved for leave, and now I'm just waiting to get paid Thursday.

    Yay for getting approved for leave.
    I can appreciate this because my brother is in the service.
    And getting approved sometimes can just be the longest waiting game (or at least feel like it) ever!

    Well, this was worse than usual since they changed his unit between turning in his papers, and getting approved.  So he had to redo them, and then there was 2 weeks neither company said he was "on their books".  Glad someone can understand this!  Can't wait until he's out in Nov!

    1. Find my motivation to get healthier, especially to exercising on a regular basis. I just cannot get motivated, no matter how bad I look!
    2. Keep myself in balance as my work, home and volunteer schedules get crazy in the next few months.
    3. Find a new church both DH and I love close to our new home.

    1) Grad School - more so doing well, since I get the classes for free
    2) Save. Save. Save. This is particularly hard to do when your FI says their family owned and operated business makes the majority of their money between March-July.
    3) Keep up with fitness and health routines.
