Ric Rac Dishtowels

I was planning on doing a post about meeting the Pioneer Woman today, but I am still waiting for one photo…so I am going to post these darling dishtowels instead!  :)

Is anyone out there still working on your goals that you set?  I am still using this book, by Connie Sokol, and I am loving the fact that I set a new goal each week and then I REWARD myself!  It really seems silly that a grown woman needs a reward in order to get her goals accomplished, but guess what?  It is working…so I will keep doing it if it works!  My goal for the week was to clean out two, (yes, I have two) dishtowel drawers!  I purged the old ones and washed and ironed all of my aprons and folded everything neatly.  It looks so good, that sometimes I just open the drawer to look at how wonderful it looks!  Well my reward was that I got to make two new dishtowels.  I had this fabric from our trip last March and I still had not made them up, so I told myself that was going to be my reward…to make these darling dishtowels.

Friday’s Favorite Find

Today I wanted to do another one of my favorite finds! 

Since it is the beginning of the new year and a lot of us are thinking about resolutions and goals I wanted to share this book with you.  I am a very type A person and I love to read organizational books and articles! :)  I am a list maker and I love to write in my planner and plan out  all of my “to-do’s” for the day.  One of my biggest problems is that my lists are usually longer than the time in the day!  

I don’t even remember where I read about this book, but I ordered it and have been working on it for 3 weeks now!  I love the concept of this book, that you set ONE goal a week and work on it.  (Not a whole page of them!)  The second thing that I love about this book is that you are supposed to reward yourself!  How many of us women ever reward ourselves?  Not many.  Well, now you have an excuse to reward yourself for the goals that you accomplish!  Gotta love that!  Another thing that you will do with this book is write a life plan.  This little exercise really made me stop and think about what I really want to accomplish in my life time!

The name of this book is:
