Top Ten Tuesday

Aloha, Readers!

Today is Top 10 Tuesday! Do you remember learning how to brainstorm ideas in school?  Well, that's a tool I use often when writing blog posts.  I give myself a time frame and jot down anything that comes to mind, no judgement about whether it's a good topic or not- everything gets listed.  

It's a great way to get those creative juices flowing!

Top 10 Tuesday is a way for me to purge some of the randomness that flows through my head.  I make a list numbered from 1 to 10 and then fill it in with whatever thoughts come to mind.  I don't skip a thought, either.  Just keep filling up the list.  

Once I have my list, I expand the topic with a little more detail, if necessary, to give my readers a bit more insight as to what is going on in my crazy head space.

Feel free to join in on the "head space clearing/purging" party! Grab my button on the left of your screen and link up below =)

1. We have GOT to get into a routine.  Slowly but surely we're starting to find our new "normalcy" but I'm not sure if we're completely settled, yet. I get an hour to myself after work and that's it.  An hour to blog/shower/exercise.  It's not like I get to do all 3, those are just my choices.  And for the most part watch TV/shower has been winning out (I don't like to give TV the opportunity but it is just sooo hard!)

2. I wish I could take a few days off to clean my house.  Seriously.  I have so much organizing/purging to do that I just can't get it all done!  See above.

3.  We're moving in July/August.  Part of me wants to find a completely different area to live but another part wants me to stay in the same complex.  We're moving because our lease is up and we would like to expand into a two bedroom.  Where we live is pretty central to everything.  If we moved futher west, where it's more affordable, we'd be closer to the husband's workplace.   But I'd have to drive in that horrendous traffic EVERY. MORNING. Didn't you know that Honolulu has the worst traffic in the US? Now you do....

4. My son is growing sooooo fast! He is now 5 months and wears 9 month size clothing.  He is so full of personality and love, I can't stand it! He brings so much joy to our lives =)


5. Bed Bath & Beyond is my Disneyland.  I cannot spend enough time in that store.  The only reason I leave is because I have a hungry baby to tend to or my husband throws a tantrum (not literally, but almost).

6. Speaking of Disneyland, I wish I went more often when I lived in California.  Now that I'm in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I wish I took advantage of travel opportunities more often.  Don't get me wrong, living in Paradise is amazing but it's about $600+ just to get out of the state, at least!!

7.  We have bought our tickets to California for a family trip later this year.  I am so excited! I haven't left the state in almost 2 years! I used to visit California at least once a year but now the only flying we do is inter-island.

8.  We are contemplating moving out of state.  Scary.  But aren't all great adventures scary at first?

9.  I wish I got paid to browse Pinterest.

10.  We subscribed to Netflix thinking we would cancel our cable, you know, cut down on some bills.  Um... it's been a month.  We still have cable.

What are the Top 10 thoughts taking up real estate in your head?  Go ahead and share one or two (or all ten!)
