4. Hit 10,000 steps on my Fitbit everyday OR 70,000 steps for the week (Sun. - Sat.)
1. Set aside some time in this very busy week to completely unplug and enjoy time with the boys.
4. Walk a mile each day.
9. Hold Usborne Books & More Facebook Party.
10. Send email to company I met with last week at conference to establish our partnership expectations.
There you have it. Those are the things I'd like to complete this week. Really, the list is incredibly longer. If I made a list of all of the Cub Scout stuff I needed to get done, it would absolutely be much, much longer than this. I think that's the point of this goal list, though. There are other things in my life I need to remember to get done that don't have anything to do with Scouts. This isn't a typical week, either. Our end-of-the-year banquet is our largest event and it's happening in just a few days. I suppose it makes sense that I'd be significantly busier than usual. Better get busy....
(Pssst. If you'd like to link up your goals, head over the Money Saving Mom and check out her post on weekly goals!)

When our package arrived, we received a hardcover, full-color ABC storybook and a teacher's guide to using the book. Right away, I loved how nice the book was. It's a good quality, with bright colors and neat pictures. My youngest fellow was ready to get started reading right away.

Seriously, how cute is that set? If you know me at all, or have ever visited my home, you will quickly notice my love of birds and owls. I knew this set would complement my living room so well. When it arrived I was so excited to see how beautiful it was in person. The owl-shaped case that holds everything together is really nice and also includes notches on either side to make retrieving a coaster easy. You don't have to dump the case to get one coaster. The detail work of the owls is splendid. They are light (which is good because in a house full of boys everything is a weapon) and just the right size for my glasses to fit nicely.
I was really excited to get the Solid Wood Game. I wanted to see the quality of it because it looks like something I'd like to give as a gift. Once again, I was completely impressed. The pieces are all of great quality. The extra pieces fit in the box and the "lid" is the gameboard. One side features tic-tac-toe with x's and o's included. The other side is the game Hi-Q. Ok, so truthfully, I had no idea what Hi-Q was when I got this game. Turns out, you put the marbles on the holes and start skipping. The point is to leave as little marbles on the board as possible.
When I started playing with Hi-Q, I managed to have four seconds to myself before the kids were clamoring for their turn. After everyone had a chance to get their best score on Hi-Q, they moved over to tic-tac-toe and played for awhile. Not only is it a gorgeous set, it was a complete win for the kids.
If you are looking for a nice gift, the Solid Wood Game would definitely fit the bill. It's so nice and fun, that it certainly would appeal to people of all ages. In fact, I'm pretty sure my grandpa is going to receive one to keep at his house to battle the grandkids.

I was given the above items to review. My opinion of the products, their quality, and the direct-sales company, Trades of Hope, are my own thoughts and opinions. I was not required or asked to write anything specific.
