June Goals

Watermelon season is in full swing! But who are we kidding, I’ve been eating watermelons since they hit the stores last month and I have no plans of quitting anytime soon.

May goals went pretty well! Let’s see if we can knock all of June’s out of the park.

May Goals
~ start planning freezer meals
~ plan & take a little anniversary/babymoon trip – rather last minute, but we made it happen!
~ host one of my best friends for a week – and she completely spoiled us
~ go on a picnic (totally pulling this from last month) – slipped this in right at the end of the month
~ start monetizing my blog

June Goals
~ get outside/take a walk every day
~ turn another year older
~ make freezer meals
~ finish getting baby stuff & setting up the nursery
~ plan an awesome last date night before baby comes (don’t worry, we still plan on having date nights after she comes)

May Goals

April’s goals didn’t get super far – here’s to hoping May goes better!

April Goals
~ mail in passport applications
~ pass the birth & baby class we just started
~ finish taxes
~ plan something for our anniversary
~ spring clean with amazing-smelling cleaners like this and this
~ go on a picnic
~ order a few canvases – it’s probably about time to print some wedding pictures – well, I ordered one from our maternity shoot for the baby’s room

Spring is finally here in all its storminess! I don’t mind all the rain as long as it stays above 50 and the sun shines once in a while. 😉

March Goals
~ have a maternity photoshoot
~ celebrate Loren’s birthday
~ start planning our Christmas Europe trip (it’s never too early!) – I started passport applications, so that counts, right?
~ spend more time outside
~ eat healthier snacks (but cereal!!!!) – at least I laid off the sugary cereals
~ meal plan BEFORE grocery shopping

February Goals

Raise your hand if you’re ready for warm weather! I’m raising both hands over here. At least the sun came out yesterday and it was glorious. I just need to keep trying to talk Loren into moving somewhere it’s always warm.
Anyway, I’m here to talk about monthly goals, not weather:

January Goals
~ write lots of thank you notes
~ read 3 books
~ host a holiday party
~ blog 3-4 times a week
~ post a home tour
~ make a wreath for the front door (Well, I bought one. Does that count?)
~ organize the pantry

January Goals

Normally on Friday, I would post my Friday Favorites, but since it’s still the beginning of January, I’m going to share my January goals instead. While I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, I do like to set monthly goals for myself.
So here goes:

January Goals
~ write lots of thank you notes
~ read 3 books
~ host a holiday party
~ blog 3-4 times a week
~ post a home tour
~ make a wreath for the front door
~ organize the pantry

Cheers to 2017!

September Goals

Who’s ready for crunchy leaves falling, sweaters and puffy vests, pumpkin everything and cool mornings? While summer is my absolute favorite season, I love the bright and clear fall skies, finally pulling out the booties and cardigans and lighting lots of fall candles.
I realize we are almost halfway through September (how is this possible!?), but it’s never too late for some monthly goals, right?
