October Goals

philip and jude at saranac...aka the most beautiful place on earth
but first...september in review 

  • Exercise 3-4 times a week...mostly achieved i would say. yay!
  • Meal plan for the week...yes 
  • Weekly date night with Philip...yes...some weeks it meant eating in and ordering out to save money on a babysitter
  • Continue reading through my Bible in a year plan...ooh this is the roughest one, i'm sorry to say. it's been really hard to find time to read and be still. this will stay on my list for next month. 
  • Take at least one photo a week of Jude + Carter...mostly yes, but when i was changing carter last night, I thought i really need to keep taking photos. She's growing so fast! 
  • Sell or giveaway clothes I have not worn in over 2 years...yes, we had a crumby yard sale. we live on an unmarked street, but i have sold some things at my favorite local consignment shop and am consigning some online here. I think that link will earn me points if you sign up...fyi. 
  • New fall products online....mostly up, but not all. 

on to October!

  • Get my children to sleep through the night. Sleep is very important to me. I've had a lingering cold for over a week and I think it's caused by sleep deprivation or at least made worse. Carter is almost there - sleeping 9pm-5:30am and then going back to sleep for a little longer. Jude has had some troubles while sort of dropping his afternoon nap and then waking at I don't know...4AM!! My dream is to have them both sleep until 6am. Really 7am would be awesome, but let's start with 6 ;)
  • Find time to read the bible and pray. 
  • Continue to blog 1-2x a week. This was an unspoken goal last month that I decided to speak out loud. 
  • Be productive with my work time, but be present with my family time. I have had a ton more energy to put in my business again. Pregnancy is really hard for me. Once it was over, I finally have enjoyed my business and blog again, but I don't want to miss out on little moments with my family and friends in the midst of pursuing my business. 
linking up with hayley at the tiny twig. i've enjoyed writing monthly goals to help keep me focused...if you are writing monthly goals feel free to link up with hayley or share in the comment section! 


  1. If you figure out that whole sleep thing, holler at me. Because WHOA NELLY. Luke is up by 5am and Georgia Kate is up every 2.5-3 hours to nurse. EVERY NIGHT. I've already got my Christmas list made. Wanna hear it? GO TO A HOTEL WITH A BIG COMFY BED, ALL BY MYSELF, AND STAY IN THAT BED FROM THE MOMENT I CHECK IN TO THE MOMENT I LEAVE. yes, that deserves all caps. This mama is tired!!!

    1. let's just say - one week in....not so hot in the sleep department!! yikes!

  2. Aww, I'm sorry your yard sale was crumy! But WAY TO GO for purging your clothes! Yay!!!

  3. Sleep is IMPORTANT for sure!
    I hope you have great success in helping your kiddos to make it through the night!
    And speaking goals out loud is so freeing, amen?

    I hope your October is totally wonderful! :)
