october goals

I woke up this morning and just decided it was time to start up monthly goals again. I took a break due to pregnancy exhaustion and then just didn’t feel the motivation to pick back up until now. My plan is to finish out the year with these and then reevaluate how I want to do goals for next year.

When thinking of my goals this month I wanted to keep it fun and easy. These days things are hard enough with raising a toddler, growing a human, and working. There is also the stocking and cross stitching that I’m working on and will try to keep up with. These are just little extra things that I want to add in if possible.

The garland is something I’ve wanted to try for awhile in my effort to add a little to my holiday decoration stash each year. Thrifting is mostly to look for items for our bedroom. VBS is a weekly family-centered gathering at my church during the month of October that we are going to give a solid effort to attend. My mom volunteered to crochet me a blanket for our bed (I’m sooo excited about this) so I just need to choose the yarn for it. And I have a few ideas for a “just for fun” craft I want to do that I’ll be sharing soon.

Yay October! For me it means the beginning of holiday anticipation, our anniversary (five years this Thursday!), and the month when we usually finally get a cool front. I love it.

    Excellent goals! I think you’re smart to keep them fairly limited and fun — you’ve got a lot going on! I hope you share your fall garland with us. =)

    early congrats on the anniversary =) Busy time of year for weddings/anniversaries.

    I hope you post photos of the fall garland. i’m hopefully going to make a fall DIY wreath. Will see how that goes. My first crafty/DIY thing in a long time.
