november goals

November 1, 2013

I thought that today I could share cute photos of our Halloween adventure, but remember how Meredith is two? Yeah, the evening was a little rough. I barely got any pictures at all and let’s not talk about how hard that is for me to let go of. Moving on, and instead let’s talk about monthly goals.

First a recap of October’s goals:

1. Make a fall garland: did it, and shared it.

2. Go thrifting: did it, only found a few small things but it was fun.

3. VBS: did it and didn’t miss a single week.

4. Choose blanket colors: did it, and my mom purchased the yarn & started crocheting!

5. One craft just for fun: did it, but it didn’t turn out quite as good as I planned so I didn’t blog about it.

On to November!

Holiday minibook: I want to get all my supplies in one place and the minibook put together before December so it’s easy for me to just add photos and extras as I go.

Photo a day: I’ve been slacking on taking photos so I decided to do a photo a day challenge. I love the “from where I stand” photos so that’s what I’m going to do, starting with day one as you can see above. I’ll post them all to Instagram and hopefully it will get me thinking creatively regarding pictures again.

Day in the life: At the beginning of the year I intended to do this once a month but it only happened twice before I got pregnant and since then I haven’t picked it back up. I want to do it again this month and evaluate how often to repeat it.

Dresser situation: We need to play musical dressers around here. We need a new one for our bedroom so that we can move our current one into the guest room and use it to store extra baby stuff. So part of this goal is also to reorganize the toddler and baby clothes I have to make space for baby boy’s things.

Bedroom: A few nagging tasks need to be done in the bedroom, putting up the curtain rods and installing new outlets. This isn’t hard to do, and I have all the supplies, but it is kind of tedious and annoying.

And that’s all. Once again there is nothing life changing here but mostly fun stuff as I get back into the habit of monthly goals.

    From Amanda:

    What a fun photo challenge! I need to get back on the photo wagon in the next few months. I’m thinking about doing a project 365 since it’s been about 3-4 years since I did one, but I’m on the fence ha.

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    I don’t miss all the rearranging that goes with making room for another person in the house! I finally gave up trying to completely clear out his closet… I figure he wouldn’t notice if I stored some stuff in his closet for at least a couple more years — right? =) I’m really excited about the december mini-book, I can’t wait to hear what you have planned!

    From Nora:

    We have always found that the smallest home projects take the longest to accomplish: hanging photos, getting curtains put up, etc. I feel your pain there, my friend!
