Hi everyone! We had a great weekend celebrating the new 4 year old in our house! I’ll have a birthday recap up later this week, but today I’m joining my Peaceful Posse gals for the monthly goals and mantras linkup!
First I wanted to look back at my November goals and how I did.
~ Bring a bag of clothes and bags to Style Encore to sell Done! I made a nice little amount of money and bought myself a couple of things as birthday gifts to myself. ~Do at least one Thanksgiving themed craft at home with Ollie Done! We made the cutest turkey handprint placemats for Thanksgiving.
~Clean out the bathroom closet and throw away things I do not need. Nope. Not done. Really needs to happen, my closet is very full.
~Get up early three days a week to work out on the elliptical. HAHAHA no. We’re just not going to talk about this one.
~Order our family Christmas cards Done! Just need to work on getting them out to people! ~Plan Ollie’s birthday party and his special mom/dad day Yes! We took Saturday as a family to do a few things and then yesterday had a donut party with our extended family. ~Plan a special birthday date night for me and Nate Yes! We had a lovely night for the two of us. ~Schedule Ollie’s yearly doctor appointment and his first dentist appointment Halfway. The doctor appt is scheduled, the dentist appt is not. But we met some great folks at the Santa event we went to this weekend so I think we’ll be going to them soon.
~Paint another picture. Nope. There just wasn’t time.
Overall I feel pretty good about November. I am hoping to keep December’s goals pretty straightforward and achievable with how busy things can be at this time of year.
~Mail Christmas cards
~Finish up Christmas shopping
~Do a Christmas craft with Ollie
~Find a new pair of walking/running shoes
~Make Ollie’s dentist appointment
~Take some time for myself – a bath, paint a picture, color in a coloring book
Pretty much all of them are related to the Christmas season. I don’t mind though! And my mantras for the month are focused on enjoying the holiday season as well.
I’m going to make this month and this holiday count! Feel free to link up any goals and mantra posts below and check out the other bloggers as well!
