New Month, New Goals

Happy October! 
Where in the world did September go?
Wait, where did the whole year go?
I cannot believe it's already October.

With a new month, comes new goals!  
So excited!

Here's a recap of last month's goals and what I really accomplished.
I tried, really.


Relationship Goals:
  • Write 4 different people cards or letters.  Woo!! Got it done!
  • Get together with Kelsey and her husband, Steven! (This one has been on our list since Tyler and I moved to St. Louis!)  Yay!!! We did it!! You can {sort of} read about that here.
  • Write Tyler a note.  Didn't happen.  Oops!!
Homemaking Goals:
  • Meal plan on the weekends (every weekend).  It didn't happen this past weekend, but it did all the other weekends!
  • Clean the house every weekend.  May have not be thoroughly, but I did it!
  • Have  a 15 minute pick-up session every night.  Only happened in the kitchen.
Personal Goals:
  • As I've been sharing (here and here), find a theme for each week.  Didn't happen...had more of a theme of the month.
  • Write a blog plan (I have a rough idea sketched out, but I really want to get in the habit of blogging...as I've stuck with it for over a year now).  Yes! It happened...and I've been more active with my blog recently.
  • Read my Bible daily.  One I had to admit...didn't happen daily, but I did read!
Craft Goals:  (yes, I have craft goals!  It's a hobby, and I have several projects to complete)
  • Make some new items for my shop.  It's open!  You can find my shop here.  Be on the lookout for new things!
  • Finish our wedding card book (yep, still have to do that...a year later.  That's what happens when you live in 3 cities the first year of marriage.)  Didn't happen.  One of these days it will.
  • Finish my fall napkins and start a new project (TBD).  Got all of them done except 2 of them.
>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<

Even if I didn't mark everything off my list, I got some of it done.
It's a start to living intentionally...for a purpose.

So as we go into October, here are my new goals:

Relationship Goals:
  • Write 4 different people cards or letters.
  • Write Tyler a note.
  • Invest in my new friendships.

Homemaking Goals:
  • Meal plan for a couple weeks at a time. (I want to get back in this habit.)
  • Sell/give away clothes and other things we don't need.
  • Make one new recipe a week.

Personal Goals:
  • Keep eating healthy.
  • Start on my birthday list.
  • Take some time for myself...don't get too busy.

Craft Goals:
  • Work on Fall/Christmas items for the shop.
  • Start on a Christmas list for family/friends.
  • Finish Fall napkins so we can use them at Thanksgiving!!

So those are my goals for this month.  
What are some of yours?
What will you have accomplished by the end of October?
