Monthly Goals:: September 2012

Happy Labor Day friends! Hope you are enjoying the extra long weekend. I know I am! πŸ™‚

Labor Day is always a little bitter sweet for me. Memorial Day always feels like the official start to summer and Labor Day in a lot of ways means summer is coming to an end. This summer girl is certainly sad to see summer go, but I’m going to try and think positively about fall {aka all the fall decorating and baking that is to come}. Which brings me to my monthly goals.

Last month I set a list of monthly goals to accomplish. And in the spirit of holding me accountable, I thought I would give a re-cap with what I actually was able to cross off my list and also make a new set of goals for this month.

August 2012 Goals-Update

1. I have yet to completely update my blog. I’ve made a few small changes, but still have some formatting I need to work on.

2. I did figure out what I want to do over my bed. Yay! {I’ll explain a little more in a bit}

3. I’ve yet to find/make pillows for my bed. It’s still something that’s on my list, just having a hard time deciding on fabric/color scheme.

4. I have taken more pictures AND have been taking pictures in manual mode which was part of my goal. Success!

5. I did try a few new recipes. I made some healthy blueberry muffins and made my own homemade granola bars.

6. I did get some exercise in. For the most part, I walked at least once or twice a week after work and I even rode a bike a few times as well.

Four out of six accomplished, not bad right?!

Now that September is underway, I’ve made a new set of goals for a new month {with a few repeats from last month}.

September 2012 Goals

1.-3. are repeats from last month. Like I mentioned, I did decide what I want to do over my bed and it will involve pallet wood. πŸ™‚ I’ve got the pallet wood all cut down, now I just need to put it all together.

The one thing I do love about fall is getting to seasonally decorate. I’m excited to get our mantle all decorated and make a new fall wreath for our door.

And my last goal for this month is to finish reading a new book. I’ve got a couple books on my reading list and I want to make a point to finish at least one of them this month.

So far I think setting monthly goals {and openly sharing them} is helping me to get things accomplished. So the plan is to keep doing it.

Here’s to accomplishing at least 5 out of the 6 this month!

What’s everyone doing on their day off? Anything fun?
