September Goals!

(1 Sept) I can't believe September is already here!

It seems as though the 1st of the month always sneaks up on me!  Like, hello!  Where did August go!?  Thanks to Shay I was reminded to look back at my August goals to see what I accomplished & didn't accomplish & that it's time for September goals!

Speaking of that sweet girl, she's the one who inspired me to write out my monthly goals & it has helped SO much!  Do y'all follow Shay?  If not, you most definitely should.  She is just the best - plain & simple!  Later this month she's designating a day (Sept 20th) as a "Treat Yoself Day" for all of us hard working ladies to take some time to do something, anything for ourselves - this will be the day to put your foot down & do it!  Click the link above to find out more!

Let's take a look at August Goals....

+ Buy groceries & cook dinner... Once our kitchen is done, this will be easier
+ Workout ... Again, once house projects are done I can fit this in
+ Organize office / craft room... work in progress!
+ Plan a date night for Matt & I
+ Finish picking out wedding pictures
+ Help Kimberly pull off the best 30th Fiesta... Check!
+ Complete Living/Breakfast Nook/Kitchen project ... we are almost done!
+ Stay on or under budget for August... Failed miserably!

I can say that I did a little better than July but, definitely not great.  This house project has taken up almost any spare time I 've had so I decided I'm wiping the slate clean here & starting completely over with my goals.  Some will stay on for September but, I'm not going to beat myself up for not completing all of the above & keep them on just because they're incomplete.

September Goals

+ Finish front of the house remodels - we are so close!
+ Go to favorite gym 3 days/week
+ Set up budget... and stick to it!
+ Pay off two debts!!
+ Plan 21st Birthday lunch for little brother! Oh my gosh how did <---  that happen!?  I just took him for show & tell in Kindergarten yesterday!!!
+ Build dining room table
+ Decorate for Fall .... This makes me all kinds of giddy!
+ Share house updates
+ Share wedding pictures
+ E-mail wedding photographer & order coffee table book
+ Finish craft / DIY projects for front of house decorations
+Participate in Treat Yoself Day
+ Plan a date day/night for Matt & I
+ Plan Dad's birthday lunch!
+ Refinish bedside tables for master bedroom
+ Finish organizing the office
+ Work on projects for new project

Hmm... Talk about not beating myself up if I don't complete any goals!?   I know this month that we will not be consumed with the house project as we are (hopefully) nearing the end & finishing touches.  The days aren't already running together like they did in August and that alone lets me breath a little easier.  I'm excited for the month of September... it brings birthdays for 2 of my favorite guys among with a lot of new things... new (looking) inside of our house, Fall decorations, candle scents & hopefully cooler weather!  Keeping my fingers crossed for that one, we're still in the upper 90's - 100 here!  There's some personal stuff going on too that I won't go into too much here on the blog but, if all goes as planned a huge weight will be lifted off of mine & Matt's shoulders.  That alone could make this the best month.

What are your goals for September??

What are you looking forward to this month?


  1. Hang in there sister, you're almost there! I think your September goals are do-able...there seems to be a lot of smaller things on there that you can get crossed off. And if you're like me, you get freakishly giddy about crossing things off your to-do list!

  2. School is over taking our house upgrade. My september goal was take a break! Lol Your house is looking great so that hard work is paying off (; Good luck on your goals!

  3. You've got this, girl. I've got faith! :) Hope you're doing well. xo

  4. It's so good that you write your goals down! I need to start doing that so I can hold myself accountable.
