Happy 2019!!! I sure have missed posting here but I loved the quality time with Liam and Andrew! Liam is off school till next Wednesday so we still have lots more mama/Liam time ahead of us. He is turning two next month and I am in complete denial! I am so glad to be back to the blog and I can’t think of a better way than to share my January 2019 goals with you. Of course I have to see how I did in December too!

January 2019 Goals

In December I wanted to…

  • Take a blog break from Christmas through early Jan to enjoy the holidays with my family. Yes and you know what I think everyone should!
  • Read 4 books. I read 5!
  • Take Liam to see Santa at the mall, Breakfast pancakes with Santa at the fire station, the trains at Northpark Mall, Christmas lights around Highland Park, Santa story time, and as many more things as we can. Oh man we did everything and it was great! Seeing him take in Christmas this year was wonderful. Every morning he would come downstairs and say “hi Christmas tree!” It was so sweet!
  • Bake Christmas cookies for our neighbors and friends. I hosted a cookie exchange but that’s as far as I got. We did get our neighbors some coffee cakes ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Host a white elephant exchange and cookie exchange. Yes and I can’t wait to make it a yearly get together with my girls! Such a fun night with my best friends.
  • Work on closet organization for the new year. We had The Neat Method professionally organize our closet (more coming on that soon) and you guys it’s magical.
  • Get most of January scheduled. January completely done!
  • Grow Pinterest to 25K and Twitter to 16.5K. Eh I’m getting there…
  • Have 2 dates with Andrew. We had one! We planned another but Liam was sick and snuggles with our bub it was!

In January I want to…

  • Read 5 books
  • Start regularly going to barre
  • Organize our kitchen pantry
  • Get all of February posts written and scheduled
  • Have 2 date nights with Andrew
  • Walk outside every day that weather permits
  • Get back into daily meditations
  • Finish planning Liam’s second birthday party (WHAT!?)

      Good luck with your reading goal ๐Ÿ™‚

      I hope to work out at least 10 times in January as well as to remember to do a 1 Second Everyday video (it is an app that mashes up videos from one second of each day and makes for a cool recap at the end of the month/year).

      I love your goals. It is always great to have small and big goals for yourself. I loved your reading goal and I am so glad that you had time well spent with family during the holidays. For many, it is a busy time of year, so it is so important to find ways to slow down. Wishing you a wonderful 2019!

      First off, I love the idea of monthly goals! I want to go on a date with my husband, out of the house, just the two of us. I want to grow my blog and learn how to blog. I would also like to make a special memory with my now 3 year old and 9 month old.

    4. Tiffany Meiter

      Happy New Year! I wish you luck in reaching all of your goals.

      My goals are to try and get ahead of things. I’d like be a month ahead in blog posts, get a cleaning schedule in place so I don’t wait until things are too visibly dirty that it is harder to clean.

      Also, improving health and fitness. Working out a minimum of 3 days a week.

    5. Stephanie

      One of my (personal) goals for January is to clean and organize our master bedroom closet. It’s a huge walk-in and has become a catch-all for everything lately. I also want to get into an exercising routine once the boys start back at school next Tuesday.

    6. Blair

      Happy New Year. Wow thatโ€™s a busy schedule. With a schedule like like this, Im sure you have only shared a small part of what is to come for you, you have have to be organized.

    7. Jessica Hughes

      Sounds like your December goals went great and you have some fantastic January goals. I partook in a “cheat diet” over the holidays and January is all about detox and getting back into my healthy routine.

    8. Marjie Mare

      I love your January goals, they seem realistic and achievable. I can’t wait to hear about Liam’s second birthday party.

    9. Shane Parks

      I love goal setting, and the fact that you put your family goals in with your work goals is so important. It’s all about finding balance in our lives in order to get the most fulfillment! great post!

    10. Kay

      I need to set my goals for each month as this might make my yearly goal more attainable. I definitely want to add meditation to the list

    11. Krysten

      Eek they grow up so fast, don’t they? Hayden turns two on MONDAY and I’m kind of freaking out. But babies scare me, so I’m kind of excited he’s turning into a little human that I’m not so scared of, lol.

      i love this! my goals include things like paint my nails, buy myself flowers, journal… you know, take care of myself! curious about your twitter growth strategy! would you mind sharing?

    13. Christa

      Y kitchen pantry is one of my January goals, too! I love organizing the house at the start of a new year (and itโ€™s too cold to go outside).

    14. Banu

      Happy New Year. Wow thatโ€™s a busy schedule. With a schedule like like this, Im sure you have only shared a small part of what is to come for you, you have have to be organized.

    15. Tizzy Says

      I should join you in walking every day that weather permits. I need to boost my weightloss again as I gained a few pounds over the holidays. I did lose them again, but it is now making me want to lose more.

    16. David Elliott

      I am just impressed at the numbers you are at. It just seems amazing to me what you have been able to do. I really need to rethink some things about the way I have been going about growth. But I am excited to take on challenges nevertheless. Hope you have a great year this year.

    17. Melissa

      Hello! I just found your blog through Pinterest and I noticed based on where you said you went for Christmas that we probably live close-ish to each other. I was right; you live less than an hour from me. I love your blog and have subscribed! I am starting my blog soon, and I donโ€™t know many local people, so hi. ๐Ÿ™‚
