Happy October (almost)! October is one of my favorite months and always has been. Between our anniversary, the cooler weather, and all the pumpkin things it’s just such a fun month! But before we get started on all that fun I want to share my October 2019 goals and see what all I did in September which to me felt like a productive month!

October 2019 Goals

In September I wanted to…

  • Read 4 books: YES! I got in quite the reading kick this month.
  • Get at least 10 posts scheduled towards my maternity leave: I think I am up to 30 so I feel really on top of things.
  • Grow 500 on Pinterest: I think I grew about 450 so definitely close.
  • Have one date with Andrew: Eh fail. It’s just really hard. Liam was sick a TON this month with school starting.
  • Get shelving and art hung in the nursery: YES her nursery is about 80% done. There are boxes in there for her car seat and high chair but other than that it should be ready for baby girl once we get a few more things.
  • Get art hung in Liam’s big boy room: YEP! It’s a VERY Cowboys room. My dad had a TON of amazing Dallas Cowboys memorabilia and we hung it all. He was super generous to give it to us.
  • Exercise 5x per week in some form: I did this! I feel good. Even if I’m slow.

In October I want to…

  • Read 5 books
  • Finish baby girls nursery
  • Write thank you notes (we have two showers this month)
  • Do all the fall/Halloween things on our Fall bucket list with Liam
  • Have one date with Andrew at least (our anniversary is this month so this shouldn’t be hard)
  • Start packing my hospital bag (WHAT!?)
  • Spend some quality 1:1 time with Liam
  • Get at least 15 more posts written for the blog

I feel like September was super productive and I am really hoping October is too!

      Setting goals and writing them down in a blog is a great way to keep on track and also allow people to see how they can do the same for themselves. Setting little goals is one of the best ways to maximize your time and keep yourself on track. Really helpful!

      Wow, you did have a productive month! I need to sit down and write out my goals like this so I can see what I got done. My biggest thing for the house was figuring out our plans for a big change we are doing in December. We are switching the office with the playroom, and the old office/new playroom will be a game room since my boys are getting older and prefer tabletop games/toys over floor ones now. We are only waiting until December since my FIL is a teacher and we will need his help for this project!

      Octovber is also my favourite month! I LOVE the fall and everything that comes with it. I love that you are setting monthly goals and tracking them – I need to get better at writinh mine down each month!

      Whoa you’ve been super productive! September flew by it seems, it was just work, work, work for me. In October, I’d love to take quick drive up north to see fall colours.

      Congratulations on a very successful September. It was nice knowing you were able to hit your goals, despite being pregnant and all. Wishing you a great month of October too!

      Your goals leave me exhausted, Mama! – how do you do it all?!? We’ve been fighting back to school bugs here, too, which partly explains my current lack of energy, but still, you are very ambitious! My goal this month is to get ready for my 3rd/final consignment sale of the fall season. I didn’t have enough time to price everything for the last 2, so left a lot of money on the table…

      I wish I had the ambition to write 15 more post this months. I have a hard time managing 4 a month. Great job.

    9. Christa

      Oh wow, you are so organized and productive! You’re motivating me to get my act together. I hope you have a fantastic anniversary!

      Sounds like some really wonderful goals for the month! I bet Liam loves the Cowboys room-what a fun way to decorate his room!
