March Goals


Pictures from an unanticipated adventure- a high ropes course...a goal I never had decided to complete but am so very glad I did.

I tend to be afraid of goals to some extent. Goals too often become obligatory to-do lists that when I don't completely accomplish them, leave me feeling frustrated. But I'm working on making goals more reasonable for myself. With Kevin working most Saturdays, I make goals for Saturdays about the house work things I would like to complete. With every new week I'm getting better and better at this. So as I was reading a few of your goal posts for the month I thought, I can do this!

I love how many of you look back at the previous month. Giving yourself grace and celebration for what happened to the goals set a month before. I didn't really write February goals, but if I had, it would have been somewhere along the following lines:

*Set a date for our first dinner club Hooray! We not only set a date, we set two and held two dinner club nights. One at our home and one at our friend's home. We're doing the Bread and Wine dinner club.
*Prepare for our small group retreat Oh how sweet a trip this was. I tried HARD to not put too much expectations into it. It was such a good learning experience for me in that way. Overall, the whole trip was wonderful and I'm so glad we finally did it!
*Send in a small group story to the church It's been on my list for a long time and a week ago, I actually wrote it up and sent it in.
*Select girls and pick a date to do the IF Table Just last night over our dinner club with friends, I chatted about how hard this was because I didn't want someone to feel left out. I have such a better peace about this now and I'm really looking forward to actually crossing this one off next month.
*Purchase face moisturizer Back at Christmas time I got a sample from Sephora and really liked it. However, I never actually purchased it and completely meant to. Another month it was missed!
*Get back into my work out/eating regime Ever since Florida, I've been on/off and I'm over it. Unfortunately, it's taken me a bit longer but I'm back on track now! Just not quite enough to cross it off for last month.
* Dream/Research/Plan for our upcoming Hawaii trip on a "Hawaii themed" date night. The theme didn't go quite as well, we were hoping to find a fun seafood restaurant but turned up nothing exciting so we tried a new pizza place, and then hung out at Starbucks for a couple hours researching. We booked a few things and I'm more excited than ever!

*Purchase the face moisturizer cream!
*Stay on track with fitness/eating...2 months to Hawaii!
*Plan weekend for friends coming to visit us.
*Work with a friend on organizing the IF Table
*Stick to my home cleaning schedule.
*Organizer recipe binder: clean out, add new & edit
*Try at least two new recipes that I've pinned, dinners or desserts
*Get back on track with Kevin on doing our weekly prayer journal


  1. The ropes course looks so fun!! We've never done one, but one of our good friends goes all the time. Maybe I'll make that one of my goals ;)

    Yay to Hawaii getting closer!

  2. Oh you just reminded me I should really clean out my recipe binder! Its a mess. I have been trying to clean up my recipes on Pinterest...does that count? Ha!
