September 2015 Goals

1 September 2015

Well, I was on a good streak there for awhile where I was checking off 100% of my monthly goals… but not this month. I’m not sure if my apparent response – to double my usual number of goals for September — is the correct one, but I’m going for it! Lots to do, and one of my favorite months to do it in!

Revisiting my goals for August:
Frame and hang our two new pieces from Framed & Matted Love them! More about this soon but you can see one here.
Finally paint the tray I primed about a year ago (No progress here… moving to September)
Make progress on goal no. 37 Made progress here, including a new storage solution and some weeding out!
Post an updated house tour here after our tour appears on Southern Weddings (Not yet – have to finish photographing a few of our less-finished spaces. Moving this to September!)
Do some sort of exercise every single day this month (I probably missed about 10 days. While working out 2/3 of the days in a month is good, it’s also my norm, so I didn’t really get at the heart of this goal!)

September goals:
— Paint my tray
— Post an updated house tour
— Start a registry for Baby Thomas
— Run my first ever 5k!!
— Make nursery plans so that we are ready to paint when my parents come in October
— Celebrate our third anniversary!
— Volunteer and shop at my church’s awesome kids consignment sale (if you are local and want to go, here is the info!)
— Finish organizing our upstairs closets
— Visit my younger sister in Nashville! Figure out how we are going to eat twenty meals in 2.5 days!

If you’ve posted your goals somewhere, I’d love to see – or just drop them in the comments!

  1. You’re going to have so much fun in Nashville! I was there earlier this summer, and I also had about three days to cram in a plethora of incredible meals. I think we succeeded in getting several amazing + representative meals of Nashville in (plus, there was a peach festival while I was there!). I’m headed to NYC for a long weekend & have a similar “problem!” Enjoy!

  2. Yippeeeeee for third anniversary! And for starting to plan a little place for Little Baby Girl Thomas to lay her sweet head! Fun fact: our cousins are also having a girl in January and their last name is also Thomas. :)

  3. I accomplished almost all of my August goals including running a 1/2 marathon and am working on listing out my September ones today – http://commit30.com/commit30/goal-setting-inspiration/ – Like I like to say, Make it Public, Make it Happen. :)

  4. I’m impressed you’re going to run your first 5k while preggers! ;) And YAY! Happy 3rd anniversary!!! We’ll be celebrating our sixth this month too! Looks like our hubbies share the same birthday AND we share the same anniversary month! :)

  6. Emily! I always love sharing monthly goals with you. You are one of my favorite examples to share with goal-setting friends of “progress not perfection.” You always approach the goals you didn’t complete with such grace and renewed focus. It’s a great reminder that it’s about taking steps forward, not perfectly checking off a list. That’s also a lot of what I talked about in my monthly post. Here it is: http://www.wearetlk.com/tlkblog/2015/8/31/september-2015-goals

  7. So many good things!! I’d be happy to share my 5k playlist on Spotify if you want–it served me well :) And I know you have very handy parents but if y’all ever need any extra hands on deck getting little Miss Thomas’ nursery ready, please call us anytime!

  8. Yay for September being such a lovely month all-around! I’m a little late to share my goals this month but here they are :) http://www.kylamary.com/2015/09/september-goals-2/

  9. I can’t believe you’ll be running a 5k while pregnant! Good luck to you! Here are my September goals: http://thebellelumiere.net/2015/09/09/september-goals-2/
