january goals update

Happy Monday Friends!

Can you believe January is more than half way over? Where has the time gone!? Today I'm linking up with Jenn for a check-in of my goals for the month. I really love this link-up because the combination of how encouraging Jenn is and the added accountability of posting my goals for others to see, is really helping me to stay motivated. 

1. This is my 10th post this month, so I'm almost there! Monday, Tuesday, Friday have seemed to be the days I'm most likely to publish a post, if I keep at that pace I'll have exactly 15 by the end of the month. 

2. Done! I picked up Where'd you go, Bernadette from the library the other week and read it in 3 sittings. I would for sure recommend it to everyone. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to go hug your mom when you're finished reading it. Seriously, go find a copy of it now and get to reading. Now I'm trying to decide what to read next. Any suggestions?

3. Done! Last week on my off day I called my old roommate and had a great hour long chat. Megan and I lived together in our sorority house Spring of Junior year. It was almost like old times in Room 16, just laughing and talking about everything going on in our lives. It's so strange to go from seeing each other every day to not talking for weeks because we're both so busy with life. This little catch up was much needed and seriously put me in such a great mood. 

4. This is on my agenda for today. But it was also on my agenda last Monday and that didn't happen. Hopefully I don't get sidetracked this time and I'll be able to knock this one out in no time. Plus I have a little bit more incentive to get it done this time, so I'm feeling pretty good about being able to check it off the to-do list. 

5. I still have 2 more drinks this month. So far I've indulged in 2 beers while at home and this tasty Mandarin Cosmo when we went to dinner for my mom's birthday last week. Fun fact: this was the same drink that I ordered on my 21st when we went to the same restaurant

How are you doing with your goals for the month/year?


  1. that drink looks like it was worth one of the 5 spots!

  2. Making great progress!! Hope it all comes together by the end of the month.


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
