November Goals

Can you believe it's November 1st already!? The winter holidays are soon upon us and I'm sure they'll make these next 2 months fly by - before you know it, February will be here! Where did the year go?!

Time to take a moment and look back at the goals I made at the beginning of October, see how I did, and then make new goals for November!

1. Enjoy our trip to Dallas
As seen by my post the other day, I did enjoy our trip (minus the last 24hours of it), so I'd say this was a success!

2. Don't spend too much money on Jay
I'd like to say we did pretty good on this one - we bought him some Cowboys related items down in Dallas, but we had planned on doing that, and I don't think I've spent too much this past month on other cute things for him - I've been pretty good, if I may say so myself!

3. Eat a slice of pumpkin pie
I haven't officially had a piece of pie, although I have gotten the pumpkin pie Blizzard at Dairy Queen a few times this past month... I wouldn't call this one a complete bust, but I have yet to eat actual pie yet.

4. Finish Kyle XY
I did that! And posted my thoughts about the show too - kinda wish it had a 4th season like they were planning to tie everything up as it ended with some really major cliffhangers as they weren't planning on being canceled and figured they'd have a 4th season to wrap up some of the major stuff and maybe end it. For a teenage sci-fi drama though, it was pretty good!

5. Finish Lego Star Wars Wii
Nope, although I did finish Episode 4 and so I only have the last 2 to go (which is like 12 levels).

6. Finish 1 Book
Yep - I finished "A Touch of Dead: The Complete Sookie Stackhouse Stories" by Charlaine Harris. It's a book that compiles 5 Sookie short stories that take place throughout the series and it's a good way to fill your Sookie-verse fix while you wait for the next season of True Blood or for the next book to come out. I also started "World War Z" by Max Brooks too as I figured with Halloween this past weekend, it was an appropriate book to read!

7. Work on my cross-hatch project
No, I kinda forgot about this one... although I did finish the panels that go over my stove AND I put together a centerpiece (sort of) for our kitchen table!

I think 4/5 out of 7 aren't bad for last month!

Now, goals for November:
1. Finish Lego Star Wars Wii
2. Finish my book and start a new one
3. Enjoy Thanksgiving
4. Continue on the home-owning/house-hunting stuff
5. Eat some pumpkin pie!
6. Don't stress about money
7. Take stuff to goodwill (I have 2 bags I keep meaning to take)
8. Go see a movie in the theaters (we haven't in awhile!)
9. Find a winter coat that fits and a pair of boots I can wear
(since I'm preggo and my normal winter coat doesn't zip over my belly and my only boots are heels).


  1. Good job on your goals!!

    And, regarding boots, might I recommend the Ugg boots? I know they are often referred to as "UGGly", but they are seriously the most comfortable boots I have ever placed on my feet

  2. I was actually hoping to get a pair of Ugg's as I think those would probably be best. Walmart had imitation ones for like $12 but when I looked today they didn't seem very thick and seemed a bit short - we usually get at least a foot of snow so I need something a little higher than ankle boots =)


What's your thoughts?
