October 2014 goals

1 October 2014

Hooray for crisp air, babbling brooks, pink sneakers, everyday adventures, and the month of October!


September goal recap:
Sort pile in small bedroom
Weekly tennis dates with John in addition to our monthly couples tennis dates
Edit and sort photos from Natalie + Joe’s wedding weekend, Maine, and family Christmas card shoot
Open an account at my local consignment shop and bring in items to sell
Write at least 8 blog posts this month

Yeah!! Feeling pretty good about my progress last month! The only thing I did not check off was selling my clothes at a consignment shop. I actually tried – I rounded them up and took them in – but they said they weren’t currently accepting items and to call back in three weeks. Harrumph. I only have about five items to sell, and I’m wondering if I should continue to pursue the consignment route… or perhaps I should try to sell them on instagram? Or post them on the lightly-used EFM Facebook page? Happy to hear any thoughts or advice from friends who have successfully sold clothes recently.

On to October goals!
— Finally paint our front door now that the weather is cooler!
— Make sure my voter registration is correct after our move last year
— Dust/spot clean the inside of my car

Aaaand… that’s it!

Well, not exactly – I’m also planning to check off many of my fall to dos this month, including but not limited to picking apples, hosting a pumpkin carving night, handing out candy to trick or treaters, cheering under the Friday night lights, making pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, and frequenting the NC State Fair. On top of that, I’m traveling to New York/New England twice, and welcoming house guests one of the other remaining weekends. It’s going to be a great month! :)

If you’ve posted October goals, I’d love to take a peek – leave a note in the comments!

P.S. The Caitlin Wilson Designs giveaway is open until Friday!
