February Goals


Monthly goal-setting is one of my favorite things. I love goals that are short-term and monthly seems like just the right amount of time to accomplish a lot of smaller tasks. Also, I promise they're not all last minute things to do before baby comes (but two are).

Before I get into my goals for a new month, I'll hold myself accountable with a brief update from my January Goals.

1- Blog two to three times per week. I can't believe I actually did this. I wasn't sure I'd have enough to say to get back into a blogging rhythm of doing it two to three times per week, but I did. I am a big believer in consistency. 

2- Get the nursery ready. I am pretty ready as far as having a space setup and functional for the baby boy.

3- Get to bed by 10pm. I did pretty well with this one too. 

4- Rest. I napped some weekends and did not schedule much, so I feel like this was also accomplished.

5- Keep up with First 5. I discovered the app through an Instagram ad, which seems odd but I love it. It's a Bible study from Proverbs 31 Ministries that looks at one chapter of the Bible per day. I love that it's concise enough I can read/digest it for about 30 minutes before my daughter gets up, but also has some video content sprinkled throughout.



February Goals

1- Post a picture on Instagram every morning. For the last two years, I posted a picture capturing some portion of my routine or aspect of my morning with the #goadabodemornings. It is a fun way to look back on a short period of time (one month) and see what has changed and remained constant over the past two years. I'm really excited to do it this year since we expect to add another child to our family!

2- Sort, wash and put away all baby boy clothes. We have gotten a bunch of baby boy clothes from friends and family, which I am so grateful for. I need to take time to sort through them and get organized a bit before he arrives. Hopefully that nesting instinct will kick in soon!

3- Finish strong in the office. I am not so concerned with sticking to a date on the calendar (that says when my maternity leave begins), as I want to complete projects I've been working on. I've made a good amount of progress this week already, so I think I'll be able to go on maternity leave with peace of mind.

4- Read/listen to two books. I am so bad at finishing books unless they are in an audio format I can listen to. 

5- Create a labor playlist. I've been unintentionally putting this one off. I keep thinking of songs I want to include on the playlist, but I have yet to actually sit down and create the playlist.
