April goals


My goals for the month of March were kind of funny. I mean who was I trying to kid? It was pretty much survival mode. I just had a baby and I was moving 2,000 miles across the country. My daily goal was to get as much done as I could. I went to bed most nights telling myself I would do whatever the undone thing was the next day.

But for the sake of consistency, I will review the goals I set in March.

1- Eat 4-5 servings of fruits/veggies per day. I tried and made improvements, but didn't meet this goal every day. And then there was Easter candy...

2- Send out Bodie's birth announcements. I was waiting to get out PO Box in Flagler. I will send them out in April.

3- Bake Irish soda bread. Yes, I did this one before I packed all my baking pans.

4- Not feel guilty for snuggling my newborn. I tried, I really did. Things were not as clean as I would have liked the house to be when I left, but we did it.

5- Keep up with thank you cards. I was able to keep up until those last few days and now I'm just way behind. I was blown away by the friends who stopped by in our last days in MA to say goodbye and humbled by the help we received upon arriving in CO. I'm just so grateful.


My goals for this month are pretty basic, but I still wanted to set them for the sake of consistency and giving myself something to work toward. 

1- Make healthy lunches. This is just as much for Maggie as it is for me. While I don't expect to get into a routine this month (but maybe?), I do want us to try to eat healthy lunches which really just means, protein, fruit and veggie. If you have suggestions or go-to lunch ideas, please share! Tweet me or leave a comment below.

2- Introduce some pre-school activities into our weekdays. I've been inspired by some other mamas I follow on Instagram and mentioned this already. I bought a few supplies (pom poms, popsicle sticks, construction paper). I will need to spend some time planning activities for Maggie to do, but thankfully there are a ton of resources online. 

3- Unpack my clothes and finish setting up our bedroom. We've unpacked almost everything in the house, but our bedroom needs some attention. It's the easiest place for me to forget since I don't spend any time in there unless I'm in bed (I'm usually in one of the kid's rooms or our living/dining room. Brandon unpacked all of his clothes, so hopefully that will motivate me to do the same.

4- Mail out those birth announcements. I can also let everyone know our mailing address. Seriously, this needs to get done.

5- Watch the sun set. The sky out here is HUGE and I often catch glimpses of the brilliantly colored sky as I'm taking my daughter to bed, but I want to go somewhere with an unobstructed view of the sun setting.
