Believe 2016: November Goals

It's time for another month of goals, this time that includes gearing up for two weddings and the holiday season. October was rough. R-O-U-G-H rough. Good in ways, too, but this last week has done me in, so I can't say I'm sorry to see it go. November has some great potential, and I can't wait to see what happens this month. Let's do this, y'all! 


Making October Happen
Verse of the month: Isaiah 51:3
"For the Lord comforts Zion; he comforts all her waste places and makes her wilderness like Eden, her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the voice of song."

1. Go to Silobration with Rachel! This was AMAZING. I was so glad to get some quality girl time with Rach, complete with a trip to Waco for the Magnolia Market Silobration and Johnnyswim concert. It was a blast!

2. Survive These Shining Lives. Survive is the right word, let me tell ya. But my kids made it happen. I'm SO proud of the show we ended up with!

3. Host my sister's wedding shower. Check, check, check! Lots of friends and family flooded into my parents' home to shower the bride-to-be with gifts! Now onto the Bachelorette party!

4. Powersheets Goal Refresh. BOOM! Done and ready to go! The goal refresh definitely helped when it came time to set November's goals.

5. Have a Sabbath weekend. This weekend... was something. Saturday was restful though, complete with a massage to help break up some of the tension I've been carrying in my shoulders since the start of grad school.

6. Finish the 5+ books I've started. Womp. I'm halfway through Present Over Perfect and Uninvited. I did finish I Don't Wait Anymore and it was excellent. All my single ladies, it better be your next read!

7. Set a post-show school routine. I'm working on it, so it's in progress. A few changes to be made, but there is more work to be done.

8. Ketogenic eating + yoga. Ha. Haha. Ha. The yoga thing is going at least! Holy yoga Monday's after school have been great.

9. Continue with my prayer & praise planner. I've done a few more pages in my Illustrated Faith planner and I can't wait to see it fill up!


Now to move on to this month! Only two to go until 2017, how crazy?!

1. Celebrate Hannah in Las Vegas! This weekend I'm off to Nevada for the wedding of one of my best friends from college. Hannah, Claire and I, The Three Musketeers, have not all been together since graduation, so to say I'm excited would be an understatement!

2. Participate in NaNoWriMo. I'm crazy. I'm definitely crazy. But I want to get some of this book out on paper, or at least into Microsoft Word. It's National Novel Writing Month and I've signed up to attempt (key word attempt) 50,000 words in a month. I can chug out 2,000 - 3,000 in one sitting, but daily? We shall see. I'll keep you posted.

3. Get my 2017 PowerSheets! Launch day is TODAY! I have lived by the PowerSheets for 3 years and I cannot recommend them enough! Pick up your set HERE!

4. Host my sister's Bachelorette Party. The wedding is a month and a half away and the party's still going! Her bachelorette invites are out and I can't wait to share where we go and what we do!

5. Finish decorating for Christmas. I definitely put up my Christmas tree last weekend, but now I have to get the rest of it up when I get back from my trip.

6. Finish 5+ books. Hopefully my flights this week will help me conquer a few. Up next: A Court of Thorns and Roses, Circling the Sun, Love Your Life, For the Right Reasons, and Present Over Perfect.

7. Yoga at least once a week. Mondays are about to become non-negotiable. I need the stress relief and some accountability.

8. Finish the wedding prep. I have bouquets to make, boutionerres to finish, and a few more projects to tidy up before my sister walks down the aisle in December. Time will get away from us asap!


November, here we go. Let's do this.
What are YOU going to make happen this month?
