Alright, so let’s get to how well I did with my January goals.
And just so we are completely honest with each other, I made these goals about Jan 15.
I had already been working on some things so I just decided to give myself to the end of the month to complete them.
Paint Caroline’s Room – Check!- My wonderful husband painted her ceiling and her walls since I wanted to give her room an update since she’s almost five and it’s looked the same way since she was born. Since I’m not sure if our room arrangements will be the same next year I wanted a neutral color. I really wanted to paint the room all white but chickened out once I got to Sherwin Williams. I decided to go with Repose Gray at 75% (it’s 25% lighter than the color). Now that it’s painted, I really like the color and am glad I went with it.
Record Exercise – check! I’ll share more on that late in the week as well as a printable to go along with it.
Date Night with Hubby – fail! – Nope, but my sister is coming in town this month so we are going to take advantage of her being there – thanks Kelly!
Sew Christmas Tree Skirt - check! – Believe it or not I completed this task and probably written the first Christmas post of the year. I won’t be sharing it to the fall but I’m really excited about it since I started making it with the kids two years ago.
Go to bed at decent time – check!
Add 1 new product to etsy shop – fail!
Finish Christmas thank you cards with kids - fail! But we are getting there, only a few more to go!
Finish and hang family word art - fail! Project is complete now though.
Try 2 new recipes – check! – Look out world I went crazy and tried 3 new recipes.
We ate this Slow Cooker Lasagna the other night – probably won’t make it again since I thought it was just okay but if I do I will use sausage instead of ground beef. My 8 year old really liked this meal (I doubled the sauce and cheese amounts).
Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins – I made these before school one day and to say the kids were shocked is an understatement – what, no cereal this morning? I didn’t make the icing for them and just served them hot out of the oven which my kids enjoyed. I will make these again since I’m so happy they didn’t come from a box.
Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe – We had this at a friends house one night and we loved it. I made this recipe the next week and again we all loved this. We had it with some coleslaw and fruit and we will definitely make this again. Once the meat was finished cooking we mixed it with some BBQ to make it extra yummy.
If you see this packet in the grocery store, pick it up since you’ll need one to make the recipe:
Write More – check! Although I didn’t write as much as I would have liked, I did write more than usual so that’s a win for me. Next month I need to be better about just sitting and journaling at a specific time.
Any progress on your goals, resolutions, and lists?
