December Goals

Most people can't believe it is December. I, personally, am so glad December is FINALLY here! I love Christmas, I love this time of year! Every day a new neighbor puts up Christmas lights, is it SO EXCITING! I would drive up and down the street all night oohing and awwing, sipping hot chocolate and eating Christmas cookies if that wasn't a giant waste of gas. And, no I will not be walking up and down the street it's cold out there. 

Let's get down to it! December Goals! 

Recap on November Goals:
  1. Read 100% of my Blogging for Books book! If I finish that - start Interrupted again. Well I am 1 for 2 on this one. I haven't cracked open my Blogging for Books book. I started reading Interruppted again but I don't really agree with what I am reading so far so it is kinda making me mad. I did, however, start reading Blog, Inc and bought another Amish fiction book. I am going in the wrong direction!
  2. Yoga 3x/week again  I am back in my yoga ways and it feels great
  3. Not only blog 3-5 times a week but good content - come up with a game plan for December yes and no. I am proud of everything I have put out so far (mainly The Fruit of The Spirit Series) but I don't have a game plan for the rest of December.
  4. Find at least 2 guest post idea for December and contact people to do them Right after I made these goals I came up with my Fruit Series. So, I nailed that one!
  5. Get Philip a great birthday gift I really was on fire this month.I got him a book he asked for, a board game he wanted, and a shower speaker so he can rock out while showering
  6. Make a meal planning schedule and meal plan for 2 weeks And that is where it ended. I didn't even think about this one.
December Goals:
  1. Finish one of the 6 books I have going.
  2. Keep up with the She Reads Truth Advent reading plan
  3. Finish Christmas gift shopping and wrap presents
  4. Launch Yoga page
  5. Plan trip to Germany when Vanessa my sweet German cousin/little sister comes to visit
  6. See a Christmas play
  7. Research Pastor/Ministry Wife Series 
  8. Be a better wife
A bit ambitious maybe but I believe in myself. and Maybe I can be able to ride a bike!
What are your goals for December? Did you have a productive November? ARE YOU PUMPED FOR CHRISTMAS!?!?!

  22. Be a better wife - that's a great one! So much easier said than done sometimes, huh? I loved Blog, Inc. a lot! Make sure you have a notebook handy! Also, sad that you're not liking Interrupted so far. It's on my to-read list.
