Like holy heck today is September 30th?! Not only did my favorite month of the year fly by, but so has EJ’s life because today he is 6 months old! If I could stop today in it’s tracks I would. But alas the days will continue to pass and I’ll find myself on October 31st saying this same thing, I’m sure.
I am really enjoying setting monthly goals for myself. It’s keeping me accountable to getting things done (for the most part), and it’s nice to look back and see what I’ve accomplished throughout the month. Because Lord knows sometimes we get so busy that we forget how much we’ve actually gotten done.
Here’s a recap of September’s goals.
Finish our remodel // Fail. Really this isn’t our fault. The damn bankruptcy of Hanjin stranded our doors on a cargo ship so our contractor had to get the doors from a different distributor, which delayed most everything. So far the new hardwood floors are in, the windows are trimmed out and a bit of baseboards are installed.
I’m really hoping that a lot will happen next week because we’re throwing a party next weekend and a toilet is kind of a necessity in our only downstairs bathroom.
Plan A’s birthday party // Success! The party is next weekend and while I’m not quite ready, it’s planned. We’re going with her requested mermaid theme, so stay tuned for a party recap post in the next few weeks.
Get into a good fall routine // We have our routine down, but I do not have any more time for myself. I feel like while Little A is at school EJ needs a lot of attention. We haven’t figured out a consistent nap schedule for him with this new schedule yet either. His second nap usually happens right when we need to pick A up from school, so he ends up napping in the car for like 20 minutes. Hoping to get his nap time figured out soon.
Update old posts // I updated 1 or 2 posts in September! I have new photos for another one to update next week.
Try 2 new recipes // Failure. Instead of trying 2 new recipes I made 2 really old recipes. I would like to say I’ll try again in October but our month is so insane I know it won’t happen. But I’m okay breaking out some oldies but goodies.
Now for the whirlwind month that will be October.
Have a great time in Disneyland // We are going to Disneyland! I’m so excited for this trip. I pestered the hubs about Disney for a good 6 months and he finally said yes! He’s never been to Disneyland either so I’m really hoping he’ll enjoy it as well.
Celebrate Little A’s birthday // I cannot believe my girl is going to be 5 years old! Her birthday is next weekend so we’ll celebrate with her mermaid party on Saturday, then wherever she wants to go for lunch or dinner on Sunday.
Schedule out the rest of our year // The hubs has a lot of travel coming up for the remainder of the year so our schedule is going to be a bit crazy. I want to make sure we have a good plan for when he’s home so that things don’t fall through the cracks.
De-clutter // I want to do another round of de-cluttering. Even though we simplified our lives earlier this year and got rid of half our stuff, I still feel like there is more we could get rid of. I’ve put a few things up for sale already, and want to take a good hard look at what we need and don’t need.
Apply to work with 2 new influencer networks // This has been on my list for a while. I have 2 specific networks I want to work with and plan on applying this month.
Enjoy time with the family // We have a lot going on in October, but most of it is fun. I want to make sure I’m taking a step back when necessary and really enjoying the time with my family.
Between Disneyland, Little A’s birthday and Halloween, October is going to be a full month for us. There are some BIG changes happening in the Huebner household soon, and I can’t wait to eventually share more! It’s going to be a wild ride the rest of the year.It
What is one goal you have for October?
Bummer about the cargo ship with your stuff! Hopefully all of it makes it to you soon.
I can’t wait to see photos of the house!
Little A is having a birthday soon?! Man that kid grows fast.
I feel like A just turned 4! I can’t believe that she’s already turning 5. I can’t wait to see the Mermaid party pics. That’s going to be so cute! I think my 3 older girls are still obsessed with mermaids…they might actually think they’re real :-p
I am so excited for you all to go to Disneyland. What fun memories you’ll make! And now all I can think about is what BIG changes are happening. I don’t like waiting. Can we play the guessing game? 😉
Ah! I feel the same way you do! Time is just going by so dang fast. I’m glad you got a lot of things done, and boo for not having doors or a toilet! Yay for birthday parties and I for reals need to get into a better routine, too! Of course it’s all going to fall apart once baby is here, but oh well. Happy October!
Uggh! How terrible your Reno has been delayed. Good thing there are still options though and you’ll get your doors soon!
Your goals for October seem reasonable and I wish you well on them. I sure hope to meet more goals in Oct than I did in Sept! 🙂
I’m de-cluttering today! Actually I’m switching out spring-summer wardrobe to autumn-winter wardrobe and through it, I’m getting rid of a bunch of things.
I can’t believe has another birthday — I mean, didn’t we just celebrate?! The time is just flying by. I’m almost overwhelmed.
Disneyland?! Woohoo! I want to go sometime… it’s on the old bucket list.
Sounds like a busy month Tiffany. I have to go back and read your declutter post – I’m on that mission right now. WOW! How do we collect so much stuff?!
Thanks for sharing.
I love that most of your goals are personal! I think I’m going to do that too for October, since it’s my favorite month. You’re going to have so much fun at Disney! I can never remember which one is which – are you going to the CA one or the FL one? FL is MUCH bigger but both are a good time!
October sounds like it’s going to be so much fun– Little A’s mermaid party sounds like it’s going to be so cute, and I can only imagine how much fun you guys are going to have at Disney!
