That’s right, it’s time for some good old-fashioned monthly goals! It’s been a while since I posted one of these goal lists, so lets see if I can cross everything off this month. Here’s what I’m hoping to achieve in the month of October –
– Work as much overtime as possible
– Work on the garden to make it “summer BBQ” friendly
– Participate in the Spookathon
– Watch the movies on my Halloween ‘to-watch’ list
– Go to Adelaide for a mini holiday
– Make a summer-y music playlist to listen to while driving
– Cook something from the Donna Hay ‘seasons’ cookbook
Quite a lot of these goals are on my Spring/Summer bucket list for the year, so if I can cross them off it’ll be two birds with one stone… Wish me luck!
Soooooooooooooo….. it’s July, which is mildly terrifying. Can we officially start counting down the days until Christmas yet? YOU BET WE CAN! (116) There are a lot of things I want to try and get done this month, I have two weeks off work towards the end of July and we’re going on a little holiday. I’m really looking forward to it and I’m especially looking forward to a little bit of time off work as it’s been rather hectic lately. Here are some of the things I want to try and tick off my to-do list in July –
– Go on a Ghost Tour with Sebastian
– Refinance our mortgage
– Do my tax return
– Make Chrissy Teigen’s Chinese Chicken Salad
– Update my resume
– Re-plant the herb garden in the back yard
– Organize our trip to Adelaide/Melbourne
– Plan some fun things for Sebastian’s birthday
– Start up the #goldstarchallenge again
Do you have any goals for this month? I’d love to hear about them, so be sure to let me know in the comments below!
My friends and I get together every few months as a group for something we call ‘Pot Luck Dinner Club’. One couple (or pair of friends) hosts the dinner, and they get to pick the theme of the food that everyone is to bring. We’ve also started dressing up to suit the theme, which has made things a lot more interesting. This month’s Pot Luck Dinner Club was “Medieval”. Everyone’s costumes were amazing, and hosts Lauren and Joel went above and beyond with decorating for the theme. Lauren researched and printed out everyone’s family crest to hang on the wall, and Joel built some wooden shackles (which ended up being the cause of many laughs throughout the evening).
The food was just as excellent – roast pork, beef stew, homemade loaves of bread (passed around and torn apart at the table), meat and cheese platters, roast pumpkin and brussel sprouts, with poached pears and an apple and rhubarb pie for dessert. So that’s one of my goals crossed off for the month! And it looks like we’ll be hosting the next dinner party, so you’ll probably see something similar pop up in my monthly goals in July. Any ideas for a theme?
