How are we a third of the way through December already? Time is flying by... I can hardly believe it. It feels like I've been working a lot but we've been having some fun too! I hosted Craft Day last weekend which was really fun and relaxing. I finally got my office organized! Got to spend a day babysitting Jenn's cute baby. Had a mini-celebration with Joe's coworkers in Ballard last week. I've been drinking all my favorite seasonal teas. And of course enjoying our fireplace and the Christmas lights strewn all over the living room! And bonus, I've already made some progress on my monthly goals.
December and the holidays tend to be pretty busy, so I wanted to keep my goals pretty simple this month. Really get down to what I wanted to focus on. The first is to Make Handmade. The holidays are so commercialized now and it's so easy to get caught up with buying more and more stuff. So I'm attempting to make more things by hand this winter. It's so much more gratifying to make something yourself as opposed to buying it!
The second is to Get Ad-swaps Set Up, we're always thinking of what's next for the blog, and that's my realistic goal for this month. Sarah and I had a chance to get together when I was visiting Spokane and chat about the blog and get some work done! We're excited to collaborate with other young bloggers and see where it takes us!
The third focus is to start Making Meal Plans again. The idea is to buy more veggies and plan meals at home to save some cash (and be more healthy). To keep from feeling too restricted and bored, we want to pick at least one place a month that we really want to go to, instead of just frittering our money away on "convenience food" that isn't very memorable. I'm pretty excited about this one!
My fourth goal is pretty simple - Drink More Water!
And number five is pretty simple too. Print Pictures. I got the printer working last month, and I have my computer back. So the name of the game is backup, backup, backup ...and print. There's not much point in having a bunch of pictures just sitting in a hard-drive collecting virtual dust.
So that's what's on my list! What are you guys up to this month?
