Because of my little break for the past month, I haven't had the chance to post my October goals. Since October is one of my favorite months out of the whole year, I cant help but post these goals...even if they are a couple of days late :)
Now for a look back at my September goals.

Not ready for that just yet. The nursery has been a mini heaven.
7. Post my first Stitch-fix!

8. Host a dinner
9. Take photos, photos and more photos.

5. Take a road trip
6. Have a bonfire
7. Carve a pumpkin
8. Enjoy a hayride
9. Dress up for Halloween

I honestly only planned a few goals but for some reason 14 came out.
 Now I'm really feeling accountable yall.
 This month will be nothing but great. When I think of October, I think of the cool air, the fun times, the smell of pumpkins, the feeling of a  bonfire, snuggling under warm blankets, s'mores, and Hocus Pocus.
What a month of pure thankfulness.
Fall, I just love you.


  1. Awesome goals! I learned how to knit once, then never stuck with it, but I would absolutely LOVE to learn how again! I've always been intrigued by cross-stitch, as well.
    Fall is my favorite, too. And in particular, October. ♡ You've made me crave a pumpkin spice latte, somehow...

  2. Love this girl! I am so excited for all the things coming up for you this month. You can TOTALLY become a Photoshop expert :) Do you use Lightroom? I LOVE it for editing photos in batches!

  3. i love love love these goals!
    and uh...photo shoots, we can make that happen at the renew retreat!

  4. Such a great list of goals! This time of year is the best for road trips, camping and bonfires! I hope I can do all three of those before the month is over--keeping my fingers crossed!

  5. Girlfriend- you have so many goals! :) I love all your fall ones :)

  6. Love those goals! I would also love to leaner to knit and have a bonfire this month! I need to get practicing and learning photoshop too <3

  7. Good luck ticking off all your goals, I hope you get them all done by the 31st :)

  9. Great goals! Girl, post your Stitch Fix! I love those posts :)

  19. You have some really awesome goals, good luck with them. I too only set October goald 3 days ago as I was away on vacation

  20. I love all the Fall themed goals! It's a little cooler here in Florida so I might be able to have a bonfire soon. Good luck with your goals this month! You did great in September.

  21. Awesome goals! You're crossing them off left and right! :)

  22. Hope you had an awesome anniversary! Love your goals :)

  23. i love that photo! i'm with ya on hocus pocus - a girls night in is in order asap!

  24. I don't know about you but I love learning new trades from youtube. I am an avid crocheter, my grandmother taught me the simple stitches and then I found youtube is super helpful when it comes to learning new stitches. I'm sure they have tons of knitting tutorials!! Good luck with your goals!

  25. Congrats on your progress, and it looks like you have lots of good goals for this month! I should probably start doing something like this, I have lists everywhere.

  26. Goal setting is good, I need to do a better job of doing it!

  27. I love the idea of writing your goals down, such a great way to keep yourself accountable! Also you HAVE to post your Stitch Fix review! I'm obsessed with Stitch Fix and have been posting mine as well, it's so much fun to see what other bloggers get in their fixes!


  28. Love these goals! I can't wait to see your October Stitch Fix!

  29. These goals are great! I want to start making some goals for the month however seeing them I think would overwhelm me. I once taught a class on time management and they talked about setting small goals for yourself so that you don't feel overwhelmed so like my goal could be meal prep for the week and instead of using that as a goal I would say something like "go to the store for meal prep on Saturday" and then put all the little tasks after it that I need to complete in order to make sure it gets done. It kind of tricks your mind to feel like you are still accomplishing goals even if the main one doesn't get finished.

  30. Wow you do have a lot of goals in the month of October to accomplish! I would love to learn how to knit or even sew actually. Looking forward to seeing how you progressed with your goals. Good luck.\
