Goals for the month of October


Goals for October

October is full of changes for me and I can’t wait to dive right into my favorite month! Here are my goals for this month:


Finish updating old blog posts When I made the big switch from Blogger to WordPress the blog posts didn’t transfer the way I wanted to. I have been slowly updating each post, I’m hoping to finish tackling this big project!

Post more on Instagram- I am lucky enough to have a pretty fun schedule these days and I always forget to share and write about them!

5 blog posts a week There are days that I just completely forget to hit publish or schedule the posts but I’m trying to get better about my content calendar and Hootsuite! 


More frequent date nights I am a lame woman who falls asleep by 9 pm on Saturday night. I need to get better about enjoying a night out once in a while. 

Help Dino Boy with more household tasks With life quieting down for me I need to help Dino Boy around the house way more than I do now. Ladies, he cooks and cleans…..How did I get so lucky?

What are some goals you have for the month of October?

Thirsty Thursday: Apple Cider Mimosa

I am so excited for it to be October! I have been itching to share these fabulous fall cocktails for what seems like forever! Now that the weather has cooled down, I just want to cuddle up with some Netflix, blankets and a delicious treat that is sure to warm you up! This week’s Thirsty Thursday cocktail is so simple yet I never would have thought to switch up my basic mimosa. Since it’s fall why not try an apple cider mimosa!

Shows premiering in September

Fall is my favorite time of year. I’ll pass on the pumpkin spice lattes and get excited for fall tv! There is nothing better than cooking a hearty meal and then cuddling up on the couch with Dino Boy and watching our favorites! These shows are all premiering this month! What show are you excited for?

On this beautiful Thanksgiving day I took time early this morning to sit and reflect on just how blessed I am. I have fantastic people in my life, a job I love and a cozy place to call home. I am one lucky girl and I never want to forget that. It’s easy to take these things for granted, to never think twice about what a great life you have but I’m glad it’s days like today that I’m able to sit and reflect and truly appreciate everything around me, and for that I’m thankful!
What are you thankful for this year?

Last week I attended Junior League’s Artful Living Home Show and I have to say I left completely inspired! It’s always interesting to see other people’s styles in their home. Decorating my home is a great stress reliever and I can’t wait to start prepping it for the holidays. One of the most interesting parts to the show was a wood inspired tabletop.
