OH MY GOSH Y’ALL I AM ACTUALLY GETTING MARRIED THIS MONTH.
Can I just be honest, though? I literally don’t feel like I’m getting married. Like… I have this ring on my finger and all of these things in my mom’s garage to put up at a wedding. People are coming in from out of town, I have a pretty dress and a hair trial tomorrow. Like the pieces are there, but it still hasn’t clicked. Is this weird? Is it normal? Okay but really, it’s so weird that I’m getting married. Actually married, like legally and for real and stuff. Haha. Moving on.
Let me just say this. After kind of sucking at August’s goals, I did pretty super fantastic at September’s.
Have 500 available listings on Poshmark
Nailed. It. One day I literally listed 46 things. The next day I made $95 in sales and STILL had over 500 listings. That felt so so so good.
- Read 2 books
Â I read one and about two separate half books. I read the book Loner because it was listed as a staff recommendation at a bookstore Justen an I went to in Bend, OR… I couldn’t put the book down but I also kind of hated it. I checked out like 5 books from the library and finished 0 of them. Definitely bit off more than I could chew with that.
Make a list of 25 things I like about myself
I blogged about it here!
Buy fresh flowers
- Read a book of the Bible
Try a new recipe
Thank you, Whole 30. I tried a BUNCH of new recipes this month, but theÂ favorite was probably this paleo chicken recipe.
Get a manicure
On September 30th. and then I put together IKEA furniture and messed it all up, lol.
Organize the pots/pans
This felt so good, y’all. We got a little pan organizer thing from Home Goods and spent all of like 10 minutes rearranging and now I don’t want to slam my head against the wall every time I go to grab something.
Make a list of what needs to get done for our wedding and finish something.
I kind of did this.
Write 5 blog posts
Did it! Yes! It didn’t feel like I actually wrote 5 posts in September, but I guess I did. That shrug emoji belongs here.
Score: 8/10 or 80%
- Try a new recipe
- Buy fresh flowers
- Read a book
- Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
- Organize the closet
- Clean the corners of the apartment
- Have 600 active listings on Poshmark
- Write 5 blog posts
- Cross something off (aside from #26 and #77) of my 101 in 1001
- Incorporate another essential oil into my daily routine
Is it weird that I kind of had a hard time making this list? I tried to keep it fairly mellow because… um I’m getting married this month. So that’s happening.
What are your goals for this month?!
At the risk of sounding like a total weirdo, I’ve been reading your blog from the very beginning (currently somewhere around mid-2013), but also keep with with your present day posts as you post them. I feel like I’m cheating by reading the end of the book (your now life) while still in the middle of the story (your 2013 life). Anyway, just wanted to say I love your writing and wish you wedding blessings!
YAYAYAYAY GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously text or call me if you need last minute help with anything! Or if you need to vent or cry or rejoice or anything else! I’m excited to see you marry your person! <3
Congrats on your upcoming wedding! Hope it’s a beautiful day you’ll want to remember forever 🙂 And definitely good to keep the goals mellow as a result!
Wow you sure did have an awesome month in September! And it seems like October is shaping up to be a memorable one too! 🙂
