January Goals

Another months is upon us! Here is what I hope to accomplish this month:

1. PACK UP MY HOUSE--that's right, we will be moving around the end of this month so everything must be packed. I've started a little bit but I have SO much more to do! I saved all of the boxes that my Christmas gifts that I ordered came in as well as all of the discarded wrapping and tissue paper so I have some supplies. I'm going to try to pack something every single night so it doesn't get too overwhelming.

2. Exercise--this is part of my over all New Year's resolutions but that means it starts this month. Now that I'm back to my regular work schedule it should be easy to plug my work outs right into my day. I hope to run on Monday and Wednesdays, do pilates on Thursdays, and then get in an outdoor run or walk either on Saturday or Sunday.

3. Pick out my colors!!
I have yet to pick a single color for my new house and I have got to get a move on. I want to paint before we move in the furniture and that is NOT that far away! Any suggestions? I don't know where to even start! I also need to pick out granite at least for the basement kitchen and start shopping for furniture. This is really going to be a busy month!

4. Plan Laura's shower
I am so excited to be heading up my friend Laura's baby shower! I've been thinking about it ever since I found out she was pregnant which was MONTHS ago and now it's finally time to put those plans into action! I actually have a pinterest board dedicated to it and you can check it out HERE. I'm doing a pink pram theme--does anyone have any suggestions? It's not until the end of February but that really doesn't give me much time!

5. Prepare the taxes
Ugh what a boring task, but it has to be done. I keep all of the tax stuff in a folder during the year and I usually just have to sort it and total everything for the accountant. That is, I have to do that once I get the instruction packet from the accountant, which sometimes I forget to do. I need to get the packet THIS WEEK so I have everything finished by the end of the month. Hopefully....
What are your goals for this month???

  1. What colors do you and the hubby gravitate towards in your wardrobe? I would lean towards those if I were you. I would do soothing colors (pale blues, purples, black, white, etc...) in your bedroom. I tried red once, don't do it. And then do warm colors in your kitchen. You could also do neutrals all over, and then throw in your colors with the furniture and decor. (Hehe sorry, I love interior decorating and all that type of stuff!)

  2. Ugh Taxes suck!!! I feel like we just did them.

  3. oooh can't wait to see how you decorate your new house - so fun! though packing is the worst ugh. good luck!

  4. I was just thinking about you today and wondering if your house sold or not! I'm so happy for you, I know you've been house hunting a while! I want to hear all about it!

  5. Good luck packing!! I thoroughly hate moving and am glad we're staying put for 4 years!!! Probably the longest we'll be anywhere for the next 15 years :/


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them and they always make me smile!
