We aren't even going to go into what I did and did not accomplish in the month of October because trust me, as far as REAL goals went? It wasn't pretty. I really did start out strong...and then all the weddings and never ending edits fell into my lap...and running took a sad fall on the back burner.
What's exciting about the fact that its a new month, though? Well, just that! If you're anything like me, I feel like daily lists are a must. I mean, I probably make 17 post-its at work a day...due to all the random things I'm making lists about (that day's to-do list, potential meal ideas, blog post ideas, brides to be booked, presents for the entire family, outfits to wear, groceries to buy, its never ending...really)! So I want to make sure I write down my goals...even if I don't know that they'll all get accomplished!
-Make and order our wedding photo book. Guys, this still hasn't happened. It was part of our WEDDING PACKAGE that we've already paid for... a photo book... and we still haven't picked any photos out for it. Come on!!!! I'd also like to make our honeymoon photo book, but in all honesty? I know that won't get done before 2014 is over.
-Get my NYE dress altered. I'm a bridesmaid in my college roomies wedding on New Years Eve and I couldn't be more excited...although, it would help if the dress wasn't 1 or 2 sizes too big, so time to take that sucker into the alterations experts!!
-Sign up for my second half marathon. Caleb keeps tempting me to sign up for a FULL with him...then I remember, no, I'm not THAT crazy. So we'll both probably stick to the half that we ran last year... I am getting really excited. Last year, I was NOT prepared. Guys, I had only ever run 5 miles at that point. I was nowhere near prepared for 13.1 miles!!! Somehow, I did it... and I almost got there on my hands and knees, but somehow I finished. I plan to CRUSH my time from last year and PR like nobody's business. ;)
Rent a scary movie. I know, this seems silly to have on my "goals" list...but I haven't watched a good thriller in a while, and Halloween JUST happened. Caleb and I always try to stay awake long enough for a movie after each wedding we shoot - its sort of a tradition - so I'm hoping we can squeeze one in over the next couple weekends.
Do a random act of kindness. Of course, this is the season of giving, isn't it?
RUN. I'm not going to set a mile list, but I'd really like to just be consistently running 3 miles/day as much as possible. I need to start training for the half that I still need to sign up for! ;)
I know its not a TON of goals...but I'm hoping to keep it realistic. Anything exciting on your list-of-life this month?!?
