September goals and goods.

ITS FRIDAY! This makes me really happy seeing as half of the day yesterday I thought it already WAS Friday, ha! August was definitely busy, but now that its over? I'm READY for Fall. I'm ready for football, crisp leaves, and bonfires. Since this week was pretty low key I'm not doing much of a recap, but instead, some goals I want to accomplish!

Kickoff Bengals football season! I'm SO ready for Sunday get togethers with my favorites and cheering on our favorite team!!!

Have another successful month full of photography. We have 3 weddings, and 2 engagement sessions, plus quite a few scheduled consults already. I want to stretch my creativity more than ever, and can't wait for the leaves to start changing!!

Bake something!! Lisa never fails me when it comes to pumpkin goodies, so I'm going to attempt making these this month!

Spend more time doing things I love. With the craziness that comes with the Fall wedding season, its kind of hard to make time for other things that are also important to me (Bible reading, date nights, journaling, me time). So this month I'm going to do my best to make more time. Wake up a little earlier to read, take a couple extra days to edit so I can date my husband, etc. Excited to see how this goes!

Move into our new home. I'm obviously not talking specific details on here, but one thing I can tell you? We're extremely excited to have a fresh start somewhere else. Of course we'll miss our apartment...this has been our only home since we've been married, and it will always hold a special place in our hearts for that reason. However! We think this move will be a huge blessing for us, and we're excited to make new memories in our new place! Maybe I'll share some details on decorating to come once we're settled?!!

Make more time for the gym. I did really well the first half of August, but the last 2 weeks have been really busy/stressful so the gym didn't make it on my daily agenda very much. In September, I'd really like to get back in the weight room and make some serious progress!

All in all, I'm ready for a new month!! If you follow me on twitter, you probably saw how excited I am about my most recent purchase!! I finally hopped on the Erin Condren train and I'm insanely sad that I can't use this beauty until 2016! I'm really regretting not adding the rest of the 2015 months in!

I hope everyone is able to enjoy this long, awesome weekend!!

  1. I need to get some goals for the month down on paper! I didn't do so well with my August goals so I really want to turn things around this month. I think I'm going to add bake something to my goals list too! I haven't baked in a while and it's something I love. Better yet I think I'm going to make my goal to try a new recipe. Best of luck with all of your goals!

  2. So fun! I'm anxious to hear what you think about your EC planner. I had one a few years ago, but it ended up being too bulky for me :( These are all such great goals. I LOVE baking a lot once Fall comes :) Give me pumpkin everything!

  14. These are fabulous goals! Unfortunately for us, it's still pretty dang warm down here through September. October is when we start to feel the cooler nights.
