November || Goals

Hiii, its the 8th day of November and I'm just sitting down to write out my goals...better late than never, right?

1 || Make a darn photo book, Kayla! Yes, I'm  yelling at myself. I've had this on my list for about 4 years now. I want to make a 2013 book, a 2014 one, a 2015 one, a honeymoon book, a wedding day book, etc.! The list really never ends, so I'd like to knock ONE out this month! After this weekend, we have about a month of free time before our last wedding in December, so I think its realistic!

2 || Get ahead on our Christmas shopping. I'd say we're about halfway done right now, and have been for a few months (we legit started shopping in January), but I really want to knock it out and be done before mid-December!

3 || Have another ladies night! I'm seeing my BFF this weekend and we planned a fun night including a sleepover! I can't wait. She even borrowed a projector and we're watching chick flicks on a WALL. I'm a little too excited. There may or may not be marshmallow fluff involved, too.

4 || Make some new meals. I've actually already made 2 new meals and both were a hit in our household! I love that right now that I can make the full recipe and there are still leftovers for lunch the next day - which not only is awesome, but saves money, too!

5 || Get back to our active lifestyles. Enough said. I'm excited to be working out more than I had over the summer. I think wedding season got the best of me and any free time I had was going to be spent on the couch. My waistline misses my old jeans! Caleb and I went on a long walk in the dark after dinner last night and had a blast. It also gives us time to unplug and connect with each other.

6 || Finish a book. I seriously LOVE to read, and its sad that I never make time for it. Photography is my #1 passion, but there are so many other things I love to do, like read! I have about 300 books on my list and now its just up to me to decide which one I reach for first!

7 || Finalize our logo and get the site ready for launch! Seriously friends, my SIL Erin has outdone herself, and I can't wait to show you what she's been working on for this new business Caleb and I are starting!

What are you trying to accomplish this month?!


  1. YES to ladies nights and early Christmas shopping. Every year we say we're going to, and we usually slack off until mid-late November. I'm happy to say we started in August this year with some small stuff, but it's such a relief :-D

  2. I feel ya on #1. Creating a photo book for yourself is HARD! It was my goal to create a photo album for just Leah by her first birthday - and here I am now (shes 17months old) and I haven't put together one page of the album. Just organizing the pictures on your computer so you know which ones to order or upload is hard....haha. So, I feel ya - but I know you can do it! Start with making your wedding one - that one you will cherish the most!! xoxo!

  3. The first one made me laugh because that's how I talk to myself too lol. Good luck on all of your goals!

  4. I think you'll rock all of your goals girl - I really like getting a jump start on your christmas shopping - I need to do the same! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I am feeling ALL of these goals! Especially the photo books. I've been wanting to make those for forever and haven't gotten around to it

  6. We still haven't made a photo book of our wedding pictures either! And I definitely want to make one for our honeymoon and first year of marriage!! Who are you using for your photo book? There are so many to choose from, but a lot of them are crazy expensive!! Woo hoo for some new meals! I am definitely loving your meal snaps!!!! You are inspiring me to branch out and to try some new recipes!!!! YAY YAY for your new website and logo!!!!! I know Erin is totally going to rock those for you and I can't wait to see them both- so exciting!!!!!! :)

  7. You make that photobook right now girlfriend!!! ;) Thanks for entrusting me with your new business logo!! Can't wait to see it all live.

  8. Are you going to be doing family photos? Or strictly weddings? Asking for a friend ;)


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
