Goodness gracious, is it just me or did September fly by? I don’t know about you but I both equally love and hate October. I love it for all of the obvious reasons: fall weather, pumpkin all the things, fallen leaves, Halloween, jeans and hoodies…oh the list could go on. But I hate it because October always makes the end of the year seem SOOO close and my type A mind focuses on all the To-Do’s that need to get done before we welcome in the New Year. And with that in mind…
In regards to good ol’ September, well I mostly failed. Truth be told this month was one of the fastest of the year and if you couldn’t tell by my lack of posts, I was super busy and this month was over before I knew it.
So let’s review September:
1. Complete a new bill pay system/organizational method. My desk is a mad house right now of bills to be filed, opened, organized. It is a hot mess that is really irritating me these days
I did clean the clutter from my desk and file away the stacks of papers. I even started on the new budget and am really liking how it is looking thanks to a new (to me at least) system I stumbled across at Michael’s. The system is the Recollections Planner Collection and I will be sharing more on my thoughts on the product soon.
2. Craft show prep: more on this later but I have been invited to my very first craft show. Eeee I am super excited but slowly realizing that unless I want to look like a schlub I need to get some things figured out.
I have been busting my booty sewing for my craft show and in fact I am completely crazy and actually will be doing one this month! O.M.G. I am so excited and nervous. I am totally geeking out on all things craft related. [If you haven’t already you should follow my new shop based instagram @knot_to_nest.]
3. Get back on that healthy lifestyle bandwagon! In August I not only fell from the wagon but rolled down a dirty ravine and hit my head on a rock and trust me I can tell. Time to get to workin’ on my fitness!
I am running my 6th half marathon this weekend and I am really pretty excited. I have no true goals other than finishing but I am excited to be on a new course and for 2 hours of uninterrupted time where I can let my mind wander. Of course I still am not on the exercise schedule I was in the summer but I am going to get there.
4. Finish our forever long kitchen remodel. Shoot me now! I swore it would only take a few weeks. Yeah I totally started with this in, oh, May I believe. Time to get my butt in gear already!!
Uh yea, totally dropped the ball on this one. Our kitchen looks horrible right now. Eh, can’t win em all.
