February 2017 Goals
A new month = a new set of goals.
First, a look back at January.
January 2017 Goals:
1. Read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Check this off the list! I shared my thoughts on the book here. Overall, I thought it was a good read, especially if you enjoy reading about organizing, even though some parts were a bit much for me. Amanda at Klein dot co mentioned that the second book was a lot more informative, so I picked it up from the library and am hoping to read it soon!
2. Revisit my budget. Eh, no. I still need to, though!
3. Perfect the zoodle. Again, no. I totally bought some zucchini and had the best intentions of trying some zoodles, but when it came down to actually making them, I failed.
4. Photo organization. Another no. I have such trouble sitting there and making myself do this when I would rather be doing other things!
As you can see, January was not a stellar month for me goal wise. I could blame it on being crazy at work (which is so true!), but the reality is that I just didn't set aside the time to do it or make it a priority. Hopefully February will be better!
February 2017 Goals:
1. Budget! Repeat from last month, but this one needs to get done!
2. Make 3 'cookbook' recipes. I love cookbooks. I could have entire bookshelf full and still want more. I love to flip through them, read all the little stores behind the recipes, check out all the pictures...and more often than not, that's it. While I sometimes execute on actually making recipes that pique my interest, I often forget and go back to my tried and trues, or try out something I found online. I'd like to make 3 recipes from my beloved cookbooks this month, and even better if they are from 3 different cookbooks, because my goodness, I have a ton.
3. Clean up iPhone apps. I honestly don't use that many apps, but I do have a tendency to download things upon recommendations, only to not put them to use. There is no point in unnecessarily cluttering up my phone, so I want to take the time look through them and get rid of those that I don't actually use.
4. #14daysoflovephoto2017. My girl Sarah at Meet the Shaneyfelts told me about the #14daysoflovephoto2017 instagram challenge yesterday (you can follow me @emilyanndunham). I always found photo challenges neat, but never thought I be able to stick with it or have the pictures for it. Fourteen days seems like a good way to ease into doing a photo challenge, and I love that it's all about love - the world could definitely use a bit more of that!
Here's to us achieving whatever goals we may have for this month!
