January Goals

 A new year means a new planner and a fresh start for me.  So many possibilities and so much excitement for a new year.  Last year I started writing out monthly goals and it really worked well for me.  I got lots of things done and it was nice to have several weeks to work on my list.  It was also good to start fresh each month and not have a to do list that lingered on all year.

January 2015 goals

1. Rearrange our downstairs which involves moving a sofa and our dining table and I'll need my hubby to help me.  I think the change will be really nice.
2. Plant the tulip bulbs that have been sitting in my fridge (as per the gardeners directions)
3. Read for fun - pick up a book instead of scrolling my insta feed for the million time or searching through pinterest for another new recipe to try.  I have a stack of new books that I'm anxious to get to this year.
4. Reorganize my holiday closet so that the Christmas is in the back and the other holidays are more accessible in the front.
5. Try out a few new story times to go to until we find one we really like nearby.
6. Make some phone calls that I've been putting off because I know I'll be on hold forever and Olive will need to be quiet while I try to have a coherent conversation.
7. Reorganize my kitchen cabinets - removing things I don't use and making room for a few new appliances.
8. Make some fun Valentine garlands
9. Make Olive homemade playdough
10. Head to Lowe's to return, buy a stove light bulb and an over sized light bulb.  This is out of my element so I've been putting it off
11. Get an oil change for my car
12. Be on the hunt for a circle ottoman and don't settle until I find the perfect one

Happy New Year!!
What things are you going to be working on this month?

Linking up with Momfessionals and The Tiny Twig


  1. Looks like you have a busy January ahead of you! I just love the feeling of a new beginning. Yesterday I bought a new notebook to start writing down all my new goals. I'm such a dork and I love it!

  2. This is great! Would love for you to grab our button and join our new weekly "Tuesday Talk" link-party that just went live!

  3. I like the idea of monthly goals vs goals for the year. I procrastinate, so focusing on smaller goals for a month gets me to do them better than having the whole year. Definitely agree with the books and story time group. I've been wanting to get out and visit various ones. Actually, my goal is to just start doing more of those activities in general....
