Hello September!

It's officially the second day of September now! I just love the start of the Fall season! To me- Fall is everything. The weather, the smells, the football, the clothes. I love everything about it. 

For those that follow my blog, know that I post goals each month. They are mostly small, random goals that keep me on track for the month. I have to say that I've always had an ongoing to-do list and setting monthly goals has just helped motivate me to accomplish them. I love the feeling of crossing each item off the list. Call me crazy. :) 

So, let's take a look at my August goals.. I didn't do too shabby considering many of my August goals revolved around getting Sophia to Kindergarten. Back to school haircut- check. School supplies/clothes shopping- check. Along with that, I sorted out hand me downs for Saidey and they are waiting to fill up her dresser. I completed my 29 things for 29 years birthday post, you can read all about that here.

I found a few options for a family planner but am going to wait to purchase until closer to the new year. Here are some of the options I found:

They're both pretty expensive, but I always buy a planner to fill out and then to find it sitting on the counter unused. So maybe these will actually be useful.

The one goal I did not accomplish- read at least one book. Actually, maybe I can squeeze that one by because I STARTED a new book.. does that count? No? Ok.. fine. So, that one remains on the list for September. :) I am bound and determined to finish one book a month, so here I go!

So, moving on to my September goals..

Ok guys, I know you can't read my September goals... It's all in the plan- that way I can say I did but don't. Juuust kidding.. I can't get it to come any clearer.. sorry about that!! 

1) Read at least one book in its entirety
2) Make an eye appointment
3) Order books for Sophia's Scholastic book order
4) Start brainstorming Halloween costume ideas
5) Find a new pair of boots

And that's it! 

I hope you all have a great start to the new month! Here's to pumpkin spice lattes, crisp Fall weather, falling leaves, apple and pumpkin pie and jeans and sweatshirts!
