Before we get to my November Goals (and my recap about October), I am beyond thrilled that today is Halloween!!
It's Friday, it's Halloween...really, it just doesn't get much better! Kensington is so excited to head off to school today, Smith and I have some fun things to do until she gets home and then tonight, we will trick or treat until our feet give out (and then we'll eat a lot of candy!). Happy Halloween to YOU!
These were my October Goals...I really can't believe how quickly this month flew by! This time of year just moves FAST for me! October was a little unexpected...I went in for my annual skin check and then almost 5 weeks later, I'm still with stitches and recovering (I feel fine now but I'm just limited in my activity due to the number of stitches, length of incision and area which it's located). I'm extremely thankful that I went for my annual exam and that my dermatologist was as proactive as she was...skin cancer and such is no joke friends!
1. Read 2 (or more) books
I actually read 5 books this month (thank you long carpool line and extra downtime due to minor procedure on back). I recapped them all here.
2. Walk more
Hallelujah! We finally have cooler weather here in North Texas! Kensington and I have been walking to and from school at least 3 days a week and it's glorious! I enjoy the weather, stretching my legs before beginning my day, and most importantly, I enjoy the time with her.
3. Enjoy pumpkin everything
If it's pumpkin, I've eaten it. All of it. Twice.
4. Finish up my Christmas shopping
Well, I'm not done but I'm really close! I just need to grab a few more things for a few more people. I'm storing this stuff in the most random spots (and keeping a list so that I don't forget!). Next up, wrapping it all...
5. Volunteer at Kensington's school once a week
I was able to do this three times this month and loved it every time. I'm really enjoying getting to know the office staff and teachers. I'm going to have kiddos at this school for the next decade, so I need to help out often! I'm hoping to keep volunteering weekly for the rest of the year.
6. Finish Ashby's room
We are just about ready for our girl to come home! Her room is ready, her closet is getting full and our hearts are about to explode with love...we just can't wait!
On to November...
Well, we'll see how this shakes out, right? I love getting a jump start on all of this Christmas stuff in November, so that I'm not stressed in December. As for the more sleep stuff (you guys know I don't sleep much!), I need to sleep a bit more...you know, have my energy up for the holidays!
Happy Halloween friends! May your day be filled with lots of love, laughter, silliness, tricks, treats and delights!
