Goals for February

Well I suppose it's time to share some more goals now that January has come + gone, and February is already halfway over. Even though I didn't finish everything on my list, it was still a good month. Here's a little recap of what I set out to accomplish:


(✘) Spend time in prayer every morning.
(✔✘) Take my social studies + science GED tests.
(✔) Finish one book.
(✘) Go on one family outing.
(✔) Lose five pounds.
(✔) Refrain from buying anything for myself.
(✘) Finish redoing our upstairs bathroom.

February is halfway over, so I'll keep my list short and sweet for the month. The last two weeks were spent busting my butt at work, which means there wasn't much time for anything else. 

Finish another book.
I still have a handful of books that I have started reading, but have yet to finish.

Purge my closet + sell or giveaway the rejects.
It's that time of year again. I've collected too many clothing items over the past year, so it's time to weed through them. I'm bringing the ones I no longer wear down to Plato's Closet to see if I can get anything for them. The rest will go to Goodwill.

Finish gathering the final pieces for my gallery wall.
I'm really close to being done with this project (see below). I just need a few more picture frames before I can start hanging.

Do two fun outings with my family.
Since we didn't get to do anything in January, we're hoping to make up for it this month. We'd like to visit Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River to see the manatees + check out the things that they have added to Disney Springs (Downtown Disney).

Take the science portion of the GED test.
There was a lot of material that I had to relearn or refresh myself on when it came to science, which is partially the reason I didn't complete it last month. I've been plucking away at the lessons each day, and the info is starting to come back to me.

Plan a getaway with the hubby.
G + I haven't been away (just the two of us) in almost a year, so we're a little overdue for a romantic rendezvous.

UYM 14 Days of Love · Our Story

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day, guys! I know that it's been a little quiet around here over the past few weeks, but I'm just popping in to say that I'm sharing our story over at Uniquely Yours Ministries as part of their 14 Days of Love blog series! It's been so nice reading all of these awesome love stories + it was an honor to have ours featured on their blog as well.
