B+ Goals

I can’t believe we’re almost half way through the year! Usually I think time passes so slow. But lately it feels like it’s zooming by.

I feel good about April. It was a full month. I tend to like my life pretty full, and this month was just about perfect as far as “fullness” goes. I like a lot of stuff going on.

Be sure to check out Elizabeth and her goals for the month, too. And there’s a link up! Link up, so I can go check out your blog, and we can cheer each other on.

To recap, here’s how I did with my April B+ goals:

+Complete at least one interview for my book: COMPLETE

And it was such an eye-opening interview! One of my favorite so far. I still need to transcribe it, but the hard part of scheduling it and doing it is complete. I think I need 2-3 more interviews. Then I think I’ll be done with that portion.

+Get dressed: COMPLETE

It feels so funny to say I “completed” getting dressed. But can I get an “amen” about how hard it can be to get dressed?! I feel like I’ve perfected my “young mom, semi-SAHM, semi-part-time-working-mom” uniform. I was hesitant to share my outfits because 1) I’m not a model (and there’s ALWAYS at least one kid in the background of all my photos) and 2) I don’t think my outfits are all that exciting. But! The response has been so fun! I’d love to write more posts about clothes. Clothes are my favorite. You can see all the pictures on my Instagram account.

+Find a new go-to healthy side dish: COMPLETE

Thank you all so much for your suggestions! We’ve done roasted carrots and roasted broccoli. The roasted broccoli is our favorite! I chop up the broccoli into florets and toss in olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Everyone loves this!

+Find the perfect coffee/tea travel mug: COMPLETE (at least for now!)

Does anyone else find that metal mugs make the coffee taste bad?! I just cannot drink out of metal. Cannot. But metal does keep beverages warm. So, I found a travel mug that’s metal on the outside and ceramic on the inside, the Bubba Brands Hero Elite Stainless Steal Tumbler. Ta da! No more bad tasting coffee. So far, so good. I’ll let you know if it starts to taste bad.

+Finish podcast listener survey: INCOMPLETE

Whoops! I forgot about this one. I’ll try again next month! The downloads for both shows continue to rise, so I’m eager to see what people like and what they want more of.

Here’s what I’ve got on tap for May:

+Plant garden

We have one raised bed ready to go, so I need my dear husband to build the other bed, you know, on top of all the other 1,684 projects he’s working on. Each year we learn more about gardening, and we’ve learned we need a dedicated bed for the tomatoes because they go CRAZY.

+Hang canvas prints

We ordered them. They came. And they’re sitting on the floor in Dan’s office. They turned out beautiful, so I can’t wait to get them on the wall. Hey, look, another Dan project. I should title this post: Sarah’s Goals for Dan. HA! Well, I’m the project manager. That definitely counts for something.

+Keep my van clean.

You all. Trash in my van is the WORST. I have these nice back of the seat organizers, which do help keep snacks, wipes, etc… in their place. But I’m finding my van has become a storage unit. Not cool.

+Try, try again for the podcast listener survey.

Third times a charm?

+Schedule another interview for my book.

I had a great one in April, so I’m hoping I can schedule another good one in May.

So how did April go? What do you have on tap for May?

    Great goals girl!!! Now, maybe I missed it, but tell me about the book… What kind of interviews are you doing?!?!

  • What a great list of goals, especially for a garden! Have you tried growing cucumbers? You can teach them to climb up a trellis so they don’t take up much space and they are ABUNDENT.
