Starbucks App – I recently discovered the Starbucks app and i love it! I’m able to order my coffee and just walk into the store (or go to the drive thru) and pick up my order. It’s fast and super easy!

Seattle’s Best Coffee House Blend – When i’m not going to Starbucks i love drinking the House Blend coffee from Seattle’s Best Coffee. If you like something not too strong, with a smooth flavor, you would love this coffee.

Goals For April 2019

Hi Guys!

Every month this year, i am making goals for that month and sharing them with you all. Today i’m going to be sharing my goals for April…

april 2019 goals

  1. Lose 7 pounds – I failed last month to lose any weight, in fact i gained weight, so i’m really going to hit it hard this month.
  2. Read 4 books – I’m doing pretty good hitting all my book reading goals and i want to continue doing well, so i’m setting a smaller goal this month.
  3. Get 10,000 steps every day – I’m lowering it down this month, only to take some pressure off of myself. I’m starting to feel myself getting burnt out from big goals.
  4. De-clutter my closet – My closet is in desperate need of attention. My goal this month is to get it cleaned out and organized.

That’s it, those are my goals for the month. I’d love to hear your goals.

Goals For March 2019 *Update*

Hi Guys!

Last month i shared my goals for March, and today i’m going to tell you how i did with my March goals…

march goals 2019 update

  1. Lose 5 pounds – This is the same number i had last month, and i think it’s doable again for March. I failed this goal big time! I actually gained 1 pound! 
  2. Read 6 books – This is a jump from my previous months of reading 4 books, however i think it’s totally doableI’m excited that i was able to complete this goal! I did a lot of reading in March!
  3. Get at least 15,000 steps each day – It was tough to get 15,000 steps every day last month, that’s why i don’t want to increase it yet. Yes, i was able to complete this goal again! 
  4. Go on 2 field trips – We didn’t go on any field trips last month, so i really want to go on 2 this month. We did go on 2 field trips, finally! 
  5. Remodel our camper trailer – We have an older camper trailer, that we temporarily fixed up a few years ago. Now we are really wanting to do a full makeover on it. I really hope we can get it done this month. We started taking apart the camper trailer, only to realize how badly rotted all the wood and everything was. So after gutting everything from inside, we have put a hold on the project to decide our next steps. 
  6. Plant a garden – With Spring right around the corner, now is the time for us to start planting. We got several things planted and we are about to plant more this weekend.

 

As you can see, i accomplished most of my goals for the month, however I’ve just been in a funk lately and working out/eating healthy have been incredibly hard for me. And that shows with my lack of weight loss. I’m really hoping i can pull myself together for April.

If you set goals for yourself in March, i’d love to hear how it went for you. Did you crush all your goals? Did you struggle to accomplish them?

February Favorites

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing all my favorite things from February.

Feb Favs 2019

Everybody, Always – This has been my favorite book i’ve read this year, so far. I highly recommend it.

Try Treats – I bought the monthly subscription service back at the end of December as a Christmas gift for the kids. We really have loved getting the treats from a different country every month. February we got treats from Ireland and they were fantastic!!

Teaching Textbooks – In February we switched my oldest son from Math-You-See to Teaching Textbooks and it’s been wonderful. He was really struggling with Algebra 1, even after watching the DVD lesson he would end up needing tremendous help with his worksheets. Finally we decided to make the switch and it’s been really great. He is understanding his math so much more!

That’s all for my February favorites. I hope you enjoyed this blog post.
