October Goals

To me October is one of my favorite and sad months. On October my amazing Queen my mother was born and unfortunately my grandfather (her dad) passed away the day before her birthday.  And only God knows how much I miss him.  He was the one that would give me all the love in the world besides my parents.  He simply adored me and I adored him even more.  And Lord knows how my heart broke into pieces seeing my mother suffered the way she did.  Especially because a year later my grandmother (her mom) decided to let herself go as well. But despite the fact of all this sadness during this month I’m glad I still have my queen to say happy birthday too and to express all the love I have for her. 

I have included 31 October goals hoping to complete each one of them.  It has been something I’ve been thinking these past days regarding setting short term goals each month. 

1. Send my mom a care package with her birthday gift and some goodies.
2. Send arrangement flowers to my grandparent’s grave.
3. Get Knela groomed.
4. Start meal prepping.
5. Begin shopping for Christmas gifts.
6. Do an all house clean up.
7. Go to a pumpkin patch.
8. Buy someone sunflowers.
9. Walk on a breast cancer awareness marathon.
10. Exercise at least 3 times a week.
11. Go zip lining with Jules.
12. Begin my day with prayer.
13. Buy some pumpkin scented candles.
14. Go to a haunted theme park.
15. Send my husband a care package 
16. Start my first shutterfly book (Fort Bragg, NC)
17. Dye my hair completely black.
18. Buy a coat for the winter.
19. Try not to eat dinner outside for this whole month.
20. Write my cousin an encouragement letter (he’s in a rehab program).
21. Rock some brown and burgundy lipsticks and nail polishes.22. Begin a list of people I’ll send Christmas cards too.
23. Try and blog a Pinterest recipe.
24. Start a financial planning (thanks to Elena from Baby Ridley Bump).
25. Do a DIY Fall project.
26. Buy candies just in case I have kids knock on my door the 31st.
27. Switch out my closet for Fall, organize my jewelry and donate clothes I haven’t worn.
28. Schedule doctor’s appointments and make sure to go to each one.
29. Stick to my skin care routine.

  1. Thanks for the shoutout girlfriend! Love this list, you are really thinking of others and that is so wonderful of you! I am so sorry about the loss of your grandfather. I lost my grandma a year ago today and also a good friend the same day, so I can totally relate to you on that level. Hope all is well! Good luck with all of your goals!
