monthly goals update- February 2012

check out this free printable calendar at sissyprint! love it!

Here were my January goals:

organize sewing room- done! finished this first-
I love my new setup! I’m working on pics for you guys this week- I have one project to do in February for it! :D
list 8 items on eBay-
done! took me forever, but done! phew!
prepare 16 freezer meals- done! I’m using the first dinner tonight- chicken spaghetti!

The Money Saving Mom’s Budget by Crystal Paine- did this and loved it! here’s the review.

memorize 1 Peter 1:1-12 and new fitness choreography- done! Our BODYCOMBAT launch is this afternoon!

taking the gentleness challenge to react sweetly to my family – I learned so much from this. I didn’t suddenly become super awesome at gentleness after a month, but I’ve really felt a change in how I speak to the children and how they react to me. Noah even told God thank you for his really nice mommy in his prayer. Conviction and sweetness all at once for me- they notice, they really do.


And my February goals:

prepare 20 meals for freezer-
this is going to be a challenge- good thing I have 29 days this month ;)
crochet a scarf –
have the supplies ready to go!
quick spray paint makeover on my letter holder
hang pictures in my office

How to Have a HEART for Your Kids by Rachael Carman – started this one
7- An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess -I’m already half way done with this and it’s awesome! I can’t wait to tell you guys about it! wow.

Memorize 1 Peter 1:13-25

quiet: make a conscious effort this month to keep my mouth from complaining- this will be interesting!

  1. (Stopping by from Menu Plan Monday...)

    I'm so glad I found your blog! You have such similar goals as I do. I can't wait to see your sewing room! I just spray painted my letter organizer over the weekend! I'm blogging about doing the 29 Day Organizational Challenge at, so I've been slowly working on my office (Yup, good things there are 29 days this month!) I also loved reading about your gentleness challenge. I strive for this every day. Some days are better than others, but I try to treat my kids the way I treat my friends--listen to them and be compassionate. I find that when I remove the hint of urgency, frustration, and impatience from my voice and replace it with the love I feel for my kids, everyone is so much happier!

  2. Great goals and job well done on last months goals. :) I love your goal to be quiet, one of the memory verses for my boys is, "Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
    Keep watch over the door of my lips." Pslam 141:3. After teaching this verse to them I quickly realized how much I needed it too. I love the conviction of the Lord!

  3. Love what you're doing with your blog! (Found you from RooMag.) What's your ebay seller's name? I'd be happy to buy something from you!

  4. Hi! Thank you! thank you for stopping in! :D Here's my seller link:

  5. I love that! Wow! I used that verse in my post today too! :D I love how he can use His word to speak to us all individually. It's crazy! :D

  6. Oh, I think you are so right- joy just comes so much easier when we speak softly and it makes us feel happy too. I love that we are so similar! how cool is that! Thank you for stopping in to say hi- it's so good to "meet" you!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love hearing from you!
