February Goals | 2018

Happy February!

January was very transitional for me. It felt like there was so much going on at the beginning of the month (and from the looks of social media, everyone thought January felt really long!) but the hard parts worked themselves out and it ended on a very high note! I spent lots of fun time with family and close friends, and I did pretty well on my goals!

January Goal Recap:

  • Send Save the Dates + Bridesmaid Proposals –ย ย We’ve decided not to do Save the Dates since our date is so close, but I did send out Bridesmaid Proposals and all of my girls said yes! More on that soon.
  • Book wedding photographerYes! We’ve already taken engagement photos with her and I’ve put up a sneak peek on Instagram. She’s amazing and I can’t wait to share the rest!
  • Arrange hotel block for wedding guests – Oops, I haven’t done this yet.
  • Go dress shopping!ย ๐Ÿ™‚I found my dress! You can read more about that here.
  • Write/submit two freelance articles- I’ve pitched a couple of articles, but one of them was pushed back until February. So this is halfway crossed!
  • Polish manuscript and send to agent – This one did not happen this month, but I have really exciting news on this coming up!
  • Read two booksDone! And they were two great books!!

So, January was pretty good as far as goals were concerned, minus two really important things that should’ve gotten done. I’ll be moving those over to my February goals. Here’s a look at those:

February Goals:

  • Pick Bridesmaid Dresses
  • Arrange Hotel Block For Wedding Guests
  • Create Wedding Website and Registry
  • Book Last Few Wedding Vendors
  • Date Night with Rob
  • Write + Submit One Freelance Article
  • File Taxes
  • Read Two Books
  • WRITE ๐Ÿ™‚

You’ll notice that my writing goals have changed a little, and I can’t wait to explain why. Until then, just know that I’ll still be writing! ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I know that the majority of my goals are wedding related (If you aren’t a fan of weddings, I know this can be annoying!) but our wedding day is approaching so quickly that we have to get things done ASAP! Valentine’s Day is also this month, so I really want us to have a non-wedding related date night ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s your biggest goal for this month? I’ve love to know! We can cheer each other on in the comments! ๐Ÿ™‚
