March Monthly Goals.


Hey there!! Happy happy Thursday! WHAT, it's already Thursday!!?? This week has flown by, seriously!! Today I am sharing my monthly goals plus a couple of things that I am thankful for! Before we begin, my goals will be in categories (health, school, blog, etc) ,and by each goal will be either a D, W, or M this lets you know if it is a goal to achieve daily, weekly, or monthly! Okay, let's begin!! Also, how do you like my Saint Patrick's day graphic?

*Linking up with Joanne, Rebecca Jo, Carrie, Jill, and Shelbee

Health/Wellness/Fitness:

D- Run 1 mile every day (this is what I am doing for Lent, during my run I listen to Christian music and make that my time with God)

D- Do 5 push-ups, sit-ups, and squats on the top of every hour

D- Serve 10 serves (if it is not raining or wet outside)

D- Drink 60+ oz of water (I upped my goal just because I realized how great I feel when I drink water, so why not drink a ton every day!?)

D- Get in shower by 8:00 PM (I take showers at night, and I totally procrastinate! Does anyone else avoid showering until the last minute? If you do, you are just like me! I will end up finding so many other things to do before I shower, so I won't end up getting in until 9! That sets me back a lot on sleep, so I am trying to get in earlier!)

D- Get in bed by 9:30 PM (I am trying to work on getting more sleep, so I want to be in bed by 9:30, I normally fall asleep pretty quickly, so if I get in bed by 9:30, I'll be out soon after!)

W- Workout 3 times a week (This is helpful for me to get into even more shape to help me in volleyball!)

W- Go on 2 walks a week!

Friends/Relationships:

W- Text/Call friends to catch up

M- Meet up with one friend in person!

Family/Quality Time:

D- Make sure to always be kind and loving to fam even if you aren't having a good day!

D- Help Clara get ready in the mornings and help her have a good day!

W- Make sure to have a meal with the whole family at least three times a week (I get back from volleyball pretty late, so Clara is already in bed, so we don't normally all eat together on those nights.)

W- Go on a walk with the family!

W- Watch a movie with the family once a week!

M- Have a game night!

M- Celebrate Pip's 1st birthday!! (We just cannot believe how old Pip is! Our sweet kitten is growing up!)

Cleaning/Organization:

D- Make bed! (I do this anyways, but I wanted to include it anyways!)

W- Clean off bathroom countertop! (My bathroom counter gets so cluttery throughout the week, so I have decided to clean it off once a week!)

W- Vacuum room! (I feel like my room looks so much cleaner after I vacuum it, so I want to do that once a week!)

Blog/Reading:

D- Reach 30-minute reading goal in Apple Books daily!

D- Work on blog posts! (I can't hurt to work on a blog post a little bit every day!)

W- Post 3-5 times a week!

M- Don't go on any unexplained blogging absences!

M- Read 20+ books! (I am really trying to step up my reading game, so 20 books a month can't hurt!)

Now onto Thankful Thursday!

1. I am very thankful that it is March!! Just saying that it is March 2021 makes me happy! I feel  like we have come such a long way since March 2020! It blows my mind that one year ago, almost on the dot, I was at a Foley tournament, then to Orlando, and then I went home and everyone quarantined! During that summer, I went nowhere for what seemed like forever! Now I feel like we have grown accustomed to COVID and all that it brings (masks, quarantines, six feet, etc), but it is so crazy to look at all of the things we did prior to COVID! I am so, so ready to return to what life was like before March 2020, but I'm not sure whether life will ever be the same. Although I hate COVID, I hate that people cannot see their friends and family, that people are sick for days, weeks even with it, that family and friends are dying without a goodbye, but the one good thing that came out of it, is this incredible experience. I am so, so grateful for this time at home and for all of the things I have learned that I never would have if we never had been hit with a pandemic. So, I guess I am thanking you, Corona. Thank you for what you have taught me. Also, I know the pandemic is not even close to over, but I guess I am just realizing how grateful I have been for this past year. I can definitely put it down as "Most Interesting Year"!

2. I am thankful for blogging! I just love getting to put all of my random, crazy thoughts down here! A couple of weeks ago, I was so focused on posting this, posting that, but not taking the time to enjoy writing the posts. And if I don't enjoy blogging, then why do it? So after my break in February, and when I got a little less busy with school, I guess I realized how much I enjoy getting to sit down and blog every day! 

Okay, friends, that's all that I have for you today! I think I will see you tomorrow, fingers crossed, I kind of want to just focus on schoolwork, BUT I do have some interesting favorites that I can't wait for! Happy Thursday, and if I don't see you Friday let me give you a quick heads up! I have another tournament this weekend, so I will be posting my Let's Look on Monday, and still linking up, but after Monday, I won't be posting again until Thursday! Anyways, I hope you have a wonderful day! See ya!

  6. Abby, these are such great goals! I love you put some exercise at every hour...I might try this. Maybe not every hour but sprinkle it through the day. Great points about COVID, we learned and have come a long way.

Let’s Look - Coffee Area!

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!! I am so excited that it is the first Let’s Look of the year! Today we are taking a look into my coffee area!! Linking up with Shay and Erika !  To be honest, I don't drink coffee on a daily basis! Don't get me wrong, I love coffee, and I would drink it every day, but I just drink tea instead! I love hot tea a tiny bit more than coffee! So yeah, I love coffee, but I don't need it every day. Before we get into it, check out my posts from earlier this week! Monday I shared a Christmas 2020 Recap , and Tuesday I shared my Makeup Haul ! Let’s get into it! This is one coffee maker! We have the Keurig, and the water Hamilton Beach water boiler! We got out Keurig a couple of years ago from Costco, and I fell in love immediately! You can make five different cup sizes, and it makes iced coffee as well!  Since I don't do much of the coffee drinking around my house, here is the coffee that my parents use! As for me, I drink Twining’s English Breakfast

Friday Favorites - 1.19.21 + A Big Surprise!!

Hey friends!! Happy Fri-YAY, the best day of the week!! I hope you have had a wonderful week so far! I feel like this week has gone by SUPER fast! I measure the time of my week by WandaVision episodes, and it seems like I just saw Episode 6!! 😂 Today, like always, I will be sharing my FAVORITES from this week + this week I have a little  BIG surprise for you all to see! I can't wait!! Let's get into it! *Linking up with Erika , Andrea , Shelbee , Nancy My first FAVORITE of the day is also my BIG surprise!!  So as you all know, our sweet pup Maddie passed away a couple of weeks ago. We missed having a dog so much, and it was so hard for all of us. So, we started looking for dogs. We connected with the West Tennessee Border Collie Rescue, and they found a male puppy in Prattville, which is so close to us. At first, we weren't sure if he was available for adoption or even fostering. It turns out he was! On Saturday, Mom picked up him from the shelter, and when I got home from

Friday Favorites - It’s 2021!!

  Hey friends!! Happy 2021! I am still amazed that we left 2020 behind, and are now experiencing 2021!! What a year 2020 was, and I am hoping 2021 can be at least a little bit better. Today I am sharing a huge haul of favorites from my Christmas Break, Christmas Eve and Day, New Year’s, and recent thing too!  As usual, I am linking up  with  Erika  and  Andrea , and Shelbee Before I get into this post, I would like to slow down and talk about some of the things happening in America right now. On Wednesday, led by the president, there was an insurrection, people broke into the US Capitol, and people died. This is wrong on so many levels, but this goes even deeper. Back in the Summer, people supporting Black Lives Matter were peacefully protesting and were tear-gassed so that our president could pose for a couple of photos. The people who were rioting outside of the capitol, and eventually some broke in, were not tear-gassed away, and they were breaking into the Capitol. People were shot
