October Goals: What Really Happened

Well, here we are, at the end of October and it’s time to review how the monthly goals went. Before we do that though, how about we take a peek at the costumes that Jenny and I procured for Halloween this year? Image

We love A League of Their Own – it’s one of the many movies we are constantly quoting to one another – and we were able to find some relatively inexpensive costumes online. I can’t tell you how many people have made sure we know that there is no crying in baseball. 

Ok, on to October. Here’s where we were:



I’ve found (so far, I’ve only done this for a month) that I really like setting some goals for myself. It makes me keep out of some of my self-imposed ruts and keeps me productive. The good news is that I did read, I did purchase something for myself that I really wanted, cooked a delicious new recipe and purchased a coat I desperately needed. The bad news, though I don’t actually think it’s bad, is that I accomplished only one of the specific goals from October. Let’s take a look at how things really played out:


October Want Goal: Home Alone Holiday T, available on Etsy

What Actually Happened: I LOVE Phoenix. TIckets were on sale for a show at one of my favorite venues and I bought them the second they went on sale. That was a very easy choice. 

October Eat Goal: Tortellini dish, available at Good Housekeeping

What Actually Happened: I made it and it was awesome. Recipe below because I modified it a bit.

October Wear Goal: Military jacket, available at Nasty Gal

What Actually Happened: I am not totally in love with the military jackets I was finding and frankly, I was being really cheap. Then I was at Target one day and someone had returned a 3.1 Philip Lim trench that had been marked down so obviously, I got that. I needed a trench anyway. I do not regret this decision.

October Read Goal: The Last Summer of the Camperdowns by Elizabeth Kelly

What Actually Happened: I got through 2 chapters and it bored me. I’m sure it’s good, but I’ve been distracted this month and sick, so I opted for my two favorite magazines, as well as a very easy mystery read. I would not recommend it, but nevertheless it was a nice Sunday afternoon-windows open-hot tea-football on in the background read. 

Don’t fret! I’m almost there with November goals, which I’m so sure you’re all so excited to see. Stay tuned, they’ll post tomorrow!
