Weekend Shenanigans and Goals

Hello friends, and welcome to all you lovely new readers who have stopped by from this fabulous giveaway! There's still plenty of time to enter, and lots of great blogs to check out, so get to it!

Our weekend was cut short because I had to work on Sunday, but that didn't stop us from having the best day on Saturday! We hit up the links at a golf course in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, then headed over to Brewbakers, the bar where we first met, for drinks and food.

You may be wondering, "wow Katie, are you a golfer?" And my answer to that is "Yes. I am SO pro." I played one hole and made a triple bogey on a par three--not bad considering I haven't attempted to play an entire golf hole in two years AND I had to use clubs that clearly were not made for ladies!

No action shots of me, but look at that handsome golfer!
 I also spent a little time jotting notes in my journal for my NaNoWriMo novel, which made me realize it might be a good time to do an update on my November goals. We are over halfway through the month, so let's take a little check-in:

- Complete NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)
Well, I've got about 2,000 words, and the goal is 50,000. Technically, I should AT LEAST have 25,000 words by now. I will most likely finish it all in a few evenings at the end of the month--that's just my style. 

- Start going to spin class twice a week
I managed to go once last week! It was brutal and I didn't last longer than half an hour. I'd call that progress.

- Get a head start on Christmas shopping
I am ALL over this goal, I've already bought three presents for Matt and I have a list of ideas for the rest of the family. No surprises here, shopping is what I do best.

- Unpack and organize all the furniture we brought from my parent's house
The furniture has been somewhat organized. The boxes full of memorabilia from my childhood are still in the garage, eagerly awaiting the magic of my organizational skills.

- Stop playing Candy Crush
Um, work in progress, but I haven't played it at all this weekend! That's HUGE people--a great, big GINORMOUS accomplishment! 

Keep me accountable, dear reader! How are your monthly goals going, or do you set goals for yourself by month?


  1. Those drinks look good. I would like them in my life. Also, people talk about going to spin class a lot, that it kind of makes me want to try it, but then I just go back to not exercising. My main and most important goal this month is to get a job... we'll see how that goes!

  2. I need to get cracking on my Christmas shopping. It's much less stressful when it's done little by little and ahead of time.
