Yesterday was the start of hunting season around here and something called Movember. If you are not familiar with it, basically many men shave their faces November 1rst and let it grow all month long. Many raise funds for prostate cancer.
I teased hubby yesterday about shaving his mustache off. (He has only shaved it off about 3 times in the 22 years I've know him) Low and behold he does. It is kinda weird looking at a face I know and love so much and it has so drastically changed. Really weird kissing him without it as well. However I still love every square inch of him, mustache or no. LOL

Anyway today is the start of a new month of goals. I gave a ton of thought to what I wanted to do this month and this is what I came up with.
I am so hoping to get this all done this month.

1. Totally and completely clean my kitchen. The walls need washed, the cupboards need cleaned out and sorted through. I have 2 pantry cupboards in the hallway that I want to condense down into one. Oh yea and the ceiling needs washed as well. LOL

2. I would love to get all or at least most of my Christmas shopping/making down this month. I have some gifts I am making and I really want to get all the other stuff bought. I would love to focus on the meaning behind the holiday during the month of December. I know I probably will not get my baking done and I am totally ok with that. Something for Sarah and I to bond closer with in December. :)

3. Our spare room. This needs cleaned out in the worst way. This will be the room that our foster children go into and possibly our future children. (SQUEAL) I really want to get this done by December 1rst so that hopefully we can get our home inspection started then. Fingers crossed.

 I wanted to share the pics of the room so that I could be held accountable for it. I maybe just maybe will share pics of the kitchen next week. LOL
Hopefully by the end of the month this room looks amazing and empty. :)

I am linking up today with Aurie


  1. Great goals - I'll be cheering you on! I love to organize....if we are still without power next week maybe I can take a road trip :)

  2. Oh you are so accountable now, girl! I love your goals. Maybe I can do a challenge with you...a kitchen cleaning challenge. If I can summon the energy anyways. I need to do everything you mentioned. Have fun *wink wink*

  3. It sounds like an exciting time for you. Enjoy working on your goals this month!

  4. Sounds like we are on the same page with goals 1 & 2 this month. So excited to have a partner to work on this with!

  5. Sherri, I totally get the organization thing. I'm totally avoiding Christmas until December 1 though. I may have to start thinking about it early though to get some gift ideas out. By the way your spare room looks like my laundry room. It's one of my focuses this month. Good luck.

  6. Great goals! And way to plan ahead for Christmas!!

  7. I also need to start planning ahead for Christmas! Hubby will be in Ireland for the first half of December. If I don't get things started now, we may not even get a tree! Yikes!

  8. Organizing can be so daunting, but once you dive in, it goes quick and you are happier with the finished product. I'll be cheering you on!

  9. Making a space ready for people is the best reason to organize! Wishing you all the best on your goals.
