Weekly Goals

Photo Credit
This past week turned out to be pretty eventful- I apologize for my tardiness in posting these! On Thursday while I was out grocery shopping with my daughter, a man ran a red light and t-boned our car midway through an intersection. Thank God, we are both fine (just a little whip lash for me). Our car is probably totalled however. It just goes to show that you never know what a day will hold! I'm glad that I know the God who holds the days!

Last week's goals:

Personal

Finish reading Because He Loves Me by Elyse Fitzpatrick, write a review of it for the blog.

Start reading Let's Study Ephesians (assigned reading for Sunday morning Bible study beginning next month. Also helping me towards my goal of consistent personal Bible study. Two birds with one stone!).

Marriage

Dress up for dinner at least one night. Have candles and music going when Niall walks in the door.

Decide together if we will be holding monthly budget accountability meetings. Pick a time and day to have it.

Parenting

Try a special activity with S this week: water play.
Read up on solid feedings for her adjusted age (10 months) in Super Baby Food, make adjustments.

Home

Make homemade laundry detergent. In order to do this I realized I need to find a five gallon bucket! Saga to be continued, lol.

Make one new meal: Black Bean Burgers  . These were very tasty, albeit a bit mushy. I've started a board on Pinterest to keep track of new meals we've tried with our reviews of them. If you'd like, you can follow it here.

Blog

Submit a guest post.

Get up early on Saturday and write for at least one hour, uninterrupted.

It wasn't a super productive week, as far as goals go. Here's my plan for next week (which I'm hoping will be less eventful/scary/wild):

Personal

Read Chapter One of Let's Study Ephesians by Sinclair Ferguson.

Continue reading Word Hero and The Well Trained Mind.

Marriage

Dress up for dinner at least one night. Have candles and music going when Niall walks in the door (I am bound and determined to finally make this one happen!).


Have our monthly budgeting and financial accountability meeting.


Parenting

Try a special activity with S: Art (crayons, magazine cut outs, etc.)

Encourage finger foods by offering them once each day (she is so anti-solids this kid! Any advice from seasoned Mamas?)

Home

Make homemade laundry detergent.

Make one new meal: The Pioneer Woman's Patty Melts.

Blog

Submit a guest post.


Write for one hour every day, Monday-Friday.


What are your goals for the week?
