September Goals

7:00 AM

September sure has been a whirlwind! Joe got settled back into school and I got settled into working from home and getting used to being inside to avoid the heat of NC. September was filled with job interviews, getting back into the swing of bible study and small groups, etc. I did end up accepting a job offer (thank you for your prayers!) and for the final bang, Hurricane Florence decided to forecast as a Category 4 coming our way (Eastern NC).

Thankfully, the storm did not cause as much damage as we expected in our part of town but there are many towns near the coast that are suffering from massive flooding and damage. Now more than ever I am so grateful for the first responders and volunteers that are risking their lives to help others. Hopefully, this is the worst to come but I'm told that flooding could be another serious issue. Please keep praying for all the places hit by the Hurricane, they will surely be needed!

There's a little less than half of the month left, but I do like to try to keep my goals posted consistently on the blog so even if it is late, it's here! There's something powerful about having your goals written down, so I try to do this monthly.


-- No major planned events this month!


-- I have been watching "The 100" on Netflix while I cook, it is such a great show! If I were to give a summary, it would be about people in space coming down to earth to deal with different kinds of problems such as radiation, humans already inhabiting the earth, etc.

-- This Whole 30 Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Baked Chicken. If you're new around here, you know that I love to cook. You can follow along with my cooking adventures here and see the recipes I'm trying out on my Jadore Food Pinterest board here!

-- I'm keeping my eyes peeled on the 2018 Fall Foliage report to plan a trip to the mountains with our friends.


-- The First 90 Days - it was a bit of a hard read for me to follow along with because the book caters to those trying to transition into a managerial position. But, I read this to prepare myself to transition to a new job this season! Definitely a book to keep in rotation for a "re-read".


-- Somehow managed to completely skip posting my August Goals. I'll do better next time!


-- Get our home Fall ready! (see last year's Fall Tablescape here)

-- Start new job with a plan and goals set in place!

-- Bake something pumpkin themed

-- Go apple picking

-- Have dinner with a new couple

-- Get a new phone!

-- Finish Mastery Business System

-- Read two books

-- Work out at least 3x a week

-- Get back into Powersheets

-- Clean out my closet and start putting in Fall clothes (Pick out clothes to donate!)

-- Set up an office space (for me!)
Fall is right around the corner and I want to take advantage of the new season well! What are the goals that you've set for yourself this month? I'd love to hear what they are in the comments!

  1. I need to clean out my closet too! I haven't set many goals for this month because I'm doing so much traveling but one thing I hope to accomplish is to finish reading 3 books!

  2. I always love reading goals! Goodluck with all of them better late than never i always say!

  3. How lucky you were able to avoid the hurricane! I'm in DC and we didn't even get rain! My parents live in SC and I've been quite worried, but luckily, they're pretty far inland (about an hour and a half away from Atlanta) so they're fine too.

  4. I need to get in the habit of making monthly goals, things to do & achieve so thx for inspiring me! (& I'm totally trying that whole30 sun-dried tomato recipe!) x, nicole // www.nicoleeigh.com

  5. Some of the footage from the storm was so frightening. It's good that your area wasn't affected much. My heart goes out to those living in those coastal areas who weren't so lucky.

    Congratulations on your job! That's so awesome! I just got a new job too, so I'm going to drink some wine tonight in honor of the both of us :)

    Good luck with your September goals! I have so many goals for the fall because it's my favorite time of year. That's awesome that you're liking The 100! I read the book and loved it so much. I didn't get into the TV show much because it deviates so much from the book, but I've been wanting to give it a second shot.

  6. Good luck with your September goals! My month has been completely thrown off by the hurricane; my parents are from coastal NC and are staying with us until the floodwaters recede. But I am getting a lot of reading done!

  7. Good luck with your September goals! Fall can be the best for productivity

  8. i recently just started the 100 too! I'm so hooked!

  9. Love seeing your goals for September! I'm hoping it cools down here soon so I can do a lot of those fall things too!

  10. Congrats on your new job and its so great to hear you're doing well after the hurricane! What is Powersheets? Have you decided what new phone you'll be getting?!

  11. Congratulations on your new job! How exciting :) I would love to see some photos of your office when its completed. I'm currently working on mine, and I need some inspiration. I'm so glad that the hurricane wasn't worse for y'all. I can't imagine how terrifying that must have been.

  12. Omg congrats on the new job! Hope you're loving it! That chicken recipe sounds amazing too!

  13. Congrats on the new job girl! That's amazing :)
