April Goals

This year I am breaking down my resolutions into (hopefully) attainable monthly goals. The first of each month I am going to update you on how I did the previous month and what I hope to accomplish during the current month. My March goals have been updated with what I actually did.

Holy cow am I ever late to the goal game. Luckily for me the month isn’t half over… yet. March was a great month. The kiddos had spring break which was so nice to have them home for a week. I was incredibly busy last month planning a big event at the school so I didn’t do much creating in the kitchen as I had hoped.

The beginning of March I joined a gym -even saying that it seems weird. It is a crossfit-ish type class and much to my surprise I actually love it. It challenges me and I am finding out I am so much stronger than I thought. It is at 5:30 in the morning and boy is it ever difficult to get out of bed when my alarm sounds at 5:05! But as I wobble-walk to the car at 6:15 I feel so great and am so glad I hauled my bum out of bed. If you’re in Omaha and you’re looking for a great place to workout with an incredibly supportive group of women let me know. We can get strong together!


I love Instagram and I think it is so fun to look back through and see what my month was like. It looks like I consumed a lot of wine during March -which I totally did. 🍷 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

April seems like it is going to be full of busy work. I went to a conference at the beginning of the month. Which was FANTASTIC! I have plans this month to continuing to minimize my possessions and lots (and lots) of yard work.
