February Favorites

Hi Guys!

Today i'm sharing all my favorite things from February.

Feb Favs 2019

Everybody, Always - This has been my favorite book i've read this year, so far. I highly recommend it.


Try Treats - I bought the monthly subscription service back at the end of December as a Christmas gift for the kids. We really have loved getting the treats from a different country every month. February we got treats from Ireland and they were fantastic!!


Teaching Textbooks - In February we switched my oldest son from Math-You-See to Teaching Textbooks and it's been wonderful. He was really struggling with Algebra 1, even after watching the DVD lesson he would end up needing tremendous help with his worksheets. Finally we decided to make the switch and it's been really great. He is understanding his math so much more!


That's all for my February favorites. I hope you enjoyed this blog post.

Goals For March 2019

Hi Guys!

Every month this year, i am making goals for that month and sharing them with you all. Today i'm going to be sharing my goals for March...

march goals 2019

  1. Lose 5 pounds - This is the same number i had last month, and i think it's doable again for March.
  2. Read 6 books - This is a jump from my previous months of reading 4 books, however i think it's totally doable.
  3. Get at least 15,000 steps each day - It was tough to get 15,000 steps every day last month, that's why i don't want to increase it yet.
  4. Go on 2 field trips - We didn't go on any field trips last month, so i really want to go on 2 this month.
  5. Remodel our camper trailer - We have an older camper trailer, that we temporarily fixed up a few years ago. Now we are really wanting to do a full makeover on it. I really hope we can get it done this month.
  6. Plant a garden - With Spring right around the corner, now is the time for us to start planting.
That's it, those are my goals for the month. I'd love to hear your goals.

Goals For February 2019 *Update*

Hi Guys!

Last month i shared my goals for February, and today i'm going to tell you how i did with my February goals...

Feb 2019 goals update

I'm kind of scared to share this update because February was a tough month for me, but here goes.
  1. Read 4 books - This is the same goal i had last month, however this goal will increase next month. I completed this goal easily, and even started reading a 5th book!
  2. Lose 5 pounds - Since February is a shorter month and it has a few different holidays, plus one of my kids birthday, i thought i would make my goal smaller. This was sooo tough, but i did it! I lost 5 pounds last month!
  3. Buy only 1 coffee from a coffee shop - I feel like if i don't have this goal i will buy coffee every time i leave the house, so this goal is sticking around. I failed this goal HARD! I got 4-5 coffees out last month. 
  4. Get at least 15,000 steps each day - This shouldn't be too hard of a goal for me to accomplish, but it is a step up from last month. I did it, but man some days i just didn't want to take another step. This was tougher than i thought it was going to be.
  5. Go on 2 field trips - Last month my goal was 3 field trips and i believe that if i didn't set that as a goal we probably wouldn't have gone on any, so i'm keeping them in for now until it becomes a habit. Another failed goal, we didn't go on ANY field trips last month. 
  6. Workout 5 times a week - Another goal that is the same as last month. I feel like it works well for me though. I completed this goal, but not without trouble. 
  7. Blog 3 times a week - I don't know if you noticed, but my January posts were not consistent at all. I really want to get more consistent with blogging, so hopefully having this goal will push me to get better at it. I kind of completed this goal, but not really. I tried my best and i think there was one week where i only ended up doing 2 posts that week. So it was close, but not a complete victory. 
  8. Do some form of scripture writing every day - I really want to get more into the habit of studying the bible, memorizing scripture, etc., so i'm hoping this helps me with that. I started off strong, but completely failed this one. I maybe did it for like a week, and never did it again. So another failed goal. 

As you can see February was just a tough month for me, lots of failed goals, but i'm not giving up. March is going to be amazing, and i'm going to crush all those goals. Tomorrow i will be sharing my goals for March.

If you set goals for yourself for February, i'd love to hear how it went for you. Did you crush all your goals? Did you struggle (like i did)?
