May Goals


I can’t believe another month has already gone, and we’re starting May. May is a big month for our family. We celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, and we wrap up a school year. I don’t have any huge goals for this month, but it’s nice to put some of these things in writing so they don’t sneak up on me in the midst of adjusting to life with three kiddos.

1. Read 2 books. I am planning to read All the Light We Cannot See and Nobody’s Cuter Than You.

2. Celebrate Hayes’s 4th birthday. My sweet boy is having a ninja turtle party this weekend with his friends, but we also need to have a mini family fiesta on his actual birthday on Tuesday. My little Cinco de Mayo baby!

3. Celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. Todd and I haven’t gone on a date night since James Walker was born, but I’d like to get out and do it this month now that James Walker is sleeping about 10 hours at night. We’ve been married for 7 years and it’s a big thing to celebrate!

4. Celebrate Hudson’s kindergarten graduation. Oh I can’t believe this year is almost over. Hudson will have a sweet little graduation ceremony, they do a small play, and then there’s a reception.

5. Clean out toys before summer break. I want to have a nice little toy purge so that we’ve removed some of the clutter before summer starts and the boys are here all day.

6. Get deeper into Influence work. The conference planning is starting to pick up and I’m finding a nice little rhythm a few mornings every week to get things done. So this month I just want to continue that and stay on track.

7. Make progress on baby books. This one is back on the goals list because I didn’t do anything with it this month. I just need to take a naptime and do it!

8. Plan Hudson’s 6th birthday. I just need to set a date, he needs to decide what he wants to do, and we need to send out some invitations.

What are your plans and goals for the month?

    You will love Nobody’s Cuter Than You! And girl, I need to purge some toys too before summer. It’s always so nice to have a good clean before they’re home all day. Happy Birthday to Hayes!!

    Happy anniversary! Y’all have so much to celebrate this month – so fun!
    And yeah, I agree with Sarah, above – All the Light was an absolutely gorgeous novel. I’d read a lot of hype about it, and it did not disappoint.

    Okay, first – 10 hours?!? How did you get that to happen?! Teach me your ways, mama! 😉
    I’m with you on the date night. We haven’t gone out since Conner was born, but that’s-a-changing! We are going to the beach with both of our families in two weeks for a mini trip, and they are keeping him one night so we can go out. WOOT!
    I don’t even HAVE a baby book yet. Bad mama! Which do you recommend? I wanted Emily Ley’s, but it sold out, and won’t be back out until the fall, I do believe.
    I also need to blog about Conner’s birth story. Luckily, I have all the details on my phone…I just need to type it!
    Tomorrow is my husband’s birthday, and this month is also our anniversary, so May is a good month for us, too!
    Happy weekend! And HAPPY MAY!
