October Goals


Happy October. We are literally 28 days away from Halloween, 51 days away from Thanksgiving, 83 days away from Christmas and 90 days away from New Year’s Eve. HOLY CRAP! I can’t believe 2016 is almost over. It’s been a while since I’ve done monthly goals on my blog and I figured I would start doing them again. I’m not sure why I stopped. 

I definitely feel like I find myself accountable when I share it on my blog. Does anyone else feel that way too? 

October Goals

Personal Goals 

  • Read 1 book // I’ve already started to read “The Husband’s Secret” so now I just need to finish it. 
  • Go on a double date // One of my friends and I have been talking about doing this double date and we’re finally planning it for this month. Probably doing a fall festivity. 
  • Complete some of the Fall Bucket List // We have so far done our nature scavenger hunt. 
  • Family photos // Even though Brian and I aren’t married we do want to get some family photos done for our apartment. 
  • Try apple cider // I’ve never had one.

Blog Goals

  • Schedule posts on time // I’ve been slacking on scheduling my posts which sucks because I’m so good with planning ahead.
  • Gain 200 followers on Instagram // Instagram has been such a pain with growing. Especially now with the new algorithm. 
  • Gain 100 followers on Twitter // I’ve been putting Twitter on the back burner because I was focusing on Instagram & Pinterest so much so now I want to focus more on Twitter. 
  • Collaborate with more bloggers // I love working with bloggers especially when it comes to beauty so if you’re someone who’s interested in collaborating let me know. 
  • Reach out to some brands // I haven’t done this in a long time since brands have been reaching out to me which is why I stopped reaching out but some of the brands do reach out don’t want to pay. BE SURE YOU GET PAID FOR WHAT YOU’RE DOING BLOGGERS!!!

I’m keeping October goals pretty simple since I don’t want to over do it because I plan to be out more before the weather gets colder in Wisconsin. We have so many things planned for the month of October and we can’t wait to do them with the kiddos. 

What are your goals for the month of October?

    The husbands secret was a book club book for me and I loved it! I cant wait to hear what you thinK!

  • I love fall! The boys looked like they were enjoying the nature hunt on snap! 🙂

  • It frustrates me when companies reach out but don’t want to pay. A lot of work goes into putting together a blog post and why should some companies get free advertising?

  • Girl try you some apple cider! It’s delicious! I’m looking forward to having some fall photos with the family done as well! 🙂

  • Good luck with your goals this month, girl 🙂

    xoxo, Jenny

  • JeeYoung

  • Adriana

    OMG you need to try apple cider! It is LIFE changing girlfriend! Haha I hope you meet your goals and more this month! I’m going to try and focus more on Twitter too. It’s one of those platforms that really requires attention! xoxo

  • Andrea McCann

    Girl how have you not tried apple cider?! That’s nuts! Make sure you get caramel apple cider 🙂 btw I always love collabing with you!

  • I’ve been planning to connect with brands again myself. It’s annoying when PR companies say their client doesn’t have a budget. If they didn’t, they’d be reaching out to us, not the PR companies. 😉 PR companies get paid, so why can’t we?

    I can’t believe you’ve never had apple cider!!! Girl, cross that off you bucket list soon that’s one of my favorite things about fall!
