September Goals

Happy September!

The weather doesn't reflect it here, but I start to think fall once Labor Day is behind us, so yay!

It's time to take a quick look at my goals for August and set some new goals for September. Here is what I hoped to accomplish last month:
  • Keep at the remodel; post an update or two about progress here on High-Heeled Love. In progress - We've been making progress, but I didn't get any updates posted. 
  • Complete the #NoExcuses 1500 in 31 challenge. Done - I finished the month up with 1520 minutes!
  • Update my jujitsu notebook. In progress - I'm working on it, but I need to sit down and spend an afternoon really getting things up to date.
  • Have a family meeting with the Mister to get started with the Dave Ramsey course. Nope - We really need to do this in September
  • Help the Mister plan our fall garden. Update our garden blog. In progress - We've had a discussion of what we want to plant, but we haven't made a formal plan. I did post two updates though!
  • Start planning for the holiday season; handmade gifts take time. Nope - This HAS to happen this month.
  • Thoroughly enjoy my birthday week and trip to Charleston. - YES!! The weekend was great.

So here are my September goals:
  • Get a remodel progress report posted.
  • Complete the #NOEXCUSES 1500 in 30 September challenge and the 30-day push-up challenge.
  • When the weather cools off, start the Couch to 5K program and pick a race for October
  • Update my jujitsu notebook before our clinic in October
  • Have a family meeting with the Mister about that budget
  • Make a holiday list and schedule and purchase supplies to get started
  • Help the Mister start the fall garden
  • Get supplies together at work for the September & October open enrollment mailings

Musical Monday: Mama's Broken Heart

As usual, my girl crush on Miranda Lambert has me cranking up the volume on the radio. I love when this song pops up on my Pandora; I just have to sing along as loudly as I can.

"Mama's Broken Heart" - Four the Record

That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. This recipe from Ambitious Kitchen for butternut squash and black bean enchiladas looks so yummy! Doesn't it sound like the perfect dish to fill your belly on a crisp fall evening?

2. Krystal has put together a little email blogging course, which has been a lot of fun so far. This post about adding more sparkle to your life isn't part of the course, but fits right in with the theme.

3. We're all looking for ways to streamline our lives, organize our homes and ave a little money. I think Laura hits all three tasks with her post about organizing without breaking the bank.

4. Miss Angie's roommate of five years moved to Canada earlier this month, and she dedicated a Musical Monday post to him with a sweet, sweet letter about what his friendship means in her life.

5. If you've been blogging for a while, cleaning up and updating the blog seems to be a daunting task. (One day, I'll fix all the broken picture links.) Here are five quick ways to refresh your blog without having to spend hours getting things done.
