I know I saw this every month, but I am blown away that it's already November. Especially since today it's in the 60s and sunny outside! I should be outside taking advantage to rake leaves, but I'm writing this post instead. Oops! :-)
Here's how I did in October: Killed it!
Complete the Evansville Half Marathon.Done! I wrote about it here and at the time I wasn't sure if I'm going to do another one, but I'm already considering two next year! Finish planning Cecily's birthday party.I have everything planned out and her party is this weekend. Hopefully it all goes well! Take the kids to the pumpkin patch and night time corn maze.Done! We had a blast and I wrote about it here. Enjoy my cousin's wedding (and our wedding anniversary!)We had a great time and the kids both walked down the aisle! Take time out to enjoy my favorite time of year amongst the craziness that is work right now.Done. Since it's been so crazy I have made an effort to look around and enjoy all of the colors nature has to show us this time of year. We drove through the Bloomington, Indiana area on my way to my cousin's wedding at peak color and I definitely paid attention. It was beautiful! I also stopped to take a photo along the river in my hometown.
And here are my goals for November:
- Get the yard taken care of. We have a several large trees in our yard and we wind up with tons of leaves every fall that we have to rake. My goal is keep up with them so we aren't out there in January raking, again.
- Complete my two races. I'm running an 8k here in Evansville and a 10k on Thanksgiving. I didn't run much in October since it was so crazy and I have been taking time off for my foot to heal. I did run my fastest 5k ever though!
- Finish the Outlander series. I have been reading this series since I think April and am on the second to last book. I zipped through the rest of the series and then stopped basically. Book club has started up again so I really need to get this finished already.
- Book our Fast Passes for Disney. It's hard to believe that we booked our trip in July and now we're ready to set up our Fast Passes this month. It will be January before I know it!
