April Goals

March seemed to fly by for me. We were all sick for a couple weeks, so that made it so I didn’t get as much done as I wanted, but for the most part I did pretty well on my March goals. Here’s a recap:

Family: I met my family goal of doing a fun outing/activity each weekend (even when we were sick!) And my goal of going on a mama/daughter date with Charlotte–we got some yummy gelato as an after school treat one day.

Home: Project: Simplify 2012 is one of the things that never got fully accomplished. I did the first week of decluttering kids’ stuff and then the sickness came and I never finished the rest of them.

Make & Do: I loved the Ginger and Coconut Oil Sugar Body Scrub–making scrubs is always an easy one for me to check off the list. But I never did get around to doing anything with the old windows.

Personal: I really enjoyed reading The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love by Kristin Kimball. Once I picked it up, I sped right through it.

As for my Spring cleanse, I’m actually in the middle of it right now…so I technically didn’t meet this goal in March, but I’m doing it now!

I do still need to set the date for our cookbook club party. I did manage to try out lots of recipes from our chosen cookbook though! We’re using Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes.

And here are my goals for April:


  • Continue with our weekend outings/activities. We had so much fun last month! We went to the aquarium, rode trains, went strawberry picking, and had some fun at the park.
  • Write our sponsored child.


  • Finish the decluttering that I started last month. Specifically these areas: paper clutter and countertops.
  • Clean up the back patio so we can start enjoying some of our meals outside now that the weather is so nice and it’s staying lighter out later.

Make & Do:


  • Book: I’m having a hard time deciding…I have several books that I’m in the middle of right now, so it might just be a good plan to finish all of those up.
  • Fun: Go out with the girls! I need a girls night and I already have one planned, so I know I’m going to meet this goal. Plus, I still need to schedule the cookbook club party so I’m keeping that one on the list.

That’s all for now. Any fun goals on your list for this month?
