October g o a l s

Almost half-way through October - can you believe it? Already the 14th!

It's been quite some time since I did any goal setting or life planning because, well... life is unpredictable. With Lucas being in speech, Alexander in school, Nick at work and my work schedule being what it is - it's hard to really sit down and create any kind of "normal" in our home. 

So, this month my goals are pretty simple: 


I am setting time aside to watch a novela, Santa Diabla, because it's such a past time of mine that I didn't know I missed. It's definitely different watching American soap operas versus Spanish soap operas * gasps in Spanish * 

I want to read at least one more book this month. So far, I've read one and I want to finish this month strong. It's the first time I've picked up books that aren't school or parenting-related in almost FOUR YEARS. 

I want to create a closet capsule. I definitely want to start doing that and getting myself on that road to having less and it being more. I guess its Marie Kondo-ing the shizz out of my closet and, ultimately, my house. 


Spending more one on one time with each of the boys. It gets harder with their similar interests and different personalities to spend time ALL together with them. 

Date nights - seriously, they're lacking with these kids. They are far and few in between - especially with such crazy schedules. Have some date night suggestions? 

Family nights! I think, now that the boys are 2- and 4- years, respectively, it would be great to start doing some good movie nights, game nights and fun with the boys. Also family days in general! It's so important and so fun to be able to do that! What games do you play with your littles!? 


This one is a touchy one. It's hard to really pinpoint where I want to be, what I want to do, where I want to be. I began my journey as an educator and completed my Masters in Early Childhood Education - now I have to take the praxis, get back into teaching and really determine where I want to be. This one is a doozy. So maybe that's a goal that would take longer than just the rest of October. 

I want to take more leadership courses, finding more opportunities to help more moms and keep bringing great opportunities to my MOPS group full of wonderful military spouses. 

So tell me - what are your goals? What do you see yourself completing in the next month, three months, six months?


hello .. again!

It seems these have become monthly for me - I have things I want to write, I have thoughts and I have deadlines & then they come and go! Life has been so busy! October itself has been busy and next month will be even busier!

Last month, Nick celebrated 12 years in the Navy! Go Navy, beat Army right ;)
Alexander started school.
My schedule for work changed up.
Toby was baptized ( my cute papasanga of a nephew/godbaby)
And MOPS came back ( enter cheesy smile here. I love these women)

This month!
We celebrated 6 years of Marriage on Friday the 11th! It has been absolutely beautiful! And I can't wait to see what this year brings us!
We also visited a sunflower field ( personal fave.. see pictures below!)
Alexander turns four this month (someone hold me) & it's the same day as my sister who is GETTING MARRIED NEXT MONTH and a day after my brother in law.
So did my sister in law, they're expecting and they're amazing.

Next month,

My SISTER GETS MARRIED (see pictures for her beautiful bridal shower)
We also go up to New York City for said sister in law & brother in laws baby shower (ALREADY!)
Lucas turns two right before Thanksgiving (someone hold me again.. please... it hurts)

& then comes December!
I honestly haven't thought that far. We'll be in NYC three times in November alone!

So. For the rest of October we have to get suits & things tailored, we have to venture on out to little halloween type things & fall type things before I hole myself up to hide from the snow (submit fear face here.. seriously) and we get ready to welcome holiday season.

That's it for us!
Here's some pictures just to bring a smile to your face & update me on what's going on with YOU!
How can I pray for you? How can I help you?
