February Goals

So I've decided to make a list of goals for the month.  I was inspired by Lucy, and since we share a love of crossing things off of lists, I thought monthly goals would be a good way to get me motivated.

1.  Start exercising.  I'm not even putting a requirement on here of how often.  This month if I start...well that's progress.

2.  Finish reading The Omnivore's Dilemma, and blog about it.

3.  Stick to our grocery and eating out budgets for the month.  This is where we struggle the most!

4.  Catch up on old Glee episodes, in preparation for the new season.

5.  Try to not buy more than 5 bottles of wine when hubby and I go wine tasting in Traverse City for Valentine's Day weekend.

6.  Decide if I want to do a garden in the backyard and start the seeds early or buy the plants.

7.  Finalize air and hotel plans for our trip to Italy this October! Does anyone have any hotel suggestions for Rome and the Amalfi Coast?

8.  Post things that I need to sell on Craigslist.

Well, I guess that's it for now!  Can't wait to get some things crossed off!

Have a great day!


  1. Wow! Great goals. I didn't know you were planning a trip to Italy. I went to Rome in 2009!

  2. I LOVE Traverse City!!! You two will have a wonderful time there for V-day :)

    And ... I love Glee. Didn't know you watched it too :)

  3. Yay for goals! I think once you start to put exercise into your won't be able to stop. It's an addiction.

    I LOVE glee! Can't wait for the new season.

    A trip to ITaly!! Lucky girl :D

  4. I'm with you on #3 and 4! I can only dream of Italy!! How amazing.

  5. Thanks for your comment, I enjoyed popping over here and what a discovery! Looks like you have a ton of good recipes and menus. I love to discover a new recipe blog and I'll look forward to visiting again.

  6. I just found your blog today, so cute. My friends call me the 1950s housewife so I can totally relate. :)

  7. Hi Ashley! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for the sweet comment. It looks like you share my love of cooking - I feel like I'm always in the kitchen making something. Your list is great. It probably helps you finish when all the world can see. I'll have to give that a try. Well, it sounds like lots of snow is headed our way! Stay warm!


Thanks so much commenting! It really brightens my day!
