The LOL that Was Spring Goals

spring goals update in a quick summary: lol.

okay here's the long version of that update - remember i was all 'seasonal goals? yeah 3 months, i gots this, goalz'?  hahahaha i was hilarious.

"1. write and publish more posts.  ...  so in the next 3 months let's say... at least 40 posts."  i feel like this was the most hilarious fail of all, 40?  what was i thinking?!  would you like to know how many i actually posted?  go ahead and check in the sidebar - 19.  yup.

"2. get all things donated!"  not a fail at all, i donated tons.  the salvation army came and got furniture, clothes, kitchen stuff, just bags and bags of goodies.  it was awesome to get all that out before the moving process, it made things so much easier.  i actually have a small box going now for more donations, because i got all new towels and downsized a couple more things.  luckily the salvation army has a drop off literally on the other side of the fence behind our alley.

"3. pack and move!  lease is up at the end of april." done, of course!  since we're in our new house and all.  i actually did this twice because (including pet sitting time) i was at my parents for about a month before things were finally ready with the house.

"4. on a related note, take photos/video of all of that packing ^^^."  haha looking back, that was just adorable.  as if i'd really have time to photograph things while packing and moving?  no, no.  i'm just not that dedicated.  lots of you saw my updates on instagram when i decluttered and also right before i called salvation army for pick up.

"5. go to a street fest.  they get started end of may, so i should be able to make at least one before mid june."  i actually did get to this one, but just barely.  there were two before the one i actually attended that i usually attend each year, but i just didn't make them this year.  so we finally ended up going to maifest 2 or 3 weekends ago because it's all things german which john loves and it's close to our house.

so i really did accomplish 3 out of 5.  percentage-wise that looks okay, except for the fact that the two i didn't do were the hardest ones.  whoops.  okay summer.  summer will be better, si?

Life According to Steph1. have blog day with betsy and check off all 10 items on my to do list.  we have this scheduled for next saturday, so blog day will definitely happen.  we do this at least once a year but usually twice, either in person or virtually, where we get together and push each other to get tons of blog related things done in one day.  like post writing, social media, blog design, really anything.  i made a 10 item checklist and i will complete it.

2. get patio furniture.  this will depend on when this particular season ends according to the link up but assuming that i have all of august, i'd like to get patio furniture.  we currently have just the grill out there so i'd like to get a table and chairs set, which will all go on sale in august.

3. start a shopping ban/spending freeze.  i don't have all the details figured out yet, but perhaps a month long one?  perhaps just specific categories?  i plan on figuring this out and posting about it.

4. make red, white, and blue jello shots for the 4th.  not only is it on my 101 in 1001 list, i just really want to do it.  i keep saying i will but never do.  and come on, i made 1000 one new year's eve, how hard can say, 50, layered shots be?

5. enjoy my alaskan cruise!  well judging how spring goals went, i have to have at least one that i can check off, right?  we go the first week of august and i can't wait.

linking up with steph and sara.
