Monday Coffee Talk Pt. 6
Happy Monday Peachies! I know, all the grumbles. Me too, friends, me too but let's not focus on the fact that it's Monday. Let's celebrate today! Why do we wait until a birthday, anniversary or holiday to celebrate anyway? Treat yourself to something today, maybe a winter coffee from Starbucks or a mani/pedi! That new pair of boots you've been swooning over?! Go buy them because tomorrow isn't guaranteed so live life to the fullest every. single. day.
Snap a pic of what you do to celebrate today & share it with me on Instagram (PeachyKeen31) #celebratewithsotos or Snapchat (georgiapeachy82).
Since today is Monday it's time for my Monday Coffee Talk. Here's how it works.
Monday Coffee Talk is where bloggers can list three goals they wish to accomplish for the week. They can be personal, business, blog related. Whatever it is you want to accomplish, just write 'em down and link 'em up or post them in the comments. I'll go over last week's goals first and see how I did then list three more for this week i'd like to accomplish.
Here's how I did on last week's goals.
1. Finish the last of my Thank You notes and send them out.
I got the first wave done after my bridal shower but with our wedding & reception we were blessed with even more beautiful, wonderful gifts.
I did bake a cheesecake and sent it with my hubby to work today for him to give one of his work partners/friends because he and his wife went
above and beyond in the gift department. There are also pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for him to take everyone else because a lot of his
work friends have been beyond generous and kind to us. Some of them even traveled from Georgia to Florida for the wedding.
♡ This is a big fat No. I don't know what happened, I just know they didn't get done.
2. Finish my "It's A Love Story, Baby Just Say Yes" posts & the two sponsored posts that I have scheduled for this week.
I've been missing my blogger community lately. With everything we had going on I haven't had much time for blogging and my groups.
I'm super excited for a couple of opportunities that have come to me in this area of my life. It's given me that extra get up and go.
♡ This one is a 1/2 win! I did get Part 2 posted of our "It's A Love Story, Baby Just Say Yes" posted but there is still more to come. I'll probably break this down into a couple more Wedding Wednesday posts though. I also got one of my sponsored posts up. I have one more to do, still.
3. Start making and selling my jewelry again.
Again, with the wedding this got pushed to the wayside but I'm missing it something terribly. I'm not to the point of selling it big time but
my hope is that around the beginning of the year I can accomplish that goal and start selling in small boutiques.
♡ Not even close. I thought about making myself a couple more pieces but didn't even get around to doing that.
AND a bonus goal
4. To get back on my work out/eating healthy routine.
We've been so bad about eating out since before the wedding. So yeah, a month of eating bad and not working out is catching up with us and
we're not feeling good. It's time for a change.
♡ Sort Of. We have started eating better & eating at home again. All that eating out/junk food made us feel blah. We've been eating lots more veggies though. The working out part just hasn't happened yet but I start back with my 21 day challenge group this week so it'll be going down for sure!
Now for this week's goals.
1. Complete Goals 1-4 from last week because those should have been done like yesterday.
2. Work on scheduling blog posts in advance.
Not sitting down to write them at 9 a.m. and try to post them by 10.
That rarely works out. I feel discouraged in my blog group because there is a dead line to be able to post a
link to your blog post for the day & I'm usually missing that deadline and my posts aren't getting out there.
3. Make a pretty Pin It button for my blog.
Make a new signature & Sidebar button.
And a bonus goal for this week...
4. Mate all those socks and iron all my husband's work clothes for the week.
So those are my goals for the week. They seem easy enough so hopefully I can get all this accomplished.
What are your goals this week?
Let's encourage each other!
