100DC2 // Checking In After 25 Days

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Last week I took an impromptu blog vacation that coincided with a vacation from my 9-5. Didn’t do anything fancy, it was just a house and life admin kind of vacation. Sometimes you just need those, ya know?

Today I’m back with a check-in post for my second 100 Day Challenge. Four weeks ago I shared my outline of goals (HERE), and I honestly can’t believe that those 25 days have already gone by. Today I just wanted to share my progress with you, and to also say I probably won’t be continuing these challenges in the new year… we’ll see! I might adjust them to be quarterly goals, or who knows! But without further ado, let’s crack on!

Living With Less // Improve Organization

Good morning! 

I have struggled to write this post for quite some time now. No, actually, scratch that. I’ve struggled to start this post for quite some time now. I didn’t even get to the writing part.

This post was originally scheduled for mid-July, then the end of July, then early August, but I just had no idea what to write about, so I kept pushing it back farther and farther until finally it landed here today. Hello! I’m ready now!

100 Day Challenge #2

Good morning, my lovelies!

First of all, Happy Autumn! In this weird world we live in, who thought this day would ever actually come?

I recently found myself wondering what I would do with my “free time” after ALL of my home projects were completed (nevermind the fact that home projects are never really complete). Would I just take it easy? Or would I find something else (that is, an optional something, not something that had to be done out of necessity) to do? The answer to both: yes.

It’s A Wrap! My First 100 Day Challenge

Hello, hello! Long time, no write!

I’m back after an unintentional, month-long (plus) hiatus! And just in time to recap my first 100 Day Challenge. Today is Day 100!

In case you missed the intro to my 100 Day Challenge, you can catch up HERE. And I shared 25-day-point and 50-day-point check-ins, HERE and HERE, too. The gist: I chose nine goals, over three broad categories, to tackle over a 100 day period.

A 40 x 40 Check In + New Priorities

Good morning!

Tomorrow marks the halfway point into my 37th year on this planet we live on. So I thought I’d checkin on my 40 x 40 list progress. In theory, my last checkin post (HERE) should have gone up in January (when I celebrated my 36th birthday), but as it turned out I only posted it just 2 short months ago. So not much new to report here…

Monday Musings // 07.27.2020

Hello friends,

Just a short post today, to say I had an unexpected realization over the weekend:

I worked on a project this weekend for phase one of my bathroom renovation and it required building something from scratch. It was a little nerve wracking to start, but was extremely satisfying when it pretty much worked out how I planned. I was very proud of my efforts and happy with the results. I have a lot of moments of self doubt and it was nice to have a moment of confidence for a change.

Monday Musings // 07.20.2020

Good morning!

Tomorrow is Day 50 of my 100 Day Challenge (HERE)! Wow, time is really flying! And I feel like I’m only making progress on my bathroom renovation goal… which is no small feat, so I’m okay with that. And this is my first 100 Day Challenge, after all, and I’m still trying to get into the swing of it. And trying to give myself grace.

Monday Musings // 07.13.2020

Happy Monday!

Last week I took a couple of days off of work, and when tied in with our office being closed on 7/3 in observation of Independence Day, I had 6 days off in a row… though I did go in to work for a little bit on Friday… and Saturday… because I’m SO bad at being off (or preparing to be off)! Nevertheless, it was nice to get some time away from it all.
