The Monthly Meet Up!!

Yay!  It's May!! 

On the first of every month, my girl Marie, over at Family and the Lake House, and I get together to host a fun link-up party.  We want to know - what are your goals for the month of May?  Big, small, it doesn't matter.  Your goals could be any and everything.  Maybe you want to cut out fast food, keep a clean kitchen, exercise more, not go shopping, organize your pantry, etc.  The possibilities are endless!

You can be as ambitious as you like - maybe you only have one goal for the month, maybe you have 10.  Just join us and have fun!

Not only do we want this to be a great opportunity for you to gain some awesome, creative ideas from other bloggers, but we also want this to be a great networking tool as well.  So please, grab a cup of coffee, tea, water, vodka (we won't judge) or whatever you fancy and party with us.  It will be fun!!

First thing is first.  Just like anything fun, we've gotta have some rules.  Ours are short and sweet:
  • Link back to us - copy and paste our linky button on your post - we want your friends to join in the fun too!
  • Follow us!  We'd love to connect with you, and you to connect with each other!
  • We challenge you - visit, comment and follow at least four other partiers.  Are you up for the challenge?
  • By posting, you give us permission to feature an image or post on our blog(s).  We'll always give you credit and post links back, don't you worry!
Easy enough, right!?  So, grab our button, link up, and par-tay!!!

Here's a recap of April's goals:

1.  Get Back to my Workout Routine.  I'll be honest.  I'm struggling with this!  I've been back to the gym, but my diet is not where it should be, but I'm working on it!  I'm still up a few pounds from vacation.  It didn't help that I missed almost 2 weeks of the gym due to household sickness.

2.  Have a Great Birthday.  Check!  It was a great day - and you can read all about it!

3.  Start Spring Cleaning.  I have!  I started our linen closet and have scrubbed a few other places that definitely needed scrubbing!

4.  Garden Prepping.  We are chugging right along with this!  Jason has built us a little greenbox that we have seeds starting in, I have been working on weeding our perennials, and Jason built an interior fence in the garden and has been busy putting up fence posts for our chicken run expansion. 

Here are my goals for May:


Get back to my pre-vacation weight.

I'm not normally one to put a time limit on a certain number of pounds I want gone, but I know my body can do it.  I've been there before, time to be there again!


Garden, Garden, Garden!

By the end of May our garden should be planted and (hopefully) thriving!!  We should also have our fruit trees in this month.  We are SO excited for our little homestead this summer!!


Cleanup and Update this Blog.

I was looking through here the other day and realized that some of my info on here is verrrry outdated.  Time to get it up to date.  I also started a Recipe page and need to move some of my favorite recipes from my food blog, The Carnitarian Family, over here.

That's it!  Keeping it short and sweet this month.  Do you have any goals for the month of May?  Please link up and share them with us!!
