OCT 18

October was a literal blur. And I know I say that a lot, but I mean, I don’t even know where it went. It’s somehow already nearly a week into November and my brain is still in summer mode. 

I still don’t have a theme for next year. My theme this year didn’t last. Looking back on the year, I’ve done a lot of going with the flow and for someone who likes order, I’m pretty impressed with the way I’ve been able to adapt. Next year I would like to have more focus and direction. One of my goals for this month is to start thinking about my goals for next year. 

At any rate, October was not quite what I imagined it would be at the beginning of the month, but I’m hoping to finish the year off strong.



-Read 52ish books. 

I started reading one book in October, but haven’t finished it. I’m about halfway, so there’s that. 



-Attend the temple monthly

If you’ve been following along this year, you know I’ve struggled with this goal, BUT! I visited the temple twice in October and am making it a priority to attend in November and December as well!

-In September I said my goal was to read At the Pulpit. During Conference, we were challenged to read the Book of Mormon before the end of the year, so that is my new goal. I’m pretty behind, but I’m trying. 



-Run 400-500 miles

I am a couple of miles away from hitting 400 and have one more race to go this year!  (Come run with me on Thanksgiving!!) 

-Go to the dentist 

Believe it or not, I have an appointment for November. I’m dreading it, but I hate to not cross something off. haha



-Create a bucket list with Mike and cross off at least one item.

One of the things I had on our list was to participate in a lantern fest. I actually won two free tickets to attend the lantern fest in SLC! It was kind of a bust, but at least I can say I’ve done it! 


I’m still working on scrapbooking and doing our 72 hour kits. Those have been placed on the back burner as we have been working towards getting our home ready for a baby. (No actual baby yet, but we know it could happen at any time and want to be prepared)

Speaking of, please continue to share our website ( and scream it from the rooftops we are hoping to adopt. We have quite a lofty goal for this and need all the help we can get!

Last! We will be holding an online auction to help raise the necessary funds for the adoption (Instagram: @flintfamilyadoptionauction) Starting on November 30


I know November will fly by even quicker than October, so wish me luck! 

How are your goals coming along? You have less than 60 days left for this year. Set some goals now and finish strong with me!
