Fall Goal Roll Call - How did I do?

1. Seasonal purge and reorganize, focusing on jewelry storage as well as making sure I'm not hoarding things in rooms we don't use a lot (spare rooms, library). Linen closet done the last week of September. Jewelry, makeup, spare room, scarves done the first week of October. I blogged about it here.  I also reorganized the upstairs in general over the first week of December.
2. Make homemade pumpkin spice latte. 10/5 and 10/6 with a single cup recipe.
3. Clean shower head by adding 1/3 cup of baking soda and 1 Cup of white vinegar to a gallon size bag and leaving it on the shower head overnight. Dunzo 10/2

4. Make an alternative to cream of...soups. Dunzo 10/6

5. Try three new casserole recipes and two new apple or pumpkin desserts.
   Chicken parm casserole made on 10/6
   Stuffed cabbage casserole on 10/19
   I made up a broiled chicken dish on 12/7.

   Pumpkin Cupcakes with healthier cheesecake frosting made on 9/23
    Baked apple cider donut holes made on 10/5
   Mini pumpkin cheesecakes - you should totally make these. Made on 10/11
6. See one movie in the theater and watch two new to me movies on TV.
    Trouble with the Curve 10/6 at home
    Hello I Must Be Going 10/6 at home
Movie in the theater - fail

7. Get back into an exercise regimen. No excuses.
     Started 30 miles in 30 days on 10/11. Squats too. I did pretty well with both, but slacked on the miles towards the middle of the month. I crapped out on this.

8. Do not let the leaves win in the back yard. I showed them who was boss. Three times. 

9. Remove flowers and re-mulch beds, winterize outdoor stuff. Done 10/20
10. Book room for Kim & Esteban's wedding in Mexico and put deposit down for December 2014 cruise. Cruise booked on 10/15, Mexico room booked on 11/7. Dunzo.

11. Vacuum window treatments.

12. Try baking french bread.

13. Dry clean winter coats. MFD picked them up on 10/19. He was thrilled. 
14. Wash windows.

15. Roast pumpkin seeds. MFD carved our pumpkin and we roasted the seeds on 10/31. 

16. Host Friendsgiving. Hosted on 11/16.
