Fall goals - how did I do?

WELL. How did I do? 

1. Become Bob MFing Vila in the home improvement project arena. Not exactly, but I did get back to painting walls (haven't done that since we bought our house eons ago) and I learned how to use a hand sander. Boom. 

2. Get up 15 minutes earlier one weekday each week. Victory. Usually on's easy, because I'm excited for the weekend. LOL

3. Attend Opera on the Mall and 20th Year high school reunion. Fellow classmates, did you get your tickets? Opera on the Mall was moved from its initial date due to rain, then on the new date I was sick. So, fail, but not for lack of trying. 

4. Participate in a Pancreatic Cancer Walk with my family in memory of my Grandmom. November 7. 
5. Finish using the remaining nail polishes in my arsenal - for those of you playing along at home, I have used a different nail polish without repeating every time I paint my nails or toes since January 1 thanks to an idea from Steph @ Insert Classy Here. My collection is large but I'm nearing the end. FINALLY freaking finished. It took me a year to get through these, only not using my polish twice (when I got gel manicures for trips). And I culled a lot. 

6. Outdoors:
       a) Clean old cushions and store. MFD took care of this. 
       b) Winterize flower beds. Done, quite late (December 5), but done nonetheless
       c) Yard cleanup/winterization. I did my part December 5, MFD did his the week following. Again, late, but finished. 

7. Check out the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk. Fail. I will attempt this again in the spring. 

8. Gather whatever gear I need for Africa trip and make appointments for shots. I bought sun protective long sleeves for me & MFD for safari, as well as hats and scarves with anti-bug and anti-sun stuff. We have pants that will do. I got my hepatitis A shot. Typhoid is next. I need to get the prescriptions at the pharmacy too. 

9. Get miles situation straightened out and book flights for New Orleans using miles. Done November 6. 

10. Bake french bread. Fail again. I think this is a three time goal list fail? 

11. Wish The Boss a happy 66th birthday today. (dunzo)

Did you make any fall goals? How did you do?

  1. You did amazing! My fall goals were such a fail, I can't even remember what they were. Good for you.

  2. Great job! Especially on the sanding and painting ! I would eat a whole loaf of hot homemade bread with tons of BUTTER!
    Love. Your. Momma.

  3. Thank you for the nailpolish idea! I think I'm going to try that in 2016. I have an insane amount of nailpolishes.

  4. haha I'm always up early on Fridays too, which is actually the one day a week where I don't have to be in the office until an hour later. Oh, life. Impressed you got through the polish!!

  5. Good call getting up early on Fridays. I'm with you... bc it's almost the weekend, it's less painful, lol

  6. You did awesome! I still need to do my last rake of the season. Hopefully when i am off the rest of the year. The nail polish goal was a hard one so congrats on finishing.

  7. good job on most of your goals! i think your nail polish goal was fabulous, such a good idea. i need to do something like that with books.. read all my TBR books before buying any more or repeating lol.
    mm french bread. that would be so good. one day i want to try and make bread. not sure what kind yet, but just bread.

  8. Ughhhhhhhhhh your productivity is half motivating me and half making me feel like a lazy POS. I have so many things I plan to do in the upcoming year... THEY'RE HAPPENING! I *did* however, go to the top of the Empire State Bldg days after I wrote a blog post about how I'd never been. So, win? Kudos to you!

  9. You did an awesome job on your list! Even in his 60s The Boss is still lookin fine as ever.

  10. I love that you made it through your nail polish. I have two colors left and I don't really like them - so I think they are going away. I've seriously narrowed down the list and tried Jamberry for my first time. I'd call that a win :)

    I am so excited to read about your upcoming trip!!

  11. Great job with your goals! You are awesome for using your nail polishes! I need to do that myself!
