March Goals

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

After a wonderful, busy February.. I'm hoping for a slower March. My goals this month are more of just a list of things that will happen or really need to happen, haha. We're entering the last stretch of preparing for our sweet baby boy and can't wait to meet him. It's hard not to daydream about it all the time. Even in the middle of this crazy season of anticipation, I'm still really passionate about watering the close relationships we're blessed to have. My desire for this month is to say "no" to things that don't matter and "yes" to rest, quality time with Ben, and intentional steps to feel more prepared for when we bring Sweet Baby Strader home. We've been so humbled by the kindness of people celebrating our first two baby showers with us. Showers are such an interesting thing because sometimes it feels weird to be the "VIP" of the event, and it just seems impossible to adequately communicate your gratitude. If anyone has any tips on this, send them my way in time for our last two celebrations. :)

February Goals
Make a list of people I want to reconnect with crossing this off not because it was completed, but because I realized this is not the right season for this goal 
Finish decluttering all of my entertaining supplies
Make a prayer list for Sweet Baby Strader
Take a big group of goodies (stockings included) to get monogrammed
get my maternity photos dress hemmed
celebrate Sweet Baby Strader at my first two baby showers (one for family & one in our hometown)
Travel to Austin to attend IF: Gathering with some sweet friends
Travel to Nashville to see some of our favorite people, Collin & the Teasley family!
Host a bridal shower for my friend Lyndsey
wrap up all my shower hostess gifts
Style the shelves in the nursery

March Goals

Purchase a newborn hat for #SweetBabyStrader

What do y'all have planned for this month? The first of the month is always one of my favorite days to catch up on reading blogs.. I just love reading everyone's goals!


  1. Just a warning! I just welcomed my first baby 3 weeks ago and I bought some cute new pajamas for the hospital too! I never wore them though because I didn't want them to get ruined (I won't go into detail but recovery can be messy)! Just make sure pack some clothes you don't mind possibly ruining.

  2. I want to know more about your photo session!!! Already dying to see these photos!

  3. Getting closer!!! Things are getting real :)

  4. These are such great goals! I've got to get my monthly goals list together haha.

  5. You've inspired me and for the first time I've written goals by month like this. I'm excited!
