Here are my goals for the month of December!

  1. Decorate for Christmas.
  2. Fully clean up / clean out the attached garage.
  3. Enjoy several holiday parties!
  4. Donate blood.
  5. Create our budget for 2017.
  6. Help either a child or a family have a good Christmas.
  7. See Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!
  8. Make peppermint bark.

Here’s the breakdown:

Decorate for Christmas.

  • We just bought our first Christmas tree! We’re excited to set it up in our living room and decorate it!
  • Red and green are so festive!

Fully clean up / clean out the attached garage.

  • We cleared out two of the end tables last weekend, so one whole wall is clean now!
  • We plan to go through boxes and containers a little bit every weekend!

Enjoy several holiday parties!

  • Amanda and Dan’s annual gathering is this weekend.
  • Al’s company holiday party is next weekend!
  • At the end of the month, we celebrate New Year’s and Kathryn’s birthday!

Donate blood.

  • I’m trying again this weekend!

Create our budget for 2017.

  • We started a spreadsheet in July, and we need to fill it out for the rest of 2016, and then create a new worksheet for next year.

Help either a child or a family have a good Christmas.

  • Having been raised in a church that has participated with Angel Tree, Salvation Army stockings, and Operation Christmas Child, I always try to do something extra in the month of December.
  • I’ve already volunteered to be a Christmas elf to help a college friend help a family she knows, but I want to do a little bit more than that.

See Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!

  • This has been the most anticipated movie for us this year!
  • This is one that we are going to see multiple times!

Make peppermint bark.

  • I discovered this a few years ago, and it’s super easy to make!
  • I love peppermint during the holidays. Plus, it has white chocolate! Yum!

That’s all I have for December! I can’t believe it’s the last month of 2016!!

Do you have any goals for December?

Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
