November felt like a long month, but it was full of excitement!

Here’s the link to my November Goals post:


Here we go!

  1. Celebrate our second wedding anniversary! — Accomplished!
  2. Keep our kitchen table clean. — Did not accomplish.
  3. Write some snail mail! — Did not accomplish.
  4. Start organizing my “Lady Lounge.” — Accomplished!
  5. Enjoy Thanksgiving! — Accomplished!

Here’s the breakdown!

Celebrate our second wedding anniversary! — Accomplished!

  • We celebrated our anniversary with a wonderful dinner at River Stone Chophouse in Suffolk. Al had their biggest steak, and I enjoyed their Colorado Lamb Chops. Everything we ate was fabulous. We didn’t have room for dessert, but we will be returning. They just started brunch service on Sundays, too!

Keep our kitchen table clean. — Did not accomplish.

  • I de-cluttered some of our old mail, but I don’t feel satisfied with my progress.

Write some snail mail! — Did not accomplish.

  • This didn’t happen. I even forgot to mail several birthday cards!

Start organizing my “Lady Lounge.” — Accomplished!

  • Every weekend, piece by piece, I’ve hauled boxes from the garage and started organizing. My biggest success has been my bookshelf. I’ve already filled three boxes of books and DVDs to donate to the local library!

Enjoy Thanksgiving! — Accomplished!

  • We took nearly a week off of work, and headed to the farm. Al’s mom fed us so well every single day!
  • We spent Thanksgiving Day with about 40 members of the Chambers family (Al’s mom side). We drove about 2 1/2 hours toward the mountains. There were four tables full of food, and one full table of desserts. Delicious!
  • When we weren’t eating, we relaxed. We went on several drives through the countryside, built a bonfire, and saw the International Space Station fly by!
  • We saw Justice League with Al’s dad. It was a good movie!
  • We also went bowling, and played about 20 rounds of UNO over two different nights.
  • It was so nice to get away!

Final Thoughts:

  • I was able to put Accomplished next to three out of five goals: Yippee!
  • The two goals that I did not accomplish: It was slightly disappointing, but I just need to dedicate more time and effort to these.

What about you? Did you have any goals for the month of November?

Come back tomorrow to see my December Goals!

Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂

  1. Thanks for the reminder. You have also given me some further ideas as to how I should relate explaining achieving some of mine each month.
    A mentor put me onto Brendan Burchard on YouTube

  2. I think the ones you didn’t quite accomplish are the ones that require a lot of time & consideration. I know you’ll get them done, but it takes time! Rome wasn’t built in a day – neither is a well-organized house! 🙂

    Did you see the new Thor movie?

    I thought Justice League was OK, but there was a lot of explanation. I appreciated that, but I didn’t see Batman vs. Superman, so I feel like I missed a pretty big part of the story, y’know?

    • Thank you so much! You’re so sweet.

      We did see Thor: Ragnarok. I liked it! I thought it was really funny, and the music was awesome.

      I hear you. Batman v Superman was okay, but not great. Wonder Woman has been my favorite, so far.

      • I compared Thor: Ragnarok to the Justice League. I know I shouldn’t have, but I did. Thor was much faster paced, there weren’t any slow parts, & a lot less explanation. I understand what was going on in the Justice League – attempting to explain for people who haven’t seen the other movies, but I guess Marvel can kinda just assume everyone has seen the others; they were that popular!

        Like I said, I haven’t seen Batman vs. Superman (but, I’ll admit, Justice League got me sorta interested). However, Wonder Woman is still tops for me!
