It’s May 1st! Time to share my May Goals.
But first, I have something very important to say…
- Thank you to everyone who read or shared or commented on any/all of my March of Dimes and March for Babies posts. There were a ton.
- Thank you to everyone that donated on behalf of our team. Your generosity is inspiring. We raised over $3000!!!!
- Thank you to everyone that participated in the auction. There were such amazing items up to bid on.
- Thank you to everyone who helped with our t-shirts. From our fabulous designer, Ink Designs, to our awesome sponsors, Team Hoffmann, Golden Sage Homemade, Andersen Creative, and The Meal Mobile.
- And a HUGE thank you to everyone that came out to support us at the walk. It was cold, and it was gloomy, but the love we felt from all of you made it all worth it.
So, before we get to May goals, let’s take a look back at how April went:
1.Continue to fund-raise and meet our Goal for the March of Dimes March for Babies We DID it!!!!!!!!!! It happened at the very last-minute, but we raised over our goal of $3000!
2.Go on a date night Yes! In addition to my husband’s birthday, we also went out to a good friend’s 40th birthday party. Good times!
3.Cut back on sugar in preparation for healthier eating in May (I’m thinking I might try the Whole 30) I have been trying, but I’ve still been having some sugar and chocolate. I did get my library books, so I can read all about the Whole 30.
4.Really work on the Family Changes I wrote about in this post We’re still working on less food waste, more help cleaning up, and less technology. We’re doing pretty good with more movement.
All in all, I’d say April went in the right direction. We’ve still got work to do, but that was to be expected.
1.Get at least one or two things crossed off my 30 before 40 list Only 4 months left!
2.Get our summer plans organized We have one trip planned and a few activities, but I need to get a few more things scheduled
3.Get some spring cleaning done I have got a major laundry back-up, and also need to get rid of a lot of clothes that the boys have outgrown
4.Get some writing done I’ve been doing a lot of last-minute posts, and it’s a little stressful. I’d like to sit down, plan out my blog, plan out my guest posts, and get it done!
That will definitely take me all of May to get done, and then some. Did you set goals for the month?
Delaine Myles says
Great goals to aspire to. I want to set out my goals like this each month but I always feel I won’t stick to them. Hopefully this will help to do it.
Chantal Steele says
Nice goals! I’m trying to cut back on sugar too, it can be so hard! Good luck this month!
Jazmine Brown says
Congrats on your April goals! Raising money for a fundraiser is very inspirational. I think it’s great that you made it a family event. You have some aspiring goals for this month too. #3 & #4 are something I’m trying to work on. I’m trying my best to automate social media & blog post I’ve written. Good luck on your monthly goals.
P.S. If you’re interested I’m co-hosting a monthly aspirations linkup today on my blog fairylightsanddreams.com I’d love if you join and share your post. 🙂
Congrats on raising money for March of Dimes! Also, your April sounds like it went really well. I’m sure May will go great too! I can’t wait to hear updates!

It is great that you reached $3000! That is awesome. It is great to have goals in the future.
You can for sure do those things. Spring cleaning is something I need to finish up too!

Laina Turner says
I need to get out of the last minute writing rut myself.
Wow, 3000 is so awesome. Congrats!!!!
Yes to blog post planning. Every month I say I’ll do this and I always put it off only to scramble last minute to write SOMETHING. Must get on that.
Great goals! And congrats on raising so much–your shirts look great!
Love the 30 by 40 concept! I’m inspired! Tracy

Oh lady you killed it in April, and with your fundraising too! Well done, so glad to hear you hit it!!
May is set out for me, absolutely, and I’m working on one of the goals right now but no-one can see it because my site is down for maintenance (that’s one of my business goals for the month!!). Hoping to have it all back up and ironed out this time next week.
Best of luck with your May goals!

Last minute posts are way stressful, I can totally relate. I’m always impressed with your blog though Shann!
