February 2018 Goals/'To-Do' List!

Looking back at January, I can say that overall it was a success.   We didn’t get everything done on my ‘to-do’ list but that’s okay, we’ll just carryover the unfinished items into February.    (You can read January’s ‘to-do’ list HERE and see how I did.)

(The picture is of some of the valentine treats I made for the little ones in my life Valentine's Day 2017.)

Having a ‘to-do’ list for January has helped me to stay mindful and purposeful in working towards my overall 2018 goals.  It has helped me to realize that progress is being made even if it seems at times that it’s not.  

So now it’s ‘goodbye January goals’ and ‘hello February goals’ ….  “February goals, I’ve got you in my sights!!”

Here’s my February ‘to-do’ List … otherwise known as breaking down my 2018 goals into monthly doable steps!

  1. Hey great goals, I love the carry overs... I have quite a few of those myself:)

    1. Out My Window, carryovers are just a part of the way I achieve my goals. Sometimes you just can't get everything you want to do done so you just carry them over!!!

  2. Dear Patsy,
    I am happy to see you will keep blogging daily! I know that must take a lot of time but I am really enjoying reading your posts every day.
    I am excited about January because we met so many of our goals! We stayed within our budget and managed to save a lot. I have been sticking with menu planning and Colton has been sticking to his diet. I want February to be just as good. I also have a few carry overs from last month but I got so much accomplished that I'm not going to beat myself up about what didn't get done.
    Thank you for all the encouragement, Patsy! I'm looking forward to following along!
    Love, Kelsey

    1. Kelsey, yeah for you and your attitude!!! I'm not beating myself up over what I didn't get done either, I'm just carrying them over and will work on them this month. The goal is to have my 2018 goals accomplished by the end of 2018, that gives me lots of flexibility on how and when I get them done! You go girl!

  3. Love the Valentine treats you made for the little ones in your life. Is that a Pinterest find? Nancy

    1. Cozy Thyme Cottage, the pupply dog valentine is a Pinterest find, but the rest of it I made and pulled together myself. When I saw the puppy dog fabric at the fabric store I knew I wanted to do something with it so that was the seed that produced the final product.

  4. Thank you Patsy. They are darling! Nancy
