Hello December

Earlier this week, I posted my November goals and some fun snapshots. I typically post my goals for the previous and present months together, but the posts get a bit wordy, so I'll try breaking them up this month.  Here are my - and our (Team Wiggins!) - goals for December.

Elena's Goals

1. Continue working on doing a weekly meal plan & prepare 4 meals per week.

2. Try two new recipes from cookbooks we own (we have a bunch that have gone untouched).

3. Send Christmas & wedding thank you cards 

4. Read 4 books (currently reading You & Me Forever, Narnia: The Silver Chair, 7 Men, and The Inner Life

5. Practice selah moments by pausing and praising God throughout the busyness of the Christmas season.

6. Join a local buy-sell-trade Facebook group and try to sell a few things 

7. Research local community writing classes / find online resources to improve writing

8.  Go through She Reads Truth's advent study, Advent: Born Is The King and memorize the Isaiah 9:6-7 together with the other She's doing the study. 

9. Analyze results for survey (one) and send out survey (two). A bit vague for now, but more info on this soon.

10. Finish & send paperwork to get my name changed and to get my Texas ARNP license.

11. Blogging goals: 1)Review 2015's favorite memories and posts; 2) join atleast two different link-ups, The Circle and #Collaboreads).

12. Health Goals: Workout 2x/week (restart jogging) and eat atleast one home-made meal during the weekdays. 

Team Wiggins' Goals

1. Finish reading and discussing You & Me Forever (by Francis and Lisa Chan)

2. Write to our Compassion children we each sponsor

3. Discuss budgeting, loan repayment, and our giving to church and ministries. 

4. Continue journaling things we are thankful for throughout December to help keep us focused on God's blessings through the Christmas hustle and bustle.

5. Enjoy time with family and friends in Texas (various Christmas parties coming up!), but carve out time for just us as well. I am hoping to visit San Antonio's Riverwalk (all decked out in Christmas lights) and the adorable town of Gruene (with all it's old-town charm and holiday events).


What are some of your goals for December?

    1. Yes they are! Are you currently going through the advent study? It is remarkable!


I love to hear your thoughts!
