September Happenings {Monthly Wrap-Up}

Hello friends! Today I’m excited to be back with my usual monthly wrap up posts!

-The Goals From Last Month-

Let’s see how I did…

As usual, I’ll be writing in green if I succeeded and red if I failed.

  • Finish Writing My Novel. (unfortunately not, I’ve kinda put writing on the back burner for a minute…)
  • Start working on a business project idea. (YESSS. (the reason that writing is on the back burner. XD) I’m actually announcing it in just a few days, October 1 to be exact. πŸ˜€
  • Exercise 6 days a week. (mostly)
  • Hopefully get something. I can’t say what yet, just something. I’ll tell you if it ends up happening. IT HAPPENED!!!!!!! MY SISTER GOT A PUPPY! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I’m planning a post sometime soon!
  • Go see Tobymac and Hollyn and Crowder. (sort of)
  • Take a 5 second video clip every day. (I forgot, whoops)
  • Keep up with school. (mostly)
  • Read 5 books, not just magazines. (whoops. I do have some more coming at the library though!)
  • Publish 12 blog posts. (I published a lame five. ugh.)

Well I didn’t do to bad. Unfortunately I accomplished the easier goals, but not the really important and necessary ones. 😦

-What I Did Do-

  • Worked really hard on my business, which I’m super excited about.
  • Was pretty productive.
  • This month was literally super crazy busy for me. Unfortunately a close family friend passed away this past month and I was in the funeral, so that was something to prepare for and we also visited my grandma a lot this month as well.
  • I feel like I learned a lot this month, not just with school, but some pretty important life stuff as well.
  • Speaking of school, I kept up with that as well! πŸ™‚
  • I made some art and started making some ATC’s again, which as we all know is tons of fun and relaxing! πŸ˜€

And that’s pretty much it. Nothing to exciting actually. XD

-Posts From This Month-

Ugh, I’m so frustrated with how much I posted this month. Things seemed to have slowed down a bit though, so for October I’m going to try to stay on a schedule, which so far seems to be working.

Wrapping up August!

The good thing is that most of the posts I did post this month I worked really hard on, and was happy with how they came out! πŸ˜‰


There were a lot of pretty sunsets this month. Unfortunately I only captured one, but I love how the photos turned out! πŸ™‚

Ok, here’s like the only picture that I have of my sister’s new puppy Leo. Isn’t he just adorable? I’ll hopefully be posting more pictures soon. Btw. Leo is a standard Aussiedoodle, which means that his mother is an Australian Shepard and that his father is a poodle.

Here’s a picture of me actually, (yes I did take it, on self timer πŸ˜‰ ) last Sunday morning. I love that it’s getting cooler, and that it was actually cool enough to wear boots to church. Isn’t that awesome? XD

Next up is something interesting (at least I think so) My dad found this butterfly on our car, and sadly it was dead. But happily (for me at least) the butterfly was still perfectly intact, so I could take pic’s of it. Here are a few:




Which angle was your favorite?

-Favorites From This Month-

I actually didn’t buy that much stuff this month, which is almost a total shocker. XD

Favorite Songs:

So since I didn’t really buy anything interesting, I’ll be featuring some of my favorite songs from this month! πŸ™‚

This is actually Lauren Daigle’s new album Look Up Child. I’m actually listening to it as I write this blog post. XD

A great one by TobyMac ^

I like this really neat and unique one from King and Country!

I always will wonder how many instruments that those guys can play XD At the concert I went to, they really did throw confetti, it was cool! πŸ˜€

Favorite Posts From Around The Blogosphere:

-Looking Into October-


  • Launch my new business.
  • List 2-3 new products per week.
  • Write 10 posts.
  • Read 5 books.
  • Finish my novel.
  • Exercise and wake up early 6 days a week.
  • Keep up with school
  • Take at least 100 good pictures.
  • Write some letters.

Well that’s a wrap! October is one of my favorite months, and I’m really hoping that this next month will bring some beautiful weather, pleasant days, and productivity!

    1. Thank you so much! I got the shirt from JCPenny, the pants from Old Navy (a long time ago. XD) and I’m not sure where I got the shoes from!
      The background for the butterfly was just a pillow actually. XD
