Oh, September - how I love you, so!  This is the month of Fall - Autumn air, pumpkin lattes, apple cider, changing leaves...  Oh, wait, I live in California, which means it's still going to be pretty damn hot, but you can bet yer ass I'll be partaking in most of these Fall goodies way ahead of the schedule.  Also, it's my birthday month, so I can.  So there.

1.  This month is all mine - me, me, me.  So first off, is getting back to me.  Starting this month, I'll be keeping a weekly record of how I did with taking care of my body throughout the week (food/workouts/weight), & sharing it with my friend Vivs.  We'll be helping each other get out of our annual end of Summer slump.

2.  I really want to dedicate more time to this blog, so I'm making it a goal to blog on here at least four times a week.  I'll at least have Music Monday going, Wednesday's Wisdom, the Friday accountability posts that I haven't named yet, & Linkage on Saturdays.

3.  Something I really need to work on is being more appreciative, thankful, grateful - whatever you want to call it, I need to appreciate what I have, & enjoy life for everything it is - good & bad.

4.  Starting this month, I'll also be on a nice road to moving out.  I've set up my car payment so that I'm paying almost $100 more a month, in order to get rid of the debt within the next year or so.  Hopefully by January 2014, I can think about moving out with my honey & our animals!

5.  This is going to be a hard one, but even though this is my month, I decided that I am NOT going to buy myself anything that I don't need.  That includes food, gas, toiletries - no frivolous spending.

6.  One goal that's a bit more on the selfish side is that I WILL have a birthday party this year.  I don't care if it's just me & Jonathan - there WILL be decorations, champagne, champagne cupcakes, & golden balloons everywhere, I promise you.  (Turbo might get some bling, too).

7.  Lastly, I'd like to make more time for Turbo.  I might even make myself take a photo of him to post on here once a week, possibly.  Don't think I wont...  I've just been so busy lately, & I feel like he really needs more of my lovin on the daily.

I hope you all have an amazing September, & Autumnal Equinox!  Oh, & just for fun, here are three of my favorite Fall Signature Cocktails, enjoy!


  1. Sounds like you've got some great September goals planned! I think this is a great idea to keep reminding yourself to be on top of things, but also to focus on those little things you've always been meaning to do!

    Best of luck!

  2. cal, i think these are all great goals! it's always so nice to see goals on blogs that are real and attainable (because you know how some bloggers live in fantasy land). good luck with all of them; i wish i was there to share the birthday party goal with you!

  3. happy birthday month girlie!!! im thinking that bday celebration needs to be a little bigger than the 3 of you... just sayin! ;) xo
