It's hard to believe it's May already! Only 20 more days till my birthday!!
My goals from last month:
-do a fun photo shoot with friends -- unfortunately, this didn't happen. I will have to see about getting that done this month!
-do this 20 day nature photo challenge (change a few things) -- Jess did this challenge with me and we had lots of fun together! I will blog the photos soon!
-watch/read 1 tutorial on editing -- I actually can't remember when or what I read, but I'm guessing it was helpful. LOL
-try 2 new recipes -- I made: pumpkin spice muffins & banana chocolate chip muffins. I will probably blog one of these recipes soon!
-sew a dress -- I did not make a dress. April seemed a little crazy and it never got done.
-make a caramel mocha milkshake -- I randomly decided to go on a coffee fast, so I didn't make this.
-help mom with meals more often -- I was able to help mom with meals a lot more last month which was lots of fun! Need to keep helping when I can!!
-journal 3-5 times a week -- This is always something I love doing! I've been writing in my prayer journal the most. Trying to spend more and more time with Jesus. :)
-keep room cleaned + organized -- I think this happened! Some days are better then others! :P
-learn a new song on the piano -- I learned Canon in D this month. Still trying to perfect it.
-go a week without coffee -- Yep. Did that.
-send thinking of you/encouragement cards to one friend a week -- I love doing this!! I encourage you to do it as well!
-memorize 4 verses -- I think I memorized two verses last month.
-read Psalm 48 - 57 -- Mmm I love reading through Psalms! One of my favorite books of the Bible.
-read Romans 1 + 2 -- Read those two chapters. I plan on reading two a month until I finish the book.
-post 1 recipe -- I blogged strawberry + cream pudding cookies. Find the recipe HERE.
-blog 1 interview -- I still didn't get this blogged!! I'll see about blogging that this month.
-post 1 guest post -- I had Rebekah from More Radiance do a guest post. Read it HERE.
-paint canvases with Jerusha (try something new/different) -- Like I said, last month seemed a little crazy, so Jerusha + I didn't get together and paint. Maybe we'll do it this month!
-try a new craft -- I didn't try a new craft either. :/
-get a cactus succulent -- I went to a local green house and looked through their succulents (I wanted to bring all of them home with me!!) but wasn't able to find a cactus-looking one that I liked. I decided to try and take cuttings from the succulents I have and see about growing my own!
I decided to set less goals for myself this month since I didn't get some of them done last month.
-sew a dress
-try 2 new recipes
-journal 3-5 times a week
-learn a new song on the cello
