Hopes & Plans [Monthly Goals]

Welcome to the "Hopes & Plans" link up! Any hopeful or goal-oriented post is welcome! It can be your life's dreams, aspirations, monthly goals or simply your chore list. Share with us! I hope for this to be a place where we can come to be inspired and motivated by the things other people have in the works. The possibilities are endless! Most things in life begin by first having a hope and then some kind of plan.

Before we jump into my hopes & plans for February, let's take a look back at last week...
|| Finalize Mallory's swim lessons for February. || Done! So excited to see those little chubby thighs in her swimsuit.

|| Schedule my cancer scans. || Ugh, yessss. They say it gets less nerve wracking...lies! My scans are actually scheduled for one day after my cancerversary. Bad ju ju? Hope not!

|| Take Mallory to story time at the library. || Yep! She is such a riot! Doesn't listen to a single word the librarian sings or reads, just runs off doing Mallory things. ;) 


|| Sign up for a post pregnancy race. || No, I didn't actually sign up for a race. Doesn't this one look fun?! (I know that's not actually a race, but...)

This Month's Hopes & Plans ::

one || Get outside more. We have definitely fallen victim to this Alaskan winter. There are plenty of excuses : it's really freaking cold, there's no snow, Kyle can't go more than two hours away, Kyle has to have cell service, mama is a pregnant whale, the list goes on. The bottom line is we are going to kill each other these next few months if we don't start breaking out of the house!

two || Enjoy swim lessons with Mallory. I'm starting to realize that our days of just mama and Mal are numbered. I hope to really be present and savor these last couple of months together as just us girls. 

three || Have clear scans. This is definitely a hope! Call me pessimistic (really I'm just trying to protect myself and keep it real) but I like to prepare for the worst and be pleasantly surprised by the best. I'm so fortunate to be able to celebrate my 6th cancerversary and pray that we can continue in this direction. [You can read more about my cancer journey here.] 

four || Continue preparing for baby Woody. While we have a lot of the things from our list, we certainly don't have everything. If our son is anything like our daughter, we are a mere ten weeks away from his birthday!! 

five || Visit Alyeska. Kyle and I have been rethinking our original Valentine's Day plan to spend $50 on each other and cook a nice dinner at home. Why not spend that same amount of money on overnight stay at the Alyeska resort?! We are thinking of it as a babymoon....with Mallory. Ha!

That about does it! 

What are your goals for February?
