Family + Faith, Motherhood

Fourth Quarter Goals 

I cannot believe a year ago we found out about Eli’s impending arrival and now he’s here and almost three months old. Time goes by 900x faster when you have children. I hate it. 


We have had a busy year, learning, growing and settling in with our new family. It’s been so wonderful. A lot of memories were made and I am so thankful. With each new year comes growth…

Here is a quick roundup of things I would love to get done before the end of the year…

  • Budget Re-vamp
  • Workout Routine
  • Marketing
  • Blog Schedule
  • House Projects
  • De-clutter


Budget: Prior to Eli we had a really great cash only spending that seriously saved us a TON. We sort of fell of the wagon after his arrival while we adapted (aka: tried to survive) to our new life and less sleep. Now that we have a good routine I’d love to plan our meals better and prepare better for those random expenses that come up. Also, since I know how much money it costs to have two kids, some things need to change… haha!

Workout Routine: We have plans to set up a home gym after the new year but I seriously need to figure out where I can squeeze in a quick run or a good 30 minute workout. The day gets away from me but I know I have the time somewhere.

Marketing Grace + Ford: I really want to connect with some bloggers/influencers and help get the Grace + Ford brand out there. [P.S. If you are a blogger/influencer and are interested in working with Grace + Ford, email me!]

Blog Schedule: I absolutely love writing and it’s very therapeutic for me so I definitely need to sit down and write out a schedule that works for me.

Home Projects: We will have lived in this house for 1 year in January. It’s literally perfect but we do have a few big-ish projects we want to complete! I want to plan these out and budget for them. Yes, a pool would be great but I don’t foresee that happening in 2018. *cries* haha.

De-Clutter Before The New Year: I will probably wait to do this after Christmas while we clean out toys and things like that. If we haven’t touched it since we have lived here it’s probably safe to get rid of it, riiiight????

2017 was a year for the books. I’ll do a post dedicated to this wonderful year closer to the end but just know, it’ll be written with lots of tears! What are your goals for the end of the year? Any tips to help me with mine?!
XO, Jess
