The Berger Bungalow: November Goals + Giveaway!

November Goals + Giveaway!
Posted on:11.01.2015

Is it really November? Time is going by SO fast. I seriously cannot believe that Halloween is already over, that this month means Thanksgiving & next month is Christmas. How crazy?! This time of the year is by far my favorite. I just love the happiness that most people seem to have that isn't shown during other times of the year. I guess maybe it is buying presents, Christmas music, or all of the family time people are getting to have, but I definitely know that holiday cheer is real & I'm soaking it all in! 
If you scroll through this post, it is my typical monthly post on my goals, but I also wanted to include an awesome giveaway that I found for you guys!! Check it out!


October Goals:
1. Go apple picking
So, this was amazing! Ian and I had so much fun driving up to Blue Ridge and trying and picking all of the apples. I'm going to do a post on this soon.
2. Make apple sauce with my grandma.
I'm including this in my apple picking post, but it was amazing!!! Her apple sauce recipe is THE best & I'm so glad I learned how to make it!
3. Make a new friend! 
This was planned, but then I had to change my plans at the last minute.
4. Celebrate Jessica & Ky's engagement! 
Yep! We had so much fun celebrating with them at their engagement party. 
5. Deep clean our kitchen [yes, adding it to the list again]
lol...... BUT i have done a lot of deep cleaning to other rooms!! We have almost finished deep cleaning our living room, hallway & master bedroom!
6. Drink a gallon of water everyday for at least a week [and this one again too!]
Let's be real. I don't think this is ever going to get done. I actually recently heard that it's not even healthy to drink this much water... anyone know if that's true or not? Apparently it can give you charlie horses and it's just not good for your body unless you are also supplementing with Gatorade, or another drink with electrolytes. I need to look up more info on this.
7. Complete my first sponsored post!!!!! [Super excited about this one]
You can find that here. I loved doing this post because it was for such good cause and raised a lot of awareness! 
8. Start thinking about Christmas present ideas for others!!!!! EEEK! 
I've been thinking about Christmas presents nonstop! I cannot wait to start buying gifts for others. Best part of Christmas!


November Goals:

1. Finish 90% of my Christmas shopping
2. Try a barre class. This is on my 101 in 1001 list!
3. Bring doughnuts into work for the kids
4. Make a few soups to freeze and get ingredients for chili x2 for the winter.
5. Get my new planner, organize it and post a review on it! 
6. Visit Mom & Pups for a doggy nail clipping (so stressful)
7. Schedule a deep clean for our house.
8. Drink more tea!
9. Try to go without dessert until Thanksgiving.
10. HOPEFULLY get our wedding video back...ugh maybe it'll happen if I put it on the list.
11. Grab coffee with Joy & Autumn! Let's make it happen, girls. :)
