October Goals

I can't believe October is here!
Ever since I found out I was pregnant in the beginning of the year, I have been counting down the days to October (my due date is October 9).  This month has always been one of my favorites, and I know this year it will definitely be my favorite because our little guy will be here!
 As for my goals this month, I am keeping them pretty simple.  I know I will be adjusting to life with a newborn, and my main priority will be bonding with him and figuring out this whole "mom" thing!
(We are naming our sweet baby boy LINCOLN. How cute is this little banner my friend made?! I just had to keep it up on my bulletin board.)
1. Daily devotional time
This is always a tough one for me.  I am really consistent for a period of time, then I get out of routine.  This month, especially as I start this new chapter in my life as a parent, I want to make quiet time with God my number one priority.
2. Begin Christmas shopping
I know, I know! It's a little early to be talking about Christmas! I feel like the holidays are going to sneak up on me, so i want to get a head start.  Most of my shopping will probably be done online this year. I am looking forward to shopping for everyone... I LOVE finding gifts for my family and friends.
3. Figure out Halloween costumes
I don't know what our plans are going to be for Halloween this year, but I am assuming we will stay home and pass out candy since our baby will only be a few weeks old.  I don't think Landon or I will dress up this year, but of course I need to find Lincoln's first costume!
Hehe! Here's my husband, Landon, on his first Halloween. He was about five months old.

4. Read two new books
Since I am on maternity leave, I am spending more time at home. I love watching tv, and I am currently catching up on Scandal. (Don't tell me what happens, I'm on Season 4!!)  I will probably start a new series on Netflix, but I don't want to spend all my time watching television! So I plan on reading a few books.  My coworker got me the book, Maternity Leave, by Julie Halpern, and I'm LOVING it.  I do want to find another one to read. Any suggestions?

5. Have a date night with Landon
I know it's going to be hard to find time for date nights once baby gets here, so I would like to at least have one more night out before he makes his arrival.
Well, that's it! Happy October to all of you!
