Café con Leslie: February Goals

February Goals -
Borrowing an idea from Dishwater Dreams, I'm going to start sharing my monthly goals with the hope that by sharing them with all of you, I'll get around to actually crossing them off my list.

February Goals:

Work: The first thing on my list of things to do this month is to finally finish the big project I've been working on, that's taken me longer than I had planned due to a few minor setbacks and circumstances beyond my control.

Home: The first (and probably hardest) thing will be getting used to not having Hope around all day. She's finally returning to school tomorrow after her long 2-month winter vacation. (High School students in Mexico have all the luck!)

Laundry is always on my to-do list. This month I'm hoping to finally conquer my never-ending battle with Mt. Washmore, even if it's only temporary.

Another household project this month is to make my bedroom, which is my favorite room in my house right now, a little prettier. This month I want to find some pretty artwork to hang on the walls so they don't look so bare and a lamp for my nightstand.

Love: Being that it is February, el mes del amor (the month of love), I want to go out on a romatice date with Hubby. I can't remember the last time we went out to eat, just the two of us.

Family: Speaking of dates, something I started doing back in December, but didn't do in January, was to take each of the kiddies out on a special treat date with just me be it to go play in the park or out for coffee, ice cream, nachos, or churros.

I also think it's time to bring back our weekly family movie nights. Since moving our TV to my father-in-law's house, our movie nights have been few and far between.

Blogs: In keeping with my New Year's Resolution to post regularly on both this blog and my Cocina blog,  my goal this month is to post 3 times per week, per blog. If I'm able to post more, cool! If not, that's okay too.

Vlogs: I finally got around to posting the first video to my new YouTube channel. My goal this month is to post at least 2 more What's for Dinner? videos and 1 video about something else. If you have any suggestions for videos you'd like to see, let me know in the comments.  

Books: I used to pride myself on reading at least one book per week, but in January that just didn't happen. I spent the whole month trying to read one book and I just couldn't get through it. It's not that it was a particularly horribly written book, I think maybe this just wasn't the right time for me to try reading it. I hate giving up on a book, but sometimes you just have to. Anyway, my goal this month is to read atleast 2 books.

Do you have any goals for this month?


  1. Yay! You did vlog. :) Happy to have connected through SITS today! Good luck with your goals this month.

  2. Hola de SITS Comment Luv y mucho gusto, Leslie! Mis objectivos este mes son ganar mas dinero y aprender Google+.

    Ok, I'm done speaking Spanish. I grew up near Juarez in southern NM and though my family speaks Spanish, I could use some work. Looking forward to learning more about you!

  3. Hope your February is going as you hoped it would!

  4. I love this idea of setting monthly goals and breaking it down in categories! I know I could use this idea for myself because I usually set wild goals every month but never have structure to the areas of my life in them. Have fun on your special date night! And thank you for sharing.

  5. Nice goals! I am going to list mine monthly by category too. #SITSBlogging

  6. I know for me sharing my goals does help me stay accountable. Thanks for sharing yours. #SITSblogging
