30Dob (Day 30) -April 30DoB Goal Review- {{ PLUS A GIVEAWAY}}

It's the LAST day of our 30 Days of Blogging Series and I am filled with joy and saddness. Joy because I have met A LOT of new friends who I will now continue to stay in check with and keep tabs on but sad because I'm finally getting into the grove of blogging daily and now the prompts won't be there to lead me anymore.

First off I want to say thank you to everyone who has helped participate and co-host. And an extra special thank you to Heather for hosting this wonderful series with me. 

WE'RE HOSTING A GIVEAWAY!! Make sure you keep scrolling all the way to the bottom so you can enter to win some fabulous cash from some of our awesome hosts/co-hosts!!


Is it seriously the end of the month already?! No way! Looking back at my goals at the beginning of the month I'm pleasantly surprised to see how well I did. Let's check in and evaluate them...

1. Log the full thirty miles in thirty days this month!! Well, let's just go ahead and assume I won't run 20.79 miles tomorrow so this one sucked and I didn't hit this goal... I really keep telling myself to do it but I just need to do it! Epic. Fail. (womp, woooomp) 

2. Add FOUR new items to DirtRoadDesigning. So, my shop now has eight items in it! I know I may have hit my four this month but I want to continue to add items to it. Right now they're mostly just business items for a photographer but they could easily be used for other things. My Photo-A-Day template is pretty bomb and I have been using it this month each day so far and I love it. I want to turn my photo a day calendars into a book at the end of the year. This will work perfectly for that idea! 

3. Sell more clutter and donate the rest. I met up with at least five people and even donated a handful of farmer boy's hats to a friend! We're both learning to live even more clutter free and the feeling is so freeing! I was proud of Trav for giving away almost 20+ hats, mostly ones he's received through giveaways or vendors he deals with. I don't get the obsession with needing a hat when you have 30 at home you never wear but I suppose it's like my tennis shoe addiction. I'm still working on getting rid of things but if you're up for it, go check out my for sale items (find the link on the right hand side of the blog) and let me know if you find something you need :)

4. Continue to work on organization. Well, here's the "before" and "after" pictures of our basement from this past weekend. I'd say I get a gold sticker for this one! Not only did I completely clean up our basement but I also tackled a few other areas, I went through our dysfunctional tupperware drawers, I cleaned out the fridge, I organized my desk (finally) and I even attempted to declutter our catch-all drawer. I'd say I'm doing pretty good on this one!

5. Get my 2014 Yearbook Up To Date. Yup, fail. I'm ok with a fail on this one too. Mostly I blame it on my computer and my lack of internet working. Maybe I should just borrow my mom's laptop and internet to upload the pictures and then worry about organizing the yearbooks later. Otherwise, I considered making the book pages completely in photoshop then just uploading the completed pages to my MixBooks account. 

So, overall I completed three out of five. In the mathematics world that's over half so therefore I feel as if I accomplished what I was set out to do! The other two could have been completed but sometimes you just have to give up and know you're working on things. Keep an eye out, I actually might make this goal thing into a monthly link-up for us!!


This last week of the month we're going to "mix it up" and invite ALL  of our co-hosts back for a final thank you to everyone who helped to make this past month a success! It's been an absolute blast getting to know each and every one of you guys! :)
