Making Marriage & Relationship Goals (Link-up!)

Sabra GilbertComment
Ever heard of Amberly's blog, A Prioritized Marriage? She has a wonderful link up on the first Monday of every month that focusing on creating a marriage or relationship goal for the month! It can be something fun, something serious, or something in between as long as it involves putting your relationship foremost and center.
Love & marriage take a lot of upkeep and can't just be expected to be fine on its own. I'm so excited to be a co-host for this link up today and I hope that you guys will join me!
Simeon and my goal for this next month is to make the moments that we have together actually count! With school & work, we don't actually get to see each other that often. Actually, just this past weekend we didn't even get to see each other with me going to a Navigator confrence and Simeon gone for an overnight debate tournament! We only get a few stolen moments together a day and I plan to make it count!
      This means getting off the computer, putting the books away, and turning off the shows when Simeon is around. It is so easy to get caught up in whatever you are doing and forget that you only get so much time with the person that you love and that it should be a priority. Make sure to actually talk instead of watching a show together. Know how the other person's day went and talk more about our future and know whats going on together.
      Simeon and I have been striving to have a bi-weekly date night, but it always seems like its a rushed night. We decide at last minute and then just do something like going out to eat. which leads to a lot of fun face time, but doing it the same all the time kind of ruins the fun. I want to spend some time trying to make a few extremely special date nights. SImeon is in charge of Valentine's Day date, but I wanna plan a fun dinner & Wii game night that would be super special for us.

Choose Your Own Adventure: Simplify

Sabra GilbertComment

Not Entirely Perfect

Today, I'm joining a new Monthly link up!! I love the idea about how this is link up is about everyone creating a goal list around a common theme. This month is simplify (pretty ironic for the Christmas season!).

1| Wrap up the semester. - I plan to enjoy my Christmas break without thinking about anything school related until a week before school starts again.

2| Focus on Recreating this blog into a space that I'm proud of. - There are going to be a lot of changes around here. Hopefully, I will be getting a true set schedule going on, new blog design, new offerings, and working on truely engaging my sponsors and readers.

3| When I'm with family, technology doesn't exsist. - No phones. No laptops. No tablets.

The only things that I want to focus on this month (after finals wrap up) is family and creating.

Summer Goals 2014 #1

Sabra GilbertComment
I have bad news guys. . . summer will only last for 2 more months!! Now if you are like me, you spent the entire  non-summer year saying things like "I'll have time in the summer." or "I'll save that project for summer." Well, summer always seems to come and go without me actually finishing half of the things that I waited for summer to do anyway! Not this year! This year I'm stating my goals on this blog, and I want you to join me! This week is all about stating what you want to accomplish. I've put all of mine onto a Pintrest board (cause isn't Pintrest the main inspiration of half the things that you want to do anyway?), but feel free to write a blog post, or even a Facebook post. Just get your goals out there!! Link them up here and cheer other people on! Try to get at least one thing done every week!! Then write or show a picture of something you have done, and link it back here every Monday!!

Here is my Pintrest board!

Here is the link-up button!

What have I been up to?

Sabra GilbertComment

Summer can be a time of oppertunity, or it can be a time that flys by and gets wasted. I'm determined not to let this summer get away from me. how is it already almost July! There are so many things that I want to do and that I want to accomplish so I have made a Summer 2014 Goals Pintrest board! But you can dream and wish all you want, but until you tell people about it and have someone keep you accountable, it's still not going to happen. While I also have Simeon, I want to share my goals with you and hopefully, you'll start your own summer goals as well.

It will be a super fun first link up!! So get your pintrest board in order! And come back here on Monday June 30th to link up: directly to your Pintrest Board, your blog, or even both!!

I'm really excited to be hosting my first link up, I hope you all enjoy it!
