March is here!  Not to complain, but I’m happy to see February go.  Not that anything bad happened, it was just a blah month.  I kept feeling like I was getting a lot done, but every time I looked back on my wishes for February I realized I hadn’t accomplished anything.  Oh well. I may not have done much work on my main goals, but I still accomplished a lot (or at least that’s what I’m telling myself).

I might have not achieved many of my personal goals, but I saw lots of accomplishments in February with Something Winnderful.  We launched Love It Forward, and people actually linked up!  (The second one is tomorrow and you have a week to link up!)  The blog also continued to meet my goal of growing by at least 20% in every aspect.  I managed to write a business plan and shared how I tripled my blog views in a month.  I also committed to #100HappyDays and came to terms with my passion not being my career.  Hopefully this month leads to more accomplishments!

March Wishes


  • Continue to put $100+ towards debt and savings.
  • No more fast food.  For real this time.
  • Suck it up and buy a gym membership.  I’m lying to myself when I say I’ll go to my apartment’s gym or workout at home.
  • Get the wedding invitations sent, rehearsal dinner booked, and groomsmen’s suits picked out.
  • Keep growing the blog and get a serious start on a new side project.

I failed at not eating fast food.  Oops.  At least I did manage to get a gym membership through LivingSocial and it has been really great.  I didn’t get the invitations sent, but they are 95% done.  I didn’t book the rehearsal dinner, but I passed the task back to my future mother in law, who’s responsibility it should have been anyways.  I finally don’t have to keep stressing out about it anymore and I already feel better about it.


  • Create a budget and stick to it.
  • Meal plan.  I hate cooking and meal planning, but not doing so is what leads to all my fast food purchases.
  • Go to the gym 3 times a week.  I like going to the gym, so I should be able to do this.
  • Get invitations sent and visit home to meet with various people.  The to do list just never ends.
  • Keep on keeping on with the blog.

One last thing!

  • Hi! I’m visiting from the link-up! Sounds like you are in full wedding planning mode! That’s so exciting. I had so much fun planning my own wedding. Good luck with all your goals! Now I’m off to explore your cute blog a little more. 🙂

    • SomethingWinnderful

      Thanks Emily! I’m so glad you enjoyed my blog! I wouldn’t call wedding planning “fun” but I’m looking forward to the big day. Thank you for all your kind words about Something Winnderful!

  • hi katie! good luck with your goals this week! i remember wedding invites being a HUGE pain, it feels SO good when they’re done though!

    • SomethingWinnderful

      I feel like the invitations are never going to end. Most have been sent out, so I do feel a bit relieved, there are just several last minute invites coming from Carl’s side of the family. I read about your wedding and am so jealous of how laid back it was. If I could go back to the beginning I would insist on a much simpler event than what we’ve got going on.

  • I also have budgeting on my goals for the month! Also, I can’t wait to be on your sidebar! 🙂

    • SomethingWinnderful

      Woo you’re finally on the sidebar!! Your budgeting looks much more planned out than mine, definitely need to step up my game if I’m going to be successful. Good luck with your budgeting!

  • I hate meal planning too. I usually try to keep some healthy leftovers in my fridge. When I’m in a pinch, I can grab that instead of grabbing fast food. Soup, chili, and crockpot meals are GREAT for this!
