July Goals

It’s time for my monthly goal sharing post! First, a look back at last month:


  1. Continue the wound healing progress.
  2. Have an amazing first month of summer with the kids (and Dave)!
  3. Complete Project Life pages for March and April.
  4. Keep up with blogging even while summering.
  5. Keep up with following blogs even while summering.
  6. Craft something romantic for the Craftbotic June Challenge.
  7. Craft something awesome for my first Blueprint Social Campaign.
  8. Wear some of the outfits I wrote about here.
  9. Get everything ready for the kids to start camp.
  10. Complete at least one thing from my 35 Things list.


  1. Done. I had good news this month when I found out I didn’t need follow up surgery on my wound.
  2. Done. We had a great time in Florida!
  3. Done. View March and April pages here.
  4. Done. I wrote most of my posts ahead of time when traveling and I think it worked out ok.
  5. Done. I used the bloglovin app to follow blogs while I was away. I have to say I did skip over blog posts I wasn’t very interested in and if I had to click over to a blog from the app I wasn’t that likely to do it, unless it was written by a good friend or sounded very interesting!
  6. I ended up using an older post instead of crafting something new.
  7. Done. I definitely wore some of the outfits, plus I finally got some shorts I like a lot so I’m wearing those often too.
  8. Done. Camp is already two weeks down and two to go.
  9. Done – I finished one item – going to Disney World!


  1. Go to the gym and hopefully lose some weight. 
  2. Plan for the 4 weeks between camp and school, henceforth to be known as Mommy Camp.
  3. Order photos from May for Project Life. 
  4. Blog about our trip, as well as other current adventures. 
  5. See the fireworks on July 4. (Yes this is done, but it was definitely a July goal!)
  6. Figure out how to wear makeup.
  7. Prepare for Simon’s birthday party.
  8. Get the kids to do their summer homework.
  9. Buy School Supplies.
  10. Complete at least one thing from my 35 Things list.

Happy July to everyone!

Now makeup is something really hard to figure out. I swear, either you get it or you don't, and I definitely don't get it! You certainly accomplished a lot in June! I was impressed by how you kept the blog posts coming throughout your vacation!

You're doing great!

I'm going to start buying school supplies next week. I see Target already put some for sale.

Excited to see how you do on your makeup goal! I am makeup challenged so I love learning new tricks.

After you figure out the makeup will you teach me? I wear nothing and I feel like I should learn.

I think I completed one of my June goals. Pathetic lol

The makeup one made me laugh, I try the "in" looks and end up looking like a clown,. When I wear it I always go very natural I hate the feeling if having too much on.
