July Goals

Isn't life crazy? I mean how in the world/when did that happen/small world/time slow down crazy. I mean this year is flying by. I can remember when I was little and my grandmother would say every year you get older time will move more quickly so cherish it little girl. She is so right. Life is moving at a blink of an eye and I don't care if that makes me sound like a little old lady. It is true.

So how did I do last month? This part always stings a bit but I did good for once. Weee!
  • {Create more} 25%: And that may be too kind. I have to work on this.
  • {Spend a pool day with my nieces and nephews} 100%: This may be my favorite goal that I accomplished. I spent a few days tucked away in the mountains with my sweet family. We stayed up late, read books, swam, ate ice cream and hiked. It was so much fun!
  • {Visit the lake} 100%: I did this three times this past month! I love the lake. The sun, floppy hats, sun dried hair and hot summer days. Man, I live for this time of year.
  • {Read two new books} 65%: I am mid way through my second book. I read The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand and am working on The Circle Maker.
  • {Move} 100%: I am so glad and ecstatic to cross this off the list and hopefully keep it off for a few months. I am tired.
  • {Have more girl time} 100%: I have spent some amazing weekends with girlfriends and I am getting more time with my mom since moving back home. I am very lucky y'all!
{Spend one day watching tv}
Is this a bad goal? I want one day of doing nothing. I don't even want to leave the house. I prefer painting my nails in bed while watching Ally McBeal on Netflix. That show totally makes me wonder why I didn't keep the path of law school. Briefs, terminology and the mass amounts of studying I did for Political Science in college were enough. That's right. I almost forgot.

{Workout 5 days a week}
But Katie you have a health/workout thing on every monthly goal post. You are right. Right I sayyyyyy! I need this point. Let me be.

{Make a new recipe}
This goes a long with my Summer Bucket List. I am thinking Key Lime Pie and a new veggie salad. Something refreshing for summer, of course.

{Pick fresh fruit}
My grandpa has a plum tree in the backyard just calling my name. Katieeee....

{Send some snail mail}
Y'all when did snail mail become old fashioned? I remember wanting to receive mail and checking the mail box religiously at 8 years old expecting something handwritten. The only thing I got was a Limited Too Coupon. I am making a proclamation to send some handwritten notes to my best gal pals. A letter speaks love and joy into peoples lives. Isn't that what it is all about?

What are your July goals? There is a lot to get done but so much goodness to soak up in between. Make it all worth it lovelies!
