august goals

August Goals

There are only days left in my girls' summer break.  I have been incorporating daily, fun summer break activities for them, so they remember their summers as fun ones.  I am also documenting the process, and sharing the photos with family via email.  I recently started uploading funny videos of them on a private YouTube channel, and sharing them with family, as well.  Not all of our family lives nearby, so those that are far especially enjoy these little peeks into our lives.

I wasn't able to make the s'mores bar in July as I had planned, but I am so doing it in August.  It's going to be delicious.

On that note, I will be talking about my "weight loss toolbox," activity routines, and current activity challenge within the next few days.

I tend to make the same things over and over for meals.  Do you, too?  I am going to try to make 3 new recipes to incorporate into our family's meals.

I don't drink nearly enough water, and I am determined to drink, at least, what I am supposed to.

The next step in my craft room is to sort through my paper stash.  It is kinda overwhelming, but I am determined to do it this month.

I have a few decor pieces that don't match, so I'll be painting them this month.  I have a black ampersand bookend that I am painting white.  I am looking forward to that one.

Finally, I am working on a journal collaboration.  I need to finish up my pages this month.

  1. yeah that means there will be more post... can't wait to see ur craft room. i am ordering one more thing for my space and i can't wait...

  2. Organizing my paper is a challenge! Good luck to you, Jessica! ♥

  3. I just started making new recipes a couple weeks back {my goal is 2-3 new ones each week}. Some have been so-so and others have been great! I have a "selective" eater son so I was tired of eating tacos and hamburgers every week. Love tacos, but not every stinkin' week LOL

    Good luck on sorting your papers. I have to figure out some storage system that allows me to get to my piddly little stash of supplies without moving 3 things first - I miss my craft room!

    Have fun reaching your goals this month Jessica! Can't wait to see the painted decor pieces :~)
