Another month over, I can’t believe it but I am excited to say goodbye to October and hello to September, mostly because it’s my birthday month and that really excites me. I guess this month technically isn’t over yet, but it’s close enough as it’s the last day. Anyway, let’s just get right on into talking about the month of August.
I think the most exciting thing that I can think of that happened during the month of August was that I went to get my wedding dress altered, which is both exciting and sad, but I don’t really want to talk about the sad part right now, maybe I’ll mention it in my healthy update or maybe I’ll mention it in my monthly wrap up for September. But, anyway, it’s exciting because that means it’s not six inches too long anymore and that’s a great thing, I go back the day before my birthday to make sure everything fits and looks the way I want it to, which is very exciting and I’m hoping everything is perfect, I’m sure it will be but I’m hoping for it all to be perfect still.
Something fun we did recently was we went bowling and mini golfing in this month, maybe it’s a little bit childish but I really enjoy doing both of these things. I beat my fiance at bowling, which is a rare occurrence as I am not that great of a bowler and if I’m being honest, that was a really satisfying moment.
Other than that I’m not really sure there’s been much going on in my life this past month, we did get together flowers for the wedding sorted out, I guess that’s a thing that should be featured in a post. We haven’t seen them yet but we are getting a sample arrangement put together sometime during the month of September, probably close to my birthday, which is exciting. Other than that my month has been all blogging, working and trying to focus on getting in better shape and such.
I did now have a header on the blog! In case you guys didn’t see, it’s very simple but I personally like that and am pretty happy with it. I’m also updating my images I use to pin, so that should be pretty exciting but that’s more of a next month thing than it is this month one.
Let’s talk about last months goals and how they went. Let’s start with my No Buy, that did not go as well as expected, I was doing really well until the Ulta platinum appreciation event where there were a lot of things that were 10x the points and the rest were 5x, it’s safe to say that I have some new things to play with that you guys will see later on and have a ton of points, but other than that day I broke my no buy one other time which I think was pretty good. I think something else I’ve done really well with is my Social Media, I don’t think I am quite where I want to be with it, nor as active as I might want to be but I think I’ve gotten more active and have taken a couple big steps in the right direction. Driving More this is the one that I have failed at over the past month, I haven’t driven at all, so this is something I’m still going to have to work on. 250 Followers, this might have been me biting off a more than I could chew because I did not get here this month, however, I did hit over 200 followers this past month and I’m happy about that. Thank you guys for that! And the last one is my Reading Challenge, I did not get ahead like I had really wanted to but I have caught up and I am really happy about that, I didn’t like falling behind.
Driving More. I failed miserably at this one last month so this is one that I want to bring back because this really needs to happen.
Getting Ahead With My Reading Challenge. It’s nice being caught up but I really like being ahead, just incase things get hectic later in the year as I really want to finish this reading challenge, I want to be able to say I read a book a week in 2017.
Social Media. Of course, this is back on here as well, but I do want to work on this one a little bit, I have some room for improvement and I think I’m almost there.
Losing Weight. I am not going to beat myself up if I don’t reach this goal, but I would love to lose five pounds by the end of September, which honestly seems like a really easy goal, especially if I stick to the track I’m on.
Decluttering. I have so much makeup and if I’m being honest I’m always getting new stuff, so during the month of September I am really hoping to do a bunch of going through my stuff and getting rid of some things, which means there may be a blog post about that sometime in October.
And that was everything about August and everything I’m hoping to accomplish in the month of September, I guess we’ll see how it all went next month!
What was your favorite part of August?
