Why July 2018 Was Awesome + Goals

July is over and now we welcome August, honestly I have mixed feelings about this because I am still a child at heart I am excited that we are getting closer to my birthday but I am not excited about getting closer to cold weather. I guess it’s going to happen whether I like it or not. Last month I set some goals, so let’s see how I did with those.

Why June Was Awesome + Goals

Why June 2018 Was Awesome + Goals

I can’t believe that June is already over and it’s time to start writing monthly wrap up posts, but it is. It feels like just yesterday that I was writing this post for May. And I am also sure that this is when the months start flying by faster than I would like, however that is a problem for later as today is all about looking into the past a little bit and talking about the month of June.

Why March 2018 Was Awesome + Goals

Why March 2018 Was Awesome

Another month is over and I’m pretty glad to say that March is finally gone, March wasn’t the worst month this year but it was pretty damn close. This month seems to have gone on forever, it still cold and it keeps raining, which is just sad. I am excited for April and even more excited for May, one more month stands between me and going on a two-week road trip. But it’s not about that, instead, let’s get into wrapping up March.

Why February 2018 Was Awesome + Goals

Why February 2018 Was Awesome

This year hasn’t started feeling like last year yet, meaning this year hasn’t felt like it’s started flying by yet and I’m curious when I will start feeling that. January drug on for no less than three months, I am sure, but February wasn’t much better. But let’s just get into wrapping up the second month of the year.

Why December 2017 Was Awesome + Goals

Why DecemberWas Awesome+ Goals

I feel like my content might be sounding a tiny bit repetitive right now, but I committed to doing this and decided that it was a good idea to wrap up December like I would any other month, even though I did just do a yearly wrap up, I just feel like this will be more detailed about the month of December and give me a chance to set some smaller goals. Anyway, let’s get into talking about the last month of 2017.

Why November 2017 Was Awesome + Goals

Why NovemberWas Awesome

Another month down and if I’m being completely honest, I’m okay with this one, I like thanksgiving fine but my heart truly lies with the Christmas season and November being over means it is time to kick off December. But, this post is about November, not December so I will focus on November for just a little while longer.

Why July 2017 Was Awesome + Goals

Why July 2017Was Awesome

It’s August and I’m excited but also not excited, August is probably the month that I like the least, summer is coming to an end, there’s nothing fun going on during the month usually and it’s the month before my birthday so I’m just not typically into the month of August. I hope this one is great and fantastic, I’m trying to go into it with optimism and I do have some fun things planned this month, but we’ll see. This post isn’t about August though, it’s about July, today I will be recapping the month of July and setting some goals for August.

July went by really quickly but at the same time it kind of felt like it went on forever if that makes any sense at all, but that’s what it felt like to me. I have been a busy bee this month, between work, working out and blogging, it’s just felt like a lot. I think everything is starting to catch up with me some, I’ve even taken a Saturday off this month and still feel like I’m so behind on so many things. I hope this overwhelmed feeling goes away soon because it is annoying and not I guess I’ll have to learn to live with it or manage my time a little bit better.

Not a whole lot has gone on during the month of July in my personal life, I haven’t really done anything particularly exciting recently like I’m trying to think of something to update you guys one and not much really comes to mind. We have spoken with a florist for the wedding, we have an idea of what we want but we have to do a little homework and then go back to her to really nail things down. This has probably been my least favorite thing we’re doing but it’s got to be done. I saw Spiderman this month as well, I enjoyed it but that’s nothing overly exciting. Overall, I think July was a busy month, boring but busy.

Adding goals to these posts are something that I started doing last month, it’s something I’m still testing out but it’s something that I’m liking so far and want to keep doing, so I will. First I want to talk about last months goals. No Buy. I failed at this, I don’t think I did too bad, I scaled back my spending a lot but I for sure broke this. At least I did better than I usually do. Eating Better I think I said this last month but this is really a never-ending thing I think, but I still think I did alright and have been improving and I’m pretty happy with that. Continuing To Beat My Monthly Views I did complete this and I really want to continue to do this, I just always want to grow my blog, but we’ll see how long I can keep that up for. Now to talk a little about what I’m hoping to accomplish in the month of August.

No Buy. I’m wanting to attempt this, I want to not purchase anything makeup related for the entire month of August, I would say until my birthday in the middle of September but I know the Ulta 21 Days of beauty is coming and I have no self-control there. Well, I can have some but

Social Media. I really want to start really focusing more on my social media, I’m probably in need of a drastic overhaul of all of them, however, I think I’m going to start with Pinterest since it’s the most neglected of all the social media for me.

Start  Driving More. This might be random but it’s a personal thing that I really want to do. I hardly ever drive and I’m not a bad driver, I’m just not a seasoned driver so I really need to work on this.

I Want To Hit 250 Followers. This may seem like a small number to some but this is a pretty big one for me, I’m really close to 200 so making that my goal would be way too easy, which means that of course, I have to make the goal 250. It’s more realistic but it’s not a small task.

Catch Up On My Reading Challenge. I am two books behind and by the end of August I’d really like to be ahead again, or at the very least caught up.

And I think that’s everything that I’m going to set for myself in this month, more then last month but nothing that I don’t think I can handle. So here’s to hoping that August is successful.

 What kind of fun things did you guys do in July?

Why May 2017 Was Awesome

Why May Was Awesome

It’s the time of the month where I talk about the past month for me, which is usually super boring but on occasion, it’s not and either way, it is something that I really enjoy doing so I’m going to keep doing it. Anyway, let’s jump on into this post and get on talking about the month of May in the year 2017.

I don’t think a whole lot of interesting things went on this month, I worked a lot, I got sick once, I’ve been working out and just those kind of things. We did take a day off this past month and stayed in the next town over for the night, nothing super exciting but it was something nice and peaceful, it was something that I feel like both my Fiance and I needed.

Another thing we did this month was we went and got engagement photos taken, which was something that was fun, and a little bit itchy since they were taken outside. We took our photos along a highway, basically, but it’s a very pretty highway that has a bunch of places to stop because of the river it runs along. Anyway, I’m excited to see those photos but we haven’t gotten those back yet. I am so excited to see them!

Now, for something blog related that I am pretty excited about, every month this year I have gotten more views than the previous month and I did that this month too, May has officially brought me more views than April and I’m very excited about the progress that I am making blog wise! I blog because I like to but it’s also nice to see more people viewing and interacting, I’m very excited about it!

I think that’s really all that I have for this month, pretty boring as usual but I wanted to talk about these things. I think next months monthly wrap-up will be a little bit more fun but that’s because I have some really fun things planned.

How was your May?
