Weekly Wishes #31: July Goals

Happy Monday!
Can you believe we're halfway through 2014??? Ommmgggggg. I feel like June started about 5 minutes ago...so the fact that I'm sitting here writing out my JULY goals is blowing my mind. June was a really hard month for me, health wise. I spent every day feeling incredibly down from all my medicine/treatments, so I'm excited for a new month that promises a lower dose of all my medicine/less doctor visits! 


A recap of my June goals:
1. Narrow down + finalize all our major wedding details. February 28th, 2015....the Kellers are coming for you!!!
2. Take our engagement photos. Negative. I can't explain how poopy I felt all month...no way was I going to stand in front of a camera and take a zillion photos.
3. Have our engagement party! Yes! It happened this weekend!
4. Focus on my overall health. Um. No.
5. Read a book. No. I'm the worst. 
6. Make a video. Nooooo.
7. Buy a bike. AH! NO! But I'm getting one soon! 
8. Be intentional with friends and family.
9. Try some new recipes.

July Goals:
1. Explore. I don't take enough advantage of where I live. There's SO much to do and SO much to see. I'm really craving new experiences these days, so I'm looking forward to checking out local museums and art galleries!
2.Workout at least 3 times a week. Preferably outdoors so I don't get bored!
3. Go on dates with Andrew. Wedding stuff really took over our lives in June, and it's been crazy. We haven't even gone to Disneyland together in like A MONTH. If you've been a long time reader, you know that's way too long for us.
4. Find time and ways to be creative. No specifics here, either blogging, cooking, crafting, whatever...I just want to focus on letting my creativity take over more often. I tend to fill my days with way too much and I rarely leave myself any wiggle room to just enjoy doing things for the sake of doing things.

What are your goals for July?
Cheers to a new (short!) week, and a FUN new month!

  1. Hey, sometimes life gets in the way. As long as you make goals & work toward them, it doesn't matter how long it takes. I need to focus on my overall health as well. That one is important! :] // itsCarmen.com ☼

    1. Health is definitely a top priority for me! Something about summer makes it more exciting to get out and workout so I'm going to take advantage of the feeling!!

  2. Always remember to go out during the process and not discuss the wedding. Otherwise it'll really stress you out. I know it's very hard though. I just finished.

    1. I kind of want a mountain bike actually! I get to mountain bike with a few kids at work sometimes who are in a biking club and I LOVE it! We go to the back bay in Newport Beach a lot and I love that trail. I thought I wanted a beach cruiser but those aren't actually made for reaaallll rides haha

  4. Dates during the wedding planning process are so good! It's important to focus on you two outside of the wedding. Good luck on your goals!

  6. Also, (because we always begin all correspondence as if it were continuation of our last correspondence) I need to hear all of these wedding details I missed!! LIKE more details on venue, etc. And give you all of my contacts and stuff for you to add to your list of possible vendors and OMG I need to work out, too. Your Google AdSense is actually taunting me because it is an ad for Crunch and I pay $20/mo to go there one time... #fail. Also, you can totally come with me because I have a free guest every time!

  11. Great goals! I can't believe the year is half over either... In September my baby boy goes to Kindergarten, my baby girl turns 1, and I go back to work... this year so far has disappeared in a blink. My goals are to just get out and enjoy the summer with them.

  22. Awh you didn't fail dear!! You got almost HALF of your list done! Failure would be considered only crossing off one..or none of your goals off. Hopefully you get to feeling on your game. I bet you're feeling down because of the lack of Disney trips!!
