July Goal Results

I cannot believe July is over! Here are the results from my July Goals…

1. Blog More
I think it is safe to say I have blogged more this month compared to last year! I cannot guarantee that I will be successful with blogging in August.

2. Use my Erin Condren Life Planner Daily
I LOVE my Erin Condren LP! I have used it daily to keep track of personal reminders and work related events.

3. Make Something for myself
Technically, I didn’t make something for myself, but I made something for our home. I framed Clint’s football jersey to hang in the basement hallway.

4. Celebrate Independence Day
Check!..We had a great time celebrating with our best friends by eating lots of good food, playing cornhole, and watching fireworks.

5. Enjoy my 25th Birthday
I spent my birthday with my wonderful husband. We went to my sister’s pool. Then, he took me shopping. We ended the night with a birthday dinner with my mom and step-dad.

6. Try a new recipe
I’ll have to try this goal again next month.

7. Go on a date with my husband
We have had several dinner dates with our friends this month!

8. Finish watching a Netflix TV series
Don’t judge me, but I watched the series Secret Life of the American Teenager. I watched the first two seasons in high school, and I always wondered how it ended. I watched all five seasons. Now, I’m searching for a new series.

9. Read a book
I started reading Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Students. I’m not finished yet, but I’m getting close. Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Students

10. Have a successful pre-planning and open house

Pre-planning and open house was a huge success! I finished setting up my classroom without having to hide stuff in the cabinets! I was able to meet most of my students and parents. I cannot wait to start learning with my new third graders on Tuesday.

Have a happy Sunday!

July Goals

I have decided to create monthly goals for myself. I feel that sharing my goals on my blog will hold me accountable for reaching them. I will post the results at the end of each month.

1. Blog More
I love blogging, and I really want to continue writing more posts weekly. 

2. Use my Erin Condren Life Planner Daily
Clint splurged and bought me a EC Life Planner as an early birthday present. I want to use it to keep track of everything. 

3. Make something for myself
I’m constantly making things for other people or my classroom. However, I want to find something to make just for me. 

4. Celebrate Independence Day
We do not have plans just yet, but I’m sure we will find something to do.

5. Enjoy my 25th Birthday 
My birthday is on a Saturday this year, and I’m looking forward to spending the whole day with my husband, family, and friends.

6. Try a new recipe
I’m tired of eating the same meals over and over. I’m ready to whip up something new in the kitchen.

7. Go on a date with my husband 
Clint and I spend a lot of time together, but I want to go on a real date. I want to do something that we don’t typically do on a weekend. The weekly trip to the grocery store is not a date, so it doesn’t count.

8. Finish watching a Netflix TV series
I still have to enjoy and relax the last few week of summer, so I thought this might be an easy goal to accomplish.

9. Read a book
I spend a lot of time on the computer, and I miss getting lost in a book. I want to find the time to read a good book. Any recommendations?

10. Have a successful pre-planning and open house
It’s crazy to think that I return to work the last week of July. However, I am very excited to get back to doing what I love.

Wish me luck!
