June Goals

3 June 2014

Hopping on the goals train a bit late again this month, but with good reason! We just got home from our California trip late Sunday night (actually, early Monday morning), and yesterday was about getting back into the swing of things. I am bursting at the seams to tell you about our adventures; this trip was truly epic, and worthy of being “once in a lifetime” though I hope I get to experience it again :) I also have thoughts to share about preparing for a trip this complex and some tips we picked up along the way, so I think I’ll share those first as we sort through our many photos.

In the meantime, June goals!

To recap, my May goals:
Install a rain barrel (still part of the plan, but haven’t purchased one yet!)
Take photos of our house and post a tour on the anniversary of our closing (the anniversary of our closing has come and gone, but I’ve taken about half the photos, so I’m calling that a success!!)
Set an appointment with an allergist Appointment is on Friday, and I am nervous!
Address shower invitations with newish nib skills Sent! Need to take a few photos so I can share.
Hang art in the kitchen Done! Will share soon, as well.

June goals:
— Install a rain barrel
— Finish taking house photos and post tour
— Finally buy Cuyana bag
— Hang new mirror in our powder room
— Finish preparing for and co-host a baby shower and a few other very fun events
— Pay off our second car loan and celebrate becoming debt free aside from our mortgage!
— Set a date for our Blacksburg adventure

If you’ve posted your monthly goals, I’d love to take a peek!

  1. We have some friends who just set off for a similar California adventure- can’t wait to hear more! The bag you’re going to get is so fabulous!! I truly think it will serve as such a staple for years to come. Just from reading your thoughts about purchases you make (and getting shoes re-soled) I really admire how you research and invest so that your closet is full of timeless, beloved items!

  2. I.CAN’T.WAIT to hear all about your California adventure, and I am thrilled to hear that you are finally buying your Cuyana bag. I have it on my potential Christmas wish list, so I can’t wait to see yours in person to help me decide on the short or tall. I do hope that you are still planning on a monogram, ahem ‘Em’, this bag begs for it. Oh, and I am terribly excited about your last goal. Blacksburg is SO EXCITED for your visit :)

  3. Not an understatement to say I’m dying to hear about your California adventure. I showed my boyfriend your Yosemite instagram photo and said we have to go HERE!

    Also wishing you the best Blacksburg adventure – my old stomping grounds! Hoping Cabo Fish Taco and a trip to The Home Place make it to your to-do list with Kristin :)

  4. Can’t wait, can’t wait to read all about California! Your pictures were out of this world stunning. Congratulations on being all set to pay off your second car loan – so exciting!

  5. Can’t WAIT to see more of your home and especially can’t wait for a recap of your California trip. I have been busting at the seams for quite some time to take a trip to the west coast and will hopefully be able to do so sometime in the future. Looking forward to see what you and John enjoyed most about California! (Going to show my husband so that he is onboard with a trip there ;)

  6. I posted my June goals on my brand new blog and it made me so nervous! I went to MTH in April, and all of you ladies inspired me to just put them out there for the world to see. And it was great! Your June goals sound so fun! I LOVE the rain barrel idea. We finally planted a garden this year, and I really think a rain barrel and composting would take it to the next level! Happy weekend! xo Kristy
