How the hell is it already August? I swear I have no concept of time because my brain still thinks it's June!
Since I'm a total Goal-digger, I thought it would be fun to talk my August goals. They say you have to tell the universe what you want if you actually plan on manifesting whatever it is, so that is exactly what I'm doing. Putting my goals out into the universe so they can turn into my reality!
So universe, if you happen to read this, I'm waiting to slay August away with you!
Family Goal ~ Plan a staycation!
We were on such a roll with our mini trips. The wanderlust inside of me was happy & my never been anywhere hubby was excited to actually see places outside of our town. My Insta feed was also looking pretty killer too do to those trips! Then work kinda took over for both hubby & I. Being two goal chasing peeps, we kinda forgot about family time & how important it is for my daughter since all our days started to blend together. Definitely not a good thing. So my family goal for this month is to plan out a family staycation weekend for either the end of this month or September. We definitely need it.
Mommy Goal ~ More Playground Time
I have a confession to make! I HATE the playground! It gives me major anxiety even thinking about it & my hatred for playgrounds was the inspiration behind my killer backyard. No reason to leave my house if I have all the fabulousness right here.
Here in WNY people tend to have kids pretty darn young! Being in my early 30's with a 4 year old usually makes me like 10ish years older than most of the moms at the park & those moms always want to chat!
I'm old! I am! I hate the words baby daddy and bae & I haven't seen the inside of a night club in who knows how long since I go to bed before they even open! I know it's bad to keep my daughter from being social at the most kid friendly place in down though, so I need to get over being the grandma at the playground and suck it up for her. She definitely needs more playground time in her life.
Couples Goal ~ Find a Reliable Babysitter
Gone are the days when I was a kid & my parents had teens begging them to hire them as a date night sitter! Every time we think we found ourselves a reliable sitter they turn into flakes. Two-Three date nights in and it's crickets. I'm thinking since teens are too entitled to babysit these days, I just need to bite my tongue & try care.com. Even if it cost an arm and a leg, quality time with hubby is worth it.
Work Goal ~ More Makeup & Boozy Blog Post!
Haha, I know what you're thinking, how is that a goal? These two topics were definitely part of the foundation of this blog & somehow got the back burner the last 6 months. Once I stopped Periscope, I feel the makeup and booze talk kinda halted and printables & how-to tutorials took there place since they made me money. As nice as money is, I need my foundation back even if it means a slight pay cut. I refuse to be a sellout like I see all over the blogging world! Makeup and booze reviews make my heart happy so hopefully you will see a lot more of those!
Me Goal ~ Purge My Walk-In
My closet is one hot mess! I'm a total clothing hoarder & it's definitely starting to show. I swear half the stuff hanging on the racks I will never ever wear again. I even have dresses from back in my college days which just need to go since I'm pretty sure metallic low cut mini dresses are not PTA meeting friendly. I just need to bag the stuff up and donate it to Goodwill! Pass the stuff on to the next party girl that just happens to be browsing Goodwill for metallics because that totally happens right?
