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?

You should see my closet. I have things in there that are way old. Dont worry the clothes will go back in style
8/3/2016 12:31:35 am
I've been trying to purge my closet of old clothes this summer too. I really need to get rid of a lot more.
8/3/2016 12:28:27 am
I can't believe that it is already August either. I am going to enjoy every single second of this month before going back to work and school.
8/3/2016 01:53:01 am
This is a great idea to put your ideas out there. I feel like whenever I write something down, I am more likely to go for it.
8/3/2016 02:34:54 am
August is going to be a fantastic month, I know that! Wonderful post!
8/3/2016 04:02:42 am
Half year gone already, so sad
8/3/2016 06:00:02 am
I have always been the type of person to write down my goals. Sometimes I have way too many goals which can be an issue but getting them down is the key!!!
8/3/2016 06:25:30 am
Ahhhhhh! August already! I haven't even thought about my blogging goals for this month yet. Thanks for the kick in the pants :)
8/3/2016 07:32:46 am
In July I was thinking, 'where did June go?' and now it's August! I like writing my monthly goals down and checking them off as I reflect back next month! It's the same way I make my daily to-do list.
8/3/2016 07:56:08 am
My closet needs a complete overhaul! I would love to hire a closet pro to come in and do it for me - but I doubt that's happening, so I need to suck it up and purge that thing.
8/3/2016 08:06:50 am
I am a goal driven person myself and I get carried away with my focus and my family gets lost in the background sometimes. In those moments, I have to just stop. Then take a look around and regroup. I love that you have incorporated a "Family" goal. I think that is brilliant. I always have work goals, house hold project goals, and health and wellness goals… But somehow I missed the most important thing that has been right in my face… my family. I am going to start adding a "Family Goal" into my priorities. Maybe that will be the missing piece to my balance.
8/3/2016 08:24:57 am
I can't beleive I had to change the calendar to August either! love your advice about writing down goals--that really works wonders! enjoy the rest of the summer!
8/3/2016 09:14:57 am
I can't believe it is August, and I also can't believe Christmas is less than 5 months away! I do sometimes find it easier to meet some goals if I write them down.
8/3/2016 09:36:40 am
The days flew so fast, it's suddenly a new month once again! I think it's awesome to have a goal each month, it helps you improve your life from work to your personal life. I hope you achieve all your goals for August!
8/3/2016 10:01:39 am
I am 40 with a 6 and a 3 year old. You are young!! Great goals for the month... I hope the universe has heard you!
8/3/2016 10:58:10 am
These are great goals! I'm in the opposite situation - the youngest of most people I know who have a 6 year old (at 30). This makes the playground awkward for me because everyone seems so settled and together, and I'm still figuring out what I'm doing. Good luck with your goals!
8/3/2016 11:14:02 am
It sounds like you've got some lofty goals for the month! Good luck, and I hope you reach all of them. =D
8/3/2016 12:16:22 pm
I think I have to do some sort of post like this. Will put my idea out for the world to see so I can go hard on it until I reach it!
8/3/2016 12:29:22 pm
Wow, how did we get here already? the year is flying.
8/3/2016 12:32:40 pm
It looks like you have some great goals lined up for August. It's so important to keep track of goals like this. I want to start making monthly goals, too!
I am sad that it is already August. I want summer to last and last! But I'm a big fan of donating old clothing. In fact, my daughter and I are heading to Goodwill later today to try to find her some "new" clothes at a reasonable price. Someone will appreciate your donation, I'm sure!
8/3/2016 01:10:46 pm
I hear ya! It's suddenly August! I agree that writing your goals down makes a huge difference. And I just realized I don't have any yet for this month. Better get on that!
8/3/2016 02:10:23 pm
My goal is cleaning out my closet too! I'm building up too much clothes and it's time to donate some!
8/3/2016 03:01:07 pm
I totally get your annoyance with baby daddy, baby mommy, or bae. I don't get it and probably won't. I have kids that are super far apart and it is kinda weird sometimes but I love it.
8/3/2016 03:15:04 pm
This is awesome! I am now going to start doing monthly goals. Haha, thanks for the motivation!
I'm convinced that August is the quickest month of the year. One minute we're building castles on the beach, the next minute we're reaching for our boots and pumpkin-spice latte! I like the idea of creating monthly goals. I'm also a huge fan of the term "Goal Digger."
8/3/2016 04:01:35 pm
I just purged my closet! Its so great and refreshing.
8/3/2016 04:02:59 pm
It looks like you have some great goals! I too hated the playground! I would rather poke my eyes out then to have taken my kids to the playground.
8/3/2016 04:23:21 pm
The first half of the year has flown by. I need to sit down and figure out my goals for the rest of the year.
8/3/2016 04:33:30 pm
I cannot believe it is August either. My goals this month is shopping for back to school. Just thinking of it gets me sad because that means that the summer is over. But I think to myself count backwards it makes it go by faster.
8/3/2016 05:36:47 pm
We are moving at the end of the month so the only goal I have is to make it through the moving process with as much of my sanity intact as possible lol!
8/3/2016 07:47:12 pm
I love your goals! I have to say that I have never been a super fan of the playground but it is so good if you want to tire kids out.
8/3/2016 08:44:36 pm
I guess teens now are more outgoing and have a different mindset as before when they are still reliable sitters. It's nice that you have goals lined up.
I hate he playground too lol. Kids are mean, the moms are snobby, I'm over it lol! But, my kid loves it, so I suck it up sometimes lol! Biggest goal this month is landing a new fitness class at a well known fitness club. Fingers crossed we both slay August! Good luck!
8/4/2016 12:08:48 am
I hear you about the playground. It would be fine if no one would speak to me other than my kids. LOL :)
8/4/2016 12:42:57 am
You have relatable goals!! My closet is a hot mess as well. I really don't care for the playground but my kids love it.
8/4/2016 12:50:01 am
Oh my, you really have your stuff together. I don't even have a goal and don't think I have all year. Maybe my goal should be to make some goals.
8/4/2016 02:31:48 am
I love goals! I have daily goals that help me keep organized like read for so long, watch something inspiring, do 30 mins workout then monthly goals too like how much weight i want to loose this month, writing it down definitely helps!!
8/4/2016 10:02:23 am
Oh, honey, you are not old! I am 30 something as well and not even a mom yet. Once I adopt I will probably be hitting close to 40. You have some great goals, good luck in accomplishing them!
8/4/2016 12:45:10 pm
I also can't believe it's August already! I love your goals - especially how you have them broken down by each area.
8/4/2016 04:19:54 pm
You are so right you see things differently when you write your goals down. I am going to write down my goals for August and the remaining months.
8/4/2016 10:05:23 pm
Someone's MOM will see the metallic dress at Goodwill and take it to her college daughter. :) My closet is starting to build back up (I downsized, a lot). Funny how fast it rebuilds!!
8/5/2016 12:02:12 am
So excited for August! I have a HUGE month of sales so I'm working my butt off to reach my goal. I also got my planner for 2017 and started filling it! Let's get em!
8/5/2016 02:12:00 am
Time is flying!!! :/
8/5/2016 07:01:09 am
I am a goal driven person and really love your goals! Thank you for sharing with us!
8/5/2016 12:17:04 pm
Staycations can be so much fun! I hope you are able to plan it somewhere awesome!
8/5/2016 03:34:27 pm
I can't believe that it's August! Time flies way too fast!
8/6/2016 10:22:31 am
Agreed that it's crazy that it's August!!! My goals are strictly business related this month, but I love that you included your family! I wish you were in Kansas City...I'd totally come shop your closet! That's what I do...I have a fashion-resale boutique and fashion blog. :) Good luck on reaching your goals!
8/7/2016 01:39:58 am
I am totally sure that there is someone browsing at Goodwill right now looking for a low cut metallic mini dress. Lol, hey it's retro!
8/7/2016 12:31:06 pm
1. I am with you on the staycation bit. I need one as well!
