We’ve hit the middle of the month already! Can you believe half of August 2016 is over? I really can’t. We’ve had a very busy month, and we’ve still got a lot to squeeze in.
So, let’s take a little look back on what we’ve done so far, and how we’ve done on our goals this month.
As a reminder, I kept August 16 pretty simple:
- Finish July Goals
- Finish our Summer Bucket List
- Check some items off my 30 Before 40 List
- Get to the Gym at least 3 times a week
To finish up July, I needed to:
- Make our hotel reservations for Vegas (check!)
- Finish the Summer Session Strong with my Dance class (So far, so good…one more class to go!)
- Potty Training Boot camp (The dates have been set!)
So, I would say we’re looking good for goal number 1.
Our Summer Bucket List is going great. I had made a list for the family, and a list for me and my husband. For the family, we have only 1 or 2 things left. Me and my husband’s list? Not so good. I think we’ve only checked off 1 item. I’m going to do a full update next week, but here are a few pics from our summer fun.
The bottom 2 pictures are from the Twins’ 4th NICUversary party. More pictures and info on that later this week!
I have 5 more things knocked off my 30 Before 40 list, and I’ll share an update on the entire list soon.
I’ve also been to the gym 3 times each week this month! These last couple weeks are going to be a challenge, but I’m determined to make it happen.
August is going great, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the month finishes up.
How is your month going? Have you set any goals for yourself?
Marette Flora @ Floradise says
I had some setbacks in my goal to cross off bucket list items but I have new dates scheduled for accomplishing this. Love that you check in mid-month!
Fashionable Tigress says
You still have plenty of time to complete your goals for the month. I have no doubt you’ll get all them done. Love those cute pics of the NICUversary ❤
Sarah Jean says
I really need to be better about setting goals and looking back to see what I’ve accomplished!
The Oracle says
Awww. Your kids are so cute.
Joules (Pocketful of Joules) says
Great work on your goals. I think I may need to start a 30 by 40 list too! =)
Chrissy Z. says
I cannot believe that half of August is already over. Come to think of it, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!
Great progress on you goals so far and such cute pics! Good luck for the rest of the month! xxx
I can’t believe we’re half way through August. My summer bucket list is going ok. We tried going to a drive in movie this past weekend but it was sold out. I didn’t know that drive ins sell out. So we’ll have to plan better if we want to make that one. I still haven’t been to a farmers market this year either. But I have a list of 20 near me so I just need to pick one that I can get to. The state fair is coming up so that is one end of the summer thing to look forward to.
Way to go on getting to the gym. i need to start working out more often and keep telling myself it will happen when my kids are all back in school. I love your costumes for your party.
I LOVE your Dr. Suess pics—adorable! Yep…summer is dwindling down. I’m frantically trying to finish my bucket list too, but it’s so not going to happen….
Erin @ A Welder's Wife says
I love the idea of a mid-point goal check! I had to look over my goals last week to remind myself to stay on track. You are doing so great with your goals, too! I cannot wait to see what all you accomplish in full for August! Keep up the great work!

Congrats on your achievements! Checking off the majority of the family list is a huge accomplishment in itself – it’s ok that you haven’t done much on your own! I’m sure you are very busy with a family and all that gym time PLUS blogging! 🙂 I am not doing too hot on my August goals but I also was very ambitious when I made them and forgot about all of the school prep I needed to do as well. 😛 Oops.
I often think about setting goals but never make the steps to put them down on paper and make them a reality this is a good motivator. Also congratulations on working out three days a week I too am working on getting back in shape I might need to set some goals to keep me on track
Woohoo! I’m sure it feels great to havedone so well! <3
Sounds like you are doing well with your goals Shann. I am amazed at your awesomeness at getting to the gym three times a week! You can do it for the rest of the month I’m sure 😀
Beth Shankle Anderson says
Good for you! Congrats on reaching your goals and staying on course!
GiGi Eats Celebrities says
I can’t believe there isn’t that much summer left! I won’t lie to you – I am pretty thrilled about this! ha!
Ive never considered setting monthly goals, its a great idea and seems much more manageable than my yearly goals. Thanks for sharing.
Terryn Winfield says
Congrats and so good of you to do a mid month goal check. That’s some great accountability.
Becky @Disney in your Day says
The Cat in the hat party looks so adorable! Great job on your goals!
Great job! It’s hard going to the gym when you’ve got three kids, so good for you! And I can’t wait to see more from the twins’ NICUversary party!
Dana Brillante-Peller says
You are totally kicking butt with the gym and your kids’ bucket list items!! Keep up the awesome work!
CourtneyLynne Storms says
Ahhhhh nice to kick goals isn’t it?! Glad you’re well in your way to achieving this months goals
Wowee, kudos on hitting the gym like that! That’s a huge accomplishment because I totally drag my feet when it comes to gyms and exercising. Oh and the Dr. Seuss party theme is soooo cute!!
