a new month...

I have decided that August is "my" month! For no particular reason (as Forrest Gump says), I am going to finally get off my butt and make some changes!

Get healthy (lose weight, be active) ~ I have started another blog with a friend of mine. She has been a real inspiration this past year! She is now training to walk a half marathon in Sept...pretty awesome goal! So we are in this as a team and hope to support each other through the challenges of getting there.

Quality time with the girls ~ school is starting soon and schedules will be hurried and busy. I am going to spend more quality time when I have the girls. Play outside, play board games, cook together. Ava has been especially clingy lately. I need to be sure to spend one on one time with both girls.

House projects ~ um, get them done! LOL Seriously, I am planning to go pick out paint this weekend and make a decision about wall colors! I am starting with the girls' rooms upstairs. I would love to get them all organized in time for the start of school. They should be easy since we already have an idea on colors for them. I am on the hunt for 2 twin beds - something unique and kind of funky that I can paint white to match.

So that should keep me busy (I didn't even mention my plan for a budget and getting my finances in order!!)

Happy August!


  1. ooohhhh! Budgets and finances in order. I love that stuff! Kinda crazy but I balance my checkbook every day and check the online bank account at least twice a day. I really need to find something else to do with the time! LOL

  2. Good luck with all that. Change is fun and good for you.
