june dreams and goals.

How is it possible that we’re already ten days into June!? It seems impossible. And scary. I have a feeling this year summer is going to fly by! Well it’s a brand new month, so I have brand new dreams and goals!

June Dreams and Goals:

1. Go on a wine tour. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and the opportunity is going to present itself this month! 🙂

2. Visit Pittsburgh. It’s been almost two years since we drove to Pittsburgh for a fun-filled day. I’m hoping we get to go back this month.


3. Finish 3 new books. I want to finish reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest, a book for the yoga book club, and another book which has yet to be determined.

4. Go with the flow of things, both at work and in my personal life.

5. Workout a lot. I feel so much better when I work out consistently.

6. Do yoga twice a week. I love how I feel after class, but sometimes getting to the studio is the hardest part.

7. Continue to eat meals from home rather than going out to eat. I’ll allow one ‘cheat’ day a week where I go out to eat!

8. Take more pictures. I’ve been slacking.

9. Go on more dates. With the BF, of course!

10. Stick to my budget. Or at least stay closer to it!

11. Purge unused items. Perhaps for a garage or yard sale? We need to create more space in the house.

12. Take Oscar to the dog park. Just Oscar; not Pepper. She doesn’t play well with others.

13. Tackle a few new recipes! Baked goods, dinners, lunches, etc.

14. Focus on my goals. Reevaluate my Day Zero list and my 2011 thus far {does this fall into “contemplate the meaning of life,” R? 😛 }

May Dreams / Goals:

1. Eat meals at/from home every day of the week but one. We didn’t do this every week, but for the most part, we only ate out once to twice a week. It was the BFs birthday this month, so we did go out fora few ‘birthday celebration’ meals.
2. In an effort to clean out the pantry and our freezer; buy nothing from the grocery store except perishables: fresh produce, milk, bread. For the most part, I did well at this! I did restock a few necessary items in our pantry. And then we made a trip to Trader Joes and kind of re-stocked our freezer with TJs items. Oops!

3. Read three new books. Major fail on this one. I’ve been oh-so-slowly 

reading the Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. But I didn’t even finish ONE BOOK in the month of May. Shame on me!

4. Try two new recipes. I don’t think I did this either. I think I might have tried one new recipe, but I can’t even remember what it was.

5. Work out even more than I did in April. Success! 
I have been kicking my own butt!

6. Spring clean. Big time. I reorganized the pantry; and started the landscaping. But the rest is coming along slowly but surely!

7. Keep up with keeping the house clean during the week. I did a decent job at this. There’s a definite balance that I try in keep and it doesn’t always work out.

8. Get a haircut. Done! I love my new haircut! The length and color is amazing!

9. Plan the rest of our cruise. 
We haven’t planned the rest of our cruise yet at all. Still.

10. Book a massage. I have yet to book it. Life seems like it’s been so busy lately!
I really need to make this appointment. My sanity is dependent on it.

11. Plan a special day for the BF’s birthday. Done! 
I pretty sure he had a great birthday!

I think I could use a massage, too… I love these goals! Very similar to my own.

I really need to get back into reading this month. My Kindle has been collecting dust and that does not make me happy. I think on my days off Monday and Tuesday there will be some serious cleaning around here and work in my flower beds (again).

I also really need to start working out more consistently. We planned a nice bike ride for today but it looks like rain all day long….

When you visit Pittsburgh, you should just keep driving east to my neck of the woods! 🙂

Make sure you hit Kennywood or Idlewild when you're in Pittsburgh. Always a blast!
