August: The To Do List

Happy August everyone!

Can you believe we're gearing up for fall? I know it doesn't feel like it here in Alabama with all the heat and such, but we're getting there, slowly but surely!

With another month here, I wanted to do something a little new. I love what Carolyn does on her blog. Monthly to do lists, where she checks in on last month's progress. So this month, I'm going to give it a try. I'm going to post my goals and big to do items, and see how far I get!

- Kill the clutter. Donate or get rid of things that really don't need to be in our house.
- Work out three days a week, for at least 45 minutes.
- Spend some time at the pool. (Sad that this has to be a goal, but I want to find some enjoyment at the pool before the season is over and I've missed out on it!)
- Stay organized. Keep my planner up to date, and don't let projects and deadlines sneak up on me.

To do:
- Figure out how I want the guest room and office set up before football season arrives.
- Complete scrapbook pages for a BFF's birthday gift.
- Make my birthday wish list.
- Start planning the Christmas present list. (Yes, I start this early!)

I know I'm forgetting things, but we'll start small for this month and see how I do!

Have a wonderful rest of the week lovelies!

  1. That is such a great idea! Your list sounds really do-able. I think I need to put some relaxation time on the to do list because it doesn't happen otherwise! Sad, isn't it?

  2. good for you! writing it down helps clarify and organize...I am almost done myChristmas shopping! I keep a detailed list of what I buy, otherwise i forget and buy too much or repeat it..amazing the $ that can be saved on clearance and sales...
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.
    have fun...and good luck!
