July 2016 Goals

 

Hello there! Just like that, June is officially over and a new month has began. Can you believe that?! On the plus side, did you know July is national ice cream month? This month, I'm definitely planning on enjoying as many ice cream cones as possible! It's the absolute perfect excuse, right? Haha! If only it worked that way. Ice cream cones in moderation will have to do. Last month, I shared five goals that I set to accomplish and I was able to cross most of them off my list. Click here to see my goals for June 2016. I still need to find the perfect bar stools for my breakfast bar and even though I bought the perfect beach read, I haven't actually started reading it yet. I'll get to it this month, I promise!

My goals for July aren't incredibly complex. I really want to focus on making my house a home, a place where my husband and I can come home to relax. I want to be able to enjoy the space and have it be almost like an oasis, a comfortable space where we can come to unwind from a long day.

01. My first goal for the month of July? I would love to DIY a television stand and a headboard for my bed. Well, I'd love to help my husband DIY those things. Haha! Does it count if I design the furniture and he makes it? I think I'll count it as fair! (; It's just that I have a vision in my head of how I want these products to look and I can't find anything remotely similar. My solution? Make it yourself! This month, we have a camping trip to Malibu, so in between planning that and spending time out there, I sure do hope we find some time to make these furniture pieces.

02. My first office! My husband said he wanted to make our spare room into an office for me and I couldn't help but smile from ear to ear. He's just so sweet! To think that I'll have an entire room dedicated to my work and blogging makes me incredibly excited. The most challenging thing will be finding the perfect furniture (or making them). I like to think I can be an ok crafter haha so this will be new ground for me too. Thank goodness I have a husband who knows how to build things. So this month, I will have my first official office, a little haven for all things pretty and I couldn't be more thrilled which leads me to my next goal...

03. Find the perfect desk. I need a desk, desperately. I got rid of my old one TWO months ago! Recently, I've been working on my laptop everywhere, from the kitchen bar to the living room floor (currently writing this blog on the floor right now). Even though the floor is quite comfy, I'm coveting a cute desk and chair situation. I'm on the hunt for the perfect white desk. Something on the simple and minimal side with a smaller footprint. I definitely don't need anything big but it absolutely has to be white. I just found out Target is releasing a collaboration with SugarPaper today online and they have the cutest desk! The only problem is, I wish it was a little bit smaller. So the hunt still continues... I WILL find the the perfect desk!

04. 10K All Day. For those of you who don't know this about me yet, I'm huge on staying fit and living a healthy lifestyle. When my husband and I first got married, my idea or theory of healthy was eat well and that pretty much sums it up, working out never crossed my mind! However, I remember my husband telling me, "You know you have to physically work out to be healthy too, right?" I remember looking at him like those words didn't make any sense, like they were a foreign language! Ha! Fast forward to today and we workout four to five days a week and I love it. One thing I told myself I want to do is run a 10k. We already run several miles a week so I think training to run a 10K should be no problem. It's a challenge I'm willing to take.

Cheers to a new month! What are some of your goals for the month of July? Let's keep each other accountable. Thank you so much for taking a moment to stop by. Happy Sunday!
