Weekend Recap- August Goals

It's Monday, already?! Say it isn't so! Monday came just as fast as the month of August. I can't believe AUGUST is here already and school starts in a little over three weeks! It's so funny trying to get back in school mode- after college, there was no more Winter or Spring or Summer break and now that Sophia is headed to school- those are things we have to think about. We are planning a trip to St Louis soon and we were going to leave around noon on a Friday but then we remembered Sophia will be in school- small details that we're going to have to pay attention to, now. :)

This weekend seemed to fly by even more so and we didn't even have set plans! Why and how does that always happen!? Friday was low key, we played with Odin outside, and had pizza and movie night.

Look ma! I can stand up!

Saturday started out slow and the girls played and watched movies. I headed to work swim party get together during nap time. It was a great time and nice to get out for awhile. I came home and we got ready and headed to the Indianola Balloon Classic. We have gone for a few years in a row now and this year was just as fun!

Sunday was pretty lazy, I'm not going to lie. We all pretty much stayed in our jammies. I cleaned in the morning while the girls played. Sophia has started to take a BIG interest in- wait for it- Barbies... I'm not sure how excited I am about this new development. For some reason, her interest in Barbies is another sign of how big she is getting. So far, she has kept interest in princesses and dressing up- but Barbies? She's stayed away from those for the most part. But all this week and weekend, it's all she has played. She has even given up Ipad time for Barbies.

It must be love- she's sharing her blanket
And since August crept up on me so fast- it's AUGUST GOAL time! You can read my July goals here. 

I did pretty good in July! Sophia's party was a success and thank you notes went out Thursday. We got the bathroom painted and fixed up the scratches on the basement stairwell (from moving furniture out). We got everything purchased for Odin's coming home. The only thing I did not get done was taking out the bushes and ordering prints of our family pictures. I hope to get those things done this month as well. 

Here are my August goals. Pretty simple and do-able. I have really failed at reading this Summer and I think with adjusting to a new job and now a puppy and planning a birthday party, things are settling down (just a little). One of my goals is to read at LEAST one book this month. Also, my 29th birthday is coming up and so I want to make a list of 29 things I want to do until my next birthday. Fun things. Serious things. Simple things. So, if you have any fun ideas of things I could try in the next year, please share! I do want to keep it realistic though so keep that in mind! :) 

So, there you have it! Hello August! Have a great week and I'll see you back on here Wednesday to share some of my quirks and how I am owning my crazy! :)
