Here are my July goals!

Monthly goals

1. Plan Finley's 3rd birthday - Finley will be three at the end of this month! I can't believe it! We will just be doing a family party at our house again. We need to buy/assemble her gift (a swingset!!), send invitations, order a cake, and plan for food and (minimal) decorations. I also write her a letter every year on her birthday, so I put that on my list as well.

2. Save for laptop - Continue saving for my new laptop!

3. Make fall schedule - Between Casey and me working full time (and often more than full time), church activities, Casey's band practices and shows, and Finley's music and dance classes, we already have a full calendar for the fall. Casey and I always like to talk through our schedule and plan out as much as we can. For instance, we always try to find a night of the week he can devote just to grading papers. It helps us a lot to have that loose plan, even if we don't always follow it exactly.

4. Plan anniversary - We'll be celebrating our ninth wedding anniversary this month! Want to make sure I prioritize celebrating with dinner, a gift, and a card.

5. Clean out garage and org room - This one has been bugging me for a while but I never want to put it on my list. :) Our garage needs some attention, and what we call our "org room" ("organizational room" according to our house plans - it's the little room off the side of our kitchen) has become the place where we stack everything instead of putting it away. Yes, I see the irony in the org room being really disorganized! :)

6. Kentucky trip - We will be heading to Kentucky to visit family this month, and we need to figure out a dog sitter, make a packing list, pack, and go on the trip.

7. Read 4 books - Continuing to pursue my goal of 48 books this year (I'm so close!!).

Weekly goals

1-4. Eat at home - This is the one thing I want to focus on in July on a weekly basis! We've gotten really used to eating out since we've been on the go so much.

Daily goals

1 & 2. Stand/move goals - My Apple watch tells me when to stand and move to meet my personal goals, so I want to continue to meet these goals at least three times per week (more is better!).

3. Weight Watchers - Would like to phase my way back into following my WW plan.
