Simplified Goals July 2014



Hey y’all! It’s a new month and that means it’s time for some new simplified goals for the month! Before we do that, though, let’s take a moment and look back at what our goal was for last month – catch up on all those unfinished projects.

Here’s how we did:


– paint windows and retrim

– curtains (all rooms – some are make, some are hem) – IN PROGRESS

Living/Dining Room:

– put together new furniture (sofa table and new dining storage)
– move old shelving to new homes

Master Bedroom and Bathroom:

We’re really happy with our progress, overall. It was a long list and we were working primarily on the weekends.

So, what’s on tap for this month? Here’s what I’m focusing on:

  1. Finish the upstairs guest bathroom make over.
  2. Paint the living room and put together new Ikea storage
  3. Clean out and organize my make up stash (it is out of control. y’all…for real)
  4. Clear out my blog’s drafts folder and finish unfinished posts to the point of scheduling the posts.

I’m cutting down from five goals to just four because these are pretty big projects. What about you? What goals have you set for yourself this month?
