I love Summer.
I remember Summers when my biggest worry was trying to find someone to split my popsicle with. [did you guys have those as kids? The kinds with two sections.] I loved playing all day. I would spend 27 hours a day in our pool. My light blonde hair would turn lime green and believe it or not, my now fair skin was a dark shade of tan. Come to think of it, I turned into a funny looking kid every summer. I would not come out of the pool. Not even for a pony or princess fruit snack. If you've ever been a 5 year old girl, you know that's a big deal.
Summers are different for me now, especially now that I'm a wife. I look at Summer as a fresh new start. If you know anything about me, you know that means goal setting.
Goals for Summer:
Organize our disaster of an apartment. [I want EVERYTHING to have a place. with 600sq feet, that's a challenge]
Decorate our disaster of an apartment. [Since we're poor, I'm planning on getting creative. this means very (semi) interesting blog posts for you all!]
Learn to cook. Some of the things on my list: quinoa lasagna, soup, hummus, guacamole, sweet pork, refried beans, pizza, bread. [updates on that tomorrow]
Take dance! [Modern Jazz starts July 5th- Holla!]
Take Statistics [maybe. I haven't decided how high my ambitions are right now]
Go camping just me and the hubby
Work hard to build up a $avings to cushion us for the school year. [I have a set figure to reach]
That's all I have for now. Did you know that I'm so big of a goal freak I made my sweet husband set family goals with me on our honeymoon? Yep, we laid in bed on Sunday afternoon and made some goals for our own little family. Here's just a few.
Always kiss and say goodnight before bed.
Finish the Book of Mormon together before our first wedding anniversary.
Never come up with excuses to miss church. [side note: puking your guts out is a reason, not excuse, and is therefore acceptable]
Play with our kids! Have family nights every week.
Pray and read scriptures together every night.
That's just a few. We have more. We will keep them.
Some of you asked for more pictures. I am more than willing to oblige. I had to put in some umbrella ones too for Gentri ;) you're welcome.
Goal 5,904- make lots of friggin cute, blonde babies. You know it's gonna happen.
Okay, it's more like goal 8.
