Hello August! - YUMMommy

Hello August!




Is it really August already?  Where has this year gone?  Before we know it we'll celebrating Labor Day, then Halloween, Thanksgiving and eventually throwing up the Christmas trees.  For now though, I'm focusing on making it through this month.  My goals for August are:

Finish School Shopping:  We still have to buy uniforms, a handful of supplies from Moo's supply list and a bookbag for JJ.  We might also have to shop for thermos as well to go in their lunchboxes.

Successfully Complete VEDA/Vlogust:  Today was the first day of VEDA (Vlog Every Day in August) & Vlogust.  For my first video I did the About Me prompt from YouTube Mommy Meetup. Fingers crossed that by the end of the month, I will have 31 vlogs posted!  Don't forget to subscribe to my channel if you haven't already.



Continue Working Out: I'm on a mission to retone my abs, arms and legs.  So far I've been doing really good with my workouts.  With school starting soon, I'll have more time to feel the burn after I drop the kiddies off.

Try More Hairstyles:  Now that I've pretty much perfected my twistout, I'm ready to start experimenting with more natural hairstyles.  My sisters and I have decided to do a 30-Days No Heat challenge.  I've been giving some thought to doing either flexirods or a straw set next.  I want to try doing a pineapple, but I need a little more length so that my curls will the way I want them to.

Interior Decorating:  We may have everything unpacked, but now it's a matter of making this place flow and shine.  I'd love to get some photos developed to hang on the walls.  I need to designate a vlogging space other than my bathroom. We still have to buy a dining room table set and Moo needs a new bed.  This list goes on, but that'll be a later post.

Blog More:  I've been blogging significantly less this summer and I'm ready to get back to blogging on pretty much a daily basis.


So, there you have it folks.  Nothing too complicated, but I'll check-in on September 1st and evaluate how I did.  

What are your goals for August?

  2. This month I'm all about navigating my two sites successfully! I have a lot going on with both of them. Trying not to burn myself out. Fingers crossed!

    I'm in the natural hair club too. I am so stuck on the wash and go. It's so easy that I just seem to fall back to it every time. I need to try some new styles.

    1. I have yet to perfect my wash and go. I'm pretty sure I haven't found the right product combination yet for that. Don't work too hard maintaining your sites. Burnout will creep up on you before you know it. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. I the key to gaining interactive followers is definitely being active on social media yourself. I've been taking mini breaks from social media, but I'm gradually getting my feet wet by joining in some Twitter parties from time to time.

    1. You can definitely do it! I'm so proud of you and all the progress you've made thus far. Keep up the good work.

  5. I love that you blog in weird places, too (my blogging is either done in the bathroom or on the couch--I want a designated space, too!). My goals for this month are to manage my blog while I move into our new house, and keep working on growing my Facebook following. I'm trying to focus on each of my social media channels individually--doing it all at once is way too overwhelming!
