Goals | June (& a catch-up post of the past couple weeks!)

Ooook. SO. I haven't blogged in over two weeks. And while I realize this is very bad, I feel that you should know it's because I hadn't been HOME in over two weeks. And folks, lets face it, it's really hard to sit down and blog when you're photographing a week-long convention, or three weddings, or spending time with your family, your in-laws and other family friends that you rarely see. As much as I'm trying desperately to be a better, more consistent blogger (and I really am trying!) real-life people interactions will always come first. Because those are moments that you can't get back if you step away from them. So, please forgive the severe lack of posting of late, and know that I AM excited to get back in the swing and have much to share!

1) Kylin & Jordan Featured!

To start off with, I don't want to gloss over the fact that the beeeautiful wedding of my friends Kylin & Jordan recently got published in the summer edition of DIY Weddings Magazine! I'm so excited that not only can you buy the digital version of the magazine, therefore it's being featured online, but you can also buy it in PRINT! This is the first official thing I've had published in print, so that makes me excited. Plus, I love showing off my gorgeous friends and the wedding that they put so much lovely effort into! So, you should definitely check it out!

2) May Goals Update

As always, the things in bold are what I did accomplish. It was a bit of a rough month, as we were busy/gone for about half of it. So, have mercy on me as you read the list...

PERSONAL GOALS
  • Continue working out at least 4 times a week (I did this the first two weeks, but not the second two...)
  • Brainstorm and accomplish another for-the-apartment decorative project
  • Make 2-3 meals per week, without Aaron's help (8-10 for the month) (again, the first two weeks when we were home, I did!)
  • Have girl time with at least 4 different friends in person
  • Call or hand-write at least 2 far-away girlfriends
  • Mail the last Thank-You's
  • Order Wedding Album!
  • Make more progress catching-up on personal photo editing & uploading
  • Work on organizing iTunes & all Music folders on computers
  • Sort through all clothes & shoes and get rid of some!
BUSINESS GOALS
  • Make detailed weekly to-do lists
  • Total all receipts/costs from January - April
  • Get mileage for both cars up to date
  • Blog at least 2 times a week (trying this again!)
  • Finish researching Business Insurance options & decide on a company/policy!
  • Finish researching and choose a company for online backup & off-site storage!
  • Finish researching laptops/desktop monitors
  • Make a list of prioritized purchases!
  • Edit one bridal shoot
  • Edit two weddings
  • Shoot two weddings
  • Prepare for & lead the photographic team at TeenPact (the organization my husband works for) National Convention
So, as you can see, THIS time around I did a lot better with business goals than personal ones. But hey, any progress is still progress!

3) June Goals

All right, here's what's on the agenda for this month (even though we're already over a week into it, now). The personal goals are nearly staying the same, because so much went unaccomplished last month.

  • Mail the last Thank-You's
  • Order Wedding Album!
  • Make more progress catching-up on personal photo editing & uploading
  • Work on organizing iTunes & all Music folders on computers
  • Sort through all clothes & shoes and get rid of some!

BUSINESS GOALS
