Monthly Goals: May

Wow! Can you believe May starts this week? This year (as in 2013, not the school year) is flying by! I have less than three weeks left before summer vacation begins, and you already know I'm counting down the days!

Today, I want to link up with Jess at I {Heart} Recess who has a new party where we're sharing our monthly goals. Mine aren't exactly SMART goals, but they're a good starting place! :)

Personal: I'm super excited that Joel and I are going home in May to visit our friends and family, whom we have not seen since Christmas!!!! We'll probably be there for a few weeks, and I can't wait!

Health: This is an ongoing process, but I'm always trying to eat less carbs. I've made a lot of adjustments in my diet (more fish and fresh produce and opting for gluten-free carb options when possible), but there's definitely still room for improvement. My sister recommended one meal per day where I allow myself to have some healthy carbs and then none the rest of the day. Ugh! I can do this, right?!

Blogging: I have my own linky party I plan to host in May. Make sure you keep stopping by (or follow) so you can play along!

School: While the end of the year can be very stressful with meeting deadlines and increased behavior incidents, I really do love my students and want to remember to celebrate my last days with them. I want to find at least ONE thing to laugh about every day... make every day a good one!

Fun: My hairstylist is trying to talk me into an ombre look for my next appointment. It's a pretty trendy look, and I'm not a very trendy person... but I love it on other people. Maybe I should try it out!


  1. Thanks for linking up! LOVE ALL of your goals! What color are you thinking? Hubby wants me to go bright red...not sure about that one :)


  2. Great blogging goal. I've been thinking of hosting a linky too, but just have not taken the time to do it. I'll be sure to stop by and link up when you go for it!

  3. I just found your blog through the May Goals linky. I have dark brown hair and got blonde ombre highlights last summer. I loved them! If you're not sure, start small with a few pieces only on the bottom. You can always add more later. Good luck!
