Chasing June & June National Days

Happy last day of May! Has Memorial Day weekend left you feeling refreshed? Exhausted from all that you packed in? Personally, I’m feeling ready to take on the week and the fresh new month ahead. While I still can’t fully grasp that it’s nearly summer and the year is half over, I love all that a new month and season can bring.

June is already looking pretty packed with a trip to Boston, a friend coming in from of town and lot of other randomness. In fact, the summer is already starting to look that way. How does that happen? I’m in the process of making a hiking bucket list because I’m determined not to let the summer pass by again without going on a few good hikes!

Looking towards this month, I bring you all the wacky national days of June. Use them to your liking, or just for a good laugh. Ther’s always something to celebrate, right? Even if it’s just jerky ;-).

If you’re into goal setting or are super Type A like me, then I’ve got you covered with the goal section at the end of the post. Granted, they are my goals which have absolutely nothing to do with your life but sometimes reading other people’s goals can spur on new ideas or trigger to do’s of your own.

Happy June!!

Goal Setting

May Goals

Start planning my husband’s Birthday party.

Nailed it. I have started but the biggest challenge is finding a venue that fits all my needs. The search continues…

Stick with Tone It Up’s Bikini Challenge.

Failed it. I’m so disappointed with myself on this one. I can list a bunch of excuses but I definitely fell off the wagon.

Get a new picture for the blog.

Nailed it. It will go up when my redesign goes live.

Move forward with the redesign.

Semi Nailed. We made some progress and it shouldn’t be too much longer here.

Get newsletter out.

Failed it. 

Make progress with spring cleaning.

Nailed it.  Pretty much this whole last weekend was about cleaning so we are definitely making headway!

Plant new flowers/herbs.

Failed it. 

June Goals

Finally roll out the redesign.

Review my New Year’s Resolution and evaluate where I’m at and what adjustments need to be made.

Clean out flower box and plant new flowers/herbs.

Finish deep cleaning/organizing house.

Drink more water (at least 8-8 oz glasses)

Be consistent with exercise (3-4 x week), even if its mild exercise or walking.

Start a new book.

Make my hiking list and plan out the hikes.

Make progress on hubby’s Bday (book a venue).


What does your June look like? Any big goals that you are trying to crush? It’s a new month full of new possibilities, so let’s do this! 🙂

  1. Who knew there were so many national days???? I promise I feel like there is a day for everything. LOL who creates these? I can’t believe it is already June. My Memorial Day was nice and relaxing and seemed to feel like a longer weekend than normal 3 day weekends.

  2. Chocolate Ice Cream Day, for the win!!!! I’m excited about hug your cat day, but I’m not so sure my cats will appreciate it! It sounds like you did pretty good with your May goals and your June goals sound totally attainable! Can’t wait to see pics of your husband’s birthday party!
