July Plans


Happy July 1st! I can't believe the summer is half over already, can you? June has been great but extremely BUSY (you can check out my June Plans post HERE)! I have been kept busy by my online summer school class, house sitting, working, and attending weddings it seems like nearly every weekend. While June was great and while I did get a number of "To Do" thing accomplished I can't help but begin to feel sad that I will have to move back up to college in 39 days. Therefore, July will be full of getting everything else done that I have wanted to this summer. 
Without further adieu:

  1. This coming Saturday (tomorrow) I am off for wedding #4 of 7 this summer. 
  2. Monday, or July 4th, our family is having an impromptu Fourth of July celebration at our house which will involve hot dogs, lots of sweets, and fireworks. 
  3. Tuesday the 5th I will be rapping up my online class with a few test and assignments. 
  4. I plan to hopefully film a hair tutorial for the blog!!! (keep an eye out for that)
  5. My best friend and I will be hitting our computers to write a book that has been in the works since last summer! Fingers crossed we will finally make a great deal of headway in July. 
  6. The second week in July my family will be traveling to Florida for my brothers baseball tournament which doubles as a family vacation. I am sooooooooo excited as this will be my first trip to Florida an I can't wait to take TONS of pictures!
  7. On our way to Florida we are stopping off at the French Quarter in New Orleans to have Beignet's so I will definitely be doing a photo shoot that day and taking a LOT of pictures.
  8. In addition to baseball games while in Florida we will be hitting the beach and a lovely spring, so here's to more picture opportunities!
  9. I am contemplating opening up an Etsy shop that specializes in handmade classic vintage style midi skirts...........we shall see if that business plan gets started in July. 
  10. Towards the end of July my mom, sister, and bestie will be taking a road trip to Magnolia Market in Waco and I can't wait to explore the grounds. 
  11. The weekend of July 23-24 is a double header weekend as one of my close childhood friends is getting married that Saturday (I am actually making cupcakes for that wedding) and then I have another acquaintance getting married that Sunday. 
  12. In July I will also be wrapping up the summer long Bible Study that I have been hosting at my house called DESTINY.
  13. Ugh.....the end of July means packing up to move back to college.......not completely looking forward to that. 
What are some of your July plans?

  2. You sound busy! I know that for myself we have something going on every weekend this month where at least someone is busy. But the last Saturday is a trip to the beach for me and my friends! Yippee!

    5. Writing is not my forte, but editing is much more fun to me. I really should start editing my brother's next book.
    9. Ooh, about the Etsy shop. I would love to see where you go with that. I have an Etsy shop, and I have a bunch of fabric that is waiting to be made into skirts for my shop.
    10. You will have to post about your trip to Magnolia Market. I love watching Fixer Upper!

  4. I read "Waco" and "Magnolia" and thought that must mean HGTV's "Fixer Upper" family. We love watching that show.

    1. Surprisingly I haven't actually watched fixer upper....I guess I should start before I go. I just keep hearing about Magnolia Market and had to check it out:)

  5. It sounds like you have a really fun month ahead of you! I LOVE new orleans so I am very jealous! I also can't believe how many weddings you have this summer!

    This month I'm moving into my own apartment, which I am VERY excited about! So that will keep me pretty busy packing and figuring all that out.
