Five Months in // 2016 Goal Progress

In order to keep up with my goals for 2016 a little better, I have been trying to do monthly mini goals. :) See my 2016 goals here

May Goals: 

1) Read 5 Books

Done! I read quite a bit in May! I read essays on hair, a re-telling of Robin Hood called Scarlet, The Crown - the final book in The Selection Series, and I finished the Mara Dyer Trilogy. Overall, I really liked most of what I read. I did end up abandoning the Literary Ladies called Exposure to a Billionaire. To find out more about these books and my thoughts, you can read my May Reads recap post on Monday!

2) Try 5 New Recipes

Done! - Funfetti Cake, Vanilla Syrup, Vanilla Frosting, Blue Margaritas, Mexican Crinkles, 

3) Get Grad Gifts Ready! (Need ideas? Check here & here!)

Done! - Didn't do anything too over-the-top this time around.... but I hope that they were appreciated nonetheless. 

4) Try 1 Workout DVD I Haven't Done Before!

Done! - I tried a Ballet Beautiful DVD... damn I am SO out of shape. Very sore muscles... !

5) Draft 5 Etsy listings

Whomp, whomp. Big fat fail on this one.

6) Get Registered for Conference, Plan out Travel Part!

Done! - I did this! I'm hoping to "announce" our upcoming trips BELOW in June Goals!! :)

7) Watch 2 Disney Movies

Poor Disney movies! Why can't I successfully watch you?!

8) Send Random Mail to Friends/Family

Done! - I sent post cards from an event to close friends. I hope it was a surprise. ;)

9) Learn Something New, or About Something New

Done! - We went to a history of lingerie event at the WWI Museum in KCMO one evening. 

A few things I learned:

-Constriction due to corsets (along with huge dresses and layers) contributed to a large number of fires in the home.

-WWI draft advertisements featured alluring French women and lyrics that made the war sound exotic and fling-like for the potential soldier.

-During WWI steel was stripped from corsets to use for bullets in the war. As a result women didn't wear corsets etc. in the 1920's.

- (I definitely should have known this one...) But the ladies at Moulin Rouge were not wearing anything under those can can skirts... 

10) Plan 1 Date with KC

Done! - I think the event at the WWI Museum would count as a date! We got all dressed up, had champagne and treats, and had a fun time! We also saw Ellie Goulding the same week! :) 

Total: 8/10 - very good if I do say so myself!! :) 

June Goals: 

1) Read 5 Books - ideally 2 from Netgalley and 1 classic
2) 5 New Recipes
3) Plan Our Upcoming Trip to GEORGIA! (Savannah, Tybee & Jekyll)
4) Plan Our Upcoming Trip to NASHVILLE!
5) Try Zumba DVD
6) Send 2 surprise pieces of mail! 
7) Make Dental Appointment... 
8) Watch 4 Disney Movies.... go big or go home!
9) Finish Houston/Galveston Blog Posts
10) Draft 5 Etsy Listings
