Summer Intentions

Monday, May 26, 2014

Happy Memorial Day!

Many folks consider today the unofficial start of summer and since I am a teacher that is certainly the case for me.

Summer break is on!

So I thought I'd celebrate with a list of my intentions and goals for this season.

Co-lead a bible study small group with my pal Jamie through the book Restless by Jennie Allen.
Attend Y'all Connect.
Go to Art on the Rocks.
Spend quality time with my mom, my cousins, my best friends and my husband.
Host a family game night at my place.
Rediscover the best of Birmingham.
Host See Jane Write's first mini-conference! (Wanna come? Get your tickets here.)
Exercise twice a day most days of the summer.
Get rid of my muffin top. (Yes, I know this goal is a bit anti-feminist. No, I don't care.)
Buy new running shoes and start training for my next half marathon.

See Beyonce and Jay-Z live at the On the Run Tour!
Take a romantic trip to New Orleans with hubster.
Take a spa trip to Atlanta with my bestie DeShaundra
Attend BlogHer '14 (and take a selfie with Kerry Washington).
Read 10 books.
Freelance more and work to see my byline on some of my favorite websites.
Redesign this blog.
Grow the readership for this blog.
Attend WordCamp.
Buy some stuff: a new phone, a Do You Boo tank, and a maxi dress for every day of the week. (I really like maxi dresses.)

What are your plans for summer?


  1. I'm tired just reading your list. (But I'm glad Y'all Connect is part of your summer plan.)

  2. LOVE it! Sharing yours and Wade's link for conferences to the Alabama Women Bloggers group today~
