Five on Friday - June Goals

May was B-U-S-Y and ended on a very sour note, but surprisingly, I managed to accomplish almost everything on my list.

Today I’m recapping my May goals and listing my June goals.  June goals are going to look a bit different/more generic than they were originally going to since Olivia broke her arm, but we’re just going to try to roll with it.  As always, I’m using a Y for YES and N for NO to indicate whether or not I accomplished my goals. 

May Goals

Relationships/Connect/Be the Light

Y  Start volunteering at the school again. – Yes!  I was able to help out with our spring event, and I was able to volunteer inside the school for Teacher Appreciation Week!  It was so dang good to be back!

Y  Have lunch with a friend. – I was able to go on, not one, but TWO lunch dates, each with an old co-worker-turned-friend.  I hadn’t seen either of them since before the pandemic, so both were wonderful reunions!

Y  Plan a girls dinner outside. – Yep, we got our dinner plans in place!



Y  Meditate, quiet time, and affirmations every day.

Y  Drink 64 oz. most days. 

N  Close all rings on my Apple Watch at least 15 days. – I only closed them 12 times.  I was on a roll after the kids got out of school, and I had big plans to work out every single day for the rest of the month, and then Olivia broke her elbow so that didn’t happen.

Y  Visit with therapist via Zoom.

Y  Visit with my new general practitioner for the first time.

Y  Read DARE.

Y  Read 1 fiction book. – I ready Firefly Lane and loved it!

Y  Load up on books for summer.



Y  Attend our school’s spring event.

Y  Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.

Y  Celebrate Mother’s Day.

Y  Wrap up baseball and have an end-of-season celebration.

Y  Wrap up dance and watch Olivia perform in her recital.

Y  Get celebratory milkshakes or ice cream to end the school year!!!!

Y  Record a video every single day of the month and upload to my One Second a Day app.

Y  Start working on our summer bucket list.



Y  Book our Disney trip!!!!

Y  Start planning new things to do on beach trip.

N  List more summer clothes on Poshmark.

Y  Buy ferns for porch, take 2.

Y  Take down school year bulletin board and put up summer bulletin board in mudroom.

Y  Photograph, recycle, and file kids’ school and artwork from this school year.

Y  Complete 1 thing on Master To-Do list. – I did two things!  Woo hoo!


Blog/Social Media

  1. I love that you want to read a book aloud - that will be so fun! And yay for going back to church - so excited for you!

  2. 25 accomplished is great! The ferns look gorgeous. Love your funnies. Have a great weekend.

  3. You did great on your May goals! What did you think of Firefly Lane? I'm pretty sure I ugly cried at the end haha!! And thank you for volunteering at your kids' school--teachers appreciate that so much!

  4. Girl you rocked your May goals - truly amazing!! Hoping you have a wonderful weekend ahead! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  5. I'm trying to think of a book you could read them! We still do read alouds. The first one we did was Harry Potter - the whole series took us years! lol.

  6. I am a geriatric millennial too. Ugh. I love Olivias recital costumes. If you get a bunch of suggestions on the books let me know. We love wading to the girls.

  7. I am a geriatric millennial too. Ugh. Sad. I love Olivias recital costume. If you get a bunch of suggestions on the read allude, please share. We love reading to the girls still. Have a great weekend.

  8. I'm a children's librarian, so I can give you a few read aloud recs :) : Percy Jackson series, A Wrinkle in Time, Holes, Because of Winn Dixie, and any Beverly Cleary.

  9. Oh my gosh, I love how organized you are with all your goals! I need to be more like this! And if you need book recs, I just posted a review with 8 brand new releases for the summer and they are all FANTASTIC!! That Inspired Chick

    1. Oh that's great! Thanks for letting me know! I'll have to check out your post!

  10. Have you made a post about what you use for meditation etc? Preferably free as there is so many! I need to start!

    1. I use the Calm app. I started using the free version and it was so wonderful that I ended up buying a year subscription so I could see what else they offer. I loved the paid version so much that I bought a lifetime subscription last year and I it has been worth every penny. It's pricey, but just before Christmas every year they put it on sale for 50 or 60% off (or maybe more?? I can't remember) so I was able to get a great deal on it. I'll use it every single day forever so it was worth the money to me. That said, I know everyone is not willing to shell out that kind of money, but I highly recommend the free version of the app, too! It is really great!
