'Murica | July Goals

We've reached the pinnacle of summer - July is here! And with it comes America's birthday and a new set of goals.

Book It!
Do you guys remember the Book It challenge from grade school? I always participated in these and won myself several slices from Pizza Hut for it. At the beginning of the year I set my reading goal to 40. At the end of June I was already 9 books ahead of schedule. Here's what I plan to read this month.

If you know anything about me you know that I live for the summer. Anything outdoors and I'm all over it. I recently re-found a kayak rental shop at Overpeck Park. They let you rent kayaks for only $15/hour. This is one of my favorite hobbies so it makes the list this month!

Start Budgeting
I've been procrastinating on instilling a major budgeting plan. At first I downloaded a bunch of free budgeting apps and for most of them, I just didn't like the way they worked. I did, however, find a great desktop app that's only a one-time fee of $15. I still haven't made the leap because I don't want to buy it if I'm not going to use it. My logic... it's infalliable... But it's time to do something other than just writing out the plan of how much ois going where every pay day.

Go to Peru
In a manner of speaking. There's a Peruvian restaurant in my town that I've been eyeing, and passing, for the past 5 years. I think it's time I took the first step and checked it out.

This month I had a hard time deciding on goals. I just didn't know what to do. I kind of feel like I'm taking on a lot this month with these goals but I'm ready to cross them off.

What are your plans for the month?

The temps have risen and so has the man candy. Mm Mm Mmmm!
