July Update and Progress Toward Goals

We are back from an amazing 13 days in Spain and Portugal!  We got back at midnight Wednesday night and have been trying to catch up on life as I like to say - laundry, bills, work, housework, groceries, getting the animals back on schedule and everything else in between.  We had such a great time and it was so nice to get away, just the two of us.  I'll share more about our trip in another post.
at Coca Castle in Spain

It basically took me 2 days to get all of the pictures uploaded to Shutterfly - a - internet was so slow; b - I took a ton of pictures; c - I was trying to make folders and organize as I went to make scrapbooking a little easier!  I've also already started laying out the pages I want to make -- I want to get this in the books before I forget!  I also journaled the trip as we went and that will be helpful with scrapbooking too plus I always love to journal big trips.

I blew my walking goals out of the park!  All we did for 13 days was WALK!!! A lot of it being uphill too. I earned quite the blisters on the balls of my feet from it.  

Here's a quick update on my other goals:

1 - Used up Products
  •  It's a 10 Shampoo - Good riddance!  I will not be repurchasing.  I don't think it's worth the money at all.
  • Too Faced Mascara - LOVE.  Can't wait to use up some more mascaras so I can repurchase.
  • Lancome Lash Primer - one of the better brands I've used.  Would repurchase
  • Redken Satinwear 02 - I really love the smell of this product and it's a good heat protector when blow drying/curling.  Will repurchase once I use up some more products.

 2.  Books & Magazine

  • 9 magazines cleared out this month! I still have SUCH a backlog to get through
  • 1 audible book - Still Missing by Chevy Stevens.  Really good book full of twists.
