Goal List: 10 Things To Accomplish This Summer | Anchors Aweigh


Goal List: 10 Things To Accomplish This Summer

1. Float the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels and stay in the Hilton. This sounds ridiculous, but Parker and I went a couple months after we got married and stayed at the Hilton in New Braunfels, and it was the best night of sleep we have ever gotten. Seriously, we reference it in daily conversation.

2. Make something out of my French cookbook that I can actually pronounce. I have just limited myself greatly here.

3. Read at least one book. Come on Chelsea, you can do it.

4. Create a gallery wall for my office. I've been collecting things here and there and just need to sit down to piece it all together.

5. Run a 10K. I have been running every day on my lunch break, but I need a goal to work towards. I have been running 15-20 minutes a day, and it's getting a little too easy. I am all about the shortest work out possible, but maybe this goal will keep me out there longer. (Emily, be a dear and throw some motivation my way).

6. Create a scrapbook to chronicle our time in Florida. We want to do this with every place we are stationed. This is another just need to sit down to do it kind of thing.

7. Make airplane flashcards and memorize the T-6, T-45, F-18 (Growler, Hornet/Super Hornet), E-2, and C-2. I know some of these, but it would make Parker oh so happy if I could pick them all out of a line-up. Sadly they all just look like airplanes to me, so this is easier said than done.

8. Set aside a quiet time and really study the Bible. I have the Bible app on my phone and always read the verse of the day, but I know I need to do more.

9. Watch less reality TV and maybe read that book I talked about in number 3. Yeah right, this should really come off the list immediately. There are too many good shows coming on this summer. Big Brother, Bachelor Pad...yeah, this was a bad idea.

10. Actually do numbers 1-9. I'll let you know how this goes. ;)

What's on your to-do list for the summer?

#6 !! I love it! I started after I visited my husband (then bf) in South Korea. I made a semi-awesome scrapbook about our travels for the 2 weeks I was visiting. I caught the bug. I've made 2 more since then, which doesn't sound like a lot, but I THINK IT IS! haha! :) Here you can see how creepy I am... I love it though! I made this one for our travels around Europe in the three months I was visiting him in Italy: http://breeannahope.com/2013/05/02/day-two-may-2nd/

Love your goals, but that image with the caption rocks! LOL! I'd love to read an entire book this summer (not sure how realistic that is for me though). I just wanted to say thanks for the follow back on Bloglovin'; appreciate it! Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

I love your goals! I love scrapbooking, and I think making one for each place you live is an AMAZING idea! I have been making a secret scrapbook that chronicles Dan's time at the Air Force Academy... it's showing all five years he spends there (he went to the prep school for a year first). I only have this year to make and then add pages documents the start/end of each year, his squadrons, activities, and achievements for each year! I'm giving it to him as a graduation gift next May, and his friends are even in on it -- they've been getting me pictures I don't have access to. Can't wait!

Okay, wow. Sorry for that novel I just wrote you that was really not relevant to you at all. I just got a little excited.

I love your goals. I need to hit the gym as well. I usually have been walking during lunch. I am all about quick but intense workouts. Let's try to hold each other accountable.

What a great to-do list!!! I'm excited to see how much of it you're able to accomplish! :-)

Emily Stewart said...

This is a fantastic list! Two things I have to contribute: 1) I will come and drill sergeant your behind like no one's business. Bruce will come too. He's my running buddy since Ryan thinks all he can do is fly helicopters 2) Less reality TV you say?! Wahhhhh :(

Samantha said...

This is such a good idea! Obviously you have to stay at Hilton too because Hilton's are the best (although maybe I'm a little biased ;)).

I definitely need to do 2 on this life. Read a book. Not 3 chapters of one book and quit and then another. Actually finish one LOL and have more bible time.

I love your goals! I decided a couple weeks ago (24 days before my birthday) to run 24 miles before I turned 24. So far, so good! 13 down. It's so fun and motivating to set goals! Thanks for sharing yours, Chelsea!

Hilary said...

Such a great post! We're going to float the river in a couple of weeks. I've never been so I'm excited to see if it's as awesome as everyone says.

Great list! I should make one of my own! :)

I totally understand about all the aircraft looking the exact same. Going through my USAFA photos was a pain because I can't tell which aircraft is which.

(For the scrapbook idea, if you don't want to do a traditional scrapbook you can make a photo book that looks like a yearbook! I am the WORST at traditional scrapbooking haha.)

I'm all in for #5! The color run is finally coming to Korea, and I wanna do the run! Thankfully it's only a 5k so I don't have to do much training before hand.

And how can you go wrong with the Hilton! :)

Love dropping by your blog!
