August Here I Come!

The first Friday of the month I will do a fun post looking back on the previous month and setting goals for the new month!
What a month!  We had a long weekend for July 4th holiday.  My mom had a family BBQ on the 1st, my cousin drove down from VA to attend and surprise my mom.  I had so much fun visiting with my cousin (she stayed with us).  She and I went to Maple View Farm for ice cream, a first for me.

The following weekend we had a BBQ for a co-worker of B’s where I made a signature cocktail LemonBerry Whiskey.  The BBQ was a hit and everyone had fun!  I love throwing a good BBQ.
The next weekend we went to Savannah.  You can read all about our trip here and here.  We were in Savannah for 3 nights.  We went to Tybee Island, ate amazing food, and walked so much!  Where it was a great trip I was glad to get home and have a day at home before going back to work. i.e. a Vacation from my Vacation lol
Of course the Nordstrom Sale started during July!  I bought my entire Fall wardrobe!  I honestly don’t expect to purchase anything else this year.  So how will I bring you good fashion content if I don’t shop?  Well I will show you the many ways to wear your fall and summer wardrobe together, the many ways you can restyle items, and hopefully give you a concept of a classic staple closet.

August begins with my Birthday!  38 here I am!  Wow, so close to 40.
I am starting the new year with a new hair style.  I am getting a cut today with my favorite stylist as a B-Day present to myself.  Then after I have to get my driver license renewed.  I will be glad to get rid of my terrible picture lol.
1. Save Money.  We want to purchase a home this year, but need to get a few things financially in order.  I want August to be the month this happens.  
2.  Get more organized.  With School and the Service League starting back up I want to stay on top of my responsibilities.  My grades weren’t the best this past Spring semester.  I will work harder to get those A’s.  
3.  Focus on the direction of Wine & Couture.  I want to bring the best content I can.  Hopefully increase readership.  Also, to find the best way to utilize social media.  Maybe I will take a class on these items.  Who knows.
What are your goals for August?
