What type of goals do you have this month?



  1. I love this and congratulations on all of your successes! :D I started a "Healthy Me" blog but took it down and just decided I'd implement it into my existing blog. I barely have time for this blog. I am however going to check out your garden blog. I have a secret goal for the month of July which I'll reveal at the end of July. Fingers, eyes, and toes all crossed that I will be as successful as you have been but once you see what my goal was, you'll see how challenging it was, especially for me. :D Continued success Jolene. I'm cheering you on all the way from Idaho!

  2. Thank you Mimi. I appreciate your support.

  3. Look at all those successes (and "more or less" successes)! Well done, you! I'm sure you're feeling better, with working out 5 times a week and getting those fun weekend dates. Yay! And you're gonna love Yellowstone- is it part of your anniversary celebration?
