My May Directive

This year is already flying by and I'm really only noticing it when I sit down to write my monthly directives for the Kate & Trudy's 2014 Directive. If you haven't joined in yet, it's not too late especially since it's the perfect way to motivate yourself to do this It's never too late to start to motivate yourself to do things!

Last month was a little hinky. I was sick for a bit, spent two weeks at home and then had one of my best friends visit so the blog took a back burner for a bit. I did finally write my April directive in the middle of the month and set the goal of writing 8 blogposts. Well, I got halfway there. But that's ok!

This month
I'm starting this month with a new resolve and overall excitement for everything. I feel like I'm finally getting into the "swing" of being an adult and the dogs which has made such a difference. Don't get me wrong, Stella still has a ridiculous amount of energy and Eevah is still trashcan diving but I love our little family.

This months directive is composed of a few parts:
first, blog more --I feel like this is a recurring goal in each of my directives or even on my weekly wishes. I've hinted at news that needs to be told, as well as having a ton of great past events that I want to share. I'm going to get these out this month.
- Blog two to three times a week - 

second, focus on "us" -- This sounds kind of cheesy but it's actually a really good directive for us this month. My February directive went relatively well. I'm obsessed with Jillian's yoga meltdown and can run longer than I have been able to in years (except in this desert heatwave we're currently experiencing). The Easter bunny and my husband got me all work out related things (. . and Thief. . ) for my birthday and Easter so I'm going to continue to put them to good use. SO:
- Go to the gym/work out 4 times at week -
- Continue the morning walks with Stella and Eevah - 
- Continue infusing water with fruits and veggies and drink more of it -


  1. The water you infused and shared on instagram looks sooooo good! I love that idea and may have to try it this summer.

    I agree that this year is flying by - it seems like yesterday I was setting my January Directive :) So much has been accomplished this year already! I'm excited to keep seeing progress. :)

    Good luck this month lady! xoxo

    1. It's so easy, and delicious! I get into stages where I just won't drink as much water as I should and it's definitely helped me drink more already!

  2. Great goals! Good luck! I've never tried infused water, I'll have to try it out!

    1. It's super easy and delightful! Pinterest has a ton of "fancy" things you could put in the water but I just put whatever we have on hand in it. :) And thanks so much, it's shaping up to be a wonderful month so far!
