The Summer of George

I think this might be the summer of George for me. I've set a few goals, have a few things planned, and we're (still) gearing up to buy our first  house. So this summer is pretty epic in my opinion. That being said, I am not excluded from the human tendency to fall back on private commitments- having some form of accountability always helps. So here I am, making a public declaration of my goals and ideas. That way I can either celebrate with you at the end of August when I've accomplished my dreams, or have this wonderful outlet to express all of the wonderful excuses I may come up with for why not even super woman could have done what I set out to do.

The realistic goals:
Read all the books on the Newbery award list (realistically, I'll feel accomplished if I've read all the ones published since the year of my birth... there's a lot of books on that list!)
Actually get through all of my projects (meaning the big pile of fabric that I bought with a specific project in mind)
Make seasonal pillow slipcovers for fall and Christmas

The very optimistic goals:
Decorate said HOUSE
Get all of our Christmas shopping/crafting done

And in celebration of this summer and the wonderful things we will do, here are a couple of pictures of my partner in crime and me (she is accountable for these goals too, its only fair.)

One goal DREAM that will be accomplished in about 2 weeks: We're going to DISNEYLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
