May 2011


Don’t ask what the meaning of life is. You define it. – That’s what my YES&YES Calendar says for the Month of May.

I failed miserably last month with my goals. I failed to the point where I’m not going to bother recapping them. I’ve been sick or distracted for the entire month of April.

This month is going to be filled with a lot of unfamiliar things, so instead of setting specific goals for myself, I am going to set vague ideas.

Balance. I need to work on it, I’ve always needed to work on it. But this month I’m going to pay special attention to balance because without it I slip away from myself.

Health. Working out just hasn’t been… working out. But that’s not something I’m going to give up on. I think I just need to be more structured when it comes to exercise. And also I’ve been toying with the idea of cutting sugar almost entirely out of my diet. This may be the time to put that into action, or if not, at least plan to make that work for June.

Write. Oh that five letter word that is always on my mind. There’s nothing more to say about this, it all goes back to balance. Make time to make writing part of my life.

Also, the weather is beautiful, the sun is shining and I want to spend as much time as possible outside and soaking in Vitamin D.

May Events:
May 2nd is Miranda’s birthday.
May 6th is Hanson day. Let’s remember the times we wore Hanson t-shirts to school and secretly hummed Mmmbop all day. Just me? Oh, okay.
May 13th & 14th are bachelorette party/ kidnapping nights.
May 18th Miss Sarah Day turns 26.
May 19th Shaylin’s rehearsal dinner
May 20th ladies luncheon, getting nails did, hanging out in a fancy hotel, taking multiple bubbly baths and hosting a two person dance party.
May 21st Shaylin’s wedding. Maybe I should schedule in a day to write a toast. Eeek! Anyway, lots of dancing and wine and photographs and an after party. And an after after party. Generally just a lot of partying.
May 22nd I don’t know, I think I’m going to want to go out for breakfast.
May 23rd- May  31st probably 216 straight hours of sleep. Sounds good to me.

What does your May look like?

  1. My May also needs to have some balance worked in!! I totally agree with you about scheduling you time, it’s important!! Working out is on the top of my list-I need to do it more…no excuses just need to do it!! Cutting out sugar sounds painful and ambitious but if anyone can do it, you can! I don’t know my May actually looks like but I would love to camp at least twice, May 14th we are going to our friends wedding (eek I love weddings!!) May 15th we are celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary, May 17th Amy has something planned for me…a surprise…it’s a pretty exciting month and I look forward to it! I ❤ May

    • Tiffany, camping sounds great! I hope you have a great time! And a great anniversary! We should work out together sometime. Zumba maybe? Or I could try spinning .. haha

  2. I’m sorry that you didn’t do very well in April, but honestly I feel better knowing I’m not alone in how badly I did with accomplishing my goals. LOL @ May 2nd- you’ll probably be drunk off your ass at 4:30 am driving around (well, hopefully if you are drunk off your ass you will be a passenger) looking for a Denny’s or an IHOP for some fuckin’ pancakes.

    Sounds like you’ve got a busy busy but fun month ahead of you.

    • If we’re going to fail, at least we’re going to fail together, I guess? And May 22nd I will be drunk off my ass, hopefully not driving around looking for Dennys though.
