Anyone else having a hard time believing we’re already in July, and half way through 2016? *all hands raise* Okay, glad I’m not alone. If you’re a regular reader of Very Erin, you might have noticed that I didn’t post my monthly goals post at the beginning of June. To be perfectly honest, I thought it would be pointless. Sure, I could have come up with a few goals I wanted to meet in June. But really, I knew I wouldn’t. We purchased our first home in June, attending two weddings (we each stood up in one), and spent the remainder of the month packing up our apartment and unpacking in our home. That was my priority in June, and I knew accomplishing much more would be a long shot. And that’s okay, because #priorities. But the last week or two I’ve been back at it in full force on the blog and biz and have been making tons of plans for the next couple of months, which brings me to my goals for July.

Goals for July
Blog and Biz | Complete eCourse
A couple months back, I purchased an eCourse knowing I wouldn’t get to it until after the move. I’ve finally made a dent in it, and I’m officially obsessed. I’ve mentioned on this blog before that one of my biggest goals for 2016 is to launch an eBook. So when Abby and Donnie Lawson launched their Book Boss course, I just couldn’t pass it up! They’re incredible teachers, so it hasn’t been hard to zoom through the content. Though I’m sure I’ll rewatch many parts of the course as I make my way further and further through eBook creation.
If you’re interested in writing an eBook, I super recommend checking out their course for yourself!
Blog and Biz | Launch New Shirts in Etsy Shop
I’ve already got a few shirts listed in the Etsy shop, but I’ve been excitedly working on a bunch more and I’m so pumped to share them with you guys! I love them even more than the shirts already in there, so stay tuned.
Blog and Biz | Set Up Ambassador Program
One of my big goals for my Etsy shop this month is to set up an ambassador program to spread the word about the shop! I’m going to be looking to partner with bloggers who rock Instagram, so stay tuned if this is something you might be interested in! I’ll probably be opening it up for my graphic tees, coffee mugs, and notepads, so there’s room for all kinds of niches!
Personal | Finish Unpacking and Organizing
As I’ve mentioned approximately 10,000 times on the blog in the last few months, Dave and I bought a house! We officially closed and moved on June 14. It’s been a crazy busy few weeks since then. And while most of the house is unpacked and mostly put together, we’ve got some hurdles left. For example, my office is 100% still in boxes. At this moment it’s basically just a room with a desk, elliptical, 5 huge boxes, and Winnie the Pooh characters on the wall. Yeah, we haven’t painted yet either.
We also have nothing on our walls just yet, because all of our decor is still sitting in boxes too. But I promise as soon as it’s all put together, I’ll be sharing tons of pictures!
Personal | Get Back to Date Nights
Thanks to the fact that buying a house is super expensive, date nights haven’t been as common in the Erin and Dave household. I really want to get back in the habit of them, especially now when it’s so dang nice out! We could use some recommendations, so leave your favorite date night activity in the comments!
