My sister was in town over the weekend to complete her first triathlon on Saturday.  I got up early Saturday morning to watch her swim, bike, and run before 9 am.  I always feel inspired after watching a race and hope to complete a triathlon next Summer.  She said she had a lot of fun and wants to do another one.  How much fun would it be for me and my sisters do one together?  Add it to the bucket list!

Saturday night the husband and I met up with her and her friend for dinner and drinks on the Southside.  I am not sure how long they lasted, but the husband and I started to fade pretty quickly so we headed back home early for a good nights rest and no early morning alarm clocks.  Sunday mornings might be my favorite.  Especially when they begin with a few thunderstorms and rain allowing me to get some things done around the house.  How was your weekend?

Even though Summer is almost over, I am feeling pretty motivated for August.  We have a few fun things planned on the calendar to look forward to to celebrate the end of a great Summer.
My goals for August:
Etsy: focus on selling my photos on Etsy.  I will share more about these photos soon.
Video: complete video I am making for my girlfriends before Mom heads back to school. 
Run:  run at least 2 miles, twice a week with a longer - 3+ mile - run one day. 
Blog: I will write and schedule posts.  Like I mentioned in this post, I have developed a blogging schedule for myself.  I am excited to implement it this month.  
Photograph: I have been in a funk with taking photos lately but this post from Taylor reminded me "the rush" I get when taking photos.

What are your goals for August?
Do you have anything exciting planned to celebrate the last full month of Summer?

Linking up with Melyssa, Molly, Leeann, Lisa, and Meg today!
