Monthly Rewind ~ August

Posted September 2, 2016 by Michelle in Monthly Rewind / 6 Comments


Rewind August & What to expect in September:

My thoughts for next year is I think the month of August I will be taking off. I accomplished nothing this month and did a whole lot of whining because I just couldn’t seem to shake a severe anxiety attack. I am feeling much better now and I think the kids going back to school is a big plus. I have plans and posts to work on now that I get my Friday’s back to do blog and design work.

I am currently working on a few designs but the bigger news is I got a domain name and a website for Limabean Design. It’s not set up yet because now I am trying to figure out how I want it to look. Of course this is my major downfall. This might take a little bit of time as I figure it all out. LOL the mind of a designer when doing her own stuff is always total confusion! 🙂

My reading sucked this month and I am hoping to just push that aside and spend this month give my shelf all the love it deserves. I got so many great books from BEA and I haven’t had a chance to read many of them so I plan to get to that this month and have those reviews up a little after they release. I am excited to get reading since I think most of my slump was forcing myself to read books I need to, instead of reading books I wanted to.

What I Reviewed:

Favorite Book This Month:


This was a really had review to write because it has so much going on in this book. Nothing of what I expected but was everything I would want in a really good book. I can’t wait for this one to come out and everyone gets to experience it. It was REALLY good and totally messed me up!


How did you do this month?

Have a Great Day and Happy Reading!

    Eh, that wasn’t so bad. Besides, we all need breaks. Taking next August as planned time off sounds like a good idea. Now, read something for fun! That’s what I’m working on, then back to review reading.

  2. I had the worst reading month ever. I got nothing finished and didn’t read for 3/4 of the month. Perhaps I’ll take next August off as well. Good luck with your site for Limabean! That is exciting!

  3. Stop stressing lady 😉 I’ve practically taken a year or more off, showing up randomly for a year. And somehow I’m still afloat and I feel like I’m finally coming back for reals! *knocks on wood* you can’t fully take August off unless we’re changing COYER, but I totally get stepping away from your blog when its just going to stress you out. Welcome back to routine, I’m sure things are rally going to step up for you now 🙂

  4. You did great all things considered. 🙂 This reminds me I need to find time to do my own August Monthly report..geesh…starting work at the end of a month plus school is no good for bloggers…lol. 🙂
