My Summer Bucket List

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Summer officially starts tonight once the solstice is here {I am a regular weather guru let me tell you}...popping up all over the blogs as of late are summer bucket lists and I thought it would be fun to participate, too! There is just so much going on that you want to make sure you take advantage... here are some of my items to tackle over the next few months!
  • Run a 5K
  • Make fun summer desserts: a cherry pie, lemonade cake, and peach pie bars just to name a few
  • Host a wine night for my girlfriends 
  • Read at least 5 books
  • Visit the Nashville zoo
  • Deep clean, declutter, and organize the house
  • Cook dinner at least 2 nights a week
  • Watch the Summer Olympics
  • Complete at least 3 crafts from Pinterest
  • Spend more time outdoors
  • Master a perfect sangria recipe
  • Finish decorating my office nook
  • Save money
  • Organize all my recipes into my recipe binder and box
  • Take time to relax and enjoy the season
  • Dropoff unused/old items to Goodwill
  • Read tutorials to get better at using my camera
  • Take a few daytrips to take in local sights and such
What all do you hope to accomplish these hot summer months?

  9. LOVE your list! The Nashville Zoo is nice, you can buy a membership that lasts for a year and you can go as many times as you want for free (after the one time fee). They just had a baby Giraffe born too! I would love to do Pinterest crafts too! Have a great day!

  13. I am sooo looking forward to watching the summer olympics! I can't wait for them to get underway :)

    We want to take a few day trips too; there is so much to explore within just a couple hours that I think it's easy to forget!

  15. This is a great list! I made one awhile ago. After reading yours I think I may have forgotten a few things though! And I want to run a half marathon. I've never run a race before, and think it would be so much fun. I've just recently stated exercising on a somewhat normal basis so that should help (hopefully)!

  18. That is a GREAT bucketlist!! I have some similar items on my list!! We are organizing/decluttering the house currently.

    I never thought it would be so time consuming but with a mobile baby, it SURE is!! I often think, what did I used to do with my time before Olivia? I can not say I have EVER been bored since her arrival! haha
