My Summer Bucket list

Every so often I like to stray from the preschool subject matter and share just a little bit of myself (although preschool is definitely a part of me) with all of you.  So I thought I would share my bucket list for this summer! I have to be honest for a minute and tell you that it was hard to come up with 10 fun things that I want to do this summer – and I think that’s a little sad, so I’m making it my mission to seek out fun experiences!

  1. Go camping – Technically I can check this one off, we went camping with friends a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve got at least two more camping trips planned and I can’t wait!
  2. Have a patio party – We’re finally building a deck (after nearly nine years in our house) and I can’t wait to finish it so that we can have a party!
  3. Enjoy the sunset – This is hands-down my favorite thing to do in the summer. I am always happy to sit in the backyard and watch the sun go down. 
  4. Read! – I’ve been making extra time for reading, it’s usually what I do while watching the sun go down.  If that’s not a great way to unwind, I don’t know what is. 
  5. Eat too much ice cream – To be honest, I’m not sure that’s even possible. Is there such a thing as too much ice cream? I’m happy to visit my favorite ice creams stores – I’d do it every day if I could – and I want to make a few batches of homemade ice cream too. 
  6. Bake cookies – I haven’t had time to make my famous decorated sugar cookies since Christmas and I’m in need of some sugar therapy.
  7. Spend the day outside – The older I get the more I love being outdoors.  I’ve got a few days on my calendar that will be spent entirely outside and I can’t wait to soak up all of that vitamin D.
  8. Movie marathon – This is the exact opposite of spending the day outside, but I fully intend to spend an entire day in the air conditioning doing nothing but watching movies. 
  9. Go to a concert – I’m always in for a concert, I don’t have one planned yet, but I’m dying to find a good one. It’s not summer without a concert. 
  10. Get a mani-pedi – This is honestly one of my favorite things in the world, but I don’t indulge often. I love looking forward to it almost as much as actually having it done.
