summer bucket list

I'm not even sure what day is the official first day of summer, but you guys, the other night we kept Mia up past her bed time, met up with some of our best friends here in town and stuffed our faces with "gourmet" sno cones. It was such a beautiful night and a perfect kick off to an amazing summer! What I'm trying to say is... summer is officially here in my opinion :) I fell in love with summer time in a new way last year as I spent my days with Mia, and we had the BEST time! It will be hard to beat, but I know this year will be even better! I have quite the list of things I want to do with my little family this summer so why not make a bucket list?!

1- Make homemade popsicles... successfully! I'm really excited to try out a lot of different recipes. Healthy, yummy treats? Heck yes!

2- Pull out the chalk and see if Mia is interested in coloring the sidewalk. I'm pretty sure that should keep her occupied for 2.5 minutes ;)

3- The three S's... swim, sprinklers, splash pad. As often as possible!

4- Hike on the days that aren't too hot.

5- Go to Vegas and stay at Tahiti Village and enjoy a little family getaway with Eric and Mia!

6- De-junk every room in our home... because this one TOTALLY didn't happen even though it was on my spring bucket list. My bad!

7- Go to Lagoon and enjoy some family time... and let myself (and my family) eat as much junk food as we can handle, guilt free! Hopefully pain free as well ;) Ain't nobody got time for bloating pains!

8- Cross items off my 27 before 27 list!

9- Try a new hairstyle in my hair once a week.... because I've become so gosh darn lazy with my hair. I might as well do fun stuff while I have all this hair on my head, right? I also want to start having more fun with Mia's hair and painting her nails :)

10- Go on my first girls trip, sans baby's! I'm nervous to leave Mia behind but it's time to rip that band aid off! Plus I know Eric and Mia will have so much fun together, just the two of them!

I need to do a bucket list! You've inspired me!!

Also, your most recent comment made me feel so much better. Not that I wish teething like this one anyone else, but it's nice to know I'm not the only one at my wit's end! Please let both our little girlies' teeth just get here and FAST!!

PERFECT list, mama! I need to do a todder-less vacay too but it totally scares me!

Kimberly said...

SO MUCH FUN STUFF!! We tried the splash pad last week and my kids were NOT in to it. I think we need to go again with dad so he can get them warmed up to the idea :)

Also, I didn't get my dejunking done during spring either! I got the garage and Olivia's room done. Axel's room is so bad I don't even know where to start, but that's what we're tackling today!

I love this bucket list. I especially love the painting of the lil one's nails. I already want to paint my 9 month old niece's nails but she doesn't sit too still right now unless she's sleeping...maybe that's when I'll get her. Tee hee!

Hannah said...

I love this list! I might have to try and do some of these for us. And I love that summer is here; what a great way for summer to start for you - "gourmet" sno cones are the best things ever!

We kept Aubrey up way past her bedtime for ice cream and snuggles on the couch while watch Frozen for the billionth time! It's going to be such a great summer. These little really make everything so much more fun:)

Danielle said...

Yes to the chalk! Except I already know what will happen. Milo will eat it.

Ashley Hunt said...

Lauren said...

great list! Oh how I would love to plan and go on a girls' trip...even if it was just an overnight outing it'd be nice to getaway with my girlfriends for a bit!

Best list ever!!! Summer starts on the 21st I do believe though, just in case you wanted to make it official =) But, imo if it feels like summer close enough! And, in FL it has felt like summer for a few months.

Love #6! mmmm junk food days! A girls trip - awesome. I'm hoping to partake this fall.

Heather Leigh @ Like a Morning cup of coffee said...

mmm now I want a snow cone. Those memories are the ones that last a life time :)

Lauren W said...

Love your list! I definitely need to make one of these for myself! :)

Sarah said...

Tawnya Faust said...

Great bucket list! I have been meaning to do one for us but I NEVER follow through so I've kind of botched the idea! I'm loving reading everyone elses though! You should post your Popsicle recipe, I've been wanting to try some new ones out this summer!
