Summer 2017 is almost here! This year I finally sat down and made a bucket list and am sharing it with you to hold me accountable. I always try to savoy every moment of beautiful warm weather and being off in the Summer. I know I’ll try new recipes, lay by the pool, and explore new restaurants so I wanted to come up with other Summer Fun. I’ve already done the important things like check that I don’t need AC repair from someone like Mr. Quik (mrquikhomeservices.com/indianapolis/hvac/ac-repair/) – the last thing I would want would be for the unit to break down when the sun is blazing hot, so I figured it was better to check it sooner rather than later. No problems to report, which was a relief! Below is my own personal list, but I hope it can give you some ideas if making your own. So if you are looking to completely reinvent your garden for summer or get it ready for a garden party, you may want to look into services like Trugreen CT, as well as furniture websites so you are fully prepared.
Girls Trip. My college girlfriends and I are planning a trip to Chicago in August. I can’t wait to see them and celebrate two engagements!
Wine Tasting and Picnic. Running Hare and Ingleside are our favorite local Vineyards. I love tasting, then sharing a bottle and snacks.
Ice Cream. Just eat lots of ice cream 😉
Make a new Summer Cocktail. I have a long list of Drinks on my Pinterest Board I’ve never made.
Read. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
Host a Brunch. I love making breakfast food and have always wanted to have friends over for a Boozy Brunch.
Sunrise Yoga. I’ve seen a few Classpass classes I hope to take advantage of this Summer.
Visit Mom and Dad in Cleveland. And Mom wants to go zip lining.
Make a Pinterest Craft. I have zero crafts pinned, so I need to do some research.
Go to the Beach. Hoping to visit my sister in California and then maybe a weekend trip to Ocean City, MD.
Visit a Museum. I’ve lived outside of DC for seven years and have only been to one Museum. I really want to go see the Newseum, Holocaust Museum, or the new African American History Museum.
Go on a Hike.
Go to the DC Zoo. Hello Pandas!
Try a New Workout Class. I still need to try Orangetheory Fitness and I’m hoping my sister will take me to Barry’s Bootcamp when in CA.
Go to an Amusement Park. I grew up in Cleveland and loved the thrill of Cedar Point rides, but I would settle for any park. I just love roller coasters.
Do a Full House Cleaning. Like hands and knees scrub the floor, wipe the baseboards, etc.
Finish Decorating my Office. I just need to hang some things on the wall and figure out an easy set up for my photography.
Play Mini Golf.
Brunch and Baseball Game. Has to be both together, brunch then afternoon baseball.
Truck-A-Roo. DC Food Truck Festival.
Host a BBQ. Especially since Tom has mastered smoking ribs, chicken, and pork. We really need to have some friends over. There are some great charcoal grills out there if you haven’t bought one yet, I suggest reading some background on them, such as the Weber charcoal grill reviews these can help you to pick the one that suits you!
Learn More and Practice Photography.
Make Homemade Grilled Pizzas.
Go Strawberry Picking.
Bake and Decorate a Cake. Then eat cake 😉
Plant a Herb Garden. Usually I do basil, cilantro, and parsley. Honestly, I cannot wait to spend more time in our garden this summer! I just hope that we do not encounter any pesky termites this year. Last year a nasty termite infestation almost ruined our lawn! However, fortunately, our friends told us all about pest control companies like terminix pest control and so we were able to get rid of the termites for good. Garden pests can be such a pain sometimes…
Do something on this Dating Bucket List I found while doing research for this Summer Bucket List. How fun are some of these?
Rooftop Happy Hour.
Attend a Cooking Class.
All You Can Eat Crabs.
Also do things on my Birthday Bucket List.
