Summer Bucket List

It's hard to believe that it's even time to start saying words like, "Summer" and "95 degrees" but holy crap- is it ever. This entire week is supposed to be above ninety and if that doesn't signal a season shift to Summer, I don't know what does. If this weather trend keeps up, we'll be picking fresh veggies from our garden in two weeks!

Yesterday, I was reading one of my other favorite blogger's "Summer Bucket List" and I got inspired to write one of my own. And plus, I love a list of any kind so this was right up my alley. So here are a few things I would like to get done this summer besides get heat rash.
  • Teach Beatrice Kate how to swim 
  • Begin reading my way through the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die (only 986 more to go!)
  • Lose 15 pounds (no really, I mean it this time)
  • Run a mile without stopping to walk
  • Get our grocery bill under $50/week and still eat healthy
  • Have dinner ready by the time Casey comes home
  • Eat dinner as a family
  • Teach Beatrice Kate how to pray
  • Attend church each Sunday that we're in town
  • Deep clean the house and keep it clean  picked-up each day!
  • Work out a realistic cleaning schedule to make it less work.
  • Sell this freakin' house.
  • Learn how to really use my new camera
  • Complete steps necessary to start attending births as a doula
  • Finish Beatrice Kate's baby book (actually, maybe this should say "Start" instead)
  • Start a weekly playgroup at our house
  • Do something out of the house each afternoon (after naps)
 So, it's lookin' like I'll be a little busy this summer. If you've got a summer list, I'd love to see what you're up to too!

  1. Seriously, Can you believe how hot it is this week? Your list is great. I should probably write something out. Have you introduced Beatrice Kate to the pool yet? We have been a couple of times so far and they like it! Good luck with your list!
