bucket list.

Today I'm doing something a little different ... Instead of sharing what I'm currently loving, I'm linking up with Jillian over at Cornflake Dreams and sharing my Summer Bucket List. 

I think this is just the BEST idea ... After all, don't we all think that summer moves MUCH too quickly?! I know I do! 

So B and I made a Bucket List of sorts for all the things that we REALLY want to be sure to do this summer ... It's a good reminder to focus less on the ho-hum of everyday of life - bills, groceries, cleaning, etc - and to focus more on doing fun things that are just for us! :) 

Our Bucket List: 

~ read more: this one's actually all mine ... B hates to read! But I love too and really want to try to read as much as possible this summer ... less flipping channels and more flipping pages! 

~ visit Charleston: as much as we are loving our new home, we definitely both miss Charleston {I swear the city steals your heart} and we are so ready to visit again! 

~ book a vacation: we're hoping to take a vacation with some of our friends this Fall, but it seems that 'life' keeps getting in the way! I'm hoping that since it's on our Bucket List that we'll be sure to book ASAP! 

~ eat local: there's no better time to buy local veggies than the summer! and I plan to buy/cook/eat as many local products as possible this summer! 

~ start training: again, all me! I have been saying for a couple of years that I want to run a 1/2 marathon and I'm determined to start training and complete one THIS YEAR! 

So that's ours! What's on YOUR Bucket List?!

Happy Humpday Y'all!

Great list. I've been telling myself I want to train for a 1/2 marathon as well, but after moving to NC the humidity and hills will kill me! I'm going to do it, but maybe I'll wait a bit ;)

Eating local and reading more books are also on my summer to-do list (in addition to moving of course!) :)

Amanda @ New Adventures said...

I'm hoping to do a lot of reading too this summer! I have a big summer reading list I am working on now :)

Good luck with your half marathon training, I read this inspirational quote the other day about runners. It said The Hardest Step for a Runner is the First One Out of the Front Door. Just remember it is one step in front of another.
I am a runner too about 5 days a week and it is the first thing I do in the morning, it is my favorite way to start my morning.
Keep me posted with your running, looking forward to a post about you finishing a half marathon!
