Summer Wish List

In my opinion summer has been in full swing for almost a good month, but thanks to MamaKat I've been inspired to do a list of things I want to do this summer.  Some of it I've already done and I think that counts....right?

Create a bucket list of 50 things you want to do this summer.

1) Camp
2) Hike Mount Marcy (the highest peak in the Adirondacks)
3) Take a trip to Lake Placid
4) Get a tan
5) Visit a beach
6) Bike to Lake George
7) Get Cooper's Cave ice cream
8) See fireworks
9) Do some kind of volunteer work
10) Get summer pictures developed
11) Find a new job
12) Lose 15 pounds by my birthday
13) Take any birthday money I get and get a new digital camera
14) Take a picture every day
15) Run a mile without stopping
16) Bake
17) Canoe/Kayak
18) Swim
19) Sit around a fire with good friends
20) Grill
21) Go to the drive in
22) See the last Harry Potter IMAX style
23) Do some kind of outside activity every day that it isn't raining
24) Cancel my credit card before they charge me the outrageous annual fee
25) Put all babysitting money towards paying off said credit card
26) Visit a museum/tourist attraction
27) Paint my toenails either green or yellow (I stay away from these colors because I"m afraid people will think I have some kind of fungus, but there are some green and yellow polish that I LOVE!)
28) Go to the Cheesecake Factory
29) Do something with my porch like add some hanging plants or plant flowers in the boxes, so that I want to spend more time out there.
30) Get my final Forever Adirondack pin in Ticonderoga
31) Participate in an Adirondack Mountain Club function
32) Finally burn the collection of movies I have sitting on my computer and add them to my book
33) Spend a day going to garage sales
34) Read 3 books
35) Host a blog giveaway
36) Participate in a blog swap
37) Get some good BBQ
38) Make my pasta salad
39) Bike 100 miles in one month
40) Have a drink on the lake
41) Send more happy mail
42) Visit my aunts and uncle
43) Add pictures to my adventure journal
44) Visit a brewery I haven't gone to before
45) Get a haircut
46) Wear a dress
47) Make smore's OVER A FIRE (I have a gas stove and sometimes make them with those flames, haha)
48) Go to The Great Escape
49) Donate blood
50) Visit the track during track season

Phew - I'm a little overwhelmed looking at that list!  I'm not sure I can get it all done with work consuming my life by the minute and a lack of vacation and sick time, but wouldn't be amazing if I did?!

What do YOU want to do this summer?

Awesome list!!
I want to spend a day at the beach, go to Toronto to visit my cousins (especially the one who just had a baby!), go camping, and do something fun with my niece and nephew!

Ashley said...

Great list, Amber! It looks like a super awesome summer! So glad to see you aren't wasting time and already got started! You'll have to repost next month with new check offs! I hope you get to do most everything on your list!

sarajo said...

Great list! I think I would like to do most of those too! Only, I can't do IMAX Harry. It hurts my eyes. I'm just hoping to see it opening weekend.
I love summer! It's my favorite time of year!!

Andrea said...

That is an incredible list! With #4 due in Aug mine is much shorter.

stephanie said...

love the list! my only goal is to start working off this baby weight so I can actually fit into my clothes again. I'm only 2 weeks postpartum and already exhausted of nike shorts and tees :)

Miss S. said...

Wow girl-you have some list there! I bet you can do all of it too!

I can't wait to see the last HP, the Hub's & I make a date of it every time.

If you need any flower advice let me know-seriously I have the most ridiculously cheap & easy secret to lush flowers. All my neighbors constantly comment on my porch flowers & I just smile.

Nadine Hightower said...

I thought the same thing when I painted my toes yellow!! I love it but it did cross my mind!!

One good weekend and most of this can be done... so get with it!
And enjoy every bit of it ... even yellow toes!!

Miss Angie said...

Such a super awesome list, I love that you've done some of it already! We'll need to keep these updated! :)

Miss Angie said...

And when is your birthday?

Johanson Family said...

ooh! I love your list! It would be fun to collaborate with a few bloggers to create a similar list and set a deadline for the item-- take a picture of yourself doing it and post it!
what'a think?

Sunny said...

Ixy said...

Fire! That's what I forgot to put on my list! I love summer fires. OK, I swear I'm not a pyromaniac - really.

Vivian said...

Thank you for stopping by! I think bucket lists are the best...they keep you grounded and motivated. I'm working on so many things for this summer but I would have to say getting my legs toned again is on top of the list...after all you need them for dancing :)

What a great list & a good idea. I need to make a list like that =)
