I’ve seen posts like this on a couple of blogs ( Nick & Nereyda’s Infinite Booklist and Lindsay’s Library are the ones I can remember) I wanted to make a list of things I hope to get to do this summer – non bookish. A lot of these are things are things to be done with the kids but some are just for me.
Go to the Beach
I am lucky enough to live only 15 minutes from the beach and plan to spend some serious time there this year. Now that the kids are a bit older it is a much less daunting task to take them. Plus look how pretty my beaches are 🙂
This is one I am afraid won’t happen. My husband isn’t big on it and my kids don’t have the stamina for a long hike. Hopefully I can talk him into it and leave the kids with the grandparents. We have a lot of great places by me to hike so I would love to get out at some point
Go to the Zoo and Aquarium
This is something we do every year and I love it as much as the kids. They love all the animals and fish and we always have a good day.
Binge watch: The Good Fight, Bloodline, Shameless, Wentworth
If you have been to my blog at all you know I love TV and a good binge. I want to fit in a couple of shows this summer. I really want to watch The Good Fight since I loved The Good Wife but I hate that it would be shelling out more money for CBS All Access. The others are all on Netflix so I am sure I will get to them.
Have a Barbecue
We used to have more with friends but I am hoping we can squeeze in a barbecue this summer at our house. We have a good yard to keep all the kids busy while us adults can just hang out. But as we get older it seems to be harder and harder to get a date where everyone can get together.
Go to a Yankees Game
This picture is from a game my husband got to go to this year with work. He had awesome seats and I am jealous. I haven’t been to a game in almost 4 years. That needs to change. We used to go to at least a couple a season but then kids.
Find Time to Knit More
I started to knit this year and I love it. Unfortunately I just haven’t had time. I really hope to make some and sit down and finish that damn scarf I started!
Clean Out My House
Yeah this isn’t super fun but I need to do it. I have been putting off doing a major clean out but my house is packed with junk. My husband is not the type to get rid of stuff so it is on me. I love purging stuff so when he is at work and the kids are at camp I plan on going room by room, closet by closet to declutter our lives.
Go to a Country Concert
Last year I went to my first country concert and loved it. Since then I have become a country fan. I really want to get to a concert this year and am working on getting tickets.
