Puzzles & Parks - My Summer Bucket List!

Apparently the thing to do around blog-world this summer is make a summer bucket list. So of course, y'all know I just had to jump on that bandwagon! I mean, hello? Summer is my absolute favorite season. (Thanks Florida for basically an 8-month summer!) And obviously I'm a sucker for a good list or two, or three, or forty-five... And so the two together? Summer and a list? I just had to! And now without any further ado or rambling, I introduce you to my...

2013 Summer Bucket List!

1. Go tubing at Bear Paw
2. Go to a country concert - preferably outdoors!
3. Visit a new beach in Florida with Jeff
4. Buy fruits and veggies from the farmer's market
5. Go antique shopping and to the flea market
6. Ride 75 miles on my bike
7. Go on a picnic in a park
8. Complete another thing from my 30 Before 30 list
9. Eat at 3 new restaurants that have outdoor seating
10. Clean out under my bed
11. Actually start training for the 5K, with the C25K app
12. Find a place for Jeff and I to live! (and move in!)
13. Clean out under my bathroom sink
14. Take the boys to a water park
15. Plan, decorate & cook for family dinner one week
16. Keep learning the ukulele
17. Create a giant pot of succulents (once in my new house)
18. Purge & donate some of my clothes and shoes
19. Complete a 1,000 piece puzzle
20. Do some more Pinterest crafts
21. Make a really awesome summer playlist
22. Try Geo-Caching, finally!
23. Make something cute for Megan and Bo's new house
24. Build a sandcastle at the beach with the boys

The "time-frame" for this will officially be starting this weekend, for Memorial Day Weekend. And even though summer is usually considered to be over by Labor Day, I'm extending this through the end of September, because summer weather in Florida can really last through Thanksgiving sometimes... So I might as well take advantage of that. So I'm starting this weekend, and I'll get to cross things off all the way through September!

Between all of these activities and things to do, and also planning a wedding for October, we're sure going to be super busy! But I'm just excited about going out and doing more things! Life is so much more fun when you make a real effort to do fun things and enjoy your time. So that's exactly what I plan on doing over the next few months :)

Did you make a summer bucket list? Do you want to? I think we all should! Doesn't it just sound like so much fun?!

Looks like a fun and productive list :) I suspect much of the cleaning and purging will be crossed off when you find a place to move to!! Ummm, I feel silly asking this, but what is geo-caching?

I did this last year - guess it's time to update!
ok where in fl are you? I'm headed to orlando and south next week. I'm guessing you're north of there though, right? my parents live in boynton beach, so that's the farthest south we're going!

You should do a caverns tour! It's 65 degrees in the caves year round!

Great list! I did this recently over on Erin's blog. I only did a handful of things, but I'm also trying to rapidly finish up my 30 before 30 list since I hit the big 3-0 in late July. :)
