Summer Bucket List

June 3, 2015

(Totally inspired by Laura Vanderkam, which is not unusual around these parts.  Also: review of her new book will be in a post in the next few days!)

Take family vacation to NC (Yes, we miss Durham that much!)*
Host a pool party (or, less ambitious, pool play-date)
Visit the library monthly
Make water play of some kind a regular weekend occurrence
Take Annabel to a movie
Celebrate Father’s Day with something fun
Visit Josh’s grandmother at least every other weekend
Go out for ice cream (or frozen treat of choice)
Take both kids to the beach (We live a mile away.  We never go.  I know!)
Capture at least one pic of all 4 of us

Try this pizza place.  (I know, not paleo.  But from what I’ve heard it will be a worthwhile exception.)
Have a few Thursday date nights where we work late and then meet up for dinner.
Go to a movie (we have not been since before A was born!)*
Host a (medium-sized) party (wine-tasting?)

Just Me
Read at least 6 books: 3 novels & 3 nonfiction
Girls weekend with lots of relaxation and fun*
Keep phone minutes under 60/day for as many days as possible
Train for a fall 5K (& sign up for the fall 5K)
Try out the whole ‘capsule wardrobe’ concept.  Or at least explore it.
Attempt to do barre (online or Flybarre) 2x/week, every week
Buy a new swimsuit (perhaps on sale?).  (We’re in the pool enough to justify one per year, and I haven’t gotten one yet in 2015)

* = already on the calendar

    Oh, to live a mile from the beach! I like the girls’ weekend one. That sounds awesome…
