It’s Summer in Chicago. Finally. Am I right?! Those cold mornings and dewy afternoons paid off. March, April, and May showers bring June flowers? Is that how it goes? Anyways, I’m in nice weather mode from here on out. The shorts have been purchased and sandals are the only shoes I’ve been wearing. With Summer comes adventure though and I’m totally ready for some serious exploring.
Last year, I made a huge bucket list full of things I knew I had to complete before those months were over. Not to say I completed everything on that list, but a large majority was crossed off. I plan to do the same this season and wanted to share my plans with all of you! Some are more extreme than others so bear with me here.
1. Swim In The Ocean
In a few short weeks I’ll be headed back to Florida for a long vacation with the hubby. I was just in Orlando after Christmas time but didn’t get to enjoy any of those gorgeous Florida beaches or swim in the sea. So, this time around, I’m doing it.
2. Fish In The Ocean
Speaking of Florida, when I’m there I think it would be outside of my comfort zone to try fishing. I’ve fished in lakes before, for small fish…very small fish. But never anything bigger than my hand. I don’t have to necessarily “catch” anything, it would just be an experience to check off.
3. Grow My Blog Following
My blog is considerably new. This winter I ended up taking my social media platforms more seriously and began to gain a following on multiple channels. But that stuff is hard to keep up with and sometimes I slip up on posting and creating. This summer, I want to focus more on finding my path in the blogging world.
4. Go Cliff Jumping
There’s something exciting about heights and facing your fears. Super anxious to cross this one off my list. Can’t wait to find a pretty place to jump, take pics, and enjoy the Summer weather.
5. Start Real Estate Schooling
Surprise! Ya girl wants to go back to school! Specifically, for real estate. I know, I know it sounds absolutely insane. But it’s something different, new, and rewarding! Let’s hope I follow through with this new found career path.
6. Run A 5k
I’ve been obsessed with running lately. This Summer, I’d love to try a 5k in the city or a cool obstacle course type thing. Really for no other reason but to say “I did that”. Ya know?
7. Start A Garden
I’ve begun my test for a green thumb by adding a couple house plants to my living room. So far, no good. With that said though, maybe things will be different in the real outdoors. It would be neat to plant some fresh flowers and watch the colors grow.
8. Try All The Halo Top Flavors
My lover, my life, my shawty, my wife. I eat a ton of that stuff. Can you blame me though?! It’s delicious and much better for you than regular ice cream. A few months ago, Halo Top released 10 new flavors. I’ve only tried 3 out of those 10 flavors! Needless to say, this bucket list item will be crossed off before Summer’s end.
Now it’s your turn! What are you Summer to-do’s? I want to know! Leave a comment down below or tell me on my other social media platforms. Let’s share our plans and try new things!
