How’s everybody doinnnnn?!?! My summer has been rather chill.. though I have done/seen some exciting things!
I have seen “bucket lists” around Pinterest and on a few blogs, so I thought I would come up with one of my own in my never-ending free time. Hey, no complaints.
Seth and I went kayaking on Tuesday. We actually got caught in a storm (we originally thought we could beat it by a few hours) and had to pull out of the water for about 45 minutes. It was definitely an adventure and I can’t wait to go back. We agreed to go when there is a 0% chance.
2.) Paint at least one piece of furniture.
I have been pinning all kinds of awesome painted furniture on Pinterest and I hope to get my hands on a fun piece and add a pop-o-color to it!
3.) Eat at Heirloom Market BBQ one last time.
I went last week! It was awesome. Better than before, probably because I had a hardcore Crossfit workout that morning and I had missed it so dang much! I ate every last bite. #beast
4.) Do at least one unassisted pull-up at Crossfit DGA (before July 31.)
When I transfer schools in the Fall, I am also transferring Crossfit boxes. If everything works out as planned, I will have one last week at Crossfit DGA here at home during the last week of July. Hopefully, I will have that pull-up perfected!
5.) Run a 5k.
Whether it’s signing up for a road race or running it on my own, I hope to knock out 3 miles! It’s amazing how much Crossfit has increased my cardio endurance and I am able to knock out a little over a mile and a half with no problem. Did I mention, cardio is my weakness?! Even when I am in tip-top shape, I struggle with cardio.
6.) Make S’mores!
These are Martha Stewart’s S’mores cookies. Mmmmm
7.) Make this Peach Lemon Pound Cake.
Possibly for my peach-lovin’ daddio… Father’s Day is ten days away!
8.) Make these easy painted bottles for my new room!
9.) Frame a dollar store full-length mirror like this one.
10.) Pack a picnic!
Like a real picnic. In a cute basket and eaten under the sun on top of a blanket. Maybe I can even bring the s’mores cookies!
…. and just for fun- check out my friend’s, Maddie, little ham. Born on Friday, June 1!
peace and summer-y love. xoxoxox. Mindy
