Summer Bucket List

All you need are some friends, a few sunny days, and you'll be set this summer with this fun mix of indoor and outdoor things to do this summer // #summer #bucketlist

I'm not sure why I called this the adventurer's summer bucket list, because, um, hello, there's an "inside" category here. So clearly not as wild as the graphic above may suggest. ðŸ˜‰  This year I'm choosing to focus on all the fun things there are to do instead of the fact I'm just going to get more and more pregnant and thus sweaty #SweatFest2017. Let's move on.

Things to do this summer...

  1. Make greek yogurt strawberry popsicles--I can't wait to try Sam from Elah Tree's recipe (pictured below*)!
  2. Girls night DIY cocktail party (I'll be making this and the rest of you can drink this)
  3. Try a bright new nail polish & lipstick
  4. Plant something new...or plant something new outside!


  1. Visit 2+ beaches: Ocean City, NJ & Stone Harbor, NJ are on my list!
  2. Watch the sun rise one morning 
  3. Outdoor girls only movie night! (Someone you know has to have a projector, right?)
  4. Host a last-minute/low-key/for-no-reason  get together and use Beth's tips for pulling it off!
  5. Read an easy beach read...lounging in your back yard or by the pool! (Jacqui's got good suggestions here*)
  6. Plan a friendcation--I've never gone on one but camping would be an easy, inexpensive getaway! Now who wants to come with?! **Edit Summer 2018: we had a friend-staycation and it was SO fun!!**
  7. Bonfire, of course. Do you even know me? Obviously this would be on my list ðŸ˜‰ 
  8. Hike a new trail (and by "hike" I mean "casually stroll" #hellosecondtrimester)
  9. Float in a fun pool floatie (like this donut one!)
  10. Low-key picnic with friends or family (check out these summer picnic essentials)

What are you hoping to do this summer? What are some beach reads you're adding to your list?
