Summer is halfway over and I feel like it's going way too fast! Between added responsibilities at work and taking on other responsibilities in life, I've lost track of making fun moments!
It's like, who am I?
I've decided I need to carpe summer asap. Here's my list of summer goals:
Wear flip flops - what the? I haven't worn flip flops once yet this summer! My feet are demanding freedom from their shoe prisons!
Swim swim swim - I'll be at Lake Michigan soon and I can't wait to dive into that icy cold water and splash away my problems.
Continue watching Big Brother - guys, I don't even care that this is embarrassing. This show is so, so good and it's only on in the summer so it feels very summerish to me. 24 hour surveillance, paranoia, fun personalities, competitions, etc. Oh my gosh, I love this show. If you watch it, let me know - I have so much to say about this season!
Make zucchini bread from zucchini I grew in my garden. I was feeling good about the little zucchini I grew until my cousin brought me a zucchini from my aunt and uncle's garden. I'll let you guess which is which. Sigh.
Be outside more. Bike more, walk more, sit outside and watch fireflies in the evening. Doesn't that sound divine?
Experiment with s'mores. Here's what I know makes a good s'more so far (not together, necessarily): Reeses peanut butter cups, nutella, cookie butter from Trader Joe's, strawberry marshmallows, peanut butter. I've tried other candy bars but I forget which... I need to get all this information documented. I can't emphasize enough how important mastering the perfect s'more is for the human race.
Take in the summer smells. I need more summer smells in my life. I am so bored with the smells I've been smelling lately. They're all the same! I need more lake water, sunscreen, bbq's, cut grass, chlorine, and campfires. My nose is craving those smells.
Watch a movie outdoors - I'll be real with you, this almost always sounds better than it is but it's still fun and makes for good memories to live off of in winter.
I'm sure I'll think of more summer goals but for now, this is where I'll start. What about you? What are some things you still want to do this summer?
