Sweet Summertime...

Only TWO more sleeps until its officially Summer y'all! I know for a lot of people the weather has already been feeling like Summer for weeks (if not months) and school has been out for awhile but in this little corner of SE Sask we have only had a handful of nice weather days that made it feel like Summer had arrived early, and school doesn't let out for the Summer until June 26th for most of the tiny humans. The one week countdown for that is on! I LOVE Summer. It's my favourite season. If it weren't for Christmas and Halloween (my two favourite holidays) occuring during other seasons I would want it to be Summer all year round.
In 2013 & 2014 I made Summer Bucket Lists, filled with things I wanted to see/do throughout the Summer months. This year is no exception but the difference is that this year I want to cross every single item off my list. In 2013 I had a tonsillectomy and adedoidectomy at the beginning of August, which had a 4 week recovery period afterwards, meaning not much got crossed off my list. Last year I didn't do as bad as the year before but there will still a lot of things not crossed off at the end of September. This is the busiest Summer I've had since 2012, when I traveled to NYC/Pennsylvania and was a bridesmaid in a wedding, but I'm embracing the busy and can't wait to get crossing things off the list!

What's on YOUR Summer Bucket List?


  1. Sounds like it'll be a great summer! I've always wanted to go to a drive-in movie. Pizza sandwiches over a campfire sound drool-worthy!

  2. Ah man, that is a late summer, but I don't get a summer as a grown up adult so yours still sounds better. :) We are going to Canada next week and it's supposed to be in the 70's (F) the whole time...I'm bringing a jacket! Happy Friday!

  3. I made a huge bucket list last summer with my two best friends and it was great to refer to on those days when the dreaded "I don't know, what do you want to do?" conversations happened. We could refer to the list and easily have something to do!
