30 in 30 Results

Well, if you were to give me a grade on my 30 in 30 list, you would have to give me a big, fat F! Whomp, whomp! I set the bar high, I jumped to reach it and then did a face plant, metaphorically speaking. But, even with a failing grade on my list, I had a wonderful year as a 30 year old! Here’s what the list looks like today:

30 in 30 list

15 and 2/3 out of 30 isn’t too bad, right? Hah! My prideful self is having a hard time admitting I failed at my list, but I’m excited to keep working to finish it as a 31 year old! I have a few of these items already in progress and I’ll keep posting as I finish them! Thanks for following me on my journey. This list was my main reason for starting this little ole blog and I’m so thankful that I did!

Summer Bucket List

While it’s not “officially” Summer until Memorial Day, (Well, actually it’s not official until June 21st, but seriously, no one really starts Summer then!) we are having the unofficial start today because the pool opens! I was a life guard at a community pool for six summers and the pool always opened on Memorial Day weekend. However, in Georgia pools open earlier and we are excited to get a jump on our pool time!

Like most of us, I’m a creature of habit. I usually find us spending our days playing legos, reading books, baking and running errands with a weekly trip to the library. However, I want Summer to be fun! I want it to be different. When I was growing up, my mom was a teacher and had Summers off. She always had fun things for us to do and it was magical! I want to share that same fun, Summer spirit with Luke and have it be different than the rest of the year.

To make sure we don’t fall in to our normal routine, I made a Summer Bucket List for our family. Of course I made a list; I’m the list queen! Jacob may or may not have rolled his eyes when I asked him to contribute to said list. He’s more of a “fly by the seat of his pants” kind of guy which compliments my love of list making quite well. So, Luke and I had a little brainstorm session and came up with 19 activities we want to do this summer. I’m not going to stress out about getting these items marked off, although I do love to cross things off a list! I just want to have a list of fun things to do when we start getting stuck in a routine this Summer.Screen Shot 2015-05-15 at 7.59.46 AM

You can definitely tell which items I added: learn Mommy’s phone number and Summer reading program, and which items Luke added: bake cookies, have a sleepover with cousins and go fishing. What’s on your Summer Bucket List?
