Summer Bucket List

on June 25, 2012

Jolene recently posted a summer bucket list and I thought “Man! I need to do that”. So, after days of procrastination – here it is. 🙂

Summer Bucket List

1. Eat watermelon ~ I know this is weird but I hate it and I need to embrace it.

2. Hike Mount Monadnock w/ Stasia

3. barre n9ne rundate (but I’ll walk)…I have been saying I’ll do this for a while. 2 miles in 45 mins is totally doable! I need to do it!

4. Find restaurants with outdoor eating and enjoy it as much as possible! Every fall I look wistfully at pictures of people eating outside and enjoying fresh air and think  “Dammit why didn’t I do that!”.

5. See as much fireworks as possible. I ❤ fireworks! I’m committed to Danvers and I will drive anywhere to see a good show! Where is your favorite?

6.  Explore Boston. I used to go into the city all the time when I was in college- now it’s been ages. Time to venture into the city!

7. ROADTRIP!! I love roadtrips and it’s been way too long. I’m thinking Maine, maybe New Jersey- someplace close but different. 🙂

8. Foxwoods / Mohegan Sun trip- I’m not a huge gambler but I do love the occasional casino trip with potential for fancy dinners (like at craft – *swoon*)

9. Visit SOWA (and scope food trucks like Roxy’s Grilled Cheese) – who wants to come?!

10. Rock capris. I have come to terms with my ugly legs-  but at least once this summer I am going to wear capris. In public. Pictures will not be taken. LOL.

11. Walk the entire lake @ Wakefield – Lake Quannapowitt. 3.2 miles of lovely breeze and sunshine!

    awesome list!! I LOVE eating outside at restaurants — my fave place to do that these days is on the waterfront in Salem, at Finz is a PERFECT spot for it. Right on the water, its gorgeous. Or make it your own and picnic it up in the park somewhere instead. Equally lovely 🙂

    There’s a groupon, or one of those other coupon sites, for Mohegan Sun. Its for nights Sun-Thursday, but I heart slot machines, so I’ll definitely go!

    You can totally rock the rundate in 45 mins. AND the lake. I love those two goals/bucket list items for the summer! Great list!!

    Just love #4. Every year I tell my husband I am going to write a list of all the restaurants in our area with patios, so we have a reference for when we go out to eat. To me, there is not much better than dining outside when the weather is fabulous!

    If you’re heading to NJ, you might as well stop by Philly…it’s prettier anyway 🙂
