My Summer Bucket List

 Happy 4th of July!  While I managed to share a quick recap of how well I did with my spring bucket list before we left on vacation, I didn't really have time to put together my summer bucket list.  It's never too late to start though so here it is:

1. Go kayaking

2. Enjoy a weekend away with my husband for my birthday

3. Go birthday shopping with my mom

4. Get together with my college bestie

5. Visit our friends at their beachside summer rental

6. Visit another college (or 2!) with Alec

7. Paint again-- whether it's a canvas, a rock, some watercolors, I don't really care I just want to start painting something again.

8. Make macarons

9. Go strawberry &/or blueberry picking

10.  Go for a walk on the beach

11.  Try at least 2 new restaurants

12. Have friends & family over for a little cookout

13. Make ice cream

14. Squeeze in some summer hikes

15. Watch some fireworks

16.  Play cornhole

17. Play mini golf

18. Read a book while relaxing outside

19. Go to the movies

20. Watch the sunset (or sunrise!)

Since I did share this list a little later than usual it's funny that quite a few of these are already checked off my list! 

Linking up with:


  1. Happy 4th! Will be interested to read how you do on these when summer is over (though isn't that a sad thought?)...

    1. Oh that is such a sad thought (and I know it will be here before I am ready for it to end!).

  2. Happy 4th of July!
    What a great list, you have some great plans for the summer.

  3. You are already making great progress! Love it!

  4. Love your summer bucket list - what a great list of activities to try and do over the summer. #MMBC

  5. Love all of these things so much! I hope y'all get to the macarons this time! I'm interested to see how they turn out!

  6. That's a great summer bucket list! Also, I love going to the movies in the summer.

    1. I love going to the movies any time of the year (as long as it's not too late in the day!).

  7. What a summer-y fun list! Can't wait to see the photos from everything!

    1. Thank you! Now I just have to remember to snap photos of it all..

  8. We just made ice cream today with frozen bananas and coconut milk.

  9. I want to try kayaking sometime this summer. I have a feeling I will end up wet! Lots of fun things on your list, Joanne!

    1. They can be tricky to get in and out of but once your sitting they are incredibly steady.

  10. Happy 4th of July!
    Good luck on checking off the items on your summer bucket list!

    Hugs and blessings, Joanne

  11. Yes to this summer bucket list! I love this idea and all the things you put on it.

  12. What a great list. You'll have fun working through it. I'll be very interested to hear about the macarons- they're quite tricky I believe. Thanks for linking.

    1. I definitely will have lots of fun. Alec made a batch and they turned out great!! He went with some caramel ones that were so yummy. I'm already asking him what flavor he wants to try making next.

  13. Joanne, what a great summer bucket list!
