What I did all summer...

Oh summer where did you go? Yes, it'll still be warm here for a little while but I've noticed it's already starting to cool off and the water in my pool is starting to get chillier. I squashed as much as I possibly could into my summer, so let's see how I did with my summer bucket list

1. Go to an outdoor concert ~ Success!

Florida Country Superfest in June to see Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, and LUKE BRYAN!

2. Day at the lazy river ~ Success!

3. Baseball games ~ Success!

Saw my Yankees on my birthday

...and went to Wrigley Field while in Chicago

4. Fireworks ~ Success!

Watched fireworks over the lake from a friend's hot tub on the 4th of July

5. Outdoor movie and foodtruck nights ~ Fail

6. Go out for ice cream ~ Another fail

7. Boat ride ~ Success!

8. Check out more gulf coast beaches ~ half fail

Went to Treasure Island Beach again, but it wasn't "new" so doesn't count

9. Take another trip with friends ~ Success

Went to Chicago with Emily and K

...and H's best friend from CT joined us for dinner and roof top bar hopping.

10. Go river tubing ~ fail

Never made it over to the springs this summer, but there's still time. Hoping to go some time in October when things aren't as crazy busy. 

Were you able to accomplish everything fun you wanted to do this summer?


Today is the last day to enter the Vine Vera giveaway!


  1. I think overall you did a great job with your bucket list!! I haven't been to a lazy river ever so I'm adding that to next years list!!

  2. You got a lot in! Big stuff too. I call it a win.

  3. You didn't get any ice cream this summer?!? That needs to be fixed ASAP! :) Glad you had a good summer.. it definitely went by way too fast!

  4. Nice! You actually accomplished a lot this summer! I'm jealous! I went tubing... but didn't even make it to the beach. LOL! Actually, that's a lie, I went to the beach when I went to Key West so I guess it kinda counts! We were going to go tubing again this weekend but with this weather... yeah.

  5. It looks like you did it right! Attend a baseball game was on my list and I completely forgot. Now I think this is the last week for the Rangers games. Maybe a last minute plan can happen!

  6. You had a fun and successful summer, but I can't get over the fact you never went out for ice cream haha. That's ok, I bet I went enough times for the both of us ;)

  7. You got a lot of fun things done! No ice cream!?

  8. Looks like you got some of the more fun stuff accomplished! We didn't make it to the beach nearly as much as I had hoped.

  9. That looks like it was a great summer!!! Beautiful beach/pool shots and I'm still incredibly jealous of those Chicago pictures!

  10. Well, despite missing just a couple of summer bucket list items it looks like you packed a LOT of fun activities into your summer! I'm feeling pretty lame in comparison! LOL. And you managed to look cute while doing all of it. No one rocks a bikini like you!!
