Update on my Summer Bucket List!

Earlier this summer, I wrote out a list of things I wanted to do over the course of the Summer. I’m going to go back through and see what things I did do and what things I didn’t. Maybe what I didn’t do will roll over into my fall bucket list 😉

  2. Trips to the beach – Yes, I was able to go to the beach several times!
  3. Go to an amusement park -No, but I’m going in September

  16. Make s’mores -Yes, What’s camp without S’mores?
  17. Bonfire -Yes, I’ve definitely had campfires and I think one bonfire
  18. Day without technology (we’ll see about this one haha) – I want to say yes but no
  19. Go to a concert -No, I’ll catch you next year Firefly
  20. Read a book -Yes, “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”
  21. Cook a new food -Yes, cooking is actually quite fun

  23. Pic nic with friends -No, I mentioned this to my boyfriend once but it never happened…
  24. Bowling -No, and I’m not too upset about this one lol
  25. Ride my bike -Yes & No? I can’t remember. Wait, yes! While I was babysitting in June!
  26. Make homemade popsicles -No, AND I DEEPLY REGRET THIS

If you actually read this whole list, then wow props to you. Hope your summer was more fulfilling than mine haha. If I was being honest, I had a great summer just not as much *pizaz* (is that how you spell it?) as I might have wanted it to be.

I did 15/26 that’s 57% completed! Better luck next year haha!
