Summer 2015 Bucket List

I love goals. I love setting them, I love crossing them off a list. I make a list every morning of things I want to do that day and crossing them off throughout the day. I love everything about it. From big, huge, life-changing goals, to the smallest thing on my to-do list.

This summer, there's a few things I want to accomplish:

Go to the beach at least three times. I've got plans to go this Saturday with a girlfriend of mine from high school. I literally cannot wait.

Get better at skiing. Though we don't have a ski boat we have a boat and we have skis and I was able to get up really well last summer (much improved from the summer before). I also want to try wakeboarding.

Make homemade ice cream. Derek's uncle has the best recipe, but my mom tells me the secret is just beating the egg whites. I used to love making homemade vanilla (or peach, with the peaches coming from trees in our yard) ice cream with my parents and I want it to be something Derek and I can continue doing throughout our marriage. 

Go camping. We went last year on Memorial Day weekend, and I hope we continue the tradition.

Have a picture for every day. I've already (kind of) gotten in the habit with #30photosinbetween and #20happydaysinmay so I hope to continue it throughout summer. Maybe I should make my own hashtag? Isn't that what all the cool kids are doing nowadays?

Make s'mores. Because duh.

Complete the #scsbc15. Last year I participated in the reading challenge, but unfortunately I didn't complete all the categories. I'm a little late to start this year (it officially began May 1) but I'm determined to finish! My preliminary list below:
  • Freebie - any book! (5 points): Undecided
  • Any book you've never heard of (10 points): Undecided
  • A book that has been on your TBR list for at least two years. (10 points): Undecided
  • A book that won a Goodreads “Best Book” award in 2014. (10 points): The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
  • A book by an author who is completely new to you. (15 points): The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
  • A book by an author you have read before. (15 points): The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes - I've read Me Before You (amazing) and The Girl You Left Behind (also good) by Moyes and I've debated on reading One plus One but have heard some bad reviews.
  • A book with "light" or "dark" in the title. (15 points): Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
  • Any book with the name of a city, state or country in the title. (20 points): Paris Red by Maureen Gibbon
  • Read a book with an animal on the cover. (20 points): The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon - This would be a re-read for me but it's been several, several years since I've read it and for some reason it's been on my mind lately.
  • Read a book that is part of a series with at least four books. (25 points): Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry (second book in "The Giver" series)
  • Read a book that is longer than 500 pages long. (25 points): Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
  • +Read a book with an alliterative title. (30 points): Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

As you can see, it's a pretty extensive list but I'm still missing a few. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. And it's not too late to join in the fun!

Read the Harry Potter series from start to finish (again). Yes I've done this one a time or two (or eight) but it just never gets old. Maybe I'll try to fit a couple of these books in to the missing categories above. 

Visit someplace new. Derek and I already did this when we went to Jekyll Island but of course I'm always up for a new adventure. Derek is going to Nashville (to which I've never been) for a bachelor party later this summer and I'm pretty jealous about it!

What's on your bucket list this summer?

We are moving which means we will lose our fireplace! Boomer is so sad, so I've promised to get a firepit for our new patio so we can still make s'mores. I like this reading challenge too!

oh girl now I'm craving s'mores. I think I reread the HP series every summer. it NEVER gets old.

Great Bucket list! I definitely want to do more reading and get to the beach! Hopefully can find time for both of those!

I've never read The Giver. I know it was assigned to so many people in school, but I can't wait to read it... I feel like it's one of the real OG dystopians.

(Slash I never knew it was a series until now!)

I can't wait to hear what you think of the second because I'll be starting with the first! :)

Fun list. I read one plus one and thought it was good. It was the first book I've read by Jo Jo moyes and I want to read another one. I will say it was hard to get into at first but I liked it.

Where do you go camping? We're semi-new to GA and bought a tent with no idea where we can use it..haha! Would love some ideas of places that are tried and true!
