Summer 2015 To-Do List

Since summer’s now here (well, kind of. Yes my kids are out of school but I am still in NYC…), I put together my personal to-do list for the season, filled with things I’d love to accomplish before Labor Day. Lots to do in just a small amount of time.

 

1. Drink rose and gobble up oysters at Grand Banks on Pier 25 in NYC. Doesn’t it look ridiculous? Unreal, oh-my-god-I-want-to-go-now.

 

The restaurant is on a BOAT! But not this type of boat. And definitely not this captain.

2. Indulge in a good facial and stock up on good skin care.

 

Both in need of facials! Look at our facial expressions (this was two years ago, but I loved the fact that we both look so completely horrible...)

3. Buy a tent and go camping in the backyard. YUP, glamping in the backyard here we come.

 

Teepee slash Tent.

4. Visit the one and only Crater Lake….problem is, I will have two toddlers in tow. Maybe. Hopefully. Someday.

 

Not Crater Like, but the Oregon Coast.....and let's face it, Oregon is the most gorgeous state of them all, but I have a hard time leaving Eugene!

5. Become a master at making various popsicles. I am determined to make a green popsicle that tastes like heaven.

 

Red, yellow, GREEN popsicle!

Red, yellow, GREEN popsicle!

 

6. Embrace meditation. UH-HUH, saying that for years. But this time, FOR REALZ.

 

Meditating is basically like eating one big cupcake.

7. Do running speed workouts with the Eugene Running Club and make my marathon time faster.

 

OMG, biggest geek alert EVER. Thumbs up! (Who does that?) But it is me, accomplishing a goal....

8. Create a master spreadsheet of all the addresses for holiday cards (yes, sounds so ridiculous, but my current system is SO not working for me)

 

Making a master list spreadsheet sounds almost as fun as the Northeast Winter this past year.

9. Find the perfect one-piece bathing suit for my body (good luck with that!)

 

WHY OH WHY do kids always look so cute in bathing suits, hot damn.

10. Read as many books as possible.

My list could go on and on and on (mundane to-do things like organize my bathroom  and more extreme things like become a US Open Ball Girl)….so do tell me, what is on your summer to-do-list? Hope you are having a great start to the week. And Happy Summer!
