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 [1] 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]

2. Indulge in a good facial [3] 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...) [4]

3. Buy a tent [5]and go camping in the backyard. YUP, glamping [6] in the backyard here we come.

4. Visit the one and only Crater Lake [8]….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! [9]

5. Become a master at making various popsicles [10]. I am determined to make a green popsicle [11] that tastes like heaven.

 

Red, yellow, GREEN popsicle! [12]

6. Embrace meditation [13]. UH-HUH, saying that for years. But this time, FOR REALZ.

 

Meditating is basically like eating one big cupcake. [14]

7. Do running speed workouts with the Eugene Running Club [15] and make my marathon time faster.

 

OMG, biggest geek alert EVER. Thumbs up! (Who does that?) But it is me, accomplishing a goal.... [16]

8. Create a master spreadsheet [17] 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. [18]

9. Find the perfect one-piece bathing suit [19] for my body (good luck with that!)

 

WHY OH WHY do kids always look so cute in bathing suits, hot damn. [20]

10. Read as many books [21] as possible.

 

Like this (kids) book on Frida! [22]

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!
