summer bucket list 2012
IDK about you all but I am so ready for summer! I want to walk outside and say, “Gosh darn it’s hot outside!”


Hopefully mother nature will hear my prayers. In the meantime, I’ve started a Summer Bucket List. WHY? Because I plan to have a freaking blast this summer. I mean the kinda of blast that I may not remember! You get my drift. This past year felt a little like hell at times so I plan to get my revenge through this mega-list of “To-Do” things!

Hope you can join in on my fun, meet me there, email when you check something off–let’s just promise to have fun these next three months, K!



1. Stir Up Your Summer Event

We all like drinks right?! Well, next Tuesday I plan to get my nails did, meet up with my fellow bloggers, AND try out some new very tasty-sounding cocktails from Smirnoff.

2. Girlfriend Game Night

Bring a chair and a bottle of liquor and come over to my brand new Brooklyn apartment (which does not have furniture yet hence why you need to BYOC!). I’ve got Jenga, Monopoly, and we can even play Scrabble for all you smarty pants.

3. Find A Summer Romance

I already have a romance with my boo, so I plan to revive that this summer! You know fall in love again. Do the nasty all over the house! Play footsies under the dining room table (when we get one!)

 4. Go on a shopping spree

 I’m on a budget so my spree will only be worth $100, and I’ll be shopping at Forever21 so I can get the most out of my dough! Here I come accessories wall.

5. Camping In My Backyard (with campfire)

Well actually my parents backyard because I live in the Big Apple. I went camping one time and I feel like I need a take two. But on my terms. I want access to the kitchen and the bathroom. Call it fake it you like. My list, my rules–LOL!

6. A Tour Of NYC

You see them all the over New York City. They are usually powered by some really hype foreigner who will tell you that you’re going to have the time of your life on that obnoxiously red double decker bus. Which I feel like with the right folks tagging along, could be true!

 7. Photoshoot Fresh With My Girls

Since my boo is a super-photographer, I plan to put him to work. I’m thinking #SATC style with my girls. Bells and whistles included… aka photoshop!


8. Have A Water Balloon Fight

I was a teenager the last time I had a water balloon fight and I vividly remember that punishment. Oh how it was worth it.

9. Make Ice Cream

My love for ice cream goes why back to when the cool spot in our town was still open. When the ice cream scoopers were made of real metal and soaked in hot water. I’m thinking this might be a task, but hey… we’ve got all summer right!

As a bonus, I am also thinking of some simple tasks to place in my Boredom jar. Here’s how it will work. Whenever I am bored I will pull something out and do the first thing I select. My boredom jar might have read a book, write a poem, or reorganize my nail collection.. get it!

Anyways, now you know what I am doing this summer, whatcho doing?
