Summer Bucket List 2014

as the first day of summer approaches, I am dreaming of pool days, tan legs and cocktails on the rocks!

the days are longer and the nights are hotter and I thought it would be fun to put together a bucket list of trips we’ve been meaning to take, recipes I’ve been meaning to make and other fun stuff to make summer 2014 awesome!

Summer Bucket List 2014 square

one. go camping at least 3 times.

two. make these yummy grilled shortcake kebabs. perfect for a summer bbq!

three. make sangria. if you’ve seen my board dedicated to drinks on pinterest , you would think I’m an expert. wrong. I’ve never made sangria! this recipe from gimme some oven is for the BEST sangria – I’m thinking its a good place to start! it looks pretty too!


four. celebrate forth of july at home for the first time. maybe even make some festive goodies – including these drinks made by jessica at little baby garvin that are equal parts yummy and beautiful!

forth of july

five. take  a trip to laughlin, nv to go boating. (I’ve been doing this twice a summer since I was a kid – but the past couple years we haven’t made it out)

six. master the mocktail for those all day pool adventures that alcohol doesn’t make an appearance! I found these lovely recipes on a beautiful mess that I can’t wait to try!


seven. go to a farmers market.

eight. go to the beach.

who wouldn’t want to spend the day on the sand in malibu? I love paradise cove for its perfect beach area and cafe and bar close by!

nine. do one major house project.

ten. acquire a {no tan line} glow for the wedding I’m in at the end of summer!


looks like we will be doing a lot of drinking, beaching and hanging outside this summer! hopefully we can fit in some productivity at some point and get to that house project!

what are your plans for summertime? I’ll be documenting my progress on instagram – #summerbucketlist2014
