Summer 'to-do' list:

Summer is just around the corner - already!
Can't believe it.
With Gratitude inspired me to make my own 'to-do' list for this summer.

1. Get a tan.  I can't wait for this - I feel so much better when I have a little color.
2. Swim in the ocean.  It's been a while since i've played in the waves.
3. Wakeboard (this is a given... our family spends much of our summer on the water!)
4. Host a BBQ party - mmm, the true smells and sounds of summer.
5. Get a couple of summer pedicures.
6. Find and wear out a cute pair of shorts!
7. Have a picnic in the shade somewhere in my favorite city (SF)
8. Find a good summer book & finish it.
9.Take a road trip somewhere.
10. Spend lots of time with family and friends.

{This is my friend Sue & I last time we got together in Carmel - love her.}
What about you?? 
Any big trips or summer plans?

I love summertime as a teacher! Sleeping in and tanning is great. Ooh, I'm scared to wakeboard.

Great list...
I want to read a few books for fun (no more textbooks!), hit a few festivals in my college-town, snorkel out to a sunken ship off the coast of our favorite beach, and take a river cruise with friends.

P.S. I love this... said...

Great list! I need a tan too, pronto!

Thanks for stopping by! =)

Wakeboarding is a lot of fun but it is really hard at first. I hope you get the chance to do this over the summer. =)

The picnic sounds perfect just now and it doesn't even have to wait for summer (it's about 80s where I am just now). Also love your goals to swim in the ocean and take a road trip somewhere. :)
