Finish a 10k training program once and for all…I’ve lost count on what number attempt this is. Five? Eight? Well…no. Off to a great start! But I am almost up to five miles on my own, so that has to count for something.
Get married, move into our house…and make that house our home. So ready for this one. SO. READY. The first two are definitely done and done, and this is house is for sure technically our home, but it still has mostly hand-me-down furniture and almost zero decor…so we still have a long way to go.
Throw a kick ass shower and bachelorette party for my bestie/roomie/future sister-in-law. Done and done. The shower was at a beautiful wedding dress shop in our area. I took LOTS of pictures with my father-in-law’s fancy camera of this shower but then I gave it back to him before downloading them on my computer. Classic. It was gorgeous though and I plan on recapping it…some day.
Create an outdoor space that I love…much like this one if I’m lucky. I can not wait to be sitting on our patio, drink and book in hand. Well…no. Turns out outdoor furniture costs your first born child, but my mom gave us some old stuff she had so we have something. And we got the fire pit that we registered for so we plan on using that space more now that the weather is cooling off.
Go to one of the three awesome farmer’s markets in my town at least twice a month. Fail.
Meet Griffin…can not wait to love on this little man. Five more weeks!! I think I’ve made my obsession with my godson very clear but here is another picture because can you ever see too many cute baby pictures? Answer…no.
Go on my first blate with Meg, Melissa, Amanda, Kay and Caroline. We couldn’t ever find a day that worked for us all so it didn’t happen (boo!). But Meg will be in my town in a few weeks for a wedding and I can’t wait to meet her IRL then.
Make tons of memories with my family, old friends and new friends at the 118435 weddings we will attend…ok four. Hard to get out of these…
Spend every moment of sunny free time by the pool. It wasn’t much…but something is better than nothing!
Do an outfit post once a week on this here blog…I’ve got some great outfits but almost zero motivation to take photos of myself. Do we even need to address this one? The biggest thing I failed at this summer was blogging and I think we all know that.
Get to know my new cheerleaders and have a blast at our cheer camp. Done! Cheer is so. much. fun. this year! I love these girls already.
Read…like a lot. I’ve done ok at this! (You are not a failure). On the honeymoon I read Where’d You Go Bernadette and An American Heiress and would highly, highly recommend both. I’m working on Gone Girl now because the bestie said she wouldn’t see the movie with me until I read the book. It’s good!
Finally get around to some of these DIYS…now that I have a whole house to fill I have all the reasons to stop putting them off. Well…no. Moving this to the “fall bucket list” I guess.
Drink all the margaritas…I think we all know that this was zero problem for your girl. I did switch from my beloved Strawberitas to SkinnyGirl Grapefruit Margarita so you know, I could fit into that very form fitting wedding dress pictured above.
Go to as many baseball games as possible…because it is where the fiance is the most happy. Fail. This is becoming a not so fun process, reliving all my summer failures.
Let’s end on a sappy one because why not…soak up all the memories (and take more pictures!!) of “the busiest, most wonderful summer of my life.” I think I would say done and done on this one. This was by far the greatest summer of my life. I married the man of my dreams and went on the most beautiful honeymoon. I can’t wait to get back into blogging regularly and sharing all of these events with you in more detail!
