As far as I’m concerned Summer is already here [typed while sitting outside in my swimsuit]. No bother waiting around for this whole June 21st thing to arrive to make it official. I was thinking about how the arrival of Summer is so much more exciting than the arrival of a new year, however we typically just make resolutions and goals for the new year. The stupidity in all of this is that we should be making resolutions during THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR and not the absolute worst which is what January becomes when you live in the Midwest. The best part about Summer resolutions vs New Years resolutions is that you are allowed to give up after 3 months because that’s all the longer you have to stick to them. Without further ado, I present to you what I will be working on starting yesterday.
+ Sell our house and purchase a different one. Working on this as we speak, stay tuned friends.
+ Drink a Moscow mule waterside. Preferably daily.
+ Paint a ceiling a color other than white, like aqua or yellow or pink or something awesome.
+ Not step on bird eggs while walking. Unfortunately I didn’t have this resolution over the Spring months and I saw one too many Robin embryos.
+ See just as many sunrises as sunsets
+ Go watch a random kids team play baseball and eat as many walking tacos as possible
+ Have an impromptu dance party in a parking lot
+ Run through the sprinklers with my nieces and/or nephew and/or alone
+ Go to the air and water show in Chicago
+ Have a higher ratio of days that I didn’t wear make-up or a bra than when I did
+ Host a whiffle ball tournament with friends
+ Go miniature golfing followed up with lemon and peanut butter ice cream
+ Find myself at a Bruno Mars concert
+ Watch a meteor shower
+ Run a 5k
+ Plan something spectacular for Shawn’s 30th birthday
+ Smoke a cigar
+ Learn how to not smell after sweating
+ Pop bottles weekly
+ See Nelly and Florida Georgia Line in concert. In the books, June 19th baby. EI EI UH OHHHHHH.
+ Wear my heart on my sleeve, errr neck as often as possible
As you can see, I’ve got things to do and walking tacos to eat. Let’s see what you are vowing to do this Summer..link up below so I can check it out. Cheers to a Summer full of
