The Official Unofficial Start of Summer

Happy Memorial Day! 



Let me tell you why I love this happy day.  Did you read the title?  That's the main reason.  Another, I love cookouts and everything that comes with them.  As in hamburgers and potato salad.  It also means I'm days away from summer break from kindergarten-ville.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job and my students, but I also love days home with Charley and watching the Today show for four straight hours.  But man does summer fly by.  So I'm here today to share a list of 10 things I want to accomplish this summer, before it's time to plan our Labor Day cookout menu. 
1.  Discover new thrift shops

2.  Finish painting the wood trim and doors in our house

3.  Paint the dining room a moody gray/green/navy color

4.  Take weekly family trips to the farmer's market

5.  Go on a picnic with B.J., like the one he planned for (what he calls) our official first date

6.  Go to the City Flea in Cincy

7.  Build a headboard for our bed that mimics this one from West Elm

8.  Go on a  Pedal Wagon bike tour in downtown Cincy like the one we did for my 30th birthday

9.  Take time to read a good book-it's been too long

10.  Of course, soak up every.single.second with Charley

Hopefully broadcasting this list (that includes some lofty plans, I might add) to the blog world, will hold me accountable.  How about you?  Any big plans for sum sum summa time? Pin It
