I’m a planner. I love my lists. You know this. But I also love a certain amount of ‘fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-ness’ in my life. That being said, lets circle back to the Summer Kickoff Bucket List and see how we did:
2012 Summer Kickoff Bucket List
Grill! Eat watermelon
- Go to the pool
Get to spin class (hello bathing suit season!) Buy something new to wear in NYC
- Take a hike with the dogs
Get things prepared for Kacie’s Baby Shower!More on this coming soon! Install new closet systemOk, technically it’s not DONE, but my carpenter (aka Joey) is running into some challenges. It’s getting checked off for being in the works though. Donate old clothes Get travel plans together for Georgia TripFlying down with the bros for a wedding this month. Never been to GA! Start a new book that doesn’t have the words “50 Shades” in the titleThe Pam101/DSpot Book Club is making a comeback. More to come. Take lots of pictures
Not bad at all! I’m actually surprised a trip to the pool hasn’t happened yet. As for the hike with the dogs, we did have an impromptu Yellow Lab Party, so that sort of counts.
The Lab in the middle is Moose’s legit half-brother, Cooley. And Cooley’s two-legged sibling just happens to be Joey’s godson, Owen (have I lost you yet?). Their whole family came over for a last minute visit recently, which then led to an impromptu barbeque complete with food, friends and the above pictured tiki torches. But seriously, how squeezable is this little guy???
The baby’s not bad either. Ba-dum-CHING. I love Owen’s little man pose. Justin & Amee, you made one cute kid!
Moose and Riggo were pretty fond of him too. And Owen was pretty fond of Moose’s tongue.
Hey, if you were surrounded by that many dog tongues, you’d try to grab one too!
While it was good to check things off the bucket list, I will say my favorite parts of vacation were the unplanned things — our BBQ/Dog Party, meeting Sara & Eric in Annapolis, a S’mores run with Alex and a shopping trip with my Mom. I’m looking forward to more unplanned plans this summer, with a nice sprinkling of the planned things too. You know I’m all about finding the magical balance.
