The Summer List

So we all tend to create some sort of a list full of things we want to do in the summer. Whether we create an actual list or just keep it stored safely in our minds. I am going to put a quick list I created on this blog. I truly believe when I write things down, I am more likely to accomplish what is written down.

And I just want to take a moment to say that I love summer. When I was younger, I didn't want to like it since it was every other person's favorite holiday. For some reason, I tend to try not liking whatever has the popular vote. It is this weird quality I have. However, I have caved. Fall is still my favorite, but summer just has so many qualities that make me sigh with happiness. Bring on beautiful summer dusk, star gazing, fires, swimsuits, and hand holding at outdoor social events.

So there you have it. A quick list. Hopefully I do many more cool things on top of just the 29 I have listed.

Hey, I'll go ahead and add a 30. One I know I'll be able to cross off.

30. Get married in the temple :)

As you can see, I crossed off 10 and 15 already. I had a slice of glorious cheesecake while in Boise with my family. And I shot guns over Memorial weekend at Bri's parents' home along with some friends.
Here is the proof:

I almost accomplished number 7 this weekend. When departing from Bear Lake, we stopped to get shakes. But I couldn't resist getting oreo. I'll get it later this summer though. No worries.

What is on your summer list?  


  1. my summer list is not nearly as cool as yours is. How about I make it easy and just say organzie organize organize and donate donate donate. And I'm a wee bit jealous of that cheesecake. The End.

  2. I think donating is so cool! And if you weren't a wee bit jealous then something would probably be wrong with you ;)

  3. I love your post. I love your family too!

  4. Oh Kelsey you are so stinking cute. I love your summer list. So I decided to create my own summer list also for my blog :]
