My Summer To-Do List!

Happy Monday everyone!

Hopefully you have the day off and are out soaking up the sunshine, having a 3 day weekend is the best! Cam and I have been having a fabulous time in Chicago (our flight leaves later this afternoon), and I’m looking forward to telling you all about it later this week. But since this weekend is sort of the unofficial kick-off to summer, I thought I’d share what I’ve got on my summer to-do list! It’s basically a list of fun things that I’d like to do between now and Labor Day…enjoy!


Summer 2012

-Read at least 10 books (I have majorly been slacking on reading!)
-Go golfing (I’ve only ever gone once!)
-Take the gondola at Heavenly up to the observation deck and have a picnic
-Hike Mt. Tallac
-Try standup paddle boarding (really excited to do this!)
-Go to Carmel/Monterrey/Big Sur
-Go to the Redwoods
-Go to back Yosemite National Park and hike Half Dome
-Go back to Napa/Sonoma
-Go back to San Fran and visit Alcatraz
-Celebrate 3 years of marriage to my wonderful husband! 🙂
-Get a new grill for our deck (Cam won grill in a raffle at work last week, how awesome is that?!)
-Barbeque at least one night a week
-Go to a blogger meet-up (I’ve got one on the calendar for next weekend!)
-Take a boat cruise on Lake Tahoe
-Go to the Celebrity Golf Tournament here in Tahoe
-Rent kayaks and take them on the lake
-Get a bike…and actually use it
-Run a 5K
-Start training for a half marathon
-Find an organization to volunteer with here in Lake Tahoe
-Go to Chicago (I think we can cross this off since I’m here right now!)
-Go to Michigan for 4th of July
-Go to Crater Lake National Park
-Stay consistent with doing yoga and continue to work on improving my flexibility/strength
-Continue eating Paleo (I love the way I’ve felt the past few months giving my body the healthy fuel it needs instead of junk so I want to continue!)
-Use my ice cream maker at least 3 times (although I love eating Paleo, I can’t resist indulging in the occassional ice cream treat, especially if it’s homemade!)
-Go to Bend, OR
-Go to South Carolina for a visit
-Make homemade popsicles
-Go to at least 3 Farmer’s Markets
-Go camping and make s’mores (one of my favorite summer treats!)
-Relax and just enjoy living in Tahoe! 🙂

I’m sure I’ll add more things as summer progresses, but I think that this list is a good start for now! I’m looking forward to a healthy, happy, and fun-filled summer! Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend friends! Xoxo
