my summer bucket list!

This summer is already going by way, way too fast. I've already been in Montana for three whole weeks and that right there is just crazy. Sometimes, like when DJ is at work, I'm glad it goes by fast. But I know the end of August is going to roll around way too soon and I'm not going to be ready to head back to that oven we call Arizona. There are way too many things I want to do this summer. I know there probably isn't enough time to get it all done, but hey, we can try. So today I'm linking up with Erin and sharing my summer bucket list! Some of them are more like goals than actual things to do, but yolo. 
Get settled into our new apartment. We're moving in in a couple of weeks and I can't wait to get everything set up and start making it feel like a home.

Do some crafty DIY's. We've been Pinteresting quite a bit trying to find some fun things to make for the new place. We're heading to some craft stores today to see what we can find!

Get in the holiday spirit. DJ has to leave for worth on the 4th of July, but I definitely want to get crafty for it. I'm thinking a cute pallete flag like the one here, or maybe a cute DIY wreath. And maybe some festive red, white, & blue treats, too!

Get in shape. We're really going to start focusing on eating healthy and working out. Wish us luck!

Do well in my classes. I did really well last semester, and I'm trying to keep that up!

Go fishing. I'm assuming there's a lot of good places to fish here, we just have to find them.

Go horseback riding. When you think Montana, that's what you think right? People riding around flat land on horses. So, we have to.

Go camping. Now that the entire state isn't covered in snow, it's perfect for camping.

Stay a weekend in another city. We're thinking probably Billings because there's a lot to do, but we really want to be able to spend a weekend in another part of Montana and do some shopping and a bunch of fun stuff.

Blog. I'm trying to get back into a routine here, and we're getting there slowly but surely.

Do another blog consultation. I had my first one the other day and it went great! You can check that out here.

Skype with my girls. Okay it's been like three weeks since I've seen Carissa and Kailey and we haven't Skyped yet...not okay.

Flathead lake / Glacier National Park. Have you ever seen this picture floating around Pinterest? The lake looks super shallow but its really hundreds of feet deep. Yes, that's in Montana, and yes, I need to go there.
Okay, I think that's enough to accomplish in one summer, right? Maybe as I think of things I'll come back and update this. And you'll definitely know when I cross something off the list!

What's on your bucket list this summer?

  1. That National Park looks amazing!

  2. That picture is awesome! If you go there, post some pics! Found you on Erin's link up! Have a good weekend.


  3. My husband has wanted to go to Glacier National Park for a long time--to bad it's several days drive from where we live!

  4. I would love to go horseback riding. I haven't since I was a kid! And that photo is amazing- def go there!

  5. I vote that horseback riding goes to the top of the list!! Enjoy your time in Montana!

  6. yayyy I made it on your list!:) we should have a virtual craft(wine) night so we all have cute home decor. and please take me to that lake.

  7. I always have such nervous anticipation when moving. I can't wait for it to be done. That lake?....it looks amazing!

  8. SO JEALOUS OF THAT LAKE. Also, blame Kailey for not skyping, she's the one moving and having no internet. Way to go Kailey. I can't wait to see you fulfill all these items this summer. Cause I know you will. Cause you're perfect.

  9. I so wish that we lived closer to the beach or a lake! That really makes a summer great.

  10. I am so incredibly jealous that you're in Montana right now (my husband and I lived in the Billings area). Have you guys visited Bannack yet? That was pretty much my favorite place to visit other than Yellowstone and Glacier and the Beartooth Pass.

  11. I have never been horseback riding either. It looks like so much fun.

  12. I really need to get on making my list. We move to Atlanta, GA in less than a month and that city is HUGE. I know that there is going to be a ton of stuff I want to do and I haven't even started to research it yet.

  13. Love these ideas! I think the fourth of july DIY is great because there are endless possibilities! Summer bucket lists are so fun! One of mine include "catching TWO fish" while fishing this summer! You can find the rest of mine over on my blog www.simplyadventurous.com ; come visit and stay a while! :)

  14. I love the 4th, it's my second favorite holiday! (halloween being #1) Can't wait to see what you make
