Summer Bucket List! (2019)

Today is the first day of Summer!  Wooh!  Hurray!  Woop-dee-do!  It felt more like Fall this morning as I checked the gardens in a hoodie and jeans in 60°F degree weather.  But don’t worry!  It’s supposed to get high of 77°F today!  (Welcome to Michigan..)

Now that it’s officially summer, and my boyfriend and I have been going out and doing more stuff together (going fishing, going to/being in parades, flea market visits, driving around with the windows down, etc..) I thought it would be fun to make a Summer Bucket List!

When I asked my mother what she had on her bucket list for the summer, her response was:

🔥 torch every 🐜 I see!  Our counters were literally crawling this morning.  I am done with those things….fire ones, red ones, sugar ones and ugly big black ones….torch them all!!’

I mean, you’ve got to have goals right..?  I don’t blame her though, I’m thankful that we don’t have as many ants up here in the north as she does in the south!  We’ve found a few ants here and there in the kitchen, but not nearly as bad as my mom has it!




When I asked my boyfriend Cody what was on his Summer Bucket List, he responded with:

1.  Fishing 🐟

2.  Go on a couple of road-trips 🚗

3.  Take my girlfriend on more dates 💐

4.  Plant a couple of food plots for the deer 🌱

5.  Loose 25 LBS before bow season 🎯

All great goals for the summer! ❤
