Hey all! I am so mad at all of you! No one told me how amazing The Mindy Project is!! Ok, you all told me, I just didn’t listen. In any event, I’ve started watching from season 1 and it is pretty hilarious. I really love how women comedians are taking over. #funnygirlpower
Also, don’t forget! Tomorrow is my link-up for Throwback Thursday! Please join me in posting an old post on your site and linking up. Choose something that you think deserves a second-go-around!
Anyway, I totally and completely forgot about my annual tradition called The 99 Days of Summer! It all started when I read an article in Coastal Living two years ago called The 99 Days of Summer. There are exactly 99 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day to soak up every second of my favorite season. Well, I’m woefully behind in my magazine reading and I forgot all about this until practically this very minute. And like all good bloggers, I love to make lists so I got right down to writing out my list for the 99 Days of Summer. This year Coastal Living decided to only list 40 things and because, quite frankly, 99 things is kind of stressful, I’m going to go with a lower number this year…but I still have 99 Days to celebrate (or thereabouts).
1. Get into some summer reads. I’m seriously debating a Kindle…any thoughts from the crowd? I heard that I Take You by Eliza Kennedy is pretty hilarious. I also want to finish listening to Yes, Please! and I’m open to more suggestions for my summer reading list.
2. Head to a baseball game. This is a tradition for me every summer and this summer I hope I have a cute little peanut to help me root root root for the home team!
3. Become a fashionista. Ok, so maybe this is a little too general but I’m excited to spice up my wardrobe this summer with some inspiration from a few Brazilian stores, Stitch Fix & Fabletics (affiliate link). I want to get a few trendy pieces and a few classic pieces to amp up my wardrobe a little bit.
4. Head to Napa for some wine tasting. Ok this one is kind of a given because I’m going this weekend but I’m really looking forward to it!
5. Celebrate the 4th of July with my little Australian-Brazilian-American!
6. Try a new ice cream flavor.
7. Eat oysters. And shrimp and lobster and allllll the shellfish!
8. Make a summer cocktail.
9. Make this my fittest summer ever!
10. Try yoga SUP!
11. Wear a floaty summer dress.
12. Relax in an Adirondack chair.
13. Take a nap.
14. Practice yoga outdoors.
15. Walk everyday.
16. Lobster roll.
17. Photograph a sunset.
18. Get on my bike!
19. Rock a retro swim look.
20. Play golf and mini golf.
21. Check out an outdoor concert.
22. Rock a summer braid.
23. Make a summer recipe.
24. Relax on the beach.
25. Take my little nugget to swim lessons.
26. Spend time with family.
Readers, what’s on your bucket list this summer? Thoughts on a Kindle? Book recommendations for summer reading?
I want to have your summer! All of those things sound amazing! On my bucket list is heading to the beach for a little relaxation (who I am I kidding, it won’t really be “relaxing” with 2 kids in tow!). I love being. Near the ocean. My oldest loves it and it will be fun to see the little guy at the beach for the first time!
Love your summer bucket list! They all sound awesome and so much fun! One of my summer bucket list things is to take the babies to the ocean for the first time. Should be interesting to see what they think of that!
i love baseball games and Napa and summer cocktails and i totally need to get myself SUP asap! so many good things. i have a Kindle (although i usually end up reading it on my Kindle app on my phone or tablet) and definitely recommend the electronic readers. i just finished “before i met you” this week and really enjoyed it — look it up!
My husband bought me a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I was a little hesitant at first, but holy crap, I love it! I can download books through my local library from the convenience of my bed and return it the same way. Buying books is super easy as well. Plus, with the Kindle Fire, it’s basically like an iPad mini. Perfect for one handed reading while I’m feeding the baby or she’s asleep on me.
Your summer list is doable for sure–even 40 days in 99 is jam packed. I think that I will adapt your summer bucket list to mine and add: sit on a porch, water pretty flowers, and make an arrangement of hydrangeas.
Great list ! I just love summer. With the amount of daylight I feel I can just pack in so much more. I love my kindle, having all my books in one place. I read several at a time so I find it very practical. I am currently reading the Nightengale. Love it so far.
