For the Love of Friday

For the Love of Friday- Our Summer Bucket List

With Memorial Day being over and today being the first day of June, summer is basically here.  Let’s face facts folks…summertime when one is a grownup is significantly less fantastic than summertime as a kid.  But we are gonna do all we can to fight this. Following the trend of other blogs, we thought it would be a good idea for us to make a list of things we want to accomplish this summer.  Now there are plenty of lame grown up types of things that we NEED to do.  But we want this list to be full of things we WANT to do.  And if we share them with ya’ll, maybe that will help hold us accountable to do them.  Which would be excellent.  Here is what we came up with so far…

1.  Have an outdoor game night with our friends.

2. Make homemade icecream (like maybe weekly).

 3. Go to a Drive In movie theater.  Hopefully they still exist somewhere.

 4.  Drive down to shoot off big big big fireworks in South Carolina.  In NC they are illegal so we’ll have to take this show on the road.

5.  Learn to play bridge.  This is a game our parents used to play with friends when we were little and it seems super fun.

6.  Find the perfect pair of sunglasses.  Any suggestions??

7.  Go somewhere we’ve never been.

8.  This goal is slightly different for each of us but they both involve summer cocktails.  For me- Figure out my favorite cocktail.  I don’t have a “go to” cocktail that can be made easily at most bars so I always end up ordering something I hate.  I want to figure out what my drink is.  For Colleen- Make a Monkey Business.  This is a cocktail she drank during her honeymoon that she has been building up in her head ever since.  This summer she is finally gonna make it herself.

So, those will be our funtimes goals for this summer.  Hopefully we will be able to accomplish them all.  What is on your bucket list for the summer?

Happy Friday Button Pops!

    I love this list – the game night is a must have! 🙂

    For the drive in movie theater, there is one in Albemarle about an hour away if you’re down to make the trip. They never disappoint!

    I always love the “For the Love of Friday” posts. They’re so cute and make me happy on the last day of the work week.

    I would love to join a summer time game night in H-ville! Or at Colleen’s place! I’ve never even been to Colleen’s. Also, I think you need to add to the list our idea of the fun time at home brunch. Let’s make it happen. This summer I would like to spend more time at the pool/lake. Definitely want to make it to the Taj more this summer and get some sun and hang out with Harper in her precious bathing suits! I think Sir Chris Brackett knows of a drive in somewhere. I’ve never been so I’ll put that on my list too. I also want to go to the Farmer’s market more. Love the one in NoDa. Wanna go soon!!??

    I do believe my Dad is making homemade ice cream on Father’s Day. Come down early and help, you can check one off the list!
