Summer Bucket List

October 28, 2013


Since it’s almost summer, I will be cheesy and put together a summer bucket list.

  1. Lay under the stars with someone special and fall asleep.
  2. Eat $20 of frozen yogurt in one sitting.
  3. Watch a meteor shower.
  4. Have a pillow fight.
  5. Go skydiving.
  6. Go hang gliding.
  7. Ride a hot air balloon.
  8. Walk in ocean water that’s so clear I can see my toes.
  9. Wake up to the car honks and high heel clicks of New York City.
  10. Meet a best friend.
  11. Climb down the window at night and sneak out to Bojangles.
  12. Become an important person in someone’s life.
  13. Make a kid smile.
  14. Have a chick-flick marathon.
  15. Stay in the movie theater for a whole day just watching movies.
  16. Buy a coffee for the next person in line.
  17. Get lost on purpose while driving.

And that’s my bucket list for now. What’s yours? Do you have anything you would add?
