So I’m 18 days into my summer bucket list challenge and things are going well.
I was so excited to kick this challenge off over Memorial Day weekend and had high hopes for crossing lots of things off my list. Unfortunately, I came down with a bad cold and literally slept the entire weekend. No joke, the day before Memorial Day I slept a total of 16 hours. Ugh. Needless to say, nothing got crossed of my list that weekend.
I’m feeling better now, so here’s what I’ve been up to…
Attended outdoor concert #1 of 3
This past weekend, my husband and I drove to LA to see James Taylor at the Hollywood Bowl. I’ve been wanting to see him for the LONGEST time now and am so happy I was able to do it. He was incredibly charming and such a great entertainer. It was also our first time at the Hollywood Bowl and I must say it’s a great concert venue. If you have a chance to catch a show there, DO IT!
So far, so good! I LOVE having fresh flowers in the house and have been able to keep up with this item so far. This week I had the GORGEOUS peonies above in our living room. It put me in a good mood every time I saw them.
I’m in the process of finishing book #1 of 7 – Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. Look for the book review soon!
Working on first DIY project
I’m also finishing up a DIY welcome wreath for our front door! I’m combining a couple of different wreaths I saw on Pinterest, so I’m hoping it turns out as well as it looks in my head 🙂 Stay tuned!
Made a sign and cheered runners at the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon
As you may have seen from my post about Why I Love Running, I made a sign and cheered on the runners of the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll half and full marathon! It was so much fun to do! My husband and I got up early enough to see the winner of the entire marathon go by us as well as the fastest woman to finish.
Other things I’ve been doing…
Exercising as much as my schedule allows
Keeping up with my neighborhood walks
Writing and sending handwritten cards to friends/family
There you have it – update #1! How is your list going????
