Summer Bucket List Recap {& exciting news}

Back in June I set out to accomplish a Summer Bucket List. Today was actually the first time I looked at it since I wrote the post back in June and I was pleasantly surprised that I accomplished almost everything. 

let's see how I did...

2012 Summer Bucket List 

Go camping twice. Technically we only went camping once, but I'm going to cross this off as we also went to our friends trailer once. 

Visit some college friends up North. They actually came to visit me! For once I wasn't the one having to drive to them and we all got to go to the Toronto Zoo!

Looking for Timon and Pumba :) 

Go on a road trip. Well we didn't go anywhere too far, but we did drive up to Cottage Country and while there we visited a few places that neither of us have been to before. We drove there and back (about 5 hours) so technically this was a road trip.. right?! ;)

Home Away from Home

Run another 5k. My first 5k ever was back in June. Last weekend I ran the Terry Fox 5k and this coming weekend I'm running the Toronto Zoo 5k :D

Continue running regularly.  Check!!! :D

Reach my birthday goal. Unfortunately this did not happen :( But I'm on my way to a new goal for the next 11 weeks :)

Go strawberry/blueberry picking. Oh I definitely did this! 

Try Kayaking. I've wanted to try kayaking for so long and luckily for me, the place we stayed at in Cottage Country had kayaks! I definitely took advantage of this and went out twice. I loved it!!

Go on a hike. Unfortunately I don't know of many hiking places nearby. I'm hoping maybe I can cross this off sometime during the fall. 

Play tennis. The boyfriend and I got out and played it a few times and I really enjoyed it. I think we need to plan more tennis dates ow that it's not a bazillion degrees out. 
No pictures, sorry!

Go to a concert. On Canada Day we went to see the Tragically Hip and they were awsome!!

Try the new roller coaster at Wonderland.  We conquered the Leviathan back in June. Holy, it was intense! 

10/12 ain't bad if you ask me!! I had a fantastic summer and one of the busiest ever! I'm excited for Fall. The weekends are filling up fast already! It's going to be Christmas before we know it ;)

I hope everyone else enjoyed their summer as much as I did. 

Oh and some exciting news... On Monday I'll be hosting my very first stay tuned!! :D 


  1. That's great that you did most of your summer goals! :) And I think you look fantastic in all of your pictures. :)

  2. Wow, that is a lot to accomplish in one summer! Sadly I never got over to Wonderland this year, but I did go each of the last three so I can't complain too much. I thought about doing the Toronto Zoo run, but somehow it sort of slipped through my fingers to get there, instead I am running from Zombies this weekend!

  3. lol I thought I was the only one who did this. It is great to see other person doing it as well. I started my summer bucket list last year with my boyfriend because it seemed we always said we wanted to do things but we never got around to it. I even had some of the same things on my list! Looks like you had a great summer too! p.s those strawberries look so yummy!


I love comments!
