Summer bucket list

Well, I already posted this on Holly's blog,
but I wanted to share it on here too!
I know we are well into summer but this is my summer bucket list.

I kind of feel like summer has snuck up on me due to our wedding and honeymoon festivities,
and today I am going to share with you my goals and bucket list for this summer. I feel like
being a newlywed just in time for summer will make this summer a special one, and I want to
make it a good one. Being a newlywed puts you on cloud nine...add summer to that and you
can't ask for much else:) I have narrowed it down to my top 5 things for the summer even though
I could go on for days.

1.) Go to the farmers market.
Ours opened the first weekend in June and I am itching to go.
I went one time last summer with my mom, and I need to go back.
It does require getting up at 7 on a Saturday which is why I have not made it yet.

2.) Start working out again and run a Labor Day 5k
                   I have totally slacked off on working out and I really want to start up again.
I ran my first 5k last year and I really want to run more.
 It always sucks to start from scratch but it needs to be done.
I just want it to be a part of life and not another "workout kick".
We live right by a great running trail so I have no excuses.
I WILL keep you updated.
SOMEDAY I would love to run a half marathon even though it seems
like an impossible goal. Any runners out there have running tips?
I would love to hear it.

3.) See as many friends and family as possible.
Planning a wedding for over a year makes for a busy year.
I finally feel like we now have more freedom to make those weekend trips.
We already have two trips planned for the summer.
One weekend my best friend and her boyfriend are coming to stay at our house which,
 OMG I am so excited about.
We are also going to see all of David's family the weekend before the 4th of July.
 I love road trips.
Especially with Dave!

4.) Grill out in our backyard and have my family over!
We have yet to have my parents and sister and her family over for dinner.
  Granted we have only lived here since the wedding,
but I want to make sure it happens this summer.
5.) Go to a baseball game!
I am sure you are all familiar with the Texas Rangers.
We live so close to the stadium
and even though I'm not some huge baseball fan,
 baseball games are fun and I have been wanting to go for literally years.

I can't wait to start crossing things off the bucket list!
