Spring & Summer Recap

Oh hello, Fall. You beautiful, sexy, amazing, perfect, gorgeous piece of the year. I’ve missed you so. (I know we’re 4 days away. I know.)

Today I’m putting the end cap on my spring & summer bucket list before divulging my fall list. I’ll share my new list on Thursday, so stick around 🙂 Until then, let’s evaluate my summer…

  • Go to a major or minor league baseball game (Indian’s game with cousin & friends)
  • Visit the farmers market at least twice
  • Go on anniversary trip to Gettysburg
  • Go to country summer concert with friends (Kenny Chesney)
  • Go to summer concert with K (Jimmy Eat World)
  • Finish cleaning stuff out of M&D’s basement
    Making progress!
  • Finish purging unnecessary stuff (This is never done but it’s “done” for now.)
  • Have a garage sale at new house!
  • Go to the outdoor rootbeer stand (Fundays)
  • Go swimming!
  • Go to Trumpet in the Land (outdoor play)
  • Follow 5 new blogs
  • Set up home office
  • Set up basement workout space
  • Scrapbook & finish year 3
  • Summer vacation (Darlington, SC)
  • Paint the bedroom

Not bad… not bad…

As far as things I did not do…
We more or less nixed the idea of a basement workout space for now.
Our plan is to paint many rooms at once (and hire someone to do it). Putting it on the fall list.
I made a lot of progress on my home office/craft room, but it’s not done by any means so I don’t want to completely cross it off my list.

I don’t know that I necessarily started following 5 new bloggers, but I started frequenting and visiting the sites of multiple blog-acquaintances in hopes of becoming blog-friends. Does that make sense?

I know you summer-lovers are dreading the next 4 months (5 months? 6 months? …who knows), but I am very happy to see this new season. Come back in two days for my fall bucket list!

      Thank you! My motivation drags a bit in the summer so I put some sure-fire ones on there… lol.

    WHOO HOOO – you did great.
    I didnt even SET any goals so you’re one step ahead of me from the start 🙂 haha


    • Audrey September 19, 2018 / 1:50 pm

      Ooooh, it’s summertime! You deserved to take it off from chores and goals 😉

    You did awesome tackling your summer list! I still say there’s time to make ice cream… just make it pumpkin flavored. 🙂


    • Audrey September 19, 2018 / 1:52 pm

      Yummm! That’s a great idea!!

    Wow Audrey, you did awesome! That poor ice cream, though. 😀 I’m so happy it’s Fall, even though we don’t have the glorious Fall colors, I just love the cooler temperatures and I’m looking forward to soups and stews and more hearty fare making it’s way back to my dinner table.


    • Audrey September 19, 2018 / 1:51 pm

      Oh yes! Fall foods are THE BEST.
      I’m telling ya… If I don’t make ice cream this fall I am selling/gifting my ice cream maker. This is ridiculous!


  5. Emelia Lawrence September 19, 2018 / 8:28 am

    You did so awesome. I totally Need to try and make ice cream sometime. Can’t wait to see your fall list 🙂


    • Audrey September 19, 2018 / 1:53 pm

      Thanks, Emelia! My fall list tends to be more outside/party oriented 😉


  6. Confuzzled Bev September 19, 2018 / 3:02 pm

    You did an amazing job.

    Autumn may officially be coming but the weather here doesn’t seem to have got the message. It’s still absolutely roasting!


    • Audrey September 24, 2018 / 9:43 am

      Thank you!!
      We finally got some 60 degree perfection this weekend 🙂 Just in time for the first day of fall! We took advantage with an outdoor wedding (luck) and a fire in the backyard (opportunity)! LOL

    You did an awesome job with your list! I am visiting my family in Ontario and it’s ridiculously hot, I can’t wait to go back to Vancouver because we are in full autumn mode! Bring it on!


    • Audrey September 24, 2018 / 9:48 am

      Thanks, Elyse! I’m glad that OH has officially got the memo about fall. When I wrote this post it was pushing 90*. ICK.

    Fall is my favorite season, so I’m thrilled it’s so close now! I can’t wait for actual cooler weather to come in (this weekend I think?) Great job on your spring/summer goals. You checked off a lot so that’s awesome.



    • Audrey September 24, 2018 / 9:49 am

      Me too!! Yes, I was SO glad to get some fall weather this weekend! I definitely took advantage of it on Saturday! A long dog walk, an outdoor wedding reception, and a backyard fire! 🙂

    Great job on your summer goals! I’m like you, I love fall. I really hope that the next place we move is a place with seasons. However, it looks like fall in my apartment!! I have my decorations out and my pumpkin spice candles going!!


    • Audrey September 26, 2018 / 1:55 pm

      Thank you! I’m more motivated to check things off in the summer (to keep my happy since I dislike the season) and more motivated to relax and slow down in the fall. Lighting candles is one of my FAVORITE things about fall. It feels strange doing it in the summer. Ha.
