  • Eat 2 snow cones (wedding cake done + john deer)

  • Play putt-putt (mini golf)

  • See a drive-in movie

  • Sew one new project + finish the wedding quilt

  • Run (at least) 1 5K  + complete the couch to 5K app (I didn't totally finish because I started the WRWM training but I consider it done, haha) + women's run/walk training

  • Try 3 new drinks here + here + one not documented ;)

  • Grow a tomato + keep my basil + mint alive (so far I have 2 tomatoes growing and the mint + basil are looking good)

  • Have a picnic dinner

  • Ride our bikes more

  • Take more photos with my DSLR, but not so many that I'm not living in the moment

♥ Have you seen Ali Edwards?  I decided to play along.  You should too!


  1. Oh my gosh, I have the same book!
    I am in love with it. It's so fun to write in.
    Found you through the sponsor page.
    Lovely Blog:)
    ***New Follower***
    I'd love it if you visit my blog as well!

  2. Great list :)
    I too would like to start running and have my veggie garden actually grow veggies!

  3. I do the same. It is so fun to write in. I like the way you write on your book. Thanks for the post.

  4. Yay!  I know.  I want to buy more of them.  Im glad you found me!  Ill check out your blog for sure. ♥

  5. Thanks Andrea :)  Well see what happens with the veggies.  You should start running + do it with me!  I post my progress on instagram. ♥

  6. I love your Summer Manifesto. I believe my mental list of to-dos looks very much like your written list, minus the 5K you're a better woman than I am. Can't wait to hear about them all as you live life. As always you're adorable

  7. Thanks Bekuh :) Youre too sweet! Well see how the 5Ks go. Haha. Super tough for someone who has hated running but always wanted to. Xo

  8. A friend of mine did a Smash book of her beach trip and it was the COOLEST thing I've ever seen! I adore it! I found them at Hobby Lobby and I can't wait to start on my own! I love your Summer manifesto and I've started checking out your 28 before 29 too! Such fantastic ideas and inspirations! I know they are all things you are going to look back at fondly!

  9. I just started mine.  Mainly full of lists right now + to do stuff.  I cant wait to get into it.  Im also doing art journals + a mini book so Im trying to do it all, haha.  Thanks so much :)
