Summer Bucket List 2017

Summer is upon us and that mean’s its time to make a summer bucket list! Although I live in a tropical oasis year round, summer looks totally different for everyone. I hope we can all agree to some degree that it means buying cute new swimsuits, tans and all the ice cream and watermelon you can eat.

When I stumbled upon Stitch Fix’s Ultimate Summer Bucket List a few weeks ago, I just knew I had to create my own summer bucket list! Whats funny is that more than half of the items on their list I do almost year round, like go paddleboarding, walk in the sand, get a bright pedicure or watch a movie in the park.In the last month I have done all of those things haha. Last Friday my boyfriend and I actually dressed up as a Star Wars characters, a Jedi and Sith, and went to a local park to watch the Star Wars Movie. I guess that counts as a really unique movie in the park!! I knew that if I was going to create my own list, I had to mix it up quite a bit and make it really fun and exciting.

My Summer Bucket List:

  • Paddleboard at:
    • Vero Beach (the water there is usually glassy blue!)
    • Ten Thousand Islands, specifically through the mangrove caves to shoot a video with my GoPro
    • To a random island in the middle of the river and set up an Eno
  • Make macaroons
  • Finish re-decorating my new bedroom (consists of creating a DIY shiplap wallbuying a new comforter, hanging up wall decor and possibly investing in a modern bookcase)
  • Hot tub at a hotel in town
  • Take a trip to St. Pete (West Coast of Florida)
  • Watch the sunrise on the East Coast of Florida and then drive across the state to watch the sunset on the West Coast of Florida
  • Visit a Botanical Garden
  • Make Blueberry Popsicle’s
  • Camp at Jetty Park by the beach
  • Start a hashtag called #summerpineapplehunt2017 (I did this the last two summers and would post photos with the  hashtag whenever I found pineapples around town! I still get pineapple photos sent to me to this day!)
  • Do something new and thrilling
  • Take sparkler photos on 4th of July
  • Blow up my giant flamingo float and ride it on the waves at the beach
  • Take a bike ride around Cocoa Beach
  • Longboard at sunset
  • Go to St. Augustine
  • Shop at a new outlet mall

What does summer mean to you? Do you have a summer bucket list started already?! I’d love to know in the comments.
