30 Things to Do This Summer

As much as I complain about the weather in Texas, I really do love living in this state. It's hot all day during the summer, but it cools off quite a bit (to like, the 90s) in the evenings, perfect for spending time outside. Here's my "bucket list" for this summer.

1) Go swimming.

My family's cat when I was younger. He used to love standing in the pool. Weird cat.

2) Sit and read on the back porch with a beer.

3) Go see a Round Rock Express baseball game with hubs and my sister- and brother-in-law.

4) Eat a sno-cone.

5) Watch Matt's college roommate get married.

6) Go camping at the lake.

7) Take a trip.

8) Go to a barbecue.

9) Go to a bar and sit on the patio.

10) Spit watermelon seeds.

11) Play disc golf.

12) Play mini-golf.

13) Go to a waterpark.

14) Watch fireworks.

15) Wear a floppy hat.

16) Wear flip-flops.

17) Ride on a boat.

18) Go to an outdoor concert or festival.

19) Drive with the windows rolled down and the music up loud. (19b, Find a summer jam to listen to on repeat.)

20) Eat ice cream in a cone, not in a bowl.

21) Go on a picnic.

22) Watch the stars.

23) Stay up all night.

24) See the sun rise.

25) Dangle my feet in the water.

26) Go exploring.

27) Read something totally fluffy and un-literary.

28) Paint toenails a ridiculously bright color.

29) Go for a walk after the sun goes down (or before it comes up).
