My Bucket List
Have A Picnic
In a park or in the mountain, this backpack inspires me to go on a hike and have lunch with a beautiful view.
Go On A Hike
I got the book Best Hikes Near Seattle last year. I love it because it’s in color and every hike has a picture and a map going with it! You can also look at hike by level, length, etc. Click here to see if they have the guide for your area!
Rent A Segway
I’ve been looking at the deals on Groupon for a while now. It’s decided this summer I will finally do a Segway tour in Seattle!
I got this inflatable kayak for my husband for his birthday a couple of years ago. We absolutely love it and try to take it out to the lake as much as possible. But this year I would love to go kayaking in a river or a larger lake!
Read A Book Laying On A Blanket
You know about my obsession with books. If you haven’t check it out yet, click here to see my summer reading list. Most of these books are so small and easy to read that I want to spend one day laying under the sun and finishing the book!
Have Brunch With Friends
In the article How to Organize a Fun Weekly Brunch, I talked about this new thing we do on Saturdays at our place. Well, I want to make sure that we continue this tradition so I added it to my bucket list 😀
See An Outdoor Movie
During the summer, there are a few parks that show movies in Seattle. All you have to do is grab a comfortable blanket and enjoy the movie 🙂 I’ve never done it so I really want to make it for a summer night date!
Watch The Sunset
This is one of my favorite things to do but I feel that I don’t do it enough. I love taking pictures of the sunset. This Christmas I got this action camera for my husband, and he’s now the one asking me to go take pictures. He does time-lapses and videos while I take photos. I’m really excited for this summer!
Water Gun Fight
I used to have water guns with my roommates in college. It was a lot of fun since we could start a fight at any moment. Sometimes it feels good to have fun like a kid!
This is another inspiration from Groupon. I’ve seen a few deals for scavenger hunts in Seattle. I think it could be a fun thing to do this summer!
I remember going fruit picking during summer school when I was a kid. It was a lot of fun and I want to try it again. You can find a pick-your-own farm near you on PickYourOwn.org
Make Ice Cream
One of our friends gave us an ice cream maker last month. We haven’t tried it yet but I can’t wait to make pistachio and hazelnut ice cream!
I love looking at the sky at night and this year I want to improve my night sky photography skills. My goal is to take photos of the stars circling around the mountain!
Unplug For A Day
At least one day during the weekend I want to turn off my phone and my computer to relax and enjoy the day for real.
Take Archery Lessons
Last year we took an archery lesson with my team at work. It was so much fun that I want to do it again! I found a good deal on Groupon for two people, I think we will do this as a date 🙂
Last summer we went mini golfing once for our Friday Date night. It was so much fun that I want to do it again this year. Once again you will find cheaper deals on Groupon.
Go To The Farmers Market
We are starting to eat more healthy at home, this means more cooking and more vegetables. There are a few Farmers Market in this area, I would love to go at least once a month.
Go To The Aerial Adventure Park
Last time I did one of these aerial adventure parks I think I was 15. I remember going all the way to the black parkour, which was the most difficult one and having my legs a bit short for it 😀 So I had to jump from one step to another. It was so much fun that I want to do it again. Plus there is a good deal on Groupon for the one next to where I live!
Create A Summer Playlist
I started this playlist 3 years ago and add new songs every year. I love listening and singing in my car, so this became my go-to list when I am in a good mood because of the weather!
