I’m linking up with Leslie from Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After for her seasonal bucket list series. I never posted my Summer Bucket List last month, so this is technically the first update. I’ve crossed off some of these items already, but I still wanted to share the full list!

  7. Get My Hair Cut/Thinned Out
  8. Watch Another Movie Via Netflix Party
  9. Use My BlendJet to Make Smoothies
  10. Have The Melting Pot To-Go
  11. Read Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner
  12. Celebrate My Blog’s 13th Anniversary in August

This is my list in full. However, since today is the first update on our lists, I’ll share what I’ve accomplished so far below—

  1. Swim at Night – Yes, I’ve done this a couple times and I hope to continue doing so when I can
  2. Beach Read by Emily Henry – I have not started this yet!
  3. Have a Fire Pit/Make S’mores – Yes, I have done this!
  4. Watch Hamilton – Yep, it was so good!!
  5. Watch Sweet Magnolias – I’m a few episodes in, so this is ongoing
  6. Paint My Nails – not yet!
  7. Get My Hair Cut/Thinned Out – I haven’t done anything with my hair since pre-quarantine, so I really need to go
  8. Netflix Party Movie – I’ve done this a couple times with a friend but I haven’t done another so hopefully soon!
  9. BlendJet – I got one of these for my birthday and I need to start making smoothies – haven’t done this yet!
  10. Melting Pot To-Go – Yes, and it was wonderful!!!
  11. Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner – I have not read it yet!
  12. Blogoversary– My blog turns 13 next month, so I’ll be figuring out some sort of celebration!

My Current Total: 4/12 (and I’ve started watching Sweet Magnolias so that’s in progress). 

I don’t think that’s too bad for being a month into the summer! I’m sure I can get the rest ticked off in the next couple months. Do you have a Summer Bucket List? Please share what’s on yours in the comments, or link to your post if you have one!!

  1. I started Sweet Magnolias, it’s ok. I watched Hamilton and made S’mores too! Haven’t swum at night, though I love doing that in general!

  2. I’m glad you’ve been able to tick some things off your summer list! That’s awesome. I still haven’t gotten around to watching Hamilton on Disney+. I will though… If I had a summer list, it would be on it. 🙂

  3. I haven’t had a chance to read Beach Read yet, but want to! Smores is my favorite tradition that we started up every weekend this summer. Zoe looks forward to it so much.

  4. This is a great list! I agree that Hamilton was amazing… I’m still obsessed over here. I loved Beach Read, I thought it was a great summer read–light, but not overly fluffy. And the fire pit/s’mores idea is always a good one!

  5. I didn’t even make a list for this summer and it really bums me out. We have a county fair literally down the street from us going on this week and I told the kids we aren’t going. On a GOOD year it is moderately filthy, but this year COVID numbers are going up here and eh…. I just don’t want to risk it. Needless to say, all four are pretty bummed. I’m hoping I can convince Matt to go hiking or something so we can at least be tourists in our own area.

  6. #1 and #3! Good for you. I’ve swam in the ocean now I want to swim in the lake 😛 Great list, Lauren! I need to paint my nails, too. Wish I needed to thin my hair but that’s a pipedream.
    So. I read Big Summer (just finished it a week ago). I wasn’t crazy about it. Found lots of it boring actually. I will be interested to hear your take on it. You may enjoy it, many have. Happy summer to you!

  7. I have had summer bucket lists in the past- but I didn’t make one this year. I do still have a mental one though. Swim at least once. Go to the beach at least once. Enjoy time outside. Read, write, and draw. I am trying to do more “for me” each day. Good luck with your list. Seems like you are making a lot of progress. 🙂

  8. I desperately need a haircut (it’s been about 5 months) but I’m not comfortable going to a salon. And since I’m working from home it’s not like anyone sees it anyway. LOL I had one of my first dates with my husband at a Melting Pot restaurant. Good memories. 🙂

  9. Thanks for the reminder that we all need to treat this summer like any other and make adjustments where necessary BUT keep the spirit of the season. I hope to make s’mores this summer too and just purchased some vegan marshmallows. Also I really need a haircut/ and a manicure. The latter I can give myself but bryan said he’d give me a haircut and like, is it the worst idea in the world? I dunno anymore lol/

  10. Beach Read was so good! I hope you like it too. I want to start Sweet Magnolias. How are you liking it? I just saw someone above say it ends on a cliffy! Ack! I definitely need a haircut, too!

  11. We are going to the Melting Pot early next month, ours doesn’t offer to go. I think it’ll be pretty safe, hopefully! I love that place. I have been wanting to watch Watch Sweet Magnolias on Netflix, too. We need to finish Handmaid’s Tale first!

      Enjoy The Melting Pot! I’m sure they are doing what they can to make it safe. I’m glad the one near me offers to-go though!

  12. You’re doing a great job on your bucket list! I love making smores by the firepit! We watched Hamilton the other night and enjoyed it too! I didn’t know you could get Melting Pot to go. I’m going to have to look into that!
