My Summer To-Dos

Summer is finally here and I want to do so many things. And I’m sure many of you have a long list as well. There’s still a bit of snow on the peaks in the Rocky Mountains here in Colorado but it’s beginning to get warmer and there’s plenty of activities to be done this summer.

I have only a few things scheduled and a lot of things that I hope to do in between. I’m a very classic (or you could say stereotypical) Colorado gal and I am hoping to spend most of my summer outside. Of course I work, boo adulting, so everything has to be either on the weekends or after work.

I’m kicking off my summer tomorrow with a trip to Oregon where I get to see my best friend, explore Portland and attend the UO graduation as an alumna. And here are the rest of my Summer To-Dos:

  • kayaking on Lake Granby, Shadow Mountain and Grand Lake
  • camping (of course)
  • Kacey Musgraves concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater
  • reading – gotta keep up on that Reading Challenge
  • backpacking trip – hopefully with the boyfriend
  • game night
  • yoga – inside and outside
  • hiking – I have a few specific hikes I’d like to complete this summer and I will certainly share them
  • outdoor movie night
  • visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
  • open an Etsy store (stay tuned for this)
  • get in shape – workout more
  • plan a vacation for the fall or next spring
  • bike riding – there’s an awesome path that I can access from my work parking lot
  • spend time with my mom, best friends and boyfriend
  • farmer’s market
  • s’mores
  • wine festival
  • spend time relaxing in my hammock
  • go to WaterWorld with my brother from another mother
  • house warming party (we still haven’t done one)
  • play frisbee golf
  • make homemade ice cream
  • get better at paddleboarding
  • craft fair
  • work on my novel
  • putt-putt golf (also maybe some real golf?)
  • shopping (this is really year-round)
  • picnic somewhere new
  • go to the movies – there’s a lot of movies coming out this summer that I am very excited about
  • campfires in the backyard
  • pay off my car
  • get back into art – drawing mostly
  • play soccer
  • paint pottery
  • get an awesome Chaco tan
  • garage/yard sale-ing
  • cook, a lot
  • make a fort and have a movie night inside it
  • star gazing
  • get crafty
  • 4th of July fireworks
  • outdoor music festival

There are plenty of things I’m sure I have forgotten, but I want to know what’s on your summer to-do list! Drop them in the comments below.

Happy Summer!
