  1. That sounds like a fun list! If you do all that, you'll be sure to enjoy the summer! :-)

  2. LOL! You are right - we do have a similar list! :)

    Good luck and hope you have a fantastic summer!

    PS. Water park. What a great idea!!!!

  3. I still can't believe the Hawks won. Just seemed...well, like we'll never hear the end of it now. Just like the '85 Bears. Oh, Superfans.

    And books? I think you should try The Linnet Bird. It has a terrible cover and the summary does it no justice. So it doesn't LOOK great but it IS. Try it. Also, everyone keeps recommending the Stieg Larsson books to me. They're on my list to try. Finally, I suggest When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris. Awesome, awesome, hilarity.

  4. I want to go to the beach, THIS WEEKEND, haha. I'm also trying to read at least three books this summer. And run, run run run a lot.

    Good luck getting that all in! :)

  5. What a great list and what a great summer plan! I love it.

    Maybe not the cleaning part... but everything else!

  6. Let me know how you accomplish #4 - I should put that on my list too :D

  7. Your list includes a lot of the things on my to-do list. Especially clean more & bake brownies. =)

    Good luck achieving all of those things!

    You forgot; the World Cup Kicked off today!!!! =)

    Have a fab weekend!

    PS. I'm so jealous, I wnat to be in a hotel right now. lol
