There is a girl that I absolutely love and adore. No, not like that ya'll. But if I were like that, she' probably be my crush. Her name is Bon and she has a fun blog called... Life of Bon. Really her name is Bonnie, but I like to call her Bon like I know her in real life or something.
She recently posted about her summer goals and because
I want to wear her skin as a coat I thought that was such a good idea, I'm borrowing that idea from her! Thanks Bon.
So it's June 3rd, my son is at his first day of Summer Camp and I... I am at work. Nothing has changed for me other than wearing sandals every day in an attempt to skirt the "no flip flops" rule. And because I work, my summer goals aren't quite as foot-loose-and-fancy-free as some but hey, I'll take what I can get.
|mythical beach with no crowd|
By the way, why don't the beaches I go to ever look like that? No, no why is the sand white and the ocean blue. But why is there NO ONE there! Do these beaches even exist?
|my nook.. and dog.|
But on the other books note, Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz was just released today!! SQUEEE! Downloading now! And seriously I can't wait for June 24th for the release of James Rollins The Eye of God, then later this summer the 3rd book of the Divergent series (Allegiant), Stephen King's Sleep Doctor (the sequeal to The Shining). Holy cow talk about summer reading!!
3. Go to the Temple, lots.
I can't explain the peace and beauty of the Temple. I want to go as much as I can while I can. I want to go to LOTS of Temples. I want to be the Temple-Runner (oh that's cheesy...) but I think it would be so fun to go visit as many Temples as I can.
|Huntington Beach State Park, Myrtle Beach SC|
One place I really want to camp is at Huntington Beach State Park in Myrtle Beach. I'm thinking because we haven't made reservations and summer is almost on top of us - I may be out of luck. But I'm still going to try!!
But if I can't make it there, I just really want to get camping somewhere.
Although I'm hoping I'll have tons of fun adventures to blog about - I like to talk about real things too. Life. Not just the travels. I'm not fashion blogger (thank goodness, I spend enough money on clothes as it is) and plus, I've never bought (nor plan to) anything from J. Crew - so I'm automatically disqualified.
6. Take a photography class
There's a place here locally that offers some pretty cool photography classes. I know because a friend went to one and said... and I quote... it was pretty cool... so it must be. Plus, I have this awesome Nikon 5100 and I think I should know how to use all that awesomeness.
And I guess I should add to this that I'd like to take more pictures. Not just pictures of my son's baseball games, either. Not that I don't enjoy snapping off 200 or so cute little shots of them
7. Play golf
Or at least lob some balls at the house. I mean jeez.
8. Keep the Work Out Thing Going
Plus, I'm digging it. I like the way I feel - even if I'm not dropping back down to my 22-year old weight. HAH!
Oh and I love getting new workout clothes, so I might as well put the work in for them, right?
(No picture necessary) I really do need to take more "me time" to just chill. I find myself filling my calendar with anything and everything and then I wonder why I'm always a frantic mess.
So here's my goals. Any exciting goals for you this summer?
