1. Redecorate the Living Room
Of all the rooms in my house, the living room decor has never really thrilled me. So, I'm adding a bit of color and have found some new furniture pieces that I already love...it'll look something like this:
Although I've lived in Maine almost my entire life, I've NEVER been to Peak's Island! I live just outside of Portland and am thus there almost every weekend, however, Peak's is accessed only by ferry service. It's a pretty place to visit and I'm making it a priority this summer!
You may remember that last summer I used the Couch to 5k running plan to successfully train for and complete my first 5k. Since then, I've been a running machine and have actually learned to really love it (ok maybe not LOVE it but at least a don't MIND it). This summer my plan is to run my first 10k and was lucky enough to make it into the Beach to Beacon race lottery. It's a pretty challenging course but I'm excited to reach a new goal!
4. Go Horseback Riding
I've only done this once, when I was about 13, and I hated it. I think it's time I give those beautiful horses another chance...plus, one of my friends really wants to go and I'm always up for trying new things!
5. Build a Deck & Patio
My house is almost two years old and I've lived without a deck for too long (yes, this is a want, not a need)! So, one of my friends has graciously offered to come and build a deck with me! Just bought a patio table and chairs from Target on super clearance in anticipation!
6. Go on a Road Trip
I'm going on a short trip to Burlington, Vermont to do a little mini 'foodie' tour! Chocolate...cheese...wine...and of course, Ben and Jerry's! Should be fun!
I need to slow down and be OK with just sitting around and reading a good book! My favorite genre would have to be autobiographies...I just like reading about other people's lives through their own voices. My FAVORITE of all time is Tina Fey's Bossypants! I read it once every summer because it's just that funny!
I'm SOOOOO excited about this one...my best girlfriends and I are going to see Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z in concert at Fenway Park this summer!!! Should be a wicked fun time!
This may sound like a weird item to list, but this donut shop has gotten rave reviews!! Since donuts are literally my favorite food on earth, a visit (or two) seems like a no-brainer!!
OK...I'll let you know how I do in terms of accomplishing these goals! Happy Summer!
