Top Ten Things I Want To Do This Summer {Linky}

The famous Deanna Jump is hosting a super fun linky party to make a list of the top ten things you want to do this summer! I am definitely in summer mode already, so I thought it would be fun to make my list of things I want to get accomplished this summer! Click on the button to link up with the party over at Mrs. Jump’s Class!

{1.} Get Married!!


I finally get to marry my sweetheart this summer! We’re having a huge, casual outdoor shindig at our place. We own 4.5 acres out in the country, so it’ll be a lovely afternoon ceremony followed by a fun evening of delicious bbq, drinks, and dancing! So excited! I have tons to do to get ready for it though. Eeek! 55 days left!

{2.} Swimming


We have to get a new pool for the dogs, because this one ended up in the trash when we moved. They love to swim! I’d like to get a larger one so that I could fit more than just my feet in it! :)

{3.} Camping


We go camping every year and I hope that this year won’t be an exception! We’ll just have to make some adjustments with the baby and probably stick close to home. Good thing there are a million campgrounds within a 30 minute radius from our house!

{4.} Play Outside


Zoe is already loving the sunshine. We live in the country, so she better get used to playing outside and getting dirty! No staying inside playing video games for this girl! ;)

{5.} Read


I love to read non-school related books. I’m not going to lie though… I love cheesey romance novels. My brain can’t handle anything too deep usually, so I like the light fluffy stuff. Kate Perry is one of my favourite authors. Her books are very entertaining. This is the newest one coming out next month. Can’t wait!!

{6.} Family Time


We have two family reunion/get-togethers this summer as well as a weekend cabin getaway for my mother-in-law’s birthday. I can’t wait! (That’s my younger brother in the pic.. he is one proud uncle!!)

{7.} Movies in the Park


One of the parks in our city hosts movies nights every Friday night in August. It’s free and so much fun! I hope I can catch a couple!

{8.} School Stuff

I know, I know, I shouldn’t have this on my list… but I have tons of ideas floating in my head and a to do list of things I want to do for when I go back to work. At least I have a good year and a bit to get this all done though. Did I mention I’m not going back until September 2015? That is insane. I need something to do, besides my cute little munchkin, to keep me busy! :) This is my newest math centre pack. I am so excited about it! It is back to school centres, but really could be used at any time during the school year. Click the picture above to check it out on TpT.

{9.} Scrapbook


I hope to actually have time to finish up some scrapbooks I started for some past vacations, as well as start a new one for baby Zoe! I already have tons of pictures of her (can you tell I like to show her off??) and need somewhere to put them all!

{10.} Relax!


Summer is definitely the time to find at least a few minutes to just lay back and relax. This was taken a few summers ago at my sister-in-law’s place, but we are planning to install one in our yard this summer. We already have the perfect spot picked out and I can just imagine myself laying there with a nice, refreshing drink in my hand!

What are your plans for the summer? Go link up!
