At the start of July, I posted my Summer '17 Bucket List. Now, nearly, 3 months later, I can now give you a recap of the 8/12 items I crossed off!

2. Have a picnic with Steve

I surprised Steve with a picnic for our 2 year wedding anniversary.

4. Make our own homemade ice cream

We tried s'mores ice cream a few weeks ago and used graham crackers instead of spoons. Highly recommend.

5. Visit Nelson Atkins Museum

Finally made our way there thanks to the Strawberry Swing.

6. Travel to Little Rock, AR

We had a wonderful and adventurous time! Gave a full recap last week.

7. Dye colored streaks in my hair

I more so ended up dyeing my whole head pink, but it was fun! Wished the product lasted a little longer though.

10. Begin to clean out and decorate the house

Yes, this has started and is no where near done! But at least we're getting somewhere.

11. Attend a summer concert

One Republic at the Sprint Center. One of my favorite bands. They are so amazing live!

12. Meal prep on Sunday night

Some Sundays yes, but I could definitely do a better job.

What was on your summer bucket list? Were you able to accomplish the whole list? Hopefully one of these seasons I'll get all 12 items crossed off! Fall '17 Bucket List coming next week! 

As always, thank you for reading,

XOXO Helen

Summer '17 Bucket List

Honesty time. I did a terrible job of trying to complete my Spring Bucket List. Had my list said "Be busy every weekend" I would have completed the list very easily. In the 12 weekends of spring, 10 of them were spent either with us out of town, someone visiting us, or a big event in Kansas City. As for the weekdays, between Steven's travel and my evening yoga schedule, we barely saw each other.

But the saving grace in this whole spring madness has been summer! While we still have a few things planned, in the coming months, but for the most part we are free and I am determined to get this list done!

Spring '17 Bucket List

Spring is finally here!

Gone are the chilly winter evenings, dirty snow and slush covering the streets, and potential ice storms! Granted this past Kansas City winter was minimal, I am still happy to smell the fresh spring air.

When we moved into our new house the leaves had already fallen off the of branches and covered our dirt filled backyard. So while you will see below that one of my goals this season is to seed and clean up the yard, I am very much looking forward to seeing our trees full and green!

To get spring off to a great start, I have created a Spring Bucket List. I'm hoping to get everything crossed off by June 20th , the last day of spring! 

Visit my local Farmer's Market

Clean up and seed our backyard

I am so excited to get this season started! There is so much going on and so much to look forward too! In addition to the pending foliage, and my bucket list, we are just so busy this spring. Between weddings, graduations, and babies, there is also a lot of travel in our immediate future too.

As always, thank you for reading, XO-
