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

Saturdaze: June Update

img_7873.jpg

June felt slow mostly because of the anticipation for our Alaskan trip. I tried to keep myself busy to help the days go by faster. This resulted in a lot reading, yoga, and, of course, podcasts!

Watching: The Hills. Mostly because of this new podcast I found. Also watched all of Orange is the New Black with in 36 hours!

Drinking: Water. I have found myself dehydrated lately, so I'm trying to make an effort to drink more water.

Wearing: Yoga Pants. I officially started teacher training with CorePower Yoga in June! I'm only a few classes in, and the experience has been amazing so far!

Listening: Still completely obsessed with podcasts. But the new OneRepublic song has been on repeat for me as well.

Reading: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is still on my night stand, but I've also began The Beautiful and the Damned and One More Thing. I think I have book commitment issues.

Feeling: Empowered and calm, mostly because of all of the yoga.

Traveled: Left for Alaska!

Saw: The Lumineers at the Power and Light District, a Kansas City Royals Game, and houses! We’ve started going to open houses on the weekends to get a better idea of what we're looking for in a home. Expecting to find a relator this month so we can really dive into house hunting.

News: Mentioned above, but I've started Teaching Training with CorePower Yoga! This has been something I have had in the back of my head for YEARS, and I've finally begun! I am excited to take you guys on this journey with me.

I'm expecting to just be hot in July. After spending some time in cold weather, coming home to 90+ degrees was quite a shock! Thank goodness for air conditioning!

As always, thank you for reading, Helen
