Summer Bucket List

June 07, 2019
Happy Friday, friends! While it's not officially summer, I do feel if we don't take advantage of every weekend from here until September, then we'll blink and the summer will fly by. Considering we didn't do too much traveling last year at this time because I was pregnant, I'm really looking forward to day trips & lots of fun activities with Sophia this year. One thing on my list that I checked off last weekend was cutting my hair. Not a big thing for most, but after 9.5 months with no hair cut, it was time and we chopped off 7 inches!! 
Denim Jacket || T-Shirt || Cargo Pants || Espadrilles  not pictured, but I live in them!

In no particular order, here's a few things I want to do this Summer! 
  • Day trip to Newport || A little under two hours of the city, you get to explore mansions, beaches & have great seafood. I can't wait to introduce Sophia to one of my favorite cities. 
  • Weekend or day trip to the Cape || The Cape is to New Englander's what the Hampton's are to New Yorkers. I wont say it's a quick escape out of the city because traffic is normally a nightmare during summer weekends. Hoping to find a great gem of a place to stay for a weekend later this summer.  
  • Visit the zoo || This one should be relatively easy to check off the list and hopefully one we'll do this weekend. 
  • Celebrate Sophia's first birthday || I don't know how it's possible, but in August we'll be celebrating Sophia's first birthday and in true planner fashion I already have a to do list a milke long! I'm pretty pumped about the theme, location & most of all - celebrating my sweet girl. 
  • Strawberry or blueberry picking || We went blueberry picking a few years ago and it was such a cute little adventure. Would love to check this one off with the babe. 
  • A few trips to the beach || Pretty self explanatory, but getting out to the beach should be a lot easier now that we have a car!
  • One weekend night away. just me and Gary
  • Family photos || Funny enough, I'm planning our family photos right around the same time we did maternity photos last year. I'd love to go back and have Sophia in all of the spots that we did our maternity photos! 
  • Continue on my mission of finding the best frose & lobster rolls 
  • Picnic in the park || For that random weekend day that we don't have anything planned and the weather is gorgeous, I'd love to do a picnic in the Public Garden & let Sophia explore!
What's on your summer bucket list?


  1. First of all, I love that outfit and secondly, this is the sweetest bucket list. I hope you do them all and there are lots of picnics! Happy Weekend babe! xo

  2. A kidless night away is a MUST!! So looking forward to seeing YOU this summer and celebrating the birthday girl!! XOXO, R

  3. I love your haircut B! I’m a fan of the medium length. Can’t believe Sophia will be one and I think it’s super sweet to get photos taken where your maternity ones were! May I throw out there that your Newport trip should be a certain weekend in July?! Lol have a great weekend friend!

  4. What a great little list!! You will rock this! Lobster rolls - mmmmmmm

  5. I feel the same way, have to take advantage of the days and weekends while you can. Your hair looks so great! I always back out when I say I'm going to cut a bunch off. We love Newport too! I'm hoping we can get that back on our list to make a visit.

  6. I love your new hair cut! And we've got some day trips planned in our area this summer--day trips are always so fun!

  9. Girl, your haircut is flawless! Also, I loveee your summer bucket list! You know I always tune in for your lobster roll roundup haha Ryan had his first last year, and he LOVED it. I finally got him hooked!

  10. This sounds great! Can I recommend adding some balsamic to the strawberries you find?? I just learned about this goodness this week and I can't recommend it enough now! ;)

  11. Your hair looks so healthy and shiny! This sounds like a perfect New England bucket list. I can't believe she is already going to be one!

  12. Oh my goodness! I can't believe she's almost a year old already! I ove your bucket list, they all seem so fun!

  13. Your hair looks so fresh and healthy - love it! These are great summer bucket list items, I might steal a few of these ideas for my own list.
