my summer list

i know that everyone and their mother has been posting their summer to-do lists lately, but you guys know that i've really been trying to get out there and enjoy our first summer together in a few years, so i decided to make one too.

in no particular order:
1. .
from here
go on all the bike rides: i love my bike. and my neighborhood is perfect for biking. plus, i feel like i'm flying when i ride my bike, so obviously i need more of that in my life.
2. Baseball
from here
go see at least one Red Wings game: the Red Wings are the minor league baseball team here in Rochester and the tickets are so cheap. secretly, i just love the sounds of baseball and it's the one game that i totally understand. plus, we all know Dippin Dots are the real reason every girl goes.
3. red maxi skirt
from here
rock a maxi skirt: i finally found a maxi skirt that i think i love, but i can't find anything to wear it with! so i need to work on that. run run!
from here
run my first 5k: today is actually the day! i've been training since i moved back home after school and at 9 this morning, i'm running my first race ever. i've mentioned it before, but i used to HATE running, and now i look forward to my run everyday. it's a change that i'm glad i made.
5. Fireworks
from here
watch some fireworks: i happen to think that fireworks are one of the most romantic things around, but Ben and i have never gone to see any together! the first summer we were together, we did our own things for the 4th and since then, he hasn't been around. so tonight, we're going to go downtown to the firework show above High Falls and watch those pretty things. i'm so excited. theater
from here
go to the drive-in theatre: drive-in's are so much fun! watching a movie outside! bringing your own food! cuddling up when it gets cold! my whole family has plans to go this Friday night for Jessa's birthday, so that's gonna be awesome. we just have to hope for no rain.
7.Picnic! Picnic! Picnic! Yay!
from here
go for picnics: summer is made for picnics. and i happened to get an adorable basket at my bridal shower! so Ben and i have a whole date day planned for tomorrow to get some fun wedding errands done and then go to a park, have a picnic lunch, and write our vows. it's going to be such a good day.
8.magical ceremony setup with hundreds of wisteria flowers!
from here
get married: in case you hadn't heard, we have plans to do this as well. July 13 is going to be such a beautiful summer day [we're hoping], and we're going to have the prettiest, most fun wedding i've ever gotten married in. it's going to be awesome. this automatically makes it the best summer ever, even if none of the other things get done.

what are you guys hoping to do this summer? what fun summer things have you already done? i wanna know! [and maybe steal them for my list too :) ]
