Summer 2013 to-do list

While I know summer didn’t technically start until today, June 21st, I have already been excited about summer – 80 degrees, sweat burning my eyes while running, little baby shorts, and smoothies for dinner. . .yeah, summers already here! So, that got me thinking about things that I HAVE to do this summer.  . . and of course, I made a list!! There is just something about the warm, sunshine weather that us Minnesotan’s only get about 3 months out of the year, that makes us want to be active, get out there and do things. And I want to take full advantage and not miss a thing. So, here is my summer 2013 to-do list!

1. Run around the lake ~14 miles


2. Check out newish local ice cream shop – Mom and Pop’s Ice Cream

3. Picnic at Minneopa Falls


4. Farmer’s Markets – Mankato , the cities, Eau Claire


5. Country Fest – 2013!!


6. Paint fingernails a fun summer color

7. Run the Lakes in Minneapolis .  .. Becky, Melanie, Sue – you guys in?

8. Spend an afternoon on Grand Ave. in St. Paul

9. Waseca water park

10. Picnic with friends –> Jodi and Sarah I’m talking about you guys!! Smile 

What’s on your summer to-do list?? Anything I need to add to my list?

    We’re definitely in for a picnic! That would be so much fun! 🙂

  2. What a great summer to-do list! Looks like you’ve got the perfect balance of running, fun in the sun, and good eats. We’ve been spending every weekend at the pool, and our girls love being in the water. And there’ s a bonus for us. Lots of pool time = long naps!!

  3. Man, I don’t think I will be able to keep up with you two running ladies! I could definitely go for a short run though! I am officially adding spend a day on Grand Ave. to my summer list too. I love it there yet never spend time there!

      If I can run with someone, I will run ANY pace! I love to run with people and chat so no speedy shoes for me. 🙂 Maybe we should plan a Grand Ave day together??

  4. Oh my goodness, I want to come hang with you this summer haha! It sounds like you guys are going to be having a blast with all the running, water parks, and tasty eats! I love going to the beach, eating ice cream, and checking out farmers markets in the summer. Hopefully, we’ll be out at one tomorrow for some fresh local produce! Have a great Friday, love!
