My Summer Bucket List

Happy Memorial Day y'all! Another taste of summer break this weekend has wishing these last 9 school days would fly by! I got home about an hour ago from a visit with family in Oklahoma. This was only my second visit to Oklahoma. I shopped, ate, and saw some gorgeous views.

I certainly don't have any views like this in my part of Texas!

I also paid a visit to the Oklahoma City Memorial. My family lost a relative in the bombing. I don't remember much but I do remember attending the funeral service. I tried looking for the family member's name but wasn't successful; maybe next time.

I'm linking up with Mrs. Jump's Class to share my summer bucket list. 

Here's my list in no particular order:
1. My humble 'lil blog will be turning 1 in June! I want to get a blog makeover. This item on my list is a MUST!
2. I've got to try my hardest to not be too lazy this summer and keep up my gym routine. Since it'll be blazing hot I'll switch to working out in the morning instead of 5:00 in the afternoon. 
3. Going along with #2 on my list, this summer I vow to wear a tank top in public. I conquered my shorts in public fear last summer and want to add to it. It may sound silly and vain but I've literally sweated my badonkadonk off on this healthier lifestyle journey, and wearing a tank top in public will be an accomplishment I never thought possible.
4. Read at least a couple of books. Allow me to keep it real with this one. No, I'm not talking some professional development book although I do read those. I'm talking something mindless I can read by the pool or under a cool fan. I know I'm not the only teacher who cracks open a cheesy romance novel or two. 
5. Go somewhere! I'm one travel loving girl who can't get enough of new and familiar places! My heart sings a happy song whenever I pack a suitcase. 
Hershey, PA was one of my first trips I took after I started teaching.

San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities I've visited hands down.

I try to visit New Orleans every year; maybe I can squeeze it in this summer.
6. Discover and learn about one new app/techie thing I can use next school year.
7. I MUST attend one EdCamp this summer There are 3 happening in Texas. I won't be happy if I don't make it to at least one.
8. I've already decided I'll be bringing home 3 classroom projects to work on during break. 3 and that's it! As much as I love teaching, I want to spend most of my time relaxing.
9. Eat lunch and go to the bathroom whenever I want!
10. In the chaos of these last 9 days, I want to remain as calm and possible so I can enjoy the time I have left with my minis before they're gone.
