Summer 2014 Bucket List Recap
I simply can not believe that summer is almost over! Summer doesn’t officially end until September 22nd, but since Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, I thought it would be a good idea to look back at my Summer Bucket List and see how I did!
Watch fireworks – Y’all I saw some amazing fireworks this summer! We were in Denver for the 4th of July and from our balcony we could see more than 20 different fireworks displays! We saw the displays at Coors Field, Sports Authority Field at Mile High and fireworks from lots of communities surrounding Denver!
Bonfire at the beach – Not yet, but it’s happening next week!
Host a giant slumber party – I got to do this not once, but twice! First I went to summer camp with middle schoolers so I was lucky enough to share a cabin with 15 middle school girls…don’t be jealous! Then in Denver I hosted a total of about 25 people over the 12 days I was there…so much fun!
Stand up paddleboarding – I tried SUP and I only fell in the water twice…so that’s not too bad for a first try!
Roast marshmallows – Does it count if we ended up having to roast the marshmallows in the microwave?!?
Leap out of my comfort zone – This happened. I promise. And next Friday I will be sharing a post with all of the details so come back next Friday to hear all about it!
Vacation in Denver – I spent twelve days in Denver and loved every minute of it! I had quite a few yummy breakfasts and adventures in Denver!
Visit a few new cupcake shops – Definitely checked this off the list! I couldn’t even begin to list my favorites but here are a few of the ones I went to this summer…Mountain Cupcakes, Church of Cupcakes, and Pinky’s!
Try 3 new classes at the gym – Well, at least I can say I tried three new classes, although I wouldn’t say I was very good at some of these classes!
What adventures did you have this summer?

You hosted 12 people at a sleepover in a town you were visiting?! Wow! I’m sorry I missed that story (is there a post I should go back to?) And thanks to you, now I know what SUP is. Ha!
There wasn’t a post about it, but let’s just say it was quite an adventure!
I love your list! It looks like you had a ton of fun and awesome experiences! :] I’d love to try stand-up paddleboarding someday!

Sounds like a fun-filled summer! And I say you count those marshmallows, because however marshmallows get good and warm and gooey makes them better. 🙂
Great bucket list! We have a cabin on a large lake and we’re on a point so we getbt I see quite a few displays on the 4th too – I love it! I think all of your ideas on your bucket lists are good ones and it looks like you did a great job of accomplishing them!
You had a great bucket list! I still love that you love cupcakes so much! I have to stop in at least 1 cupcake shop in every city I visit!

I’m not going to lie, I “roast” marshmallows on the stove all the time whenever I am feeling like a s’more.
