Summer Bucket List: (Almost) Complete

I consider summer to be over when I start school again in August, because really, summer as we know it is over.  School is now in session and I can tell this year will be a great one!

Anyways, do any of you remember the bucket list I created for those (short) summer months? Yeah, me either, really.  Oops.  It's not like I didn't try to complete most of the list but summer just got away from me.

So let's review, shall we? (teacher mode: on)

This summer I wanted to:
1. (Have a bonfire with s'mores) Did not happen. Not once. Why this didn't happen I couldn't tell you. I love bonfires.  And s'mores.
2. (Go boating on a lake) Did this multiple times! Loved my few trips to the Ozarks.

3. (Go to an outdoor concert) Did this! There was recently an outdoor concert festival complete with a ferris wheel that of course I went on!
4. (Watch the sunset) Did this.  I'm biased but Nebraska has the best.
5. (Go to an outdoor movie) Sadly, I never went to an outdoor movie.  The outdoor theaters were even playing disney movies- which I love!
6. (Go to the state park water park) Did this! The wave pool is my fav but seriously, why do people decide to go the same place I'm going to?? It was majorly over-crowded but a good time.
7. (Go fishing) No...unfortunately no.
8. (Do a DIY furniture project) I bought the supplies for a project, does that count?
9. (Take pictures of a family/couple) I didn't take any pictures of anyone but pictures were taken of me this summer- cue emoji of girl flipping her hair.

10. (Create a budget and stick to it) I started and was really sticking to a budget, then fun and shopping got in the way.

I did so many fun things this summer that weren't on my bucket list but I'm glad I made one and completed a fair number of them! Anyone do anything that I should be adding to next years bucket list?? Also, look out for a fall bucket list completed by me and the boyfriend.  Can't wait for my favorite time of year!
