The end of summer is coming. . .

I know, I know, I'm a little late with my latest entry.
I didn't have a good idea in my head of what to write at the end of July. So, I decided to let it go and not make my self-imposed deadline. But since that day, I've been thinking about what I should have or could have written about and it occurred to me that summer is almost over. It's already August 9th. Back to school sales are in full swing. After that sunk in, I realized that I have not fully enjoyed my summer at all. I am on day 20-something of what will be at least 34 straight days in a row of working. That got me thinking about what I haven't done yet & that I need to do in order to feel like I've truly enjoyed summer.
Of course, that meant the creation of a list. A list which I am going to share with you. Below are all of the things that I intend to do in order to fulfill my summer fun requirements.

In no particular order, I need to:

~ Go to a Cubs game (that is actually happening tomorrow!)
~ Get a pedicure
~ Eat a red, white and blue bomb pop from the ice cream truck
~ Go to the Farmer's market
~ Go to the Lakefront
~ Go to the Flea Market
~ Take a trip (camping with the family Labor Day weekend will have to do for this one.)
~ Play in the water (sprinkler, pool or rain) with my nieces and nephews
~ Take a day off to just enjoy the day!

What do you like to do that lets you know it's summertime? Are any of these things on your list?
