// Stick to a budget
The most boring summer wish list item there ever was. Due to our current situation, we have to learn how to budget. There is no more, oh, we should do that or yes, a budget, next month definitely. It's now or yesterday. That definitely means free summertime activities are a part of our fun. Good thing it's the time of year for carnivals and fireworks!
//Go to the beach at least once
Would you believe I didn't step foot in the sand last summer?! The travesty of such a thing, I know. This year I am making myself go at least once if not a few more times. It's such a relaxing thing to sit on the beach and listen to the waves. And I have a bikini body, as in, I put a bikini on my body.
//Visit the pool to relax
We have this nice, on property, pool that I can walk to. But I never do. Being able to come home for a good 40 minute lunch means I should be parking my butt at that pool quite frequently. I'm sure my boss wouldn't notice my bathing suit under my work attire.
//Make the most of my down time
There are nights where I am about to go to bed and all I can think about is, what did I just do for the last 4 hours? It usually involves aimless Internet activity or TV watching. Having just accepted a freelance job, I have to get this under control sooner rather later.
//Read a full book, just for fun
When we were in Walgreens the other night, I saw a new book out from a Nora Roberts series I love. Yes, I read romance novels. And then I thought about the last time I really sat down and read a book like that. A book that I really enjoyed and I could get lost in the words. This goes nicely with my trips to the beach, pool and making the most of my down time.
//Get a summer polish look
It's not secret my nail polish game has been lacking, Just look at every picture I've taken the past few months. With a recent subscription to Julep, I have plenty of colors to play around with.
What plans do you have for the summer?
