Summer Done Right // Day & Night

Nothing blatantly “health-related” about this post because I haven’t done a whole lot that is health-related in the past few days…and I am perfectly happy with that. My roadtrip back to school for the Eli Young Band kickstarted a whole summer weekend with all the cliche activities that everyone should have on their to-do list. Summer Days Collage (stronglikemycoffee.com)The Simple Summer Checklist:

  • Dairy Queen Blizzards
  • A picnic is the grass
  • Read in the grass and sunshine
  • Minor flip-out over aggressive grasshoppers
  • Explore the the forest and trails (which results in picking wildflowers. Which leads to subsequent selfies with the best friend.)
  • Sunset photos with a picture-perfect water tower
  • Coffee shops for breakfast
  • Lazy afternoons with sangria
  • BBQing for dinner (grilled zucchini and sweet potatoes are a must)
  • Back to school shopping with a bestie
  • Staying outside as long as possible

Aaaand after a full day, it would be a shame if we ended the night quietly at home. A little group of us headed downtown, replaying Chase Rice’s “We Goin’ Out” no fewer than 8 times as we got ready.

To add to the perfection of the weekend, Friday night is Country Night at my favorite bar :) Country music, line-dancing, yard jar drinks. People in cowboy boots and hats.

Why does a cocktail taste so much better in a mason jar?!

When everyone else seemed to know every step of the Footloose choreography to Big & Rich’s “Fake ID” we agreed that we would Youtube instructions before going out next time so we could join the fun ;)

This summer weekend was stereotypical in every way and my heart was so happy :)

On Tuesday I’ll have to share some of my “Extra-Credit Exercises” for the week after an extra-fun-but-not-so-healthy weekend like this one. Speaking of which, it’s time for SUNDAY LONG RUN.

 

 

What’s on your Summer Bucket List?
