So-Far Summer...

Does anyone remember that "Summer List 2012" I made a few months back?  Well, I've been working on it.  I have been hittin' it hard, in fact.  Haha!  It's sad because I have lost absolutely no more weight because I spend my focus achieving the things on that list and not on the gym.  Haha!  On a positive note, I have completed half of my list and am on my way to completing the entire thing.  I make a summer list every year and this is the first year I will probably complete my whole list.  Pretty much, this summer is already legen... wait for it... dary! Yep. Legendary.

Here's some snap-shots on my life during 2012 so far...

 I went to Porcupine Pub and Grille (SO good!) with my sister, Natalie, AND hit up Seven Peaks to chill/tan by the pool!
 This was NOT on my list, but it is a yearly tradition... When Heidi comes to visit we get together to catch-up, talk about Germany and where we all are at in life.  I LOVED meeting up with Anya and Heidi for a dish session - amazing!
 Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches with my mom and Eliza!
 Nature scavenger hunt time I made for E!
 I really wanted to make the melted crayon project off of pinterest, and so I did it with Eliza.  They both turned out adorable, it kept us busy, and was a lot of fun!
Above and below are pics of my FIRST Twilight Concert Series concert, Raphael Saadiq, with Matt and Meg!  It wasn't amazing, but it was a good concert and I had fun!
 Harry Potter Movie Marathon with Derek, Cami, Zoey, and Natalie where I made "Acid Pops" and had pasties, lemon drops, creepy crawlers, licorice wands, and chips w/ salsa for everyone to snack on!
In the middle of our HP marathon we took a break to watch some fireworks (it was the 14th of July, after all) AND write our names in sparklers while taking pictures!  We got some good ones... :)  Check another thing off my list!

(Above: This is one of my favorite things we did.)
 I wanted to play in the fountains at Gateway, but the ones at City Creek are virtually the same thing and so I'll count it!  Taking Zoey was awesome - she loved it! I might still take E to the Gateway to run around in the fountains though... :)
One of the FIRST things Cami and I did together was go see the Up House!  It was on my list and she was all about helping me check things off... We both thought it was worth the 20 minute drive.  Haha!  It was funny too because we read the sign outside the house that said, "...take a few QUICK pics..." and after out ten minute photo-shoot the front door opened and I was SURE we were about to get chastised.  Instead, the owner asked if she could take a picture of us together!  It was super sweet... and she took about five pictures of us together and chatted a bit before we left.  Way cool. :)
 Another thing not on my list was going to Tucanos, but Derek and Cami took the family... so I'm adding it onto the list!  Haha... Check out Zoey's shirt... Yep.  It's truth.

Things are pretty great this summer... I can't complain too much.  I'm a blessed girl.

Song of the Day: "No Light, No Light," by Florence + The Machine.  LOVE.  Enjoy!
