  4. I like #25. Especially the take advantage part!

  5. You know, I don't have a summer bucket list! Maybe I'll make one for next summer! I am working on my tan though and "Water For Elephants" was great! I can't wait to see "Something Borrowed". Have you guys tried "Apples to Apples"? My husband and I love this game! And braids are really in right now! I think you're hair would look super cute with one of those french braid head band things, you know what I mean?! :)

    P.S. I left something for you on my blog:

  6. This is a super cute way to look forward to things to come... It's def got me thinking about things I want/plan/hope to do. Please keep us updated with the rest of your check list!
