My Summer Bucket List!!!

So if you didn’t already know I am a big YouTube fan. Matter of fact go subscribe to my channel (mzznette100). You just might enjoy my videos.

Ok back to what I was saying…I have pretty much substituted watching TV for watching YouTube videos (I know I’m lame). What do I watch you ask? Pretty much anything lol. Well let me be more specific. I focus more so on hair tutorials and vlogs from some of my favorite youtubbers. Yesterday I was watching a recently uploaded video from one of my favorite people and she listed her “Summer Bucket List”. I loved her list and the idea of creating one so I decided to do one for myself. And writing it on this blog will help me stay accountable for actually doing all these items. Here goes…

1. Learn to ride a bike!

Some of you all may have burst out loud in laughter after reading this so gone head and get your laughs in now…*waiting*….you finished? *still waiting* Ok 🙂 Yes it’s true I’m a grown woman and sadly I cannot ride a bike…smh! I’ve always wanted to learn but never made it a goal nor asked someone to teach me. So this summer I’m going to get this done. I don’t know how or who will teach me but where there’s a will there’s a way!

2. Improve my swimming!

Ok so last summer I officially learned how to swim *it’s ok to laugh, chuckle, smirk here as well*. I had basic swimming skills however I wasn’t confident in the skills I had at the time. So we (my Sister and best friend) paid for adult swimming lessons and I must say it was well worth it. However, there are more things I’d like to learn and would like to perfect so I decided this summer I’m going to pay to take intermediate swimming lessons. Believe you me I will be a pro by the end of summer! 🙂

3. Visit wineries!

I live in an area saturated with wineries and for as many years as I’ve lived here (about 6.5 yrs) I’ve only been to 1. And surprisingly I really enjoyed it. I’ve never really been into wine but the more I try different flavors and brands the more I come to appreciate it. Hopefully this summer will help me open up my palette a little more. 

4. Go hiking!

I wouldn’t say I’m fond of the outdoors but I can appreciate amazing scenery and a great workout. What better way to pair both of these up by taking a hike up some gorgeous mountain?! I’ve actually never gone hiking but it has always been a form of exercise I wouldn’t mind doing. My goal for the summer is to go on at least 2 hiking trips (baby steps).

5. Take advantage of free events!!!

Just like the saturation of wineries this area (the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia area) offers so many free events. Especially in the District. My problem is I live outside of DC and really dislike commuting into the city. The District and I have a love/hate relationship. Hopefully I won’t let my hate deter me from enjoying all sorts of free events this summer. Y’all pray for me!

I decided to only do 5. Why? Because I know me and doing any more will set me up to fail. This list I feel is doable so I’m going to do everything in my power to make it happen. I challenge every one of you to create a ‘doable’ bucket list for this summer. What have you always wanted to do but never got around to it? If you feel like sharing post your list in the comments section below! 🙂

Loc, Love, Life!

  1. I love this list! I’m currently doing the 30 While 30 list. I’ve been keeping up with it on my blog. I have exactly two more months to complete it.

    I did kind of laugh at the bike riding, but I’m right along with you in strengthening swimming skills. I don’t feel as confident in the water. How do your locs handle swimming? My only hesitation now is how will I conceal all of these locs.

    • Hey Ibyl! I have no idea why I never saw your comment but my appologies for responding so late!! Were you able to complete your list? I can shamely say that I didnt, lol. Also my locs do much better now when I swim. I do get some slippage but not as much as I use to get when they were in the baby phase. 😊 Thanks again for stopping by!
