Summer Bucketlist

It's officially June and I will be out of school next week for summer break. It's time that I start thinking about all of the things I would like to do this summer! After two months of non stop events every weekend I want this summer to be very relaxed and keep my obligations to a minimum. There are a few very small things though that are totally doable without feeling overloaded. 

1. Find a new church
This one is SO important to me!! Since I will be moving to a new area I really want to take the summer to try out church's in the area. I can't wait to find a new church to call home. 

2. Pelicans Game
I used to love going to Greensboro Grasshopper games but now that I will be living at the beach I'd love to make it to a Pelicans baseball game! I'm actually not a huge baseball fan but the atmosphere is so fun! 

3. Shag Lessons 
I want J and I to enroll in shag dance lessons. I know the basics but over the many college bar dancing 
sessions I'm pretty sure my technique has become sloppy. Shag dancing is probably one of my favorite things to do at an event with beach music. (I know this is a Carolina's thing...) 

4. Music on Main
With all those new dance skills we need a place to practice right? There are free concerts offered every weekend on Main St of N Myrtle. I want to take advantage of this for sure! 

5. Visit Southport 
I will be living less than an hour from Southport, NC. After watching Safe Haven I have been dying to visit this quaint little town!! I really want to make a day trip there this summer! Fun fact: Justin met Josh Duhamel during the filming of Safe Haven at a local bar.  

6. Take advantage of fresh fruits and veggies 
I pretty much live off of tomato sandwiches and cantaloupe in the summertime. I want to take advantage of the produce stands and farmers markets around when I make my fruit and vegetable purchases. 

Nothing crazy, but a few very important things to me! What's on your summer bucket list?


  1. We got married in Southport and adore that town. It is a perfect little town to relax and spend a summer afternoon. I took shag lessons as a kid and taught my husband how to dance too. Sadly, he is too embarrassed to dance anywhere outside of our house.

  2. I think it would be so much fun to take shagging lessons! I learned in Junior Assembly in middle school, but I think it would be fun to learn the more advanced steps. Great list!
