23 Jun 50 Things To Do in Summer

How sad is this: in the almost 3 years we’ve been married, I’ve NEVER spent a summer in Utah or with my husband!!! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved interning in New York the last two summers, it helped fulfill my dreams of designing in new york…however, I am especially grateful and excited to spend my first summer in Utah and with Mr. Bullock!! So since yesterday was the first official day of summer, I decided to make a list (like I did during fall) to make sure I can make the most of summertime 2013. Enjoy!




(Most of these ideas came from my pins on PINTEREST, follow me so I can follow you, too!)

  2. Go camping on a chilly night.
  3. Go to a baseball game.
  4. Grill some ‘bobs on the ‘barbie’ (healthy style).
