Summer bucket: Updated

Its so not fair that we wait so long for summer and when it gets here its almost over in the blink of an eye. With only a month left  to try to fit everything in I found myself going back to my bucket list to see if I actually did anything that I set out to do, and to my surprise I was able to check off more than I thought!

Summer bucket

Random weekend getaway: Although not completely random I was able to go down to the 757 to see my wonderful friends, chill by the pool and just catch up. Havent seen them in months and it felt like we were never apart.

Rooftop pool: Oh yeaaa! This was probably the best discovery of the summer! With it being literally 2 blocks from my job its perfect and they have pool happy hour specials! #win

Beach Bum: This past weekend, although I was sick (insert sad face with mask around the mouth), I went to Myrtle Beach, SC with my BFF and her family. Im about one shade darker lol and my god daughter was able to make sand castles and my head cold got better (granted I was highly medicated!) All in all it was a pretty great weekend :)

Baseball game: My love for baseball has def grown over the past few years! With the Nats playing so well last season I knew that I had to make it to at least one game this summer.  An old co worker of mine had tickets and invited me to go so I hopped at the chance. If it were a dodgers game (Matt Kemp) my life would be complete!

Meet new peeps:  I will admit that I havent met as many new people that I would like but I still have time! On a happy hour/bday outting and 4th of July celebration  I met a few pretty cool people and I look forward to going to other different places with new crowds!

Cant wait to finish up the rest of this list and maybe add a few more! Have you guys checked off anything from your summer bucket list?

"Be the good you want to see in the world.."

Im not perfect and I definitely have my downfalls and flaws. I get moody for no reason at all and have slight road rage (im working on that tho lol) but who doesn't?  But even with all my craziness I'm a super softey and will cry if I hear something that's touching or good that someone has done for someone/something else. If animals are involved someone pass me the entire box of tissues because Im no good.

Recently while spending my work day on Pinterest (i seriously need to be more productive at work) I came across an amazing pin about a woman who did 38 random acts of kindness for her 38th birthday. Her story was really inspiring to me and made me want to do the same thing. So leading up until my 26th bday I plan to do 26 random acts of kindness (fingers crossed).

Being able to do this, Im sure will not only make someone else's day brighter but also my own. Knowing that I helped make a difference in someones life whether it be small or not is a great feeling to have.  I also plan to try to document some of the R.A.K if I can and I hope that it will in someway I inspire someone else to pay it forward and that if you want to see change let it start with you. 

Mahatma Gandhi was a very smart man.

Hugs and Love :)

Oh and if you have any suggestions as to some acts of kindness feel free to let me know in the comments, but Im hoping that the opportunities present themselves.
