Summer 2018: Plans & Bucket List


Swimsuit | Sunnies | Hat | Book | Sandals

Can you guys believe that it is already summer? This year has flown by, and I’m not sure how I feel about it. As you guys know from my Father’s Day post, which you can read HERE, it’s been a rough year.  I wasn’t sure that this summer was going to be so fun because I didn’t know what was going to happen. Things are looking up, which means we can all sit back and relax for a little! Tim and I have about 6 trips planned from now until November, so we are going to be traveling a TON. I was planning on keeping a lot of our trips a surprise, which I still am 😉 but I thought I would share our first two here!


In July we are out on a cruise to Mexico with Tim’s entire family for a Schlueter Family Vacay! Its been at least 5 years since I have been on a cruise so I’m super excited.  Not only that, but to spend time with Tim’s family and also go to Mexico! This was a destination for my family all growing up and we haven’t been in awhile, so I’m happy to go back to some old stomping grounds.  You guys know I love to shop, so of course I’m grabbing some new outfits (specifically new bathing suits and new dresses) to wear! 

Coming up quickly after we get home from our cruise, we are heading out to Palm Springs for my 21st birthday! It’s crazy to think that I’m going to be 21.  I have mixed feeling about it! My first thought is, wow, the time has finally come.  My second thought is, are you sure I’m not older? Ha! I’m not a partier, like AT ALL. So I decided to just go with Tim and have it be a mellow trip of relaxing by the pool, eating out, and enjoying the sun.  When we get back I’ll probably do a family dinner, but that’s all I’m interested in! 

As I get older, I try to remind myself how important it is to do bucket list things.  Not for the pictures, but to have the memories. I hope to have a big family one day and traditions are something I want to make a habit of! For example, making a list for every new season of things we can do together.  Even though the entire Summer is booked for us, I’m hoping to get around to doing these things with Tim, family, and friends.
