Summer To Do List 2011

Summer 2011 has been one of the best ever!! It's our first full summer being married and we've had a great time!

Here is our to do list:

We have had lots of lemonade.

On the 4th of July we had an EPIC water balloon fight with all of our neighbors.

Going camping with friends will wait until Fall.

Drive in movie also has not been checked off the list
just yet. We're workin on it.

I made a triple berry pie. My first pie ever. This is the first time. I ran out of dough for the little bit of lattice
there but it was DELICIOUS!

We've been to a lake.

We have explored Chicago plenty.B Boy battle on Michigan avenue.
Architecture tour on the Chicago river.

Taste of Chicago
Grant Park Chicago is such a fun city! ;-) I love exploring. Especially in the summertime when it's not below zero and FREEZING! And next on the list: We're going to WEST VIRGINIA on Thursday! We haven't been home to see our families since Christmas. Granted, we have seen both of our families once each since then, but being home is different. I can't WAIT! We celebrated 1 year of marriage on July 31st.

We had a fabulous weekend together. Saturday I woke up and made pancakes from scratch and a nice big breakfast with my husband. Then we got ready and went downtown for the day. We walked all the way to Navy Pier and caught the architecture tour around the city (seen above). Then we went to a delicious dinner at an Armenian restaurant downtown.

Sunday we woke up and went to church, then I got my surprise! We went to see the Million Dollar Quartet downtown. It was so great! It was a musical about Johnny Cash, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. It was so good! The guy who played Johnny Cash looked freakishly like the real Johnny Cash that at times it freaked me out. It was a great show. Afterwards we had Tapas (the picture right above). It was a wonderful 1 year anniversary and we look so forward to the next 100 years (hehe!).

Back to the list!

We haven't been antiquing yet or to Six Flags (carried over to fall).

Getting junk food late at night?! Please, that happened a little too often.

We've been fishing! My husband caught his first fish ever!!! :-)

Ice cream with sprinkles?!?! Maybe tonight?!?!

It's been a wonderful summer as you can see and it's not over yet! ;-)

Stay tuned for all the deliciousness I've been baking this summer... and also my first giveaway coming soon!!
