  1. Haha! That outdoorsy sign got me! So cute & hilarious! This list is pretty awesome.

    This summer, I want to start painting again. Although I pretty much sucked before I think it will be therapeutic. I would also like to take Bailey to the beach more often but the weather since I got back has been terrible!

  3. THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD LIST. i am going to steal a few. :) already making plans to go mini golfing at the walker- it looks so fun! i am already dreaming about the state fair. have you ever had the nitro ice cream there? it's in one of the buildings.. of course i cant remember which one.. i will figure it out by fair time and let you know because you must try it!

    good luck with applications to go back to school!
