Happy first day of summer!

When I imagine summer, thoughts of long summer nights, barbeques with friends, and the pool flood my mind. Even the 4th of July is coming up so quickly (we don't have huge plans but still one of my favorite holidays!), which is absolutely crazy to me. I'm so excited to kick off this first summer weekend with temperatures in the 90's and at the pool! 

Here's a little list of things I hope to accomplish this summer (that I hope helps keep me on track): 
+go to a drive-in movie
+take a cooking class and learn new recipes (scheduled! So excited to share about this)
+eat at 2 new brunch spots and sit outside
+go to a country concert/listen to live music as much as possible!
+soak up the sunshine at the pool/lake
+cook out with friends

What do you hope to do the most of this summer?

Also, as I'm sure most of you noticed, the Insta is now doing the video thing....how we do we feel about it? I feel silly posting videos sometimes (@katiewkrysh-if you want to follow along!), but here's the first one I took last night.... of course Rocky running to me when I got home from work had to be my very first one!

Those little legs got some serious air... ;)

Enjoy your weekend! xo



  1. I made a summer bucket list too! It has some of the same goals on it! And I still love the video of Rocky! Hemi does too! lol.

  2. Rocky running towards you omggahhd. He is such a little stud!!!! hes like MOOOMMMMMMYY!!!

    I also want to take a cooking class!! I'm really dying to take a class where I get to use the fire torch thing--maybe that might be a winter thing? hahahah!

    this summer i need to get a tan. Im sick and tired of looking like a piece of printer paper!! Thats a goal. Also, boating, beach, golfing to name a few!

    love you katie! :)

  3. that picture looks ahhhhh so heavenly!

  4. Oh.My.Gracious. That video of Rocky running towards you is the sweetest. Bless his heart! What a sweet boy! Doesn't it make you feel so good inside? I love it when my furbabies greet me after work!!!

  5. Rocky is too precious, love that video! I totally plan on getting nice and golden brown this summer, it's happening! Enjoy your fabulous weekend!

  6. I would loooove to go to a drive in movie! too bad they got rid of all of the ones by me = ( Going to have to go on a hunt for the nearest one now. Have a great weekend!

  7. Awe! I wish we had drive in movies here!! It's crazy that it's the first day of Summer today.. Us Floridians pretty much feel like we have summer 10 months out of the year!!

  8. A drive-in movie sounds divine! I'm really looking forward to spending the summer at the beach and reading great books. This year has been so busy for me and I'm really looking forward to unwinding and relaxing.

  9. I want to go to a drive in movie too! sounds like so much fun!!

  10. Those little legs are just going as fast as they can to get to his momma!! So darn cute!!

    We have a drive-in ONE MILE from our house!! And I've never been! That HAS to change this summer. We're hoping for lots of backyard bbq'ing and cornhole!

  11. I am so envious of your cooking class! I LOVE to cook... Pretty sure I am going to avoid work for a bit this afternoon and research one that I can sign up for... Now I just need to convince a friend to partake as well! So fun!! Is it 5pm yet? Pool time needs to start... Now!! Happy Weekend ❤

  12. I think one of my goals is to just find ONE good brunch place around here..is California! There should be lots! Happy Day Uno of Summer! Yay!

  13. OMG!! That video is seriously priceless, so sweet!!

  14. I love Rocky running toward you!! He's so sweet.

  15. that canoe picture is killing me.. its been 110 here in Phoenix for a month already! I need a lake!

  16. Aww Rocky is so adorable! I lover your summer bucket list too. I'm so excited to have found your blog and I can't wait to follow future adventures! (and cooking class adventures!)
    xo, Hima
    P.S. I just started a blog and joined the cool kids club. I'd love for you to swing by and leave me a comment with some feedback! Thank you so much.

  17. I have been trying to convince my hubby to go to the drive-in for YEARS! We have such a good setup at home that he refuses to go out to see movies.

    Lots of grilling out and taking advantage of our patio is already taking place, and I want to get more hiking in this summer.

    I also plan on going to a couple country concerts (Kenny this weekend, woot!) and seeing lots of live music. If you haven't checked out the summer schedule at Columbus Commons yet, you should; that's where we mainly plan on getting our fix! I mean, different genres every week, food trucks, local beer, and it's FREE - what's not to love?
