Summer Bucket List: Update 6/2012

So here we are, second to last week of June. Life is busy for me at work. As in, I get to work at 6:30 am each morning that I can, busy. I'm usually exhausted when I get home, but instead of just sitting around I've been trying to keep busy. Fitting in a workout, walking the dog etc. In the meantime I've knocked off some items from my list and as pledged I figured I'd write about them.

#SIX - Get a new smart phone.
Done. I decided to get the Samsung Stratosphere. I wasn't worried about getting an iPhone. Yes they are pretty but they don't have 4G yet, and frankly I didn't want to pay for a phone. I also received my phone completely free with a $40 credit. Done! So far I love it, sort of. I'm not used to being SO connected to everything in my life. It's a bit strange and something I guess I'll have to get used to. For the past three days at work I shut it off. The constant alerts to stuff happening all over the web that I'm being alerted too is really distracting. Especially when your stressed out.

#THIRTEEN - See Prometheus
I've already talked about this and while at first I wasn't that into it. The more Mike talks about it, or discusses findings about the movie online, I start to like it more and more, and I sort of want to see it again. In other movie news, he had me watch Alien the other night and I wasn't as into it. I think I should have seen it first and THEN saw Prometheus. Anyhoodle, this weekend is Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter... SOOOO excited.

#TWENTY - Make Key Lime Cheesecake
I rocked this for father's day. I will share the recipe with you next week. It was simple and delicious. Definitely a crowd pleaser there were only 2 pieces left when it was all said and done.

#TWENTY SEVEN - Walk three nights a week with June
I am pleased to say that so far we have stuck to this, even with the heat. I went into work early this week a few days so I wasn't feeling getting up early BUT so far we haven't skipped a day. Even if I have to wait for the sun to go down a bit, I'm game for helping her and myself get our fitness on. Last night Mike and I walked her together, after the sun went down. It was great - but the pancakes in my stomach said otherwise. Whew!

#THIRTY EIGHT - Join Instagram.
Done, follow me if you'd like!I sense a new addiction coming on. Can't wait to utilize it during my vacation!

#FOURTY FOUR - Lose 10 lbs.
I'm down two, not a bad start!

#FOURTY FIVE - Blog about each item crossed off the list
Here's the start.

I'm off to a good start. I hope to knock out a lot of these on my vacation. The vacation can't come soon enough!!!

You ARE off to a great start. I feel like such a slacker. I need to get busy on my Project 52 list.

Congrats on knocking a few items off your list already! I did my own bucket list today - with only 10 items on it, so I don't get too overwhelmed, haha! I linked back to yours in my post. You can check it out here, if you want:

Awesome job keeping up with the walking - that seems to be the first thing that goes when I am busy.
Or tired.
Or stressed.
Or cold.
