Before It's Over


Even though summer weather sticks around until mid-October in San Diego, I still get a little wistful around this time of year, thinking of all of the "summertime" activities I need to pack in before it's too late. We managed to clock in a few hours at the beach both days last weekend and this weekend; to me there's nothing better than a shower after spending the day at the beach.

Here's how I'm doing on my summer to-do list:

Bring our dog to our favorite restaurant and eat on the patio (they allow dogs!)
Have our coffee outside (on a weekday morning)
Go for a swim in the ocean
Picnic at the beach
Incorporate a new workout into my usual routine (I've been spinning and taking pilates in addition to running and going to barre!)
Let my hair air-dry more often
Clean out my bathing suit collection
Go to an outdoor movie theatre 
Walk to get gelato (did this last week - the place near us has honey lavendar gelato that is unreal)

And here's my summer to-do list from last year.

My summer to-do list looks something like this:
1. Stay indoors, avoiding the sun and heat as much as possible.
2. Complain about summer.

I've been letting my hair air dry too and it's been fantastic. Such a nice feeling, not needing to blast it with heat right after the shower. Also, that gelato place sounds amazing!!

I love that swimsuit! And anywhere that I can eat with my dog on the patio is a favorite in my book!
