Memorial Day has come and gone, and June (summer) is officially here! This is mine and Craig’s last summer before we become parents, and while I can’t do some things I’d normally love to partake in, I still love the idea of having some mini summer adventures and fun things to do together before baby girl makes her debut in early September. We’ll see if we’re able to cross everything off the list by the end of August!
1. Make homemade fruit popsicles! I bought this set of cute pink molds at IKEA recently and can’t wait to try them out.
2. Travel to Nashville (twice in June to celebrate a friend getting married and then be celebrated by friends and family at our couples baby shower) and then to Charleston for our good friends’ wedding in July.
3. Have an evening picnic at the Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays!
4. Have a date at the movies. This doesn’t sound incredibly exciting, but so many friends who have babies have told us to do this before she arrives… sounds like that’s not a top priority anymore once kids are in the picture?
5. Make bruschetta from our backyard tomato and basil plants.
6. See the Center for Puppetry Arts’ latest show, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type. This is more of a shameless plug for work and something Craig won’t make it to, but I’m really excited to see this brand new production. Once baby girl is old enough, she’s going to become a regular at the Center!
7. Hit up Zesto for a corn dog and chocolate-dipped cone! (Gotta use that pregnancy craving excuse while I still can!)
8. Spend some lazy summer days at the pool and hanging out with friends. I hope to take some serious advantage of the fact that after mid-July, I’m not allowed to travel outside of Atlanta for the remainder of my pregnancy.
9. Try a handful of new restaurants in different parts of town. Some places that come to mind are Oddbird on the Westside (formerly known as dinner at West Egg), Thirteen Pies in Buckhead, Superica at Krog Market, Ladybird in the Old Fourth Ward, and Mountain Biscuits in Marietta.
10. Finish up the nursery — hopefully that glider will make it here in time! I can’t wait to share a full tour of the nursery and all the special details once it’s complete!
