The Tiny Heart: Summer To Do List

6.25.2013

Summer To Do List



Summer is officially here and there's so many things I want to do! Here's my Summer To Do List:



1. Lots of beach time! This one is easy to check off since all I have to do is walk down the street to get to the beach.

2. Go to the boardwalk in Point Pleasant. Greasy foods, arcade games, mini golf, an aquarium...what more could I want? 


3. Go to New Hope, PA for the day. They have cute little boutique stores and beautiful river views. It makes the perfect day trip. (PS this photo is from last year's trip...I'm not that tan yet!).



4. Go out for brunch. There's a cute little place near us that has outdoor seating and the food is delicious.


5. Use my ice cream maker! It makes the creamiest, richest ice cream I've ever tasted. It also makes yummy sorbet (like the mango one I made last year).


6. Visit the city. I lived in New York for 4 years so it's fun to go back (even though I kinda feel like a tourist now). Nothing beats the shopping, the restaurants, and the energy that can only be found in the city.


I'll be having all these summer adventures in my new Kia Sportage.  It's absolutely perfect for road trips. I love that I don't have to worry about stopping for gas since the gas mileage is amazing. (368 miles on a tank!). It's super comfy too for both my petite self and my 6'4" hubby (plenty of leg room!). All I need is some snacks and I'm ready to hit the road!

  17. I really love your vehicle! It seems like it would be the perfect SUV.
    Okay, I have to be a weirdo and ask, is that the same board walk from MTV's Jersey Shore? (Did I just admit that I liked that show?) :) #embarrassed

  18. They're making KIA's so cute now. You don't have to pay a fortune for one either. Nice Summer list Sharon! You're so lucky to live close to the beach! FUN!

  21. Just bought a new 2013 Forte and am in LOVE. The gas is amazing and there's plenty of room for road trips (we're in Houston and will be traveling to Dallas and Austin before the summer is over). I am so impressed with Kia's progression in the industry! Maybe one day I will upgrade to the SUV :)
