|Dinner at the ultimate patio… Joe T. Garcia’s|
|The at-home version – a leisurely dinner on our back
patio one night while Mr. Right was working late –
just me, my ice tea, and The Bachelorette on my laptop. Bliss.
Have a picnic on Trinity Trail
|Trinity Trail is like a little oasis in the middle of the city. If you want
to get some fresh air, have a CHEAP date night, and enjoy a
little romance, I highly recommend it.
|We even brought Harley the Wonder Schnoodle along.|
Learn to bake a pie
|I learned to make peach cobbler (from fresh peaches no less!). My
definition of “pie” is something that you’d bring to Easter, Thanksgiving
or Christmas dinner. So cobbler definitely falls into the pie category.
Take a moonlit walk with Mr. Right on the beach
|Marco Island, Florida|
Wear shorts and heels
|I actually did this quite often. Each time I felt kind of silly
but also kind of awesome.
Ride my bike
|I may be one of the few people who has a bike with cup holders.
Don’t be jealous.
|Mr. Right and Harley came along for the bike ride
(they go every single morning).
Plan a secret date for Mr. Right
|I surprised him with tickets to Concert in the Gardens in Fort Worth. It was
one of the last cool weekends in June before the Heat Wave of 2012 hit.
Hold my new nephew
|We had a big debate before this game – is it trashy to wear workout clothes
(running shorts and a t-shirt) to a Rangers game? Do you get a free pass
if it’s 104 degrees? We chose to go with the all-wick-away fabrics.
And we chose right.
|Rangers lost. But I got a lemon chill. So it was a good night.|
Kiss Mr. Right while watching fireworks
Bucket list fail. I have no pics because I was too busy a-smoochin’. And excited because we hosted 35 friends for a fireworks watching party. But trust me – we crossed this one off the list, and have a few witnesses who will vouch for us.
Learn to sew something new
|Want one of your own?|
Finish my husband’s quilt
|This is Mr. Right modeling the finished product.|
Host a dinner party
Dip my toes in the ocean
Marry off my dear friend Katie

|Confession: I’m showing this one because it shows off my calf muscles, which I’ve never had before. Finally, those 800 million bazillion box jumps from crossfit have finally paid off. Oh, and it was a LOVELY wedding.|
Do something spontaneous
|We did a lot of spontaneous movie/sushi dates. Especially after we
found out our local movie theater offers $5 Tuesdays. Score.
Get a mentor
Done – but this doesn’t really lend itself to picture-taking.
Cook with vegetables from our garden
|Man, those are some GIANT tomatoes, eh?|
Get a pedicure
Eat a sno-cone
Make one of the recipes from my Pinterest board
|This is not exactly “cooking” but I “arranged” based off my Pinterest board.
Judge says – good enough.
Eat a candlelit dinner at home
If you don’t take a picture, does it still count? We’ve had a few candlelight dinners including one where Mr. Right surprised me with one (along with a love note). That one was my favorite, and I was way too googly-eyed to remember to take a picture.
Finish writing Chapter 1 of my book
Done – but again, not really photo-worthy
And here’s what’s left:
Take a photography class
Pre-plan all my meals for one week (confession: I have zero desire to do this, so it’s probably not going to happen)
Get a new dog (This will one is probably on hold for a little while)
Have a fish fry (with chicken strips for me, since I don’t eat fish)
Two weeks to go – we’ll see how many more I can cross off between now and then.
