Mid-Summer Bucket List Check In

Right now, I am traveling back to Charleston from the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction in New York.  This was my 27th straight induction and no, I haven't missed one in my life.  Taking the place of a weekend recap (that I'll be sharing tomorrow), I thought I'd check in with my Summer 2015 Bucket List to see how I'm doing so far:

- Try 5 new Charleston restaurants: Mellow Mushroom, Smashburger (a little bit of a cheat haha), California Dreaming, and Santi's so far
- Parasail: We have a gift certificate, we just need to do it!
- Start an herb garden: Trying to figure out what herbs my weirdo cats can gnaw on and not get sick - haha!
- Cook dinners and s'mores on the charcoal grill: Check! We did this when my girl was in town a couple weeks ago.
- Jet-ski: Another thing we have a gift card for - just need to book it :)
- Run 10 miles each week: LOL yeah, no. BUT I did sign up for the Princess Half weekend, so I will be getting my booty in gear soon.
- Visit a new museum in Charleston: Any suggestions?
- Play golf at least twice a week: We're at about once a week right now, but I did play in two tournaments, which I haven't done in a couple years.
- Run at least 1 race: Suggestions needed here, too.
- Play tennis: Check! Here's something we've done super well on; we're playing at least once a week.
- Pick fresh fruit: Check!
- Play lots of cards: Half-check. Uno was a standard while our guest was here, and I think cribbage will be in the rotation soon!
- Bike ride: Yeah, no. Still haven't even taken the bikes off the porch yet...
- Visit every brewery in Charleston: Slacking big time here. 
- Explore Edisto Island: We want to go to Erika's spot Botany Bay sometime this summer. 
- Learn about living on a boat: We're gonna try an Air bnb on a boat for a weekend later in the summer. 

Soooo, I guess I have a lot of work to do.  But at least we still have a couple months left!

Oh you'll love the jet ski adventure. If I had a lake house I'd own one...plus a boat...all in my dreams though!

How fun that you have giftcards for all sorts of activities :) Sounds like a blast!! We definitely need to put our bikes to use more, too!

I'm game for a brewery tour any day, lady! There's one less than 2 minutes from my house ;) Also, love that you have such fun gift certificates to use. Have you been to the Gibbes Art Museum? Not new but a fave!

Some progress is better than no progress! There's still plenty of time to wrap these up and the ones you've done so far sound like a great time.

Parasailing will be fun! There is a new smashburger near me but I haven't gone yet.

I have never been to a California Dreaming. I hear a lot of good things about them.
