Summertime To-Do's

Summer has arrived. That means work is busy, I'm jealous of other people's "summer homes" and I'm in a constant conflict of loving summer and hating the concrete jungle heat of NYC. I've done this list for the last few years (2015 and 2016) and I've been about 80% successful.

1. Go to a Mets game

2. Visit at least 3 new brunch places. I have a list of awesome places in Brooklyn that are worth trying, so I'll have no problem coming up with ideas.

3. Play mini golf

4. Head to Coney Island for a day of fun

5. Get Vegetarian Chicken & Waffles from Sweet Chick. I know they exist thanks to this lovely blogger and I need them in my life ASAP.

6. An Epic Road Trip

7. Spend as much time on our tiny balcony as possible. The good news is that I'm writing this on the balcony.

8. US Open with my dad again. But this year, we are adding my godfather and my husband to the crew.

9. Outdoor concerts and movies. I want to take advantage of the millions of things to do outside in NYC in the Summer.

10. Make a West Coast appearance.

11. Enjoy some amazing summer desserts. Tipsy Scoop, Steve's Key Lime Pie, you know... the hot weather classics.

12. Visit at least one new brewery or winery. I've learned about so many small breweries in NYC that I was not aware of before.

13. Governor's Island. I'm putting this on the list for the 3rd year in a row, but this is optional. It would be a bonus.

So that's it for the big items. I also want to write down that I want my summer to include phone free weekends, sunsets on the rooftop, watermelon, popsicles, sparklers, rainy afternoons and checking books off the list. Also, Game of Thrones comes back mid July, so... winter will be upon us soon.

All in all, I would like this to be the most epic summer yet. Cheers.

Life According to Steph


  1. My plan was to spend as much time as i could in my backyard patio but it's been raining so much lately!

  2. You've got quite the list here, missy! Now, what are your thoughts for that epic road trip? I'm intrigued!

  3. I've never been to Coney Island.

    Where's the road trip?


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
