Making the most of a short summer

So, this list was my facebook status last night and I feel like expanding on it. I didn't have hubs last summer so it was pretty uneventful and really, mostly wasted. But I get him this year and I plan to cram as much summer in as possible. We're nearly fully booked for his leave period and every weekend around it until the second week in August! We plan on being as active as possible, making memories, and spending as much of it together as possible.
Things I am looking forward to on my three weeks of summer with hubs:

1. Dinner for two
Last time he was home I tried my hand at a little bit of cooking and baking. I want to get back into that once I have someone else to eat it. As much as I like a good turkey sandwhich... cooked food will be nice for a change. ;)

2. Road Trip!
We are locking down the details to go visit his family in California who he hasn't seen in a long time and who I haven't even met yet. (That tends to happen when you basically elope.) We had such a good time on our PCS road trip, I can't wait for this one. We make a really good team and I love planning and going on adventures with him. :)

3. Actually enjoying a sunny day
You may remember my big ol' sad face post a while back about the sunshine making me sad when he's away because I can't enjoy it with him. Ok, well I've mostly gotten over that. But, I am super duper excited to actually get outside with Monkey on the sunny days to come! Hiking, biking and running, aye!

4. Workout buddy
We started this kickboxing thing together, but then when he went underway it obviously became a solo activity. I'm really excited to work out with him again. I'm also excited to get him started in Capoeira! I know he's going to love it and I can't wait to have someone to practice with.

5. The most jam packed three weeks of summer ever
Yeah, like I said up top; we are pretty fully booked this summer and it's going to be awesome! I'm going to work really hard to make sure we don't get lazy and stay in bed all day. We have a really bad habit of doing that cause we're such cuddle bugs. But, that is why most everything is prescheduled! So we don't have to decide what to do, we'll just go do it!
Well, that's what I'm super freakin' excited about this summer!!
