#69 Get manicures and pedicures with friends.

Hold on – give me a moment to giggle like a kid at #69. This is what the internet has done, polluted my young, impressionable mind with inappropriate thoughts about numbers! Ok I’m done giggling.

Do you guys remember Micky? If not you should really think about remembering her, because I can assure you she will be mentioned many more times as summer progresses, and I shouldn’t have to describe her every time, because describing someone as unique and cool as Micky takes a lot of effort! Anyway like I said before, Micky is a pretty fly girl and you should check out her blog – http://happycocobutter.wordpress.com/

Now on with the bucket listing! Micky and I made plans for her to come over and walk down to this little nail place in my neighborhood. After a quick 20 minute walk we made it to the “village center”. But alas the nail place was busy and we had to make an appointment for a later time. So then we just chilled at the bakery next door where we  got us some marble cupcakes. They were pretty good, but there was way to much frosting and they sort of fell apart. Then we went to this little grocery store place… some interesting stuff happened there that I’m not going to discuss online… After that it was time for our manicure. We then had to make the very difficult decision of – what color nail polish? Answer: teal for Micky and blue glitter for me. The lady doing our nails was sort of rude and kept speaking in some undetermined Asian language. Then things got awkward when this older man came in and all the nail ladies were like “Hi Bob!” “How are you Bob?” “Nice to see you again Bob!” When he sat down and started getting a manicure and a pedicure, Micky and I freaked! I’m sorry, call us crazy, but men should not get manicures or pedicures . It’s just plain wrong! Then this lady came up to us and was like “Don’t I look nice?” It was just strange and awkward, but at least our nails look good! Anyway that’s how our manicure adventure went…I suppose I would call it a “unique” experience.

May the summer be ever in your favor,


#47 Paint fingernails each a different colour

I feel like I shouldn’t even bother writing this post. I mean this is one of the simpler, less exciting list items and there is only so much I can say about my experience painting my fingernails different colours. I suppose it was actually kind of heinous, finding ten different colours and then painting my nails, so as not to make them look like a two-year old did them. But besides that there’s not much to say. It was something to fill idle time and I’d say it did its job well – eating out a good half hour of my day. So now my nails are a disco ball of color, ranging from pale baby blue, to gold, to purple sparkles. Entertaining to look at while typing, that’s for sure. Welp there you have it – #47 completed, ready to be crossed off and done with for good.

But wait – there’s more! As you know #24 on my list is to pick an offical summer song. An anthem for the dog days, something that makes me want to get up and dance and just let the world keep turning. I need to pick a song that is perfect for this sunny, bright season. But with all the music out there, its hard not to feel like this is a moot journey and I will never be able to find a song that fits the essence of summer in such perfect harmony. So that’s where you come in. Comment below or contact me somehow with YOUR summer theme song. Hopefully your ideas will give me the encouragement I need to find the absolute best summer song. So go out and find them for me! I’ll just be waiting here for that out-of-this-world sound I know is coming my way.

May the summer be ever in you favor,
