Summer is nearing the end and it’s always about this same time every year that I start to think about all the things that were on my summer to-do list, but haven’t made happen quite yet. Good news is that there is still a little bit of time left to get in a few of my top activities before the leaves start falling.

Here are 5 things I’d still like to TRY to squeeze in this summer!


1. Make an event of going out for ice cream

While I’ve taken our boys to get ice cream several times the past couple of months here in Baton Rouge, I’d like to use it as an excuse to take a little drive over to New Orleans for the day. I’d love to head over to The Creole Creamery in Uptown on a Saturday to test out the flavors and enjoy an extra scoop of that local NOLA charm.

2. Throw a low pressure, informal BBQ

Life is pretty hectic right now with Pete rehearsing every night for his upcoming show, but I’d still love to find a few hours to have some friends and family over to grill out. Not much cooking happens at our house during the summer and quite frankly, I’m missing a home cooked meal. Ha!

3. Take an evening riverboat ride

Even though I was born and raised in New Orleans, I still have yet to take a Mississippi River Dinner Jazz Cruise on the Creole Queen and I’d like to remedy that as soon as possible. Not sure I could handle another 5 day cruise any time soon, but a 3 hour trip down the Mississippi River with food, dancing and the live sounds of jazz sound pretty sweet to me.

4. Tackle a good fiction book

I go through phases with reading. How about you? I’ll read books back to back for a while and then stop for six months. I read this historical fiction novel this summer and I’m finishing up this Nicolas Sparks¬†lighter read right now. I’d like to sneak in this one though before the next month is over. Books set back in earlier times are some of my favorites.

Here are a few that have great reviews that fit the bill:

5. Do dinner on the rooftop overlooking the Mississippi River

Unfortunately, Pete does not eat much international cuisine, so this one may have to be a girl’s night out situation. My dad got me into eating sushi over the summer and it’s now become a regular thing for me. I’d love to hang out with friends on the rooftop of Tsunami here in downtown Baton Rouge and spend a couple of relaxing hours overlooking the Mississippi River. My local ladies, where you at?! Let’s make it happen!
