Summer Manifesto 2014.

Happy last day of school! Last night we kicked off the summer season in KC with Clips of Faith down near the Plaza. (Last year, here!) This year, I have a slightly shorter summer - five weeks instead of six - but I still wanted to craft a manifesto to have as much fun as possible between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Because really, that's summer. It was so fun last year to work on the list, and I am excited to start tackling this one as well.
  • Eat cheese slippers at Fervere.
  • Walk to Baskin Robbins. 
  • Eat at Foo's. Kip's never been, and it's so close to his house!
  • Eat lunch downtown.
  • Trip to Indianapolis to see Gabby graduate!
  • Take treats to Kip while he is working.
  • Read for fun.
  • Celebrate my uncle's birthday with Mexican food at the Buffalo Roam.
  • Have lunch with my sister on her lunch break.
  • Take one online grad school class about the best new books in young adult literature. 
  • Strawberries/blackberries/blueberries/tomatoes/peaches
  • Beat Kip at Putt Putt. Or at least PLAY mini golf with Kip.
  • Make a cocktail at home. Thinking that this one might be calling my name this weekend. Back-up plan: Paloma's
PS. I had about twelve more things on the list and cut it back after I read this post. Some of the stuff I cut was obvious - eat local veggies and grill out. Some of it might still happen, and that's a-ok too. 2013 had 20 items, so I cut back in general. And the other class I planned to take this summer was abruptly canceled, and I took that as a sign to just do less.


  1. I will audit that class through you.
    Sounds like a fun summer!

  2. I am going to add: take Rachel to try KC BBQ.

  3. Great addition, Rachel. How many places would you like to try - 5 or 6?

    1. I mean, that's probably on your list that wasn't your manifesto.

  5. I just realized I haven't blogged in a long time--but it's been a week longer for you. Whew. Also, good thing all your tweets are about beer.


It was so nice of you to stop by and say hi!
