May 2019 Bucket List

May 2019 Bucket List

April felt like a whirlwind and I still can’t believe how quickly it’s flown by! I am proud to say I’ve gotten most of the things on my April bucket list crossed off. I think I will start my bucket list posts with an update from the prior month.

In April, my bucket list items were:


    Check and check! I originally wanted to go to the Postal Museum and National Archives, but I actually ended up going to the US Botanic Garden and the Library of Congress (which I will be going back to so I can get my Library of Congress card!)


    Unfortunately, I didn’t get to this at all. This bucket list item was a miserable fail! I don’t think I picked up my crochet needles once! I will definitely get on that soon!


    I’ll give myself half credit for this. I HATE crowds and it definitely gets super crowded at the Cherry Blossom festival. I did go around it to see the beautiful blooms though.


    I definitely did a LOT of reading this month. My original April reading goal was to read five books but I ended up reading 10 books (you should check out my Goodreads to see what I read!). My reading goal for the year is 50 books but I’ve already read 39!!

Okay, now that I have updated you guys on my last month’s bucket list items, here are my items for May:

  • Travel to San Luis Obispo, CA

    My boyfriend and I have a trip planned to California again - this time to celebrate his grandparents’ 60th anniversary. Can you believe it? 60 years! I’m so excited to explore a part of California I’ve never been to!

  • Attend a wedding

    It’s wedding season again! My friends Kevin and Alyssa are getting married! Longtime readers may remember how I almost ruined the proposal so I’m happy that they’re going to be walking down the aisle soon!

  • See a play at the Shakespeare Theater

    We have tickets to see The Oresteia at the Shakespeare Theater as a part of our season tickets. This is the last play of the season and the last play with longtime artistic director Michael Kahn before his retirement! We’ve been through three seasons with Michael Kahn so while I’m sad to see him go, I’m glad to be there for his final play!

  • Celebrate a long-distance mother’s day

    My parents have retired to South Carolina and I’m here in DC. I won’t be seeing my mom until June so Mother’s Day this year will be long-distance. I’m already compiling a list of things I want to send her!

  • Hang out with Brian’s parents

    Conversely, Brian’s parents will be visiting DC in May. As you may recall, they’re from California and it’s always fun to see them and hang out with them! Brian is hoping I’ll teach his parents to make kimchi while they’re out here!

What are some things on your bucket list this month?
