Summer Bucket List Inspiration and Contest!!

Jugl Summer Bucket List

Is eating a triple scoop on your Summer 2018 list?

At the end of each school year as we head into summer, a fantasy looms before me: that we will enjoy weeks and weeks of life at a slower pace, with fewer obligations and lighter schedules…

I fantasize that we will enjoy the long days and lazy soccer-free weekends.  I sometimes wonder how we are going to fill all that free time…  Screech….and then I look up again and it’s Labor Day and the summer is over.  Wah!

So, two summers ago I created my first summer bucket list and I’ve made it an annual tradition!  Want to join us?  Pete and I have each made a list of things to try to do this summer JUST FOR FUN.  No pressure to choose things that are educational or healthy, the criteria are simple: does it sound FUN? Do I want to do this?  Does thinking about it make me smile?

We invite you to join us in this fun exercise!!!

Any Jugl’rs who send us a list of at least 10 summer bucket list items by July 4th and then reply to us in September telling us how many items on the list that they did will be entered into a contest to win your choice of:


Circle with Disney

This is a device that helps enforce your home’s internet rules and restrictions so you don’t have to constantly be the iPad/Netflix/YouTube police.


Phone Bed Charging Station

This just cracks us up.  Per Amazon:

  • Arianna Huffington’s Phone Bed Charging Station, brought to you by Thrive Global, makes putting your smartphone to bed a regular part of your nightly ritual. By giving your phones and tablets their own bed – outside your bedroom – you can say goodnight to your day and get the sleep you need to wake up fully recharged.
  • Charges up to 10 devices at a time (including tablets)
  • Constructed of solid wood with velvet-lined compartments and satin liners
  • Includes dual-sided blanket in satin and microfiber to clean device screens
