The Summer of Jenn

So, I have decided to deem this summer "The Summer of Jenn". "Kind of selfish" you say. Well really it is a title thought up by my linky co-leader, Ryan while talking about all the things I want to do this summer. I have decided, in "The Summer of Jenn" to do all the things I have always talked about wanting to do in a summer but just seem to continually put on the back burner. I want to try and experience/accomplish certain things this summer and want to include people to come join me as I work toward my goal.
I plan to kick the summer off with a planned event and end the summer with a big 30th birthday bash. Below is a list of the things I want to accomplish this summer:

Dinner Party at my house
Vacation by myself--I leave for the DR, Punta Cana on April 21st and will be staying there in an all inclusive resort for 6 days. I'm going by myself and am going to have a blast.
Road trip--woo hoo, I have the oppurtunity to go to NewYork with Shannon and Beth Ann for Beth Ann's Birthday on May the 18th and stay tll May 20th. Yeah! Roadtrip!
Day of Hiking --went Hiking on June 14th with Casey. Sweet time!
Party in my back yard --So Friday night June the 22nd I threw a huge party in my back yard. I invited everyone I had a number for and left the rest up to word of mouth. It was awesome!

Rebecca, that was the hiking and camping I was referring to. You bet your bottom, I'm comin' down there this summer.
Sara, you totally have to help me do this stuff this summer. You will make it that much more fun.
Dave, sorry! Maybe next summer. I've never seen the Grand Canyon. Maybe that will be my road trip! Who knows...the possibilities are endless.
