Friday Round Up: Summer To Do List Edition

Inspiration from around the web on making the most of a stay-close-to-home summer.

I usually post a seasonal “to do” list, but I’d scrapped the idea because I figured, with a wee babe that can only stay awake for an hour or so, we’d be lucky to get our grocery shopping done, let alone some big adventure. But I’ve seen quite a few summer fun lists online and I’ve been inspired.

This is my “how to make staying close to home seem super fun list”...each week we’ll:

-Make a treat.

-Do something creative.

-Try a new dinner dish.

-Rent a new (to us) movie.

I was going to add “shower daily” to this list, but then I thought, “hey now, let’s not get TOO ambitious with this here list”.

Obviously, I’ll be using the trusty interwebs to help me find recipes and projects and here are a few that will make the list...

This smoothie shared by Cathy Zielske is going to become a morning staple.

These Oreo pops are first on the list. I think Golden Oreos dipped in milk chocolate are more my speed though. VIa Hip Hip Hooray

“Super Sliders”? Sounds like a home run.

My girl will love to make these butterflies out of coffee filters. Finally! A craft item I actually have.

Here are a few posts that inspired me, made me smile and made me think.

Tara Whitney brings back OPAM.

Need a smile. Read this.

Some interesting thoughts on educating our kids.

And, just because I’ll be keeping close to home doesn’t mean that you have to! Go enjoy National Get Outdoors Day.
