I am a planner. I love thinking of fun things to do, new ways to do them, and how we can make the most of little holidays. Making tree shaped cookies on Arbor Day? That would not be unheard of.
Since the Fourth of July is coming up in just a few days, I am posting a few of my dream ideas for family outings, or even a date with the girls or the special guy in your life. I’m not quite sure what we’ll be doing yet, but it probably won’t be as elaborate as these little events. If I have learned anything as an acting major, it’s that sometimes, you have to fly by the seat of your pants. Especially when family is involved.
Look forward to a new idea each day leading up to the Fourth!
1) Summer by the Bay
Pick any of the gorgeous lakes that seem to be miles apart up north, pack up the car, and get away for a day of rest and relaxation. Bring some cosy blankets, a sun hat, and some lawn chairs for an afternoon spent reading. Or, if you’re like me and my brother, pack along a Frisbee or football and challenge each other to a game in the sand. Whether chilling or running around, you can’t beat a day at the beach!
This one is as easy as putting vanilla yogurt (or any of your fave flavors!) in a waffle cone, topping with some delicious berries, and putting it in the fridge overnight.
Oh, I am so in love with this Pink bikini top.
Perfect with some sweet lacy bottoms from American Eagle.
When not frolicking in the water, add a little cardigan to add some coverage…and possibly some warmth! It can get a little cold in these Northern lakes.

Country heaven, right there.
Hope you liked part one…stay tuned for the rest!
