Rosé all day. It’s the perfect pink drink to sip on a warm summer’s afternoon. And for those times when you are just chilling with your homies out on the patio, I’ve created the perfect playlist. Rosé and rap go together like Puffy and Mace. They are great on their own, but better together. I’m also sharing my favorite rosés to pick up for your summer entertaining. Word.
We live really close to the beach. But we hardly ever go. Life gets busy (plus I’m SUPER high maintenance) so schlepping everything down there seems like way too much work. A few weeks ago, my family and I did a little staycation at a friend’s house in Carlsbad (about an hour from our city). Knowing that we were free of our daily stresses made enjoying the beach easier. To me, a staycation is any kind of getaway (metaphorical or literal) where you act like you are on vacation even if it means staying close to or at home. There were certain things that I planned ahead for that helped to make our weekend away the best time ever. These staycation ideas will hopefully help you plan a much-needed escape from reality for your family.
Compensation was provided by Hebrew National via Mode Media.Does your heart race a little when you get invited to a BBQ? Mine totally does. Barbecue parties are the ultimate in afternoon hang outs. You need three things for a good BBQ: good food, rad friends and (hopefully) warm weather. And while being invited to one is awesome, I love to host them even more! Today I’ve partnered with Hebrew National to share my favorite BBQ party ideas. There’s nothing I love more than a grilled hot dog and a stress-free menu that will let you enjoy your own party.
So the most amazing thing happened to me recently. Well, not just to me but all Sirius XM subscribers. They put out a temporary station on Channel 31 that is a tribute to Yacht Rock. If you don’t know what that is I’m not sure how you’ve been able to get through life thus far. It’s people like Steely Dan! Michael McDonald! Christopher Cross! And a bunch of people you’ve never heard of. When you listen to this playlist you are instantly transported to the 70’s and 80’s on a yacht out in the harbor with a wine spritzer in your hand. It’s easy listening. It’s jazzy. It’s brilliant.
It happened. I bought a one piece bathing suit. I had every intention of being fit for the summer and rocking my usual two pieces. But I like food. And I’m a mom. Hanging out in a two piece at our neighborhood pool was starting to feel wrong. So I went on a quest for cute one piece swimsuits. And found the perfect suits!
How can summer be almost over!? This summer was great and the kids were at the perfect ages to try some new things. We will have these memories to think back on all year and inspire us to keep the adventure going as we move in to fall.
