Everything gets a little slower and a little disorganized in the Summer. This can be especially true of Summer meals...late nights, long pool days and heat that makes you stay out of the kitchen. But today I have meal planning expert Ricki Youngkin from Once a Month Meals. Ricki has all kinds of simple meal ideas for summer to help you save time, money and clean up. And we have a delicious Peach Bourbon Arnold Palmer...perfect for poolside sipping.
Want to make the most of your Summer with your family? I'm kicking off Season 3 of Cocktails and Containers with my friend and family fun expert Donna. We chat not once, but twice about Planning Awesome Summer Activities and Planning Great Family Getaways. And we've got double the cocktails...both featuring Prosecco! An Orange Creamsicle Mimosa and a Sparkling Pineapple Sangria.
Looking for a way to inspire your kids with science and spend quality time this summer? And do it in a super, simple way?
Join me for Simple Summer Science! Here's how it works...there are 10 weeks of science catergories. Each week, your kids pick a topic in that category. Look up a YouTube video, Google facts, or read a book about that topic. But keep it SUPER SIMPLE...we are just looking to pique their interest. You can always do a deeper dive later.
If you'd like my Simple Summer Science worksheet, you can pick it up HERE. You can also follow me on Instagram to see what we and others in the community are learning. And I have a Pinterest board with ideas for each week.
Looking for a way to spend more intentional family time? What about self-care? I created the Life Balance Bucket List because I felt out of whack when it came to family time and self-care. Each month, every member of the family chooses an activity and we put it on the list. My kids keep me accountable (trust me!) and we have at least 4 quality family outings each month.
