I thought summers were supposed to be laid back and lazy. So far these first 3 weeks have been anything but! Working from home and having an 8 year old at home make it stressful. He wants to play and have fun; I mean he is 8 you can’t blame him for that! But, I have work to get done. So it is a tough balancing act. We are making lots of trips to the pool, and he has played with friends a few times, so hopefully at the end of the summer he will say it was a fun break.
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? We are going to see Monsters University on Saturday with my husbands work. My 8 year old doesn’t know yet, he is going to be super excited.
Are you guys ready for the 4th of July? I am not!! I have a fun round up coming for you next weekend, but in the mean time here are a few things I would love to add to my menu.
Lemon Herb Potato Salad with Crispy Bacon from Climbing Grier Mountain
These Lemon Bars from Fifteen Spatulas look so perfect for summer!
I have never actually grilled corn before, but it is on my list of things to do this summer. This Grilled Corn with Jalapeno Butter from Handle the Heat would go over really well at my house!
How cute are these S’mores Cereal Treats from In Katrina’s Kitchen? I love that it makes enough for just 2!
I am all for a good cocktail to round out the week. This Roasted Pineapple and Strawberry Daiquiri from Nutmeg Nanny sounds incredible!
