My husband and I love to grill! I usually leave the grilling to him and then I whip up some tasty sides! We also love our outdoor patio space that we just updated, it's such a nice space to enjoy family time and good food. We definitely want STRONG, sturdy plates (such as Dixie Ultra® at Target, so we don't have any stains or spills or our nice new seat cushions and pillows! Today I'm sharing one of our favorite burgers to grill, a Cheddar Dijon Burger with Caramelized Onions Served Open Face! It is perfect with a side of corn and a cool summer salad.

Summer Bucket List {2017}


Hey everyone! I am joining Leslie at Once Upon a Time and Happily Ever After and 20 or so other bloggers to share out Summer Bucket Lists today! Thank you so much for getting this together, Leslie!

I always do a Summer Bucket List for the kids, one for me and one for me and Brian. It is just more fun that way and it encourages us to do a lot of family activities and it also encourages Brian and I to have lots of date nights and other fun activities together! Oh, and it encourages me to get a couple things done during the summer!

The last time I did a Summer Bucket List was in 2015! I used to love doing these, but as the kids have gotten older it has been a little harder to find open pockets of time. So, Leslie keeps asking me to do one and I finally gave in to her requests (happily!) and thought the summer would be a perfect time to try out a bucket list again!

*underlined text means that activity is completed*

Summer Bucket List for Me

1. Go running at Fenton Park

2. Sign up for Half Marathon Training with Fleet Feet

3. Paint Vanity in Master Bathroom

4. Start thinking of how I want to redo the area where my rose bushes used to be in the garden.

5. Plan my 40th Birthday Party

Summer Bucket List for the Kids
1. Nathan: Karate and Band Camp. Autumn: Summer Gymnastics and Full Day Dance Camp (3 Days)

2. Family Vacation to Disney (can't wait to check out the new World of Avatar and I'll finally meet Lauren Kim from Mom Home Guide!)

3. Library Reading Program, we are almost done! Even mom signed up to read this year!

4. Take the kids to see Cahokia Mounds and have a picnic lunch

5. Cardinals baseball game, Nathan won tickets through the Library Reading Program

Summer Bucket List for Me and Brian

1. All Inclusive Resort in Mexico (can't wait!)

2. Moonlight Paddle boats Picnic at The Boat House

3. Do a sunset dinner at Montelle winery

4. Riverboat Cruise on the Mississippi with Brian. We haven't done this in several years, I thought it would be fun.

 I'd love to do brunch sometime, like at Squires. They even have a Mimosa and Bloody Mary Bar

6. Go to IKEA for lunch and also purchase and put together a new coffee table for the family room.

We love our cat very much and she's a huge part of our family. I always feel that during the summer, it is a little more challenging to give her as much love as the days are longer and we are outside more (she's an indoor cat). Today I'm sharing 5 Ways to Show your Cat Love this Summer (and to Avoid Kitty Boredom!) and I'm also sharing how to save $10 off $40 on Purina

If you know me... you know that the Starbucks® Bottled Frappuccino is my FAVORITE drink right now! I usually get the Vanilla flavor, but I was excited to try the new Starbucks® Bottled Dulce de Leche Frappuccino® Coffee Drink Single Serve item only (not available in 4-pack) at Walmart recently.

The reason I love Starbucks® Bottled Frappuccino, is because it is a mini break in the day for me. Today I'm going to share How to Sneak in Perfect Summer Moments for Yourself. The summer can be SO busy with the family, planning and getting ready for summer vacations, etc. and it's important to find moments to enjoy a little break for yourself!
