My Summer Bucket List!

Summer Bucket List

I'm linking up with

Miss Kindergarten


A Cupcake for the Teacher

for a summer bucket list Linky party!  I've decided I'm a big fan of this linky party because thinking about summer is the only thing getting me through these next 6 days!!! I love my kiddos but wow... the stress level at this point is overwhelming!

Here are a few things I'd love to do this summer:
First, I am going to the beach in June.  CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!

While I am at the beach, I plan on reading this:
and doing some major relaxing!

Some things I hope to do for school are:

Grab these aprons from Home Depot to make a journal, book, etc... holder.  I might jazz it up a little and add some fabric.  We shall see.
77 cents aprons from Home Depot tied to a chair...independent book bags next year. Great idea for next year! I would totally jazz them up though!;)

Make a few of these, just because!
lego word game

Create a few more items for my TpT store!!!

I'd also like to go to the Farmer's Market more than I did last year,
TIP FOR KEEPING BERRIES FROM GOING MOLDY!! When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider probably work best) and ten parts water.  Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted I find you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit.

and try a few new recipes.
You'll swear it's like eating raw oatmeal cookie dough...but it's super healthy and packed with protein!

Pesto & Cheese Stuffed Shells

avocado and grilled corn salad with cilantro vinaigrette.

I also REALLY need to organize my scrapebook stuff...
ribbon holder- brilliant!

I apparently have a lot to do this summer... lol.  I think I will start with just relaxing!!!  Happy Hump! We are almost there!!!
