Agenda: The 12 Weeks of Summer

Happy friday everyone! So you may have noticed, no Friday's Fancies today. Instead, since this week is the official start of summer I thought I'd share with you my to-do list over the next 12 weeks. Some of the items are on my list each year eg. July 4th fireworks, while others are new additions. What do you have planned for the summer season? I would love to know if you have any summer traditions.

one//two//three//four//five//six


{week 1}  First and foremost, buy a proper grill! This has been on my summer to-do list for the past three years now. Maybe this is the year that I can finally cross this off my list.

{week 2}  Celebrate my daughter's upcoming 2nd birthday with friends at the Food Truck Park. Must remember to bring a kite, bocce, bubbles and sunscreen. 

{week 3}  Watch July 4th fireworks on our Army base and leave mid-way to avoid the horrendous traffic jam. 

{week 4}  Homemade popsicles, need I say more?

{week 5}  Treat myself to a manipedi, duh!

{week 6} Invite the ladies over for Pimms on the porch. Actually a mint julep will be much more fitting for where I live.


seven//eight//nine//ten//eleven//twelve


{week 7} Take the kids to the splashpark. Bring a picnic of antipasti, fruit, cheese, baguette and cold fried chicken.

{week 8} Overindulge in summer fruits. I'm thinking berries for breakfast followed by a light lunch and then finish the day off with a dinner of watermelon eaten with a spoon of course. 

{week 9} Fill the house with flowers in little mismatched glass jars and string up some candles in mason jars for the deck. 

{week 10} Splurge on a new coat for fall. I have been wanting a long red coat  for a while now, this Michael Kors would be the perfect addition. 

{week 11}  Plan a beach themed staycation. The closest beach to where I live is a good 10 hours away.  This means no fresh seafood, no skinny dipping, no impromptu walks along the sand, no shells, no beach hair... *tears

{week 12} Farewell summer by paring my swimsuit and maxi on a grocery run.
