Kicking Off Summer

22 May

Happy Wednesday! Things are going good around here…I’m looking forward to this holiday weekend and couldn’t be more excited for the events that we have planned!

Friday kicks off summer with a music festival on our Main Street along with lots of people and cold beer (except it’s going to be back in the 60’s-70’s) but it will be lots of fun! I am the matron of honor in my friend’s wedding coming fast in July and am helping host her bridal shower and bachelorette party on Saturday evening.Ā I.Can’t.Wait!!Ā And on Sunday we are going camping for the first time this summer! It will be nice to welcome summer with open arms and kick it off with all of my favorite things to do! Friends, good times, and enjoying the outdoors.

In the mean time, hockey is now over. Our team won the championship cup for the second time in 3 years. It was awesome to celebrate the end of the season the right way! It will be nice to have a few month break to enjoy summer and then back into hockey season!

Watching the Championship game - it was over 8 hours away so we had to watch it at a viewing party.

We also got out our bean bag boards…

We got these for our wedding and they come with score posts that double as beer holders which we didn’t get out because it looked like a storm was coming but I did get my wine holder out that my parent’s got us for our anniversary. I love this thing!

Last night we had our first night of sand volleyball as well although unfortunately too many teams signed up and with only 2 outdoor courts, teams have to rotate to the inside courts and last night was our turn but regardless, it was a lot of fun and we played pretty good! I forgot how much I love that sport and am so glad to be back at it!

I have spent very little time in the kitchen and lots of time out on our deck watching David grill. It’s been nice but I have absolutely no new recipes to share with you! Our eats have been lots of hamburgers, turkey burgers, brats, and chicken – too hot to turn the oven on and too nice to be inside in the kitchen!

My coconut oil is no longer solid! Hello summer and windows open!

I’ll leave you with a view I can’t get over this May – the blooming trees were gorgeous last week! I couldn’t get enough of them and am so glad I took this picture on my walk when I did because the next day a storm came through and all of the flowers were on the ground!
