Summer To-Do

I love lists. If you know me, you might have an idea of how much I love lists. I love making exhaustive lists. Sometimes I do this as a means of procrastination, but other times it’s because I need to motivate myself, and breaking tasks down into their components helps get me over the hurdle of actually starting a thing. I saw an idea for seasonal to-do lists on a mama vlog I keep up with, and I decided I wanted to make it a thing. With having a baby and being back in school, having a running list is hopefully going to help me get through this summer in a fun and productive way, instead of letting it speed by and waking up on the other side with nothing to show for the season.

Summer, ahoy!

Family list

  1. Go camping
  2. Go to the Farmer’s Market at least once a week
  3. Go on family bike rides as much as possible
  4. Make cookies for neighbors
  5. Walk to Heyn’s for ice cream once a week

Clare List

  1. Throw a laid-back 1st birthday party
  2. Figure out a craft project we can do together at this age (tie-dye? finger painting?)
  3. Play in the front yard
  4. Swimming lessons!
  5. Figure out how to do a back carry with our woven wrap

Health/Beauty List

  1. Get a pedicure. My feet are not summer-ready!
  2. Make some soap
  3. Make some homemade surf spray
  4. Find that tinted moisturizer of my dreams. My Laura Mercier oil-free TM is okay, but I don’t love it.
  5. Figure out a recipe for the perfect smoothie

I’ve also got a list running over at our house blog for home-related things. What’s on your list this summer?

  • What kind of smoothies do you want to make? R makes some pretty amazeballs green smoothies and I’m sure would share the recipe!

    • I welcome all recipes! I actually really need a regular blender, I think. I got an immersion one, thinking it could handle smoothies, but it’s not very efficient.

      Mostly, I’ve been making mixed berry ones with frozen berries and yogurt.

  • Karrey, this is the boys favorite smoothie. You can share with Clare 🙂
    2 frozen bananas, frozen berries of choice, coconut milk, 2 handfuls of spinach, chia seeds & hemp protein powder.
    My Favorite: pureed pumpkin, almond milk, frozen bananas, pumpkin pie spice and sweetener of your choice.
    One more…frozen bananas, sunflower seed butter (or peanut butter), milk of choice and cocoa powder.
    Can you tell we like smoothies over here?
