Summer is here!

I have compiled a list of items that will ensure you have the ultimate summer while staying at home.

Movie nights are always a great excuse to get creative and have a little fun with theming either by way of printable activity sheets, decorations or food. I'm not usually one to try out a bunch of DIY projects or get super crafty, but every once and a while I get an idea in my head that I just have to try. When you think about Poppy, Branch, Guy Diamond, what is one thing that comes to your mind? Their hair! I had some extra cotton candy in the house left-over from Easter and I had recently bought ice cream cones for make your own sundaes when a light bulb went off.

I'm sure you've seen the same ads I have (for years) about FabFitFun and how "great" it is and how you get a box that has a value of $200 for $50 and blah blah blah. Well, I gave into peer pressure last year and signed up. The first box I received was FabFitFun's Fall 2019 box . What finally got me to sign up? This super cute Kate Spade lunch tote. I love Kate Spade and I thought the design of the lunch tote was really neat and no you cannot ask me how many times I've used it. Don't be rude. Anyway, lunch tote aside, I found that I really enjoyed my first box from FabFitFun so I decided to stick with it and I've since received their Winter 2019 box and the Spring 2020 box. I'll also get the Summer 2020 box in the coming weeks though I'm not sure if I'll continue beyond that. Being indecisive about wanting to continue with FabFitFun does not mean I didn't enjoy this experience. In fact, I think getting FabFitFun boxes has even taught me a few things about myself.
