This weekend marks the official start to summer-woo hoo! Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate fully, I will still be in full Memorial Day summer mode this weekend. That means I need to have all the right supplies and I am pretty sure I’ve found them. Sure I will still be biking, swimming and running but I will also be doing some relaxing with my family. Here a just a few of my Memorial Day Must Haves.
Memorial Day Must Haves
Bathing Suit & Sunscreen
I found this super cute bra sized, underwire top at Athleta. I like that the top will (hopefully) stay in place if I decide to jump in and swim a few laps or throw the football around with my son. They are currently on sale for 20% off. Don’t forget the sunscreen! My new fave is Supergoop. I usually have to order it from Amazon and I love the tote with all the essentials.
Of course I am partial to my own Blueberry Iced Tea Spritzer which will keep you hydrated no matter what kind of fun you are up to this weekend. The frozen blueberry ice cubes are a game changer-just saying.
This is the weekend for grilling and no BBQ would be complete without burgers and beans. I am planning on my making one of my favorite veggie burger creations. I will most likely be whipping up a batch of these Spinach, Eggplant and white bean burgers.
Whichever type of burger you have at your BBQ make sure to pair them with a tasty baked bean side. The subtle taste of bourbon made these Vegan Bourbon Baked Beans a real winner last summer.
I love summer reading! Right now I am diving into this fun legal thriller and hope to finish it by this weekend. Everyone loves a good mystery. Find it here.
I am set for a relaxing and fun filled Memorial Day weekend with my family. Now if only I could make our weather forecast a little better!
Tell me: What’s on tap this weekend? Reading any good books? What are you cooking up this weekend?
