Ingredients… For a Stellar Summer

While not exactly edible, per se, I thought it would be fun to make a sweet summer recipe for summertime fun. Here’s what I’ve got so far…

tbd:Amazon:photo

1 Tablespoon: Boardwalk bike ride.

3 Cups: Sunsets, with a dash of Phoenix and the Beach Boys.

A sprinkle of cucumber lemonade.

2 Cups: Outdoor concert or music festival. {Note: For a strong flower child flavor, try Tennessee’s finest, Bonnaroo. If you prefer a hint of city slicker chic opt for Chicago’s Lollapalooza. Or, for a chill finish, add Colorado’s Mile High Music Festival.}

3 Teaspoons: Sunday (champagne) brunch. Girls only.

1 Pint: Uncertain adventure.

A splash of midnight swimming.

1 heaping scoop of long naps on the beach.

A pinch of spontaneous road-trips.

1 stick of cocoa butter (and some SPF, for tanning, of course).

Instructions: Mix all ingredients together over a 3 month span and enjoy!
What are you hoping to do over the summer ? Make your to-do list and post it in the comments below.

XO Lauren

P.S. Happy first day of summer!

  • Jennifer Sellen

    OMG I love this. What a cool idea… I have a suggestion for the “”2 cups of outdoor concerts or festivals”". I always love going to the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles. They always have great concerts for a reasonable price. My parents want to take me to the FREE beatles tribute band. They dress and sound like them… its going to be great. Plus its fun to walk around the fair and check out all the booths and stuff. I want to try to go to at least one amusement park this summer. I am such a kid when it comes to amusement parks… And definitely I wanna soak up more sun but I will try to do it with caution!!! ;) Thanks for the tips Lauren

  • Lauren Taylor

    Lots of unplanned beach trips! Bonfires and pool parties, too. Beer and mixed drinks with good friends. A trip to the water park.

    Midnight swimming is a good idea. I’ll be on my way to Saskatoon, Sasketchewan this Friday (A two-day trip from Ohio to mid-west Canada). My cousins and I should do that over the long weekend, July 1st to 4th, at the lake! It sounds like something our parents would have done with their aunts growing up.

    Also, I think I have had more than what comes with one Pint of uncertain adventure- like a Pinch of spontaneous(not totally uninvited…)-birthday party-crashing (“”happy birthday!”" “”We got you a chair!”"), a handful of haunted graveyard-exploring, two cups of the Right-Left-or-Strait Game, multipule tablespoons of “”come with us! We’re having fun!”" moments, and enough meeting new people and falling in love with the same one to keep me full until next spring. :)

    5. Buy a starbucks card, subscribe online, gain stars, discover new drinks!
    6. Blog every day
    7. Go to sea world
    8. Take a road trip to Salvation Mountain
    9. Go to the Harry Potter Premiere
    10. Save 30% of paycheck into savings

    13. Girls night! Bring out the romantic movies and ben & jerrys!
    14. Read the Bible every week
    15. Buy clothes on sale

    This is a minimized list that we made, but the main point is to have the best summer you could possibly have!
