What do we love this summer? Häagen-Dazs® and Outshine® treats! When do we love them? As delicious snacks in the middle of adventuring! Some of our family favorites? Cassidy and I love Häagen-Dazs® – Vanilla and Häagen-Dazs® Spirits – Bourbon Vanilla. We all four love Outshine® Strawberry, Outshine® Fruit and Cream – Creamy Strawberry, and Outshine® Half Dipped – Dark Chocolate Raspberry. Bonus? We can find all of these and more at Stop & Shop, so it’s so easy to stock up on our favorite flavors.
This is also a most interesting summer! We kicked it off the day after Des’ birthday. Yay for late northeast summer vacations! Then, we had a week of what I call “Mama Camp” and now, Cassidy and I are taking a California honeymoon while the kids go to “Nana Camp” with my family in New Jersey. Then, we’re back and excited for the next two months. Usually, the kids do a LOT of summer camp but this year settled on 2-3 artsy theater camps instead. They’re also doing circus camp in Cape Cod and a writing camp. I’m so excited for them and these fun opportunities.
Summer Bucket List Jar:
This Summer Bucket List Jar is about the simple pleasures of summer—like finding mini adventures, discovering new (and air-conditioned) libraries, catching fireflies, and heading to Stop & Shop for your favorite cold treats. (will use client link over “cold treats”) These are the days in which we don’t have huge and epic adventures planned. Rather, we want to see where the day takes us. The best kind of summer.
I’m being sincere here when I say there’s one snack my kids love more than nearly anything: Outshine® products! They bring our family together, and they align with our bigger, brighter, and more colorful values. You know it—this family is all about bright, colorful, and adventurous lives. Well, there’s an Outshine® Bar for everyone. The flavors are varied and delicious, and they help us shine. I had no idea how much I’d love them, but they’re our favorite snack. And they’re a snack I feel good about! There are always at least three flavors in the freezer.
And Häagen-Dazs® is a personal indulgence—a moment just for me. Or for us, since Cassidy is a huge fan too. We love all three classic flavors and new ones, too. There is no summer without ice cream.
We’re constantly having parties, 4th of July celebrations, and last-minute get-togethers at our house. That said, it’s about having the freezer stocked for a lot more than that. It’s about the celebration of summer and the little moments that make up our memories. That’s why I’m sharing our simple Summer Bucket List Jars. This simple craft is how we begin our summer.
Make a Summer Bucket List Jar:
What You Need:
Gift tags or colored scraps of paper
Marker or pen
What You Do:
1 – Write out your summer bucket list ideas on the tags or pieces of paper—this is about the everyday things that you can do on any given day.
2 – Mix them all up in your jar and pull one out every morning—or at least every morning you have time together or have nothing else to do.
3 – Do that activity! Sometimes you can even do more than one in a day.
4 – Take that tag and set it aside. If you go through the whole jar before summer is over, put the tags back in and mix them up!
5 – Enjoy every moment.
And of course, our favorite items from Stop & Shop factor in a few ways into our summer bucket list. You see, we love having picnics with our favorite treats and snacks. That’s one of those wonderful parts of summer—the adventures. Like packing up a cooler with Häagen-Dazs® – Vanilla, Häagen-Dazs® Spirits – Bourbon Vanilla, Outshine® Strawberry, Outshine® Fruit and Cream – Creamy Strawberry, and Outshine® Half Dipped – Dark Chocolate Raspberry.
I love the frozen aisle of Stop & Shop because it’s always so easy to find exactly what I want, and not only that but a lot of variety too! All the better for my Summer Bucket List Jar!
