Summer is in full swing here. Sun is out, well except the past few days. Like a lot of people, we spend a lot of time at the beach in the summer. Sometimes the hubby and I just grab some food and a bottle of wine and have a little romantic dinner to ourselves. Sometime’s it’s with everybody and their dog. We go so much that this year we’ve just left the major picnic gear in our car. Mainly because our storage locker a.k.a the “leaning tower of pisa” is a hazard to my safety and sanity. Seriously, last time I was in there, a suitcase fell on my head while I was holding up another suitcase with my head. Oh….to have a house.
I always have a list of stuff to bring when it’s the usual group. I make lists/spreadsheets for EVERYTHING. You should see my spreadsheets for when we’ve moved….. Or maybe you shouldn’t, you might think I’m a little nuts. Don’t judge.
So, here are 8 of my summer picnic must haves!
1. Graphite Grey Turkish Cotton Beach Towel // 2. Coca-Cola 1940′s Replica Cooler // 3. Light Blue Chevron Plates // 4. How Does She Do It Beach Tote // 5. iHome Portable Bluetooth Stereo Speaker // 6. Monaco Red Beach Chair // 7. Poppytalk Charcoal Camp Stove // 8. Frankford Beach Umbrella
Oh, and speaking of awesome picnic stuff, have you seen the “Coolest Cooler” yet? I’m obsessed with this. Ryan Grepper had a goal of reaching $50,000 for his kickstarter campaign and at today’s mark, he’s now grossed $7,118,666. Yes that’s right SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS!! And he still has 35 days left on his campaign. My husband turns to me and says, “See sweetie, you just need to come up with an idea like that and then I can retire rich!”. That’s love people.
