Summer Bucket List

Now that it’s June I’m sharing our summer bucket list! I kept it all pretty toddler friendly. And, in case you’re interested, I even made a printable at the end. :)

There are some things I’m personally planning to do this summer that didn’t make it on the list. Such as, sitting in Gryffin’s kiddi pool while sipping on a Mike’s Hard Margarita. #noshame

I’m sure I will think of more things to add to the list as the summer goes on, but I figured this is a good start! I am excited to document and share it all.

I decided to split it up into different categories – so here we go!

Food & Drink

  • Make peach cobbler
  • Make sun tea
  • Bake a cherry pie from scratch
  • Make Root Beer floats
  • Buy from the ice cream truck
  • Roast marshmallows
  • Make homemade salsa and guacamole

  • Go to a zoo
  • Visit an aquarium
  • Check out books at the library
  • Go to a farmers market
  • Go to a park with friends
  • Visit an animal shelter
  • Go to a splash pad
  • Go to a baseball game

Fun in the Sun

  • Color with sidewalk chalk
  • Feed the ducks
  • Run through the sprinklers
  • Play with bubbles

Happy Friday!

Since it’s been so long since I’ve made an actual post on my blog, I think now is a great time to update what I’ve been up to lately.

Currently Watching

Sesame Street, Daniel Tiger, Super Monsters.  Ha, mom life!  Actually, I still mostly watch a lot of YouTube when I have a small bit of free time or I’m cleaning.  I posted the links to my favorite channels a year ago, but I’m going to share them again.

Here are my top 3 favorites (not in any type of order).

2 – Brianna K

I found Bri through searching YouTube videos for working mom routines.  She was one of the very few people that had a channel and worked full-time outside the home.  She seriously gave me hope that being a mom and working full time was possible without completely losing it.  She’s a mom-preneure now, but I still love her and her channel.

P.S.  I have seriously contemplated starting my own channel just to get more support out there for us full-time working moms!

3 – Blair Lamb/Blair Blogs

I honestly can’t remember how I found Blair – Pinterest maybe?  I started reading her blog years ago and was following along when she started a YouTube channel.  She does a lot of weekly/weekend vlogs, including “clean with me” videos.  She’s down to earth and someone I feel like I could be friends with.

**Spoiler alert!  She just found out they’re going to have a baaaby!

1 – Kathryn Morgan

I found Kathryn’s channel through Facebook a few years ago.  There was a ballet barre routine she had filmed and after watching it I was hooked.  This also began my journey back to ballet.  Through watching her channel and doing her barre routines and exercises I gained the strength and confidence to join an adult ballet and lyrical class a couple summers ago.

After having a baby I haven’t done much dancing, but I continue to follow her videos (mostly repeats since she doesn’t post as much these days).  I absolutely love her and would honestly to love to meet her in person (that could be said for all three of these ladies I listed ;)

Currently Reading

She Reads Truth.  This is seriously one of the best online devotional sites.  I have a hard time being consistent with my quiet time, but this site has helped me the most.  The devotional series are always so good!

The Book of Hygge.  Before choosing this book I had been thinking a lot of being mindful and present in the moment and I wanted to find a book that might help me focus a little more on this.  After looking up different books I kept coming back to this one, mostly because it made me curious.  I’m a little over half way through and it’s been a good read so far.

Currently Making/Baking

Ummmm….a whole lot of nada!  Honestly, my husband is a rock-star does most of the cooking these days.  I’ll try and come up with something next month!

Current Obsession

This sound machine and projector has been a life saver!  We found this little gem at Target (you click here to view the official description).

Gryffin is going through an awful “I’m scared” stage that has wreaked havoc on bedtime.  This little machine has helped immensely with bedtime.  While he is still scared and I still have to lay with him until he falls asleep, he is not nearly as terrified of his room now.

There are 2 projector settings, one is fish (rotates between 2 kinds of fish and an octopus) and the other is barn yard animals (rotates between dog, pig, and sheep).  I thought he would be all about the barn animals, but nope, he loves the fish.   There are six different sound settings – I personally like listening to the waves.

Seriously, it’s been one of the best purchases we’ve made recently.

P.S. Stay tuned for more content coming up!  Soon you will see what’s on our summer bucket list!  I will also be starting a working mom routine series and more to come after that!  Thanks for following along. :)

Hello Again!!

I blinked and a year passed.

They say time goes by even faster after having kids (just one in my case), and it couldn’t be more true.  I’m so happy to be back in the blog world!

So let me reintroduce myself!

About me!

My name is Cami!  I’m a wife and mom from Washington state.  

I love to travel and I often plan virtual vacations just for the heck of it.  I love photography but forget to actually take pictures all the time.  And, of course, I love reading and watching blogs and vlogs.  

Moving on…    

I am an administrative assistant and work full-time outside the home.

I spend most of my time playing with my little boy and trying to keep up with housework (ha. ha.). 

Family

My husband and I have been married since 2008!  We met at a conference center where we worked in Cannon Beach, OR. 

After being introduced, we just kept hanging out together.  Before we knew it, we were official “boyfriend and girlfriend”.  2 years later we got engaged.  7 months later we were married, and *bam!*, just like that it’s been 11 years. 

We have since moved to Washington state and now have this little guy right here.

 

Gryffin, just turned 2 years old this past March!  So far he is our only baby (aside from our fur baby).  He’s rather shy at first, but also has been known to wave and loudly say hi to every single person he sees in the store and  parking lot.  

This is Kahlua – the above referenced fur baby. 

We adopted her from an animal shelter after we were married for 2 years.  This girl gave us a run for our money (oh, the stories we have) but she has turned into the sweetest dog.  She took a while to warm up to Gryffin, but she’s come a long way! 

The Blog

So, what’s this blog about?  Well, it’s about life and sharing it with all of you!

Work life, home life, mom life – it’s all overwhelming!  I plan on sharing my routines, advice, the good days, the bad days, and everything in between. 

I love the “What’s in my bag?” posts, and seeing what’s on your cleaning list, and what you do on the weekends.  This is my place to share it all!
