Summer is here! Today my oldest son is finishing his last day of Middle School... Yeah, I can't believe it either!

In a few short months I am going to have a High Schooler, a Kindergartner and a Preschooler. Instead of crying my eyes out now, because I know I will be doing plenty of that in September, I am just going to make the most of this summer and the beautiful weather that is upon us.

If you have followed my blog for any amount of time you know that every year I make a Summer Bucket List of things that the kids and I are going to do. And while I do have a list of things for us to do this summer, right now I am allowing myself to focus on just that. Myself.

I decided to make a Mommy's Summer Bucket List this year! I have all sorts of things that I would like to do and while some of them include my kids, a few of them don't! Us moms need a day off too every once in a while! So I headed to Target to get a few must haves to pack in my Summer tote.

One of the most important things when it comes to the Summer and being outside is Sun Screen. So the first things I grabbed were the New Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen Pump and also Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Face Lotion.

I picked these for several reasons like the amazing smell, because it is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation to protect against the sun’s harmful rays, and you really get to experience weightless indulgence. It is a protection you will barely feel and has hydrating ribbons for 12-hour moisturization.

A couple of other things I always have around are my mesh tote bag, a beach towel, books, a blanket, and snacks. Lots and lots of snacks!

I have a huge list of books on my Kindle that I want to read, but after discovery the Little Free Library's in my neighborhood I have several books that I am ready to sit down and read on my new cozy picnic blanket!


Finally, I want to share my Summer Bucket List and show you how you can make your very own!

So start with your favorite photo editing software. If you don't have one, just search for a free one and several will come up.

The one I use has a curious George type animal so head there and click "Design" and then select your size.

Add Design

If you want a color back ground select "canvas color" then pick your color. Or you can just make it white.

Add canvas color
Add a banner of some sort by selecting "banner". This one I used is a font that I have downloaded.

Add banner
Add your Title by selecting your font and whatever you'd like for it to say. I chose one font for "Mommy's" and a second font for "Summer Bucket List".

Add title
Then I added the numbers using the same font.

Then again with the same font I added my list.

Lastly, I added a fun flourish at the bottom of my list.

Then save it, and Voila! You just made your very own Summer Bucket List
