Right now we are definitely in the “Sunday” of the summer. We have less than 20 days of camp, about 4 more weeks until school begins, and I know in other parts of the country, school has started or is about to start. I can’t believe its August already!
July was filled with lots of fun for the Momma To Go Family – a trip to Atlantic City to celebrate the Fourth, many hours spent at the beach and pool, and a great first session of camp! I have somehow managed to keep up this blog by working on it in the mornings, evenings, and weekends. And I am especially thankful for all the great guest posts I have had this month.
Stuff I Love: July 2017
Ironman Triathlon Watch (by Timex). This has been a very outdoorsy month! And this month’s list definitely reflects that! I am working at my kids’ camp, as a counselor to a group of 5-year old girls. So I am out in the heat all day. We are in the pool twice a day. Our activities change every 30 minutes, so as the head counselor, I need to know what time it is! So I am so glad I have this watch!
I actually won this watch a few years ago at the Sunrise Duathlon! This watch is so perfect for active people because it is totally waterproof and you don’t have to worry about taking it off in the pool! This would be great for a beach vacation as well, if you are in and out of the waves all day!
Victoria Secret Racer Back Bra. Sorry dudes, but I have to include this bra on this list. I have to wear a uniform shirt to camp – a tank top, and I hate when bra straps are showing! It’s one of my big pet peeves. So I have been wearing this bra under my tank almost every day (I wash it each night).
Because of the design of the straps, and the front clasp, you will never have to worry about slipping bra straps! And who knew you could order Victoria Secret on Amazon! At such a great price as well!
I’m also a fan of the Victoria Secret Bras where you can either criss –cross the straps or wear them in the standard, vertical way! These bras are very versatile and again eliminate that bra strap showing with my camp tanks!
Hello Fresh. In the past, I have ordered Hello Fresh boxes at random times, just to mix up our normal routine. I usually try them when I have a discount code. But for this summer, with working at camp all day, I decided to schedule Hello Fresh boxes on a more regular basis!
If you don’t know, Hello Fresh is a meal subscription service. I have the vegetarian 6 meals a week plan. So I get three meals, that made two servings each (I have found that the portions are large, I can get three portions out of at least one of the meals for the week).
The meals take about 30 minutes to make. Sometimes more because I don’t seem to work as efficiently as you should! I would definitely recommend reading all the instructions first, before you start!
The meals have been good. They add spices that I don’t normally use and techniques I wouldn’t think of (like pickling onions – so easy!). If you read my June Stuff I Love list, you know we love grilling and chilling in the summer, but Hello Fresh meals have been a nice addition to our summer menu. With of course my favorite, a nice cold glass of Butter Chardonnay!
What have you been loving this July? When do your kids start back at school?
