in my bag … summer picnic

Recently my husband and I celebrated our five-year anniversary. I had plans of making a fabulous fried chicken picnic and spending the afternoon at a local park. Sadly I never got my act together to transform the picnic from a plan to action, oh well. I thought that I would share the menu and my plans with you in the hope that someone, somewhere will go on this beautiful picnic.

Crispy fried chicken, creamy macaroni salad, cool melon and prosciutto followed by chocolate stout brownies, yum! A fresh and summary watermelon gin and tonic kept cool in a Swell bottle is the perfect complement to the meal. I opt for paper plates that can be discarded at the park but choose to  use cotton napkins to keep it classy. Do you go on picnics with your family? If so what do you like to bring?

in my bag … the pool

Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner and everyone will be heading to the nearest pool, beach or lake for some summertime fun. These are the essentials that make it into my bag every summer. Good reading… sometimes I bring a book but most of the time it’s magazines. Mineral based sunscreen… have you been reading all the terrible things about the chemicals in sunscreen recently? I turned to Kiehl’s and have not been disappointed. Hydration… the night before we head out I fill the largest water bottle I have, this one is a whopping 48oz, half full with water and some sliced lemons, and place it in the freezer. The next day I top it off with water and have a nice cool drink for most of the day. Footwear… I love a good flip-flop and for me these days that is anything with an arch support like these ladies from rainbow. A soft landing… a good towel is worth its weight in gold. These are personalized so I never have to worry about using someone else’s towel, not my thing. Sun Shade… I must have a good floppy hat, there is only so much sun that a lady can have on her face. Lip Balm… I apply this religiously year round, but if I am skiing or sitting by the water I make sure that I have sun protection in it as well. I can’t wait until next weekend! So what do you keep in your summer bag?
