Outdoor Summer Concert Planning Checklist

26 Jun

concert collage 2I love going to outdoor concerts to hear some of my favorite artists.  It’s a great excuse to get together with friends and enjoy music at the same time.  Over the years I have learned some tricks to making it an enjoyable evening by planning ahead.  I thought I would share some of my tips with you on how to plan for a memorable outing!

A week before the concert, start an email with your group to plan for food.  With our friends, we typically volunteer to bring food that’s portable and easy to share.  I usually have everyone “reply to all” to get an idea of what’s being planned so you don’t end up with all desserts or six cheese platters!

I’ve put together a checklist of items you will need for your outdoor concert and everyone can chip in with different items.  Here’s a handy list of items to bring to your outdoor concert:

Outdoor-Summer-Concert-Planning-Checklist

This list can seem a little overwhelming.  Just plan ahead and it will be smooth sailing and a great day (or evening) of friendship and fun.

Do you have any tips you’d like to share?  I’d love to hear if you have any other tips I missed!  And feel free to share what outdoor summer concerts you are planning to attend this summer.

xoxo,

Jennifer

3 Great Summer Reads

22 Jun

It’s officially summer!  Time to hit the beach or pool and fit in some great books while relaxing.  I am in a book club and get the chance to read books I might not otherwise have picked on my own. And being busy with 3 active kids, I look forward to the times I can read which I consider “me” time.  I wanted to share three of my favorite books from the last few months that are great summer reads.

GirlontheTrain

Everywhere I go, people are talking about The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.  This is really the perfect summer book.

AlltheLightWeCannotSee

I just finished All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. This was a very well written book that really draws you in.  It’s one of those books that will stay with you for a long time.

Orphan Train

I read Orphan Train by Christine Baker Kline over Spring Break.  This was such a great story and another perfect pick for summer.

What books have you read lately that would be perfect picks for summer reading?  I would love if you would add your favorites in the comments below so I can find some new reads for summer! And if you do read any of my picks, tell me what you think of them!

Happy reading!

Cheers,

Jennifer
