25 cheap (or free!) summer activites!

While summer as an adult may not be as carefree and open as it was when we were kids, it’s still a great time to get outside, try new things and just have fun!! But sometimes that can really put a stress on our budget, especially if we have any summer vacations to pay for too. But that doesn’t mean that all the fun has to stop. There are so many options out there that are free or cheap that can make for some great experiences and awesome memories.

Here are just a few that I could think of!

sunday meal prep 7/3/16

Hey everyone! Happy 4th of July weekend! I hope you are all having a wonderful long weekend (some of us in the US at least). Our weekend was actually pretty much the same as always, but that’s fine. Still got a lot done and had a great time! This week’s meal prep is actually another short one, but not for the same reasons as last time. Yay, I’m not sick anymore! But remember the pretty large amounts of food those quick and easy meals made last week? Well, we ended up with so much food that we ended up not needing as much this week! So I got to enjoy a weekend working on the blog and business, with a smaller amount of cooking 🙂 They were new recipes and turned out delicious!


Spend less time in the kitchen and more doing the things you love! In 2 hours of active cooking you can make a delicious stir-fry, lentil soup and salads, plus enough snacks to last the whole week!Read More

links I love 7/1/16

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic week and have an exciting weekend ahead of you! We don’t have much for weekend plans here, but we did have a fantastic week! As you might have seen, I launched my Etsy store this week! (Want to check it out? Click the “Shop” tab on the top menu!) It’s something I was working on for a long time and I’m so happy to have finally taken that next step! That was most of my focus for the week, but I did have some excitement even outside of that. One of my best friends came to visit, so we got to get some breakfast and go for a hike! She lives out of state, so I only get to see her a couple times a year. We had a great time!


My favorite picture of the week! Tammy and I on our hike together 🙂
