Kick Off Summer Giveaway

Summer GiveawaySummer is almost here! My kids have a couple days of school left, then it’s no schedules and later wake up times (that’s a huge one for me). If your family is anything like mine, you’re all pretty excited for what summer has in store… warm weather, vacation, lots of time outside, family adventures, etc! Do you have any idea what YOU are going to do this summer? Don’t worry, we’ve got it covered for you!

15 of my favorite bloggers have put together themed, Summer Activity Packages that each value over $75! Packages filled with everything from healthy summer snacks, a family movie night, crafts and boredom busters (for the kids), summer pampering and fashion (for you), capturing summer memories, and so much more!

my giveaway final

My giveaway is filled with everything you need for a day at the beach. We’re lucky enough to live 25 minutes away from a beach, but if you don’t, I’m sure you can find some good use for these goodies.


 Sand Free Tote bag: A large bag to hold all of your beach gear with an internal pocket for your phone and wallet.


JJ Cole’s Essential Blanket: I have a blanket like this. It’s water resistant, washable, and perfect for the beach.


Smashball: This was totally my husband’s idea. I love to just lay on the beach. But with kids, that rarely happens. My husband, on the other hand, likes to play hard on the beach.


Aerobie Pro Flying Ring: Super easy to catch and hours of family fun with this.


You’ll need a beach towel!


And don’t forget to protect your skin!
