Hi friends! Welcome back to my blog and welcome to a fresh, new week! As much as I LOVE the weekend, I’m also one of those weird people who like Mondays. I enjoy the rhythm of the slow weekend, followed by a GSD start to the week.
I prepare my schedule for the week on Sunday with all my workouts, appointments, blog posts and to-do’s so I’m ready to go with a plan on Monday morning. And I’ve made it a habit to do my favorite workout class on Mondays- it’s an hour HIIT/weight lifting class taught by Colleen- a woman in her 60s with the best personality and motivation.
They say “never miss a Monday” and I can see why! It makes you feel productive and accomplished while doing something great for your own well-being!
Today, I’m looking forward to summertime and long weekends and having fun in the backyard. I’m planning on doing a backyard bbq with Brian and the kids this Memorial weekend and so many of these things are on my own list!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A FUN BACKYARD BBQ | ALL ON PRIME
1 • Let’s start with these Food Covers because, let’s face it, nothing spoils a picnic or bbq faster than flies in your food. These covers come in a set of 6 or 12 and pop up like mini umbrellas and collapse for easy storage.
2 • I love to put little nibbles out and these Section Trays are perfect for that. They come in a set of 4 and are a great size too- 15″ long x 5″ wide with three compartments. You can stack and machine wash them and sine they’re acrylic, you don’t have to be so delicate with them.
3 • A BBQ just isn’t complete without S’mores! This S’mores Station is electric and works indoors or out! It roasts your marshmallows to perfection without the flame.
4 • This Toss Game came highly recommended by friends and has nearly 8,000 positive reviews. You throw the disk into the barrels for points and the barrels fold together so it’s easy to store.
5 • Grilling Baskets makes grilling veggies or fish so easy so they don’t fall through the grates.
6 • I have this galvanized Three Tiered Stand my kitchen and use it for my drink station, but it’s also great for an outdoor BBQ. You can fill it with treats for your next outdoor party. Made with real steel so it won’t rust!
7 • This Grill Tools Set set comes with 25 pieces, so it covers ALL.THE.THINGS you might need for gilling this summer! And it comes in a storage case. A great Father’s Day gift for the man that loves to grill.
8 • These Corn on the Cob Holders are in weekly use over here since my kids love corn on the cob. I love they size of the handles and how they interlock to fit together so you don’t get poked grabbing a set out of your drawer. The colors are fun too!
9 • What a pretty pitcher for pouring water, lemonade or iced tea- maybe even sangria if you’re feeling sassy! It’s acrylic and shatterproof and holds 72 ounces.
8 • I love how fresh a white sneaker looks and these are too cute with the star pattern.
9 • This white swimsuit comes in a classic ribbed pattern and I love the wider straps for support. It would also look great with your jean shorts.
Do you have any plans for Memorial Weekend? Will you be out of town or at home? Brian and I looked at taking the kids out of town, but ended up deciding against it. A day at the pool and a backyard BBQ will be chill and so fun.
