Budget Friendly Outdoor Patio

Hi friend! The summer countdown is on here! 2 1/2 days until school’s out for SUMMER!!!  And I have no idea what we’re gonna do all day! When I was a young mama, I made all these grand plans and summer bucket lists, but not one year did we do all those things!

Now, I’m way more playing it by ear, but I still like our days to have some semblance of a plan/routine or I feel start to fell all anxious.  We don’t have any camps planned, but we are going on two trips.  My son and I are heading to Miami next week and at the end of summer, we’re renting a beach house in Galveston for the whole family.

Aaaaannnndddd, for my boyfriend’s 53rd birthday, we’re going to San Miguel for five days in June!  He’s always wanted to go there, but hasn’t ever been, so that’s coming up next month.

It’s all the in-between time that I have no idea what we’re going to do!  Let me know in the comments how you structure your summer with kiddos!


I do know we will be spending time outside in the backyard.  My daughter loves to splash around in the sprinklers or little pool, and we do enjoy eating outside in the evenings.  Below are some ideas for sprucing up your patio to make it a place you want to be this summer.

    Ohh! Wish we had kiddos. The table is adorable. Would be great for dining outdoors or arts & crafts. Good finds, Megan!

    Link #8 is incorrect, it goes to the Loft.
