School’s Out for SUMMER!

HOORAY!!

School is out!

That means it is

summer breaK!!

Are YOU ready?

Not sure that I am actually fully ready but
I’m putting on my game face!

Bummer that I still have to work my big-girl job while they’re off of school in the mornings but just that the kids are home makes for a relaxed feel around here…lovely!

--------------------

We’ve been dreaming up our summer bucket list

to add some structure and FUN to our more carefree days

I’ll be showing a fun little way to
keep track of the list
here soon!

We kicked off our first day of summer with
semi-homemade donuts!

Just by taking some grand biscuits

  3. What am I doing this summer? Clearly not dieting any time soon since I'm going to try making your donuts! They look yummy.

  4. Those donuts look so yummy and greasy and sweet and are screaming out at my carb deprived dieting self!

    Love the "sleep in" summer bucket list item ...

  9. These look SO yummy!! The last time we made homemade donuts, it was from the Roald Dahl Revolting Recipes cookbook. They were delicious. :)
