I can’t wait to say a goodbye to winter! I am so ready to get in the summer mindset and enjoy the warm weather and upcoming vacations! The summer just instantly lifts my mood and I wish I could feel that way all year long. It may not be quite here yet, but we can start getting ready for summer by doing a few fun things.
When I think summer, I think of fun and relaxing vacations. I usually start planning everything out when the weather gets a little warmer and I start getting excited thinking about all the places we could go. Start planning your trip and even put a countdown calendar on the fridge to get the whole family excited. Get the kids involved with the planning and make it a real family affair.
Summer also means swimsuits. I am nowhere near ready to start swimsuit shopping! On the other hand, I am all about shopping for sandals and sunglasses. It is a much easier way to get ready for the summer months instead of trying to squeeze into a swimsuit when I am going to lose those last 5 lbs., darn it!
Speaking of sandals, now is the time to start getting our feet summer ready. I live in sandals and flip flops during the summer so I want my tootsies to look good. I love getting pedicures this time of year to really get me in the summer mindset. When my feet look good, I feel good!
One of the other things I like to do is getting my patio in order. I make a list of what needs to be cleaned, replaced, or just thrown away. It’s the perfect time to do a good cleaning so that I can relax on my chaise and read a book or even work outside when the weather is lovely in the summer. I also like getting pretty little potted flowers to have out there too.
To get your taste buds on board for summer, I love eating anything tropical; pineapple, coconut, mango, kiwi, etc. I saw that Sunsweet has a new line of dried fruit flavors that are perfect to get you in the summer mindset; Philippine Tropicals: Thai Coconut Chip and Philippine Green Mango.
These are the perfect on the go snack to keep in the car or in your purse. They are a lot better for your waistline then chips and candy. We know how we want our waistline in the summer! There are four yummy flavors in the Philippine Tropicals collection: Philippine Mango , Philippine Pineapple, Thai Coconut Chip, and Philippine Green Mango. There is something for everyone. The fruit is produced in ideal growing conditions so that you get the best flavor of the tropics.
I was sent all four flavors to try and they are really yummy. My finace loved the Philippine Mango flavor and I really liked the Thai Coconut. It reminded me of the Samoa Girl Scout cookies. They are a really great snack that I don’t feel guilty about.
Sunsweet wants to help you really get in the summer mindset with their new Sunsweet Find Your Paradise Sweepstakes . You can win the grand prize which is a trip to a tropical destination: Hawaii, Caribbean Cruise or Florida. There are some other great weekly prizes like a gift basket containing the new Tropicals flavors and beach gear.
To enter the sweeps, vote for your desired tropical location. It’s that easy! I know I would be voting for Hawaii, but that’s just me. Where would you like to go? Let me know some of the things you enjoy doing to get in the summer mindset. I am always looking for more ways to relax and enjoy the season.
