Summer plans!

The summer season is coming! I'm so excited. The warm weather always gets me excited for Christmas. This year we are spending Christmas on the Sunshine Coast, so that means BEACH! It's going to be amazing. My job this year is to make the bonbons :) I'm going to personalise each one. 

Anyway, this is my summer time list of things to do...

♥ Go to the beach as often as possible
♥ Have a few picnics
♥ Late afternoon walks
♥ Use our complex swimming pool
♥ Buy another sweet bikini (hopefully Seafolly
♥ Wear lots of pretty dresses and skirts
♥ Take a lot of photos
♥ Attend Finders Keepers Spring/Summer markets
♥ Read light books
♥ Go on a trip to Melbourne
♥ Have BBQs
♥ Eat lots of watermelon

I have more plans but I work A LOT over this season. Jason and I desperately want to go to Hamilton Island again. That's where we went on our honeymoon but it's the rainy season in summer. 

Oh and another plan is to make some head bands. I have some supplies from Etsy.

These are some of my supplies. I hope to get some fabric to make some flowers too. Hopefully these will end up in my Etsy shop. 

We get our new registers tomorrow. Have a wonderful week!

It has been raining here all weekend, so reading your post about the summer there made me a bit jealous hee. I'm sure those headbands will be lovely. Have a great week ahead Gracie! :)

They sound like really nice summer plans. It is slowly warming up here but not feeling summery just yet. I love that your a christmas lover too, I am already so excited. I am really struggling with writing my list for people though.
Oh swimmer shopping is my biggest nightmare, I hope I can find something I like.

Oh, i'm excited to see all that you're going to create with those materials!

Your summer plans sound great! I used to live in southern california and would go to the beaches all the time! They were all so beautiful! The best time to go, I've noticed, was on a weekday afternoon--as people were either at work or at school.

Fun! Our summer is just ending and I am pretty excited for "fall" - although we don't have a real autumn in Los Angeles :(

Claire Kiefer said...

It is so funny to hear you talk about summer coming when ours has just faded away. :) I'm a little jealous of your summer, although fall here is pretty spectacular as well. I love your list!

As you get excited about getting out your dresses, I cannot wait to wear my coats and boots! I can't wait to see your headbands.. Are they easy to make?

That is so awesome! I would like to try my hand at making lolipops :)

Looking forward to seeing what you make.

Even your supplies look lovely!
Growing up in the Northern hemisphere, I am used to thinking of Christmas and cold, grey weather together. But I hope you are enjoying the lovely warm weather in your part of the world :)

Yay, Summer plans! Wasn't this weekend devine? I am so in love with warm weather.

Christmas on the Sunshine Coast is so exciting! I can't wait to spend a week there for my honeymoon. Where are you staying? We'll be staying in Caloundra.

Hooray for new registers! The Brookside Myer now has them, the girl in the shoe department was so excited she was telling everyone she served!

I can't wait to see the headbands in your etsy store.
