I’m sharing Secret in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™.
So…it’s Memorial Day weekend this weekend and I’m over here just trying to figure out when in the world time started going in fast forward X10? I think it was about the time Blake was born….not during pregnancy though, my pregnancy I am still convinced lasted about 20 years. The second she was born though, lightening speed and now all of sudden she’s turning two in a month and I’m like, where did my baby go? And how is it already Memorial Day weekend? So many thoughts today people, so many thoughts.
BUT since it is about to be Memorial Day weekend and I have had quite a few of y’all ask our plans or if I have any tips or tricks to fun Memorial Day ideas for families, I figured let’s blog post it up. This year I am actually really excited for Memorial Day weekend, mainly because we have a house, WITH A BACKYARD. Which means we will be doing exactly what you’re thinking — backyard BBQ and fire pit! I am making Marcus hang the new lights for our backyard TONIGHT and we will be having family over, BBQ burgers, roasting marshmallows and pulling out the mini blow up pool for the kids. I’m seriously stoked about it. I’m the one weird person that actually really LOVES hosting little parties at my house. It’s just fun to me to plan, have friends and family over and just have fun. It kind of takes away all the stress of life for just a little bit and allows me to sit back, relax and enjoy the now, even if just for a few minutes.
I’m also depending on my Secret Deodorant (I use the Clinical Strength in the clear gel and invisible solid), because well one, it’s hot, two, while I might love it all, it can be a little stressful preppin’ for the fun to happen! Luckily, Secret’s Clinical Strength Collection provides 2x the sweat protection vs. an ordinary antiperspirant, which means I can wear what I want, look cute and not have to worry about it. It’s Stress-Tested for woman and great on any fabric type. Which means I’m not going to be pitting out when things get hot. Seriously though y’all, I’ve had a baby, I have infertility, my hormones are WHACK…so this is a legitimate concern and I’m so happy to have a product that kicks that to the curb! Want to see what I’ll be rockin’ this Memorial Day, here’s a peek of my outfit of choice (and you can even shop it):
Now, as for the fun, there will be kids here so obviously I have to keep this family friendly which is where I’m sharing a couple tricks I’ll be doing!
- A mini pool, it’s finally hot enough here to swim a little, so I’ll have the kiddie pool out for the kids to play in! Plus, the trampoline and swing set, they should be totally good to go 🙂
- Fun food — I am going to make a couple fun treats that are totally kid friendly and then have a little cookie decorating bar, so that while us adults are hangin’ out they can make cookies and you know, eat all the sugar? 😉 It’s fine.
- Keep it short, sweet and fun — Obviously everyone can stay as long as they want, but I love hosting things as a come and go when you want type of thing, then people can leave whenever and honestly, be late if need be because well…parenting life, I get that. 😉
So, put your Secret on, get BBQing, bring out the kiddie pool and let’s friggin’ rock this Memorial Day people!
