Well, we gave Nigel his Father’s Day gift on Memorial Day. Yes, I know it’s way early, but we had a good reason.
That reason is…we just couldn’t hide it for a month.
We got him a new grill, and the story of how we got it for him is pretty hilarious, and how we “attempted” to hide it is even more ridiculous. I’ll share more about that when we get closer to Father’s Day, because it’s totally worthy of its own blog post or Instagram Live video.
But long story short, he’s got a new grill and I’m ready for him to start using it.
I don’t eat much meat, so if you’ve got some good veggie recipes for grilling, please send them my way so I can pass them on to my personal chef. Aka, my husband.

Before You Go
Summer is a season for knocking out all your home projects, and getting everything organized before kiddos go back to school. What’s on your summer to-do list? I’d love to share some specific tips on the blog just for you! Let me know in the comments below.
Summer plans = soak it all in before my first starts his first school year (I need a Kindergarten checklist/binder kit lol). Also, make the backyard more functional and not just a huge patch of grass, bugs, and dog poop.
Thoughts on the black pool trend:
1. I love black…
2. but, HELL NAH!
3. How does one clean it without missing the little things?
4. I have a fear of deep water from not being able to SEE the bottom or what lies beneath……………..no. just…..no.

Such a great list of summer plans! And you should get one of those claw-like poop scoopers. Your kids will think it’s fun to pick up poop for you. haha! And I feel the same way about not being able to see the bottom of the pool. Scary!!! (And the back to school binder kit is coming next month! Your wish is my command!)
