Say it ain’t so?!
The end of Summer is near! And, for some school has already begun. Summer flew by in a blink!
No need to fret, there are a few more Summer days left. I’ve rounded up eleven end of summer bucket list ideas. Perfect for moms to celebrate their accomplishments and get a much needed break! Cheers to that!
The Ultimate End of Summer Bucket List for Moms
Toast to New Beginnings
The beginning of the school year signifies the end of the Summer. It’s time to recharge and refocus on another school year. Our kids are one year older while we are one year wiser. Gather the girlfriends and talk about your upcoming goals for the year. Reflect on Summer’s memories and feel free to vent about the hard times.
I recently joined my friend for some girl talk. We sipped on the creamy Butter Chardonnay to combat the hot Texas heat. I love anything with butter, so it makes sense I would also love this refreshing wine. The JaM Cabernet was our JAM because it’s flavor is rich with blueberry and plum undertones.
California is known for their amazing winemaking skills and the JaM Cab is no different. It’s delicious and satisfying (especially when paired with chocolate). When I sipped on this wine I taste berries with a touch of vanilla.
Head to the library
Grab a book and read in complete silence. Beware you might doze off if you aren’t too careful because silence is golden.
Being a mom is tough. Raising little humans is challenging. It’s vital that as moms we take the time to relax and pamper ourselves. Consider a spa treatment, manicure/pedicure or getting your hair done. You will walk out feeling like a million bucks.
Dine out with friends
You deserve a meal cooked by someone else along with uninterrupted adult conversations. Did I mention you don’t have to do the dishes either? SOLD!
For some moms, trying to find time to workout in the Summer can be challenging. Although I consider chasing children around the house a workout in itself. Find some time to go for a walk, join a fitness class, or go for a swim. There’s no better way to beat stress than burning a few calories.
Revisit Your Hobby
When was the last time you enjoyed your hobby? Whether that is shopping, working out, crafting, reading or traveling rediscover your hobbies and make the time to do them. You will thank yourself later.
Go Back-to-School Shopping… for yourself
We often forget about ourselves in the midst of taking care of everyone else. Take a shopping spree sans kids and buy a few outfits for you!
Watch a Movie
Go the movie theatre to enjoy the latest romance flick or horror film if you dare. Anything that isn’t a cartoon! Don’t want to get out of the house? Binge watch your favorite series you have been dying to watch all Summer.
Take a Nap
Naps are a coveted treat. Feel no guilt by sneaking in a few zzz’s for yourself.
Sometimes less is more and doing nothing is king!
Plan a date night out or in with your husband
We love to sit out on our back patio once the kids go down and simply talk! If we a sitter then we go out to dinner.
I wish I could squeeze in all of these end of summer bucket list ideas but I know I won’t have enough time or money. I suggest picking a few of them that you REALLY want to do!
The best news about celebrating the end of Summer with JaM Cellars is that their wines are under $20 and in a store right near you.
Grab a glass of your favorite JaM wine and toast to another school year. Hopefully this one won’t fly by so quickly, but who am I kidding?
