The Party Ain't Over

Yep - I said ain't - but I'm from the south, so what do you expect? 

The 4th is over <insert sad face and loud whine> but that doesn't mean the party is over!  Here are some tips to get you through 'til labor day! 

1. Take a long weekend.
No, it isn't your annual week long vacay, but it sure does feel nice to know you only have a 4 day work week!  Take a quick weekend trip to the beach (and if you're in Carolina that only means a 3-4 hour drive) or rent a boat for a lake weekend!  Want to save money?  Then just take the day off!  Sit on your back porch, read a book on the couch in an empty house, or lay in bed until noon! 

I recently took a 24 hour trip to Ocean Isle Beach and split the room 4 ways.  It was the best $50 I've ever spent!  Any weekend is better when a tiki bar is involved! 

2. Eat something new.
One of my favorite things about summer vacation is eating new foods!  Sure, call me the fat girl on the trip for thinking of food, but I REFUSE to eat anything that I can get at home!  Here are some fun ideas to mix into your regular meal planning (thanks PINTEREST!)

Tacos in Pasta Shells
Grilled Avocado Bites

Grilled Chicken Tzatziki Wrap

5 Layer Greek Dip

3. Mix it up.
Sure, it might only be a Tuesday, but there is nothing wrong with mixing up some margaritas and sitting in your backyard!  It's summertime - close your eyes, drink it down and pretend you're on a coast somewhere... where is that pool boy again??  Here are some drink recipes to try out!
