Happy Monday y’all! It’s always bittersweet to see the weekends come and go, but instead of mourning the loss of that glorious two days let’s just roll up our sleeves and embrace this new week full on… whaddyasay? To make the transition less painful, here are a handful of things that we’re looking forward to and a couple that we’re remembering fondly… aaah. Here we go!
1 | W I L D E X P L O R E R S C L U B | There’s finally a little breathing air to spare now that the pollen is calming down a bit, and we are itching to get out and start some exploring! A few friends of ours introduced us to the Wild Explorers Club, and we are totally stoked to get out there and do some nature-y things! You can join their community via a monthly subscription, and they give you an assignment to work on every week. There are different animal levels, and they can earn badges for each level as they complete their tasks. We literally just signed up, so haven’t tried anything yet… but it sounds promising!
2 | C F C P K I D S A R T / N I N J A C A M P | Tacie is gonna FLIP when she hears about this… of course, I can’t tell her yet, otherwise she’d be asking me about every 2.5 minutes if it’s time yet. And let’s be real. MAMA AIN’T READY FOR ALLLLL OF THAT. Our beloved gym, Crossfit College Park, is hosting a summer camp June 6-10 for kids ages 4-13 focusing on creativity, movement, and community. Basically, by the time they’re finished they’ll be artistic ninjas doing parkour everywhere. Better hop on their list fast for this! Spaces are limited, so don’t drag your feet! I’m kind of bummed that I’m too old… maybe I’ll just live vicariously through T-baby for the week. Lucky duck.
3 | A N D R E A B A K E S | Y’all. I have this friend… and she bakes cakes that will BLOW. YOUR. MIND. Andrea is one of those people that can just “whip something together with whatever I’ve got in the kitchen” and it still tastes better than anything I’ve ever made in my entire life… and that is absolutely not an exaggeration. She’s getting pretty into the world of cakery (is that a word? If not, I’m making it one) – and for good reason! Because these cakes are too good to not be shared with the public. You’ve gotta GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT! And they want cake. Really, really good cake. She’s done a few birthday cakes for us, and this past weekend she did one for our friend Kristin’s baby shower – AH-mazing. Daydreaming about it is basically what’s going to be getting me through this week, no big deal. Follow her on Insta to keep tabs on what she’s got cooking… but grab a napkin before you do, the drool is a-coming.

4 | A R C H E S B R E W I N G | Hapeville is one of our neighboring cities, and they just got a brand spankin’ new brewery! We were able to drop in their grand opening this weekend, and their place is niiiiiiice! The indoor space was done so well, and the outdoor space made for a great hangout atmosphere. Not to mention, their beer was SO good!! I sampled four different brews, and I seriously loved them all! We brought our whole crew, little people and all, and had a great time… we’re definitely looking forward to future brewery hangouts! Super excited for these guys! You can pick up some of their beer at Beer Girl in the near future, so no need to fret! You too can drink a cold Arches brew. (-whew!-)
What are you guys itching to get into this summer? Any adventures we need to add to our list??
Until next time,
