It's summer break!

Either you're crying or rejoicing, right?  The kids are home, it's steamy outside and we are all going from here to there at warp speed.  Summer is busy!

It's totally contradictory.....we want to relax, to go on vacation, to unwind now that school is out and to spend most of our time outside.

In reality we often spread ourselves too thin by overscheduling and planning TOO many things to do.  So basically we need help.  We need products and gadgets to get us those these three crazy, busy months.  I went ahead and picked some of my favorites for you, my dear readers {a few of which I have!} and put them all together in this nice, fancy blog post.

You're welcome.

But seriously, you people do ask what I use!  So it's fun to share my favorites {I don't find these posts hard to write}.  So let's dig in and take a look at what you NEED this summer.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've been searching for a good beach and pool tote.  Hauling around four towels, four sets of clothes, sunscreen, water bottles and snacks can be a haul.  This Eastsport Mest Tote Beach Bag fits it all!

If you're American, you're grilling this summer.  Whether it's burgers or steaks or a plate full of marinated veggies, we like to cook our food outside!  But unfortunately, grills get MESSY and they need to be cleaned.  This Kona Grill Brush and Scraper is stainless steel and can be used on any type of grill.  A great Father's Day gift!

I don't know about you, but I drink a TON of more water when it's going through a fun straw.  I'm not sure why, but I do.  These Stainless Steel Metal Straws curb your carbon footprint, have soft silicon tips and come with a cleaning brush.  No need to buy a box of plastic straws anymore!

Have kids under the age of 4?  These indoor/outdoor Baby Delight Go With Me Chairs are awesome!  I very much wish I would have discovered these two years ago.  Perfect for outdoor ball games, picnics, beach outings and more.  Kids stay secure and comfortable and give you peace of mind when they need to stay put.

I love a great, flowy maxi dress in the summer, whether that be for church, a party or just running errands.  This Women's Maxi Floral Dress is sitting in my shopping cart RIGHT NOW.  This version comes in so many prints and colors, plus a version with sleeves!

Who wants to heat up their kitchen this summer?  Not me!  I've been using this exact Instant Pot for a few months now and I'm loving it.  I've done soups, mashed potatoes, boiled eggs, made pasta dishes and so much more.  You need this in your kitchen!  Great to prep and make quick meals during everyone's busy summer.

Hey beach goers!  These Beach Sand Coasters are great for kid's drinks and even better for adult drinks at parties.  No spillage, plus they can be used for snack cups too.  Not a beach goer?  They sit well in grassy areas too.

Our worst fear when trying to protect our phone during the summer is accidentally dropping it in the pool or lake.  Phones are expensive!  These Waterproof Phone Cases protect iPhone and Galaxy versions and are great for when you're swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing and more.

Let's face it, summer isn't all sunshine and rainbows.  Guess what, it's rains!  And those darn little munchkins don't always want to stay inside on gloomy days.  My three kids each have a pair of boots that are dedicated for messy play or outside chores.  These Kamik Stomp Boots can stay outside and easily get hosed off when dirty!

Coolers are essential for summer.  I carry a similar one to all our kid's games and it's a lifesaver.  It holds all sandwiches, snacks and drinks and is easy to carry with long shoulder straps.  This large soft insulated tote is great to have on hand for any summer activity.

I'm wondering if I'm still the only person using old-school ice cube trays these days, but guess what I am!  If you don't need them for ice, this 4-Pack Silicone Version, is great for freezing herbs in the summer or even fresh berries to flavor your water.  Give it a try!

If you get the joy of seeing me this summer I'm most likely be in a tank of some sort.  In fact, people will also give me crap, "do you wear anything else?"  I love a good, flowy tank, whether to wear casual or to dress it up.  This Women's Casual Button Decor Flowy Tank comes in four cute colors!
