Today, you’re probably cleaning up the mess from yesterday’s Fourth of July festivities and getting ready to wind down and rest up for Monday…but wait! There’s still the whole weekend to enjoy. We all love long weekends! They give us an opportunity to explore new places and try new things. Some people are hustling to pack their bags to travel while the rest of us are planning to stay home and spend it with family and friends. Staying at home doesn’t mean you have to just sit on the sofa all weekend — take a look at our top 5 pins this week for some fun solutions to your stay at home vacation.
You wanted to go camping this weekend, but all the campsites were crowded and buying all that camping gear can get a little pricey. No worries! Grab some old sheets and pillows to throw together this beautiful and cozy indoor tent. Make some s’mores, read a book, or just have a quaint little picnic. You can even put this together outside your house and stargaze with family and friends. What’s not to love about this? It’s cheap, fun, and a bathroom is only a few feet away!
Ahh, the ever classic wine and cheese party. Who doesn’t come flocking over when they hear “wine and cheese” party?! It’s free wine and delicious cheese! If you don’t feel like making a trip out of the house for dinner, invite your friends over to share some snacks and a simple glass of wine together. The best vacations are spent with amazing food and even more amazing company.
Rediscover your city, your town, or wherever it is you’re living. No matter how long or how short a period of time you’ve been there, there’s always something new to see and explore. Maybe you live in a place where tourists frequent the area but never really cared to figure where they’re going. Do a little Google search and find out why they’re traveling out to your part of town. You might be surprised at how much there is to know about the place you live!
It’s summer and the weather isn’t going to get any better than this. If you’re looking to watch a movie with family and friends, make it a little special and watch it outside in your yard. You don’t even need a projector. Just grab your laptop and cozy up with some blankets and pillows. Don’t forget the popcorn!
5. Spa Day
Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest things. The year is half-over and this is a great opportunity to wind down and relax. Grab some of your favorite spa kit items and treat yourself to a soothing spa day at home. Buy or make a bathtub caddy to place your favorite books, drinks and candles nearby while you soak in the good stuff.
