#MSWBSTAYCATION IDEAS {Miss June, Staycation}

June 9, 2014

Another summer weekend has passed us! What did you do? Did you come up with any staycation plans or ideas for you and your family? I do believe if we don’t plan, it will pass us by and not nearly enough fun will be had! This weekend I opted for friend time and cheap movie outing staycation ideas. I invited a friend to stay the weekend with me and we saw The Fault in Our Stars (bring a box of tissue!) and Maleficent, both matinees and cheaper than full price! I also spent the whole week jotting down ideas that came to me for a summer staycation to-do list of sorts. Help us add to the! Take pictures of the ones you accomplish that are on this list or that you add to your personal. I think we should hastag our summer stacation project, don’t you?? #mswbstaycation
