10 Awesome Summer Movies

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own.  Mid-July. Hot. Humid.  Miserable. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate summer weather? I’m sure I have. Thank goodness for Willis Carrier, who invented air-conditioning in 1902.

Summer To-Do List

Summer is almost here! Normally, I dread summer. It is my least favorite season, mainly because I get hot easily and hate heat. (How I survived living in Florida for seven years straight is beyond me.) However, this year, with our baby girl, Sweet Pea, due in early June, I’m looking forward to the start of summer.  One trend I see a lot on Pinterest is the seasonal bucket list.
