Hello, hello and Happy Friday! I am extra excited for the weekend because I am going on a girls weekend away! Does it get much better? 4 friends and I are leaving 14 kids (!) behind with dads and grandparents and heading for the Saco River in New Hampshire.
This Float Trip has become an annual event and it couldn’t be more fun. We rent tubes, tie them all up together and then just float down the river without a care in the world. No kids, no phones, lots of laughs and hopefully no rain…the forecast doesn’t look so hot right now. Keep your fingers crossed for us…though we’ll have fun no matter what!
So this week, I’m giving you a little insight on how I get ready for the float trip. Being a girl who loves to cook, I charge myself with bringing some of the food for the weekend. We need to make sure we have a good balance between meals and cocktails!
checkOUT: Lemon Blueberry Bread
We try to keep things as simple as possible on Float Trip weekend. I like to bring breads we can eat for breakfast with our coffee (and mimosas) before heading out on the river. I love this Lemon Blueberry Bread…simple and delicious. Get the recipe from Julia at Julia’s Album!
checkOUT: Zucchini Bread
checkOUT: Baked Ziti
We have inflatable coolers that we pack with sandwiches and drinks and snacks to take on the river with us, so that covers the afternoon. But after spending the day floating, the last thing we want to do is prepare a meal, or rush around trying to get ready to go out. So instead, I planned ahead with a freezer meal! I’ll pull this Baked Ziti from Six Sisters Stuff out to defrost all day and then pop it right into the oven when we get back home. Heat and Eat!
checkOUT: Grapefruit Mimosas
Remember when I mentioned Mimosas before? I know you do, because how could you forget about the Mimosas? Surely, they are one of the most important requirements of a moms-only weekend! Though the traditional ones are always delicious, I’m looking forward to trying these Grapefruit Mimosas from The Brewer and the The Baker. They look out of this world!
checkOUT: Intex Inflatable Cooler
Have I inspired you to plan your own Float Trip weekend? If so, make sure you order one or two of these Intex Inflatable Coolers first. These are an absolute necessity! Once you fill the cooler with some snacks, sandwiches, and drinks and tie it up to your raft, all that’s left to do is sit back, relax and float! Heaven…
