End of Summer To-do List

Summer is coming to a sad end but there is still time to cross off some of those “must-do-in-the-summer” activities!

1. Ride a bike. You’ve been doing it since you were little, hop back on & give your legs a workout.

2. Picnic in the park. It’s fun. It’s free. Make a date out of it!

3. Take a day trip to the beach. This is self explanatory.

4. Check out a festival. A carnival maybe? Or even just a street fair

5. Read a book. Sit down & yes, actually read.

6. Buy a planner. Once the feeling of a relaxing summer wears off, planning. planning. planning. You’ll need a cute notebook for that.

Summer is winding down, make the most of it!

Shark Bait

As one of the best weeks out of the year premiered last night, Shark Week, & it did not disappoint. With the phenomenon of a week of terrifying sharks, last night on the Discovery channel, the Wrath of the Submarine had us on the edge of our seats! This very large 30 foot long shark is nicknamed the Submarine. Submarine was first discovered in 1970 off the coast of South Africa. Although there have been several sightings & attacks of Submarine, biologists still raise the question as to if Submarine is a real, mean machine, or a myth.

Catch all the exciting shows as #sharkweek continues all this week starting at 9/8c every night!
