- Drink lemonade
- Drink strawberry lemonade
- Drink in general
- Fall asleep in the sun
- Repeat until Tuesday
Memorial Day is supposed to be about reserving a 24-hour block on the last Monday in May to remember those who have died for our country (not to be confused with Veteran’s Day when we remember those who have fought for our country). And, sure, we should use the allotted time to do that, but let’s be honest, when was the last time your three-day-weekend represented anything other than the unofficial start of summer?
Unlike other three-day-weekends where nothing happens besides sleeping in (yeah, I’m looking at you President’s Day), Memorial Day is bursting with American tradition – most of which begin and end at cookouts.
Not sure what’s on your list for the weekend, but as you can see I have a tight schedule as is and I doubt I’ll be able to squeeze in any time for something as silly as shopping but that’s just me.
Memorial Day is a good excuse to have a sale, but who in their right mind would pull themselves away from the pool long enough to put closed-toed shoes on let alone get fully dressed and go shopping? Fools that’s who.
Thankfully, we live in the future and we can shop anywhere in the world from the comfort of the chaise lounge.
Or if you hate that chaise lounge, may we recommend –
Our Moda Chair is entirely made out of redwood and slopes back enough to ensure not only comfort, but that you’re drenched in sunshine until one annoying cloud gets in the way of your bliss.
It takes more than just a slab of raw beef and a grill to make a for a good barbecue. This may sound like advice coming from a guy who writes an interior design blog, but ambience plays just important a role as charcoal and fire.
I’ve had cookouts in unkempt backyards with rusted patio furniture and I can say from experience it’s awful. Anyone who says all you need for memorable cookout is a great burger recipe and the company of close friends is either an idiot or a liar who’s never had to pick paint chips out of their potato salad.
Will you be enjoying your burgers on the side of a cliff or in the tides of a Southern California beach? Not unless you’re taking a lunch break from a photoshoot for your blog, but the sentiment shouldn’t be lost.
An outdoor table should be clean and able to withstand spills. And try to stay away from metal. Why? Because metal get’s hot, duh. Try to rest your arms on a metal table that’s been baking in the Summer sun for three hours and you’ll understand what I mean.
And whether it’s Memorial Day or not, I truly couldn’t recommend these Bungalow Chairs more for relaxing in your backyard, front yard, patio, pool deck, whatever you may want. You’ll never be more comfortable.
