Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! Whether you’re away for the full three days or just relaxing at home, everyone can agree on one thing when it comes to MDW: Summer is right around the corner! And, if you’re anything like us, you’re probably already thinking of ways to make your summer vacation the most epic season of all time. But, let’s face it — chances are that’s not going to happen.

There’s nothing wrong with having lofty goals as long as you’re willing to accept the fact that your super-crazy vacay might just turn into three months of being kinda, well, blah. Listen people, we say embrace it! There’s nothing too wrong with binging on Netflix all day, right? Right…
