ABQ Mom’s Guide to July


guide to july

Um, excuse me but how is it already half-way through the summer? We may not know what the next couple of months are going to bring, but we do know that the sun is still shining and the kids are still… looking for things to do. We have a list of activities going on around and online in Albuquerque this month. Read more below!

Thank you to Blake’s Lotaburger for bringing us this guide.

Have you tried their new chicken sandwiches yet? They both feature two lightly breaded, high-quality chicken tenderloins on a gourmet bun.

The Blake’s Chicken Sandwich has pickles and Blake’s sauce, a downright delicious proprietary sauce infused with Blake’s own Hatch green chile.

The Ranch Chicken Sandwich is a great option for people who don’t like anything spicy. It has pickled onions and ranch dressing.

Now you have one meal planned for the week!

July 3 :: Compliment Your Mirror Day

And you know who’s in that mirror? YOU, pretty mama, that’s who. Now get to complimentin’.

July 5 :: National Bikini Day

Ok, so remember the other day…when you were complimenting yourself? Take that energy, put that bikini on, and love it. That mama body is beautiful and perfect in every way. Get some inspiration from some of our contributors.

July 10 :: Teddy Bear Picnic Day

Because Teddy Bears need fun in the sun too. Pick your bears, pick your snacks, lay out a fuzzy blanket, and have a blast. Bonus points if you make these bear ears to match your bear’s.

July 14 :: National Hot Dog Day

A summer staple. Grill up your own or head over to a local fav, Urban Hot Dog Co. for one of their cool concoctions.

July 19 :: National Ice Cream Day

Thankfully there’s a whole bunch of options here in the ABQ, check out last year’s ice cream guide here.

July 22 :: Hammock Day

I’m just going to tell you all that I got a hammock and it changed my life. Lying outside, a cold drink, a good book. YES PLEASE. 

July 24 :: Cousins Day

Get all the cousins together, grab the grandparents, and all of a sudden Cousins Day becomes parents fun day!

Ok, Ok, maybe put yourself IN your pants and take a family walk.
