I have been posting about summer coming soon and grilling and summer fun for a few months now! I am READY! Especially since we have a ‘Kick off Summer’ BBQ planned, some grilling fun on Memorial Day, a quadruple birthday party in July, a Father’s Day party and a number of other events that will have us grilling and entertaining almost the entire summer!

Inspired by the very informative Grilling Is Happiness website, I decided I needed to spruce up my patio and grill so that we can impress during all of our events! One of my favorite places to shop for Outdoor Living items is Sears! Especially now that we are participants in the Shop Your Way Rewards program!

Through the Shop Your Way site, I clicked on my local Sears website and did some more online shopping. I’d click an item and add it to my wish list so I could pull it up at the store and get exactly what I wanted! I also found great sale items (Memorial Day Sale going on NOW!) and more  information on the rewards program!

Armed with my Sears App and my ShopYourWayRewards App, I loaded up my whole family and headed to the store!

We browsed the tables and chairs and gazebos mentally decorating our yard, looked at countless grills noting features we would love in our next one and noted the yard art that we would like to save our points and purchase!

But I was on a mission too. We were in desperate need of some more grill utensils and some fun, party atmosphere solar light products. Plus, we wanted to get some games and things that our guests could do while at one of our parties!

We found an abundance of creative and pretty solar light art and each girls got to pick one out. To that I added some beautiful color changing butterfly lights! My husband found some really great Craftsman grill utensils and I found the grill meat thermometer that I needed to get my grilled good cooked perfectly!

We also found some outdoor games and my husband picked up more darts for out board! We were all set!

As we checked out we talked to the cashier about Shop Your Way Rewards and shopping at Sears.com. He whipped out his company provided iPad and showed us even more neat things that can be done with the app. He even shared the fact that the app allows the store to email members products and comparisons right to their email. Cut your shopping down even more by having a store employee email you exactly what that store has! Very cool as it saves me time online and gas driving from store to store!

We got our loot home and put them out on the patio! We watched as the lights changed and looked so pretty and our little solar animals lit up at night. My husband “practiced” his grilling for a party coming up with his new tools (and it was a yummy chicken dinner too!) and we set up the games to try them out!

I think we are now ready now that #SearsPatio has helped us spruce up for our parties this summer! And we have points to help us get something else we need when we need it!
