Summer Lovin'

It is definitely Monday around here! All three of my children were up during the night for one reason or another so I am not running on all cylinders today.

But I am going to try to be optimistic because, hey it's a beautiful SUMMER day outside and Kasey, the awesome host of wants to know what makes summer so great. So here are my top 10 favorite things about summer:

  1. Pedicures - I actually paint my toenails year round, but during the summer I get to show them off!

  2. Strappy sandals and flip flops - I love shoes anyways, but strappy shoes are my favorites!!

  3. Sundresses - I love wearing dresses during the summer. It is so stinkin hot where I live so I like as little fabric actually touching my skin as possible! (I am bummed that breastfeeding is majorly limiting my dress wearing capabilities this year!)

  4. the Lake! - Even though I live 45 minutes from the beach, I am just not a beach person. I grew up in Alabama near Lake Martin and I really miss it.

  5. the Fourth of July - fireworks, cook outs, parades...I love it all!

  6. Summer produce - watermelon, tomatoes, squash, berries, corn on the cob. Yummy! It's even better when purchased off the back of a truck on the side of the road!

  7. Grilling out - Something else we actually do all year long, but summertime and grilling go hand in hand!

  8. Vacation - enough said!

  9. My birthday - I love my birthday! I usually try to celebrate it for at least a week! This summer I will be turning 24...for the fifth time!

  10. Air Conditioning - I do not like the heat and I hate to sweat so to me, there is nothing quite so wonderful than coming inside to a cold house!

What are your favorite things about summer? Head over to All That is Good and make a few new friends today!

I know what you mean about dresses...they are so fun! I miss all my sundresses I couldn't wear last year either!
Your anti-beachness cracks me up...and totally baffles me!

I feel the same way about my cute toes. I get pedicures every week, regardless of weather. But it's fun to see our well groomed feet is super cute shoes. :)

And I love A/C too though we still don't need to turn it on in NY. hehe
