So today was a warm 94 degrees, which made it feel all to much like summer was already here at the beginning of May! So in honor of the summer days to come I am listing off some of my favorite Summer things. As usual these are in no particular order:)
1)Sprinkler/Pool time for my kids! I love being able to shove my guys in the backyard in swimsuits with Popsicles and let them run off their energy!
2)Summer Fruits and Veggies:) I love how fresh fruits and veggies are so much more affordable and plentiful this time of year. We have already been enjoying blackberries, strawberries, watermelon and asparagus on a daily basis! Can't wait for corn, cucumbers and even "tomuckoes" to come in season. I am especially impatient for some of my garden to harvest!
3)I am totally in love with the scent Summer Orchard at Bath&Body Works. It smells so fresh, yet isn't to heavy. I have been burning either my candle or the oil almost everyday.
4)I probably don't even need to mention my forever continuing obsession with flops, but I can't help it. I cover my feet up as few months of the year as possible and then bask in the glory of painted toenails and flip-flops all the rest of the year! As you can see from my flip flop holder I cleaned house a little in order to make room for the new ones I am sure to find and fall in love with this summer:)
5)Grilling!!! I have been making my husband grill about every other day here lately. I love how it feels like I didn't have to "cook" when all I do is throw together a fresh side dish and prepare a big pitcher of iced tea. We have grilled everything here lately except fish. I think we are going to tackle that one though before the summer is over. One of my very favorites is just good ole burgers. Wish I had a pic of the tasty ones Steve made the other day, but didn't think of it at the time.
Well ladies that wraps it up for today. Jot a short comment letting me know what your favorite thing about summer is! P.S. Had to include a close up of the cute garden markers my kids decorated for our little garden. Thought they did such a good job with their veggies:)
