Friend Makin' Mondays ~ Ten Things I Love About Summer!

This week for Friend Makin’ Monday, we’re sharing ten things we love about summer. Join in the fun by visiting Kasey’s blog. Here, in no particular order, are my ten things!

1. Sundresses. I absolutely love adorable sundresses. I try to add a few new ones to my collection each year.

2. Hiking almost every weekend. Nate turned me onto hiking last year, and I really love being out in the woods, enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and getting in a great workout all at the same time.

3. Hearing the popsicle man’s truck. It makes me feel like a kid again!

4. Long days! It is so nice to get off from work at 4 and know that I have at least five hours of sunlight to enjoy.

5. Flip~flops. I know they’re horrible for my feet but they just scream “Summer!” to me. It wouldn’t be summer without them!

6. BBQ’s with the family. Who doesn’t love meat cooked on the grill, getting corn from corn on the cob stuck in their teeth, and spending time with loved ones?!?

7. A break from all my favorite T.V. shows. Sometimes they seem to dominate my life during the “school” year. {I am a bit of a T.V. junkie.} It’s nice to have a few months without them {and a few months to wonder what’s going to happen to all the characters I love when the new season starts!}.

8. Laying out in the sun. I have to be really careful out in the sun because I’m really pale, but I do love spending time sunbathing {covered in SPF 50, of course!}.

9. Time off from work. I usually take a week off work sometime during the summer, and it’s so nice to get away.

10. Sleeping with the window open and hearing the frogs and crickets as I’m falling asleep.

Happy Monday!

I'm with you about TV because while I love it, it does tend to take over at time. Great list. Enjoy your summer.

Hey Heather,
Ohh the ice cream truck...yes fond memories of going to my cousin's house!

We slept with the windows up last night! I love the frogs and crickets too!

When I get thin I am so wearing sun dresses!!

Have a wonderful day!

Ahhhh, the ice cream truck. It just makes me sad when I hear it now.....being lactose intolerant, we no longer get to enjoy the deliciousness that is ice cream from the truck!
