Five Favorites: Summer Edition

Well now that summer has officially began for me I find it fitting that this five favorites be all about my favorite parts of summer

1.  My best friends

One of us is going to grad school and a teaching job, another is getting married, as per usual heaven only ever knows what one is doing, and I am going back for one more year of undergrad.  Summer means spending as much time as possible with them, especially with the many different directions (literally different states) we will all be going in too soon. 

2.  Three of my favorite kiddos

I have a family who has three kids, two boys ages 4 and 2, and my Goddaughter, almost 6 months, who I visit almost everyday.  It is so important to me to spend as much time with them as possible to watch them grow up and help out their mom, one of my dearest friends, with an extra set of hands.  I am excited for trips to the playground, sprinkler park, Farmpark, and zoo.  

3.  Fresh fruits and veggies

Not only does my dad cultivate an overflowing garden but I supplement that with the Amish produce stand.  I am so excited for all the straight from the garden fruits and veggies I will be filling my belly with.  

4.  Tanning

The fact that I will  more than likely have a few skin cancer scares in my life hasn't fully hit me yet.    I love laying out in the sun and being a nice dark bronze all summer long.  My tanning buddy, the bride, and myself, the bridesmaid, have decided to make tanning pretty much a job this summer.

5.  Reading time

Ahh summer reading. Love not having to read dense heavy textbooks.  Please I welcome all recommendations.  Check out my 2013 reads to see what I have been reading lately.   

So what about a summer job?  The nanny job I talked about on Sunday hasn't gotten back to me yet so I am still hoping!

  1. I want to start my own garden so badly! I think I'll shoot for next spring! Love the books you are reading. Some of those are on my list right now. So many good books, so little time!
