    Those are good ones! I cut out alcohol this summer to lose weight but usually I love a good mojito out on a patio or deck.


  • Mine are going to be similar.  If I could, I would just say camping, hiking, and biking repeatedly, but I will find more.
    1.  Good biking weather!
    2.  Good hiking weather!
    3.  Good camping weather!
    4.  My bunny can run around for longer outside and has more dandelion leaves to nibble on.  Also, fresh hay!
    5.  Eating supper outside on the patio.  It doesn't even have to be bbq.
    6.  All the awesome old cars coming out of garages and being driven around on nice days.  Hello 1969 Mustang Fastback!
    7.  Reading outside under a tree.
    8.  Being able to hang the laundry outside to dry instead of using the dryer.
    9.  Summer movies! 
    10.  My FI finally starts wearing less clothes.  The man has an amazing body, and he still wears a shirt to the beach - sigh. 

  • I love the reading outside one!  Good one!

    @Amapola14 - I LOVE fireworks! I can't believe I left that off my list. My birthday is July 3 and when I was little I was convinced my birthday was a 2 day celebration and the fireworks were for me lol.

    Also, fall is my absolute favorite season too! Summer is great but nothing beats fall :)

    How many summer classes are you taking?


  • @bethsmiles, dawwww, that is cute :) Yes, fireworks are awesome-sauce! I am really desperate to go to DC and see them there in the flesh (seems wrong not to since I live so close), but BF is literally terrified of big cities at night, so I'll have to round up a group of friends to go with me.

    I am taking a fundamentals of nursing class. It's an 8-credit class crammed into ten weeks, so I'm losing my mind trying to keep up with it. I am currently taking a study break from the paper I'm writing. I am doing OK with it so far, but I feel like I haven't had enough Coronas yet to keep going ;)

    @amapola14 - 8 credits in 10 weeks?! You are brave! I took a lot of summer classes for my undergrad but I tried to make sure they were easier so I didn't lose my mind over the summer.


  • @bethsmiles, thanks for the edification - most would just call me insane! It's an accelerated program, otherwise I wouldn't really need to take summer classes at all. I am just sick of holding myself back by being in school, so I'm more than happy to give up Summers 2013-14 to get my degree. It's probably not the healthiest way to think of it, but lately I feel like my going back to school is keeping me (and BF, to an extent) from getting on with our lives and doing the other things we want to do. =/ 

    But, I know this is the right career path for me, and I'll be done in 14 months. The independence and everything that goes with it will get here before I know it!

    @amapola14 - I totally know what you mean about school keeping you from getting on with your lives. BF and I feel the same way sometimes. It can be really frustrating!
