There's Something About Daisies

This skirt (or should I say skort, it totally has shorts built in) reminds me of the '90s and just makes me smile. It is so cute and just makes me feel like a little girl again. I can do so much in them because of those lovely shorts that are underneath! They remind me of when I would carelessly climb up trees, ride my bike for hours and hanging on the money bars at the playground. If I ever have a little girl I am totally putting her in skirts because they adorable but I will throw spandex shorts under them so she can be a wild and crazy kid while still looking cute.

Best Pants Ever! Part 2

I loved these pants. Remember the burgundy ones I wore about two weeks ago? Well I loved them so much I got them in the second color. I know I know, why do I need two pants that are essentially exactly the same? The fit and comfort of course! I also loved the colors and how I can wear this pair during summer and spring then wear the burgundy ones in the fall.

10 Things I Love About Summer

1. Being Tan
The perks of working at a pool is you get a nice and dark tan. This tan will last me all summer now. Plus my tan makes my pictures look better.

2. Lighter Hair Color
I don't ever dye my hair. One time I got highlights and it totally took the curl out of my locks. To get a lighter color now, I mix lemon juice and water in a spray bottle them just spritz a little in my hair when I am outside and I let the sun do the coloring.

3. Running Outside
I really enjoy running and over the winter I would run on a treadmill or use the elliptical. In the summer I love to running through the neighborhoods. I love to see the landscaping, the flowers and decorating of other houses and get ideas for my future home.

4. Grilling
Nothing smells like summer than BBQ. I love to grill everything. A little char on steak, veggies, heck even peaches is delicious.

5. Hanging Out By the Lake or Pool
I live in Michigan. Fresh water is all around. I love to hang by the water. I love to feel the breeze on my face when sitting on the beach or lounging poolside.

6. Driving my Convertible
I do have an amazing car. It is the best when it's a hot day and I get to go for a long drive.

7. Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
Fresh fruit at all meals of the day and crisp veggies that taste amazing with everything is a summer treat.

8. Cold Smoothies
I love a cold smoothie when I go to work at the pool. My favorite place to get smoothies is Tropical Smoothie Café.

9. Longer Days
Everyone needs more time to get done what needs to get done. I love summer time because the light stays longer meaning I can do more outside activities longer.

10. Bright Colors
I can't have a summer list without having color on my list. I love bright colors during summer time.

Summertime Sniffles

Last week I got a little cold. You know, it was like the winter cold that you get that's just annoying. So I was sneezing, blowing my nose and I was really tired. the weirdest thing though was I was really cold. Like even thought it was in the mid-seventies I was freezing, hence why I am wearing a sweater and jeans. I am feeling better now, if you were wondering, just the 5:30 AM shifts I am now working are already starting to catch up to me. Bring on the coffee!
