Here are some things I loved about my favorite summer month!
My brother/sister-in-law, my sister/brother-in-law and I took my six nephews to Disneyland for a weekend. My parents even flew in for the day to surprise us and we had an amazing time! I may be 28 but I am still obsessed with all things Disney. I’ve been there so many times but it never gets old. Plus the Disney empire just blows my mind. They think of everything.
Color, Color, Color
I’m totally obsessed with the colored skinny jean situation going on lately. I’m really not one to follow trends too much but I am really addicted to purple, green, turquoise, red, pink (and the list goes on and on) pants. Oh, and shorts. I seriously hope the love for colored pants endures for a while because my dresser drawers look like a rainbow right now!
Sit ‘n Floats
If you like lazy pool days, you need these. That’s all you need to know. Actually, no it’s not – you need to buy an air pump. These are a bitch to blow up yourself.
I had some family from France come in town last week to visit but I am so so self conscious of my accent that I still pretty much refuse to speak it in front of them. So since I usually just read/write French but rarely have the opportunity to work on my accent, I downloaded a “Learning French” audiobook off iTunes to use in my car (or when I’m really bored at work). It actually has been a good refresher and I
think hope it is making me sound more like a French person, and less like a valley girl speaking French!
Girls Nights Out
So I’ve obviously always loved a good girls night out, but we hadn’t had one in a while and it just felt so good to have everyone together to catch up and have a fun night up where we can get a little fancy. I’m very lucky to have these girls in my life.
Cornish Pasty Co.
I’m not sure how I have never tried this place out before, especially since I work right down the street, but this place is amazing! They have a good beer slection and a ton of vegetarian options which is always a recipe for success in my world. I had the Veggie Rosemary Chicken – highly recommended!
I am a James Patterson freak. Have literally read every book he’s written. Some have been disappointing me lately, but this one was one of his best in years (in my opinion) and one of the best books I’ve read in a while. So if you need a good laying-out-by-the-pool book, pick this one up for sure!
Now on to August. Bring it on!
