Here are a few of my favorite summertime things...
Aveno Sunblock - this stuff is unlike any other sunscreen I've ever used. It's not greasy, it smells nice and it feels even better. It costs a little more, but it's worth it.
Fat Boy Jr. Ice Cream Sandwiches - These little babies are about half the size of a regular ice cream sandwich (which is plenty) and they only have 120 calories per sandwich. Score! That means I can eat one, get my chocolate AND my ice cream fix, and not worry about my ass getting any bigger. The size is great for the kids, too!
Sam Adams Light - This is the best light beer on the market, people. It doesn't taste like the typical Coors light or ...(cringe) Bud light. Sam Adams light beer has flavor....and it's good. After all, would it really be summer without a beer? Um, no. Not in my world.
Long, flowy dresses - Maybe it's the hippie in me. Maybe it's that these dresses hide the baby weight I've gained that wont seem to go away. Maybe it's because they're easy maintenance. Whatever! I love them. I want more. One of every color, and one of every style, please. Old Navy has some cute ones out right now!
The One-Piece - Did you hear the one piece bathing suit is back? Well, it is! Hallelujah. This is the first time in my life that I've felt more comfortable in a one piece than a two piece, but hey, if the one piece wants to come back into style when I like it, then cool.
Watermelon - I have a secret obsession with watermelon. I can eat it like a 400 pound black woman. Just ask my husband. No offence to 400 pound black women....if you know any, tell then to call me. I'll invite them over and we can gorge on watermelon together. I can eat half of a large watermelon in one sitting. I think my husband's reaction the first time he saw me do it was something like "holy shit, what's wrong with you?"
Dude. I like watermelon. So sue me.
Usually I eat it twice a day- for breakfast and for dessert. It has to be the seedless kind too. Me no likes seeds.
Pool Floaties - I was telling a bloggy friend today that I heart floaties. They make my job as pool mom SO much easier. God bless floaties and who ever invented them. They're cheap, they're easy and they keep my kid from going under. All is right with the world when I have floaties.
