Hello Summer!

June 09, 2013

Is it summer already?  The 90 degree weather and afternoon thunder storms in Florida have already declared it summer time. This will my first summer working full-time since I started teaching 6 years ago. I know some people think teachers get paid during the summer, but the reality is that you can get money taken out of your paycheck throughout the school year to last you through the summer. I used to tutor to supplement my summer check. I'm convinced that having summers off allows teachers to keep their sanity.

Even though I'm working a regular 9-5 job, I'm looking forward to the summer. My sister and nephews are coming down from North Carolina at the end of June and I can't wait! I really miss not having them in the same city.

                               My sister and awesome maid of honor. Seriously who else would eat Chick-Fil-A and drink champagne the morning of my wedding with me?

I have seen other bloggers make summer bucket lists so I'm going ahead and making one of my own.

1. Go to the beach at least once. Sad that despite living an hour away from the beach I don't always make it out there in the summer.  This should be easily accomplished when my sister comes down.

2. Convince my friend who owns a pool and lives 2 minutes away to let Ty and I use his pool. He is Ty's best friend so he is over our house a lot, we have decided that it entitles us to some pool time over summer. Just sayin'.

3. Get a new bathing suit.

4. Drink more wine. Cause why not? I really want one of these vino 2 go cups.

Happy summer!!


  1. I think I need to get a new bathing suit too, I love my suit but it does NOT dry so on vacations it's just wet the whole time. And I really dislike putting on a wet bathing suit.

    1. Target is my go to for bathing suits. I refuse to spend top dollar for a bathing suit. Wet bathing suits are the worst.

  2. I feel like this is a totally attainable summer bucket list! And one that screams summer. I, too, need a new suit. It's been five years and mine has saggy butt now. THE HORROR!
