Summer + Weekend = Happiness

Yesterday was the first official day of summer... {ahhhh!!}
...and I couldn't be more excited [obviously]!! Summer is one of my favorite seasons (right behind fall) and their are so many reasons why!

Time to break out the straw fedoras, breezy racerback tanks, strapless sundresses, and cute sandals! I have SO many yummy things that I want to make just waiting for me to try them out on my Pinterest boards! I am craving tons of refreshing fruit, grilled lean meat, and in season veggies.

It's so much easier to eat clean and stay healthy in the summertime, don't you think?! With all of the in season foods and outdoorsy activities? My goodness, I love summer.

.:: Looking Forward To ::.

lounging by the pool + sunshine + tasty smoothie recipes + sunset at 9:30
homemade ice cream + going on bike rides  + snow cone runs
sporting games + jean shorts +amazing summer movies 
 4th of July wknd + dog park + early morning walks
picnic date nights + barbecues with friends
iced coffee + tan lines + our madison trip
cute sunglasses + star gazing
country music


Well, I'm looking forward to the upcoming weekend at home. Even though I will be missing my favorite buddy while he's in Canada on a business trip, I have lots of fun summery things planned. Friday night fondue and martini party with the girls to start the weekend off right!

Saturday morning Zumba, lounging by the pool while reading my new book, theater in the park with friends (Legally Blonde the musical!), church on Sunday, probably more pool time, and then catching up on some baking and DVR time! And perhaps I may finally take myself to see this incredible documnetary?!

What is your summery weekend outlook, loves?
