here we come, summer

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Well, hello long three day weekend ahead of me.

How did you come up so quickly? And, please don't go too quickly!

Ohhhh how I love Memorial day weekend....

Even as a kid it was awesome because it signified that school was almost out, not quite, but you only had a few short weeks to endure and then school is out for the summer. For good.

Remember how longgggggggggggggg summers used to feel when you were a kid? I can only imagine how dramatic I was when I got bored with summer after being out for a week even though it felt like 2 months- I probably drove my mother insane with my incessant questioning and constant need to be doing some type of activity. What I would do now for a whole summer off! As a kid, I remember most of my summers at the pool, riding bikes and catching fireflies. Sounds pretty amazing to me.....

Fast forward to college summers which were equally amazing and still so stress-free with the only real hurdle was to get out early in enough time to get ready and go out with your friends. Summer nights at Shooter's were the best - what fun memories.

Funny how not so long ago, I was looking forward to the entire summer and now I crave for a good three-day weekend filled with red, white and blue desserts, fresh fruit salads, burnt hot dogs, endless glasses of homemade margaritas and even a fire to end the evening.

So, this Memorial Day I'm looking forward to sweating a lot and laying out at a pool with a few girlfriends, catching up on my magazines and talking all about my favorite new couple from 50 Shades of Grey, grilling out with friends and possibly incorporating a slip and slide into the action, maybe a Put-In-Bay trip and a visit to hang with my family for a few hours and maybe even catch my mom's favorite parade in my hometown.

Ahh.... memorial day weekend.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

Memorial Day is ALWAYS one of my very favorite holidays b/c my b-day is the 31st! It all becomes a giant b-day bash that I usually drag out into a month long celebration. I'm taking tomorrow off too so I'll have an extra day of fun. Have a great weekend! I might have to bust out the slip 'n slide...

memorial day weekend, is always our polish side of the families reunion. I usually love this, however akward, since my dad (the pole) in the family has been gone 10 yrs now, and we don't talk to the fam but once a year. But you cannot, ever, beat the food you eat at a polish family reunion! It's like the only time I have authentic and delicious foods!

I'm not happy that it will be 94 the day of our reunion though. This may inhibit me to staying home in the A/C!!
