The Best of Summer

So now that we are past Memorial Day..it’s pretty much the start of summer, am I right?? πŸ™‚ At least, I know I’m excited to get it started!

Here are a few of my Favorite Things about the Summer Time:

1. Hot Weather

I totally love hot weather!! I hate to be cold and walking outside without a jacket or long sleeves or something is a great feeling! I sweat all the time so I don’t even care about being gross! I really hate having to think about wearing layers and bringing things with me. I’m like to keep things as low maintenance as possible!

hot hot hot

2. Exercising Outside- All. The. Time.

If I didn’t live in Pennsylvania for the winter, I’m not sure I would be crazy about a gym membership. I have some equipment at home like dumbbells and kettle bells which I use for circuits I make up on my own and I love to do it in my garage. I also hate treadmills, so running and biking outside always keeps me more interested and I definitely end up doing more. There’s something about a treadmill that just makes me hate it so much.

3. Baseball games!

I’m a big fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates and loveee going to PNC park. It really is one of my favorite places in the world!

4. Outdoor Concerts

I have been to at least one concert for the last few summers and I’m planning on more! Normally I go see Dave Matthews Band cause they play close to me, but I’m hoping for Drew to take me to a country concert (HINT, HINT).

5. The BEACH

Need I say more really?? I love my week of vacation at Avalon/Stone Harbor Beach in New Jersey. It’s such a cute place. We are going in exactly a month, actually! weeeeee!

Unfortunately I won’t be in Key West, FL 😦 but oh well!

6. Outdoor BBQ’s and Picnics

Hanging out with good friends, grilled food, and ice cold beers…yum! Nothing much better than that!

7. Ice Cream/Fro Yo

Come on, we all know it tastes better in the summer time!

8. Refreshing frozen concoctions πŸ˜‰

9. Sundresses

Such a simple and easy way to get dressed.

never mind what i”m doing here…

10. Great tan lines

No worries, i wear my SPF everyday, but hey I still have weird sock/flip flop tan lines, and not to mention a shorts line also..and normally a racer back line on my back. I don’t care. Love it!

So there are my 10 favorite things about summer! Tell me some of your favorites! πŸ™‚ Anyone have any big vacation plans this year?

If you haven’t entered my Sweat Pink lace give away yet, you still have time! Go to the last post and answer the question! I’ll announce later today!

Memorial Day Weekend Recap and First Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend! I had a couple days of work but a couple days to relax and take advantage of the good (but sticky hot) weather.

Saturday, I had the day off but woke up early to try and get a run in because of this weather that was just ridiculously sticky and hot! I meant to run 4 miles, but ended it at 3.4 because theΒ heat was really getting to me. I felt a little sick, and figured it was just better to listen to my body and walk it the rest of the way in. I was definitely not upset by this decision- trust me. As soon as I got home and had some water, I felt much better!

Saturday night, my family and I decided to try and new restaurant in our town that everyone has been raving about. It’s called C & D Grill and it was delicious! Sort of expensive entree wise but was worth it. My mom and I both got the crab cakes! yum! if those are ever on the menu I rarely pass them up. My entree came with mashed potatoes and a house salad (wish i would have taken a picture) with an Italian style dressing that they make of their own.

Yum! and dessert later that night was frozen yogurt at a new place that just opened up by me! Fro Yo only a couple miles away!? this could be bad.

Sunday I woke up early to play golf with my parents! Since I work at the golf course and my dad does also on weekends we play FREE GOLF! if you know anything about golf you know that it’s not cheap so it’s awesome that our family can play for free with us.

I actually played fairly well for my first time playing again this summer. To me golf and field hockey are similar so it comes pretty naturally to me.

The course we play it is absolutely beautiful! I love this whole cause it has the water right by it. Lots of wild life! Geese, turtles… at least it’s not FL with GATORS!

Yesterday on Memorial Day, my mom and I set out to bike on our local Rail Trail and we ended up doing a good 15-16 miles! (My bike computer wasn’t working very well so I’m not sure the exact milage. It was really fun and relaxing. For as hot as it was yesterday this path is mostly shaded by trees which is really nice.

In the middle we stopped at a tiny bike/ice cream and candy shop (now if I ever own a shop- that would be the combo I would have, lol..bikes and ice cream! what could be better!) When we were in there we decided to try Honey Stinger!

The waffle was absolutely delicious. The guys in the shop told me I would love it and they were right! My mom tried the pink lemonade honey stinger chews and they were also really good!

Once we were fueled up we biked back to the car and drove home- we were exhausted for sure!

Looking over the handlebars!

Another fun thing that happened this weekend was that I got my Sweat Pink Swag from FitApproach!
