We heart summer

Ahhhh, we all love summer around here. The hotter the better. It's time to play outside all day, break out the flip flops (or "fip fops," as Ro and Ree call them), eat casual dinners at the pool, revel in all the awesome fresh summer fruit, and stay up late. It's summertime! These flip flops, by the way, are my Yellow Box flip flops. TubaDad and the girls gave me a couple of pairs for Mother's Day and they are my new favorite summer things. Have you tried these shoes?! Oh man, they are so comfortable I want to swoon. After wearing these I will never be able to go back to drugstore flip flops again, which makes my inner cheapie girl quite sad. But who cares about that, my feet are so freakin' happy! I have the crankiest, blisteriest, babyest feet around, and I wear these all day and even go on long walks in them, without a single problem. I give these shoes 10 toes up. Oh sheesh, now I've blathered on and on about flip flops, when what I really wanted to ask was: What's your favorite summer thing?

  2. There's a lot of things I don't like about summer, mostly the heat which reaches 100 here (California's Central Valley) in May and lasts into September.

    Having said that, I think the best part of Summer is vacations, traveling, and visiting with friends and family.

  7. Your fwip fwops are stinkin' adorable!!! I have short toes and have trouble with that piece between the toes - it just wears my skin right off. Mind you those are the el cheapo ones I am talking about. Not sure I want to invest in the expensive ones. I love the way they look though!

    My favorite summer thing ... hmmm ... being outside and in the pool (bringing me to my least favorite thing - swim suits- akkkk!!!). Us Canadians get a really short summer so we enjoy the heck out of it. It was only about 60 degrees today ... boo!!!

  11. Ooo...can we buy this kind of flip fops near your place? Can you believe that I've never owned a pair of ff's in my entire life?? Something drastically wrong with that!! Will need to fix that in say...2 weeks? Cute toes too!

    My favourite thing about summer? The break from teaching in the evenings so not rushing home from work and, summer clothes without wearing boots, socks, coats, hats, mitts...yah, you get the picture!

    See you SOON!

  12. Being that we live in Florida, Summer is pretty much year around but the thing I like best is that I can use my pool. Our pool is not heated and even in South Florida an unheated pool is too cold during the winter. We are back in it now and will be till October.

  16. We live in a court with 18 kids - on summer nights, it is so much fun to sit and watch them run & play - freedom! Sometimes we sit on our neighbors porch, glass of wine in hand, and just laugh . . . nice.

  17. You know...I think I like the flip flop thing too! I also think of vacations, camping and Farmers markets!

  18. Living in Canada, I think my favourite thing is not having to deal with the mittens, hats, snowsuits, and boots every day. I also like flip flops (yours are super-cute!) and sandals, which means NO SOCKS for me to wash and sort! With 4 kids, socks are the bane of my existence. lol

  25. M3, you have a great manicure. I can't see my toes anymore. LOL!

    The best part of summer to me is the sun, grilling, spending time with my loved ones in the gardens. Oh, and air-conditioning. :-)

  27. Oooooh, I've heard great things about those, but don't have any yet. Maybe I should branch out from my favorite Target ones and get a pair?
