Friend Makin' Monday



It is time for Friend Makin' Monday, head on over to Kasey's to join in the fun, and link up! I haven't joined in for FMM for sooo long, and feel so out of the loop, but today I am forcing myself to be on the computer a little, and get visiting!

This week's task is to tell 10 things you love about summer!!!


I LOVE summer!!! I actually love all the seasons, but I am ready for the warmth. (Funny though it is chilly in my house right now and I'm sitting in long pants, socks, and a sweatshirt.)

1. I love grillin'! Mostly because Hunter Dan does it, and it makes him feel cool to cook meat out on the grill.(love ya hon) I love that he takes care of it, and things always taste better when I don't have to cook them! YUM...bbq's!!!
2. The kids playing outside...love to hear their laughing and screaming when they are playing in the water, and having fun!

3. 4th of July...my Dad is the most patriotic guy I know, and my love for our country was installed in me by him! I love fireworks, so does Hunter Dan, especially the ones you aren't suppose to shoot off. Not that he does that or anything...

4. Camping for my family reunion. It's coming up....let's pray I feel better, the thought of the outhouses....


5. The smell... from the hot pavement, to the fresh cut grass, to the smell of dirt from working in the flowers.
6. Fresh fruit...one of the only things that have sounded good to me lately, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes...YUM!
7. Tomatoes, and corn on the cob from the garden. Can't wait for it to grow!!!

8. Love that you can be outside later, play, and just hangout...some of my favorite memories are from summer evenings growing up...EXCEPT for June bugs!(they fit right in there with big foot and the dark, except I HATE them more...oh how they terrified me as a kid, and truth be told they terrify me as an adult....o.k. they don't hurt you, but they stick on to you) I AM CRINGING!!!

9. Summer rain and thunderstorms...they are so amazing, and smell so good.

10. Just spending time with my kids and hubby, summer is just such a wonderful time of year!!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!!!

So THAT'S what a June Bug looks like. I've always heard of your fear of them, and never knew what they were!

Here's to LOTS of playing together this summer! Hurry and quit puking so we can party!

Your fears crack me up! I love June bugs, ok not so much when they land on me but I like watching them buzz around. Love Xazmins comment! Glad to see you back around!

Oh. My. Gosh. I hate JUNE BUGS!! Ew. It's the worst when they get caught up in your hair. Ugh!

Other than one little bit of nastiness, you've got a fine FMM post! Glad to see you back!

Yay for Summertime! I totally agree that food taste better when I don't have to cook! I don't think I've even seen a June Bug... but I'm definitely going to keep an eye out!!

Shawn said...

June bugs~ June Bugs~ June Bugs!

OH I'm about to cry! I remember praying that my Daddy would turn the front porch light out so I could get in the front door without having to run through them as they swarmed the light! They would fly past my head and the sound of their wings near my ear....I AM gonna cry! Gee thanks for the memory!

Feeling better?

Anissa said...

I love summer thunderstorms and hanging in the pool.
Loved your list! TFS

Rhonda said...

That's a June bug?? Scary looking! I have to say I love June bugs but they do not look like that! The June bug I know is a cool metallic green color. We use to tie string on it's leg and watch it fly in circles growing up...okay my brother did it and I watched in amusement. Hmmm??

Loved your list girl! Hope you feel great soon! Thinking about ya!

Hi Tanielle!

What a good list! I love all of those too. I have never heard of June bugs before. They don't look very fun though.

I hope you are feeling well with your pregnancy.

XOXO
