Summer Favorites

I’m looking forward to being able to post more in the near future. I work full-time as an editor, and my job was in jeopardy until earlier this month. I was really stressed out for a couple of months and not really in the mood to tackle house and organization projects. I’ll be employed for at least another year, so I can relax a little bit. My 9-year-old daughter was also diagnosed with mono in May, so I was dealing with that too. But, all is well now, so I can move on to the fun stuff!

I am normally NOT a fan of summer at all. I hate the heat and humidity. Living in the Southeast, we can’t get away from it! This year, though, I’m trying to make the best of it and enjoy the things that I DO love about this time of year. Here are some of them…

This is my favorite summer scent, and unfortunately, it is not made as a perfume, so I have to settle for the body spray. I wear a pretty heavy scent in the winter, so I like switching to something lighter and sweeter for summer. It’s the white tea and ginger scent from Bath & Body Works.

These BPA free bottles are great for keeping water ready at hand. I love the container that keeps them together and organized in my fridge. I just pull out a bottle and go. I got them for $7.99 from Home Goods.

I discovered this refreshing drink recently at Home Goods—sparkling lemonade! It comes in several flavors, and I LOVE the bottles. I’m saving them. I’ve seen them at TJ Maxx too.
LOVE this hand soap when I need a good hand washing (Safeguard). It smells great and leaves my hands feeling super clean. Kroger uses it in their bathrooms, and I looked for it in stores for a long time. I finally gave up and then saw it at Big Lots one day for $1. Woo hoo!

I love wedges, and these are one of my favorite pairs for summer. They are super comfortable. They are made by Keds (Bliss wedge) but have been discontinued.

And one of my favorite treats is Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. Love ‘em!

And, last but not least, fun summer dishes. I got these this year. Plates are from Wal-Mart, and glasses are from Pier 1.
Those are just a few of the things that I love about summer. It’s also a great time for entertaining, but we aren’t doing that as much as we used to. Maybe we’ll plan something in July.

What are your favorite summer things?
