Top 2 Tuesday - All about SUMMERTiME!


This weeks TOP 2 is: Top 2 favorite things about summer!
Forgive me now, but I cannot list only 2 favorite things about summer
so I'm going to list my top 5! Summer is my favorite time of year.

1. Going to the beach
As I've said before, I go to Ocean City at least once every summer. When I'm at the beach, I'm such a happy person. Laying on the beach and hearing the waves crash is so relaxing to me! I could stay there for hours, wearing SPF of course. I enjoy the night life there because they have outside bars/clubs and it's so different then being in a sweaty, loud bar. OC also has an endless amount of putt putt places & not to brag or anything, but I'm pretty good :-)

2. Cookouts
(google images)
During the summer, I attend many of these. On Sunday's, if its nice, my dad cooks on the grill and invites the family over. I love when we're all together. M & I also cook on the grill during the summer. I just think food tastes so much better when it's cooked that way :-)

3. 4th of July
(weheartit.com)
Since I was a little girl, I have LOVED the 4th of July. My mom & dad always took my brother & I to see fireworks. Sometimes we went with people from the neighborhood too. We would pack snacks and blankets and make a night out of it :-) The first year M & I started dating, we didn't go see fireworks. To say I was sad is an understatement. At the time, I don't think he understood how much I wanted to see them. I may seem "childish" for being upset about it but it's like a tradition to me. Luckily, the fireworks were showing all weekend and he surprised me with a trip to see them :-)

4. Driving with the sunroof open
and great music playing!
(weheartit.com)
When the sun is shining, there is nothing better than taking a drive with no destination (in a clean car of course lol) with the windows down, sunroof open, and good music playing! Sometimes I do this if I need to clear my head.

5. Summer Clothes!
The flip flops, wedges, sun dresses, shorts, tanks, bathing suits!
Gahhh, I love it all! It's so nice not to have to put on layers and layers of clothing just to go outside. I loathe winter! When I can leave the house in a pair of shorts, tank, and flip flops, I'm a happy girl :-)
(that's just a very random collection of clothes I put together lol)
summer fun

P.S. In your post before this your hair is SUPER cute- curled with it pulled halfway back in the poof look....HOW do you do the poof? I can never get it to look right, and I want to do this look, with my natural curly hair, for my friend's wedding....the half way pulled back poof to go along with it.

You really like bathing suits?! Ha, jk.
Those are the cutest little platforms. I actually just got into putting my sunroof down. It's like I just discovered it or something.

All 5 of these are my favorites too! I even have a summer playlist on my iPod that I literally only play during the summer. One of my favorite things to do is to update it with the newer summer-worthy songs.

I get to be on the beach next week! AND wear summer clothes. Yay.

(I only really get to do this when i go on holiday because the weather in Glasgow is rarely suitable for summer clothes OR the beach, sadly.)
