Friend Makin’ Monday Is Back!

Amber is hosting FMM while Kasey takes a break from blogging so here we go.  My good friend, Char, has just started her first blog.  She is participating in FMM with us so please welcome her. And if you want to join the FMM fun, just click on the button below to sign up. =)

This week’s topic is:
Ten Things I Loved About This Summer
  1. This is the first time I have ever embraced the Summer heat.  It has been relatively mild in New York until last week, and now it’s hot.  But for the first time ever, I don’t mind sweating because my body is releasing toxins which makes me happy. 
  2. I have formed friendships with some fantastic people including my friend, Charlene, who is completely awesome. 
  3. Traveling has been a big part of this Summer.  I went on a beach vacation for a week, Atlantic City and Mohegan Sun….and to visit family for a couple of weeks, but I’m going to the Bahamas in the Fall.  I’m definitely looking forward to going there again…just saying. 
  4. Going to live tapings of TV shows is fun, and I’ve done that a few times…
  5. I LOVE wearing sun dresses, and I have definitely been doing that a lot. 
  6. My birthday was fantastic…closing Gavin’s bar then staying out with friends until the sun came out was amazing.  Walking around Soho at 3AM definitely has it’s perks. 😉 
  7. One of my favorite things this summer has been my recumbent bike.  It was a gift from Nick for my birthday (yeah, I hinted a lot..I know.)  And it has been invaluable to me this summer.  On rainy days and days I didn’t feel like doing cardio at the gym or outside, the ‘bent has been here for me.  We are going to have a great winter together too, I’m sure. 🙂
  8. I have also enjoyed walking properly after having a broken foot in the spring.  The tan line I received from my cast in Aruba is long gone…and my pale skin a little darker at the moment. 
  9. I have begun cooking at home a lot more, and I’ve experimented with some fantastic fruits and vegetables this summer. I even planted some… I’ll miss all of the fresh produce that summer brings, but worry not friends…I’ll still eat fruits and veggies. 
  10. BBQ parties.  I’m going to one Friday, by the way.  We will spend the afternoon in the pool then eat dinner outside (weather permitting.)  Few things make me happier than fun with friends.
This has been the best summer I’ve ever had, and for me, it’s not over yet.  It was easy to comeup with 10 things I love about summer, but fall is my favorite season.  Fall brings college football, hot chocolate, bon fires (even if I have to travel to enjoy one) and holiday anticipation. While I’m looking forward to the festivities fall will bring, I’m am more than content to enjoy the rest of this season.

    OMG,I totally agree with everything you said about that ugly, ugly woman. If there is such a thing as reincarnation I hope she comes back as a fat girl! Not that she's far right now, she is by no means skinny in her pic an she is certainly someone I would have called fat-head when I was growing up… not that I called people names when I was a kid, I was usually the one being picked on in the early years… but I thought about giving those bullies a piece of my mind MANY times! Then my mom taught me to kill 'em with kindness and I made lots of friends and had a great life to show for it. I almost forgot there are still nasty ignorant people like her in this world.

    Sounds like you are enjoying living in NY. The bike is probably perfect there. Please be careful walking around early hours (3AM) though. Do I sound like your mom? You never can be too careful. Have the rest of a great summer and thanks for coming by and leaving nice comments.

    I loved Soho when we visited NYC…especially the Betsey Johnson store. I actually had a dream last night that I met her and she got her laptop and was going to give me a sneak peek of her new line of purses and sunglasses and shoes and….MY HUBBY WOKE ME UP!

    I love the fall too.
