Summer Link Up.

Morning run…4 miles at an 8:15 pace on the ‘mill followed up with some strength training doing a lot of upper body. And…I’m already sore. Ouchie.


I really was not feeling it this morning and woke up around about 6:45 am looking like this.

But I got it done anyway. Actually mornings like this when I don’t want to workout/run I end up having some of the best workouts. Funny how that happens.

I am a little behind on this one but I thought this summer link up was a lot of fun! And well…it’s still the start of summer, yes? There’s still so much I want to check off of the bucket list. So here we go.

The one thing I am most looking forward to this summer is lots and lots of pool time. And getting really tan. Like toasted mocha tan.


The most annoying person I know is…haha…oh wow. Probably my mom? Don’t tell her…although I’m sure she already knows how I feel. Still love her lots though.

I would like to meet a few new cocktails this summer. Preferably poolside would be wonderful.

After a long day, there is nothing better than…taking your bra off. Keeping it real.

The most embarrassing summer work uniform I ever had to wear was when I worked at Curves in high school and some of college…we always had to wear silly shirts that had the logo all over it. Those were the days.

When I hear my alarm clock go off…if it’s on a Monday, I have no choice but to get up since I teach spin class. That 5 am club ain’t no joke.

My favorite form of summer exercise is um…duh, running.


When the ice cream truck comes I always do a little happy dance.

The oldest article of summer clothing I own is a bikini with reggae style colors. I still wear it when I’m feeling all Caribbean.

My favorite summer outdoor activity is running along the trails. And anything by a body of water.

My favorite thing to grill is corn. Good gracious YUM.

The worst summer date/romance I had was probably some guy in high school. Oh boy. Let’s move on.

My favorite summer drink is white wine.

There are times when I just wish summer wasn’t so dang HOT in Texas. Right now it’s pretty mild. Bracing myself for triple digits in the coming weeks.

The best song on the radio right now is this one.

Jimmy Buffet is someone I’m not all that interested in.

My best summer vacation ever was a cruise to Cozumel and Honduras.

4th of July is all about the boom boom show.


After I’m done reading/commenting here…I’m going to write some promos here at work.

It’s not summer until you wear flip flops.

Finish any sentence or join me for the link up!

  1. Well now I really want to grill some corn and drink an ice cold glass of white wine. Up until a month ago I was never on the wine-train but now I can’t get enough. It must be a summer thing!

  2. ahhh good choices all ’round — love that you want to “meet” some new cocktails, poolside. wish i could join in on that meetup. 🙂

  3. I love Jimmy Buffett…Canadian Parrothead alert! You’ll have to come to my Canadian beach and we can waste away in Margaritaville…or just work on our tans 🙂
    I swear Michelle takes her bra off on her way from the Jeep to the front door!

  4. Love this!!! I was thinking I need to blog again. It’s been a few days and was wondering what to blog and then I read this. 🙂 Thanks for the idea girl! However…not a Jimmy Buffett fan? C’mon girl!!! (just kidding…everybody is entitled to their own opinions, etc.) But…now I do need to go listen to his song Cheeseburger in Paradise. 🙂
