Summer Love

Happy summer everyone! I am already off to a great summer and wanted to share with you all some of the things I am LOVIN' at the here it goes!

1. Facebook- Isn't it so wonderful how we have such access to each other? I love it! What did we do without it? Oh yeah, we called each other! Those of you who know me know I struggle with that one! I am SO not a phone person!

2. New Cars- Matt and I got a new car that gets 40 miles a gallon, and I swoon over this car! It is a Hyundai Elantra and it is a BLAST to drive! Matt and I sometimes box over who is going to drive it!

3. Cookbooks- I am a cookbook junkie, but during the school year I don't get to peruse them much. But during the summer I love to plan out our weekly meals and try new recipes! Her are a few of my faves!

4. Reading- Again something I don't have much time for during the school year. I am planning a book- a- thon this summer! Here is what I am currently reading:
And here is my next read (above)
I really try to read fiction and I do like it, but I am such a non-fiction freak! After these I am going to try to read 2 fiction books!

5. Passion Tea Lemonade- I love this stuff, but got really tired of paying $4 for it every time I got one. I tried to make my own at home, but it was an epic fail every time. So I decided to have a little chat with the Starbucks barista. She let me in on a little secret that the passion tea bags are not the ones sold in stores (those are only for hot tea) but rather they use a "special" ice tea passion tea bag! What? No wonder I couldn't get it to taste right. So got on and ordered me a HUGE box! Now I finally have my own pitcher in my fridge everyday!

6. And BEST of all right now, I am LOVIN' being a teacher during the summer months! I love it during the school year too, but the summer is AH. MA. ZING!
