Happy 4th of July (for the Americans) and a happy weekend!

Friday, July 2, 2010


Happy weekend, lovies!  For the Americans, I hope you all have wonderful 4th of July celebrations!  Anyone have anything special planned?  My plans happen to be a part of this week's Fill-in-the-Blank Friday, so read on to hear what I'm doing!

1. This weekend for the 4th of July I'll be going to a mini-family reunion BBQ (described as "small"...which, you know, means like 70 people or something).  And then possibly the San Diego County Fair?  Or maybe going to Big Bear to my friend's family house.  I'm not sure.

2. Fireworks are impossibly loud. And nice, usually.  Especially if they make shapes, like the smiley face or heart ones.  And the one that makes Mickey Mouse at Disneyland.

3. Nothing says summer like the sound of velcro as surfers put on/take off their ankle straps and the clink of bottles as people rush to hide their beer as the Lifeguards & Beach Security make their rounds.

4. My favorite summer memory is sitting at the lake in the south of France.

5. My favorite thing about summer is Mexican food (carne asada burrito!) after a hot beach day.  And BBQs.

6. Summer in a word is ice cream.

7. If I could choose to have summer or winter year round I'd pick winter.  Sorry summer, sorry San Diego, sorry all my friends.  I love the beach and picnics in the park and BBQs on the lawn and all that fun stuff, but the winter is cozy, and layers, and boots, and cookies baking and lights twinkling.

I definitely prefer cooler weather than California in the summer, ha! :)

We have a 60% chance of rain all weekend so I'm not sure if I'm even going to venture out to see fireworks! Boo!

Have a great Fourth!

I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
