Summer Staples

Summer is my favorite time of the year.  One day I will live in a place where summer is the only season!  #goals  This week is really the kick off for my most adored season since it’s the last week of school for the oldest kiddo.

When I think of summer I immediately know exactly what I need to have a fabulous one:

Everything outside is our family motto for the summer.  That includes every meal.  Life is better on the outside!


For fourteen years I have always had a pool in the summer.  Now that all ends with the fact that my mom has lost her mind sold her place.  Also, since I’m not in an apartment I have no pool outside my own door.  Fingers crossed we get our pool next season. If we don’t move far away.

Great view with great friends #excitingmoment

Speaking of water…when you are 224 miles from the ocean and have an insatiable need for water life then you go to the lake.  We have one lake we love – LKN – and another lake in the other direction we can sneak off to every now and then – WKS.  Date nights are best by the water too!

I love my best friend! #myunbiologicalsister #shegetsme #wouldnttrade

Time with friends, including my BESTIE, is always a must.

And finally….a vacation

Ahhh bacteria infested water! #summer2k16 #weekendgetaway #northmyrtlebeach

  1. Love your summer must. I wish we lived closer to an ocean but our local lake will have to do for us. Even though I will be drinking more vodka sodas this summer I am curious what is in your pirate punch (we love Bacardi in our house).

  2. I hope your very own personal pool becomes a reality next year! You will love it! And then Mr. CCK will have to build you a cook shack so you can eat al fresco every day in the summer! It’s wonderful!

  3. Rum (Malibu) is a summer staple around here! A good drink will get you through summer. I hope you get a pool. That is something we have been talking about a lot lately as well. Summer is the best season and you have a great list!

  4. We have a pool and are close to the beach. You can come stay with us as long as you bring the pirate punch.


  5. We have very similar lists. I have been spending as much coffee, wine and dinner time al fresco as i can. I will tackle the suit (which, damn girl, you look good in!) water and beach along with my version of pirate juice in 18 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Summer!
