Unfinished Business With Summer

Thursday, August 26, 2010

As the summer is about to end I have that uneasy feeling of unfinished business (with summer, of course)....To get rid of it, I am going to take full advantage of the next 6 days, so next Wednesday I can welcome September with open arms.
Here are a few things I will try to do: eat ice-cream everyday, have a picnic with my girls, sunbath while enjoying the smell of sunscreen, have a water fight in a park and walk bare foot on the morning wet grass.
Any other ideas? Maybe there's something you are planning to do.

Kisses,
xoxoxox

ps: Also if you haven't entered our GIVEAWAY, hurry up! You have till Sunday!

All of the above sounds good!

I'm planning to lounge with the monkeys by the pool today!
School starts on monday and lord knows I don't hang out in my pool alone!

Oh I hear you! They all sound wonderful. I'm going to try to hit the beach this summer one last time. So sad! xoxo

Gina said...

these are PERFECT ideas. This made me smile; i've been really looking foward to the cooler weather of the fall but maybe now i'll just try to appreciate the summer while it lasts.

Mary said...

Getting to the beach one last time - not sure if we can make it happen, but I'm gonna try!

Kristen said...

Sounds NICE. I would have to agree with the ice cream part. Yum-my ;) However, I think I'm pretty much ready for summer to be ova. I'm ready for more productive days :)

Paige said...

oh dear, i can't really believe sept. is coming so quickly. it's been so cold all summer i haven't even been in the ocean! i might have to stretch my summer into the far reaches of sept. because that's really when the best beach weather is anyway :)

Lenore @ Lather. Write. Repeat. said...

Mmm, that all sounds really good. Make a big pitcher of sangria to drink on the deck while you read trashy novels?

I am going to trim my overgrown garden. When the cooler nights of fall arrive, it should be in great shape for evenings with friends and loved ones!

Your summer bucket list is absolutely GENIUS! I had a very similar one before leaving for school; it's so vital to cram it all in!

When I was taking photos at a park last week in the morning, the grass was sooo dewy that I did away with my flip-flops (I was sliding around in them too much). It was a pretty great feeling, that wet grass. :)
