I can't resist asking...what is an "Arnold Palmer"? I love your list. Mine is similar except I live in FL so it's flip-flops year round. I grew up in MI though so I totally relate:-)

Watching the lightning bugs...sitting on the back porch and lighting the tiki torches....heading to the beach!

I love summer too! Coming from Puerto Rico I was used to the warm weather all the time. Now that we live in Colorado, we appreciate more the warm times.

It's really a win-win for everyone. People get to help me meet my fundraising goal AND potentionally win big.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE clickover and enter my raffle!! You can truly win TONS OF PRIZES (totaling over $3000.00 - gift cards, Starbucks coffee maker, $600 in camping equipment, gorgeous jewelry and more).

It's for a great cause….


6 years ago my Dad received a new heart.

This is my way of giving back.

When I walk around in flip flops I try to make them do the "flip flop" noise as loud as possible. :)

Your list is absolutely perfection... Flip flops every day is definitely one of the highlights of summer for me - I can't stand wearing shoes and apparently Princess Nagger is getting that from me - she always says she likes to 'air out her toes'... :)
