This Summer...

Yikes, I feel rushed this week!
I'm a bit behind on all of your blogs
and will be playing catch up until the 
19th of May...
so please be patient with me 
while I pull my hair out 
because this project of mine
for my fun interior class
is taking a bit more time than 
expected at night!!

Lately it feels like Summer in
sunny California.
I hope the weather in all of your
states is getting warmer and gearing
you towards Summer time, yay!
My bike ride with BK last weekend
really got me in the Summer mood!
Here are some things that I would
like to do during my Summer time...
I love it here. 
Situated near Newport Beach,
you can hike through the hills
to view the ocean below.

This photo below is from my Facebook.
This summer I am going to continue 
to go running in these beauties,
yes, this is the actual pair that I own.
I'm happy to say that I went running
this week three times with only minor
pain in my leg but I'm still going to take
it easy. It definitely felt great to be 
running again - I looooved it!!
Visiting my family in Utah and
going to our log cabin is definitely
top on my list...
I want to float in the river
outside our home, 
read a good book,
go bike riding,
and my list goes on and on.
You can read about my log cabin
dream home here.
Sigh. I want to be here right now.
Go watch Sex and the City 2 with some
gal pals on May 27th!!
I can. not. wait. Can you?!
Holy Carrie and Big!!
Sorry you Aiden fans,
I love him but Carrie is destined
to only have her heart with Big's heart.
Go to Maui in 56 days
and counting with my family!!!
I haven't been to Maui in 2
years and can not wait!!
I know, that sounded spoiled but
when your parents go every year
a girl wants to come along, right?!
Yep, that's me being buried in the sand.
Also this is me below at Big Beach 
in Maui two years ago...
I also want to read more books...
Umm, hello Carrie at 18.
Make some more artsy creations
for my Etsy shoppe.
Here's one of my vintage cards.
It's pretty much extinct right now
since I've been so busy.
Must. Make. New. Things!!
Go on some more adventures
and ocean dreaming with my
Big Kiddo. We always come up
with the most creative activities
and I love it!

Other activities I would love
to make time for?
*Finish my tee shirt quilt
*Learn how to surf
*Kick boxing and yoga
*Sign up for a new race if my leg heals
*Learn more about interior design and fashion

What do you want to do this Summer?
