I'm sure you have seen this, but it cracks me up every time...I need to share:
Oh, J.T. I love ya.
Anyway, I'm celebrating with TWO link ups! They are so much fun and I want all of you to join in on the fun! The first is an oldie but goodie and the second one is a newbie!
First, time for Top 5 Tuesday!
Best Things about Summer 2012
I don't have any huge plans/trips, but I am looking forward to some things!
1. My job!
I love my job. During the school year it's so fun to hear about everyone's day, hang out during early releases and help with homework. But the summer is when the party happens! We have a summer-long theme, weekly lessons and field trips! I planned the week to learn about the 1500's (not very exciting but I found some neat crafts!) and that week we are going to a planetarium. PUMPED.
2. 3 days off of work for 4th of July!
The 4th of July is my second favorite holiday. Not only do I love America, but I love hot dogs.
But seriously, it's my second favorite. I just love the cookouts, parades, fireworks, wearing red white and blue, etc! It's SO much fun as long as it doesn't rain because then I cry!!
Funny side story: I used to be terrified of fireworks...I mean, crying, hiding behind my mom, thinking I was going to DIE as they fell down from the sky onto me. Now I love them.
3. Splitting time in Martinsville.
Steven will be living in Martinsville so I spend a LOT of time there.
If you aren't familiar with the town, I'm not surprised. They have: 1 Applebee's, 1 Texas Steakhouse, a really sad mall that has a JCPenny Outlet (didn't know those existed), a Walmart (duh), Biscuitville - not sure what it is but I always sing it like Justin Timberlake on SNL singing "Bring it on down to Liquorville" and "Penny Bowling" which I will NEVER be brave enough to go into, among other random things.
It's kind of bare, kind of sketch, but it's home to summer baseball...so in that sense, I love it!
4. Country Music
I'm a big country music fan. Nothing says summer like a little Jason Aldeeeeean filling the car.
Oh yeah, and I'll go ahead and add sun roofs open, road trips, late nights, flip flop tans and LILLY P at all possible moments.
5. Training for a Half-Marathon
I'm serious! The last one I did was freshman year and I am embarrassed. I want to run another so bad and I'm going to get up before work each day and run! I need a routine to make it happen.
What are you looking forward to this summer??
Now I'm also linking up for a little blast from the past!
