Summer Favs

Confession, I don't really like summer...its just so hot.  Too hot.

However, I have loved a few things about this summer: 

1. Our garden.  

Unlike me, it loves the heat and we have gotten so much from it this year! This was one of many delicious suppers we got out of the garden:

2. Trip to Texas

It was so great to visit with my extended family in Houston again!  Hopefully it will become a tradition in these later years.  We always love the food (best Mexican ever), but this year I was also introduced to Charming Charlie's.  It was like the mecca of all jewelry stores.  You can imagine the elation when my sister Kelsey told me we have one in Raleigh.  Can't wait to check it out! 

And if you are ever in Houston, be sure to check out Gringos:

3. The Amazing Spiderman

So there were a lot of great movies that came out this summer, but I think this one was my favorite.  Um, Andrew Garfield....need I say more?  Wesley and I were so impressed with the script, actors, and pretty true to the original story line, that we have already gotten rid of the "older version" and are anticipating when this one comes out on BlueRay.  

4. Orlando Family Vacation

Three words:  Harry Potter World.  I have no shame admitting that I am a huge Harry Potter fan.  A much needed 5 day vacation to Universal Studios and Disney world was a great way to end our summer.  Oh, it was hot, but so worth it!

Cheers for summer being over... so excited for fall!
