Now that the sunburn has finally stopped sizzling, I guess it’s official. Memorial Day Weekend is in full swing, and that can only mean one thing: Summer time, baby. The living isn’t really “easy” or even that different, but there’s a shift in my mentality, knowing that I only have about 14 days left at the office, and about a month before I start my gradual move to the North (Philadelphia by way of Ocean City, NJ… quite the exodus, yes?)
Luckily, today also means Six Pack Sunday. So there’s that.
1. Sunshine Wine
Before this weekend, I’d never made sangria before. But I a Sangria newbie NO MORE! Following (mostly) this recipe for a “light” tropical Sangria from Cosmopolitan, I put it in the fridge Friday night and hoped for the best. Luckily, what I created received rave reviews from my friends.
I nixed the lime slices in favor of lime juice, added a peach and a bit of Splenda, along with an airplane bottle of lime rum which has been sitting in my apartment for way too long.
It was the perfect treat for poolside sunning.
2. A Running Fool
So I know I’ve referenced the Doughman a few times, and yesterday posted a teaser of my sexy costume. But it wasn’t all about eating and costumes and silliness. We actually had to run! And so, on Wednesday, I fought some crazy crowds in downtown Durham to practice my route.
The pride you see on my face is from running the 1.8 mile course in 18 minutes, after getting a little turned around, and drenching my body in sweat. TOTALLY worth it to not get lost on Saturday morning.
3. Summer Beer
Clearly, I’m a fan, as demonstrated by my newest Untappd badge.
4. Chicken… AND waffles?!
Oh my gosh.
More on that later.
5. I got Pizza on my Chest, but Don’t Call Me a Pizza Chest
I may not be a fashionista…. but I gotta say, I’m not a fan of this.
The Pizza Shirt is just a LITTLE too realistic looking for me.
And given the fact that my beau is a notorious pizza hound, I probably shouldn’t get one of these any time soon, for fear of him actually eating me up.
6. Just Call Me Speedo Sally
Yesterday, I was up and wearing a bathing suit by 6:15 am.
I don’t think I’ve done that since I was like… 11.
Who is this crazy Jordy girl?
Speaking of Speedos, I think I gotta toss on my bikini and get back to the pool.
Are you a Sangria fan?
What’s your favorite poolside bevvy?
