Top 10

Top 10 reasons to get overly excited that summer is getting near.  Heck, Lindsay and Dorry enjoyed 90 degree weather yesterday in TEXAS!!!!

10.  Seeing Billy in a bathing suit (fyi I couldn't think of the last one and this is what Billy said, but I have to agree;)

9.  Um, hello RACE SEASON!!!

8. Rainbow sandals are worn all day, every day.......makes getting dressed in the morning a lot easier.

7.  We will be in S. CALI for two months (who is down for blogger meet-ups?!?!)

6.  Me and Billy's FREE vacation to the Dominican Republic.

5.  My legs will no longer look like I am wearing white tights at all times.

4.  Our summer dates are the best: Scooter rides to get slurpee's, picnics, long boarding down the canyon, mountain biking and tennis.

3. I am a teacher.  No work for three months.  Yep, I will take that. My days will consist of run, blog, stalk your blogs (4 hours at least), run again, go lay-out with Megan, Hang out with Billy, repeat.

AND THE TOP 2 ARE.......Get excited for this, it is kind of a big deal.

2.  BBQ's.  There is nothing better than getting together with all of your family/friends and grilling your favorite foods while running around in the grass and finishing off the night with at least 3 popsicles.  To prepare for our grilling days ahead, I grilled salmon, zucchini and red pepper on my George Foreman and put them on top of my normal 3.5 lbs. of spinach and broccoli with tomatoes, cheese and eggs (I know......eggs with salmon, don't judge a book by its cover.  Would I ever mislead you in something when it comes to food, I think not).

And the most important reason to be crazy happy that summer is getting closer...........

1.  I will enjoy unlimited amounts of ice cream without shivering.  Even when it is cold I still eat more than enough ice cream which makes me even colder than before (definitely worth it) but as soon as those temps rise, I will love ice cream that much more and probably increase my intake threefold.

6. Starstruck by Lady Gaga

10. I Can Transform Ya by Black Eyed Peas

I just wish summer would end! It lasts way to long in Florida. I have Fall & Spring envy.

Love grilled pineapple, onions and peppers.

Summer dates = Theme parks!

I'm so ready for summer too!! No school is amazing and all the time to do whatever. What's your fav ice cream flavor?

Oh my word. I CANNOT wait for summer! We have snow here right now and I am disgusted! I love summer because it means endless amount of playtime out side! Biking, hiking, walking at night. Love it all! Oh, and getting my tan on is #1.

Veggies and Fish. mmmm...

Hike in a remote woods, picnic by a stream, followed by the afternoon laying by a pool... and dinner out somewhere on the patio of a ritzy restaurant. Yes, that would be like a 40 hour day, but a girl can dream, right!??!

 
At March 24, 2011 at 6:13 AM , Blogger Lindsay and James Cotter said...

yes, grilling!! Love salmon on the grill. 90F here yesterday means its going to be 120F come summer. EEK! save me some ice cream!

Seriously, you should try an adventure race. The food you see coming out of people's packs will blow your mind.

I cant wait to be able to jump into the OCEAN after my long runs!! That is for sure the best part of summer.

I am also excited because my boyfriend is a college professor so he gets the summer off too so lots and lots of boyfriend time! Yay!!

How do you grill pizza!? I must know!

No Snow!!! Although, I am sorta dreading summer because my husband is going to be gone for a month for some training exercise for the Air Force. But I guess that just means I have a month for a lot of outside running!

I am looking forward to planting my garden, and then eating all of the delicious things that come from it. My favorite thing to grill is quesadillas, but I hear grilled pizza is amazing too. My ideal summer date is a hike followed by ice cream.

 
At March 24, 2011 at 6:55 AM , Blogger misszippy said...

Seriously, I LIVE for summer! Why I live in a place that doesn't offer summer temps year round is beyond me. For me, it's the simple pleasure of sitting outside, almost all day long!

PINEAPPLE!! I'm so ready for summer!

 
At March 24, 2011 at 7:06 AM , Blogger Jogging with Fiction said...

My favorite thing to grill is probably corn or fish, but corn is the best!

My ideal summer date is hiking!

BBQ salmon is the best!! MMMm, mmmm, mmmm!!!

I can't wait until summer starts! I already bought a romper, sandals, and a summer beach hat. And yes, there is still snow on the ground here. I just can't wait for the heat!

And- all dates in the summer are the best!

Your list made me so excited for summer! Sadly down here in the South, summer means the end of racing season because it's wayyyyy too hot to be running any distance more than a 5K before sunset. I'll be spending lots of time in the gym this summer and going on my outside runs around 7 p.m.! :)

 
At March 24, 2011 at 7:24 AM , Blogger Mallory said...

You just made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside which is awesome because it's snowing here!!!!!!!! I love your top ten!

My favorite thing about summer is going to the beach!

I LOVE grilling. We unfortunately can only use a George Forman because we don't have a deck at our new place. BOO. That's the only downfall.

My ideal summer date is going to watch the sunset at the beach!!

The thing I'm looking forward to the most in spring/summer is warm weather!!! :) Also, eating ice cream and not freezing to death! I love ice cream year round, but it'll be nice to eat it without wearing sweats and being covered in a blanket haha.

My favorite thing to grill are potatoes and onions! I haven't even made it, but my Dad does and seasons them so well! :)

My ideal summer date involves walking on the beach at night after going for froyo!

 
At March 24, 2011 at 7:29 AM , Blogger Chunky Monkey said...

FLIP FLOPS!!! Anything tastes better on the grill but my fav veggie is asparagus and fruit would be pinapple. Yumm! Ideal summer date would be spent outdoors whether walking on the beach, sitting on the dock of the bay or camping out in the mountains. I <3 summer.

Um...is anything NOT good when it is grilled? Seriously! I got a griddler a couple months ago. Best.Purchase.Ever.

 
At March 24, 2011 at 7:33 AM , Blogger Everyday Love said...

My ideal summer date...April 25th. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

haha But really, I LOVE summer because of fire flies and warm nights hanging out with friends!

I am in texas too and the 90 degree weather was insanse... VERY HOT RUN yesterday! I love summer, I can't wait for no school, laying out, frozen yogurt, cooking, and staying up late! I like grilling corn!! So good!!

Two months in Southern California?!?! I'm in San Diego! Can we hang out, even if I don't have a blog (and instead just stalk yours for awesome running stories and spin playlists)?

I love beach bbqs, open air concerts, and laying out at the beach.

Ideal summer date? Husband and I take our bikes up to La Jolla, get lunch, picnic at the beach and watch the seals, then go to happy hour and watch the sunset. <3 Bliss.

Oh, I just love you more everyday! I love your list and agree with many of them. It's so warm here already and I really need a pedicure, but I'm waiting until after the race on Sunday. :) I love to grill veggies and salmon, too. Well, Billy is the one who grills and he does a great job. Hope you are having a great day, J! xo

 
At March 24, 2011 at 8:25 AM , Blogger Miranda said...

Can't wait to wear flip flop everyday! And run without 10 pounds of clothes on, although I will complain about the summer heat too. Hamburgers are my favorite item to grill - I just love a big juicy burger!! Ideal summer date - one where we don't take the kids lol.

At March 24, 2011 at 8:37 AM , Blogger Zaneta said...

ice cream is the #1b reason... #1a is that I'm getting married this summer!!! ;) lol

I thought summer was well on its way as we've been having high 50's - high 60's degree weather and then I get up today and they're calling for snow and the heat is on lol... bleh!

You're getting me so pumped for summer, and that salad sounds so refreshing.
You should definitely skype teach my spin class later today - your playlist sounds awesome!
The perfect summer date would be (I hope my boyfriend's reading hehe): hiking, maple soft serve ice cream, then spending the rest of the day in the water or lounging by a lake.

I'm looking forward to summer for hiking, biking, and camping.

But, as a side note- noooooooo on the laying out/tanning girlie! I've seen someone die a slow and painful death from melanoma, and I have had moles carved out of my body that were bad news.

It's just not worth risking your health for a little color. Seriously, you want to be around a long time for Billy (and you want to look hot for him too, and tanning causing premature aging and wrinkles!)

Have fun in California but please pack some sunscreen :)

I love this post for reminding me that summer is just around the corner! I can't wait! Although our summers are usually cold and rainy, that won't stop me from bbqing, wearing flops, surfing in rashie and shorts, vitamin D...!! Best summer date? early morning surf, picnic, tennis, and a bbq with friends. Bliss!

Shh I am reading you here at work while listening to person talk about boring stuff here at work. BUT you just made me really LOL here. OOPS! Here is your quote " My legs will no longer look like I am wearing white tights at all times." and I must say we both have white tight legs. My hubby last night said to me (while packing my race bag for this weekends National Half Marathon here in DC) HONEY OMG are you really going to wear that skirt?!? I said why yes! He then went on to say I think your legs are as white as the knee socks you are wearing and to those people cheering on the side they are going to think your socks are your legs. UGh...... I rolled my eyes and thought in my head MEN! HAHA
I love grilled potatoes cut to look like fries with a little EVOO and sea salt on top as well as scalops YUMMY!

YAY grilling. We live near where the fishing boats live in Seattle, so we have the FRESHEST seafood & salmon in the summer. I grill sockeye w/ a bit of butter & Johnny's seasoning, then squeeze 1/2 a lemon over it. NOM NOM NOM.

I am sooo excited for summer! Cold temps make me cranky so I cannot wait for it to get warmer here. One of my favorite things about summer is wearing rainbows every day too!

I LOVE grilling and grill as much as possible when its warm out. Pineapple is one of my favorites, too! I also love peppers, onions, corn on the cob, asparagus, fish, chicken, steak, etc, etc, etc!

My favorite summer date is probably packing a picnic and spending the day at the beach!

your post makes me want summer RIGHT NOW but it's supposed to snow in DC on Sunday. UGH.

Can I move to Utah and hang with you? Please.

I am so very excited for bare legs, sundresses, flip flops and not layering up for every outside activity. Eating on patios, my deck, reading in the sun.

I lovveee grilled pineapple. And veggies.

my favorite summer date growing up was going to the drive in movies and watching the flicks on a blanket in the grass. now i think it has to be a long run followed by a brunch outside! (that's a date, right?)

Considering that our summers here in Phoenix get 100 degree plus. I am NOT looking forward to summer. On the contrary I am enjoying the perfect 70-80 degree days right now. My summer months are more like your winter months. Mostly inside ( unless I'm vegging in the pool)

Trust me on this one: Cut a red onion in 1/4ths (not all the way through) cut a piece of bacon in half place on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper, wrap in foil and grill about 1 hour till VERY soft. pure sweet melt in your mouth heaven. Try it and let me know what you think.

okay so this salad, and all your other spinach and broccoli salads, totally inspired me tonight. i realized i had nothing for lunch tomorrow and would probably be taking ramen and then looked at your blog like i do every day of my life and saw this salad and remembered i had spinach AND broccoli. oh my. so i just made my lunch for tomorrow and i'm so excited to eat it. serious. spinach, broccoli, peas, corn, ham, pineapple, and cheese. plus salsa and this amazesauce dressing. talk about party in your mouth. seriously can't wait. crazy that i comment on your blog like 9 times a day and try to copy you? probably.

okay. half of my point was to tell you about the amazing dressing. only because i know you love cafe rio. like how i said that like i totally know you? i'm ridiculous. and it's not exact cafe rio dressing. obviously that can't be copied. but it's close. and healthier! way healthier. anyway. don't know if you even care about this right now?? i'm posting the link anyway...

ggirrrl, this post made me SO excited for summer! I'm from Socal, but I'm not really a blogger, and definitely not a runner :( Can I still be your friend? I used to swim in High school haha

Okay well this just depresses me because it summer is just FINISHING where I live and it was the shortest/suckiest summer ever! But i'm gonna be positive and list the things I'm looking forward to about the cooler weather...

1. Pretty autumn leaves
2. Hot chocolate with every meal!
3. Snuggling on the couch under blankets
4. Hot water bottles!
5. Bed socks/slippers
6. The butterflies and tingles in my tummy when I go outside to a frosty morning and everything is glistening and fresh :)
7. Hot comfort food...mashed potato, mac n cheese, sticky date pudding, lasagne..bring it on!
8. Scarves and mittens and beanies!
9. Those clear cold winter nights when the stars just sparkle so bright and it's just amazing
10. Cold-weather-red-noses on everyone around me :) I just love 'em.
