  2. Yay for summer! I have always been a flip flop lover, but in recent years, I think I have bought more slides. I probably have an equal amount, too. And yes to butter pecan ice cream! Happy Monday, Andrea!

  21. Playing that Kid Rock song right now is getting me in the mood for summer fun! :) I have to say your lakes are much prettier than ours here in Texas...and with a beach too!

  24. My mouth is watering over the antipasta bake and that strawberry parfait! Both look SO delicious! I love the gingham slides too, those are so fun. You can never go wrong with a great summer dress either!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yum! Why have I never thought of serving corn on the cob with blts. That sounds like the perfect summer combo.

  27. Those gingham slides are so cute! I have never even heard of lemon ice cream!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Saving that antipasta bake recipe! Yum! I am with you on the capris and dresses. I dont wear skirts or shorts. Unless they are athletic shorts, and those are around the house and on vacation like you! Hopefully your pool will be ready for the weekend, how awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, Andrea, you're just darling as ever. I just love how summery this TBB is, and I have to admit, I'm a lake person! I love a pool as much as the next person, but I can't pass up a dip in a lake! I can't wait to see your finished pool area!!! You must be so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  30. You can definitely ROCK a bikini! This is so fun. I thought it was for tomorrow so I'll be a day late (as usual)! This is always fun to do! Mmmm all the food looks yummy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love that you still rock a bikini because you look awesome in them! And we both picked the same song that reminds us of summer! Too funny! And I can totally get behind going to a winery during the summer as well! Talk about relaxing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Tell them to hurry up with the pool so we can FT on our rafts while we drink our toddies!! Ha!! I gotta get another raft, though! Mine bit the dust! Xoxo

  33. You and your deep dark tan are so ready for summer! I love your gingham slides and slushies at a winery sound right up my alley. hope your day is as beautiful as you!!

  36. These were fun summer questions and look at you, all cutesy in all your pics. I don't know how you always have a picture for every single question, guess you live with your phone or camera in your hand at all times. :o)) Love those red gingham slides, so cute! Hope that pool is finished by week's end so you can start enjoying it. Happy week dearie!

  37. That picnic food, going to have to try that! Looks so good! I need to do more picnics, most of our picnics are on the beach with 5 million kids, haha. And I forgot about peaches, I do like those too! Although usually most peaches are only really truely delicious for 1 week out of the summer months...but peach pie...yum! I haven't had one of those in years!

    ReplyDelete
  38. If I still looked that hot in a bikini no doubt it would be my top choice!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Pools are definitely my favorite! They are just relaxing and you don't have to worry too much about getting dirty IN the water, like lakes. lol Slides are cute, but I think they'd literally "slide" off my feet if I tried to wear them. I stick to flip flops, sandals, and gym shoes when I'm walk around a lot.

  51. I'm still waiting for the summer to start, Andrea! I thought it had a few weeks ago and I managed one day by the pool but then the cold and the rain returned! It's still a bit miserable today. More like March than June. It's madness! Fingers crossed it'll come soon and I get my legs out again lol!!
