First Hodgepodge of the Summer!

I am always so last minute with the hodgepodge. And today I made the mistake of reading my mom's answers before writing my own- she always has the best answers!! Maybe it's because she comes up with the questions... oh well, I tried!

1.Summer's here! What's your favorite sight, sound and smell of summer?
Sight-The ocean at the end of the day, when I'm still sitting in my chair with a good book and the sun is getting a little lower and it's not as hot and I just don't want to go inside. Ever.
Sound- The waves washing in and out over millions of shells.

Smell- Sunscreen and sand. Did you know smell is the biggest memory trigger? One whiff of sunscreen when I unpack my summer wardrobe from storarge and I'm back to last year's vacation. Or that vacation from 10 years ago. Ok I will move away from this question now.

2. Fireflies or lightning bugs-what are they called in your neck of the woods?Lightning bugs- and I can so clearly see myself running around the neigborhood with tupperware in hand with holes in the lid trying to capture them.

3. What is something from this past week that reminded you of your childhood?
See above answer- the lightning bugs are out in full force and so is the honeysuckle- takes me back to simpler days.

4. Define the good life.
Easy as that right? Please refer to Kenny Chesney's song "The Good Stuff."

5. Tell us what we'd see if you took a snapshot of your desk/ work space.
At home my desk is covered in picture frames and postcards and pretty notpads and a trinkets from England (like a red telephone box that doubles as penny bank). It's all very cute. My desk at work is all business. I try to jazz things up by using pink highlighters but I definitely need to bring in some pictures or a cute mousepad. Something that's girly but coordinates with all the yellow legal pads scattered about.

6. Peaches or watermelon?
Peaches- I love them! I even love the fuzzy texture.

7. Ever been skinny dipping?
I honestly don't think I have. And that makes me kinda sad. I feel like that's something everyone should do at least once.

8. Tomorrow I will be on my way to the lake!


  1. I always love when you play along. That picture-big huge sigh. Sigh. Have fun this weekend...I'm off to camp : )

  2. Hi!
    Great answers! Love the beach, but the beach to me is over 1200 miles away. My Aunt lives in Florida and we visited there. It was awesome going into the ocean. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  3. Skinny dip while your young and skinny!! Great answers....I love the sound of the ocean crashing too it's so soothing.

  4. I love being the last one on the beach! For that matter, I love being the first one there, too!
    I think I don't like peaches because of their fuzzy texture. When we lived in SC, we would always stop at Black's to get a couple of boxes for my parents.

  5. Agree with the Kenny Chesney reference. That's the same answer I gave! I enjoyed stopping by!
