Summer Lovin'

You know the words to the song..."Summer lovin' had me a blast"...
Well, this post isn't about Danny or Sandy,
 but it is about some the things I am TOTALLY loving about summer.  
One of the great things about living in Oklahoma is that we have four distinct seasons.  
Just as we've had it "up to here" with winter
along comes spring.  
Then, just as we think we can't sneeze one more sneeze, 
along comes summer and the HOT blazing heat.  
Soon, summer will be replaced with the beauty of fall, but for now I'm just lovin' summer, the 120 heat index and all.  

Some of my fav moments right now are the lazy summer days on the porch reading and watching Isaiah run around drawing colorful pictures on the sidewalk with chalk, summer nights out with friends, and dreaming of possibilities and future plans as I watch my house addition being built.  

As I've been enjoying summer, the days have been passing by so quickly and I've missed a couple of important blogging moments.  
The wonderful Becca of The Texas Darlings did an awesome BFFE 
(aka Bloggy Flip Flop Exchange)
  
I failed to post or link up.  
*slap on the wrist*  
Bad blogger.  

However, I'm attempting to somewhat redeem myself today.  
So, here are my simply ADORABLE flip-flops that Molly from Fleur-de-Bee MADE for me!  

Aren't they the cutest?!  Through our little chats on Facebook, she found out that I love all things zebra and she added some zebra print ribbon.  I love them!  She also sent me a little goodie bag with salt water taffy, a much needed pedicure set, and some fabulous-summery nail polish!  Thank you so much, Molly!!!  
Not only did Becca organize a swap for the grown-ups, and I use that term loosely, but she organized a swap for the kiddos too!  

Isaiah swapped with Alex, whose mommy is Connie from The Young and the Relentless.  I wish I had a pic of his cute camo flip flops and all the goodies he got, but he tore into that package and away he went!  He was at work with me the day it came in the mail and I didn't even get a chance to take a pic of all his super cool goods! A big THANK YOU to Alex and his mommy!!  
Isaiah loved it all!!  

A humongous THANK YOU to Becca 
for hosting and organizing the swap!  You always do such a good job, Becca!  

So, what are you LOVIN' about summer right now?
 "Summer lovin' had me a blast - summer lovin', happened so fast"

Love the flip flops! We are enjoying a HOT summer too. I love it! We went straight from winter to summer. Totally skipped spring. I just hope we don't have an early fall...LOL!
