My first "Ten on Tuesday"

I have seen quite a few bloggers posting their "Ten on Tuesday" posts so I figured I would give it a go around. I haven't pre-read any of the questions so here we go...

1. From your childhood, what do you miss most about summer vacation?

Thats easy... the fact that it was 2 months long and all the slip & slides I would set up in my backyard with my sisters and all the neighborhood kids.

2. Are you going anywhere on vacation this summer?

Not that I am aware of. I went to Vegas for BiSC and that was a spontaneous booking so who knows what else will be sprung upon me this summer. I would LOVE to go to Kelowna for a long weekend and enjoy the sunshine, beaches and beer. Nat? You reading? Lets do it!

3. What foods do you like to barbeque?

Im really good at grilling veggies. Especially asparagus or corn on the cob. AND I just saw a new little trick for grilling corn on the cob when I was watching The View yesterday so I can't wait to try it out. Thank you Guy Fieri!

4. How do you celebrate the Fourth of July?

I don't. Im Canadian. LOL But Canada Day is only a few days before. I have mixed feelings about Canada Day. My mixed emotions have nothing to do with it being Canada Day (I am a PROUD Canadian) but the fact it was the same day that my sisters funeral was held on. So every year I am proud to be Canadian but sad to remember what happened on that day for me personally.

5. What's your favorite beverage to drink in the summertime?

Now its frozen Mojitos thanks to The Flamingo hotel and BiSC. Other than that its my tried and true drink, Gin & 7up (which... side note... I just learned is the same thing as a 7&7 so now I'm gonna order it my by that name and sound more grown up!)

6. What movie are you looking forward to seeing this summer?

Bridesmaids, and I saw it already. It didn't disappoint. I almost fell out of my chair laughing so hard during the airplane scene. Go see it.

7. In the car: Windows down or AC?

Sunroof open ALL THE TIME!

8. Have you ever had a summer fling?

Yes. Summer is the perfect time for romance. I hope to have one this summer too! Any takers?

9. Do you wear sunscreen?

If you were around me at the pool in Vegas you know that I was sunscreen crazy! I did NOT want to get burnt like I usually do on vacation so I was reapplying every hour. Spray on sunscreen is a god-sent.

10. Do you have any favorite summertime activities?

Stampede (obvs!), playing tennis in the sunshine, going for a run by the river just before sunset, rafting down the river, bbq's and bonfires, getting my drink on with my friends on a patio. I love summmmmmer!!!

Oh God mojitos are so good and perfect for summer!

I did pretty well on the non burning front in Vegas. Just one spot on my arm that I seemed to miss.
