3 Things: Summer Weddings

3 Things: Summer Weddings

I think I've finally hit that age where all of my friends have either gotten married, given up or would only elope, so I haven't been to a summer wedding in years now. I know they're expensive to attend, but there was a few years there were you could count on some great food and some drunken dance moves by…
3 Things: Summer Blockbusters

3 Things: Summer Blockbusters

I have a confession to make: I almost only go to the movies in the summer. On the rare occasion, studios will release some great horror movies around Halloween. But other than that, if it's not released in the summer, I will wait until it comes to Redbox or for Black Friday when I can buy the DVD cheap. It…

3 Things–Summer Vacation

Everyone I know is going on summer vacation right now and if you're like me, you love hearing about everyone's adventures so you can A) Live vicariously through them AND B) Get ideas for where you're going to travel next. This year my hubby and I are going to Scotland for over 2 weeks. I am ridiculously excited! I've had…
3 Things: Beaches

3 Things: Beaches

It's summer and all I can think about is the beach. But not just any beach, a tropical paradise of a beach. Clear, blue water and powdery sand are my ideas of bliss. I live in New England and I'm about an hour from the ocean, so I have options for sun and sand, but there's something so much better…
3 Things: I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

3 Things: I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

When I was a kid, I lived for summers when the ice cream man would make his rounds in my neighborhood. You'd hear that melodic tune from his truck and all the neighborhood kids would chase after him like sugar-addicted lemmings. As an adult, I live in the middle of nowhere and the ice cream man is never going to…

3 Things: Feel the Burn!

3 Things: Feel the Burn!

We're well into summer now and I'm feeling the burn. The sunburn, that is. I'm a fair gal and the sun is my sworn enemy. It wasn't always that way--when I was a kid, I rarely burned and I could get George Hamilton levels of tan. It's kind of creepy seeing a 4-year-old get THAT tan. Then when I reached…
3 Things: 4th of July

3 Things: 4th of July

The 4th of July, our nation's Independence Day--is this upcoming Monday and I am prepping for a long weekend of day drinking and grilled meats. I am a woman of simple pleasures. And I'm pretty sure that if Ben Franklin were still alive he would wholeheartedly approve of my plans to celebrate. That being said, another 4th of July tradition…
3 Things: Camping

3 Things: Camping

I have a romanticized idea of camping. In theory, it sounds like a lot of fun. You, the great outdoors, roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over an open fire. Eating your body weight in s'mores. Sleeping in a sleeping bag, gazing up at the stars as you drift off to sleep. What could go wrong? I've only been camping twice…
