Hot Summer Hot Sponsors

oh hello there :)
It's Monday and if you're off today theeeeeen I hate you.
jk. maybe. 

Like I mentioned in my vlog, I'm sure there are no guys reading
this blog. However, if there are....take note!
Gorgeous right?
My dad got my mom a bouquet for each day he was out of town
last week. How sweet is that?!

I can't believe it's already July!
Summer feels like it's flying by.
Plus, it's been a bajillion degrees everyday
and we've had 2 tornado warnings in less than a week!
what the heck, virginia?!
I'm so random, but admit it, you love it :)

I've got some amazing/fabulous/gorgeous sponsors this month so 
make sure you go check out their blogs and show them some love!

Joanna @ ModaMama

:: random fact :: I've been doing martial arts for 12 years. 
So yes, I do know how to properly wield a Samurai sword, why do you ask?

 :: favorite thing about summer :: The heat! I'm so sensitive to the cold 
that I'm freezing from about mid-September to about mid-May.

Brie @ sophistifunk

:: random fact :: I'm 24 years old and have an aunt that's younger than me
and a 2 year old brother. Weird, right?

:: favorite thing about summer :: Two words: Pool. Days.

:: random fact :: I lived in Spain for 4 months! I studied in Barcelona
during college and headed off without knowing anyone, ever being to 
Spain or Europe, and with seriously mediocre spanish skills. It turned out
to be one of the most amazing and best decisions I've ever made!

:: favorite thing about summer :: Seriously hard  to decide on just
one thing but I think I'm going to have to be cliche and say the beach. In New England
we only get 3 months of beach weather if we're lucky, during which I like to spend as much time 
as possible at our house in Cape Cod soakin' up the rays ;)

:: random fact :: I bought a car and didn't know how to drive it. 
Yep, I bought my car which was a 6-speed, without knowing how to drive a stick. 
Needless to say, I went through a clutch pretty quick! I wouldn't exactly recommend that 
method for purchasing your next vehicle!

:: favorite thing about summer :: THE LAKE! I was raised on Norris Lake (in Norris, TN)
My family doesn't have a house there anymore but we are lucky enough to still have a boat
that's up there. Every single free minute of time I have is spent here in the summer. 

:: random fact :: I can touch my tongue to my nose and make bird noises 
like Kevin from Up :)

:: favorite thing about summer :: How much longer the days seem to last! I love being able 
to finish dinner and it still be light outside. I also love thunderstorms & fireflies :)

:: random fact :: I was once thrown on the mic with Miss Miami 2005, by Randy 
Jackson. We sang Christmas songs on the Grand Marshall boat of the Fort 
Lauderdale Boat Parade, and it tops my list as one of the best nights 
of my life, obviously.

:: favorite thing about summer :: I get so excited when I can put away my winter wardrobe! 
Colorado's winters have been mild lately, but you still have to layer to be prepared.
Now I just get to wear little sundresses everyday, and that makes my life. 

Katie @ Miss Dixie

:: random fact :: I studied abroad in Paris one summer in college, and got 
to work backstage at fashion shows. I still find it hard to believe, it was an 
experience of a lifetime!

:: favorite thing about summer :: You could say I love every bit of summer, 
but I love summer time foods- cook outs, fresh veggies and cold drinks!

I LOVE your randomness! Haha. This is so fun {as always}, and my new-to-me truck was a stick, too, but hubby didn't tell me until he already bought it! I haven't worn out the clutch, but I was definitely worried that I would! What a great group of ladies we have?! xoxo

Joanna said...

Thanks for the post! So glad to be here with all those lovely ladies!
