1. It’s now June (woot!)… what plans do you have for the summer?
In a few weeks, we are headed to Napa Valley for my sister-in-law’s wedding. Andrew and I are both in the bridal party, and we are both really excited for the celebration (and the mini-vacation).  In case you aren’t jealous yet, drinks and dancing are taking place in this wine cellar:

I know. It’s fabulous. 

In mid-July my parents (or maybe just my mom, since my dad is scared of this dangerous beast)…

…are coming to visit us in Colorado. They miss us tons, but the real reason for the visit? To go see the final installment of the Harry Potter series together!!

In August, we are hoping and planning to get to NY/NJ for one of my best friend from college’s wedding to her college sweetheart. <3 It's going to be a lovely summer! 2. What is your favorite summer memory as a kid?
My favorite childhood summer memories revolve around the beach and family. I remember spending summer weekends out at my aunt’s house in the Hamptons, driving in the back of her truck to the beach, spending all day boogie boarding and all night by a bonfire with marshmallows. We used to have dinner at this restaurant call “The Dock,” where they serve the best fresh mussels and Elvis sandwiches. Sigh…

3. If wild animals could be made pets without fear of them ever being dangerous, what kind of exotic animal would you want as a pet?
My elephants!!

4. Is there anything about deployments that you do like? submitted by The Thrifty Military Wife
Being able to watch my shows.

5. I’m starting to run out of questions again… so please give me a question you’d like to see (off-the-wall will most likely make it because we seem to have used a lot of the “traditional” ones).
What is your favorite, most creative summer stay-cation idea? What is the best drink you’ve ever created yourself at Starbucks? What is your favorite alcoholic drink to order when you’re out?


  1. haha I love that your parents are coming to visit you mainly to see the final Harry Potter movie!!

    Napa Valley sounds and looks amazzzzzing!!!!

    Hope you have a great summer!
