1.  Snow Cones –  This summer we have totally rediscovered snow cones.  They are cheap, light and refreshing.  My favorite flavor so far this summer is orange creamsicle.  Orange and vanilla heaven. Yum.

2. The sound of locusts – Nothing says summer to me like the hum of locusts on a hot afternoon.  It makes me think of laying out in the backyard and swimming in friends pools.  That sound is so calming to me.  LOVE IT

3.  Horrible, guilty pleasure shows like Big Brother and Jersey Shore – a terrible, awesome time waster.

4.  Summer rain storms – We are having one of these as I type this.  The hot air has been replaced by not so hot air and moisture.  The smell of rain is delicious.

5.  Flip Flops – I have to admit that I am guilty of wearing flip-flops nearly year round.  When the temps start to go under the sixties I do put them away but I can be spotted wearing flops well into fall.

6.  Berries, watermelon, and summer squash – I am craving some fried summer squash.  Also, fried okra! Is there anything better? I still haven’t bought a watermelon this year but really need to.  There is nothing like a cold watermelon to cool you down and quench your thirst.

7.  Sleeping with my little, tiny plastic fan on –  The sound of it kind of lulls me to sleep at night.

8.  Early summer mornings – The temps are still bearable and the sun is not as blinding.

9.  Cute summer dresses – Perfect for wearing with flip-flops and so cool!  Great for when the thought of getting into heavy denim jeans makes you break out into a sweat!

10.  Homemade ice cream – My family hasn’t quite perfected the recipe and although the texture is off, the banana variety that I have grown up eating is still as yummy to me as it was when I was a kid.
