My summer will soon be coming to a close and work will start up again (only a week left). I’m anticipating a wonderful year. Not much has happened this summer but the hubs and I had multiple “mini”-adventures. I caught up on my reading, watched my Friends DVDs, one season at a time, went to more weddings than I can count on my one hand, and caught up with old friends.
I’m currently reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith, which I’m actually enjoying. Grahame-Smith is the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a book I also read. I like them both, but Abe has a slight edge. I love true stories! (wink wink)

Timmons and I had a great time attending the OC Fair, in Costa Mesa, together twice this summer. There’s nothing like going to the fair and enjoying chocolate covered berries or a caramel apple at the berry stand. We pass on all the gross fried stuff. I wonder what they’ll try to fry next year. Fair time is really the best time of the year for me. I love the Carnival of Products and the petting zoo. I can’t wait for July 2013, can it be July 2013 yet? Tim went a 3rd time to see Duran Duran, a concert I skipped out on. It was too hot and the idea of being on the lawn wasn’t too enticing. I saw them in 2003, at KROQ’s Inland Invasion, that’s enough.

It’s been extremely hot here this summer, so any way we can escape from the heat we do, even if that means sitting through a not so great movie. Has anyone see The Bourne Legacy? Movie time is always fun time, but I noticed we didn’t go so much this year.

I started working on my scrapbook. I’m not one for “scrapbooking”, actually I use another name for it. But these long hot summer days I had to find something to do with my time. My first scrapbook is almost finished and while it took me almost 3 years to complete, I find it a great accomplishment. Next I’d like to tackle a scrapbook of our dogs, and then maybe be more adventurous and try my hand at a wedding scrapbook. I don’t know, they take up a lot of time.

This summer I got to catch up with old friends I haven’t seen in years. That’s the great thing about Facebook, getting reacquainted with friends I haven’t seen in years. Oh how our lives have changed!
Since April, we’ve attended seven weddings. While each and every one was lovely in their own way, Tim and I are “weddinged” out and are happy to spend some quiet time, alone with our little loves.
I can’t say that this summer offered spectacular surprises or travel to exotic places, but it was still entertaining. Soon Tim and I will be accomplished ballroom dancers. OK, maybe not accomplished because were still in the beginning stages, but we can do a pretty mean cha-cha!

To quote American Pulitzer Prize winning writer Russel Baker; Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it. I concur. It’s been a very very hot summer!
Next month Tim and I will be headed to Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles, to the Funniest Orange County Housewives Comedy extravaganza in Orange County and on a Harbor Cruise of Long Beach (we got free tickets)!! Looking forward to September!!
Even though its been a very hot summer, it looks like you've accomplished quite a bit and have had a lot of fun along the way! Love the pics of Sam and Mia!! 🙂
Thanks for the comment!! It was a nice summer. I was less stressed than summers in the past. Things are finally getting back to normal.
