Surfin' USA

SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE!!!

(and no I will not be surfing in the USA...I'm a beach gal)


I just can't say that enough. I love the longer days where we can rush home from work, round up the neighbors, and get several games of cornhole in before the street lights come on. Then it's inside to throw some dogs and burgers on the grill because it's already 9;30pm and we're all dying from starvation!

It's also time for the annual Fredstrom trip to the beach. For the third year in a row, we've been lucky enough to have some awesome friends willing to "beach it" with us. We're heading to Ocean City tomorrow night for a long weekend...and we've been counting down the days for over a week now. We have both been really busy with work, tying up loose ends so we can enjoy the sand and the surf. Come Wednesday at 7pm, it's time to hit the road and leave it all behind, with a lot of beer, sun lotion, and Maker's Mark!!

With the longer hours in the day, we're also finding more time to work on my golf skills. Jason is the most patient teacher in the world...especially considering how impatient I am! I've been knocking them out at the driving range for 3 years now, and we're getting to close to me actually setting foot on my first tee! I think that the NEW CLUBS we bought for me last night will help out too!! I can't remember their name right now, so I don't have a pic or link for you...but they are amazing! Thanks to DH for supporting me in this endeavor...and for helping me become more patient in what is probably the most frustrating sport ever!

I don't have any knitting pictures to update because they are all surprises for my wonderful pregnant friends. Most of them know that I'm making them something, but I don't want them to know anything else. I hope to get a bit more done on the first gift while at the beach...which should make for some really funny pictures!!!

I can't wait for Ann to find out if Noah is going to have a brother or a sister because I'm DYING to knit something pink!!!! Of course if it is a brother for Noah, my needles will be clicking happily along with the thoughts of playing Thomas with this nephew too...but I'll blame my bro-in-law for the whole lack of pink on my needles!!!

You know my thoughts on that one. I have about as much say in whether we have a boy or girl as a guy shooting a shotgun has in which individual shot pellet hits the center of the target.

If you don't like that analogy, how about I have as much control as a guy releasing a flock of race pigeons has over which one gets to the finish line first. The fitness of each individual bird is important, but prevailing environmental conditions can make the difference too, and that I can lay all at Ann's feet. ;-)

Finally, I'd better make the obligatory "I'll be happy either way" statement.
