Spring Fever & Summer Excitement

I got my hair color touched up on Thursday.

I was in need of a little springtime freshening.  The ole roots were talking to me and I didn’t like what they had to say.

Much better!

Last week I did a big post on all the Hair Products I’ve been using and loving, too, in case hair talk is your thing.

The weather has been gorgeous here…

…and I’d be lying if I said going to the beach, pouring a margarita or sex on the beach

…and blowing off all responsibilities doesn’t sound kinda fun.  Spring fever, I think!   Or would that be summertime fever?

But since I have to work, be a mommy, and have real life stuff to get done, that beach day is going to have to wait til I am on vacation.   But that’s coming up!

No sex on the beach today, just salad.   <— I think I’d prefer the former but the later was my reality.

And I nibbled on a Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Snack Bar

From my last post, thanks for telling me about your Bests.  And your beater licking stories.  And yes, licking frosting from beaters is a-okay in my book. I mentioned at the bottom of the post what I had actually made for all the inquiring minds who asked.   And, yes, it was amazing.

And congrats to the coconut oil give away winner, too!


1. Do you have plans for the weekend?

I do, but they involve working.

When I’m not working, I’d like to spend some time in the kitchen creating, making, baking, and then photographing the finished results.

Then again, parking my butt outside and working on my tan and reading a book sounds pretty great.  But I will be doing that soon.

2. Do you get Spring Fever?  Or have Summer Fever?  What are you looking forward to this summer?

I guess the appropriate term may be Summer Fever since spring is here and summer is almost here.

I love spring and summer because…

Eating sushi outdoors with the family is great

Going out for drinks is fun!


And pool meetups with friends are awesome!

I actually just came across my Summer Highlights 2010 PostThat I forgot I wrote.  Whoops.

What are you looking forward to about summer?  Any fun things, events, or trips planned?

  3. Your hair looks great:) Enjoying the Great San Diego weather this weekend

  4. The color looks great! Agreed on the beach, soon. Hey, you’re in San Diego and can go when you want. :-) Great eats.

    1. Yes, cleaning, bday parties, hanging out with friends and cleaning.
    2. Yes, so frustrating when the weather is starting to look spring like, but not warm enough to wear spring clothes. Thankfully it is now!

  5. I don’t get Spring fever, but I totally get Summer fever!! I think it’s because Spring in Oregon just means cold and rain. I look forward to warmer weather, finally seeing the sun and trips to the beach. This Summer we’re also planning on hitting Vegas at some point, and I can’t wait!

  11. Working this weekend. Right now, in fact. On a coffee break, reading blogs. Hair looks great! You look like such a California girl with your beautiful blonde hair and tan skin. I love it. Everyone here is so pasty white from winter, it’s nice to see someone with a glow!

    Looking forward to summer? You bet I am. Spring/summer fever for me starts every year around…oh October or so. Ha. I’m not a lover of winter, but summer is almost here, so hooray for that.

  13. Hooray for getting your hair done! Looks good. I always look forward to hair appointments. Today was a total beach day here too. BUT we had lots to catch up on around the house. We compromised by making it an outdoor work kinda day mostly (worked on the lawn, garden, plants, etc). I always get spring and summer fever. No part of me enjoys cold or even chilly weather. I’m all about flip flops and sun dresses! The rest of the weekend? Probably more to dos, a little shopping (the man needs some new clothes) and cooking/baking
