Summer Memories

I’ve been tagged by The Entertaining House (great blogger) on favorite summer memories. So, here it goes:

Favorite Summer Movie – You may laugh at this, but I’d have to say "Dazed and Confused." Set in the summer of 1976, it focuses on a group of high school kids who are about to be seniors and some who are about to be freshmen. It’s hilarious.

Favorite Summer Cocktail – Mojito (especially the ones made at the Roadside Café in the Outer Banks)

Favorite Summer Song – "Red Red Wine" by UB40

Favorite Summer Outfit – Anything seersucker, sundresses

Favorite Summer Reading – Novels by Anita Shreve make for a good summer read, as does anything by Penny Vincenzi or Pat Conroy. I also enjoy some classic W. Somerset Maugham during the summer.

Favorite Summer Moment – Lying on the beach, hearing the waves crash, knowing that I don’t have to be anywhere but there. I also like dusk when you can hear the crickets, see the lightning bugs and hear kids in the neighborhood playing hide-and-go-seek or freeze tag. That’s quintessential summer to me.

I now tag these following fabulous blogs to offer up their favorite summer memories:

Also, a reminder that you have until 5 p.m. today to enter the Southern Living cookbook giveaway. It's full of amazing recipes and would make the perfect addition to any cook's kitchen! Little Miss E. will help me draw the winner. Stay tuned this week for the announcement!

Love your list and I think it is perfect that you wrote Dazed and Confused. I saw this summer memories tag on another blog a few weeks ago and immediately thought of this movie...."alright, alright, alright."

I love Pat Conroy too and you know being an SC girl you either love him or hate him.

Thanks for the tag...I will hop on this.

I just realized that I don't know if I ever entered your contest...OMG. I must hop on that!

Have a great day and thanks for sharing.
