Thinking of Summer: Allllll The Summer Things

hello june bugs! i didn't really get why june bugs were called that until this year. i hadn't seen a single june bug tryin to sneak into my garage until june arrived. then it just clicked. weird, i know. i just associated them with summer, but now i understand where their name came from. they are also like the least bug that i am scared off. and piper loves chases after them. anyways, i'm not hear just to chat about june bugs. although, i'm sure i can do some research if y'all would prefer that over today's topic. which is SUMMER of course. the very first day of summer 2017 was on tuesday. i meant to have this post ready then but i got busy chatting with some folks here at the salon and just didn't have time during the three hours i was here. but anyways, i thought i would show off some fun instagram posts that have been getting me excited for summer. i promise you won't regret reading this one because it's literally such a fun post and i'm sure you'll be ready for a good summer vacay by the end. 

but first, check out my other insta-posts like this:

as you'll notice these are all accounts i follow on instagram. i follow new people every week, and i'm always finding new people who posts some pretty amazing things. like all these summer pics...

now, i really hope your as excited as i am that summer is finally here and ain't leaving us anytime soon. everything i listed above are just some of the things and reasons why i love summer so much. yesterday i got in this summer bikini from this site. i also got in this fun summery beach towel from this site along with this beachy tv show ordered from this site. so yeah, i've gotten really into the summer spirit! i'm clearly not playing games when it comes to preparing for summertime. i mean i'm already addicted to these fruity popsicles. literally i am addicted. i can't wait to get off work in ten minutes and head home and eat allllll the fruit bars. i wanna try every flavor. except the coconut ones-i ain't about that life. these are the ones i've tried so far... 
if i had to pick a favorite flavor it would definitely be the watermelon, hands down. no contest. but i love watermelon, like anything so i may be biased. but in all seriousness though these fruit bars are THE BEST "popsicles" i have ever had in my entire life! don't run, don't walk but speed your way to the grocery store right now and get you some boxes of these babies a.s.a.p. quick! stop reading and go right now. no regrets, baby. these will change your life. i will definitely be trying alll the flavors. cept that damn coconut of course. bleck. i hate coconut. anyways, i have less than thirty minutes so i better quit talking about snack foods and wrap this up. 
how's your summer going so far? i hope you're livin it up. i shole am! peace.
"don't be messing with me, lee. i will slap you so hard you'll end up in the ming dynasty. i mean it, man. i'll bitch-slap you back to bangkok. big party? okay, well, let's go party then."
