Well, it has been a long time since I’ve posted anything.  In large part that had to due with it being summer.  I have to say it was hard for me to actually sit in front of a computer and write when the sun was shining and the warm weather was calling my name.  That is why I wanted to devote this post to the Best 3…Things about Summer!

No matter where you are in the world, the fact that summer has a power over people.  A way to make us feel better.  I don’t know whether it is the weather (and all the warm days and nights), the longer days (that is always a bonus) or could it be the fact that we are able to get away from our day to day lives and take vacations or just extra long weekends.

So, here are the Best 3…Things about Summer!

1.  BBQ

2.  Just Being Outdoors

3.  Sandals

Yes, BBQ is my number one choice as the best thing of summer.   For me, I don’t think I turned on my oven all summer.  All that meal planning that needs to take place during the year – out the door when summetime arrives.  I always know what I’m having for dinner – BBQ!  It’s great, easy and tastes so amazing.  Aaaahhhh my mouth is watering as I write this.

 

My second choice is the ability to just be outdoors.  The warm weather allows you to do so much things outside and that is what summer is meant for.  Road trips, camping, lounging on the beach, going for a swim and whatever else you like to do.  That is why it is my number two choice.

My last choice could have easily been number one.  Summer and sandals go together like salt and pepper.  Being able to always wear them, never having your feet confined to shoes and sox, getting pedicures…thanks to summer for the sandal!  Whatever preference of sandal you have (and yes, as many other women, I have a large amount of sandals that are in my closet and I’m not going to feel guilty because I wear them all!)

It has been a while since I’ve had a new post.  Life has been a little crazy and my mind just wasn’t into my blog.  However, I am back and have a plethra of new topics that I can’t wait to share.  One topic in particular is the exciting new movies that I am so excited to see.  Let’s face it, I have been a little disappointed in some of the movies that have been coming out lately and haven’t been not that excited to go to the movies (except The Avengers – really enjoyed that movie) and spend a lot of money.  That feeling has changed lately because I caught a few new movie trailers that have made me soooo excited.

So, here are the Best 3…Movies (that I’m  excited to see):

1.  Anna Karenina

2.  The Bourne Legacy

3.  Total Recall

Anna Karenina has been made into a few movies before but not like the one that will  be coming out and starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson.  I love this book.  It has everything – drama, romance/epic love, sadness/depression, tragedy and so much more.  The minute that I saw the trailer – I was hooked.  It just looks grand and just what a period piece should be (did I mention that I love any period piece!!!  They are my favourite movie) and combined with this book, I just know it will be magical and spectacular.

The second best movie that I am looking forward to is the new installment of The Bourne Legacy.  Since I really enjoyed the first set and since I have such a crush on Jeremy Renner (just look at his amazing arms) – I’m excited for him to take on this role.  I love this type of action film and I love that Rachel Weisz.  They will be the best coupling!

My last movie is Total Recall.  I have seen the original but I am totally interested in the remake/update version starring my favorite actor Colin Farrell (honestly he is another gorgeous actor who I have a crush on…I think its because he is Irish).  Anyway, it looks awesome and just jammed packed with action and will be worth the movie ticket (and popcorn price) to see it.

This is a post that I have been wanting to do for some time.  I waited this long because I really wanted to get a sense of what was out there.  I should say that every blog that I have looked at and been following are great.  So much diverse ideas, lives and general interest out there.  If there are people who are not out there blogging…they should be.  I also find it an awesome form of therapy – just getting my ideas down, writing about the things that I like best…it liberating and I’m glad that I started (because now I know I will not stop).  Also blogging literally get me away from the TV and all the bad habits that I want to get rid of in my life.

As I write this post, I know that the three WordPress blogs that I put down today will always be a best but I know that as I continue my journey in blogging and as I read more and more blogs, this best 3 might change from week to week, month to month, year to year.  So for this particular post, on today’s date, the blogs that I believe are the best have been included (there are so many honorable mentions that I just couldn’t list them all but I definitely following them).  To me these blogs represent a good cross-section of life and so much more.

So, here are the Best 3….WordPress Blogs:

1.  Bucket List Publications  http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/

2. Adventures for a Life You Love http://adventuresforlife.wordpress.com/

3.  Make Something Mondays! http://makesomethingmondays.wordpress.com/

My first choice is a blog that everyone should check out.  It is a posy about bucket lists but so much more.  It is amazing the things that people have done and really let’s you dream and think about your own bucket list.  I am one of the people out there that has yet to create one but after reading this blog, I think I need to write my own.  This awesome blog is also now choosing lucky people to actually fulfill their some of their bucket list items…

The second blog is one that I really like…especially the title.  Just read it and I guarantee you will smile at the quotes and sayings – especially the post about “What Fo You Do”.  It is just a great idea.

My last choice is Make Something Mondays!  This blog is full of great and awesome do-it-yourself projects (and a few other topics).  It is a fun blog and just a nice break to read these (and realize you might be crafty after all and that it really isn’t that hard).

What blogs do you think should be included? Leave a comment and let me know!
