June Link-Up!

Laura over at Oh How Pintearesting has a link up party for J.U.N.E. going on at her blog....
so I'm linking up! 
She always has fun and creative things going on over there! 
(you can link up, too, check it out!)

This June link up is in honor of DADS and FATHER's DAY! See the neato mustaches? 
This is near and dear to my heart because I'm a COMPLETE Daddy's Girl.  
In fact, today I'm heading 100 miles west to pay my dad a visit (since school is out!). 
He had a birthday this week (86!) and I just miss him.  

My Dad is a go-getter, even at 86;  he loves life and his family more than anyone I know. 
He raised me in a gentle, loving manner that I can't even explain. He also spoiled me rotten but still taught me to be grateful for my blessings and to work hard for what I want to achieve.  Thanks, Dad!
(yes, he will probably see this or my mom will show him :) 
But I digress.... on with the link up!!

Jamming  to my summer playlist! 
Ok, I admit it, I'm beyond obsessed with my iPhone.  Equally as obsessed with making playlists for every ocassion under the sun.  So of course, I have a summer playlist with my most FAVORITIST songs of the moment :)  including a hodge podge of music that makes me happy AND some cliche' summer classics.  Beautiful Day by Joshus Radin, Lego House by Ed Sheeran, Downtown by Lady Antebellum, Just Give me a Reason by Pink, It Keeps Rainin'  (Fats Domino remade by Robert Plant!) just to name a few.   
Oh Wait- the cliche' summer classics! Fun, Fun, Fun by the Beach Boys, Two Pina Coladas by Garth Brooks, Summer Breeze by Seals & Croft, Toes by The Zac Brown Band and the list goes on

Unwinding in the pool! 
It's the only way to be outdoors in the Louisiana summer! You could DIE out there!  
5 years ago we built a pool.  It's a pain in the butt but we love it! 
You can find ME ..with BOOK.... and ICE COLD BEVERAGE.... on float... in that pool.  
Except today. 
I'm nursing a wicked sunburn from too much unwinding in the pool  

Needing nothing!
At risk of boring you to death,  there's nothing I need!  School is out.  My family is well.  My kids are happy.  I'm holding my breath and counting my blessings and I need nothing else.

Excited about a summer full of fun and relaxation! 
Even though I'm doing a little speech therapy this summer- the mission for summer is to is to have fun and relax! We have a couple of little trips to the beach planned ( I love living on the gulf coast!) in addition to a whole lot of bumming around, movie watching, pool lounging, book reading, friend visiting, flip flop shopping, snowball eating, and well, you get the point.  Oh! and Tpt activity making! I have some new stuff in the works :)

What about you?  What's your plans for JUNE?  
Tell me , tell me!
