Free 4 All Fridays - It's SUMMER!!!

Is it Summer where YOU live?




'Cause where WE live, it's in full-swing. We've broken out the swimsuits. We've reached the point where heat indexes are over 100 every single day. Our lows are now higher than winter highs. Heck, our lows are higher than my highest thermostat setting during the winter! IT.IS.SUMMER and IT.IS.HOT!!!










We've broken out our sandals (and put them on ourselves)!






If you live below the Mason-Dixon (oh yeah, we count ourselves differently when it comes to temperatures and humidity - for you yanks and Westerners that don't know), there's no denying Summer once it's here. (And I ASSURE you that it's LONG before the first official day of summer.) Might as well embrace it, love it, and enjoy it (with an ice cold drink, sunscreen, some shade, and a fan of course)!








In that vein, I thought I'd help one of you ladies (or guys?) embrace the Summer that's upon us!




FREE4AllFridays!







There's a straw handbag (lined in some cute pink fabric), a cute pink cooler-bag, a fabulous pink sunhat, a cool water bottle (with a freezable center so your drink stays cooler longer) and (because, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I am a bit of a sun-safety FREAK) my favorite non-greasy sunscreen!






If that doesn't get you ready to deal with the heat, I don't know what will!






So how can YOU win these wonderful gifts?



1.) Leave me a comment telling me your favorite Summer activities.



2.) Follow me and leave me a comment telling me you do.



3.) Go visit Mimi at He & Me + 3 and leave me a comment telling me you did.



4.) Blog about my giveaway and leave me a comment telling me you did.



5.) Promise me in a comment you'll wear sunscreen during at least ONE outdoor activity this weekend. (I wasn't kidding when I said I was a sun-safety freak!)






Love, Shipoopies, & LUCK!



Leslie

OK. Precious! And it is most definitely summer here, too! My favorite summer activity has to be swimming with the kids--I know it's not original, but we all love it so much! Plus--it's so hot and humid here that if you want to be outside at all, you HAVE to be in the pool!

Camily said...

Stopped by MiMi's!

Camily said...

Most definitely will wear sunscreen at the pool this weekend (I insist upon it, myself!)

Camily said...

I like sitting out on our swing in the evenings & reading the newspaper - once the day cools off. I'm not really a water bunny - althought I kinda wish I had a pool in our back yard :).

I've just started being more conscientious about sunscreen (yeah, I'm 46). And sadly it wasn't the thought of skin cancer that finally galvanized me. I have a long commute & my arms are getting tanned from the drive - but they look mottled & ugly. I want my white arms back! But I promise to keep using sunscreen even when I get my arms back to where I want them.

It is definitely hot here in KS. My favorite summer time activity is to let my kids play in a pool in our front yard.

I LOVE walking around Chicago with my little guy. We walk year-round here, but it's so nice in the summer to just get out with no real destination and enjoy the city!

Lucy said...

I follow you via Google.

Lucy said...

I visited Mimi

Lucy said...

As a fair-skinned redhead I don't leave the house without sunscreen, so I can easily promise this one!

Shawn said...

I'm doing a flip flop swap and Camily is my partner, that's how I found you...

My favorite summer activity is sleeping in! Luckily both of my girls enjoy the same thing!

Shawn said...

I've been a follower of Mimi's for ever! I'm behind in reading my favs so I missed her post sending me here. So that doesn't happen again I'm now a follower of your blog!

Shawn said...

Wearing sunscreen in central Floria is a must! Does it count if it's only an 8 and in an amplifier that I use while basking in the glory of the sun while at the beach?

Shawn said...

Just posted all about it and secretly hoping no one else tries to steal my prize!

Rhonda said...
