Its Summer Time

…and I don’t care what the calendar says.

$8 beach chair, origially $20+ from Target.  

On March 31, I got to lay out in this pink beauty in 84 degree sunny weather. 

Excuse the GIANT sweat marks… I do sweat when I sunbathe, but not that much.  I was particularly sweaty because I had just worked out at the downtown Y in these fine shorts:

Yellow Nike mesh short shorts, 4.29, also from Goodwill.

Sorry about the blurriness of the second picture, but I had to get the side view to show you those neat white stripes….and I dont mean the band:)  Jack White is not hanging out on my shorts.  As awesome and weird as that would be.

These yellow shorts complete the outfit with my bright orange top wonderfully, don’t ya think?  If the gym decided to have brightest workout outfit contest, I’d surely win with this.  And I can sleep well knowing that. 

You can also see that I moved my gym picture taking into the bathroom this time.  I don’t want to get a reputation…  unless that reputation is ‘girl that wears the brightest oufits’ of course:)

Now I would have loved to have laid out at the rooftop pool after my workout, but something I don’t get about Tennessee is they regularly do not open most outdoor pools until Memorial Day.  This would be appropriate in my home state, of Conecticut, but not in TN!! It has regularly been 80 degrees by the end of March since I moved here 2 1/2 years ago.  I don’t know if the pool keepers and powers that be are shocked and surprised each year when this warm weather ocurs, but I would really appreciate to maximize my sunbathing at the area pools, and they are not helping that cause:)

So, I worked out, laid out, and….ate out?   Well, no, I ate in, but it was still delicious:

The top picture is my whole wheat Trader Joe’s pita filled with turkey, spinach, avocado, hummus, and tomatoes:)  Mmmmmm heaven. in. my. mouth.  And stomach.  We’ll stop there:)

 The bottom picture is my instagram sponsored snapshot of my gobbled up pear and sandwich.  Which was sitting next to me in my beautiful pink beach chair. 

And that, my friends, is my recipe for a healthy, beautiful, Goodwill sponsored “summer” day. 

What are your plans for these warm, summer months?  Extra activity or extra relaxing? 

I say a little bit of both!!
