5 Things I Will Miss About Summer Linky

Joy of Kindergarten is hosting a Linky Party about "5 Things I Will Miss About Summer Vacation!"  I can't believe another year is starting, and another summer is ending.  This will be my 6th year of teaching, and that is crazy to me.  How did I go from having no experience to having 5 years under my belt, in what seemed like no time at all?

I am going to use pictures that I find off of Pinterest, so I can link back to the picture to ensure I am not stealing anyone's photo. :)

1.  Nail Polish

Summer means I can actually have my nails painted without having sharpee or tempera paint added as additional designs on my nails.  I have really liked getting "gel nails" the last couple of times too.  The polish doesn't chip and lasts as long as your nails grow out!

2.  Coffee Dates

Summer means I have all of the time in the world to hang out, and catch up with friends over a cup of coffee.  I love going on walks, sipping on an ice tea or coffee and just spending quality time with adults (not 5 year olds... :)

3.  Blogging

I am actually going to miss having all of the free time to blog and make things for my TpT Store.  It gets crazy once school starts and having to juggle all sorts of responsibilities.  I will miss having time to blog and blog stalk!

4.  Vacationing 

I just blogged about my vacation to NYC and DC.  It has been great getting time to travel this summer, seeing new things, meeting new people, visiting friends, spending time with family, and just having fun!

5.  Crafting

I feel like I have had the opportunity to get several good hours of crafting in the summer (I didn't make this, it is just from my Craft Goodies Pinterest board).  I don't want that to end! ;)

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer, if you have any days left!  Link up and share your favorite parts of this summer. :)

  5. I have loved crafting this summer! I didn't realize how relaxing it is! I even took on the challenge of designing and making our wedding invites/rsvp cards! And I loved it! If I could make a full time job out of crafting I totally would!

    Coffee dates is second my my soon-to-be-summer-misses!

  6. I can only grow my nails in the summer. I already have them breaking all over the place from getting my room ready. I wish I could keep up with them all year-they look so nice painted. :)
