Favorite Things June Edition

Today, I am linking up with Ashley from Dancing With Ashley for her first Favorite Things link up.

I love so many things about June. I love that it's actually the first month of summer (even though I think summer starts in May), I love the warmer weather, I love the BBQ's, I just love everything about June. 

So... here are some of my favorite things from the month of June. 

1. The Weather
 I don't know about you, but to me 80-85 is the PERFECT summer weather. Last year, it seemed like it rarely got above 75 and I pouted wondering if we were ever going to have a summer. This year, it has already reached 100 here twice, which is very rare for the area I live in. I will take this weather over hot, sticky Missouri any day! Last time I went back to Missouri in the summer, I thought I was going to die of a heat stroke!

2. Kombucha
  If you haven't heard of Kombucha, you are missing out. This stuff is seriously A-freaking-mazing! I used to drink at least one cup of coffee every morning and at least 1-2 diet pepsi per day. This week, I've had 2 diet pepsi total and NO coffee. This stuff gives me natural energy, which is way better than any caffeinated drink. It also helps suppress my appetite. I am not very hungry and when I do eat, I get full really fast. 

3. So You Think You Can Dance
SYTYCD is probably my favorite reality competition show. I look forward to this show all year and as soon as it starts, I know summer is here. For some reason, SYTYCD is the sound of summer to me. So You Think You Can Dance... Dance... Dance... Dance... I feel sorry for Jeremy having to watch this with me (he actually really likes it), I jump around the room and twirl around pretending (keyword pretending) that I can dance. 

4. This Picture
    My friend Dianna and I watching Lonestar at the Sonoma-Marin Fair. I absolutely LOVE concerts, and summer is full of great concerts in the bay area. There's just something about being outside, listening to live music with a beer (or two) in my hand. 

5. Fresh Strawberries
  Fresh strawberries from the fruit stand here is one of my favorite summer treats. Growing up, my grandma always made strawberries and pie crust. That was her version of strawberry shortcake, and it is definitely my favorite way to have my strawberries.
