TBB: August Asks

Happy Wednesday Friends!

I’ve enjoyed getting to know some of the ladies over at The Blended Blog with their August Asks Series. I loved the summer theme of the questions and thought I’d play along today. There is still time to linkup if you want to join in on the fun!

Pool, lake or ocean?  

It’s the first question and it’s already hard for me to choose lol. It’s no secret I love #lakelife during the summer since moving back to my hometown area. However, I am a HUGE pool person too! Nothing like a hot summer day by the pool, NOTHING!

Summer colors, blue green white

Camping, cottage or hotel?  

Cottage! I love a New England style cottage!


Favorite ice cream flavor?  

Chocolate with Chocolate sprinkles is always my go to. Strawberry is a close second when it comes to soft serve in the summer!

PJ’s, Nightgown, T-Shirt/Shorts or Birthday Suit? 

Definitely a t-shirt/shorts kind of girl

Fave Summer Beverage?  

White wine!

Would you rather be hot or cold?  

I always say cold. I HATE being hot.

Sandals with heels or flats?  

Heels (my absolute favs this summer)

Shorts or skirts? 

Shorts (I have too many colors)

Sit in the sun or the shade? 

I go back and forth between both

Water, tea, or soda (or as I would say – pop!)?  


Fave summer fruit, vegetable?  


Sunrise or sunset? 


Bike ride or walk?   


Winery or brewery?  


Garden or no garden? 

Garden, although I was much better last year tending to it

Big summer concert or music in the park?  

Big summer concert. Still waiting to go to my one and only this year over Labor Day Weekend to see these guys:

Fave cookout food?  

I guess some type of Macaroni Salad

Dine indoors or patio?  


Fave summer destination?  

Newport, RI

Big theme park or local carnival? 


Drinks blended or on the rocks?  

On the rocks, I want a margarita right now!

Popsicle of choice?  

An orange serbet kind

Hot Dog or Hamburger?


And there you have it…fun and easy summer questions! Can’t wait to read through more of everyone’s posts!

    Such a fun round up! As much as I love breweries, wineries definitely win and always have the best views! And I love lakes, beaches, pools, etc… gimme water to swim in and I’m happy but pools are definitely the best because no fish… or sharks! <3

    Pool days are so much fun! We are hoping to eventually get a pool ourselves. I love everything about sunsets and can’t get enough of them. Beautifully Candid

    These questions are fun! I’m so with you on rather being cold than hot. I hate being hot, and I get hot SO easy.

    I’m also a big pool person. I don’t want my pool to close!!

    We were able to go to Newport this summer and I love it there – definitely more of a winery fan as well! Looking forward to meeting tonight!
