It’s halfway through May and already pretty hot here in Texas. Summer is pretty much here…. I am already living in flip flops, sandals and maxi dresses. I also have my favorite foods and music this time of year….watermelon, grilled corn, pasta salads, pina colada cake and chocolate delight dessert is a MUST have at our house!

Certain songs always bring summer memories –  some are memories from movies watched when out of school in the summer, some were played at the skating rink where I pretty much LIVED during summers and some are just always on the radio this time of year:

  • Summertime – Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince
  • I can’t wait – Nu Shooz
  • Higher Love – Steve Winwood
  • Cruel Summer and Venus – Bananarama
  • Rock The Boat – Aaliyah
  • Take My Breath Away – Berlin
  • Wipeout and California Girls-Beach Boys (I know it’s cheesy, but it’s summer!)
  • No Rain – Blind Melon
  • Two Princes – Spin Doctors
  • OPP – Naughty By Nature
  • All I wanna do – Sheryl Crow
