Linking Up to the Partaayyy

Windy Poplars

1. How do you most like to entertain during the summer (pool party, picnic, cookout, etc.)? - Or if your situation doesn't allow for entertaining right now, what do you look forward to being able to host?

Currently I just enjoy going out for coffee dates with friends or meeting up at the pool during the summer. At this point in my life I don't really host events, but I help my mom when we entertain people at our home {which usually entails making and serving dinner in our sunroom}. Some of my friends host cookouts and I attend, but being a vegetarian, I don't want to put myself in a position where I'd have to grill someone else's meat!!

When I'm older and living on my own, potentially in a city like Philly, I look forward to hosting my segment of our block party.

2. Do you have a favorite summertime dessert?

My favorite dessert is the same year~round, but I don't feel like such an idiot for ordering a cold dessert in the summertime as compared to the winter. My fave, of course, is the Mocha Java Cooler:

I also enjoy getting the Birthday Cake Remix at Coldstone Creamery and eating cold treats from our local, world~famous Kline's Dairy Bar.

3.What is your best outdoor summer date idea?

I've always thought it'd be SO NEAT to have a candlelit dinner on the beach...

or on a rooftop overlooking a city's downtown, cultural center, or coast...

Alfresco rooftop terrace dining with a hot tub included?? I think yes.. ;-)

4. Share any outdoor decorating tips/ideas you have...

I did not inherit my mom or grandpa's passion for gardening, but I've always thought that outdoor fireplaces are so charming, so I'd love to have one of those! Also, I loooove fountains and water gardens. If I live in the city when I'm older, I probably won't be able to have an extensive outdoor space, but a rooftop garden would be awesome! {I didn't realize I had such a rooftop obsession!} :-)

5. What will we find you wearing most in the summertime?

In the summertime, I really enjoy wearing sundresses and cabana dresses. This past winter I got into wearing leggings with my longer tunic shirts and shorter dresses, but with warmer weather coming, I'm excited to pull out my brightly~ and boldly~printed summer dresses.

This is me looking slightly windblown to say the least, but I'm wearing one my favorite summer dresses.

Join the party with Kristin at Windy Poplars!

  1. Hi Leah! Thanks for joining the party...I enjoyed reading your answers! Loved the rooftop date idea. How romantic! I also have a thing for outdoor fireplaces. Aren't they so cozy? Trying to figure out how we can safely get one onto our deck this year...hmmm. Hope you have a wonderful day!


Thank you for taking the time to muse aloud with me,
to share your heart
& allow your thoughts to become words.
