Alice Cooper Has a Tail...But I Cushioned The Madness With a Little Zac Efron Love

High School Musical is one of my most favorite movies ever. I love all 3 of them. I know all the songs by heart and am not the least bit bashful to admit that I might even know all the choreography to the dances. Because I like to dip into my inner 13 year old like that. And also because Troy Bolton is cute. Really. No shame here.

So, when I was staring the clock face in his eye today watching the seconds tick down to summer...this is precisely what I thought of...



...and I may or may not have sang this all day long.

Intertwined with this song....




(I will say that I chose this version of the song because it was slightly more G rated than the other choices I had....even though Alice Cooper's tail and the eyeliner that reminded me of Adam was slightly disturbing.)

So all this singing helped pass the time to when the clock ticked 3:15, and summer officially started!!!

That's right!

Summer!

Flip flops. Sunshine. Tan lines. Clean laundry. Cooked dinners. And I'm so ding dang happy about this whole thing, that I'm not even dreading swim suit shopping on Tuesday!

We have tons of things to do on our summer list, and though it seems really busy, it is just a different kind of busy for me. Because summer busy means spending long lazy days at the lake. And peanut butter and honey sandwiches at the park. And nursing sunburns while slurping popsicles. And finding new freckles that have popped out on Sawyer's nose. And washing beach towels and swim trunks more often than any other load of laundry. And fighting the dog for the burgers that just came off the grill. And smelling like coconut.

Summer...I'm so glad you are here.

~~~~~~~~~~~

On a totally different note....it is time for ASK AMBER ANYTHING!!! Last week's edition was lots of fun, and you guys had some really good questions! Looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeves for me this week. If you missed the first installment, you can check it out here. Leave me a question (remember...it can be anything...but please keep in mind this is a G Rated show), and I'll give you an answer. It may not be the right answer, but it will definitely be an answer.

I'll take questions until Sunday afternoon. So hit me with your best shot!

Looking forward to it....

I know you're not big on healthy stuff, but do you like any veggies?

And what did you think of the bear in your town this week...think he stopped at Sonic for a DPDP?

BTW, my kids were singing that song ALL MORNING!

Elizabeth said...

Summer is here, finally! It's the best kind of busy. And I love smelling like coconut.

Hmmm. . . I wonder what your favorite movie is. And your favorite musician. And your favorite food. I just wonder all of your favorites, so would you share a few?

Jessica said...

I'm wondering which Kline sister is your favorite? Just kidding. I know it's me.

I want to know where you came up with the pineapple diet DP? I was a carhop all through college and saw some pretty crazy concoctions. I think I remember that a chocolate DP is supposed to taste like a tootsie roll.

Kendra said...

Sorry, but I can't believe Alice Cooper was on the Muppet Show! That is so totally cool!!!!

Tiffani said...

as if there could even be another reason for me to love you...you know all the lyrics and possibly choreography to ALL HSM's??!! ME TOO!! :) Bet on It! ;)


On that note, I'll ask this...

Do you have a fave kids SHOW to watch (um, y'know you DID mention Hannah Montana) with your boys?

Cathy said...

If and when we meet next month (that is, if I haven't scared you off by then.) where should we meet, what should we talk about?

...I'm thinking some place noisy, as to drown out the laughter, and some place with a wide open space so we can practice our HSM dance moves...

I heart HSM, too, and other tween movies. I'm not ashamed to say it.

I like Alice Cooper. Hope we can still be friends.

Two piece or one? On the swimsuit thing.

Mich said...

Waiting to see if I know all the answers to the questions...

Have a great weekend!

Jessica said...

So I found your blog whilst I was bloghopping one day, and have become a regular reader. I think I actually laugh out loud everytime! So my question to you is: Do you mind if I add ya to my blog roll?

Jessica =)

Gretchen said...

Happy coconut-smelling-popsicle-slurping summer to you, too!

My question: Do you have a fun hangout or go-to evening plan when you get a date night? A favorite restaurant, perhaps?

And, IYO, what is the ideal number of swimsuits one should own in her summer wardrobe?

Lori Motl said...

Ahhhh....summer. Two more weeks until the official start for the Motl's, but we do have some serious holiday weekend partying to do.

My question: Where's your favorite place to get flip-flops? What is your boys go-to summer movie?

PS...know that tears are flowing here. Joshy is now kindergarten status, too. *sniff-sniff*

Kellie said...

Yay Summer!

I loved your list of summer loves....made me so thankful (again) that its finally here!

mimi said...

Not sure if this has been asked...what's your favorite shampoo?
