Since many of us are in the middle of a heat wave, thought I would make this weeks Friday Five a little summer-y!

1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why?
2. What's your favorite way to stay cool?
3. What's your favorite way to stay warm?
4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind?
5. Any major summer plans or projects this year?

1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why? I'm almost always cold so I rather be warm!
2. What's your favorite way to stay cool? Iced water and shade or fan/ac if indoors.
3. What's your favorite way to stay warm? Cozy pjs, warm blankets & snuggles.
4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind? Heat.
5. Any major summer plans or projects this year? Nope! Big Brother starts the 12th and that's my one summer ritual and the only thing I'll watch on tv (the one reality show I shamelessly watch). We have passes to 6 flags and we'll go do that but I can't do the rides. We'll probably take some day trips to zoo's, family bbqs and things like that but no major vacations planned.

1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why?

Wow I just tried to answer this both ways. I'm use to being cold but then I'm reminded of my scorching ride home everyday (one of my air vents is broken). I think I'd rather be too cold because being too hot makes me so irritated.

2. What's your favorite way to stay cool? Cool shower or a nice cold drink!

3. What's your favorite way to stay warm? Hoodie. There's a nothing like a hoodie on a cold day.

4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind? 100 degree weather! That's why I want to move somewhere where I can experiacne the 4 seasons.

5. Any major summer plans or projects this year? Well I just found out my husband got tickets to a 4th celebration at the Las Vegas COuntry Club and that looks like it will be fun. We're taking a trip late August for my half brother's wedding and then visiting DH's family in Ohio (it will be my 1st time there).

1. I would rather be too cold because I can always put on more clothes and love using a blanket!

2. I like to stay cool by taking my kiddos to the pool or sitting in the air conditioning and having a cool drink while reading a good book.

3. My favorite way to stay warm is putting on my comfy clothes and cuddling under a blanket while watching a movie and drinking cocoa.

4."Summer" makes me think of sunny days, fun, and relaxation!

5. We have lots going on this summer! Four weddings- including one of my nephews, which makes me feel old ( I was 12 when he was born)! Two are weekends away. We also just bought a new house and will hopefully be moving in August.

1. I think too cold...I get physically ill when I'm overheated. however, cold is also getting less and less tolerable in the last three years, so I'm not thrilled about cold either.
2. Nudity is my fave way to stay cool! lol. when that's not ok, I like lemonade and watermelon in the air conditioning.
3. To stay warm, I like blankets and soup and hand-knitted socks, and using my hubby to warm up my hands.
4. thanks to my 6yo, "summer" makes me think of Katy Perry's "California Gurls". it's her favorite song ever, and just sounds so summery, even if it weren't actually about summer.
5. Aside from the whole gestating thing, all our summer plans are annual things, so they don't feel big. birthday bbq's, fireworks for the fourth, a family breakfast, and Bear Lake in August with my mom's whole family.

Definately too cold. Because you can always bundle up with blankets and sweats but you cant get any more naked than naked lol

4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind? Beach! Oh, how I miss the beach. Moved from NJ to Colorado about 2 years ago and I sure do miss the Jersey Shore!

5. Any major summer plans or projects this year? I cant wait til my mom comes to visit me in the end of July!!!! I havent seen her in almost two years and it will be the best week ever!

1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why? Cold! I can always put more clothes on, get DH to cuddle, and start a fire. The heat affects me in so many ways, mostly due to autoimmune issues. I also just hate getting out of a shower to start sweating again!

2. What's your favorite way to stay cool? I'd love to have a pool!

3. What's your favorite way to stay warm? Blankets, sweaters, a fire, and doing unmentionable things with DH.

4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind? Heat. Misery. (Hahahaha I just don't love summer.)

5. Any major summer plans or projects this year? Helping DS2 recover from surgery; fundraising in the next couple of weeks to go to a medical convention for DS2; coming back and packing/sorting for a couple of weeks while organizing a cross-country move; settling in our new town; growin' a baby!
