Official Goodbyes to Summer (involving pool-sitting, a great read, and an icy Diet Coke)

Just one.  But a good one, indeed.  


  1. That Dexter finale was out of control! After seeing Trinity so much, too, I almost expect him to be in a dark room when I enter. He's so scary! And WTF with the ending??

  2. Douche Pickle Drama? That sounds like a blog post in and of itself!

  3. So long summer!!!

    I watched 2 hours of Dexter this weekend...I can't wait to finish!

    And yay KATNISS! Glad you drank the KoolAid.

  4. cute post! dexter is amazingggg and thank god deb isn't so crass anymore!

    goodbye summer, hello fall :)

  5. you guys make me wanna watch dexter. and read that series. quit influencing me!!!

    although i think i'm going to give in on the book series...

    so long summer. you were too freakin' hot and i will not be sad to see you go!

  6. Ahhh, I loved Season 4 of Dexter. And honestly, I loved the ending too. I won't say why...but someone was getting on my nerves. :) I'm so excited for Season 5. Between the football, reading, movies and pool time, sounds like the perfect weekend!

  7. Ahhh, goodbye summer. Sounds like the perfect farewell to this blastedly HOT summer. Also, I love that you have an activity named for spying on your neighbors. So do we. It's like a hobby. I think this might be a sign that I'm an old boring person? This is depressing.

  8. Sadly, we have your Dexter hours beat! We watched the last 3 episodes of Season 3 on DVD, then found Season 4 OnDemand on Showtime and watched the first 10 episodes!!! We're extremely embarassed we spent so much of our weekend watching Dexter, but Season 4 has been so good we haven't been able to tear ourselves away.

  9. omg. hunger games = amazing. so addicting. could.not.stop.reading.

    ps...tipsy photobooks are awesome.

  10. ditto to the OMG about hunter games!!! best read of the whole summer!!!

  11. Oh, I love Dexter! I'm waiting for the entire season to come out on DVD (or On Demand) so I can watch them back-to-back-to-back-to-back straight through. I'll probably even have to take a day off work because I'll be so hooked and won't be able to leave my couch. Love that show!


happy little comments!
