This or That Summer Edition

Happy Birthday week to me! I thought I'd kick things off by playing a summer version of one of my all time favorite games "This or That." The rules are really simple; you either pick this or that, never neither, and never both.

1. Ocean or Pool? Pool hands down! I live at the beach so maybe that has something to do with it, but I am just not a fan of sand at all. Plus I like knowing I'm swimming in clean water not filled with fish or plants.

2. Beach Vacation or Wilderness? Beach, even though I don't want to actually get on it I really do love the water. Beach towns usually have lots of cute little shops and great restaurants. I don't think there are many things more relaxing than sitting on a patio by the water watching the sunset with a tropical drink in hand. Plus as my mother always says "my version of camping is staying at a hotel without a pool."

3. Watermelon or Strawberries? Strawberries. Sometimes the texture of watermelon freaks me out plus I think you're more likely to get an under ripe watermelon than strawberry.

4. Bikini or 1-Piece? Bikini. This has been the biggest change for me in the past few years. I hated to wear anything other than a 1-piece for the longest time because I was always worried about it coming off and flashing everyone. But now I just opt for a bikini with a little more structure and coverage and feel great.

5. Lemonade or Iced Tea? Iced Tea, assuming it's sweet tea. If not, than eww and lemonade.

6. Hotdogs...Grilled or Over the Fire? Grilled is literally the only way I'll eat a hotdog. The more burn marks the better!

7. Hat or Sunglasses? Sunglasses because my eyes are super sensitive to the sun. I do love a great beach hat though and when you've got pool hair there's nothing better than a baseball cap. My general rule for sunglasses are the cheaper the better!

I lost these perfect for summer earrings about a week after taking this picture and I'm still so upset 

8. Windows Down or AC? I'm sorry but how is this even a question, obviously AC. Anyone who says different clearly lives in a magical place without bugs

9. Tanning Lotion or Sunscreen? Sunscreen #PaleandProud I don't leave the house without some type of sunscreen moisturizer on my face. You can keep your bronzed skin and I'll keep my not wrinkly version.

10. Baseball Game or Concert? This is probably the toughest one, but I'm going to say concert because than it'd be inside. I love baseball, but I much more enjoy it in the spring before its boiling hot out.

11. Ice Cream or Popsicle? popsicle! I'm dying to try making my own boozy version for a day by the pool. Popsicles just seem lighter and a more heathy treat for summer.

12. Fireworks or Fireflys? Fireworks. I'm like a little kid when it comes to these I'm always mesmerized and could watch for hours.

13. FlipFlops or Bare Feet? Flip Flops; I don't like to be bare foot. Plus it's way too hot to try and walk around without something between your sole and the hot enough to cook an egg sidewalk.

14. Water Ballons or Squirt Guns? Water Balloons. They're probably more dangerous and take more time to put together but I think the effort is worth the fun. I think it's so funny because for some reason nobody ever has very good aim and you'll end up hitting someone on your team.

PS: I'm borrowing this version from Abby, so hop over and see her answers to play along too!

  1. Happy Birthday week! :) Totally agree, I would pick tea over lemonade for sure, but ONLY if it's good old Southern sweet tea! And same with sunglasses, my eyes are SO sensitive so if I am outside during the day I have shades!

  2. Your answers had me laughing- so glad you did this tag too! We think alike on a lot of these options. :) Enjoy your birthday week!!!

    xo Always, Abby
