ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY!!!!

IT'S A PARTY.....I LOVE PARTIES!!!!!!!!

Goodness gracious....where do I begin and what do I say??

I am fairly new to this blogging phenomenon, but have really enjoyed it so far......it's a great way for me to tell some of my silly and odd stories, wax poetic about happenings in my life, express my LOVE and excitement about the Lord and just act completely random...hehe.. :)

Just to give you the low-down on me and my life.....

My name is Summer.....I am an only child (no, that doesn't mean I'm spoiled rotten......well, I'm not rotten at least) My parents have raised me in the most loving and nourishing environment I could possibly imagine and they will celebrate their 34th anniversary this year.



This is me with my parents at a wedding last year.......yes, I was Maid of Honor.....and she likes blue.... :)



Not only do I love parties....but, I LOVE playing dress-up too!!!



I'm just a total goofball...... who LOVES guacamole!!!




The birds really took a liking to me that day.....


I live and work in the heart of a busy city, but never let stress enter my life. I love volunteering and am involved in my church.

Thus far, I have not been blessed with a husband or kiddos, but I know that the Lord has a plan for me and I will be patient....(umm.....God? umm...yeah.....did ya forget about me?? Hellooo...) Oh wait...patience....ugh....that's right.... :)

I am an eternally positive person and always seem to be in a good mood....this seems to irk many people and consequently makes it even more enjoyable for me.....(hehe..I'm a stinker)

OH...also...I graduated from culinary school, so I am officially a chef, but don't actually work in that field. But, cooking is a love of mine and I LOVE sharing recipes, so please feel free!!!

Well....I'm excited about all the reading I'll be doing over the next week.....

PARTY ON!!!!!!!

**Prize List: 58, 119, USC-17, USC-36, USC-58, USC-40, 19, 50, 68, 45 (in this order)
Thanks!! :)

Hi Summer! Great name don't you think? :)
My husband is a great cook but I'm more into baking. I've thought about becoming a Pastry Chef. Maybe some day.

Hey Summer .. Thanks for stopping by earlier today.. Was looking around and I see you're a Twilight fan .. My 15 year old has been hounding me all day to go stand in line tonight for the 12:01am release of the dvd. It's not gonna happen lol. She's just gonna have to wait for Target to open at 8am tomorrow. Happy UBP'ing.

Hi Summer! I waited for God to bring the right man into my life...for much longer than I wanted to wait. I must say...IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT. Don't be in a rush. God loves you and the man He has for you. Keep you eyes on Jesus and follow Him. All in God's time.

Your name truly fits you! Your blog and your smile are both sunny and warm! It is really amazing to "meet" a chef. I am completely clueless in the kitchen! I wish they had cooking intervention programs!

I love the name summer,
actually wanted to name my
youngest daughter that because its
short for my maid name, but the
good old hubby didnt see it, so!

Anyways I plan to use that name in
a book, to be written, but I got
to finish another one for now!

Hop on over to my page sometimes
would love to have you.

Hello from UBP 2009. You know, I thought about culinary school, but I ended up as an English Major. Now I'm wondering if it's too late to go back. ;)

I'm more of a confectioner though.

Nice to meet you!
