It's always Summer, back in Alabama

In the last 3 days I have taken a final, packed my dorm room, driven home 6 hours, unpacked and worked a full 8 hour day at work! My hands are stained with food coloring, so that means one thing: it's summer!
This summer I will be working to same job I had last summer - decorating cakes, garnishing desserts, helping out with kid's parties. I love what I do and I love the people I work for. It truly is a dream job.
All my best friends will be home, which makes me merry happy. This means sleepovers, Starbucks hangouts and just frolicking around random fields (I swear we are in college lol).
I also turn the big 2-1 in just a few days! I am quite excited about this. It kind of stinks that I'm the oldest though, so no one can go out with me to the bars. Though come to think of it, I'm not a bar-hopping type of girl. However, I can buy us wine for themed dinner parties! As a birthday gift my parents are taking me to Napa Valley and San Francisco for a week, because now I can legally taste the wine at the vineyards.
Also, for the summer I have already bought tickets to see Greg Laswell and the IMOGEN HEAP! I am ecstatic about this purchases :)
I'm only one day into my summer, and I think its shaping up to be a good one!
Here is my sunny summer playlist:
1. My Boys – Taken by Trees
2. The Summer – Coconut Records
3. Swing – Zero 7
4. Sweet Road – Animal Collective
5. Travel – Thao
6. I Sing I Swim - Seabear
7. Better Together – Jack Johnson
8. The Strums – The Dodos
9. Caterpillar Playground - Nurses
10. Summerboy – Lady Gaga
What are your plans for the summer?
