We wait all year to bask in these couple months of sun, smiles, and savory summer food, and yet it seems like when the season finally rolls around we find ourselves instead caught up in a whirlwind of errands, family responsibilities and work. What little time we get to ourselves is often spent crashed on the couch, desperately wishing we had the energy to throw on that little black dress and hit the town with the girls. Well, ladies, no more excuses! We've compiled a list of warm-weather activities that will spice up your life and give you that sexy edge that summer is all about.
Take a dip in a hot tub: There is little else that feels more cleansing or sensual than slipping into the frothing foam of a hot tub or bath. Take a load off one of these nights with a chilled glass of wine, your favorite summer suit, and some good company!
Explore an amusement park: Feeling like a teenager in love again may be just what you need to break out of the parent slump and reignite the flame between you and your hubby! A romantic round on the ferris wheel or a heart-pounding plummet from the highest roller coaster will help you rediscover your youth in no time!
Bar hop with the babes: We don't encourage dwelling in the past, but reliving one of your rowdy girls' nights out is the perfect way to ditch the stress and enjoy some time with the girls. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to show off that hot summer body you've been working on!

One lucky hand is all it takes to get you feeling like you're 21 all over again. For the perfect night of fun, just remember to keep those bets low and your spirits high, rather than vice versa!
Take a spontaneous road trip: Dig through those old boxes and find your cheesiest mix tape, ladies, because it's time to hit the road! Gather your friends for a quick weekend out of town, because nothing is as invigorating as a trip down memory lane! Check out that vineyard you've been reading about, or make an entrance at a Broadway show for an adventure that is sure to put the spring back in your step.
Discover a new exercise class: Falling into the same old workout routine day after day can definitely kill your motivation and your confidence.
