These are a few of my favorite things...

Swim season is right around the corner and I want to be one step ahead of the game by getting our pool gear ordered early.  I decided to look (really look) at our website and order some things I really like for myself.

These are a few of my favorite things…

These are a few of my favorite things...1. The SunSoft Chaise Lounger – this is my all-time favorite pool float! I love everything about this from the cushioned fabric texture (which is much more comfortable to float on than an inflatable vinyl raft) to the back rest at just the perfect relaxation height; keeping your head up but not too high! I really like that your feet stay in the cool pool waters too! It looks so contemporary and with great color choices  of grey, orange and lime you get that modern, cool vibe look to your pool!

These are a few of my favorite things2. I love to listen to music while hanging in the pool so I was really excited when I saw this cool PoolTunes Floating iPod Speaker Light! No more hauling out my big iPod docking station that has to be plugged in way over on the patio. Now I can have my music right next to me in the pool. Love it!

These are a few of my favorite things3. The ThermaSpring Solar Pool Mats promise to get me in my pool much sooner by warming up the water by 10-15 degrees! This can add weeks to both the beginning and the end of my swim season. Since I love to be in my pool, this is really important to me!

These are a few of my favorite things4. It’s important once I’m in the pool that I can stay there! With the Mega Chill Pool Cooler I can keep my drinks and snacks right with me as I am floating along in watery bliss! I live where the summers get HOT so having some ice-cold liquid refreshment right next to me is a big deal!

These are a few of my favorite things5. Last, but certainly not least, is the crazy fun the Pool Beer Pong Table will deliver to any party I throw.  I can’t say I am very good (or long-lasting) at beer pong, but I do enjoy watching a rousing game. Like I said before, I live where it is HOT so moving this party game to the pool makes perfect sense!

There you have my (first) five favorite things that I want for summertime fun! Stay tuned for my top five choices for kids pool toys, games and floats….
