It’s practically summer – the best time to get outside and have fun!!! I don’t know about you all, but I’ve had enough of the cold weather. I’ve started a list of things I plan to do this summer and thought I’d share it!

1. Go on bike rides with my family and friends
2. Take hikes
3. Go swimming – at the beach and at the pool!
4. Plant a garden
5. Walk and play fetch with the dog
6. Make a slip and slide out of a tarp, soap, and a hose!
7. Attempt to make a home-made kite and fly it
8. Play sports, of course! I love pick-up kickball, basketball, and soccer games.
9. Go miniature golfing
10. Practice yoga
11. Get tickets to a baseball game
12. Go roller blading
13. Have picnics!

Those are just a few things I’ve thought of so far! What kinds of things are you planning to do this summer? Write a comment and let me know!

Hey Everybody,

The holiday cheer is just wonderful, isn’t it? I am completely in the spirit of cheer and giving! I bet everyone’s effort to make donations to those in need is really making the spirit fly!

Are you ready for the LAST idea of the week for the year of 2007? I can’t believe the year is nearly over! Here it is: have a gift-exchange party with your friends before vacation. Put all of your names in a hat, have each friend pick a name, and get a present for that person. Instead of buying a present, why not make one? Gifts from the heart are always the best ones. Then, ask each friend to bring a set amount of money (like $5-10, maybe) that you would have used to buy a gift. With that money, you can all go out and buy a gift together to give to a charity of your choice.

I wish you all a wonderful, fun, and SAFE holiday break!

That’s all for now,

Each week Girl Talk brings you the Idea of the Week filled with fun and creative alternatives to drinking alcohol. It may seem that all your friends are spending their time partying and you’re probably thinking your only option is to join in. But research shows: nearly 75% of girls drink alcohol “to fit in.” That means many girls are making bad (and illegal!) choices because they feel like they need to. Do you want to suffer the negative consequences that come with underage drinking? Here’s my advice: be the cool girl who finds something else to do instead – you’ll probably find that other girls around you will be thankful and relieved to have something fun and safe to do!

Hey Everybody,

How is your month of giving going? Did you make lots of yummy treats to sell off for a great cause? Tell me all about it!

Now for this week’s idea of giving. It comes in two parts – first, a fun part and then the giving part! First, tell your friends to find the most outrageous clothes they can find. Dig in the backs of your closets! Find those crazy clothes you haven’t worn for a long time and roll them all into an extra crazy outfit! Then, get all of your friends together and have an outrageous what NOT to wear fashion show! Strut your stuff down a makeshift runway, smile for the cameras as your friends take pictures, and then vote on who has the craziest outfit! That’s the fun part… now for the giving part! When you’re done with your fashion show, donate the clothes to a Goodwill or a shelter in your area. Add to the pile with other clothes you haven’t worn for a while that you may have found while digging around. You’ll make someone else’s day with a new outfit that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford.

I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoying the winter weather and the holidays!

That’s all for now,

Hey Everybody,

Happy December! December is one of my favorite months of the year because of all the wonderful holiday cheer. While I love to celebrate the holidays, I am also aware that some people are not as fortunate as I am. That’s why I’ve decided to make the month of December all about giving to those in need.

So, for the first week of giving try this idea of the week: Ask your school if you can put on a bake sale to earn money for a cause. Choose a campaign, shelter, or organization to donate the money to. Then, ask each of your friends to bake something to sell. If you’re involved in a club or sport at school, you could even ask the other members to bake something as well. Remember when you’re donating to a cause in need, every penny counts.

I’m sure you will all do a fantastic job! Good luck!

That’s all for now,
