Melissa said…
You forgot frozen margaritas. :P
Julie Flanders said…
Ooh I have to second Melissa's frozen margaritas. I could use one right now LOL.

Happy weekend, Carol! Enjoy some champagne. :)
Rachna Chhabria said…
Melted chocolate, strawberries and heart shaped cookies, I am drooling ;)
L.G. Smith said…
I think we're gonna need a fan. :P
Linda G. said…
Thanks for writing my shopping list for me! ;)
L. Diane Wolfe said…
Everything but the Jello shots. I don't handle those well.
Robin said…
I would have expected something more exotic from Sugar Lustytush. She sounds like a gal who keeps summer hot by lying on a towel at the nearest beach with her suntan oil, being fanned by a cabana boy, while drinking something like Sex On The Beach, or maybe a Slow Screw Against The Wall. Who cares what she's drinking? All we want to know is the details on the cabana boy. Am I right or am I right??? That is how you keep a summer HOT.

I think I might change my name to Sugar Lushytush. You don't think the judge would laugh, do you?

It's been so hot here ....and more to come a nice cool shower would be welcome.

Luanne - #12!

Linda G - No prob :)

Robin - Sugar couldn't decide among the cabana boys. She's still holding auditions :)

Janie - She wouldn't dare laugh :)
Lexa Cain said…
Your list is scrumptious, but I'm trying to keep the summer *cool* not hot, so I'll go with ice cream and anything with "ice" in it! lol
Dorothy Parker nailed it (again). Champagne for my real friends, Real pain for my sham friends.
Bubbles make almost everything better.
Slamdunk said…
I love the heat and we sure put away our share of popsicles here. And mom thinks it is just the kids eating them...

I don't think we need anything around here to keep summer hot - it's doing a fine job all on its own. I just wish it wasn't doing such a good job. :o)
Rick Watson said…
You nailed it girlfren.
Shelley Munro said…
Ooh! I'd like champagne and a frozen margarita. Good list :)
Jo-Anne Meadows said…
Champagne and strawberries sounds nice
Helena said…
How about ice-cold sherbert drenched in champagne?
I'm glad that Sugar is back! Speaking of which, I'd like to add mint chip ice cream to my #7!

unikorna said…
strawberries and raspberries if I may :).
CATachresis said…
Mmmmm! Loverley!!!! Sugar Lushtush, my hero!! lol
Jemi Fraser said…
Nice!!! Although Sugar & I disagree on the champagne. I've only tried it twice, but I really didn't enjoy the taste :P
Ms. Lustytush, I believe these are ingredients for some creative endeavors :P All you need now is a large bubble bath. Or a hot-tub...

Fun fun post!
Carol Kilgore said…
Oops! I lagged a little behind yesterday in keeping up with comments. Too much champagne? I'll never tell :)

Yvonne - Stay cool and don't overheat. Drink plenty of water.

Lexa - Ice it is!

EC - Love the quote! True about bubbles :)

Clarissa - Yeah, like that :)

Slamdunk - "Honest, hon. The kids ate them." LOL!

I'm always upset when chocolate melts.

Great list. I hope you're having a good weekend.

Jemi - Sugar says she'll drink yours :)

Words Crafter - Oh, yes ... bubbles for your nose, and bubbles for your toes!

Medeia - Messy!

Michelle - Uh oh. I should've linked back to Monday's post so everyone would know who Sugar is. Sorry about that.

Blue Grumpster - Plans are important :)
Mason Canyon said…
Now that is a list. I'd have to say I'd start with melted chocolate, whipped cream, champagne..........oh, sorry my mind got sidetracked. :) Have a great week.

Isn't the summer hot enough? Oh. Wait. Now I get it. He-llo...
Julie Luek said…
You know, I've never had a jello shot. Hmmm.. maybe I should put that on my bucket list ;).
Nas said…

Lovely top ten!
VR Barkowski said…
No doubt Sugar Lustytush knows what she's talking about, but this year I seem to be having more trouble keeping things cool than keeping them hot. Champagne is always good, though. :)

Carol Kilgore said…
Mason - LOL! Focus :)

Milo - Bless your heart :)

Julie - Do it!

Nas - Yay!

VR - I agree about champagne.
