We Broke...

It's official. I finally broke. After my hot, sweaty, sleepless night Sunday night, I threw in the proverbial white towel.

I couldn't take it anymore. Called up my mama and declared..."I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!! WE'RE SLEEPING THERE TONIGHT!"

And she was all, "Yes. Of course. Calm down."

And I was all, "Can' Of heat stroke." *croak*

Thankfully I lived. And so, after going dress shopping with my bestie and her wedding crew (eeeeeek!!!) (she said "Yes!!" To the dress!!!!) (eeeeeeek!!!!! again!) I joined up with my children and slept in the cool comfort of my parent's basement.

Sorta brought the whole "grown up and living in your parent's basement" thing to life. Gah. Thankful I can go back to my sweltering house today and that this basement living thing was just temporary.

In other weather related news, it turns out Georgia stole our weather. So, if you see Georgia, please tell them Minnesota wants their weather back. These endless 90 degree days are for the birds.

One week from today my kiddos start school. 

Excuse me while I go cry...


  1. We have had crazy weather here in TN, not typical for August at all. Looks like this coming week will heat up some, but usually it's sweltering around this time of year. It's been very almost fall like in the low 80's.

  2. what the The Pink Growl said. It has been so weird here in TN. I don't mind much, though. Fine by me!

  3. South Carolina must have stolen it too. We have been in the mid 80's and not to much humidity. We have really enjoyed it. Especially after the 3 digit summer we had last year. Thanks for sharing. lol

  4. Texas hasn't stolen anyone's weather...but it's sure clinging to it's own! I'm dreaming we have 4 seasons down here. Unfortunately, it's just dreams. (Boo!)

  5. 90's - shoot... that's our "Summer" weather... we have two seasons. Summer and "Summer Lite"

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)
