Oh...the heat....

Compared to the rest of the country, our heat is nothing. It really isn't. 

But compared to my 7 month pregnant body, this is brutal.

The highs are only in the 80s. Which like I said before, it could be WAY worse!  And yes we have a great breeze. And YES I have a fully remodeled basement that is literally like 40 degrees downstairs in the summer (Little Man is on the couch wrapped in a blanket with the temps of 80 outside!). But by golly, I HATE THIS CRAP! 

Around here, because our "summers" literally last a couple weeks, not months, AC is virtually unheard of. And its funny because talks with some of my native WA friends when I say I wish I had central air I get this weird look and a "Why?" I'm not a big heat person! That's why!! I can't sleep when its hot. I don't want to move when its hot. I don't want to even clean when its hot. I just want to sit on my butt with a fan blowing directly on me and just melt. True story.

Every morning I get up and want to make sure the temps are going down, which they have been. But this weekend is supposed to be almost 90. Can we say suck?!? I have a feeling the next couple weeks are going to be lots and lots of pool time. Which hey, I'm okay with that. I got a slight tan this weekend and couldn't be happier! Now if only my legs would tan. I don't like being held responsible for people going blind with from my whiteness :D

What is the temps like where you are? How are you cooling off? Any big plans this summer? 

What's for dinner? Tonight I am making crockpot chicken tacos. Easy, quick, filling and I don't have to turn on my oven or stove :D Bazinga!

You crack me up -- I'm completely the opposite!! I say BRING ON THE HEAT!!! I've been dressing in actual "summer clothes" and keep thinking the weather is playing tricks on me!! I'm probably a glowing pearly white, too, though, so I'll for sure be getting some Vitamin D this weekend:)

Time to make some smoothies and freeze 'em!! YUMMMMMERS!!

I actually said that yesterday! When I lived in GA, this weather was cool and was BEAUTIFUL! Here, this weather is What??? LOL I told my Mom I have become a true PNWestener when I am anxiously awaiting rain and clouds!

This cracks me up because I'm praying for temps in the 80's when we get back from vacation!
