Dang This Heat Spell!


It's been a while, since I've logged into my blogger. It's only been since Thursday, but that's like an eternity to me. Truth be told, it is so hot in our apartment right not and the thought of having a blazing hot laptop on me, doesn't suit me well at all. And as you can see I've done my remix number 16 with the same shorts I've been sporting week after week. These shorts have been my saving grace with this 30 for 30 challenge. I can not begin to tell you how crazy hot it's been in southern Virginia. We've been struggling with this heat wave for far too long, and I'll be so happy to finally have some relief from it all. Just a couple of 80 degree days is all I ask.



This heat has also caused me to have quite a scare the other day. It was 105 degrees without heat index and my father decided to try and mow the backyard. I don't understand why he would choose to do something like that, but he tries very hard to keep the yard looking neat, so I guess he figured if he did it earlier in the day it would be fine. That wasn't the case. My dad pushed himself too hard and ended up collapsing on the kitchen floor, scaring the crap out of my mom. It took him a minute to come around, but he had no idea that he fell and doesn't remember anything about it. So yeah, it's that hot around here.



Other than all that, everything is fine. I'm preparing my Mad Men party today and I couldn't be more excited! I found an awesome 60s chip and dip server, a retro oj pitcher, and other little cute do dads to decorate the apartment. And for all you Mad Men obsessed fans out there, I will definitely be serving UTZ potato chips. Ya know, because "Utz are better than nuts!" Oh and there will most definitely be Old Fashions and mock tails.

  2. All I can say is.. I'm about to DIE in this humidity/ heat.. & I'm ready for a mock tail...

  3. So sorry to hear about your Dad! At least he was able to recover and not have to go to the hospital! We've been struggling with the same heat wave in PA and I can't WAIT for September/October to come around.

    Have fun with the party! I've always wanted to attend a Mad Men themed party but none of my friends are into the show.
