Trying to beat the heat!

by Elizabeth on July 1, 2013

Happy July! I hope you had a fantastic weekend and somehow managed to stay cool! My car said 108 on Saturday? I can’t even imagine what August will be like! We had a packed weekend that started with a trip to Willis to see my parents and a BBQ baby shower for my cousin and his wife. They’re expecting baby Gavin at the beginning of August!

This was a pretty cool dessert I felt the need to share with you? apple slices topped with marshmallow cream, caramel, chocolate chips, and nuts!

Funfetti cake + a chocolate cupcake + a side of extra frosting foe me.

After the BBQ we headed back to our house to celebrate Joe’s best friend’s birthday! Sadly, even at 8:30 pm the pool is pretty soup-like and not all that refreshing? we did play some fun games and spent a lot of time catching up.

Sunday we went to mass and helped my brother and sister in law move into their new home! She was worried her baby would come before they got all settled in. Thankfully that didn’t happen! We are expecting to see that sweet little face in the next week though :-)

Have a great Monday!

When was the last time you moved?

On a scale of 1-10, how was your weekend?

What are you looking forward to in JULY?!?

Sounds like an awesome weekend! I love how a pool wasn’t even that refreshing!
And I’m definitely the type to take extra icing, too!
My weekend was a 10, especially since it is a long weekend and I’m still off today enjoying brilliant summer weather!

I moved in August and I will probably be moving again in May… I have moved at least once every year since 2008. YUCK! My weekend was a 10, for sure. Such a great time!! I am looking forward to my work trip to Costa Rica and my birthday at the end of the month!!

Last time I moved was in January…I’ve moved every year for the past five years with school and then new job(s). I’m so ready to just settle down somewhere and stay for a while. I’m looking forward to going home for the 4th of July to see my family!

P.S. I love funfetti cake more than I can explain. Makes me want some just looking at that pic!

Marshmallow cream on apples? Yes, please. I used to dip apple slices in vanilla frosting (when I could get my hands on it, that is)!

We spent some good time in the pool this weekend as well. Overall, I’d give my weekend a 6! It is just too hot to have much fun. =)

This past Thursday was our ten-year anniversary in our current house! The time has flown by! Our weekend was great (8 maybe), mainly because it was pretty relaxing despite the fact that I trained some clients on Saturday morning. I’m looking forward to our annual family reunion in late July!

Your weekend sounds great, minus the 108 weather.
I actually just moved this week. I am just now trying to get unpacked and settled in.

I’m all about extra frosting. I could even leave the cake I bet.
Your weekend sounds like a bunch of fun! I feel you on the heat, it’s been crazy up here and I’m slightly dying although I don’t want to complain about it because rain sucks more.
And I’m pretty excited for July to finally arrive. I feel like it’s one of the best months of the year.

We moved to Iowa from IL almost 4 years ago. I HATE moving!!! The only good thing is you get to go through and weed out your stuff. But I still HATE moving!
I would say my weekend was an 8…good but nothing spectacular. I love the 4th! We are doing a float for our church in the parade.

Girl, I totally feel you on the heat…Alabama is H.O.T. too. Boo! But, who can be mad about the heat with those jacked up apple slices. Mmm…What a good idea! Looks like your weekend was fab!
