It’s So Hot!

A new family moved into our neighborhood last weekend, so, of course, I stopped by with a bottle of wine to catch the mom, Tabs, up on all of the local goings on and be neighborly.  She and her husband came by on Sunday afternoon for a lil’ get to know you barbecue with the usual gang, Krystyn and Wesley, Cari and Mitch and all of the kids.  Fortunately for us, the Watsons have children who will be in the same grades as my children this fall, and Starling, Merlin, Alcott and Hemingway have been inseperable all week.  To thank me for having them basically move into my backyard while she unpacked, Tabs offered to take them with her to a water park today.  The kids were dressed and ready by the door at about 6:30 this morning!

Of course I raced over to the gym to grab the last spot at child care for Hummus, and came home to try on outfits for my trip next week.  Did I mention that Röbert is whisking us all away for a fun-filled family vacay on Saturday?  I am very excited.

Right now it is so hot out.  The only bad thing about summer (besides stinging insects and having to watch children all day every day) is the heat!  I don’t like to just give up like a lot of people I see around town, but honestly, sometimes it would be more comfortable to wear nothing at all.

Cool and classy.  No frumpy t-shirts for Lah Lee!

Since I realized how fantastic I look in hats, I have gone on a bit of a shopping spree.  Shhh, don’t tell!  I think this one is going to be perfect for the mountains!

A lil' floppy and unstructured, but still very cool.

I think it was very thoughtful of Röbert to choose a mountain destination instead of the beach.  The cool mountain air will be quite a relief after this hot and busy week!

    I am so excited to know where your honey is taking you!! And, well, what if, and this may sound crazy, or maybe not so crazy, but what if he is planning a staycation? I mean– he hasn’t suggested what you should pack and he knows you love to dress, so the least he could do is suggest clothing options. But he hasn’t. So maybe he is planning a fulfilled week at home!!

      well if they are staying home that rectangular pillow case Lah Lee is trying to pass off as a shirt will be quite appropriate. If they’re farming, she can wear the hat. I hope they aren’t going anywhere fancier than Wal-Mart though.

        Haha farming! Maybe he’s going to have them do a Habitat for Humanity type thing and clean, say, a neighbors pool! I hope for your sake Lah Lee your hubby knows how very much you are in need of a lovely vacation to concentrate on you.

        But he won’t give you just the littlest hint? If you’re going to be dining at tony restaurants in Aspen you’ll need an entirely different wardrobe than if you’re going to be hiking the rural Blue Ridge where the nearest grocery store is 30 miles away and the cabins have no air conditioning. Why is he being so cagey? Don’t you think he’s acting a little suspiciously?

        Would you like me to send you a sample of lavender oil? It can make even the most stressed super moms like you relax faster than your beloved glass of franzia!

        Last year we didn’t even have a vacay because I ended up spending more than I planned at Blogher, but also because I get kind of worked up about our vacations. Röbby just doesn’t want me to get as agitated as I can, trying to plan a perfect family vacation.

    I guess the mountains are OK for a get away…provided that they have wifi and child care readily available! Think about all the awesome spontaneous photo shoots that you can start planning and shopping for already!!

    Maybe he’s taking you to one of those ski resorts that are super fun in the summer–Whistler or Aspen? It might be a good idea to fake-sprain an ankle before you go to avoid mountain bikes and have spa/hot tub time instead. Do take selfies with any celebs you see!

    Dude, you have the neck of a swan!! So slender!! How do you target your neck fat? I tried to slim down my neck by wrapping it in Saran Wrap while I worked out,but I didn’t get the results I was after.

      For a thin neck, eat a lot of fiber. It’s the straining whilst in the loo (doing #2 or dropping a deuce as the kids say) that makes a bulgy neck. If it’s just slipping right out of you, no neck bulge!
