Summer Swelter....

What do you do when it's 100 degrees or more in the middle of Kansas? You call some friends and head to the lake! (or in this case they called us.)

Now it's not much of a lake, but it'll do.








Then you come home, put the kids in front of the tv knowing full well they'll fall asleep within minutes. Make a sweet peach iced tea. (See those bushes in the background? They're my tomato plants - about 6 feet tall!! I'm gonna have tomatoes coming out of my ears soon.)


And wear something like this adorable breezy top from madamejen. This is so fresh and summery!


And you need this airy necklace from ivcreations55 to finish it off.


Ahhhh summer. Even sweltering, I LOVE it!

so jealous of the tomatoes and tea.....I have been meaning to make tea all day but things kept getting in my way. (maybe when those THINGS go to bed I will be able to make some to enjoy tomorrow)

I am going to have some tomatoe plants next year darn it!
