How to Live in Phoenix

If you lived here in Phoenix and it was 117 degrees,
You would cut your hair often believing that this would keep you cool.
It actually will not.
Lovely Webcam photo.

And you would buy really cute Vera Wang Flip Flops
 from Kohl's with your Kohl's cash so they only cost $4.00.

Obviously it is not necessarily important to get a pedicure
or paint your toenails.
Or shave your big toe.

And anytime you get in the car,
You must have the necessities.

Diet Mountain Dew for the Mister.
Diet Coke in an environmentally incorrect Styrofoam cup for me.
Don't judge me.
And a granola bar.

And a hat.

Heading out shortly to meet Jo for some retail therapy.

She's says she has gray roots
so I'm not going to worry about shaving my toe.
No cameras allowed today.

I love your hair. Hope you and Jo have tons of fun. Well, at least 100 lbs. worth.

just call me jo said...

Brian should never make fun of our tassel head gear after I've seen his beer drinkin' hat. Your hair was adorable. You must have shaved your toes. I never saw any furry toes. Those flip flops are divine. I had a great time at our outing. Yes, I finally got out of the Chick-Filet parking lot. You were long gone though by the time I turned right.

Jan said...

Nice beer hat, Brian. How come Jo wasn't wearing it?

Short hair does NOT make you cooler...I can testify! But yours is cute nonetheless (is that spelled right?).

I'm a bit jealous that you and Jo went to lunch (again) without me (sobbing inserted here), but will forgive you this time!

It was 65 in the mountains today...kinda like standing in front of the 'fridge. I thought of you.

deb said...

LMAO...you really made me laugh today..AND you made me look at my big toe!!!!!!!!!

Melynda said...

Too much fun! Looks like Brian does not shave on his days off, neither does Honey, I guess they are twins that way!

Dina said...

All I can say is if you don't stop it I'm gonna have to start putting a pair of Depends on before I read your posts!!!

Genn said...

Holly you are SO funny!
I love retail therapy, I think it really works. ;)

Stay cool! Cute new do! I cut my hair thinking the same thing.

Seven Gates Farm said...

Love your new do and the hat on hubby. Retail therapy works. Deb

JDaniel4's Mom said...

It sounds like you have the perfect weather for shopping. I love your sandals.

Tabitha said...

Seriously cute sandals! (BTW, I have to shave mine, too.) :-D

Pat MacKenzie said...

Llo7d and I discovered that the best way to stay out of the heat was to stay in the car and/or in retail therapy. The flip flops are cute - they go well with mister's Irish drinking hat.

Paula @ Simply Sandwich said...

Yikes - sure hope you are keeping cool! Stopping over from the Blog Sugar linky! Looking forward to seeing you in September!
