It's so hot and humid.....oh Texas!8:20 AM
Did I ever tell you how I don't like humidity, how it is one of the things I really really immensely dislike and so does my hair?
When we moved to Texas, or rather, when the whole Texas thing first came up, I didn't even think of it, I mean I had bigger fish to fry and a myriad of things running through my head, none of which included humidity.
Now I'm here, and I'm really really immensely disliking the humidity, and so is my hair.
Our AC decided to conk out last night and we've been dying here in this heat. I don't think you can survive in Texas without an AC, I'm pretty sure that it's not even legal to live in this State without one. At least that's what I tell myself.
The rain has been coming down for the past few days, matter of fact as I started typing this post, it started up again.
Had a really hard time sleeping last night with the heat in the house, even though the fans were going, I actually ended up getting some ziploc baggies and filling them with ice to take to bed with us and the doggies, it was the only thing that made laying in bed bearable.
Didn't even bother to try and sleep in today, it wasn't going to happen and I had phone calls to make and things to attend to, so just got up and enjoyed a cup of coffee while watching he day starting to break.
Anyway, enough about humidity and heat, I wanted to show you just a very few pics of our 4th of July weekend, we had so many people over, the house was packed. I didn't get many opportunities, if any at all, to grab my camera and document anything. Craziness!!!
I did want to show you my drink dispenser, I've had my eye on it for a while and thought that this weekend was the perfect time to get it. It held Mint Tea, yum!!!
Oh and guess what I saw in my front yard, I can't tell you how excited I was, I'm sure for most of you it's nothing, you're probably used to seeing it all the time, but I've never in my life had them in my own yard.
I also wanted to tell you all that it looks like we finally have the kids school figured out, which is a huge weight off my shoulders, had me quite worried there for a while.
Right, I have floors to vacuum, a house to clean, laundry to get through and a menu and grocery list to plan.
Curt's aunt and uncle are arriving tomorrow afternoon to spend the weekend with us, we haven't seen them in so many years, and we're quite excited to visit.
Almost forgot though, wanted to share with you real quick.
My hair has been really frizzy and dry with all this humidity and I don't like it at all, so I've been needing to deep condition it more often.
I just did it last night, and this is my favorite go to hair mask using ingredients you already have on hand.
Moisturizing Hair Mask
2 tablespoons coconut oil, slightly warmed
1 squirt of honey
Whisk it all well, then apply all over your hair, starting at the ends which are usually the driest. Wrap a plastic bag around your hair, tie it with a knot and let sit for 4 hours. Wash as normal and voila.....soft and silky hair.
You can check out my results on my Instagram.
I better get started on my day, have a wonderful rest of Thursday friends :)
