Summer strikes back

Well it appears summer wants to give us one last hurrah.  Actually, knowing MN, this won't be the true last hurrah, we'll probably get some Indian summer too.  Today, it's going to be 90 again.  And dry.  Oh man is it DRY.  I cannot keep enough lotion on!  We need some rain and some moisture.  I hear we may get some tomorrow and then it'll be back down to 70 for a high.  Fall in MN.  You have to love it.

With the warm weather, I knew a sundress was a necessity.  I have already packed away some of my "springy" colored clothing, but this one I felt was a good choice to take into the Fall because of the colors.  And it's so crazy comfy, can I get a Amen for jerseyknit material?  

 So remember I said the Pants Monkey made homemade hot dogs with his dad?  Yesterday they smoked them in his smoker and since today it's summery, we're going to grill them for dinner!  I smelled them yesterday and they smell fantastic.  He said he and his dad tried one for lunch and they were really tasty.  So I'm excited to give them a try tonight!

    You know it's still summer, right? The change to autumn isn't until Sept 23rd? You're not exactly in fall yet!

    1. LOL, this is true, I just tend to think of anytime after Labor Day as Fall!

  7. I am loving this weather and I am still refusing to pull out my fall clothes. I am hoping it's warm enough to beach it this weekend! I can't believe it's this warm in September! I love it!
