It is getting HOT outside. And our AC has been running all day. Say hello to ginormous summer electric bills. I just noticed it is 78 degrees in our house which means the ac is probably going out. Hallelujah that we are moving into our new house next week! I am one of those people that keeps our ac at low temperatures and sleeps with the window open in the winter time. So I am dying that it is 78 degrees in here!
Hot house+moving= I am going crazy!
Although it is getting hot outside we are loving the summer weather! We have BBQ’s almost every night of the week. We love spending time outside. And pasta salads are always a must at any summer BBQ that we have.
