The weather yesterday in Colorado was absolutely insane. We started our workout and it began to hail and lightning like the world was about to end. Then the hail turned to crazy crain and wind. I totally thought my car was doomed for hail damage. She’s good. But, we had 400m runs in our workout so our coach said we could do either 550m row or 400m run. I did the run. I have seriously never been so soaked in my life while doing a workout. I’ve run in all kinds of snow and rain, but this was like sitting in a bath tub with all your clothes on. My shoes felt like I had just swam through a river. The mall near me had to be evacuated because water was pouring through the lights, my neighbors tree was struck by lighting, and cars were swept away in streets and parking lots. How bad would it suck to watch your car just get swept away? It would suck really bad. Really freaking bad.
But other than that, it’s been crazy hot outside. Every summer, I don’t know how I’m going to last with leather seats in my car. I ALWAYS have a towel on top of my seat in hopes of not melting off my hamstrings. I wish I had cooled seats, that’s the best invention ever. And since I’ve finally gotten to the point where jeans are no longer an option, all I’ve been buying is dresses lately. Yesterday, I stopped by Inspyre Boutique to try a couple things on before I bought them online! Did you see on last weeks Fashion Fridays that I’m running a discount with them?! Don’t forget because they have about a million dresses and when you order something online or in store right now, you’ll get 15% off your order using the discount code paleOMG at checkout!

I’m getting the second dog itch. Jackson seems to get so bored and lonely during the day now that it’s too hot to hang out outside constantly. And since I work from home, it makes me feel even more guilty that I’m not constantly entertaining him. He gives me the sad eye when I don’t play with him. And doggy day cares kind of freak me out now because of kennel cough. My friend’s dog just got it. Frightening. But 2 dogs sounds like a huge responsibility. Should we do it? What to do.
Have you seen the straightening iron that curls your hair. Say whaaaaaa? Does anybody have that? I’m really tempted to get one but I want to hear from my internet friends first. Tell me your thoughts!
