I Love You, I Love You Not

There are those days when I dread living in the land of the perpetual summer.  Today was one of them.  The heat has been incessant as of late.  In Hawaii, it's rare that homes have central a/c, and although our home has two a/c (wall) units, it's a rarity we turn them on.  Why?  Because it takes too dang long for it to cool down the room!  Today I had to get out of the house for a cool-me-down.  Had a quick Thai iced tea + Vietnamese coffee date with the Pirate.  Mmm mmm good.  One thing I realized is that even with the temps rising, I still reach for pants and long-ish sleeved pairings.  Go figure.

Hope you all had a great Hump Day.  Off to make dinner.  Tonight's menu, Portuguese Chicken.  Oooo and it's Shark Week on the tube. I heart Shark Week!

Thai Tea is <3 since I started living here it's a rarity that I pull out pants since it is just to darn hot to wear them. And the BF and I never use our AC more so cause it's so expensive, so natural breeze it is.

Mm dinner sounds good by the way!

Those shoes are amazing! Kudos for wearing sleeves even in this kind of weather! You look fantastic.

I was just going to ask why the pants if it's so hot! And the thing with the ac... I think maybe the only solution in this situation is to turn them on and never turn them off, then hopefully they'll cool down the rooms at least a little, no?

Thanks for your sweetest comment! Love the polka dots and those shoes. Jessica Simpson shoes have been looking so great. And a vietnamese coffee sounds awesome right now :) Hope you are having a fantastic week and staying out of the heat. Can't believe you don't use the A/C!

Time to move to the Windward! :P

Nate and I were checking houses on Oahu on Craigslist, and the prices of the Windward communities make us so depressed. It's almost like, hmmm, are there job opportunities in Maui? Can we live there? (Answer, probably not, but it was worth a guess.)

Land of perpetual summer, but it also depends on the shore, right? WINDWARD for me, please!

Come party with us when we get there! Less than 4 months now! 12/1!
