It's July And It's Freezing. Help.

pretending to be warm in the most comfortable shirt alive. 

I'm pretty sure that life is playing a giant joke on me right now. 
For starters, it's the end of July. END.OF.JULY. The weird twisty/turny part to all of this is that while we are smack dab in the middle of summer (okay or severely close to the end of it) the temps have been in the 60's all weekend. We are talking boot, scarf, and hot tea weather. I'm not sure what's going on anymore. My subconscious keeps waiting for a football game to come on the TV while I'm cuddled under piles of blankets and then I have to remind myself that whoa, wait. It's July. Or basically August, whatever. Really what I am getting at is that the name of the months no longer have any value to them. Last March it was near 90 degrees, this July it was 50. I can't wait to reach the 100's in December. I think I am just going to start dating all of my papers "WHAT THE !??! 19, 2013." 

Now that I wasted an entire paragraph of this post on weather (told you I'm 80), I feel it is only necessary to shower you with gifts. You can thank those wonderful people on my sidebar over there for this one. Who would have ever thought that you could win oodles and oodles of free stuff just for reading a blog? See. Life makes no sense right now. 

ps. If you are more of a giver than a receiver (bless you) you can join this crowd come August by clicking here. Rumor has it that I still haven't expired the BIRTHDAY promo code that lands you 50% off any ad space. I should maybe get on that sometime...perhaps when I turn 28. I mean 81.

It's actually been a nice break from the 100+ temps! However, as much as I've been loving Summer this year & do feel it's FLOWN by, I'm sort of ready for Fall. Then again, that won't actually get here until Nov or Dec. I digress. Hope you've had a great weekend lady!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
