Baby It's Hot Outside! {6.1 Challenges}

I can't believe how hot it is outside already. I thought I was going to choke today. Course, it doesn't really help that i'm super overweight and carrying around all the extra baggage. Oh well... to those who are suffering the heat already, I'm sorry! Remember to drink plenty of fluids to keep from dehydrating!

Love the Q&A. Have fun in Orlando. It's been hot and humid here too...

Terri said...

Heat & humidity is correct! We're really going to feel it once Tropical Storm Barry leaves here this weekend! Just make sure you drink plenty of water & make sure you find good shade or an indoor shop to rest/cool off for a while. You'll have a blast in Orlando!!

Loved reading all your answers! How sweet that you fall in love every day . . .

Thanks for sharing!
