11 ways to keep cool this summer

It is hot. I mean sticky forehead, don't want to move, fry an egg on the sidewalk hot.

Since our little ol' house doesn't yet have the modern convenience called air conditioning, I've rounded up some ways to keep cool during the warm summer months.

1. Clever cube ideas from Bright Nest. Such fun ideas over there!

2. Ice Cream in a Ziploc via 2 Little Hooligans...What!?

3. I am so in love with this vintage fan from Etsy.

4. Infused Water. I'm hooked on Lemon and Cucumber, but really any fruit or herb mixture can be done to your liking. We like to let it sit for a while in the fridge first too in order to enhance the flavor.

5. Homemade popsicles like these mango orange yogurt ones
 from 6 Bittersweets. Yum!

6. Floppy hats! Like I need anymore, but Forever 21's prices 
make it seem okay. Plus they have so many fun colors!

7. We saw stalks of Rhubarb the other day at the farmer's market. 
This recipe would be perfect!

9. I don't know about yours, but our little lady loves ice cubes.
This ice cake would be perfect for her.

10. Strawberry Banana Dog PUPSICLES!

11. A cooling collar from Etsy. This one is ready for the 4th of July!
