Staying Cool on a Wednesday.

It's way hot here this week. Like hotter than the Amazon.

We've been finding new ways to stay cool though. One of which was a pedicure date with E while H was at Vacation Bible School.

The best $5 I've spent in awhile.

I also took my littles on a painting date on Tuesday. They loved it and it was a good exercise for me to let them be and paint how they wanted.

We're about to head out to pick up the bigs and then get ready for our favorite parade downtown tonight.

How are you staying cool this week?

Tell me in the comments and you are entered to WIN from Noodles and Company!

Did you know they now have salads? They just launched this month and they are offering one of my readers a Ten Degrees of Noodles t-shirt and a free salad bowl. You'll then be able to pass along the shirt to a friend who will also get a free salad bowl and so on, up to ten friends and ten free salads. {And the salads are good. I tried the Backyard BBQ Chicken Salad and can attest, it's yummy. They also have a Very Berry Spinach Salad which looks good.}

Winner will be chosen Sunday, July 24! What are you waiting for, how are you staying cool this week?

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I did receive free Noodles salad bowl coupons for myself and my family from Noodles and they are giving away the t-shirt and additional salads.

PS: I have a giveaway ending tonight right here. And this one ends tomorrow. Go enter those while you're at it.

Lots of time in the pool, and I also got a mani/pedi yesterday afternoon with a friend. Wish my feet looked as cute as E's, though!

Is this that painting place at Outlets at Albertville? I've seen a store there that looks arts and craftsy but anchored towards kids. Looks like you guys had bunches of fun and E's toes look so so cute!

Oh, and how do I intend to stay cool this summer: Not turning on the oven, taking cold showers/baths, staying in the air conditioning and drinking tons on ice water!

I went to a free kids movie this morning with the kids and a friend! It was great!

I did my workout inside tonight and went around town asking businesses how the heat is affecting them (look soon on Patch!) Bunker Beach, Elm Creek Park and ourbackyard kiddie pool rounds out the outdoor time, but we are spending more time inside doing games and puzzles as well.

I took the dc kids out to Becker Furniture world where we walked around for exercise and played in their playland. We have also avoided the oven being on and instead eat cold meals like sandwiches, salads and lots of fresh fruits.
