That ice shaver is a great idea - I may check our Walmart next week. That would be a great summer treat for my girls!


I love Trader Joes! They have great coffees and breads too. Wish we had one here in Chattanooga....

Hope you are adjusting well to the heat!



Welcome to my world. It is suppose to be up to 105 here in West Texas. Learn to get everything done early in the morning, and to be indoors during the heat of the day, say from 10 am to 10 pm.. Cooler is relative. You will get to where 90 is a cool front and 70 is freezing.
Glad you are getting settled and back on line, we have missed you.

Can I say how sad I am that your label went from "Moving to Arizona" to "Everyday Life?" It sounds too permanent. Can you just put Moving to AZ for the whole year? Just kidding, really!

I do miss you and I love that you have a beach in your neighborhood!! Also, I'll have to check out those books. I have wondered if they were good.

Carrie @ Blessed Chaos

I am so glad you have arrived safely! Praise God for answered prayers!!!!

My hubby is from Phoenix so the first time he took me to meet his family it was July and about 113 degrees!!! BLAH I nearly choked on the hot air. You already have alot of great ideas for keeping cool, and you will probably notice things get much busier late at night rather than in the afternoon.
