Summers in Texan are just the worst. Before moving to the Lone Star State, everyone always said, “Oh, it’s a different kind of heat. It’s a dry heat.” Yeah, how about you try moving my life’s belongings into a house in Dallas during June and see if you enjoy it. Dry heat, don’t make me laugh.
Okay, so I really hate Texas heat. And while I would love crank my AC down to have my home mimic an igloo, I also would like to be able to afford to eat on a daily basis. One can only dream…
So I can’t abandon ship and leave Texas for the months of June-October, I can’t transform my home into the Artic, so I’ve learned to suck it up, Buttercup, and embrace the heat.
With the heat index climbing well into the triple digits, I’ve had to be a little more creative about hydrating through the day. We all know water is a solid choice, but water can get boring after a glass or two. I’ve worked up a little guide for y’all to keep your cool (you’re welcome) and stay healthy and happy no matter where you are this summer!
What are y'all drinking to stay refreshed and healthy this summer? I'd love to hear about it! Then go do yourself a favor and make a blender of watermelon mojitos. All the cool kids are doin' it.
Healthy Happy Texan
