We had the hottest and driest June on record…talk about sweating my patooties off. Seriously. I’m not sure what kind of record, if any, we are having in July, but boy-oh-boy does it feel like I’m still sweating my patooties, boobies–and whatever else rhymes–off.

While everyone is slinking around in their bikinis, stripping down to their bare bottoms, and getting pedicures with neon pink to cool down, I’m sipping down this homemade strawberry lemonade. I know, I’m boring. But, I really don’t think you want to see me in a bikini with cottage cheese thighs, nor will you want to see me stripped down to my bare bottoms because I, well, have only bubbles for boobs and what’s attractive about looking skank? I’m probably saying that because I don’t have the bod to look skank.

Anyhow, I love fresh-fruit drinks and I think you will LOVE this strawberry lemonade mixture sugar-kissed with sweetness. No need to strip down to your bare bottoms to get cool–or be cool–for that matter.
