Instead, here are some of the ways my family beat the staggering Charleston heat this weekend. Andy's parents and brother, Matt, were in town visiting during the HOTTEST weekend in Charleston, yet. Matt has been in Rome, Italy for the last 2 years studying to become a Catholic priest, and we haven't seen him at all in those 2 years. Needless to say, it was a great reunion and was so good to see him!
Here are some of our tips to beat the heat...
Take a cooking class at Charleston Cooks!
|Summer-Style Shrimp & Grits|
|Bourbon Pecan Pie|
Go antiquing and purchase a lovely new hutch for your dining room
Pick out paint colors for the house
|Dining Room color is the one on the top: Restoration Hardware "Stone"|
|Sea Salt: Living Room and all "open areas"|
Oyster Bay: Kitchen
Drink lots of these
|Perfect Margraitas: 1 can frozen limeade, 12 oz. tequila, 24 oz. diet sprite, 1 beer|
Eat lots of these
Run through a sprinkler
Drink some Sambuca straight from Italy.
Take some guitar lessons
Go see a movie
Or just snuggle on the couch with a sweet pup
That's how we beat the heat this weekend. I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July and, hopefully, an extended holiday weekend!
Remember, come back tomorrow for the recipe for the shrimp and grits!
