Patting self on back!

woooohoooot.

Guess what folks? No. GUESS!

You've been tolerating me not
only for exactly 2 years,
but exactly 500 posts!


Go me!


I'm really proud of this blog, and proud of sticking with it for so long, and proud of the things that I've shared (and restrained myself from sharing lol).

Sooooo... In celebration of that, I'm going to be giving away a cool box of goodies this week! It's going to be packed with Stuff Lana Loves! Many of these things, I've talked about, or shared here, and I want you to know why I love them to. Hint: scrapbook goodies, kitchen goodies, and a couple special surprises.

To enter, all you have to do, is leave a comment letting me know your favorite ways of beating the heat this summer! Cuz srsly, we need ideas.

I will announce the winner on Friday. Only ONE ENTRY PER PERSON... spread the word, anyone can enter. You have to come back to check to see if you're a winner.

That's it. See how easy and agreeable I can be?

I love going over to my sister-in-law's house and cannonballing into their pool...then spending hours annoying my nieces and nephews.

I'd have to say pool as well. "It's not the heat, it's the humidity." Hahah.

congrats!!!!!

it doesn't get super hot here, but a quick dip in the river/lake will cool us all off!

Danielle said...

Congrats!!!! I would say that my fav way to cool down is to lay in my lounge chair under the sprinkler!! I don't have a pool :( LOL

My favorite way to stay cool is to stay indoors in the air conditioning and scrap. I'm not a fan of the heat, so that's the perfect place for me.

We've been doing lots to stay cool this summer ~ swimming in our pool and the community pool, going to the water park, and going to the movies. If we're stuck at home, you'll find us sitting right under the ceiling fans, LOL :)

Congtatulations on your blog...I totally admire anyone that can keep up with a blog and you have done an AWESOME job...IMHO :)

As for "staying cool in the summer", try as we may here in the deep south Mississippi, it is rather hard!!! We do find a small bit of comfort in heading to the pool, but it is the BOXES FULL of popsicles that keep us sane :)

Wishing you a fun filled summer!!!

StacyVZ said...

The only thing I can do is sit in my A/C and remember the days when we didn't have it. I wonder how on earth I ssurvived!

Diana Fisher said...

Congrats on the bloggy 500 posts! Stay cool? Dunkin Donuts iced coffee with caramel and cream, can't go wrong with that!!

stinker said...

Amber Reed said...

Congrats on the 500 posts Sister!! It doesn't seem like it's been that long!! As for staying cool, we like to go boating, and tubing at the lake!! On the other hand, Cole & I also like to finish off a box of popsicles a night, or have a nice big, fattening malt, or blizzard....LOL!!

Mel said...

We head to the waterpark...we have really cool ones here in town that are totally free.

Liz said...

Congrats! Hope its not too late to enter. When its hot out all i want to do is eat ice cold watermelon!!

bcbkjohn said...

My fave way is to get a Route 44 Cherry Limeade from Sonic! AAHHH! Also, cooling down some wintergreen rubbing alcohol in ice, then wringing out a wash cloth, then using the cloth as a neck wrap to cool the body down. It really works!

Tamara said...

congrats on your accomplishment of 2 years and 500 posts! to beat the heat i eat my kids' otter pops... and i stick my feet in their kiddie pool while i read a book or magazine and i drink lots and lots of ice water.

Jenn in AZ said...

Congrats! I have to agree...the pool or ANYTHING with water. If we aren't doing that, we stay in the a/c of the house (or mall!) from about 11ish until about 3. It is seriously hot...no business doing any yardwork then! We used to do read-alouds inside, but not so much anymore at that time. Pool, pool, pool!

delightfuldwelling said...

Stay inside in the air-conditioning and drink some cool, fresh lemonade while enjoying a good book

Starla said...

My favorite way to stay cool during the hot Texas summers is drinking a cold glass of herbal tea.

Jena said...

We live on a farm and we literally 'go jump in a creek.' It is very cold so we don't stay too long, but it's fun anyway.

Cecelia---Sis---Mom said...

The pool, popsicles and ice water. LOL

aboysmommy said...

I sit under the air conditioner. Seriously, in Missouri that's the only way to beat the heat. LOL

Juanita said...

Lots of cold drinks with ice, and if I have outside jobs, I do them very early.
