Baby, It's Hot Outside!




♨ Is your temperature setting stuck on broil?


Oh man, it’s been a hot summer so far!  The heat is everywhere - even places in the US that normally don’t get very warm in the summer have experienced temperatures in the in the upper 90s that feel as hot as triple digits because of the humidity.


Sweltering heat for 10 days in a row, but not record-breaking ... yet!

Only been 22 days since the first day of Summer, I'm already looking forward to getting it over with! I'm Hot and Sticky and getting a little bitchy about it ...

Yesterday I was enjoying a leisurely look around Pinterest and ran across a person who had filled one of her Boards with photos of her daughter's wedding. One in particular caught my eye. It was a photograph taken at the reception of the cake table, but instead of the beautifully decorated confection we're used to seeing, it was an absolutely stunning rendition of a wedding cake sculpted in ice!

Well, one thing led to another and I found myself in the wonderful world of Google Images where I discovered a sure-fire way to cool down ... if only for a few moments. 

But BEWARE! Viewing may lead to the need for a coat, hat and mittens even on a day as hot as this!!!


Doesn't this just take the Cake?


Beautiful ice carving of a Geisha in Japan

Detailed ice sculpture of Cinderella's carriage 

When Dinosaurs ruled the Earth created in ice and snow

A cool skateboard in every sense of the word ...

Snowy Polar Bear
























































































































'Melting Men' ice sculptures by Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo

Absolutely massive sculpture of King Kong complete with bi-plane!!!




And Last, but certainly not Least ...


None other than the Beloved Vanilla Ice


"Yo, V.I.P. let’s kick it… Ice, Ice Baby"

If you recognize the 1990 Vanilla Ice blockbuster hit, don’t be embarrassed. If you hummed the little tagline jingle in your head after you read the title, then be VERY embarrassed ツ

Hummed the line under Vanilla Ice??? I sang the entire song in my head...yeah that's right...the WHOLE thing is committed to memory. I'm pathetic lol

It's been SO hot...we definately needed the sweet relief of those gorgeous ice sculptures.

Love the skateboard. Wish you'd posted the photo of the ice wedding cake!

Oh gosh...Vanilla Ice!!! Great post. What's funny is, usually it's WAY hot in Northern California at this point in summer, but today it's actually breezy and a little cloudy. We're about 10-15 degrees BELOW normal. Crazy weather!!!

Very cute! I want the ice carriage! It's adorable! The sculptures of the melting men are great, too - I'd love to see something like that.

And yep, I'm with bloom - I still have the song going through my head (complete with the image of his pants - and memories of tight-rolled jeans, wearing 2 different colored pairs of socks at the same time, and sky-high bangs courtesy of Aqua Net) :P Thanks for bringing a smile ;)
