20% Cooler

 My newest dress is about 20% cooler than my other dresses. Why? Because it has ponies!
When I saw this fabric I knew I had to have it but my local stores didn't carry it so I had to order it online. It is even more adorable in person. It has covered in light pink, light blue, and purple stars along with hot pink stars that are Twilight's cutie mark. Only 3 of the mane 6 grace it, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. I could have cut it with either Twilight or Pinkie facing upwards, I choose Twilight because it just made more since that Pinkie would be upside down. I found a piece of rainbow rick rack just big enough to go around the top, it was fate.
I apologize for  the less than stellar photos, I took them twice and hardly any came out either time.  I need to check all the settings and lenses to see what's up. 
Since it has been so hot I opted to wear my hair up. None of my hair flowers look good with my hair up so made a quick bow to match from scrap fabric. I would have worn a pair of my espadrilles but walking around in the park is not the best place to wear heels so I opted to wear my orchid converse.

This week has been hot, and I mean hot. Monday came in at 100 but with the heat index it was 113-115 degrees. I walked down to the repair shop to pick up my hubby's car, the guy was amazed I walked over during a heat advisory. Yesterday and today were in the 90s thank goodness, it almost felt like Fall LOL.

Went to the dentist today for a gum cleaning, my poor mouth is still sore. At least my teeth are in good shape for not being to the dentist since I was 17 or 18. I hadn't been able to afford it since I was dropped from my parent's insurance, I was glad when my husband signed us up for dental this time round, we both needed it.

I got the rebate cards for our phones today. At least I will have a little mad money while we try to pay off these car bills.
