Carlashes? Say WHAT?!

Hey Y'all!
I hope you're having a great Friday!
It's hot as Pure-T FIRE outside ain't it?!  WOWZA!  Thank GOD for air conditioning!  I don't know how people who lived "back in the day" could even function.
When I was a little girl, my mammaw and pappaw's home wasn't air conditioned....except for one small window unit in my pappaw's bedroom.  I remember being so hot and after we'd all gotten our bellies full, eating Sunday lunch, I would go to his bedroom, close the door, and secretly plug in the AC.  There wasn't even a front cover on it---just pure ice cold air blowing straight at you from cold steel.  At the time, I knew of NOTHING that could have been any better.
At the beginning of the summer, me and Big Daddy bought one of those oscillating fans for our bedroom.  We keep the AC on 69 during the summer, and have a ceiling fan that runs on high,  and NOW we have that wonderful fan, that I keep pointed straight on our faces and run it on high too.  I am spoiled, but I love to be COLD when I sleep and I love to snuggle up underneath a quilt and snore light a bear!
I am SO happy!  Have y'all seen the eyelashes that go on your car's headlights?  I first saw some a few weeks ago and since we bought The Green Goddess, two different people sent me text pictures of cars and their lashes.  I looked online and found carlashes and immediately placed my order.  They arrived today and me and Big Daddy just put them on my car.  I LOVE THEM, you hear me?
Here's me and The Green Goddess:

Also, I have been DYING to read Mary Kay Andrews' new book, Summer Rental.  Thanks to my favorite cousin, Kelly, it's at The Doublewide now to be read!
Also, I almost purchased The Help to read on my Nook, but didn't.  I have seen the previews for the movie and I can't wait to read it.  I found it on Ebay Monday for a lot less that I would have paid to download it, so I got it too and it's here!  It's going to be so hard to pick which one to begin reading!
Here's the books!

Please let me know if you've read either one of them.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Eyelashes for the car?? Now I've seen everything! Yep, it's hot! We didn't have AC when I was growing up, but I don't think it was this hot back then either. I would stay with my grandparents as long as I could because they had the big oak trees in their yard that kept you cool. My parents didn't get AC until 1977 after mother had surgery and had to stay in bed!

Lord, I remember being at my grandparents' house with no air conditioning...not fun! I agree with what Charlotte said...I don't think it used to be quite as hot back then as it is now. Loved The Help, and can't wait to see the movie. Haven't read Summer Rental yet, but it's on my list. I love Mary Kay Andrews. Have you read any of her others?

Wow the lashes are so cute!! I want to read The Help too. I saw the previews for the movie and I think it looks good. I just wish I had more time to read. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you liked the pattern for the headwarmer.
