    Yes! I remember that pic. Times do change- especially hair colors!

    And the movie was The Holiday.

    Rachelle,(suddenly realizing I should be using the quote button) what are solar screens? We need something for our upstairs "bonus room." It gets so hot when the rest of the house is cold.

      yeah, that's a good one! ;-)
      haha, Winslet - yes! I thought that movie would be super cheesy but I've watched it probably 5 times already LOL

      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

        Solar screens huh? Martin wants to install solar panels on our roof and then sell the extra energy to TXU or something like that... I just pretend to understand what he's talking about...
        Lol! yeah, that sounds a little tricky. Ours are just the screens that go on your windows to block out all the heat from the sun. You can still totally see through them and stuff - but they absorb SO much of the heat your house doesn't get all hot, you don't have to have the a/c & fans working as hard, you're more comfortable w/out going broke cooling your house blah blah blah... But they're ideal for big, Texan windows. :-)

            Yup! that's the pic I was thinking of! You're so versatile! I can't really pull off any color but BROWN...and dark dark brown at that. I tried a caramel type color once but I got so many J Lo related comments I had to change it. I've been afraid to go lighter ever since!

            Oh, and here's the solar screen company we used...just as an example in case my crazy description didn't quite do the trick.

              I think this weather will make Mexico feel cool... I have been doing a Bridal Bootcamp in the evenings and this heat is almost too much to handle!

                  Girls, I had NO A/C in my car all last week. It took a week to get an appointment at the dealership. I had a rental over the weekend and should be picking it up tonight. And dropping a whopping $2500 for the repair costs. But, it's so hot its worth it!!! Plus, being pregnant makes it even more miserable. I think I'm going to be a hermit all summer and stay in as much as possible.

                  We've got the solar screens too, and I can tell the difference. They are worth it if anyone else is considering them.

                    DIBS, DIBS, DIBS!!!! I want this offer!!! I'd take the upper NW portion of the states any day!!! Gorgeous landscape and color, cooler weather!!! :)

                      You guys get screwed in the summer down in Austin---- all the heat of Texas, with the humidity of the northern wet climates because of all the lakes...

                      But I'd still trade Austin for Dallas. :) I love Austin!!
