The Weekend Files 07.29.11

The weekend is here! I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but here in Dallas, it is HOT! There’s just no sugar-coating it. My weekend will thus be filled with things aimed squarely at beating this nasty heat.  A few things I have in mind?

A hot summer evening seems like the perfect excuse to finally check out Woody Allen’s latest picture Midnight in Paris. I’ve heard great things from friends and family and can’t wait to see it.

Don’t these popsicles just scream summer to you? Yum. I’ve got a box of coconut fruit bars that I am obsessed with. I’ll definitely be indulging this weekend with one (or two) of these treats.

Pool time is a must when it’s this hot out.  Despite the fact that the water is barely below boiling temps, there’s something still refreshing about taking a dip in a pool of water.

The heat also brings another great excuse (like I even need one) for me to put in some time at the air-conditioned mecca of shopping, Northpark Mall (aka my happy place).

And then, of course, there is always reading. I have a couple great book reviews coming up for you guys in the next few weeks–maybe I can get through another one this weekend!

What do you have planned for the weekend? How do you stay cool in this scorching heat?
