Summer is here and it is HOT. But you already knew that. Today I’m sharing a few different ways to cool off this summer and share about the Home Protection Plan you absolutely need!
Of course you knew this would be at the top of my list! Nothing is better enjoying a popsicle after a meal or even a few as a meal to cool off in the hot summer heat! It is a tradition around here if you haven’t caught on, we make them fairly often! They are super simple to make and you can start with just freezing some juice or blending up some fruit and yogurt! Here’s a favorite recipe of ours!
Blow Up The Pool!
We are fortunate to get to a pool pretty often because Brandon’s mom has one and lives nearby. But sometimes we just want to cool off at home in the back yard and let the boys play so we can relax on our deck. We found this affordable one earlier this summer and it’s pretty easy to blow up and then take down in one day. The boys are creative and pulled over the basketball hoop for some more fun! And sometimes we fill up the baby pool so BTR and I have a place to put our feet in and cool off with a beverage…
Mix Up A Cocktail
Speaking of beverages, you know I love mixing up a fun cocktail in the summer! We have a few classics we lean towards, but you can’t go wrong with anything mixed with gin in the summer! Here are a few of my favorites:

Call Hoffmann Brothers to sign up for a Home Protection Plan
Ok the real star of the summer on those 100 degree St. Louis days is our air conditioning paired with Hoffmann Brothers! Can you imagine your AC going out on a hot day?
Our house is just over 10 years old now and I’m so excited to partner with Hoffmann Brothers to make sure it’s still running in tip top shape! Over the years we’ve had various companies come to fix things, but we’ve never been impressed with anyone and just jumped around.
We recently signed up for a Hoffmann Brothers Home Protection Plan and they just came out last week to do one of the 2 yearly tune ups included with the plan. Michael was our technician and he was so polite, knowledgeable, and professional. He walked us through everything and explained what he was doing along the way. The boys thought his red floor savers were the coolest thing in the whole world so he grabbed them both a pair plus coloring pages from his truck!
Our AC did need a tune up that day and he also let us know about one part that might need to be replaced in the next year, but he didn’t think it was necessary to replace right away. We previously had some trouble with our furnace at the end of the season and he found a blower capacitor that wasn’t working and he was able to replace it.
I’m so glad he found it now vs the first time we turn on our furnace in the fall and it not working! And because we have the Home Protection Plan we saved 15% on that repair.
With our house and appliances getting older, the Hoffmann Brothers Home Protection plan makes so much sense and gives me a peace of mind. We will get priority service, a 15% discount on repairs (HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and appliance), free filters, a discount on duct cleaning, and more!

Hoffmann Brothers is a local St. Louis company and they service all over the metro St. Louis area, including southern Illinois! I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a check up or repair in their home! Before Michael left he told us he would still be outside our house in his truck while he finished entering all the information into his iPad. Later that day I received the most detailed receipt via email that said everything he did. Plus he entered all our HVAC information into the Hoffmann Brothers database so if we ever call with a problem they will know exactly what is in our house already!
Ok so I probably should have put the AC tune up at the top of my list, but sometimes popsicles have priority, right? I hope you’re staying cool this summer and don’t forget to sign up for a Hoffmann Brothers Home Protection Plan!
