Wow- hard to believe that we are more than half way through July. I am seeing more & more people pinning Christmas things. I know!!! Part of me wants to start planning & then the other part of me feels overwhelmed because I have all these other months to think about first. If I plan out too many at once- I’m going to burn out I think. So I think I will be focusing week by week & see how far I go. At the moment the munchkin has a birthday coming up- fairly soon. So I need to really start planning for that & doing things to prepare. So if you are wondering what I am up to when I am not in the office much this week- that is it.
As part of that prep for munchkin’s birthday- I have been playing with creating drinks.
She loves pink so this Creamy Watermelon Lime Chiller was a top pick.
Plus all this drink creation gave me the chance to play with these straw flags from Life n Reflection.
As part of being on the design team for Kristy- I was given this Spring party Set.
Since it’s not spring anymore- I focused on the flags. I can use them all year long- which is awesome!
You can pick up the set HERE.
As I mentioned yesterday in my Scavenger Hunt post- we spent part of the weekend at one of the stations having a cleaning party & BBQ afterwards. So I didn’t get too many personal photos- most of them are for the FD. I was happy to be able to capture these drinks & share them with you. We all loved them & apparently so do the yellow jackets. The stinging/flying things around here are in abundance & poor Mini-Me not only got stung on her eyelid (what are the chances??) during our Bayview Days celebration but then again on her leg this past week. Sooooooo- I’m not all that thrilled about that. I AM however happy that we found out she’s not allergic.
So do you want the recipe??
