My husband is turning 30 this month -  this little ecard pretty much sums it all up.

 So much pressure! :)

Watermelon Slushies

My latest summer crush/addiction has been watermelon slushies! Oh yum! A lovely libation concocted after two too many over-wipe watermelons were purchased by yours truly and not wanting to throw them out or try to lug them back to the store to attempt to return them I turned to the internet for some recipe ideas and found this! Even my watermelon-hating husband loves these.

Such a pretty looking drink - though if you add too much ice - as it melts it will separate a bit, but trying to find a way to mix up a big batch of these fora party! Yum!

Here's the recipe!

Watermelon Slushy
-cubed watermelon
-juice of one lime
-sugar to taste (about a teaspooon or so)
-ice (if your watermelon isn't frozen)
-blend and enjoy!

I have since cubed up all the overripe watermelon we have and put it all in ziplock baggies and froze them in the freezer before they go bad - watermelon slushies for weeks to come! :)

P.S. This cinder block has been Laney and I's little hang out spot in the back yard here this dry, hot is in a shady spot and her and I take turns sitting on it and enjoying the coolness and the view of the flowers...she also likes to fully drench it with the hose when she is helping me water the plants. :)

What Not to Ask A Woman In An Elevator

So going to and from work everyday you tend to run into the same people who work in the area - bumping into each other in the parking lot elevator and building elevators etc.

Well a guy who works on the same floor in the same building as we do (in the office who sells snacks for 50 cents each actually - so they tend to see quite a lot of me) started chuckling in the elevator at me yesterday. :|

Not in the mood and being just a tad bit cranky - I geared myself up for whatever he was about to say. And oh yes, he asked it, "(chuckle, chuckle, chuckle)Why do you carry so many bags???(chuckle, chuckle, chuckle)" - whilst I am balancing everything rather awkwardly after walking two blocks to the parking garage.

Me: "Wwweeeelllllll.....I pump breastmilk...(paused just long enough to let that sink in fully)- SO this is my pump bag and this is the bag that carries my breastmilk, and this is my purse and this is my lunch bag. [awkward pause where he now looks embarrassed at the amount of times I said breast] Probably more than you wanted to know - but THAT is why I carry so many bags."

BOOYAH! Who's laughing now??! :)

Cannot Get Enough of These Curls!

Our baby finally has some hair! I would hope so since she is now 22 months! But for the longest time she was pretty thin on top. Now the little ringlets keep getting longer and longer. She has some curls on her Daddy's side of the family (or so I hear :) ) so hopefully she gets to keep it!

My favorite is to put her hair in a pony tail - so sweet!

Random note for the day: Biscoff Spread.

Have you tried it yet?

OMG - seriously missing out if you haven't.

I have two words for you : "spreadable cookie."

Yup, like peanut butter but it takes like a a spread in eat the whole jar with a spoon without bothering to waste it by spreading in on a cracker or apple or something (which is exactly what my husband and I managed to do within 3 days of having a jar). Haha! :)

I have also managed to find some recipes using it - thinking of maybe doing Biscoff spread cupcakes with biscoff spread buttercream frosting. Oh yeah! :)

Web Finds Wednesday

I know you all have missed this type of posts! :) These used to be my way of kind of bookmarking interesting stories and things online for me to go back and read later when I have time...but then I discovered evernote and pinterest and that is now where I save all my recipes, tips and tricks, interesting articles etc. But I should still try to take some time to share with you all too!  :)
