Tonight, I am sitting here at a table in the basement where my oldest is attempting to fall asleep in the next room. Every creak from people walking above us is an excuse. He's tired, I'm tired. I am hoping (and praying!) it won't be long! We are on our annual get-a-way weekend with family. There is fun to be had! It's the perfect time to blog. . . waiting for your kid to fall asleep so you can go and join the rest of the adults for some kid-free fun!
So, here are my Friday Favorites for you. . . a bit late. But, before I begin, I am proud to say, that I uncovered my house from the funk that was brought on by having a kid in school (that's what I accomplished this week!).
1. Meet the newest member to my kitchen family:
Seriously, I have been in love since I found it last year when I was spending my free money from Sur la Table. I had used my coupon then to purchase another Joseph Joseph product and toyed with buying this instead. I have had it in my wishlist and I haven't gotten it yet, so I bought it. It rocks! It twists flat so that storing is awesome, but it is very sturdy. Mine is colorful. . . because I am a huge fan of color! If you've never used a Joseph Joseph product, I highly recommend trying it out. . . so worth it (and reasonable, too!).
2. My Paper Pumpkin welcome kit finally arrived! It was like Christmas! I can't wait to share all about it next week. . . seriously I was able to be whisked away to happy land, without leaving my house or making a huge mess. It was a win win! And, I got to be creative! I can't wait to share with you what came in the box and my cool projects!
I am so in love with lemonade. It have been my celebratory drink each night after the kids go to bed. I love to stick fresh strawberries or raspberries in it, for even a better treat! My favorite is Simply Lemonade. I've tried other brands and even have tried some fancy labels like this and was not impressed. . . something about combining grape juice and apple juice doesn't do it for me.
Oh and a little tid bit, if you are serving lemonade at a party (even the Country Time kind!). Pour some vanilla in it for a delicious twist! It has wowed many a guests since a friend and I tried it out! I promise. . . it's awesome!
And that's it for now. . . my favorite instagram I will share Monday. . . because I want to go enjoy some adult conversations while the kiddos are sound asleep.
Have a happy Labor Day!
