Let's toast!

I love days that end up with a good laugh. Sometimes I feel like the luckiest girl  because I have friends that don't think it's weird when I text to chat about raw apple cider vinegar, completely get my lame sense of humor, make up silly acronyms (#pwlu) and understand the black hole that is You Tube. 

Thanks friends for always being so awesome! So I think a cheers to friends are in order what do you think? Let's make a drink.

  • 1 1/2 oz Pear Vodka
  • 3 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz Cranberry Juice
In a chilled rocks glass filled with ice, add your vodka and pineapple juice. Top with a splash of cranberry juice.

Back to School

Just a few things on my mind:

  • Does anyone else have a love/hate relationship with themselves for watching the Kardashians? It's like crack, I can't help myself.
  • Loving these mini herb pots found at TJ's. Thanks Jaim!
  • The race is on! School starts tomorrow, lunches, homework, lunches, PTO, sports, lunches. Deep breath.
  • Do any of you ever really make any of the recipes on Pinterest? I have it on good authority that the Fresh Cherry Margs and the Honey Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas are good, I must try.

Home Stretch

This is the last week of summer before the boys head back to school. I won't lie I'm ready for them to go back and for us all to be on a regular schedule. It's been extra long this year because they changed the school year on us and school now begins two weeks later than it used to. So fun for them the kids had a long summer and a little nutty for me.

So one more week and I will be out of the loony bin (and probably complaining about making those damn lunches).

Well done Procter & Gamble, I cry every time I see this commercial.

 Full disclosure, I also cry when talking about this commercial. It's official I've hit complete sapdom.

Love it :: Siblings

Sometimes I shake my head and think, "I'm a mom...of boys!" Being of the female species I don't always get their humor or style, but my goodness are they funny! Sometimes I like to eavesdrop on their conversations, they might just mortify you (because they often do me). I just have to laugh to myself because they're quite um, creative with their choice of words/insults/descriptions. Even though sometimes these discussions that catch I snippets are clearly meant for their ears only I try to respect their privacy so they can find their own style of dealing with one another and find those great inside jokes that all siblings have.

I've seen many bloggers throughout the years talk about sisterly bonds but what about those with siblings in general? I have so many memories of me and my brother that I can't even count. Most of them fun and more than a few of them me being the bossy older sister. (Sorry B!)  But seriously, how funny, embarrassing and sweet are some of them when you think back?
