Summer Fun Jar:  LET'S EAT
Recipe Chosen at random:  FRESH SQUEEZED LEMONADE

There is something so sweet about enjoying the simpler things in life.  How easy it is to forget that we don't always need all of the bells and whistles pushed upon us.  
This past weekend we made a pitcher of delicious fresh squeezed lemonade.

The kids LOVED it, and with only 3 ingredients... who could resist?

Click HERE for the recipe.

Here's a look:

1. Grab your ingredients:  Lemons, sugar, water,  mint (optional)

2. Set up (super cute toddler... optional. )
3. .....and SQUEEZE....
4. Start-a-mixing.   (Purse on arm is a must....)
**at this step we actually tweaked Paula Dean's recipe a bit.... while dissolving the sugar in the hot water we actually muddled mint in with it....(similar to mojito style). Make sure to reserve some mint for the garnish at the end.  You know... to keep things pretty.  ;)
5.  Ooh La La

6. MmMmMmMm...


What a perfectly simple afternoon.  :)

With whimsy~

Hi, stopping by from FTLOB I say your link and just randomly and impulsively wanted to stop over and I'm so glad I did. Your blog is cute. I love that post and the children are so cute. I'm going to definitely attempt lemonade soon! That post made me thirsty! I love your header and all the colors throughout your blog! So pretty! I'm excited to see what else you post!

FTLOB Critique.

Now I am really craving lemonade. Your pictures are beautiful.

Your blog is very welcoming and clean. I don't see anything that stands out that is distracting or needs fixed.

I am a sidebar fanatic and have read many tips and tricks in the last few months and one thing other successful bloggers suggest is to have your friend connect gadget in the top half of your sidebar so new readers don't miss it because of not scrolling down far enough.

Other than that I have nothing. I look forward to reading more of your posts. :)
