Y'all, I hate drinking water. With a passion. It makes me gag. So I am all about adding flavor to my water and am always on the make for new flavors. I just found Ocean Spray Sugar Free Blueberry Lemonade and I am IN LOVE. They also make Cran-Lemonade and Blueberry Pomegranate, also sugar-free. Divine.
What are you treating yourself with this hot, hot summer?

And my kids love them because they are chocolaty. They have no idea they are good for them!
But I got super-tired of paying $4.20 plus tax for a box of 4 from Target. I heard about, researched, and tried the mix they sell, and by George, it's a winner! For $15.48 (free super-saver shipping if you spend over $25 at Amazon), you get three boxes of mix, and each box makes 12 muffin tops- a total of 36 tops.
I didn't have a muffin top pan, so I ordered two of these from Amazon and have been very pleased with them- sprayed liberally with Pam, the muffin tops come right out after baking.
Some notes on using the mix: I use 3/4 cup of Eggbeaters in place of the egg and sprinkle each top with 7 chocolate chips. The baking directions on the box are a little off, so I adjust it to 350 degrees for 15 minutes and get a great result. These are easily heated in the microwave for about 20 seconds from frozen, for a quick and easy breakfast.

And she LOVES to cut. She cuts out coupons for me, cuts out her coloring pages, and even just cuts pieces of lined paper up into bits. I am forever picking up little slivers of paper off the carpet.
But this morning I found that the little slivers of paper I was picking up were her SHOT RECORD. She somehow found it in the kitchen and managed to cut it in a million pieces. Lovely.

I laughed when she came out of her room with her boots on with shorts (so very Jessie!), but in line for the movies, I looked back and realized the teenager behind us was dressed just like that (minus the Jessie shirt!).
So I suppose it was quite in style after all.

Surely you knew I'd draw Mr. Bowtie in the office pool, right? I mean, I had Scarfy McScarferson last year (Kevin- who I really ended up liking!).
What's your favorite BB site? I have relied on Hamster Watch the last few seasons to get my fix. Of course, I have no time for live feeds, but I love reading the daily summaries and just started following them on Twitter.

A friend showed the Dad Life vid to me last weekend, and Mr. Sasha kept telling me he had already emailed it to me. I'm all about social media and knew I hadn't seen it, so I remembered the subject line of the email he sent said "Swagger Wagon" and that was the Toyota vid, totally different! (And I deleted it since we've all seen Swagger Wagon...)
So this was new to me, and I die! "Hold up- is that a weed in my fescue? Ah no- Roundup to the rescue!"
Mwahhhhhh....... I might even like this better than Swagger Wagon.
Have you seen it?

If my kids happen to see it, I'm going to be very very upset with you.
They certainly don't need to hear about those "invisible vegetables" in there. I have them snowed over about it, and I don't need you spoiling it. Why would you do that to me?
Perception is everything, and if P finds out about those carrots, he won't be indulging anymore.
So if I see that commercial running on Disney or Sprout........... well, let's just hope I don't!

We are loving our new Flip HD! My FIL is in the hospital and we've been making some videos for him to watch of the kids. P is loving baseball and wanted to share his swing. Major leaguer in the making if I do say so myself. You just plug the camera into the computer and it prompts you to do all kinds of stuff like email and load to youtube.
It's $152 on Amazon right now, and is easy-peasy to use, as the kids would say. Basically I took it out of the box and turned it on.
I also got this little tripod thinking I might do a vlog or nail tutorial. Don't get too excited, we all know how my turnaround time on new stuff that has to be planned out is. This puppy is still in the box.
But I *have* been using the case I bought and it's perfect. I'm keeping the Flip in my purse for those all-of-the-sudden, must-be-filmed moment that are sure to pop up.

and see my dying laughing, almost tripping,
I shall be listening to Bridget Jones's Diary on my ipod.
I love music, I really do, but I am so ADD that I can't listen to music while I run. Too many opportunities for my mind to wander, and I always end up thinking about how tired I am and how much I want to stop running. And how much I'd actually prefer a beer.
But I found that if I listen to some British chick lit, my runs are glorious, much fun, and v. good.
Because of this, I've also decided to add some of Bridget's phrases into my daily speak. Beginning now, I will be saying the following:
- Mobile (pronounced mo-bile)
- v. good and non v. good
- Flat, in reference to while I live
- Inner Poise
- Alcohol units
- Fancy, as in "Fancy a snack?"
