I've been trying to catch up on some chores around here, but
As I've shared before, Kaylee is a brownie girl scout and this week is our week for providing drinks. Usually, this means that someone brings some Capri Suns or juice boxes, but today I'm going to be that mom and go way above and beyond the usual.
I checked with the troop leader and got it okay-ed, so I'm going to take my blender, lots of different fruits, yogurt and juice and make the girls smoothies for their drink today. I have the time to do it, and I just thought it'd be a fun change that the girls would really enjoy. As a bonus, I also bought a can of whipped cream (yes, yes, it's not real whipped cream, but it makes the pretty little swirl of whipped cream) to top all the smoothies with to make it that much more fun. :) I hope the girls like it!
(Don't worry, this is about as over the top mommy-ish as I get. I'm definitely not super mom, that's for sure!)
Back to that photo session that you're all probably sick of hearing about, how cute is this picture?!
Anyway, I just love that my girls both have a love for reading, just like their momma. So sweet to see them looking at a book together.
Speaking of reading, I just finished reading Summer at Willow Lake.
I'll be honest and admit the only reason I read it is because it was on sale in the kindle store and sounded fairly interesting and I was able to buy it for only $2.
That said, it was a pretty good story. While there's a few hints at borderline romance novel-ish stuff, it's more a story about families and relationships and how the family you come from and what you experienced have a big effect on who you are (in a fun, story telling way, not a boring psychology study way). I enjoyed the book and was happy to see that there is at least one (maybe more?) books by this author that are about the same characters. Not a sequel, per se, but just another story. I'll probably buy it for my kindle and read it sometime soon.
I have several things I've been wanting to blog about, but they aren't quick topics I can type out in a few minutes and call it good.
I've really been having internal debates with myself regarding what I eat now, verses making organic food choices, choosing "real food", limiting preservatives, etc. In truth, I don't know where I stand, but it's definitely been something I've been thinking about a lot lately. I hope to write a post about it soon.
Ok, blogging break time over. Back to the chores.
