New favorite hobby

I have to admit, I am quite obsessed. I am a pinner!

I am addicted to pinterest. Tell me you have heard about it ( I know most of you have b/c you all are some crafty people)

So if you want to follow me just look me up.

For those of you that aren't sure what this is I will sum it up.

You create an account. You see something on the Internet you like/want/need or a diy project, you pin it and it goes onto a theme based board. You can make boards for your house, kitchen, your style, diy, crafts for children, the board titles are limitless. It is fun and addicting but for those that are feeling crafty it gives you great inspiration.

So have I peaked your interest? Are you already addicted?

Let the inspiration begin...

two yummy drink ideas

Two lights drinks you will love both taken from a WW website laaloosh

An easy DIY Frappuccino like from the ones we love at Starbucks

Or a delicious Mocktail (non-alcoholic) from Crystal Light. I just love fruity drinks.

So give them some love and check out their page for these delicious recipes.

Last night we went to my in-laws for dinner. Danny wanted all of us to walk out and see his tree stand so I decided to take an impromptu photo shoot. What do you think of my pictures?

We found 1 Deer track - we joked it must have been a 1 legged deer that took really long strides

Peekaboo I see you Sun

The next three pics are my favorite of the night...

I love this one of my in-laws, hubby and our kids. I also love how Lilly is holding her baby - too cute!

I love this one of Danny - so peacefull

Nights like this make me want to move to the country. I love working in the city but wouldn't mind living in the country!

P.S. I knew we were going to my in-laws but I didn't know we would be walking into the field. Guess that's why I call myself a city girl b/c this is what I was wearing...
I took each and every step very carefully.

Trader Joes

I am so excited! My mom and I are going to Trader Joes for the 1st time. I hear people talk about this place all the time and another WW blog I read always mentions food items in low points you can get at Trader Joes.

I am not really sure what to expect but am super excited. So is there anything special I just have to get there??? Any suggestions....

These sure do look delicious!

I am hoping to find Lilly some GF items cheaper than what my Kroger carries. And if not then at least I can say I experienced the store. Wish me luck.

Indiana has been hot and each weekend I take the girls to my dad's community pool. It's nice because there are usually a few children there the same ages as my girls so they get to make friends. Plus I my brother meets us there so we get to catch up.

I have been taking lots of photos of them "swimming" The girls don't really know how to swim but like to wade in the pool. Well a couple of weeks ago Gracie finally listened to me and realize she could stay a float with her water-wings. She has been having fun swimming since. She does a lot of kicking without going anywhere, but each week she does improve. (Blogger isn't allowing me to upload a cute video :( sorry guys! )

There are only a couple of weeks left before the pool closes. My goal is to get Lilly to "swim" in the big pool by herself, or at least float by herself.

Stay cool out there in blog land!
