5 on Friday!

Yep, it's that time again! Once again linking up with Darcie for 5 on Friday :)

ONE---->WATER TABLE FUN-We had the best weather this week-not too hot, not too cold. So we were outside a lot. Nothin' like added square footage for playing! ;) Hudson even got to play in the water too, and he loved it! Playing in the table is one of my favorite summer activities...I swear, it never gets old for kids or adults for that matter. ;) Good time for all ages!
This is the table we bought last year. Dawson is a fan, and it looks like Hudson is too :)
A. I love that they are starting to "play" together now. and B. That little hand kills me.  :)

TWO----> This free photo editing/collage making site is pretty much rockin' my world this week. I have been a collagin' fool [the above water table pic collage was made from this site] and the editing is really great too. There are options you can pay for if you want more, but they have plenty of free options to choose from! So, if you're looking for a way to display your pictures of if you're collage crazy like me--check this site out! 

THREE----> PRINTABLES. I heart them. Here is my favorite Father's Day printable that I found to use for next week:

FOUR----> MENU PLANNING. To say I suck at it would be the understatement of the year. I am embarrassed to admit how much we eat out. It really is pathetic. I hate cooking, but I like baking. Sign me up for anything I can throw together and put into the ole 9x13 casserole dish or crock pot! I think the actual problem is not the cooking, but more the planning and the grocery shopping {gumble, moan, grumble.}  So, I'm going to pick 3 new recipes to try for next week and hope they inspire me to menu plan for the...wait for it...entire week {GASP!} Once I stalk Pinterest for ideas, I plan on blogging about a meal plan. 

FIVE-----> PINEAPPLE-LEMONADE PUNCH. If your looking for a party punch this summer...this is the one. It's SO good! I love a nice, cold, refreshing punch. I made it last year for my son's birthday party and it was a hit! It's a non-alcoholic punch, but I'm sure if you are wanting to go the adult route it would be really tasty with a splash of vodka or rum. ;)

*1 cup Countrytime Lemonade mix
                                                      *2 cups cold water
                                                      *1 can of chilled pineapple juice {46 oz}
                                                      *2 cans chilled Sprite 


  1. Oh I love anything Pineapple so I bet that is delicious with some vodka in it. I love that water table, that is SO cute! I wish that was around when I was a kid! I saw you on the Friday link up ;)

    1. Thanks for stopping by!! I'm definitely going to try making the adult version of this punch. ;)

  2. Oh my goodness, that pineapple-lemonade punch looks amazing!! I will definitely be giving that recipe a taste ;)

    I also had to add that your little guys are too cute!! Absolutely adorable!

  3. Awww, thank you so much! The punch really is so good-It was a definitely score in the Pinterest department! :)


Don't be shy, I love to read your comments! :)
