Celebrating Summer with Nestle and Tombstone

Now that school is out and the stress of dance recital is over, we can focus on SUMMER!  YAY!
#grabsummerfun, #cbias, playing outside
My girls would live outside this time of year, if I would let them.  We are usually outside from the time breakfast is over, until it is time for bed.  We have a few breaks and come inside when it gets really hot, but the majority of our day is spent outside.

A few days ago we decided to have a little celebration to officially welcome summer.  We headed to  Walmart and picked up a few items so we can #GrabSummerFun!

We picked out some new sidewalk chalk, some new bubbles, a Tombstone Pizza and some Nestle Drumsticks.  To see my entire path to purchase, check out my Google+ story.

They were giving out free samples of pizza and mini Drumsticks while we were there!  AWESOME!
They were also passing out pizza and Drumstick shaped fliers with coupons inside!  WooHoo!
bubbles, pizza, ice cream, drumsticks
Everything we needed was very easy to find.

Once we got home it was time to CELEBRATE!
We decided to grill the pizza, while the grill was heating up the girls played with their new sidewalk chalk and bubbles.
 
 The grill was finally ready!  I put the pizza on, waited the 15 minuets and......
 
  The top looked great, the bottom was BURNT!  Not just a little burnt, the above pic is deceiving, it was the color of charcoal!  HAHA!  But, it was still good....once you picked the charred pieces off.

After we got through that fiasco it was time for ice cream and more playing.

We had such a great time!  Now just to finish cleaning the pool out so we can REALLY enjoy summer!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on Hartstrings.com and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up Hartstrings.com and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
