Celebrating National Hammock Day!

Oh! My! Gosh!

As most of you know, one of my VERY favorite places to be is in my backyard, laying in my hammock, listening to my girls giggle as they play.  Sometimes we like to share the hammock together as well.

I was SO excited last week when I learned, 1) there is a National Hammock Day and 2) #TCBYGrocery wanted to help me celebrate!

I think I literally shrieked in excitement!  HA!

So while Mads was at Dance Camp last week, Hubs and MG and I headed to Walmart.

Not only were we celebrating Hammock Day this weekend, we were also getting together with Hubs side of the family at the lake.  Needless to say, we needed to get a LOT of stuff.

We had a GREAT time at the lake and while it was relaxing, it was HOT!  We swam a LOT and enjoyed our time together.

Once we got home, there was nothing more that I wanted to do than put my feet up.  Yeah, I know we just spent the weekend relaxing at the lake but, there is nothing like being home.

As soon as we got home, I headed out to my hammock!

We decided to also grill and celebrate one of my new favorite days!

Since Hubs and I did a lot of the cooking this weekend, we decided to keep it simple.  We grilled chicken and corn, this is one of our staple meals during the summer.

After dinner, we brought out the YUMMY TCBY treats we picked up!

The girls could not wait to try these!  Mads went strait for the Vanilla Sandwiches while MG HAD to have the Fudge Bar!  I decided on the Fudge Bar and Hubs went for the Sandwich.  We all LOVED these yummy treats and I LOVE that they are low on calories!

We had to eat them fast though, it was still REALLY hot out.

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.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
