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.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

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
