We would love for you to follow us on twitter!

This week Kristy from Mommy Hates Cooking is our official party host! She is sharing her YUMMY Butterfinger Ice Cream Recipe! Hello! That just SCREAMS summer! It is really, really good!

This week I scoured through all of the AWESOME links you guys submitted and narrowed it down to my top 5 4th of July Party Ideas! Pair any (or all) of these up with Krity's Butterfinger Ice Cream and you can't have anything but an amazing 4th!

1) These amazing looking Coke Float Cupcakes from Stephanie over at The Tip Toe Fairy look SO good! I might just whip these up for our family reunion this weekend!

2) If you are like me, you go through a lot of milk every week. I always wonder what cute crafts are out there just waiting to be made with the empty jugs. Noreen of Crafty Journal made a CUTE 4th of July Garland out of an empty milk jug! How creative is that?!?!

3) What better way to cool off on the 4th than with an ice cold popsicle? Kelly of Little Wonders' Day shared these yummy Watermelon Paletas with us last week. 

4)  This cute Bandana Fourth of July Mantel, from Kristin at Homespun with Love, is sure to set the mood of an awesome celebration!

5) Need just one more sweet dessert for your get together? Check out these Red, White & Blue Cookie Cups from Keri at Shaken Together!

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.

For Such a Time as This

This post is a sponsored post from Family Christian, all opinions are my own.
You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
