So now they're all awake and about and I am putting my hopes in the afternoon nap time and turning to the Internet for company over the age of 6.
First off, I must share my new favorite non-or-alcoholic drink recipe with you all, it would be perfection for a memorial day cookout libation addition.
Agave (or Simple Syrup) Lemon Drop:
What you need:
* 2 whole lemons, cut into 1/4ths
* 8 oz bottled lemon juice
* 8 oz Agave nectar (or simple syrup, which is 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water, boiled until sugar is dissolved.
* 2 cups water
* 1 cup vodka, if you are having fun
Mix the Agave, lemon juice, water, (and vodka if you want). Squeeze lemon juice from lemon fourths and throw them into the pitcher. Add as much ice as you need or want and serve it up.
All will be happy and content.
Ok, now for some internet fun spots for your weekend couch sitting:
Carolyn tells the most amazing birth story ever and serves to seriously validate my claims that I didn't just "do natural child birth wrong" when I screamed so loudly that nurses came in from down the hall to ask me to quiet down. I dealt with the same *issue* as her and I won't use her terminology because this is not a birth story so you didn't sign up for it, (but if it was I would totally use the words.) Anyways, when you deal with what she dealt with, no amount of deep breathing helps- only screaming and biting and other such coping mechanisms- and even then, nothing helps. Such a great read, SUCH a cute baby!!
Jenny is always interesting and compelling and this is no exception.
Christy does a great recap of the Mad Med finale, and succeeds in making me try to think more positively about the whole thing. While I am not quite there (I'm a Don cynic) I am still mulling it over and her recap will continue to help me through it all. (I'm being a tad dramatic, but so is the show)
I am always on the hunt for a good non-Jillian workout that will really give me bang for my buck, and this one recommended to me by my friend, Sarah has done just that.
I have loved my trusty firmoo glasses for a while now and recently asked on the gram whether my more recent pair was too large for my face, which everyone was super affirming about and so I started sporting them. I just couldn't do it, BUT! I needed sunglasses really badly and was so excited when I realized that a local America's Best could tint my too-large ones for a mere $15 and I am so happy to finally be able to shield my tender eyes after at least 10 years of not being able to because I would not shell out the cash for prescription ones. Behold!
Also, since I know you've been dying to know-- I found a swim suit!!
Happy Memorial Day!
