Summer treats

The flavors of summer are nostalgic. If your a little ways form a beach, a local grocer has the solution. Take a look at what they’re offering their patrons.

Super yummy!! Grab your seafood bibs!

“Yup” moments 

Funny how you see something randomly and it makes you say to yourself, “ain’t that the truth”.

Happened today when we were out with some family/guests at, of all places, Kings Dominion amusement park.

To me, it’s a great parenting motto.

Here it is:

Throwback

Here’s a throwback Thursday for everyone. Tonight is family night at the drive-in movie theater!!! 

This is a great family activity for the whole family. Check your local areas for this flash from the past with modern day appeal!

Wind down

As summer is winding down I’m sure all us “resourceful ” moms have taken advantage of the free bowling games at your local bowling alleys.

BUT… Don’t forget to check the front desk at the alleys. Our local bowling alley has some great promos. Such as an “all you can bowl” for $5.99, specific times of course; but it makes for a great date night with the spouse!

Shift gears

When there’s sharp lightning and sudden sheets of rain, you improvise.

Broiled the marshmallows on the graham cracker for 5-6 minutes. When the marshmallows are golden in top, pull them out and top it with the chocolate and other graham cracker .

Kind neighbors 

Yesterday I shared the sewing desk , today I HAVE to show you the first gem I discovered when we moved here.

Below is a picture of a wrought iron patio set that a neighbor was not able to take with them on their move. It came with an umbrella and umbrella stand, but since we have a covered back patio we set it aside for now.

Like the desk? It’s been reprinting and needs a little TLC in the form of sanding the old paint and getting a fresh coat. It’s a solid set, might be 15 years old but in awesome shape aside from cosmetic repairs.

Yes, it was also free. Maybe it’s true that “someone’s trash is another man’s treasure “. Either way it was win win for us both.

(Please don’t pay mind to the “lived in” items on the table)
