My Summer So Far....

Just thought I'd give you all a little update, I have been meaning to write a post but get caught up behind the scenes and forget to write about what I have been doing other than reviews! Now that it's summer time I am excited about having my kiddies home but they don't seem as interested in hanging out with me... 


Normally I struggle to keep my kiddies entertained all summer, but now that they are older I have noticed they don't really want to hang with Mom! I have come up with so many cool ideas, crafts, experiments, and just a bunch of fun things to do and now my kids aren't really into it. Since we have a blended family we only have all five kids every other week, then most of the opposite weeks it's just our daughter. So I hope to do a few things with her first then I can let you guys know if the craft or whatever we decide to do is something worth your time! 


I have been pretty sick the last couple of weeks, I keep catching things thanks to my fibromyalgia. This latest episode was/is bronchitis. Since I was pretty sick I ended up cutting back on my coffee intake. I don't know if I have mentioned it much, but I LOVE coffee. It was definitely strange not drinking it while I was sick but the weirdest part has been the aftermath of not drinking coffee. Of course all this talk about coffee has me craving a cup now. I am planning on trying to make my own iced coffee. I have made my own before and it turned out pretty gross, so this time I asked my barista a few questions. I have read on other blogs, like last year, about making your own iced coffee but never ended up making it. It's time I tried making my own because the store/shop iced coffee is just too expensive! The Pioneer Woman has a great make your own iced coffee recipe this is one I want to try, she makes it look pretty easy, the only thing is I might use my coffee of choice. We'll see how it goes :)


Lastly, I just wanted to let you all know since my sickness has eased up on me I will be working to bring some more great reviews and giveaways. I would love to hear what you all would like to see reviewed and what giveaways you'd like to enter. It gives me a good idea of what companies to contact and what sorts of things you would like my opinion on. So if you have a second leave me a comment and let me know. Oh that reminds me, I had a glitch in the commenting system I was using so I lost all my previous comments :( Oh it was actually really sad since I love your comments. I am now using the regular comment box and it will open a new window, hope it easier for you all! Have a wonderful day!!!
