It's Magic!

I haven't given up on the challenge, I just haven't had alot of time to post lately.  Summer is short and I plan to make the most of it.  It's rainy this weekend so we decided to stay home instead of going to the trailer.  I was irritated (bit of an understatement) with the weather at first.  But in the end, a weekend at home has been good.  I even got a head start on some Canada Day items for next weekend.  Thank you, Pinterest. 
So, you know those nasty yellow stain you get in the pits of your white t-shirts?   You need to try this home remedy.  It worked amazingly well - it was magical, if you will.  I would have to say this has been the most successful thing I've tried so far.

I wasn't very successful in the challenge this week.  I tried lots of stuff but most of them weren't very enjoyable. 

First up was this workout .  It was tough but seemed very effective. I would say this was successful but I had a hard time sticking to it. It sort of made me want to vomit.  Intensely.  I am very out of shape.

To make myself feel better, I tried a new cocktail.  You know how I love my cocktails.  Sarasota Lemonade was, unfortunately, a fail.  I didn't enjoy the mashed raspberries.  I don't enjoy chewing my drinks and the flavour was a bit like floral cough syrup. I would try this one again using a different wine, I didn't use the one in the photos, and I would only float whole raspberries.  No mashing.

After coercing the Littlest Princess into a 30 minute hike through Killarney Lake, I rewarded her with this shit Hawaiian Blizzard.  We both agreed it was yucky. 

Sadly, 2 out of 3 this week were fails.

Simple Yet Effective

Still going strong on the Pinterest Challenge so this next one wasn't difficult, I just didn't think of it myself. 

Look at me keeping my wine cold with frozen grapes.  I love it when a plan comes together.

I Loves Me the Interweb!

I'm one of those people who can lose myself for hours surfing the web. What's not to love?  All the information I could possibly want at the tips of my fingers. For a few years now, I've been resisting the temptation of  I knew I would lose hours of my life that I would never get back.  However, this week I succumbed and I'm in love.  In addition to my love of the Internet, I also love to collect things.  Add those two together and the result is files upon files of items that I've saved because I *HAVE* to try.  Let me tell you, Pinterest is not helping. 

So this is what I've come up with - I'm doing a Pinterest Summer Challenge.  I am going to try at least one item per week that I pin to my boards.  If I fail, I'm leaving Pinterst.  I have no idea how that will be enforced since I also love instant gratification and breaking rules.  But that's not the point.   Here is the link to my boards, if you are intersted.

Here is what I'm trying today -Lunch .  Lunch for the Littlest Princess!  I'll have to sneak some nutrition on there somewhere.  But, c'mon, it's the weekend.  We need a treat now and then.

Update - the Littlest Princess enjoyed lunch.  Obviously, the taste was lacking but she enjoyed the novelty. 

Also tried this Hair today.  I didn't notice anything different in my hair. Yes, I have naturally curly hair but I blew it out a bit today to try this.
