My Weekend + a Recipe

Happy Monday! I can't believe it's already JULY - can you? This year seems to be flying by, and we have so many exciting things happening in the next few months. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend; mine was spent relaxing, running errands, and taking care of my sick husband. Did you do anything exciting? 

a '32 week' photo...I am loving my hat collection lately!

And I'll leave you with the easiest, most delicious summer lemonade recipe. Remember the recipe I found on Pinterest last week? I decided to alter it to make it simpler and a bit healthier (I didn't want to use an entire cup of sugar). 

watermelon & strawberry lemonade 

You will need:
- 1-2 cups Simply Lemonade (depending on how much you want to make)
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1-2 cups of watermelon
- blender

Combine lemonade, frozen strawberries, and watermelon in the blender and blend until smooth (I know...writing a 'recipe' isn't even necessary...but I just had to share how simple it was!). The frozen strawberries make the lemonade a little 'slushy,' and it seems like more of a treat. My husband couldn't believe how delicious it was only using these 3 ingredients...he thought I made it from scratch! This is a great 4th of July recipe, and is sure to please! 

Have a great Monday, ladies!
