Coffee or Chocolate

If you had to give up Coffee or Chocolate for one year which would you give up?

Hands down it would be chocolate for me, I just couldn't survive with out coffee. I love my coffee, the stronger the better but I do take cream in my coffee.

You Capture: Fruit

Is there anything better than a bowl of mixed fruit? I just wish someone would cut it up for me!

True Lemon Raspberry Lemonade I love you!

I think I just may be addicted to the True Lemon Raspberry Lemonade. I was at the grocery store last week and picked up a few packs and usually I don't like this kind of stuff but thought I would try it. What I love about it is that it is naturally sweetened with Stevia, low calorie and super yummy. I love water by itself but this takes it to a whole new level and the best part is that they come in packs that you can just add to a bottle of water. My son doesn't like just water but loves this and hubby loves it too. Most water enhancers have artificial sweeteners which I avoid. Have you tried it?

Grand Haven!

Last weekend we spent a long weekend in Grand Haven. We had so much fun, biking, swimming and eating a lot of ice cream. This was the first time for us and we hope to visit again soon. Family vacations are just never long enough are they?

The Best Party Punch

I have always liked party punch or some call it shower punch. It is so simple but so delicious.

Party Punch

2 liter of ginger ale
1/2 gallon of rainbow sherbet
2 liter of Hawaiian Punch

Mix the ginger ale and Hawaiian Punch and then scoop out the rainbow sherbet and put on top of the punch. You can also reserve some Hawaiian punch and make some ice creams if you would like it extra cold.

Aloha Friday: Harry Potter

Are you a Harry Potter fan?

Will is crazy about Harry Potter so we have been having a movie marathon trying to watch all of the movies before the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows comes out next week. I have to admit I wasn't a big fan but find the movies intriguing, I am now a Harry Potter fan.
