5 Fun Limeade Recipes [Summer Drinks]

After seeing Amy's fun post on making your own limeade, I realized that we haven't had any limeade yet this summer, homemade or otherwise!  This whole moving thing is killing the summer buzz, so tomorrow we will be squeezing some fresh limes and enjoying some DIY limeade.  You can check out Amy's limeade recipe over at The Idea Room.

If you have already tackled regular limeade this summer, here are a few other flavors you might want to give a whirl.

You only need four ingredients for the yummy cherry limeade from Bakingdom.  And she shares her recipe in full batch or single glass.

The Neely's have a recipe for raspberry limeade over at Food Network.  With fresh raspberries in season, now is the perfect time to give this a try.

For a fun summer twist, Good Life Eats mixed two of my favorite things, limeade and watermelon, to make this sparkling watermelon limeade treat.

And if you are looking for something with a little less sugar, Richella shared her favorite recipe for diet limeade.   She uses a sparkling water instead of simple syrup to cut back on the calories in this fun drink.

We are putting all of these limeade recipes on the must try list for the summer!

Mother's Day Gift Wrapping

Tissue Paper Flower Gift Wrap from One Little Project

I always have kraft paper on hand for gift wrapping because it is so inexpensive and easy to dress up.  I love the tissue paper flower accents that Debbie used to decorate these packages.  This is a simple and beautiful gift wrap idea for your Mother's Day gifts!

You can check out how to gift wrap with tissue paper flowers over at One Little Project.

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day [April 2]

April 2 is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day.  Who knew?  This might be one of the easiest days to celebrate all year!  PB&J sandwiches for dinner for everyone!!

Or you could try something a little different, like pb&j pops, peanut butter and jelly monkey bread, or yummy Peanut butter and jelly french toast!

4 Easy April Fool's Day Pranks

I think April Fool's Day can be fun, but I'm not great at remembering to plan ahead and add gelatin to milk or add Googly eyes to all of the items in the fridge.

If you are looking for a last minute April Fool's Day Prank that takes zero planning, here are a couple easy ideas to get you started.

1 - Tape a piece of paper to the bottom of a mouse, covering the sensor.  The mouse will not work and it will quickly, but briefly, drive the user crazy.  Great for home or work and takes about 5 seconds.  You can do the same thing with the TV remote and some tape.

2 - Change the language setting on the desktop, cell phone, or other device.  Then enjoy watching them try to change it back.  On an iPhone or iPad you just go to Settings > General >Language & Region.  A quick Google search should get you instructions for other devices.

Some desktops will let you change the orientation of the screen as well.  Good luck trying to change the language back from Japanese to English when everything is upside down!

3 - Get in the break room fridge and turn around all of the tabs on soda cans.  What once was the easy task of cracking open a drink now seems almost impossible.  And at first glance it looks like there is an actual issue with the can!

4 - If you have an iPhone, download this typing gif ... you know the three dots that appear when someone is responding to your text:

Send this gif to your friends and make them wait...and wait...and wait for your next text.

Sweet Treats for Spring

Easter was super early this year, so now we are almost to April and don't really have anything to look forward to until the kids get out of school the week of Memorial Day!  I feel like we have had a ton of days off from school recently and now there are no breaks until the end!  It is going to be a long 10 weeks.

I am trying not to wish away Spring.  The weather has been amazing here and we have enjoyed a lot of time outside (even thought pollen count has been amazingly high as well).  I have been putting together a fun Pinterest board full of yummy Spring dessert ideas.  We probably won't make even a fraction of them, but we will definitely give a couple a try as the weather warms up.  Maybe they will be just what we need to survive until  Summer vacation!

Just looking at the beautiful pictures helps a little!  Don't you think?
