Our Saturday morning has been spent running around. As a family, we hit a few thrift stores and then went to a couple garage sales. I think I have my Dad's treasure hunting gene. I'm always on the look out for things that I can paint, restore or just plain old great deals on stuff that we need. I've almost been considering getting a space at one of those vintage flea market places. I mean, how cool would it be to find deals, fix, paint, re-upholster or whatever is needed and then be able to sell the items? To me, it sounds like great fun!
While we were out, we didn't find hardly anything but, it was still fun as a family. We stumbled upon a truck that Judah fell in love with and since it was a super price, we got it for him and made a deal him. Judah agreed that he will give away a few of his big trucks, since he now has a new truck and when we got home, he eagerly ran to his room and picked out a couple of trucks to giveaway. I'm so proud of him!
Now my guys are out doing yard work and I'm getting ready to join them. It's a beautiful sunny day around here and I can't wait to get out and enjoy it. My garden has been growing well and I think I'll be eating the first Snap Peas from it this weekend. The other night while I was out there, I noticed that a hatched Robin's egg was sitting in my garden. Those eggs are the perfect shade of blue and since I was little, I've always felt like finding a Robin's egg is good luck. Well, I actually don't believe in luck but, you know what I mean.
To wrap this up, I wanted to share a recipe for some super easy Banana Chocolate Puddin' Pops that I made yesterday. I'm declaring this summer as "The Summer of the Popsicle" so, I'm trying to make all sorts of homemade Popsicles and if they turn out, I'll share my adventure on here.
In a blender mix:
•1 ripe banana
•1 package of chocolate pudding mix
•1 1/2 cups of milk
