Sunday Scoop

So it's Sunday...It's not that something exciting happened today, but I just wanted to post some thoughts.

1. I just wanted to say 'Thank You!!' to Brooke. She nominated me for this little award.
I am honored. It was a good way to start off the weekend. In order for me to accept this award, I have to nominate 5 others. I'm somewhat new to the blogging world and I really don't have any dedicated followers so I'll just nominate the same people when I got this award. Thank you again Brooke!

2. I received a phone call from SAM. She told me that Michael's had the Martha Stewart Halloween punches. I had to have them and made a trip to Michael's. Luckily, the nearest one is about 5 miles from me. Martha Stewart had 4 Halloween Border punches. I only got two, the picket fence and the dripping goo. There was also a bat and pumpkin border punches. I also got an 8 x 8 paper pad. It's stinking cute. I love Halloween!

3. So on Friday I get my usual Iced Green Tea w/ melon syrup at Starbucks and find out they have this promotion called 'Treat Receipt'. It's where you buy a drink in the morning, get your receipt stamped and bring it in after 2 pm and you can get any medium-size blended drink for $2. Needless to say I have made 6 trips to Starbucks in 3 days. With my 'Treat Receipt', I got drinks that I normally wouldn't get. I can't drink Frappucinos because the milk, coffee and all that sugar that goes in the drink upset my stomach, but for $2 I had to have one (or 3!)
The first day my stomach really paid the price from drinking that reduced-price Mint Chocolate Chip Frappucino. You would have thought that I learned a lesson, but inner cheapskate kept telling me that it was a deal to get these $2 drinks. It's not really a deal if I don't drink them all and I get sick from it. Oh well...

4. I made 7-Up pie. Soooo Yummmy...Here's the recipe if you want to make it yourself.

7-Up Pie

1 small package of lime jello
2 - 7 oz bottles of 7-up (I just measure 7 oz in a measuring cup)
1 small container of Cool Whip
1 graham cracker crust

Heat 7 oz of 7-Up.
Dissolve jello into heated 7-Up.
Add other 7 oz of 7-Up.
Refrigerate until it is the consistency of egg whites.
Fold in Cool Whip. Pour into graham cracker crust.
Refrigerate until set. Enjoy!

It's a nice, cool summer treat.

5. I'm not much of sports person, but the Olympics are fun to watch. Did you catch the opening ceremonies? Some guy was flying then running around the top of the entire stadium! Craziness!

I hope everyone has a great week. I think I'm going to work on my ATC challenge and watch the Olympics.

Mata ne!!

What a total SCORE at Michael's! I didn't even know Martha Stewart had Halloween punches! Girl, you're like me with the bargain and the sugary drinks. There's always a stomachache, guaranteed but was it a bargain? Heck, yeah! If you like the iced tazo teas (I like them unsweetened) you can save your cup and go back in for a 50 cent refill that same day! The passion tea is so darn yummy!
