New Rule

For every one of these I drink...


 I also have to drink one of these.


Yesterday I drank FIVE of the top one....NONE of the bottom one.
And today I feel like cr*p.
So...today I will follow the rules!

Wondering what that little Hula skirted, tiered, FABULOUSNESS is in the background?
It's a cupcake stand I made for Megan's Luau Birthday Party next week.
She's gonna be SEVEN. Eeeek!


Some cardboard rounds, ric rac, fabric, hot glue, and paper cups!
Oh yes...and a grass skirt and some silk orchids.
So cute for how easy it was!

Hope everyone is having a good week. Today is the last day of swim lessons and surf camp for the kids. As well as Matt's first FULL official day of Summer. No football....no school...no birds....nada. We are excited to play with Daddy non-stop for the next 21 days. We have BBQ's, weddings, the Circus, Birthdays, Movies on the Lawn, Paddleboarding, and S'mores on the books...Then Double Days begin and our life is consumed with X's O's and Friday Night Lights! These 21 days are my favorite time of year.

Ooh, I hope you are better at keeping to your rules than I am! I make rules like this for myself all the time. Never keep to them, though!

I have a pink camelbak bottle that I fill up in the morning after day care drop off and I have to finish it before lunch. Then I fill it again and have to finish it before day care pick up. Helps me!

Hope you enjoy your 21 days of perfection! Hope to see some beach days in there with some beach runs!

My husband is a football coach too ... so I can totally identify with your countdown. He also loves Diet Coke. :)

any instructions on the cupcake stand... tried to make one last year and failed. how did you cut the paper? my bottom tier was bigger than any paper I had so I was going to have to piece it together - did you have that same issue?

I (heart) Diet Coke, but I can only drink 1 a day!!!! I leave big glass of water on my counter all day long and put a wide straw in it. My rule is every time I pass my kitchen island (which is a lot) I have to take a big drink. I probably drink 1/2 gallon (or more) of water a day that way.
