Smoothie Fun

I'm addicted to the plastic summer isle at Walmart. 
Every year I find myself wanting every piece of that colorful fun stuff.
Please tell me you know which isle I'm talking about?
Everthing is super cheap, so I fill my cart and then realize at the checkout..oops, cheap things add up!

Yesterday I was walking around Walmart and that plastic isle started calling my name.
So, of course, I headed over for a quick look.

I've been wanting to get a co-worker of mine a little thank you gift...
and her twin daughters love making I thought this would be fun.

Colorful tumblers, napkins, and straws.
I added the little notebook and made a smoothie label to put on it.
I thought they could use it for recipes.

Easy, cheap and FUN.

Wouldn't this make a great end of the year teacher gift?!

Great gift. That isle calls my name too!!! I have the plates in many colors. I store them in a basket, when the whole family is here, we eat many meals outside on the deck. We always use the 'summer china'!!!

I know I've told you this before but I must tell you again. I'm loving your new blog design. So bright and vibrant like this cute post!

There's nothing that says summer time better than some brightly colored straws, cups and smoothies. Heck! If I thought that buying brightly colored stuff would bring on the sun and warmth, I'd hop over to WalMart and blow some coin. Can you believe we got 6 inches of snow last week?

I know that aisle too well. I always find myself looking, picking things up, but trying to make myself put them back. I love this gift idea. I am going to look there for end of year teacher's gifts. You come up with the cutest gifts!

**Catching up...
-love the new blog header!
-agree that 40 changes your perspective, I could care less about what others think anymore!
-canNOT wait until summer!! Hurry up!!!
-LOVE the story of Brady and your neighbor. LOVE.
-he is such a strong competitor! I know these early year disappointments will help them later in life, but it I do notice it is wayyyy harder for me to see Brod lose than it is for him to take it. I should be thankful for that!
