Dining Room Table Activity


My niece and I went to The Dallas World Trade Center today to get some jewelry.

I needed to restock at Golightly's and she always likes to go for fun. She's headed off to college on Monday, so she needs some jewelry!

I had everything laid out on my dining room table to price it:

I wanted to get tons of those bubble necklaces, but they were almost out! I may try to sell some on my blog soon. Or you could fork up $150 at J.Crew for one if you want?

And I love these headbands too:


And another thing happening on my dining room table is TEA! I have never, ever, ever been a tea drinker. I think it tastes like dirt. BUT I have to quit my Coke habit. (coca cola, not the other kind). I made unsweet tea and mixed in some low sugar lemonade. And it's pretty good.

I am going to allow myself to have Coke one day a week. Today was the day I had some and it was heavenly! Way better than dirty tea!

And this Lemonade Pie is neither low sugar or unsweet, but it's yummy!

It's a summer staple around here.

I always make 2 pies at a time.

1 large container of cool whip
1 can of frozen lemonade or limeaid
2 cans of eagle brand milk
2 pie crusts

Mix the cool whip and eagle brand, then stir in the thawed lemonade.
Pour into the baked pie crusts and freeze!


Then you have one pie for you and one for a friend!

I drink only a couple of cokes a week and drink tea on the other days. I love iced tea. . . sweet or unsweet. The pie looks super yummy. I love lemonade!! And the necklaces are really cute!!

I am a Coke-aholic too, and was diagnosed w Type 2 diabetes a few months ago. I have gotten myself down to one (or maybe two) Cokes a day. I have been drinking the Lipton Green Citrus flavor tea and love it. I had tried the bottled tea, but it was either full of sugar or diet-y tasting (I don't do diet!). I found it in bags and have a tea maker at both my house and my camper. If you don't like tea, try it, it doesn't taste like regular tea. Good luck with your habit, I'll think of you when I want to have a coke, and maybe it will be easier for me not to break down and have an icy, delicious coke!

As a diabetic who had to give up her Cokes, sweet tea and caffeine (the horror!)... I can promise you that after awhile you won't miss it! Really, it's true!

I love lemonade and iced tea mixed together! Don't they call that an "Arnold Palmer"?

Love the necklaces, too! Totally in right now!

Have you tried Peach Iced Tea? I love anything peach and it adds just the right sweetness.

Can anyone with a resale certificate get in to Market? I'd love to put some jewelry in my booth but don't know how to get in. I'm a newbie. :)
