WOW six months since I have blogged! That is terrible! It's not that I didn't have anything to blog about...just other things got in the way, one called LIFE! Time just seems to get away from me lately. Like for instance, July is almost over! Really? How did that happen??? Before you know it, it will be Christmas <gasp> yes, I said it, CHRISTMAS! Not that I am ready for it, but I sure am ready for cooler temps! It has been brutal the last few weeks. I thank God daily that I don't have to work outdoors and I also thank Him daily for my poor husband to survive the heat each day...from 5am until 7pm! He has no energy for anything else and I can't say I blame him. So bring on the cooler temps....soon!!

We took a weekend vacation to Biloxi at the end of June...had a great time. Spent some time visiting a couple of the casino's and just did some relaxing.  We didn't win any big money but we did okay...enough to keep us playing. It was my first time visiting the Beau Rivage and I must say I really enjoyed it...beautiful place. Had a wonderful FREE buffet at the IP and it was delicious! 

Last weekend we had a wonderful time seeing Garth in concert! We surprised the kids with tickets as birthday gifts to them and had such a great time. It made me feel so good to see them enjoying themselves so much. And Garth....WOW he put on an amazing show. If I could have, I would have gone back on Sunday night!!!One of the best concerts I have ever been to....ever!!!

So after the last couple of weekends, this one seems so boring. Yet it's nice to sit and do nothing. It much to hot to go and sit outside, so inside it is...with a nice cold adult beverage!! Ahhhh yes, life is good.

Here is a nice sweet cool summer recipe for you.


1/4 cup water
1/3 cup COUNTRY TIME Lemonade Flavor Drink Mix
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
1 ready-to-use graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz.)

Add water to drink mix in large bowl; stir until mix is dissolved.
Stir in milk. Add COOL WHIP; stir gently until blended.
Spoon into crust. Freeze 6 hours or until firm.
