First Lemonade Stand + This Week's Menu

Monday, June 25, 2018

Did you enjoy your weekend? We did over here! On Saturday we played at home and outside with the neighbors, I ran to the mall to do a return, and we went out to dinner at a local pizza bar. On Sunday I helped C set up her FIRST lemonade stand! She had been asking to do this for a while, so when I saw the cutest lemonade-themed stuff in Target's dollar section, I scooped it up. We had a few neighbors, a couple of landscapers, and daddy stop by as "customers," and with each one, she completely lit up. Good reminder for this momma: it's the littlest things that make kids beam with pride, and I will definitely be pulling over for any lemonade stands I see this summer. ;) 



After lemonade and H's nap, our neighbors brought us as guests to their pool. The girls loved swimming for a few hours before dinner. They are two little fish.


What's on your menu this week? Ours is pretty simple:

Sunday: Leftovers (chicken enchilada soup)

Monday: Breakfast for dinner (eggs, tater tots, Morningstar "sausage")

Tuesday: Stir-fry chicken with broccoli and rice (cauliflower rice for me!)

Wednesday: Baked ziti (we use this sauce in it... so good)

Thursday: Pepperjack cheeseburgers on the grill & corn on the cob

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: Homemade pizza (C loves making a pepperoni smiley face)


Hope today marks a great start to your week!

    1. Thanks Emily! :) I can't take credit -- the strawberries were all her, and she insisted on putting them on the edge of the cup like that ("mom, I've seen people do this!"). This age is the best, haha!

  3. Oh bless her - such a lovely thing to do! Caspar once made a sign to sell toys and put notes though children's doors and laid it all out on the lawn and no-one came (he was about 5) - thank goodness he forgot about it. It really does teach them life skills though and you are right about it building their confidence. Your week's menu sounds delicious - have you posted the chicken enchilada soup recipe / can you?

    1. Oh, Joanne -- that kind of thing (nobody showing up) breaks my heart! But you're right, all life lessons. I actually linked the soup recipe where it's listed under "Sunday" -- let me know if you can't access the link and I'll email it to you or send it via IG!

    1. Thank you! It was one of those parenting moments where I thought, wow, I can't believe I have a kid old enough to want to do a lemonade stand! Haha. My stomach is growling too -- it's 9:45, is it too soon for lunch?! ;)

  6. She is so adorable with the lemonade stand! We also try to stop and pull over when we see one and I love to see how happy the kids get. It really is the simple things in life that can bring the most joy. Sierra Beautifully Candid

    1. Thanks so much, and it's so true! We forget sometimes, as adults with all of these "big" things to think about, how much the small things amount to in their world. I love that you pull over for lemonade stands!

    1. Thank you, Gentry! We wish you could've stopped by too -- with each "customer", she just lit up! :) These are the days. xo
