The first one is an Arnold Palmer, which is a combination of lemonade and iced tea. I love it because sometimes just a lemonade is too sugary, and the plain tea dims it down a little, making it perfect for a hot summer day. You can buy them almost everywhere, but to be honest, my favorites are the ones made by Arizona Ice Tea Company. They sell at gas stations for 99 cents and last me an entire day of happiness.
Be aware though, drinking these addicting drinks may cause you to become a ‘usual’ at your nearest gas station or starbucks—How I know? I myself have fallen victim to these amazing summer delights and because of this I now have a new best friend at starbucks who has my drink ready for me before I’ve even worked my way up to order it!
My mom is really into using antique birdhouses to fill an empty space. At first the idea seemed a little bit odd to me, but now that she has accumulated a collection, they really bring a room together. Lately, the use of 5 or 6 clumped together, above our wardrobe, creates an intricate look with an adorable cottage feel to it. They are really quite beautiful to look at and we get lots of compliments on them. I found a few antique birdhouses similar to the ones we have in our home. and have posted them here for some inspiration!
