Roller Skate Joy

I went shopping today for a new swimsuit. YUCK! I tried on quite a few and decided to forget it for awhile. Spring has just barely sprung anyway.

What I came home with was pure JOY, a new pair of roller skates! I was instantly transported right back to 1980, hearing the Xanadu soundtrack in my head.

I was giddy just trying them on. I skated up and down the aisle and all around while my toddler watched in amazement. Yes, I did.

I overheard a little boy talking to his dad about the lady roller skating. He wanted to do it too. Of course, he did.

Everyone deserves the bit of joy that something as simple as roller skates can bring, even a very tired Mommy.

Goodbye Sodas, Hello Fizzie Alternative

 Lately, my oldest son is REALLY into sodas. Or as we like to call it in Texas, "Coke." Yes, all sodas are affectionately called "Coke" in Texas. (I have no idea why, just one of those funny Texas things).

Well, here's my healthy alternative: Fizzies!

1 Tablespoon Any Flavor Frozen Fruit Juice Concentrate
Sparkling Water, such as Canada Dry
Place fruit juice concentrate in drinking glass. Fill glass with sparkling water leaving a couple of inches from the top of glass. Stir to mix. Adjust the amount of fruit juice concentrate to taste.
Get ready for the fizz! It really bubbles up. Kids get a big kick out of making this.
All the fizz, no caffeine, and a whole lot less sugar!
