Bloggers Brags Weekly Pinterest Party - Week 87

Ever since giving up my daily Starbucks frappacino two months ago, I have been really paying attention to how much I crave sugar. So part of my Summer Bucket List included creating new smoothie combinations that the kids would actually drink. We've been managing to keep it healthy (for the most part!) with smoothies like these:


Summer also means we get out a lot and enjoy everything awesome in San Diego. This week I took the kids to the San Diego Botanical Gardens, a true San Diego gem. We enjoyed a full day at Legoland California - be sure to enter the family 4 pack of tickets giveaway! Speaking of giveaways, I teamed up for a Sizzling Summer Blog Hop Cash Giveaway so don't miss out!

And I finally got my 4th of July crafts posted - feel free to pin them for next year - but really you can do them now since patriotism is a year round affair, right?

My favorite posts from last week's party:

Blanca shared this Relaxing Ladies Lunch Tablescape over at Smart Party Planning and I tell ya it makes me want to host a ladies luncheon in my backyard! Just look at the details and the inviting colors she assembled. Blanca, if you ever want to have me over to your place, I'd love to come relax with you! Now that we are at the mid point of summer, don't you agree that we need to take a little time to plan something nice for ourselves?

This Buster Bar Dessert shared by Grandparents Plus is beckoning me to find something to celebrate! Hmm... maybe I could serve this at the luncheon I want to host. I'm a sucker for caramel and Oreo cookie crust and ice cream.... don't you want to make it right now? A friend of mine used to work at Dairy Queen in high school so I'll have to see if I can do this justice!  

Keeping it all in balance! I'm so looking forward to seeing what you all link up this week! I pinned so much great stuff last week. Perfect window shopping I tell ya.
