Pellegrino & Lime with Blueberry Ice {Drink in a Blue Mason Jar}

summer drink recipe

Just popping in with a tasty summer drink recipe and to let you know that the blue mason jars you might have seen in my house tour are the new limited edition vintage inspired Ball Mason Jar! So cuuuute and USEFUL!

You can find them at Target, I just got another box today because you can’t have too many blue mason jars. That’s what I think, anyway. And I don’t want to have to wait another 100 years until they release them again, just in case.

You used to have to go spend a fortune on vintage ones if you wanted blue jars, but no more. At least for now! They come in a box of six so you’ll be all set for drinking glasses too!

I love them using them for vases or my famous “mason jar decor” too!

Summer drink recipe! A delicious drink for a blue mason jar!

Today the sun was out, YAY, so I made THIS refreshing summer drink. Of course, it tasted SO MUCH BETTER in the blue jar. Right? Looks cute and tastes delicious — that’s a win win.

Best of all, it’s easy to make AND it won’t add unnecessary calories, sugar or artificial colors to your diet. WINNING!

Fill blue mason jar with a few ounces of crushed ice. Or use frozen blueberries. Or both! I LOVE frozen blueberries!!! YUM!

Pour cold San Pellegrino mineral water over the ice or berries. Add a few squeezes of fresh lime juice, a mint leaf (and a lime wedge if you want!) and a stripey straw.

Refreshing & pretty & oh so fun.

And you can try variations according to what you have on hand or like — it is tasty with some frozen cranberry juice, too! Really, you can put whatever you want in it. You can even buy the flavored San Pellegrino drinks, but sometimes they are a little sweet for me.

As long as you drink out of a blue mason jar, it is going to taste and look real fancy — like you are on vacation!

These Mason Jars were sent to me by the Ball Jar people! But I did go out and buy more for myself, they are that awesome!

Gift Wrap, Tags & Ribbon Ideas for All Occasions {Use What You Have}

Creative Ways to Wrap a Gift

My girls came up with some creative ways to wrap presents this year using things we had around the house. They found a way to re-purpose everything from Trader Joe’s paper bags to flower hair clips! I thought I’d show ’em off today!

Even though Christmas is over, these ideas might jump start your creativity when wrapping gifts down the road for any occasion.

I don’t know about you, but we are pretty much still in holiday mode around here. Other than putting together a Christmas eve service for church, we’ve been staying in our jammies all day, eating too much, watching movies, sitting by the fire, chasing Jack around. My kids have all been home and it has been so wonderful to just hang out together! I wish it could stay this way forever. My niece and nephew are coming tomorrow so the festivities will continue!

Yesterday we still kept our jammies on all day (which might actually be because we’ve eaten too much pie and we need elastic waist bands), but started a new room makeover project I can talk about in the next few days.

And very soon I’ll be recapping my 2011 home projects! I will also catch up on photos I haven’t showed you, including afters of the bathroom project, progress reports on my entry, a new fireplace mantel, new light fixtures, and updates on the swine paint elimination progress! Yahoo, I have a lot of new things to share! But, for now, I’m going to keep hanging out in my jammies with my family by the fire.

Meanwhile, enjoy these creative gift wrap ideas — even more importantly, savor the last week of the holiday break!
