This is how we Celebrated National Splurge Day!
Smoothies and Milk Shakes! The girls got cheesecake milkshakes 1/2 off at Sonic. I had a Strawberry Smoothie with Whipped Cream. They loved their Splurge Day. Look at them, jumping for joy!
Today is National Cupcake Lover's Day. Are you a Cupcake lover? I'm not afraid to admit it, I am!
What we have here is a Snickerdoodle Cupcake. Mmm, Mmm good.
Snickerdoodle Cupcakes are so delicious.
You start by baking up a delicious spice cake recipe, in cupcake liners.
Then you frost them with Cinnamon frosting.
The essential garnish is sugar and cinnamon.
If you don't feel inclined to bake something you might want to get your nose checked :)
It's National Iced Tea Day, look how I celebrated today:
It's national Iced Tea Day! To celebrate, for lunch today; I had a large salad- mixed greens, cucumber, tomato, black beans, chicken, carrot and balsamic dressing with a Lipton Sparkling Iced Tea in Peach flavor.
I don't typically go for peach tea but this tea is really delicious! It has just the right amount of carbonation and the peach flavor reminds me of warm summer days, perfect fit!
National Gingerbread Day, in June. . What I don't plan to do today is make up some Gingerbread.
But here is a throw-back from Winter.
Look at the Gingerbread cookies we made in Winter. Aren't they fun? So much imagination and tasty too!
Happy National Doughnut Day, thank you for coming by to celebrate with us!
Mediterranean Orzo- Fresh Deli Salad, heart strawberries and Foster Farms- Honey Glazed Chicken Wings are packed into the Bento today.
For breakfast today the kids will enjoy: Lifeway Organic Probiotic Whole Milk Kefir and a delicious cream filled chocolate doughnut 💕
In a two is better then one world, let's celebrate with two themes today. National Old Maids Day and National Cheese Day.
Gallo Salame has been stuffed with Cream Cheese. Trader Joe's- Gummy Bears and Annie's- Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks fill one section of the Bento. The top right section of the Bento is stuffed with NatureBox- Asiago & Cheddar Cheese Crisps. A Cheesy and satisfying combination.
When I think Old Maids; I think Caramel, I found these delicious Walker's Toffees at World Market. They are very tasty and have the texture of chewy caramel.
I placed a few toffee's in a little container and added the container to the lunch boxes with Juicy Juice- Apple juice and Apple & Eve- Organic Lemonade. Now this is a celebration!
I'm going to use Trader Joe's Organic Apple Blueberry Fruit Wrap for the Running Theme today. I cut the sandwich into a shoe shape and cut the fruit wrap into matchsticks, how cute! They make great shoelaces for my running shoe sandwich.
After much debate I decided to include the match slick fruit wrap separately, I included a little note "Happy National Running Day- Use the enclosed 'laces' to crate some cute sneakers :)" I think the kids are going to enjoy lacing their own running shoes, how fun! I hope your family Celebrates National Running Day today, I'll see you tomorrow to Celebrate National Old Maids Day.
Cucumber rounds, with Ken's Steakhouse- Honey Mustard Dressing fills the Little Dipper, Haribo- Gold Bears and creamy fruit salad (mango, apple, banana, shredded coconut, mini marshmallows mixed with Trader Joe's- Greek Style Vanilla Yogurt, fills one level of the Bento.
Oroweat- 100% Whole Wheat bread has been stuffed with Kraft- mayonnaise, Trader Joe's- Hot & Sweet Mustard, Taylor Farm's- Organic 50/50 Blend, tomato and Gallo Salame.
Today is National Egg Day! I made up a fun Bento school Lunch to Celebrate.

It's National Rocky Road Day, Will you Celebrate with Ice Cream, Artisan S'mores, Truffles, or?
How would you Celebrate National Go Barefoot Day? I bet you can guess we Celebrated with a Celebration Lunch.
When I think about what I would like to eat while Barefoot, I think about fruit.
I decided to start the girls with Raspberry Overnight Oatmeal:
1/2 C of Rolled Oats
1/2 C of Chobani Vanilla Yogurt
3/4 C of Milk
1 T of Chia Seeds and 1 T of Blackberry flavored Honey
I mixed all of the ingredients together and jarred it up for breakfast.
A lunch you can really enjoy Barefoot!
With summer break just around the corner, everyone in my house is thinking about summer break. National Go Barefoot day says "Fun in the Sun" to me.
The Bento's have been packed full of cucumber and carrot "sun's", Apple wedges, and Trader Joe's Yogurt Stars mixed with Boom Chicka Bites.
Cobblestone- Knead for Seed bread has been packed with Creamy Cream Cheese, Trader Joe's- Organic Blueberry Preserves and Adam's- Creamy Peanut Butter.
Rounding out with Icee Popping Candy and Drazil-Yummy Berry and Adam & Eve Strawberry Lemonade.
I think these lunch boxes just scream "it's time to slip off your shoes and enjoy some fun in the sun!" I hope you agree.
