Blueberry Lemonade

Ahoy me hearties.

Did you all do anything fun this weekend?

I was doing some very glamorous stuff.

Like tons of laundry.

Getting rid of clothing that’s too small for my girls.

Food shopping at Target.

And helping my sister make favor boxes for her wedding.

I know. I am totally living the glamorous life.
