So what do you think?... I changed things up a bit on here. I blame the Diet Dr. Pepper I drank at 4pm on Friday night...I should know better, but any way.
It was another great weekend, wow I am on a roll. The beginning of this summer I promised myself that this year I was going to use our pool more and so far so good!
Saturday we had the "un-birthday" party for DQ lol. A few close friends came over for pizza and swimming it was super laid back and though we did do pizza, I made sure to have lots of veggies, fruit and salad. I will admit to a slice and a bit of ice cream cake but I was balanced and still enjoyed with going over bored.
The other great thing about summer time swimming is since you are outside you can have tons of messy drippy watermelon then just jump in the pool (cause I'm a cool mom and don't pool days count as baths in the summer??.) Honestly I absolutely love watermelon it's the perfect healthy summer treat, but I used to never buy it because I HATED cutting it
and I'm too cheap to buy the pre-cut. Talk about sticky, juicy mess twss I know sorry couldn't help it. That is until I learned this little trick.
Thank you Pinterest!
How To Cut a Watermelon with Less Mess
1. Get a BIG ass knife (I like to use my serrated bread knife)
2. Hack off the top and bottom of the watermelon.
3. Carefully cut the rind off, so you kinda have a naked looking watermelon.
notice there is hardly any juice...see it works.
4.Now just slice and dice how you like (you can pretend your Dexter)
now there will be some juice at this point but I found if you do it on a cookie sheet it pretty much stays contained (I was just to lazy to do it yesterday so by the sink worked just as well)
The great thing I still have a ton of watermelon left over for this weeks snacks!
