Sparking Mint Lemonade

I haven't posted here in a while.
I could say it's because I've been too busy, but that would only be part of the truth.
Actually, it's because I just don't have that much to say. I read the blog posts of others on the web and it seems that they have so much to contribute. Well, I don't feel like I do all that much. So, for now I am only posting when I do. And today is one of those days.
I made up the best lemonade recipe in the world! Seriously, this is addictive.

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
bunch of mint - like at least a cup
Boil the above together to until the sugar is dissolved and you have a wonderful mint simple syrup that you can use for all sorts of things. The mint flavor gets stronger as it sits too.
Now add 1 cup lemon juice and 1 2 liter bottle of sparkling water.
That's it! So simple and SO good!

Wouldn't this make an awesome Christmas gift?

So, I just entered a giveaway over at the Not So Perfect Housewife for a Sodastream!

This is definitely one to check out. We don't drink soda a whole lot around here, but this would be a perfect gift for at least two family members we have who drink soda A LOT. I love all the different flavors they have too (although they don't have my favorite - grapefruit). The cran-raspberry looks the most delicious to me.

I highly encourage you to check out the Not So Perfect Housewife and see her cute video of the Sodastream in action.

To remember...

Ken came home from work the other day and jumped in the shower. When he got out, he called, "Hey Babe, could you bring me a towel?" Will being the sweet helpful child he is, immediately ran into the room and shouted, "Hey Babe, could you bring Dad a towel?"

Today Will stepped on a Lego he left on the floor. He came running to me and said, "Mom, I hurt my foot! I need 10 bandaids!" Guess if one is good, ten is better :)
