S’Mores Krispies Bars – fun summer treat that everyone will love!
Olympics in 10:
1. Watching women’s gymnastics stresses me out.
2. My girls make relay races in our living room.
3. I love Missy Franklin’s red white and blue mani.
4. You want to protest – have cash on hand.
5. Women without make up on tv are actually being cheered on.
6. I know for sure I hate running.
7. Summer tv has been saved by exercise that everyone wants to watch, even if it’s on 12 hrs a day.
8. After the Olympics are over, Bachelor Pad will be the only exciting thing on tv. How sad…
9. My Hubby works out more than usually.
10. I react emotionally and make chocolate treats.
Toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate – the ultimate summer afternoon treat. It should be obligatory to enjoy such a combo. Summer is just not complete without it.
