Pinterest Review: The Best Punch Ever

I found this punch on Pinterest. It comes from No Biggie. You can find the original post here or on my Pinterest page under Spirits (not the spooky kind).

I have now made this punch twice. I give it two thumbs up on the ease of making it and on the taste!
The ingredients are easy: A frozen can of Barcardi Pina Colada Mix, a frozen can of Pineapple Orange Juice, four 2 liters of Diet Sprite, a bag of pebble ice, and a bag of frozen raspberries.

The cool thing is the layers of the punch. On the bottom it is dark yellow. Then it raises to white. And on top is this layer of berries that as you serve the punch, they break down and turns the entire punch bright pink.

The other super cool thing about this punch is, it only has 2 Weight Watcher Points + points per 8 ounce serving.

The only thumbs down I give this recipe is the sheer amount it makes. I can never get all the ingredients into the punch bowl. {I even went out and purchased this big jar from Target that No Biggie recommends. It was still too small!}  I think to make this you would need at least a 3 gallon jug, but then who has a 3 gallon jug that you can see through. So if you make it in a insulated cooler you just won't get to see the cool layers or the color change.

I made this punch after The Short Chic's dance recital. Everyone loved it. In fact, our Nana loved it so much she asked me to make for Papa's Surprise 70th Birthday Party.  The guest loved the punch, which made me happy!

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
