Gone crafting... We'll be back soon!

Another Monday! How was your weekend?
Did you celebrate with your Mom yesterday for Mother's Day?
Julia and I planned a special day for our Mom.  It consisted of girly drinks and pool time!  Our Mom wanted a relaxing day, a day we could all catch up and enjoy the outdoors.  The sun finally showed up in Atlanta this weekend, just in time for a pool day!
To start, we had a light & refreshing cocktail (recipe at Iowa Girl Eats).  It's called a Skinny Sunrise, it contains: orange juice, pineapple juice, homemade strawberry simple syrup, vodka and topped with club soda.  We even made our Mom a fun cup to use at the pool - we cut out her initial on the Silhouette using an adhesive vinyl.

For lunch we had chicken salad sandwiches and fresh fruit.  All 3 of us love chicken salad, we could eat it almost everyday.  Julia made this batch using chicken, mayo, celery, onion, and pecans.  It was so good!  
(You can check out my chicken salad recipe here.)

We enjoyed the pool for a few hours, then ventured back in for some cold gelato!  Honeysuckle Gelato is a local Atlanta company.  We had key lime pie and sea-salted caramel.  Both were so delicious!

It was a fun day spent with our Mom!
Julia and I will be taking a short blogging break.  We both work full-time and have active social lives.  Lately it has been tough to balance life and the blog!  We want to always provide you with fun & interesting blog posts and lately we haven't been able to do that.  So we'll be taking a break, probably for a just a month.  This will give us time to get our creative juices flowing.  We'll still be around in the social networking community, so please be sure to follow us on:
