1 1/2 cups lemon juice
1/3 cup lime juice
1 cup sugar

Hagar Viking Kubb

"Kubb hails from the Baltic Island of Gotland off the southern coast of Sweden where it has been played for over 1000 years. Kubb means 'block of wood' in Swedish, and it is thought that the Vikings originally played it with blocks of firewood."
I love this game! My brother-in-law brought it back from Sweden and it was a hit last summer! If you are looking for a fun new yard game look no farther.

Leather flip flops are so great, you can wear them with just about anything. I think I am going to have to invest in some this summer.

Poppies are currently one of my favorite flowers. The artist describes this as a "print of an original photograph digitally mixed with painting." Whatever it is, I love it. It is only $25 and it comes framed!
This purse is called "Kiley goes to the City." Being a city girl at heart, I would love a trip to the city with this purse on my arm!
