Pineapple Orange Julius

Pineapple Orange Julius

This drink brings me back to Junior High. Strolling the mall, sporting my pink glitter jelly sandals, clear mini backpack, and baby doll t-shirts. My favorite thing to do was stop in the food court and buy an Orange Julius with my babysitting money. It was glorious, down to the very last frothy slurp.

I hope you don’t mind another strawberry recipe. I just can’t help it. Those berries are so red, and juicy, and cheap. They call to me.

It’s getting warm here in Arizona. So we did the logical thing and put our above ground pool up. I love swimming, and I love going swimming with my kids. But can you imagine me at a community pool trying to manage all 4 children at once? Yeah, not gonna happen. Having a pool in our backyard is easier for me.
