    I’m sitting here on my bedroom floor right now (so the light from my computer won’t disturb my sleeping husband) stuffing my face with some food from Panda. It is salty and I am thirsty….soooo, this lemonade is calling to me. Serious calling. Can you here it? Anyway, it looks so delicious. And guess what–I just happen to have too many lemons in my fridge and I’m THINKING that in a few hours (got to go bed eventually) I am going to be making a batch of this lemonade. Lucky, lucky me.

      Internet surfing on the sly, huh? Hey, whatever works! LOL! I love that you have lemons in your fridge already. Isn’t that a happy coincidence? I love when the planets align like that!! I also love that you’ll be having lemonade at, like, 3 in the morning. You’re a fellow night owl too?! Don’t you love the quiet down-time that nighttime provides?
