Default This helps make my summer so much better.

I also know i've posted about this before, i think two summers ago. I just thought that you would like to know that I love it just as much now as I did before.

(and yes.. i've been a posting fool lately, not sure what my deal is. The kids are in bed and my hubby is working an overtime night shift. lol)

So Kristin, do you buy premade syrups, make your own, or what?

Ooooh I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED that. My sister has this massive margarita maker thingy that is just awesome, but I can't justify the $300 price tag (or whatever it is). This is WAY more up my alley.

Ooh, we used to have an ice shaver, 2 different ones actually, and we loved the slushies, but hardly ever made them because the machines were such a pain to use. If this one works well I may have to get one. The boys would love it! (and I would, too )

nope! i just make either crystal light (for me) or a bit of koolaid for the kids. I figure this way it helps keep the sugar down from using syrup

I don't find this a pain at all. You just stick the ice in the top and turn it on We buy bags of ice so that we don't have to worry about keep refilling ice trays.

Ok so do you freeze your drink in ice cube trays or do you shave ice and pour the drink over it? :-)
