I love limes.

the color

the scent

the flavor

Key lime pie, cherry limeade, lime popsicles....

tortilla chips with a hint of lime

Vibrant and fresh.

I wouldn't be me if I didn't disclose that my most favorite way to enjoy limes is in my Diet Coke.

I like the actual Diet Coke with lime product that Coca-Cola produces, but I really prefer to add fresh lime to my regular Diet Coke. Because I'm all about being natural.

Speaking of natural, I bought some organic Oreo type cookies.

Meh. They weren't very good. Regular Oreos are much better.
I think Oreos are one of the foods in the world that actually benefits from a suspect ingredient list.
Sometimes you shouldn't mess with processed food perfection.

I realize this is a lame post, but I'm hiding upstairs and don't have much else to do. Caroline and two friends (plus one uncooperative little brother) are opening up various "shops" in my living room. Rachel is opening a "Picturama" shop where she will sell her drawings; Elizabeth is creating a beauty shop, with a name that currently escapes me and Caroline, a girl after my own heart, is opening "Sweet Caroline's" bake shop.

So far, they have nothing to sell, but my living room is in shambles and they've gone through half a roll of scotch tape.

So, as you can see, it really is better for me to hide upstairs.

I am OBSESSED with everything about limes, too!! I keep dreaming of making a cherry limeade type smoothie. I must make it soon!

I love anything lime flavored, except I really can't seem to get on the lime tortilla chip bandwagon. Charlie loves them, but they freak me out a little bit!

Lindsey-- If you figure out the cherry limeade smoothie, please post it. That sounds incredibly tasty.

Sissy--it took me a bit to get used to the lime tortilla chips, too. They make my lips feel funny. But, I found some chili lime tortilla chips that I fell in love with. LOVE. Like eat the whole bag in two days kind of love.
