Batter Up for S'more

Last weekend, Mike and I headed out to the batting cages for a fun date night.  I'm not sure how many of you know but I am not great with my hand eye coordination - I only really ever played soccer successfully, which (shocker) does not include hand-eye coordination.  Guess what baseball requires? Hand-eye coordination.  Yet I willingly went to the batting cages.  It was even my idea.  What is wrong with me? 

Here's some proof just so you believe me:

I even hit the ball...a couple of times at least.  Here's Mike's proof:

What a stud! Obviously he's much better at this whole hand-eye coordination than I am...

Part of the surprise/fun/active date was I made a picnic - of snacks that is! So after the driving range, (yes! I even embarrassed myself there as well) we headed to a park to enjoy our snacks.

S'mores popcorn and strawberry lemonade. Suddenly the "s'mores" part of this title makes much more sense doesn't it?  It was delicious.  Even as I was secretly making it, I was munching on it.  Truly the best snack for those of you who like the sweet salty combo.  

As for these cute little mason jars?  I'll let you in on a little secret.  SUPER easy to make.  I just traced the metal circle onto some fun scrapbook paper and then used a hole punch. Done. How easy was that?  I got this brilliant idea from my friend Kitty.  She's basically a craft genius and fellow law student.  Check out her blog here for great ideas!

That's really about it for now.  I'll leave you with S'mores popcorn recipe.  Have a great one!

S'more's Popcorn:
Find the original post here

1/2 box of Golden Graham cereal
1/2 bag of miniature marshmallows
2 bags of your favorite popcorn
a whole bag of chocolate chips - melted

Pop your popcorn.
Blend your cereal, popcorn & marshmallows in a VERY large bowl.
Melt your chocolate in a microwaveable bowl.
Spread your dry mixture on a large baking sheet.
Drizzle your melted chocolate over the dry.
Wait for your chocolate to get firm, and devour a bowl full - or 5 - or maybe the whole thing - I won't tell!
