iCandy - 80th edition

Who's ready for the weekend? I sure am and this Atlanta heat wave is making me very, very thirsty! It sure feels like Summer already and nothing reminds me of Summer vacation, more than a good old fashioned lemonade stand. In fact, I credit my very own lemonade stand {as an 8 year old} where I got my official start in professional sales:)

I also vividly recall this is where I learned the meaning of the word "profit". My mother was always yelling out the front door...."Stacy, you're drinking up all your profits!!" Heck, I couldn't help it, Cleveland gets HOT in the SUMMER! Oh and did I mention we sold cups for ten cents each? Not really sure we ever made more than $1.00, but it sure was fun and there was definitely more sugar than lemons in our recipe.

This week's iCANDY makes my mouth water, yours too? It has all sorts of fun ways to make your own lemonade stand special. What better way to teach your kids the meaning of $1.00 this Summer? I'd to see your pictures so feel free to send them in to me at

Martha Stewart has some great tricks up her sleeve for the perfect Lemonade Stand. How about some good old fashioned Lemonade Recipes from She Knows? Feeling industrious? This Old House shows you step-by-step plans to build your own stand {tools required}.
