Life has been a bit laid back as of lately and we’ve taken it easy this summer.  Usually I’m out and about but I’ve spent most days at home with the kiddos either hiding from the rain or blistering sun.  Maybe it’s the fact that now I have to haul not one but two children with me so I’m less inclined to actually leave the house or maybe it’s the act of getting all 3 of us ready is overwhelming; whatever the reason, this  summer has been less than exciting.   

I’ve been so laid back lately that I’ve been looking for ways to make everything easier and I accidentally stumbled on Kroger’s ClickList where you order your groceries online and simply drive up to the store and they bring it out and put it in your car.  Now this service is nothing new and most supermarkets now have some similar service, but let me tell you, I am loving it!  The thought of grocery shopping from the comfort of my living room is the best thing in the world, no more do I have to pile groceries around 2 kids in the cart.   This certainly has made life easier.  When I shared it on my Instastories a few weeks back, some of you were asking about the service and if it’s available at all stores but sadly it is not.  Only a select number of Kroger stores have this option but here are some other options:

Kroger ClickList:  Order groceries online and head to the store and have it brought to your car.  $4.95 service fee per order.

Walmart Grocery Pickup:  Order groceries online and pick up the same day, they even load it into your car.  This is also available at select locations.  This service is free with a purchase minimum of $30.

Publix Grocery Delivery:  Order groceries online via Instacart and have them delivered to your home on the same day.  This has a small delivery fee starting at $3.99 for two hour delivery on orders over $35.

Shipt:  Order from your favorite local store and have a personal shopper pick up your items and deliver it to your door.  Subscription is required at $99 a year or $14 per month.

AmazonFresh:  Shop for groceries including fresh produce online and have it delivered as soon as the same day.   This is exclusive for Amazon prime members which has a fee of $99 per year and the AmazonFresh is an additional $14.99 a month.

Now onto the recipe at hand.  I’ve been making a lot of different versions of lemonade lately and decided to make a green tea version after having it a Starbucks.  It’s light, refreshing and the perfect summer drink and it couldn’t be easier!



  • 2 green tea bags
  • 4 cups boiled water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Juice of 4 lemons
  • 2 cups cold water


  • Steep green tea bags in 4 cups of boiled water for 15 minutes.  Remove tea bags then add sugar and stir until dissolved.
