There is nothing I like better than classic rock in the summer. Especially when I'm sipping drinks out by the pool. But very quickly, your drink warms up, and you are feeling less refreshed and more like one of those greenish hot dogs you see at the movie theater...But the other day I spotted these ice straws on Rare Bird Finds. Genius. You put the straw form in to the tray and fill with water (or other beverage of choice). Freeze and your done. Makes between 4-6 straws at a time (info on this tray is somewhat questionable) and is available at Amazon. Don't want to buy this tray, Apartment Therapy has a tutorial on how to make ice straws using a different, more likely cheaper, ice stick tray from Ikea.

*This is likely to be my last post of the week and quite possibly next week. Our scheduled moving days are Sunday and Monday. I'm expecting to be busy unpacking, fighting with my husband over proper placement of wall hangings and figuring out what to do about our couch which is too large for the living room...
