Don’t worry…I’m fully aware that it’s currently September and I’m over here posting snow cones. But, to plead my case, it was 91 degrees yesterday, so I don’t feel too bad about making these yummy treats instead of sipping on Pumpkin Spice Lattes at this point of the season. Trust me. I’ll have pleeeeenty of PSL time in my future, considering we won’t see warmer temps in Utah until May next year. So I’m just going to be over here enjoying the sun a little bit longer. If you’re like me and still embracing the warmth, these strawberry snow cone printables are the perfect way to turn a boring old snow cone into the cutest little frozen treat!
I’m flying out to sunny LA today to celebrate my little sister’s birthday. She’s turning the big 3-0 and we’re celebrating with surf, sand, sips, and some fun adventures along the way (like a wine safari…who knew?!) Bring on the palm trees! Because I’m feeling a little tropical lately, I wanted to share an easy way to bring a little tropical flair to your next event. These DIY fruit vases make the prettiest little table centerpiece when lined up together, or a fun statement when displayed apart. However you choose to display them, they’re so much fun!
I’m not ready to come to terms with tomorrow being August. I don’t know where the Summer went this year, but I’m choosing to hold onto it for as long as possible. Sure, all the stores are prepping for back to school and even Halloween already, but I’m choosing to cherish these warm summer nights, and I plan to do it on my deck with a glass of this in my hands! This lavender lemonade recipe is the perfect way to enjoy the last month of Summer, before welcoming in the chill of fall and all things pumpkin! The recipe is simple to make and I love the subtle touch of lavender that lingers too! Cheers to homemade lemonade!
A little over a year ago, I did the un-thinkable. I gave up soda. I didn’t think I could do it, but alas, here I am…living on coffee, un-sweetened iced tea, and water. LOTS of water. And, guys, I’m soooo not a water person. As much as I try to enjoy it, I just don’t. I force myself to drink it because it’s good for me, but I’d really prefer a Dr. Pepper (just being honest!).
If you’re anything like me, and bored with your normal water routine, today’s post was made for you! I’m sharing a few simple fruit pairings that are going to punch up the flavor in your regular old glass of H2O, and they are a breeze to make! Infused fruit water couldn’t be easier and it’s sooooo delish! And that’s coming from a non-water fan too, so that’s gotta mean something 😉
This tropical rainbow smoothie bowl recipe isn’t just easy, it’s delicious, and how could you not love all of that pretty color! A perfect rainbow breakfast for St. Patrick’s Day!
If you guys follow along on social media, you may have noticed that last week was my birthday. I decided to take the whole week off from the blog and new posts (!!!), so that I could ring in the big 3-3 surrounded by friends and family. It was exactly what I needed to really enjoy all of the little moments and people that mean so much.
But, I’m back and just in time to help you guys get prepped and ready to celebrate another (not quite as important 😉 ) holiday…St. Patrick’s Day! It’s coming up next week and I wanted to share a simple and colorful breakfast idea that’s healthy too! This tropical rainbow smoothie bowl recipe isn’t just easy, it’s delish, and how could you not love all of that color! A rainbow breakfast to help the family start off their search for that missing pot of gold!
Chocolate dipped mini fruit bouquets are the perfect sweet treat to gift your loved ones for Valentine’s Day this year!
Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is in a week? I can’t. I’m still trying to figure out where January went! As I get older, it seems that my days are more busy and time seems to pass a whole lot faster. It’s hard to remember to take in all of life’s little moments and appreciate them. But there is one thing that I’ll be appreciating this upcoming weekend…70 degree weather! I’m heading down to Las Vegas for an annual weekend trip with close friends and family and couldn’t be more thrilled to escape the snow and cold.
Getting out of town for the holidays is always more fun for me. I feel like it takes a lot of pressure off to plan really extravagant things and to just enjoy the people you’re with. Plus, who doesn’t like a change of scenery every once in a while?!
If you’re staying home and stressing over what to make for the loved ones in your life, I’m sharing a cute little project, that’s fun for the kids to make too!
These mini fruit bouquets are easy to make, super cute, and a lot less expensive than online options too. Plus, they’re healthy. Ok, maybe not exactly “healthy” but healthier. (Kinda hard to justify something dipped in milk chocolate, but, hey…fruit counts for something, right?)
I wait all year long for the peaches to start hitting the local stores, here in Utah, and the time is here!
I stopped by the farmers market over the weekend (you’ll see more of that trip on Wednesday!) and picked up some yummy peaches from a local farm. I could go on and on about local produce or our market here in SLC, but I’ll save that for later.
Instead, let’s talk about the yummy things you can create with fresh peaches….like peaches and cream ice cream!
Cherries, watermelon, pineapple, strawberries…the list goes on and on!
I could gorge myself on the stuff.
So today, I am sharing a way to keep the sticky mess at bay and make easy summer fruit more fun!
