Summer Yums Series Part-1

Hi loves!
I hope everyone had a lovely Memorial Day weekend! We did a lot of eating, drinking, partying, swimming, and relaxing; and unfortunately I didn’t get many pictures. (Insert crying emoji face)
I’ve realized that when I’m with all 3 kids right now I don’t have my phone in my hands snapping pictures all day. I don’t really have any hands to do much of anything right now except hold a baby, burp a baby, change a baby, or put baby in the carrier to help the girls with anything and everything. (I think I get a request from them every 3 minutes.)

I’m kicking off a Summer – Yums series! Once a week this summer I will feature a DIY yummy summer treat to make! Most of them will be kid-friendly, but I will throw in some adult-only treats because momma is going to need some of those over the summer. 🙂

I love doing fun activities with the girls, and it’s an extra bonus when the activities end with something to eat! When making things at home I try to stick to the “healthier” side of things, incorporating fruit, veggies, and other nutritional dense foods. Key word: TRY!

Today is a two-fer!
We made these popsicles two different ways and they were both tasty and extremely refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer day!


Gummie Pops
– An assortment of gummie candy
– Flavored Coconut water (we used peach-mango)
– Popsicle molds


Fruit Pops
– An assortment of sliced fruit
– Ginger Ale or Sprite
– Popsicle molds

Popsicles are such a great thing to make yourself with kids, because the options seem almost endless and what kid doesn’t love them some popsicles?!

Happy Summer!

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescapes

While my house may scream “It’s Christmas” by mid-November, I always have a table or two dedicated to Thanksgiving. I want the table to be simple, welcoming, and just as pretty as the Thanksgiving foods on it. I don’t use the traditional Thanksgiving colors, as I like...

All the Details on our Kitchen Remodel

I want to start off and let you know I had to google what the difference between a ‘remodel’ and ‘renovation’ is for this post. A remodel is making changes to the structure, while a renovation is more like a restoration. Now that we’re all in the know on that, I’m...
