Happy FRIDAY!! I’m currently away crossing some items off my summer to-do’s and chasing lower temps along the coast. But, I didn’t want to leave you hanging on a Friday. I know you are all dying to hear what’s on my mind today, right? Haha. Well just incase you are, here’s what I’ve got…..
ONE – Red + White + Blue // Our Bike Parade outfits have arrived. Is it possible that we are even more excited now:) Yes, it is! The bike decorations are purchased. The bud light is in abundance. Donut tower is set and ready to be loaded up with sugary snacks. We’ve got fishie crackers by the gallon. And balloons by the dozen. The only thing left was our outfits. And I almost dropped the ball.
Low and behold, they arrived!!! Just in the nick of time….and we are good to go!!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the adorable Ily Couture graphic tee’s all over instagram. I just had to get one.

Bay’s Dress //
I almost purchased this online for the original price. Which I NEVER do. When you’re on a red + white + blue mission, sometimes you do out of character shit. Luckily I had a couple of extra minutes to run into the Davis GAP and there it was. Guess how much? $12! 40% off + 10% cardholder discount. I would have kicked myself for paying full price. Moral of the story, NEVER pay full price at GAP! Ever!
TWO – Breakfast Popsicles // Popsicles for breakfast, you heard me right. Come on Mom, it’s summer!! Especially with these hot temps…why not? It’s basically a yogurt fruit bowl, but in the form of a fun popsicle. You can make a batch for the week and keep them in the freezer. You know what that means? Breakfast is served and you don’t have to do shit! Grab and go..Bam! A healthy breakfast is served 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Cheapy popsicle molds (I got mine for 99 cents at Walmart)
- Popsicle sticks (I used ice cream spoons)
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 cup granola
- 1 cup berries chopped (I used strawberries + blueberries from the Seka Hills pickup)
Here’s what you do:
Mix together milk + yogurt + 1 tablespoon honey.
Divide mixture between popsicle molds. Fill 3/4 way full.
Drop a few berries into each mold.
Stick remaining tablespoon of honey in the microwave for 10 seconds. Stir in granola.
Top each mold with granola + honey mixture.
Place wooden sticks into each mold and pop in the freezer for 4 hours.
When ready to serve, run the popsicle mold under warm water till the popsicle sticks become wiggley.
You’re kiddos will love you…promise 🙂
THREE – New emoji // Did you get the memo? 69 new emoji are being released sometime this summer. You’re going to want to do this update. From the breastfeeding mom to the vampires + zombies to the grinning face with one large eye (this will be in my most used) and the exploding head. Yoga pose, bearded man and you cant forget the hedgehog! Oh and lot’s of food too!! Stay tuned!
FOUR – Off the shoulder shirt trick // Anyone else love the off the shoulder trend, but it doesn’t love you back? Ha!! I have about 5 currently in my closet and I can say that not one of them actually stays off my damn shoulder. Constantly creepin up. I’m pulling on it every two seconds. If it’s already not annoying enough that you have to wear a damn strapless bra. I found a trick. Tried it out. And guess what? It fucking works!! Do you follow Living in Yellow? She did a little video on it. So I need to give the homegirl some cred.
