I’m hopping on the popsicle craze today. I’ve never been much of a popsicle fanatic, yeah I like them but unless they’re super good I can take it or leave it. Speaking of super good take a look at these Thai Iced Tea Popsicles from Thyme & Tamarind! Don’t they look amazingggg! I’ll for sure be trying those out soon. These Honeydew Mint
popsicles Winesicles are so refreshing on a hot summer day, especially here in Tennessee where it’s been blazing hot the past few days. I’m praying for fall to hurry up and get here. I’m dreaming of cool days and pumpkin everything. You think I’m kidding but I’m so not. I may have to change the blog name to Wicked Pumpkin before winter rolls around.
Now that I have popsicle molds I’m going to take advantage of the hot weather though and use it as an excuse to make tons and tons of popsicles. Get ready.

There’s only one thing I’ve missed since giving up fast food close to 7 months ago and that’s a Chick-fil-A sandwich. I didn’t eat fast food a lot since we try to maintain an organic diet but Chick-fil-A was always... Continue reading →
One thing that I’ve loved most about owning a house is that we had the chance to plant a garden. While we’re no way even remotely experienced at gardening it’s nice to see things that we planted grow. And I... Continue reading →
