Gummy Bear Popsicles | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #14

Gummy bear popsicles. I’l just give you a moment to let that sink in. 

GUMMY BEAR POPSICLES!!!!!!! Today’s post from the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop is, without a doubt, one of the very coolest so far (sorry, everyone – you just can’t compete with candy-packed popsicles). And not just cool because it’s a frozen treat recipe either! These homemade popsicles have GUMMY BEARS in them. I’m done. Seriously. Janine from Confessions of a Mommyaholic killed it. 

I really have nothing else of value to add to this, other than you need to get your little tushy over to Janine’s blog and find out how to make your own gummy bear popsicles. Personally, I’ll be picking up a package of sour patch kids and putting my own super-sour twist on them. Right now. I’m at the store.

Watermelon Mojitos! | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #13

It’s Monday, which means it’s time for another Spectacular Summer Blog Hop post, this time from Sue of A Purdy Little House. She has the most incredible-sounding recipe for Watermelon Mojitos, including a kid-friendly, non-alcoholic version. Now that the sun seems to be making it’s return (we’ve reached a recording-breaking number of rainy days this summer), I’m ready for a drink like this that I can sip beside our little pool. 

Look at those fresh limes and that dark green mint! And all that yummy watermelon… I’m off to the grocery store to pick up the supplies as soon as I can!

Free Summer Beach Printables! | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #12

Happy Thursday! For today’s Spectacular Summer Blog Hop, Victoria from Dazzle While Frazzled has some awesome, FREE summery printables for you. They are all about the beach, and – get this! – they are TRILINGUAL! Yessssssss! In our house, we speak English, French, and Spanish, so finding that she’d made these lovely little gems in all three of our languages was really exciting. Kudos to Victoria for going the extra mile for her readers. 

Here’s one of them, but make sure to head over to her blog to download them properly in high-resolution! These would be really lovely as some seasonal art, or in a guest room. You could print a smaller version, laminate them, and use them as beach bag tags.
