summer treats

hi! hope your week is going well! thank you all so, so much for all of the gender love
we are so excited to welcome a baby boy this winter! yay! 

currently listening to norah jones with a cup of hazelnut coffee and the today show
i love summer. 

i have been pinning lots of refreshing and yummy summer treats lately so i thought i would share my favorites with you... enjoy!
root beer floats were def. a favorite of mine as a little girl... we would make them often! my dad traveled a lot so my mom, sister, and i would often treat ourselves to homemade floats/shakes and movie nights - using our popples sleeping bags!
{my family had the new beer that taste like root beer last weekend and although i couldn't try it... they loved it! i will be trying after baby boy arrives- maybe as a root beer float!}
{i love to use whip cream and then put them in the refrigerator for a bit to chill}

...
on another note, i am simply loving persian rugs lately!
how beautiful is this one?!

what's your favorite summer treat! 

stop in tomorrow for my bump update- week fourteen :)

  5. Those blueberry coconut cashew bars sound amazing! I'm a huge cookie ice cream sandwich fan...I definitely need to follow your advice of doing it with whipped cream, because that sounds easier (and I LOVE whipped cream!).
