This post is brought to you by Blue Bunny. I love summer! Well, ok, minus the heat that is! 😉 But, summer at least always has such a more fun, relaxed, and free vibe to it than other parts of the year. Freedom from school and freedom from day-to-day routine in the form of vacations; the freedom to stay up a little later watching movies or playing games; freedom to play outside in sprinklers and hoses. SO much fun! One of my favorite summer time free-time activities is to get a pedicure. I love cute toes year round, but in the summer, they’re a must. Living in the sunny desert of Arizona, flip flops are an everyday, everywhere occurrence. So, getting a pedicure not only makes my toes cute at the pool or the beach, but it gives me a little bit of freedom from mom duties–a chance for just some quiet “me” time. With all of our Disney travels at the start of the summer, I loved rockin’ the Minnie Mouse pedicure. Summer comes with a lot of sweet stuff too! Many of our favorite fruits are in season over the summer like watermelon, cherries, peaches, and grapes. Sometimes we make popsicles and smoothies with the fruit (like these grape popsicles), but the fruit all by itself is especially great in the summer. Nothing like eating cherries in the pool on the 4th of July! 😉 And, of course, summer is the perfect time to indulge in some ice cream! Blue Bunny has some delicious “Sweet Freedom” ice cream flavors and treats. We’re especially loving the bars and cones! At just over 100 calories, they’re a sweet treat that I can easily work into my summer fun plans without completely undoing some of my health & weight loss goals! I love that!
