Blueberry & Lemon Froyo Popsicles

Fourth of July is just around the corner and we are getting excited to celebrate with friends and family!  We would love to hear your plans for the holiday.  This time of year is always so exciting.  It truly feels like the official summer kickoff.

We thought it was the perfect time to share a delicious (and simple) summer treat with you all!  We jumped on the frozen yogurt popsicle train and are so happy that we decided to do so.  These blueberry and lemon pops are so refreshing and were a breeze to make…our favorite kind of recipe.  We tried a couple of different popular recipes that we found but, ultimately, made the recipe our own after some experimenting.


2 cups fresh blueberries

1 tablespoon grated lemon zest (you can cut this in half if you don’t love lemon)

1 cup agave syrup

2 cups vanilla yogurt



1. Add 1 cup of blueberries, lemon zest and 1/2 cup agave syrup to a saucepan.  Simmer for just a few minutes until blueberries are coated with syrup and a little softened.  (It is important to keep heat as low as possible so blueberries do not start to peel.)

2. Set aside until cool.

3. Once cooled, in a mixing bowl, combine the blueberry and lemon mixture to yogurt and gently mix.

4. In a separate bowl, crush remaining blueberries.  In a small saucepan, simmer remaining blueberries and remaining agave syrup for approximately five minutes or until the blueberries turn into a syrup.  Strain the mixture so that you have the syrup in a separate bowl and discard the solids.

5. Add syrup to yogurt mixture and lightly swirl to give mixture a marble look.

6. Pour mixture into popsicle molds.

7. Freeze for 4-6 hours.

8. Eat up and enjoy!

Our Take

These popsicles made us want to try experiencing with all types of fruits.  Hopefully, we will find a coupe more great popsicle recipes and share them throughout them summer!

As I mentioned perviously, you can tweak the amount of lemon depending on how much you want to taste the citrus flavor.  You can easily do the same with the agave sugar if you want a more tart taste instead of a sweet one.  Also, when initially heating the first batch of blueberries, if you heat too long and they start to peel, you can use that batch for your syrup and start over with the rest of the berries for your whole ones.

This treat is such a hit with kids and a great healthy dessert option!

As always, we would love to hear your feedback once you try this recipe!

The Prettiest Beach Towels

It’s Friday, friends!  Do any of you have fun plans for this holiday weekend?  Admittedly, it feels a little odd using that term when the fourth doesn’t actually fall on the weekend but I am assuming that many of you have off through Tuesday so it’s like a super long weekend, right?

We are going to head to the beach for a few days.  Not sure our exact timeline just yet but one thing is certain…I need to start packing.  We leave several of our convenience items (toiletries, hats, bathing suits, etc.) down there at the house but not clothes so I need to get a move on packing for Ryan and myself.

Because of the holiday quickly approaching, it seemed like the perfect time to share some gorgeous options for beach towels.  Gone are the days when beach towels were purely functional.  They are now often made to make a statement while laying on the beach or lounging by the pool.  Here are some of the prettiest beach towels out there…

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!


Perfect Summer Dress

It’s Wednesday…yay!  I’m off to Chicago tomorrow to spend the weekend with a dear friend, so I’m in vacation mode already.  This trip could not have come at a better time as I have been a little stressed the last few days.  Finding a new house in Charlotte has been challenging so far – I mean, we have only looked once but the it’s so hard to find homes in Charlotte while living in Raleigh.  With the market moving as fast as it is, I need to be there so I can go see the houses we like in person before they are sold.  Plus, our house went on the market yesterday and within 3 hours of going “live”, we had a request for a showing.  So, now the coordination of that will be interesting as we will need to get our dog taken care of during the times of showings…whew, it’s a lot.  But don’t get me wrong, these are all great problems to have, so I’m not complaining.

Anyways, as I was packing for my trip last night, this dress made the cut.  I bought this dress before Memorial Day and it hung in my closet for a few weeks before I actually wore it out.  I was a little worried that it wasn’t going to be flattering on me, but I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on.  The empire waist really helps with the silhouette.

Although the dress is rather simple, the small details like the frayed hem and the side pockets really make the dress.  And while I styled this as an outfit to wear out during the day, I would also use this as a bathing suit coverup.  The material is so soft and really keeps you cool during the hot summer days.

Obviously, I love the color blue but it also comes in orange/brown color.  I will warn you that I typically wear a small or medium but got an extra small, so it does run a little big.

I’ve linked my exact items below along with some similar items.

Hope you have a fabulous day!
