Flavors to Follow: Fruit

The weather has been super warm lately and what better thing is there to do than have a refreshing bowl of blueberries, munch on an apple, dip strawberries in whipped cream or have some lemonade, yummy!  On our past Costco trip, my husband and I bought a TON of fruit with the vow to eat fruit with every meal so that it wouldn’t go bad (I just hate when you buy food but don’t eat it in time before it goes rotten)!  So because I’ve got fruit in my mouth it’s also been on my mind… and now… on my blog!

eat: blueberry shortcakes made by savory sweet life
party: dessert table for sweet baby made by amy atlas
stitch: happy apple cross-stitch pattern sold by andwabisabi

Did that make you hungry??  Well good!  Go get yourself a healthy dose of fruit right now then, it’s good for ya!  Hope everyone has a great Father’s Day weekend!  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to spend this one with either of my Dad’s but at least I did get to see both of them in May.  Come back next week for another giveaway that you won’t want to miss! 🙂

    Favorite snack: fruit! And if it’s too cold to buy fresh fruit, the best treat in the world is a bowl full of frozen berries covered in milk. Mmmmmm!

    Sandy, this was such a cute post. 🙂 Fruit! nom.nom.nom. I love fruit, but it’s so darn expensive here in Hawaii (with the exception of Costco and farmers markets). My favorite fruits are bananas, blueberries, and lemons. YUM. I also don’t like it when I can eat all the food I bought because it’s already rotten. 🙁 It’s just me and my hubby, so we try not to buy too much at Costco because a lot of it goes to waste.

    I hope you have a fab weekend. I’m so happy it’s Friday today. This week was exhausting for some reason. I’m at work and am not motivated at all to get anything done… so I decided to visit some of my favorite blogs… and of course yours is one that’s on top of that list. 🙂 Hugs!

    xx Love & Aloha

    Happy Weekend!!! xo

    funny — I just put up yet another post on fruit today too! I guess the onset of summer makes you want it. Costco is a dangerous place, my husband always comes home with a ridiculous amount and I end up scrambling around trying to find uses for it all before it goes bad.

    I’m still afraid to buy fruit at costco — unless my roommate and I share it, or I manage to convince my brother to take some, I’m never able to make it through all of it before it starts to go bad. Maybe I just need to find more things to bake. And all of your inspiration works wonderfully to put me in that mood. Have a stellar weekend, Sandy!

    I think I really need fruit prints on a dress! You just gave me a reminder I’ve been wanting to scout for!
