A Quick Thank-You

This is Melissa's friend Andrea with an easy little thank you idea. Who doesn't love chocolate covered strawberries?? Just add a cute, "Thank you BERRY much!" tag and you've got a great thank you gift that's sure to be a hit with just about anyone.

5-minute homemade popsicles

Summer is winding down! I've just realized that there are still so many things I want to do before Fall comes. Making homemade Popsicles was one of them. Chocolate popsicles are such a childhood memory for me. I haven't had them in years, but I have to say that they are still as good as I remember. And so quick and easy!

Homemade Chocolate Popsicles

1 small box of chocolate pudding- instant (if you want a from scratch recipe, try this one)
2 cups milk
popsicle molds or paper cups + popsicle sticks

Mix the milk and pudding together well with a whisk. Then before it sets up, pour into molds.
Leave a little room for it to expand when it freezes.

Put in your popsicle sticks and then freeze for at least 5 hours. 

Viola! Yummy homemade popsicles!

I have to admit. I'm a little jealous of all the people going back to school. This time of year brings back so many memories of back-2-school shopping, fashion shows, the smell of new socks (yes, I love that!), finding out which friends are in the same classes, getting school supplies ready, and creating schedules (although they only lasted for about a week.).

The closest thing to going back-2-school for me this year was starting a new job a few weeks ago. The night before I started I got those same butterflies as I would the night before school started. I kind of really like that feeling. Anyways, sorry for the lack of posts. But fall is coming and that means there will be lots of festive things to share.

I have this little decoration on my mantle just so I don't feel completely out of the loop. I can't wait until I have kids of my own to take school shopping and walk them up to their first day of class.

Happy Back-2-School everyone!!
