When we talk flavor, I think ice cream! Am I alone?
There is nothing better in the summer than, ice cream. OK, there is the sun, the beach and pools, but I love me some ice cream and I have definitely passed this love onto my kids! This is not going to be good for my weight loss this summer. There is something about going to the beach that makes me want to stop for ice cream on the way home...this wouldn't be a problem if we didn't frequent the beach a few times a week! Anyway, can you tell I am thinking about ice cream??
On to the purpose of this post....#ETHANproject, Week 3: Enjoy the Flavor
Here are the details of the challenge..
Because I think about ice cream a lot in the summer and because I am trying to lose weight, I decided that I would buy some ice cream to keep in the freezer. Usually I don't keep ice cream in the freezer, because if I have it in there I will eat it. Well, let's be honest, in the summer I am eating it whether it is in the freezer or not, so I might as well keep it on hand to save us 1) some money and 2) some calories, because if I go to the local ice cream place, chances are good I am not just going to get a kiddie size dish of ice cream. Once I get there everything looks so good! So I went to the store and bought the stuff to make ice cream at home and the first night we had some ice cream sundaes!
The kids were super excited!! To go with the challenge, I bought my favorite kind to have the kids try something new. Friendly's Watermelon sherbet. Anyone else tried this? I was super psyched to see it at the store and immediately knew that was what I was bringing home! Then I went with vanilla as well, just in case the kids didn't like the sherbet! We had the choice of sugar cone of waffle dish, whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles and we all created our own sundaes!
So what are you going to do this week to ENJOY the FLAVOR? I want to hear all about it!

Since we talked about one of my favorite ice cream flavors today, I wanted to talk about one more favorite....
This is my chalk board in the entryway because TODAY is the last day of school!!
Olivia is getting out of school at Noon and we are hitting the beach to celebrate!

Have a great Friday and an excellent weekend!
