dark chocolate ice cream = relaxation

With a fabulous Father’s Day weekend behind me and a busy, and maybe slightly hectic, week in front of me (new collection shoot tomorrow and my son’s fifth birthday party this weekend), I thought I would start the week off with a shot of my very favorite cold dessert. There is nothing like a heaping serving of this… dark chocolate ice cream… to put a huge “to do” list into perspective.

Hop over to Pick Yin for all the details and a delightful story on how these beautiful pics came to be!

Happy Monday everyone and as always, I hope you’re inspired!

I’ve shared Brooke of the Cheeky Kitchen’s work before. Remember the end of summer picnic she and Jaimee at Sophistimom hosted. So lovely! She just inspires me!

And this latest kid friendly treat does not disappoint. You simply must visit her blog to see yummy after yummy recipe and visit her on Babble’s The Family Kitchen for the how to’s of this fun treat.

As always, I hope you’re inspired!

yum! yum! milkshakes


This has been a whirlwind wonderful week and to celebrate, we are having milkshakes during tonight’s family movie night. Oh yeah! So in preparation, I went looking around for kid-friendly and adult-friendly options. {wink}

This first group is very kid-friendly:


These two are even more kid-friendly! Shoot, they’re everyone-friendly! Just look at them!


And last, but not least, a few spiked milkshakes for the adults!

Happy weekend everyone!
