    I LOVE rainbow sprinkles! They remind me of two things: Our ice cream stand and bakeries.

    That dip looks really tasty… vegan? *perk*

      I know – love the perks when they work out that way and sprinkles can be so fun to take pics of :)

    Sprinkles remind me of childhood. We decided to take advantage of a sunny winters day in sydney and took Master 5 and Master 1 bush walking. We went 7.3km around the dam and Master 5 walked almost the entire way by himself, I’m so proud of him !

    My weekend is sprinkled with lots of tennis in the hot and humid sun, which means lots of water and coconut water for hydration!

    I WISH my weekend was sprinkled with sunshine… lots of nasty storms and cloudy skies around here!

    Cute post, so far my weekend is sprinkled with fun after a girls night out last night to see Magic Mike and a little clothes shopping. Hope you’re having a great weekend so far!

    My weekend is sprinkled with lots of shopping, and even better it’s shopping for food :) There’s also some baking and lots of watching Olympics included. I really enjoyed the sentiment of this post. Hope you have a great weekend!

    My weekend is sprinkled with a DAY OFF and enjoying the beautiful (but extremely hot) weather. I believe you used to live in AZ also, right? In that case, you can relate to my situation (I live in Scottsdale). Your photos are always fabulous! :)

    have you tried the all natural sprinkles and jimmies at whole foods?
    so good, and there is NO dye.
    girl you would hate our weather, all dark, cloudy and HUMID

    My weekend was sprinkled with music, good drinks and kisses :-)

    My weekend is sprinkled with lots of driving. My dad went into the hospital a few days ago (my parents are about 4 1/2 hrs from me) and we thought he was going home today, but it may be another day or two, so I drove over for a quick visit. He is doing well so hopefully he’ll be home soon.

    I love any kind of sprinkles! They all taste great, but the rainbow ones are so pretty!

    This weekend for me is gonna be fun trying some new things. See, I have this SUPER cool blogger girlfriend and I entered her giveaway and won this super cool food processor which shipped directly from France and arrived yesterday! Woo Hoo!! Trying out some food processing! :-)

    Have a beautiful weekend, Averie! xo

      It arrived! YAY!!! Lmk what you end up making…I can’t wait to hear all about it!

    that first picture of sprinkles makes me so happy!!!! What a gorgeous photo of what may be my favorite thing on earth. I think it’s totally framable lol ;) And after my sweaty run in this weather just now, I’m really craving watermelon! And an iced coffee. And a chocolate covered strawberry muffin, which I will be posting the recipe on my site tonight! Yum. PS: Those white/dark chocolate cc cake bars look more delis every time I see them!

      I liked that pic, too! If I was more clued in or had more time (or wasn’t scared I’d break my blog!) I’d try to use some of the pics I take as my headers for my site but it’s not worth totally messing up my layout! b/c if something is off by 1 pixel you can shift the entire center/sidebar columns of your site, break the site, not worth it :)

    Hope you’re having a great weekend, Averie! I bet SD is super sunny and gorgeous right now, per usual. Even if it’s foggy, I bet it’s a lot nicer than the heat rolling in to Sacramento! The sprinkle picture made me smile, as did those juicy nectarines and that huge ol’ watermelon. Pass the fork?

      we get may gray/june gloom realllllly badly here and most of those months it’s horrible! but right now, it is lovely during the day but not “hot”. Mid 70s where I am at coastal!

    My weekend was sprinkled with powdered sugar (on white chocolate puppy chow and in fudge) as well as with water and fun during our lake outing and triathlon!
