Mini-watermelons were on sale for $1.99 and it was a good one. Juicy and not mealy; just perfect.

I’m well-hydrated after all the watermelon I’ve had the past day.

I spent time with my girlfriend

Red Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer

And I made a batch of White Chocolate Blondies with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

We had a little get together with some friends and there weren’t any left over.

  1. That is so cheap for a watermelon!!! We never have sales like that here!

  2. We just stayed in, so no special eats. But then I still can’t eat much of anything until July. Can I please never have gum surgery again?!

  3. Congrats to the winner! You really have me craving watermelon now…mmmm. Now if only the weather up the coast here would cooperate! Haha. Never mind – I could probably eat watermelon in any weather!

  4. Hi Love!! I hope you had a great weekend :) This weekend I was driving a LOT getting across province and it was a blast!

  5. I hung out by the pool most of the day, swam, hula hooped read, and later on had s’mores by a fire pit it was a pretty nice day:)
