Being Brickner : Popsicles & Pineapples

Popsicles & Pineapples

It's hard to believe that we are halfway through July, this summer is flying by (as does every other season once you have a child, I'm thinking that summer is just going even faster than those!).  We really are loving life right now, Waverly is at the best age to take advantage of everything the warm weather has to offer.  She adores pretty much every summer activity as do I, so most days we continue to act like we are on a three-month vacay & find some sort of fun, exciting outing. 
I'm starting to get nervous that Waverly thinks such is life, every morning after breakfast she looks at me & says "bye-bye?!", her face clearly expecting some sort of grand affair to come.  It seems that now me & the dog are hardly enough entertainment for her, I may just be in trouble. ;)

 Other than fun activities, there is way too much out there to love right now!!  As usual, I have been trying to tame my spending & also as usual, finding it nearly impossible.  Popsicles are an absolute favorite at our house right now (so much so that I slightly fear opening the freezer since a little someone will be at my legs within seconds demanding"POPS!").  So I was so excited when my mom bought Waverly this popsicle tank (no longer available, but I've got my eye on this banana one!), it couldn't be more perfect for her.


As far as actual popsicles go, I tried this recipe over the weekend that I plan to make for Waverly's birthday party.  Super easy & yummy, a definite winner!

Another current obsession, pineapples!  I know I'm not the only one (which is why they are everywhere!), but I cannot get enough.  This dress would be perfect for the rest of summer, this night tee looks so very comfy & can someone please help me explain to my husband why we need a white ceramic pineapple for our bookcase?!
Also, Waverly recently wore this pineapple tank & headband, it's safe to say she is my favorite little pineapple ever. :)


I also recently got this necklace as an Amazon daily deal from Monogram Online, I love it, love it!  It is my third "Waverly" gold necklace, but they are my absolute favorite & go with everything.


We hope you all had the best weekend!
We had some friends in town & had the best time enjoying the beautiful (slightly cooler!) weather we have had our way! :)


Looking forward to the #littlethingslinkup on Wednesday!
XOXO

  2. I love this!! I would love for Madeleine to give popsicles a try, but she doesn't like how cold they are!!! I guess that means mama gets them to herself for a little longer!!!! Looks like you ladies are having such a lovely summer xx

  3. That pineapple tank is adorable! And my kids are the same way. Every morning they come in my room to ask "where are we going today?". And lounging all day around the house is not their idea of fun...

  20. Seriously, this summer is flying by! And I know what you mean about constant entertaining and doing something! Goodness, Waveryly is so stinkin' cute with the popsicle! I know Kaitlyn would become obsessed, so I haven't given her any yet. We're pineapple overboard here too! K has that tank and about 4 other pineapple clothing items. Aaand I did pick up a white ceramic pineapple for our mantle a few weeks ago at HomeGoods! I'll tag you in a pic. Like 1/2 the price! ;)

  23. All the pineapples and popsicles! Love it! So cute though that she is ready for an adventure after breakfast. I kind of shut down over the summer because it is so hot outside in FL. Aria knows when dad gets home though that she can talk him into going on adventures while mom makes dinner. win win in my book.
