I sure hope all my readers are having a wonderful summer. This is my FIRST summer off as a Teacher! I gotta say, it’s pretty awesome. Being a teacher is the most wonderful job I have ever had. It is also one of the most stressful, tiring and time consuming job I have ever had! So, Summer’s off are GREAT!!! Now I can enjoy days in the summer with my family, picnic, trips to the beach, pool or spending the day at the park.
It’s hot….really hot! We have discovered the Fruttare Fruit Bars are a delicious way to cool off. They are wonderfully flavorful, a healthy dessert option and come in TEN flavors! Flavors like Strawberry & Milk, Peach & Milk, Banana & Milk, Black Cherry, Pineapple, Lime, Mango, and more! I found mine at Kroger! Starting July 1st Fruttare packages will all contain a $4 Music Reward Code. Once you’ve purchase your Fruttare click HERE to redeem your $4 Music Reward. Reward is valid from July 1st through July 31st.
While having fun in the backyard one day, I brought out some Fruttare Fruit Bars for my daughter and her cousins to enjoy and cool off. It was HOT and the girls really enjoyed the pops but unfortunately they all became a sticky yummy mess! I thought up a quick, easy and fun way to stay mess free while enjoying pops in the hot summer sun.
I call them the DIY Summertime Popsicle Drip Catchers! They are made from colorful fun cardstock. You can incorporate them into any themed party!! How fun, right?
They were SO EASY to make. I’ll show you how.
You will need…..Fruttare Fruit Bars, colorful fun cardstock, a pencil, scissors, ruler and hot glue.
I cut my cardstock into squares that measured 3 3/4 inches.
Then, using my ruler to score the paper I folded opposite ends at 1 inch. Then, folded the other ends at 1/2 an inch each. Keeping the 1/2 inch folds in place, I then folded up the 1 inch sides. Now, the 1/2 inch ends you have to work just a little bit, much like wrapping a gift to get the folds just right. The ends should meet like shown above and on the inside you will have a little triangle. Hot glue that triangle up to the inside of the paper where the two ends and the triangle meet. Then I snipped a tiny hole in the middle of the bottom where the popsicle stick will go. Once the hold was snipped I placed the scissors through to make a slit for the popsicle stick.
It’s really just like wrapping a boxed present, or a half boxed present. Once your done you will have a cute little popsicle drip catcher!
Now all you need is a backyard party, pool party, trip to the park or any fun activity that gets you outside. That is just what we did! We enjoyed the hot summer sun and cooled off with a delicious Fruttare Fruit Bar!

Hush is what we think to be a Maltese-mix. He showed up in our yard during a storm and flood last September. Over the following weeks, we posted signs and walked him all over the neighborhood in search of his owner. After zero responses, Hush became ours. Alice, my five year old daughter, named him Hush because he likes to “YAP”!
Now, I am not a dog person. I was the owner of a cat that I loved and cared for from the time he was 6 weeks old until he passed away a just few months after Hush became a part of our family. Our cat Gizmo was nearly 20. You can imagine how devastating this was to me and our family, but Hush was a sweet comfort to all of us and continues to be so.
As a new dog person, I’m still learning what dog are like and how they eat. It still feels weird to pour out the drained tuna water instead of giving it to my Giz. Hush is a VERY finicky eater. He mostly likes scraps and moist dog food. I’m pretty excited about taking this 28 day challenge with Hush for one because he actually LIKES this food. He eats it!! Until now, he would be quick to snub dry kibble type food.
For the 28 day challenge we are hoping to see an increase in energy, a shiny nice coat and better dental health. Day 1 was a hit, he ate the food, which I said before he NEVER does.
