Hey there Loves! I hope you’re having THE BEST week! I know that usually Wednesdays are for me to tell you about What’s Up in my life, but I figured that can wait for tomorrow. Because I just realized something…
WE ARE LITERALLY HALF WAY THROUGH JULY. Say what?! I feel like I blinked and this summer has melted away, but also, I feel like it’s not really even summer yet because I haven’t been able to do all the summer things I love except go to the beach. Is this just me? Or are you feeling this way too?
I figured I’m not the only one feeling this way… which is why I teamed up with my friends at Hudsonville Ice Cream to help you indulge in summer and have at least one (or a few) perfect summer day(s) before the sun sets the first weekend of September and Summer 2020 is officially behind us.
5 Ways To Have a Perfect Summer Day
Pack a Picnic.
I’m sure all of you who have been with me since the beginning are rolling your eyes… Savannah suggesting a picnic? Groundbreaking. BUT have you ever tried a picnic with ice cream?! If it were up to me, I’d forgo the sandwiches and sides and head straight for the dessert.
The Perfect Scoop: Hudsonville Extra Indulgent Cookie Overload because a picnic without any type of cookie just isn’t a good idea.
Head to the Beach.
It’s no secret that a perfect summer day should be spent on Lake Michigan. Laying in the sun with your favorite book, splashing in the waves, long walks on the pier. You get it, the setting is perfect in itself. But to really indulge in summer, why not take summer’s favorite treat with you?
The Perfect Scoop: Hudsonville Extra Indulgent Mint Cookie Dough. A perfect combo of two classic ice cream flavors.
Take a Walk.
One of the best things about summer is getting to be outside! I love taking walks along the waterfront when I’m home visiting my family. But even at home in the city, there is nothing better than getting out for a walk on a pretty summer evening… and cooling down with ice cream after!
The Perfect Scoop: Hudsonville Extra Indulgent Raspberry Chocolate Chunk. To me, this flavor tastes lighter than the others, more like a sorbet. Perfectly refreshing and sweet after a long walk!
Catch a Sunset.
I love sunsets any time of year, but they are infinitely better in the summertime. My favorite way to chase the sun is always on the beach with ice cream in my hand.
The Perfect Scoop: Hudsonville Extra Indulgent Salted Caramel Brownie. Because this is the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Hands down.
Make a Sweet Treat.
And last, but certainly not least, make memories at home making a sweet treat! Trev and I LOVE to make ice cream sandwiches! We like to gather our favorite kinds of cookies at the store and smash ice cream between them! Spoiler Alert… we tried making these sandwiches on an uncharacteristically hot (and I mean 95 degrees and humid hot) summer day in NoMi. They were literally melting before we could snap pictures of our finished products… but I promise they were all so yummy! Here’s a few fun flavor combos to try!
- Brownies on the Outside, Mint Cookie Dough or Crunchy Peanut Butter on the Inside
- Chocolate Chunk Cookies on the Outside, Cookie Overload on the Inside
- Sugar Cookies on the Outside, Cake Batter on the Inside
- Caramel Stroop Waffles on the Outside, Salted Caramel Brownie on the Inside.
- Chocolate Cookies on the Outside, Raspberry Chocolate Chunk on the Inside.
