How was your 4th of July weekend? We headed up to a lake with friends up in the Sierras that was so charming (some photos here on instagram). Fourth of July is one of my very favorite holidays, falling 3rd in line after Christmas and Halloween. Not only are red, white, and blue my favorite colors but everything about the 4th is quintessential American summer, which is just the best of everything. Today I wanted to share with you these fun rice krispie skewers we made. They’re so simple to make and really festive.
Here’s how to make these Fourth of July rice krispie sticks…

Even though it never really feels like summer here in San Francisco that doesn’t stop me from wearing summer outfits. It just means that I usually pair sandals and rompers with blazers and sometimes even scarves. Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite summer outfits in partnership with Hallmark Signature cards, special hand-crafted mini pieces of art that make the perfect, thoughtful card to give to someone special.

Denim and white is the perfect look you can wear from the beginning of spring, through summer, and into fall and then repeat it all the next year. This classic look is easy to re-create on any budget.
This baby girl will be 20 months in just a few days. What??? I just looked back at her 12 month update and can’t believe how much has changed in the last few months and how quickly she’s becoming a little spunky toddler. If you’d like to see, here are 12 things I don’t want to forget about our Edie Jean at 20 months…
The strawberry ice cream pie popsicles were such a big hit that I had to make another variety. This time, it’s creamsicle pie popsicles! I have to say, these turned out really delicious. They were manhandled when I styled them (as all styled food is) but despite that we’ve been devouring them all week.
More instructions on making them after the jump!
I was supposed to be flying out of town to throw one of my best friends a baby shower but she ended up having the baby 7 weeks early a couple days ago because of severe preeclampsia, which was pretty scary! I’ve been following closely on a group girlfriends text and can’t stop staring at pictures of this 3.8lb little girl. So, plans have changed and I’m staying home. We have family in town for the Bright Lab Lights Pop Up party here in San Francisco. If you’re around, come! I’ll be there with the whole family! I think we might try to see a ballgame too, maybe hit a pool up in Marin. Have a great one! Here are some links to explore:
