Hello all and a very happy Saturday to you! Hope you’ve had a good week. Have you recovered from the gluttony of ice cream week? Honestly, I think I need an ice cream detox. Things are feeling a little snug around the waistline these days. I’m really craving healthy foods after overdoing it a bit during the ice cream week festivities. But how could I resist? It was all sooooo good! That Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream was my personal favorite but each ice cream was amazing.

One of the healthy things I’ll definitely be making this weekend is this lovely Lemon Quinoa Salad with Cherry Tomatoes and Perisian Feta from Laura’s Mess. That is definitely the Babbles Bookmark of the Week. I love the quinoa paired with all the vegetables, citrus and sharp feta. I can’t wait to make it!


This week has been a surprisingly low key week. The girls and I have spent a lot of time at the park and even took Murphy to a new dog park this week. Maddy and Molly loved running around with all the pups. But their favorite thing was digging in a dusty patch of dirt. I was keeping things under control for a while. Nothing more than dirty sneakers and hands. I went to give Murphy a drink of water and turned around about 2 minutes later to see Maddy putting dirt on Molly’s head while Molly kicked up dirt towards Maddy all to the tune of gleeful squeals. After those mere moments of my not watching, baths were definitely needed. Big time. But fun was had by all. Everyone came home and napped for hours.

Bark BoxOh and Murphy got his first BarkBox and we were so excited. I love that they send you about 4-5 treats and toys each month based on the size of your dog. This month he got a toy, three bags of treats and even a mix to make dog popsicles! It was such a cool box of treats for him. If you want to give BarkBox a try, you can get $5 off your first box HERE.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Here’s a recap of what was going on around here since the last Weekend Whisk.

What! I missed out on ice cream week? Darn…I’ll have to catch up to you. Actually, your Lemon Quinoa Salad sounds really good. I’ll have to try that.

I know!! And entire week of ice cream!! It was AH-mazing! There were so many great creations… my own as well as others. It was such fun. And I can’t take credit for that Lemon Quinoa Salad but I agree, it does sound really good. I’ll be making it this week.
