Honey-Lime Watermelon Floats

Honey-Lime Watermelon Floats recipe (via the pigandquill.com) #icecream #dessert #summer

It’s October. Or as Lana has taken to saying, “it’s almost Halloweeeeeeeen tiiiiiiiiime!” (Followed, always, by “the scary guys are just pretend, Mom. The scary guys are just pretend.” Thank you, sweet babe.) So here we are, officially entering into that love/hate time of year where, for procrastinators like me, shit either happens RIGHTTHISMINUTE or gets nudged happily into “early Q1 // happy face // talk soon!,” which would almost explain why I’m pushing a fruity summer float when pumpkins should be springing outta my bum.

Watermelon, Orzo and Feta Salad

So I’m back from squeezing the best friend’s baby, and all I have to say is holy cow babies. As in holy cow babies are so cute. Holy cow babies eat ALL the time. Holy cow babies look like little people versions of glow bugs. And holy cow babies are a BUTTLOAD (with capital everything) of work. I had no idea. I mean, and I’m the kind person that even thought I had some idea, but I totally did not. I was so very wrong. I am so very tired. Just, holy cow babies. (I kinda loved it. Shhhhhhhhhh.)
