Ice Cream Inspired Treats – Best of the Weekend 7/19/19

Who doesn’t love ice cream in the summer?  With the scorching summer temperatures, I have a hard time saying no to my kids when they ask me to take them out for ice cream.  Heck, I am the one who suggests it most of the time!  Needless to say, this week I was inspired by the ice cream inspired posts linked up last week.  Be sure to check them out in the features.

In the meantime, welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  We are so happy you could join us!  Each week, we invite you to link up your creative posts including anything DIY, home decor, recipes, crafts and more!   Let’s get started!

Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media!  Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.



Besides eating ice cream in the summer, another of my favorite pastimes is reading on the beach!  Be sure to check out some of my favorite books…

Apparently, I am not the only one interested in a good book.  Last week’s most clicked post was New Books July 2019…

      I feel the same way! Of course, if I ate the ice cream outside it would melt in a second! This heat is crazy today…stay cool!

    Thanks for hosting! This week I am bringing more goodness from my home to your table. A delicious Blue Cheese Cole Slaw kicks off the list. Then a Three Color Pasta Salad salad for a cold light summer lunch. To round off the menu is a simple but delicious Creamy Grape Salad that Grandma used to make! Enjoy!
