    Katie I love your new header! Very cute!!

    You don’t have much of a sweet tooth do ya? Usually when you posts treats like those (beautiful!) cupcakes they are made for someone else. I wish I could trade on my sweet tooth for a chocolate tooth but I have BOTH! And I love savory! Oh well, enjoy everything right?

    Hope you are having FUN on your vacay!!!! Hugs!

  4. The best summer dessert: peach slices and blueberries! Heaven in a bowl. I do LOVE watermelon though. And strawberries. And blackberries. And… okay. I’ll stop now! hahaha 🙂

  5. Meg says:

    Hey Katie! I hope you’re enjoying your vacay! My fave summer fruits would have to be mango and peaches! I made your peaches n’ cream oatmeal this morning and MAN was it ever good! I added a melted nanner in it as well for a little extra flavor, cause the peach I had wasn’t ripe enough to give it the sweetness I like 🙂

    Your nails are SO adorable, and that cupcake – you are so talented.

    I love watermelon! I think the fruit I’m waiting for most would be watermelon…and maybe peaches. Oh yum!

    Hope you are having an amazing time on vacation!

    Honeydew is my favourite melon. Why must cantaloupe always go on sale, and not my beloved honeydew? I think it’s melon injustice really. I’m also partial to the fresh local raspberries that we get in the summer. They beat out frozen anyday!

  8. Jane says:

    your nails look ADORABLE! it reminds me of this one stage my sister went through when she painted her nails different and creatively every week. ladybug nails were my favorite 🙂

  9. Anne K. says:

    Wow, those nails are so cute! That takes talent– I know I wouldn’t be able to do that!

  12. Sarah says:

    my favorite summer fruit is cherries!

  13. JB says:

    I’m definitely most excited for juicy white peaches!

  14. Sanja says:

    O, I cannot wait ’till watermelons are here. I love them. I also love raspberries, other kinds of melons, peaches, cherries, nectarines… ok, ok, I just love summer fruit in general.

  15. Sanja says:

    Oops, ’til, not ’till…

  16. Sarah says:

    Those nails are wild!

    I love local strawberries and peaches. Shortcake anyone?

    Hope you are enjoying your vaycay!

  18. Robin says:

    That watermelon manicure is seriously beyond adorable. 🙂 As for favorite summer fruit…I always get super giddy the first time each year that I walk into the produce section and see cherries for sale. Definitely always makes for an internal “Yippee!” moment. (Would make for an external “Yippee!” moment, but…you know…decorum. *Ahem*)
