Here's To Ya...


I seem to be using this photo of a
AUDREY HEPBURN  quote in several posts lately.

I love it so much that I want to get a poster....A PRETTY POSTER...
and have it framed for my bedroom.



SOMEtimes, when we have a few strawberries that are "soft" and might not make it another couple days,
I gather the good stuff
and make us a little milkshake.


Just a few little goodies added...
a tiny scoop of
sweetener...

a cap full of VANILLA.....

scoops of ice cream...
...for these, I had only a couple of small scoops of ice cream...



I've had the RED WHITE and BLUE on my mind a lot this week.

 ...maybe because the 4th is right around the corner and all my magazines are showing
THE COLORS....

 


I "raise my cup" to you today and hope that you have a wonderful day.

You always show the most yummy things....it is so hot here, nothing sounds good right now....but that looks so refreshing!

LV said...

That is a perfect quote good for all of us. I would like two scopes of ice cream please as it is as hot as you know what here.

Debbie said...

I happen to love that Hepburn quote and want it framed around here. I keep saying that, but I never do it.

I have been drinking a lot of strawberries and cream (almond milk, here) smoothies lately. So cool, and so good!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love the beautiful quote and pretty poster that you chose! What a treasure for your new home! I voted on your sidebar! Hugs!

Marie_Angelique said...

Oh yum! That looks like a perfect summer beverage!

Audrey said...

Your drink looks so tasty. I forget about making smoothie drinks, but I do like an occasional glass of ice cream, peaches and chopped pecans.
Hugs,
Audrey Z. @ Timeless Treasures

Sarah said...

Same to you, BJ! Happy Pink Saturday and Happy 4th of July.........Sarah

Marcia Pilar said...

Have always loved Audrey's quote, and I'm crazy about strawberries too. We do the same when they start to go.
Yum.
Happy pinks and happy 4th!

NanaDiana said...

I hope you had a wonderful day, too, bj. I am so far behind this summer that I can't believe it is almost the 4th of July. Summer is going way too fast. Oh-My- Does your strawberry cup of goodness look yummy- xo Diana

These look so delicious and refreshing! And very patriotic!!

Thanks for putting up the poll on the Paula Deen happenings...totally unfair and I'm so glad so many of your readers agree. She is being burned at the stake.

XO,
Jane

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Shh, don't tell anyone, but I just had some ice cream with strawberries! It was a wonderful, nearly-midnight snack. :)

The smoothie looks very tasty, too!

Btw, I voted the last time I was here on your sidebar. I think they are treating Paula very unfairly. There is such a double standard these days. Where's the outrage over the things Bill M.aher says on his show?

I've always loved Audrey's quotes. She was a classy lady.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Kathleen said...

Looks very refreshing, BJ!

Hope all is well with you!

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Looks like a great treat BJ! Happy Weekend:@)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I could sure go for this...big time! It's been so hot, and today it's predicted to be in the triple digits ---so bring on the cold refreshments. I'm there at your doorstep!!!!

Susan Clayton said...

looks and sounds yummy. Happy Pink Saturday!

Vee said...

Those strawberry milkshakes look so refreshing. Since the strawberries came ripe last week, there's been nothing but steady rain and so they are rotting in the fields. Such a waste! Poor farmers who invest so much into them and get nothing in return. Sigh. I need a happy pill...maybe a strawberry milkshake.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

What a cute way, to do a Red, White and Blue theme! :-)))))

And love that new pic of you, on your sidebar. In black pants and top. Love it.

Theresa said...

SO pretty and I am SURE VERY yummy:) Have a blessed weekend dear BJ, HUGS!

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Beeej! I love Audrey, so classy. I have been so dang busy, it is hard for me to get to all the blogs, but I miss you and glad I came today!!!

Patty Patterson said...

I'm not sure who Aubrey H is, but I believe in PINK! With three little girls, I have to. If it's pink it's pretty - right?

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, my friend. Those look yummy and refreshing.

I hope you enjoy the Fourth with your family.

What a cool, sweet little treat for a very hot day! could have used one of those at the party..but settled for some delicious lemonade. Wish it'd been strawberry lemonade! :)
WHERE the heck are those buyers! Maybe today. I'll think positive about it!

Beth said...

Looks delicious! I made homemade ice cream on July 4th and served fresh strawberries with it. I also have blueberries and black raspberries ripe in the garden right now.
Enjoyed the post on Beverly and her hsb's 50th too. What a party!
