My Top 10 Summer Foodie Finds



I love summer.  Everything about it.  Warm days, cold drinks, late nights, I really like it all.  Each summer I find items that reek summer.  This year I've found my Top 10.  A couple items I already have, some I've yet to buy and some on my wish list!

I know it sounds cliche, but I cannot believe summer is already halfway done.  At church this morning we ran into one of our kid's teachers and we she mentioned already being back in the classroom preparing for the coming year.  Wow!  It really is halfway done.

With each summer comes products I find that I love.  I've been eyeing a few here and there and even purchased a couple.  This here folks is my Top 10 list for the summer of 2015.  If you are a young mom I think you'll really love a few and if you aren't a mom there are still many that are genius! Items for your home, your car and your backyard barbecue or picnic.

Happy Shopping!

Vintage Blue Mason Jar Tumblers

For whatever reason we all love mason jars for reasons other than canning.  I'm right there with ya!  These blue vintage tumblers are ideal for your summer drinks.

My friend Michelle has a great blog post on making your own homemade popsicles out of fresh fruit and lemonade.  You NEED to read it, here.  She introduced me to these reusable ice pop molds.  Your kids will definitely get their recommended dosage of fruit a day with these.

For whatever reason my kids think they HAVE to have those little toothpick holders when eating sweet corn.  We have some, but inevitably I can never find them all in our utensil drawer, these I can just chuck when done!

I will have a Kindergartner in the Fall, who most likely will eat school lunch, but I know there will be days he'll want to pack his own.  I've been drooling over these Bento lunch boxes for quite some time.  The organization factor excites me.  They are also good for summer picnics {we have one at least once a week}.  Better then hauling my big cooler!

How do you wash your fruit?  I mostly do a vinegar/water soak, but I'd love to have this on hand.  It's so easy to just spray, wipe and wash off.

We were at Scheel's the other day {the husband HAD to buy a new golf driver...sigh} and at the check out they had these fruit infused water bottles.  I want one!  It reminded me of when we stayed at the hotel last weekend and they had stations of lemon-mint infused water chilling at the front desk.  I loved it!  So refreshing.

Staying on the water bottle theme, isn't it annoying when you put ice in your water bottle but an hour later it's melted and your water is luke warm?  Yeah, drives me nuts.  Stainless steel bottles hot in the heat or cold.  Perfect for toting around in the warm weather.

Again, back to our travels last week.  I had a cooler in the van and I swear I was traveling to the ice machine a couple times a day to keep our snacks cold.  Pain!  This travel cooler stays plugged in your vehicle when traveling = no ice needed!

I have one of these and love it.  Although I also use plastic snack bags, it's nice have a reusable one that you can wipe down and use again.  I bring ours on picnics, in the car, to church and well, basically everywhere.

Am I the only weirdo that likes drinking out of straws when chugging down my daily water intake?  For some reason it just makes it more fun.  Instead of buying a pack of 100 plastic straws every now and then, I need to purchase these reusable ones.  Hello!
