The Final Cone-Down with Blue Bunny Ice Cream

My celebration with Blue Bunny continues...summer is NOT over yet!
Be sure to read this whole post for fun contest and giveaway information.

Y'all summer is not over!  Yet.  We all think summer is over once Labor Day has come and passed, but let's be honest, other than school starting, it's still hot.  We are still mowing our lawns.  We are still hosting backyard barbecues.

So, in my book, it's still alive and kicking.

I have been honored to partner with Blue Bunny this summer on their various projects and this last one takes the cake.  They are celebrating summer right down to the very last cone. They are calling it The Final Cone-Down and you won't believe are the fun and exciting prizes they are giving away.

Here is a video teaser!

{View it quick and come on back....}

You can visit Blue Bunny's Facebook page everyday from now until September 22 for a chance to win cool prizes, including personal electronics and some other great gear.  I will also be giving away some goods so make sure to keep reading.

Blue Bunny wants everyone to hold on to that last drop of summer sunshine and what better way to do that than with ice cream!  From now until September 22 you can submit a photo of yourself enjoying the last few days of summer using #TheFinalConeDown and #BlueBunnyWinBig on Instagram or Twitter.  Once submitted Blue Bunny will confirm your entry, then sit back, relax and see if you win!  Official rules can be found here.

I invited a girlfriend over along with her kiddos one day for lunch and ice cream of course.  It was our own little final cone-down!

Our spread included classic Blue Bunny vanilla ice cream, cones, mini M&M's, mini chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, chocolate chip cookie pieces, hot fudge, caramel and marshmallow creme. Whew! The kids were super excited....it's not everyday we indulge them like this.

I had never held an ice cream bar at my house and I'm starting to wonder why and the heck haven't I? Especially with three kids under the age of 6.  Should this have been on my radar?

This spontaneous little party even threw the kids for a loop.  

"We get ice cream after lunch?"

"On a Tuesday?"

"Is it someone's birthday?"

Yes, yes and nope!

Their responses were the exact reason why I love how Blue Bunny is challenging everyone to extend their summer fun.  Because why can't we have ice cream on a Tuesday afternoon in between preschool drop-offs and school pick-ups and after school programs and the like?

Will you make time for it, like I did?

I even indulged on this random Tuesday.  I've really been limiting my sweets {such a horrible problem to have}, but I let myself have a big old ice cream sundae.  Remember that list of toppings I rambled off earlier?  Yeah, my sundae included every single one of them, right down to the marshmallow creme.

It was beyond delicious.
