Every summer I get all crazy for Watermelon. It’s the quintessential summertime fruit and I want to relish every little bit of these fleeting months by eating my weight in the stuff.
And I don’t stop at plain old slices…
I’m good at stalking foodgawker.com for new recipes and while my favorite will always be watermelon slices topped with bacon, goat cheese, and balsamic (OMG), I’ve found a new favorite to bring to the watermelon party.
All I do is food process the heck out of the stuff and pour it into popsicle molds. After a couple of hours of freezer time, I’m reaching for my watermelon fix sans all that sticky juice.
All this talk of watermelon reminds me…
The Cosabella Never Say Never Prettie bra comes in a shade that almost exactly matches the a fore mentioned popsicles.
Looks like now I can have my watermelon year round.

Meredith and I were leisurely walking around Fresh Pond yesterday afternoon, working off our brunch of carbs and bacon, when we got the news.
Our pride and joy, our labor of love, our little lingerie store, has been named Boston’s Best for Intimate apparel!
We are genuinely excited and honored to receive this award…a huge thank you to the Improper!
