Easy Strawberry Soda Jell-o Recipe
If this post isn’t evidenced enough that I don’t want summer to end, then I don’t know what will!
It’s Labor Day weekend and everyone in Blogland is making pumpkin desserts and planning their fall leaves tour. However, I’m going to be a total rebel and go with JELL-O and a pool party to enjoy every last second of summer!
I seriously don’t want it to end and I’ve got 5 good reasons that make total sense to me!
5 Reason why I don’t want summer to end
Reason #1 – I have really, really enjoyed sleeping in and I do NOT look forward to school starting and having to get up at 7:15 again. I hate it.
Reason #2 – I really, really enjoy staying up late. This goes hand in hand with #1. I get a lot of blog work done late at night. The house is quiet; the kid is in bed; I can totally focus on getting these posts written up and photos edited without disruption.
Reason #3 – Fall just means that winter is just that much closer… Ugh! I enjoy Christmas, but really dislike the three months of cold that follow.
Reason #4 – Now this is brutally honest… every single pumpkin recipe has been made. The moment I think I’ve come up with something original, I find it on Pinterest. I just don’t know what to make that would be “new”… So I guess I’m a bit underwhelmed…
And finally #5 – Summer treats are just so much fun! This strawberry soda Jell-O was fun – to eat and make! It was delicious and it was so easy to make and enjoy!
So, here’s to the end of summer. I hope that you had a great one! We sure did and we can’t wait until the next summer!
Have a great Labor Day weekend. Enjoy the sunshine and the warm breeze. Catch some fireflies, find a toad, and enjoy the family!
