Mango + Banana Pops

Hi 🙂

I want to start this post off by saying “I know”… about all the crazy typos in my post yesterday 🙁

Sorry about that. I wish I had some cool excuse like “I’m on medication” or something like that… but no… it was just me, typing at lightening speed then hitting “publish.” It wasn’t until my husband read my post last night and said “What were you on when you wrote that post, there’s typos everywhere!” Whoops….

My mental note for today… “Must proof read, grammar check, and spell check all posts.”

Okay… moving on….

Its been a whopping four days since I’ve posted a picture of M… I think that’s a record! I snapped these pics yesterday of her trying to put on her daddy’s shoe. So cute 🙂

Since the SPINACH pops didn’t work out so well… I decided to make some MANGO + BANANA POPS 🙂

The ingredients were simple….



That’s what I love the most about making my own popsicles. The ingredients are simple and pure. None of that yucky stuff is added 😉


Ready for the freezer!

There’s no doubt in my mind that these will taste delicious! I rapidly slurped down the leftovers! 🙂

Thank you so much for all the compliments on my birdcage and my decorating style 🙂 Its still a work in progress 🙂

I did get an email asking me what my favorite scented candle is. That’s a tough one because there are so many that smell good!

If I have to choose one, it would be my beloved MILK candle by K. Hall Designs. I LOVE the way this candle smells! The smell is Vanilla, Coconut, and Milk, and is made of 100% pure vegetable wax. I want to buy there bath salts! Those smell heavenly!

I have a busy day ahead! I’m hoping to have to down time in the afternoon 🙂

Do you like scented candles? What’s your favorite kind?

    Estela, I love how you make your own popsicles. Maybe the spinach ones didn’t work out for your little one, but I think I would love them!

    I re-read my posts all of the time and am horrified. I try to proofread, but I’m always so busy that I just skim. Clearly, that’s not enough!! I’m also in love with M. She’s just so cute.

    I am obsesssed with candles but have never heard of that one! Now I really want it – I am a vanilla/coconut fan. I can’t do floral scents because they make me sneeze!

    I love scented candles. During the fall I’m all about pumpkin spice scented ones. But the rest of the time I really love Diptyque candles. They’re so expensive but sometimes I splurge since they smell amazing and burn nicely.

    These pops look great….I need to try to make my own. My kiddos would love them!

    I’m a fan of vanilla or apple scents in candles! I love them!

    Oh gosh candles are my favorite. I also really love incense. I love the tropical or fruity smells. Coconut and vanilla = heaven!!

    OK, I’m going in search of popsicle molds today. I forgot to look the last time I was at Target.We go through popsicles like they are water. Did you add anything else besides mango and banana?

    I’m going to make those pops, I have been making mango and banana smoothies and loving them. YUM-0.

    I’m a big fan of Voluspa candles…they’re pricey, but they smell SO good!!

    Your mango pictures really pop!

    I like SOME scented candles…they can really vary from delightful to awful smelling! I think the ones at Pottery Barn usually smell pretty amazing :).

    I am an expert in typo’s. Thankfully, blog posts can be fixed lickity-split and speaking of licking, those popsicles look so refreshing! Thanks for the idea!

    Too cute! The popsicles look and sound amazing! It’s also amazing how quickly M is growing. I can see major growth just between these pictures and a few weeks ago!
