Summer Treats.

Ah, Summer days, you do treat me well. I was off work today, so my sister Hannah and I ventured out onto the streets of our town for a lovely bike ride! Hannah just got her bike yesterday off of kijiji, and I have had mine for a while. See more about my beautiful bike here. I'll have you know, I took all these pictures while riding! (except for the ones where we are obviously stopped...).

Ready to roll!

No, Hannah and I did not plan our outfits to match. And yes, Hannah was obviously on a mission in this picture.

Lookin' good, Han.

After our bike ride, I made a tasty treat for myself. It's similar to the Orange Julius from Orange Julius, but obviously not quite the same. Here's the recipe! I'm not sure where my family got it originally.

6 oz. frozen Orange Juice Concentrate (this is about half of a frozen can)
1 cup water
1 cup milk (I used soy)
1/4 c. sugar (you can do less, it's plenty sweet)
1 tsp. vanilla

Blend this all up, then add about 10 ice cubes, blend again, and enjoy a refreshing treat! This makes enough for two, with excess!

Also, I'm loving the rounded corners of my photos! What do you think? I'm working on transforming a bit around the blog!

Tell me, what are your summer recipes? Any bike rides for you folk? If you're looking for something neat to wear this summer, you can win a lovely pair of vintage earrings on the Ginger Diaries here!



  1. You have an awesome bik! I used to have a black granny bike that I loved, but I had to give it up when everything was too broken to repair. Now I have my grandpa's old bike, but I haven't taken it out for a ride yet...

    Enjoy the weekend!

  2. LOVE your bike! And your striped dress! I love bike riding in the summer, it's such an easy way to exercise. Annnnnd anything with fresh tomatoes is a win for me, they are the BEST in summertime. :) Happy weekend!
