One of my Favorite Days of the Year!

Happy Sunday, dear friends.  

Thirty years ago in 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared July National Ice Cream month.
President Reagan also designated the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.
In honor of this auspicious occasion, I offer you a very sweet post for today.  Sorry, I that I am a tad tardy with this post - I was celebrating at Dairy Queen.

Buy yourself an ice cream and put it on my tab!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Guess we've come to a parting of the ways - IMHO Dairy Queen does not qualify as real ice cream but a soft imposter.

  2. Ok, might have to have dessert BEFORE dinner tonight!!

  3. Okay, and all this time I thought every day was National Ice Cream Day. :)

    P.S. Your tab at Dairy Queen just got a whole lot bigger.

  4. Last night the husband and I took a tapas cooking class. Dessert was an olive oil ice cream (made in an ice cream maker and including cream cheese) drizzled with a red wine, cinnamon and sugar reduction. I try not to overuse this phrase but OMG it was amazing!!!! I'm going to (eventually) write a post about it and will include the recipe. Truth be told, the topping was good enough to drink on its own or would be a killer topping on French toast - especially if that French toast was topped with ice cream!
