It’s August in Utah and that means it’s HOT. Like, going outside past 8 am is unpleasant unless you’re in a swimming pool hot. But I also don’t want to let the rest of summer pass me by! Staying inside all the time with two curious little boys isn’t exactly a memorable way for them to spend the summer, and it’s not exactly conducive to my sanity, either.
It’s a serious conundrum that I’m currently facing with copious amounts of cold snacks. Think popsicles, cold sandwiches, and frosty glasses of watermelon juice with lots of ice. Yum.
Well, as you probably know about me, I love any reason to celebrate, big or small. When I found out that there’s a National Watermelon Day and that it’s today, August 3rd, I’m sure you can imagine my excitement! I mean, we didn’t need an excuse to celebrate the summer’s most photogenic fruit, but we’ll take it all the same.
Read on for recipes, DIY projects, and products in honor of perhaps our quirkiest summer holiday, National Watermelon Day.
We could all use a little more celebration in our lives, and this watermelon round up for National Watermelon Day is a great way to make the everyday a little bit more special.
There are few things more refreshing than watermelon on a hot day, and lately, every day seems to require more watermelon than the day before (it’s been so hot here!). I’m happy to see that we’re not the only ones who are watermelon-obsessed, because there are so many other fun watermelon projects and products floating around the web these days. I don’t know if everyone else is also all about celebrating random holidays, but we’ll take it! We created a watermelon round up of our favorite watermelon-inspired products, recipes, and projects to help you celebrate!
