sprite remix popsicles.

back in 8th grade or so, you could find me drinking up all the sprite remix on the back porch. remember that stuff? the original version they made was the BEST. so delicious.

i haven't forgotten it over the years. i think they've been coming out with new versions or something? i'm not sure. but i just have the fondest memories of its fruity fizzy deliciousness in the 2002 era. i think i always thought that it tasted like a magical elixir of skittles and carbonation.

i'm always up for trying out a new popsicle concoction that i've thought up. i often have burst memories of how much i used to love sprite remix. so i thought i'd make it in popsicle form.

look at all them berry beauties. just gawwwjusss.

and let me tell ya, the popsicles actually did resemble the taste of 2002 sprite remix. huzzah!

i think that adding an extra spritz of lemon and lime in the popsicle molds would be a nice touch. but overall, super easy to make & super refreshing. and if you were like me, guzzling sprite remix in the summertime, these will make you happy.

Sprite Remix Popsicles


  • 20 oz. Sprite
  • 1 cup mixed berries: blackberries & raspberries, etc.


Wash your fresh berries. Add a few different berries to each popsicle mold. Fill with Sprite, leaving half an inch of space at the top. Place the popsicle mold handles onto each mold and place in the freezer for about 4-6 hours. At this time, you can replace the popsicle mold handles with wooden popsicle sticks if you desire. Add a touch of Sprite if there are any holes or gaps in the popsicle form.

Freeze again overnight. I usually freeze all popsicles for 24 hours to ensure they're frozen all the way through.

obey your thirst, i say.






olde film photos.

pete found some photos from his old film camera that we took loonnng ago! i just LOVE looking through real, tangible, hold-in-your-two-hands photographs. there is just something so great about it. i don't even care if i don't know the people in the photos... i wanna see em!

here are some that i found the other day. i'm thinking this is 2009-2010.

^^these are my favorite. just look at pete's pure joy being pulled behind the sailboat. not even wakeboarding or waterskiing or anything, just a good ol' fashioned swim-behind-a-boat-while-holding-a-rope sesh. that boy lives to swim.

^^ oohh this picture gives me so many college feels. i'd probably just packed up my little bags and scampered off to hang out with pete and procrastinate my homework on a school night. or maybe we just got off work (we used to work at starbucks until 2 or 3am!). wearing my hood was the best (perhaps even my trademark? my college "look," haha!); the pinnacle in comfort. i don't really wear em up that often anymore, so this pic brings me back to all the days of rollin round town in my hoooood. rollin on a bicycle, that is, because i did not have a car. i essentially had two outfits: my all black smelly coffee starbucks work outfit, and an arsenal of hooded sweatshirts that i wore to school, at home, and to bed. 

^^ i love looking at these because i can tell who took which photos. i think its really sweet & adorable to see a photo that peter took of an otherwise bramble-y, unappealing area in the woods with a few pretty daisies or buttercups popping up. its so interesting to see how different people interpret a given space and how they use a camera to capture the space. the close-up mushroom photo...that's just more my style (i also did a pencil drawing in college of that mushroom photo, so seeing it again really brought me back!). i like to get up close to things. pete likes to capture things in a wider context. 

^^ this photo of me sinking in our inflatable water craft...peter just taking a photo from afar instead of helping me. lololol.

^^ these pics crack me up and also put me right back into the "stress" of college. pete visited me at the ceramics studio that night, where it looks like i am having a great time. he left to go check his work schedule and then came back with TWO beverages for me, a smoothie and an americano. because he wasn't sure which one i would be in the mood for (and because we got that shit for free). but, how sweet is that?! he was in freaking engineering school and could have been doing a zillion more important things. i love that guy. 

art school is weird because you're just forced to create, create, create on a whim. all the time. even when you have zero inspiration or have no idea what to do for a project, you still have to come up with something. there are so many projects i look back on and i'm like, whoaaa i can't believe i made that. because when you're prompted to make something within a certain theme, you're already being put outside your comfort zone. anyhoo, that photo is me undoubtedly scrambling to make something out of clay that would hopefully become a revolutionary work of art. definitely didn't happen. except maybe this huge tootsie roll i made. i still like that thing!

i'm so glad these photos exist. as amazing and convenient it is to be able to see billions of photos on a digital gadget at all times, there is just something so much more meaningful about photos taken on a film camera. you've only got one chance to get the shot, and the outcome is so much more authentic and real.

also, i ought to lay off the triangle-y patterned home goods.
