Happy National Dog Day! I’m a proud fur mama of two amazingly quirky Brussels Griffons and what better way to celebrate their unconditional companionship than with their very own holiday? Life for them is certainly about to change and they have no idea what’s coming!

It’s no myth or secret that pregnant women crave ice cream! I’ll be the first to tell you just how true that is, especially in this crazy South Florida heat. Sloan’s Ice Cream, with locations spread around South Florida (& California for my West Coast babes!), recently invited me to try their creamy cold concoctions – and how could I ever pass that up?! That decision wasn’t hard at all, the tough decision was choosing something to indulge in off of their ahhhmazing menu.
So what did I choose? Well being that I’m a true Floridian, I opted for the Sandcastle Sundae which consists of a REAL beach sand pail and shovel filled with 5 scoops of ice cream (of your choice), hot fudge, caramel, wet walnuts, any 2 dry toppings and a chocolate chip cookie on the bottom with lots of whipped cream and cherries. I was able to choose which flavors I wanted in my bucket and I went with Fresh Strawberry (my classic!), Almond Joy, Coconut Storm, Dulce de Leche and Fluffy Road. A bucket of ice cream in itself is a pregnant woman’s dream. But add in all the other goodies like an ENTIRE chocolate chip cookie, fudge, gummy bears and a mountain of whipped cream? That definitely calmed the mood swings for a bit!
Not only does Sloan’s offer the best ice cream in town, but if you’ve never been inside a Sloan’s before – you have to see it for yourself. All Sloan’s locations standout with their iconic pink storefront and are every ice cream lovers’ wonderland with colorful whimsical chandeliers, retro candy and fresh fudge & cookies. You’ll definitely feel like a kid again!
