Month: July 2015

Make your own ice cream sundae bar with Dreyer’s (win free ice cream!)

July is National Ice Cream Month, which means my husband will be in a state of euphoria because what could be better than having an excuse to spend your entire month eating ice cream? Not that he needs it. The man has a bowl of ice cream every night before bedtime, no matter what the season. Mile High Mamas is thrilled to team up with Dreyer’s/Edy’s ice cream to turn scoops into smiles and we’re giving away coupons for free ice cream.

But I’m not just mean to other people...
