Default Last chance to critique my recipe!

I modified a recipe from 3sheetsEMJ. It's a blonde I'm adding blueberry to, for the lady. I modified it down to a 3 gal batch. My plan is to add a blueberry purée to the primary after a week (my other fermenter is in use), then blueberry extract at bottling. I used brewtarget to help make sure it looks ok, but before I pull the trigger I could use some encouragement.

2.5 lbs briess pilsen extra light DME
7.5 oz briess wheat DME
5 oz. Carmel 10
.45 oz Glacier @50
.3 oz Glacier @15 min

Your thoughts?

Are you going to add all the wheat dme at the end, so it stays lighter (for the lady)?
How much blueberry puree? 3 gallons would be around 3 lbs right?

Other than that, I have never brewed a blonde, so that's all I have to give.

Yeah, I planned on adding the wheat at the end. I'm not sure how much purée I'm going to do...probably not too much. Maybe 2lbs. More or less just to say it's in there. From what I've read it's difficult to get a consistent fermentation and flavor using blueberries, and that extract is the easiest way to go.

Any other advice out there? I'm brewing this Saturday.

Anyone else? I think the recipe looks solid.
