When the weather gets warm all I want is a margarita. It is my favorite summer drink. This week I was dying for a margarita and wanted something a little different. I have rosemary in my garden and I was wondering if I could do something with that. I viewed some rosemary margaritas recipes on pinterest but they all had grapefruit and I didn't have any at home. My eyes stumbled upon the watermelon I had just bought sitting on my kitchen counter and the idea came together. More about this little cocktail creation and what I'll be wearing for Memorial Day weekend!
Ok so I'm really into cucumbers lately. Probably because Leo loves them so much so I end up eating them too. I was just eating cucumbers with red wine vinegar and salt and pepper but that wouldn't hold me over for very long. So I started throwing together different things in my fridge and came up with this little salad. I make it in advance usually on Sunday and I can snack on it on Monday and Tuesday. It is enough for lunch or a side for dinner.
White floral maxi is a bit out of my comfort zone, but when I saw this one online I thought I'd give it a try. I was afraid I'd look like a boho bride or something wearing all white. But that certainly wasn't the case. This dress needed the perfect backdrop and what a better backdrop than a blooming apple orchard. Read more about my views on floral prints and other patterns......
Every 6 or so months I go through and update you on my favorite new products. I don't think it's been 6 months quite yet, but I'm really digging these new products so much that I had to do a quick post and share them with you!
My Spring and Summer clothes are all over the place. Two summers ago I was pregnant and last summer I was nursing and hadn't lost all my baby weight. So what is a girl to do that day before leaving to Arizona and realizing I have nothing to wear that actually fits..... head to the mall. I'm from the Tri-CIties and let me tell you our shopping isn't ideal, but with a vision and a little creativity I was able to put together the perfect travel outfit. More about this outfit and shopping tips below.....
Holy breakfast refresh, I was needing a change in my breakfast routine and SO WAS LEO! I was over my breakfast and Leo had decided to stop eating pretty much all breakfast foods. I partnered up with some awesome organic granola and cereal brands to create some new recipes. The first recipe I tacked with a smoothie bowl. Sadly we don't live in a town where I can get these very easily so I had to take matters into my own and make my own. It was super easy and beyond delicious.
I am not one that is a big tie dye fan or pink but when I saw this bright pink tie dye dress I fell in love. It was bright, fun, and the neckline was something a little different. I'm always looking for new things in my closet and this certainly is something fresh.
When we bought our new house one of the first thing that dated the home was the "yellow" looking cabinets. They were everywhere in the house, don't get me wrong the house was very nicely built but wasn't my style. One of the main rooms I wanted to remodel was the master bathroom. I learned the most remodeling tidbits from this room. No matter what we did I couldn't make it my "dream" master bathroom. But making one big change and a few small ones I was able to transform it into a bathroom I could really love.
I have a fun little post today! One skirt and two looks! I saw this skirt online and fell in love with it because of the embroidery. I'm a sucker for embroidery! I styled it for some PNW spring weather, but when I was headed to Arizona and needed a outfit for a rehearsal dinner I thought of this skirt again. The idea was born of one skirt two ways to wear it. This great skirt works for both Spring and Summer and I will show you how.
I am NOT A BAKER! Let me repeat I AM NOT A BAKER! But the was one of the best thing I ever baked and I actually didn't screw it up! There is no secret I love sweets and this blueberry lemon bread is my perfect kind of treat. This is perfect for spring time and it will wow your guests if you serve this at brunch.
