I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! We had a quiet day, but it couldn’t have been better, complete with good food, football and of course family. The day prior I put together an order of cranberry vanilla bean french macarons for my daughter’s teacher. They turned out so good that I made some extras for our Thanksgiving dessert and paired them with a cranberry champagne cocktail.
I know I’m not the only one who had a long and rough week. I’m with you. I’ve felt the emotions and the heartache myself, along with friends and loved ones at home and across social media. There are many needing extra support right now. Instagram specifically has been a place full of beautiful words, kindness and inspiring posts, all of which warm my heart. That sense of community has brought with it peace, and comfort, and a reminder that we’re not alone, and that the worries and concerns we’re feeling right now are surely valid.
Happy Monday you guys! It’s official, today is my birthday! I’ve actually been celebrating all weekend, but I’m continuing the festivities this evening with fun sparkling cocktails and the Seahawks of course!
Since no birthday celebration is complete without champagne and cake, these sparklers are a must!
Hello all! Happy November!! I hope you had a fabulous Halloween! My hubby and I spent the evening up in Canada trick or treating with our girls. We go up every year to celebrate with family because we live so close.
My girls had their minds made up on their costumes several weeks in advance and were in cutest flamingo and Seahawk cheerleader form, as they walked from door to door last night. We were very fortunate that the rain held off. Even after getting a late start, our girls came home with 2 full bags of candy and unique treats.
Happy Halloween weekend! This is such a fun time of year, where anything goes when it comes to dress up and decor. I had that thought in mind, when I decorated a few mini ghost pumpkins hanging around the house the other day. The pumpkins are inspired by the adorable #unicorncake(s) I keep seeing over on Instagram.
Take plain popcorn to the next level with a few sweet and spooky add ins, fitting for Halloween.
This quick and addictive popcorn mix takes just moments to make, with dark chocolate chips, salty pumpkin seeds and ghostly mini marshmallows.
The marshmallows are super cute and take seconds to decorate using an edible food pen.
Hope you guys are having a great start to the week! If you love Nutella as much as I do, then today’s quick and easy recipe is for you!
I was experimenting with the idea of making homemade dairy free nutella a few days ago and although I didn’t get nutella, I did get a rich chocolate and hazelnutty blend with a consistency perfect for making truffles.
If there was one beverage you could have on demand this season, what would it be? Champs is a no brainer for me no matter the season, since it’s my go-to for celebrating, entertaining and sipping on the weekends.
But what about you? I see so much talk relating to Pumpkin Spice Lattes during Fall, perhaps that would be your beverage of choice? Wouldn’t it be amazing to enjoy PSL and Champs at the push of a bell?!
Happy Friday! I thought I’d shared a home progress update with you all today, since it’s been a while.
You know when people say that construction always takes longer than expected? Well that’s exactly what we’re experiencing right now. Some major delays and slow downs with drywall and a water leak in our catchment storage tanks have set us back several weeks. So right now we are 2 months beyond our home move in date.
