Kombucha Cocktails

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday. How’s the morning going? P and I went to the gym -I got in an awesome upper body workout- and now I’m back home getting some work stuff together while she naps. I just took out my planner and can’t believe how the weekends are filling up from now until December. 

This holiday season is going to be a hectic one. Once everything is settled, and we’re in a house, and all of our stuff has arrived (you know, the stuff that isn’t lost or broken in the process), I’m looking forward to:

decorating! (I always have a blast decorating a new space)

rediscovering our favorite spots while exploring new ones,

and entertaining!!

We’ve only had small get-togethers here in San Diego (usually a couple and their kiddos for “family dinner”) but in Valdosta, it’s going to be back to full-fledged dinner parties. The Pilot’s work community out there is pretty connected, and I’m looking forward to meeting the families and enjoying weekends together. When we moved to San Diego, we were kind of on our own as far as making friends go, and we have met some incredible friends who have become our family out here. 

Before we leave, we’re finally having a party with all of them, to celebrate P’s first birthday and to celebrate our friends who have been so wonderful. On the menu: tacos (catered by the taco man, who comes out to grill fresh street tacos to serve with rice and beans), sangria, fresh horchata, and something a little different for my fellow kombucha-loving friends.

Kombucha cocktails.

Tart Cherry Cider

This post is sponsored by The Cherry Marketing Institute. I look forward to fall every year. With the hint of briskness in the air, it gets me so excited for the holiday season. It’s a great chance to revamp your routine, tackle those remaining goals or resolutions, and get back in the swing of school […]

celebrating the man of the house

We took him out for burgers and the restaurant (Slater’s 50/50) gave him a bacon rose, so I think it was a win? 🙂 Hi friends! Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Ours was a lot of fun. We spent time with friends, the Pilot and Liv went on a daddy-daughter […]

Easter weekend

Hi friends! How are you? We are back from a whirlwind and wonderful trip to Tucson. (Livi’s dress is here, and P’s is here) It was P’s first plane trip! She was a champ, even though she was not the biggest fan haha. It was amazing to soak in lots of time with the family.

2015 year in review

Needless to say, a lot happened and changed around here this past year! 2015 was time of anticipation, new experiences and great adventures. It also been a transitional period of some challenges and growth, and I’m thankful for the lessons and moments that comprised a wonderful year. While there were some amazing parts of 2015, I […]

Happy holla days

Hi friends! How was your weekend? Hope you had a wonderful one, and that those who celebrated Christmas enjoyed a beautiful holiday.

Found & Lost

Did you ever lose something and were convinced your house ate it? My favorite Joe’s jean shorts went missing a couple of months ago and I looked EVERYWHERE. I seriously dug up everything in the closet to make sure I didn’t put them away somewhere weird. I wear them all the time and was convinced […]

Seis de Mayo

Just giving it a little love. 😉 How’s it going? Thank you so much for your awesome giveaway entries this morning… and for making me hungry with all of these brunch options and ideas. Apparently I need to seek out a place called SNOOZE— it seems like a majority favorite. 🙂 Keep those giveaway entries […]

Nana’s famous egg dish

Creme brûlée French toast and Easter adventures. 🙂 It was a great Easter this year. <3 I remember last year, when we had just moved here and had yet to meet anyone. We had a blast with friends (and were so thankful to them for taking us under their wings), but at the same time, […]
