I usually never say this when I am working but man this week went by quickly!! After our busy past weekend I am so happy to have a weekend of minimal plans. Besides dinner at my mom’s on Sunday we have absolutely nothing planned and it is fantastic! To all the moms out there I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!!! Now time for some favorites…
Favorite Summer Must Have: What is better than a cold popsicle on a hot summer day? A BOOZY popsicle on a hot summer day! The people over at Fruta Pop make this a reality. They have 13 different flavors: White Coconut Sangria, Coconut Rose Sangria, Traditional Red Sangria, Traditional Margarita, Watermelon Margarita, Classic Mojito, Rum & Cherry Coke, Strawberry Mint Julep, Moscow Mule, Cosmo, Cranberry Martini, Classic Mimosa, & Pomegranate Punch. Yes please!
Favorite Awwwww: In today’s day and age most new parents do a newborn photo shoot so with that as inspiration photographer Kitty Schaub decided to do a “newborn shoot” for her new adopted kitten. The results are one of the cutest things I have ever seen! The pictures were so popular that she made them into a calendar and all the profits go to Save-a-Stray in St. Joseph, MI. You can purchase that here.
Favorite DIY Gift: I really love DIY gift ideas for all occasions especially if you are a woman on a budget like I am! There are so many creative ideas out there and there is nothing better than making a gift you know someone will use rather than just buying them something to buy. If you have a friend or family member who loves to throw back a cocktail these DIY Mason Jar Cocktail Gifts are perfect! There are so many options from rum & Coke to Red Bull & vodka to Crown Royal & ginger ale.
Favorite Funny: You can now be the ultimate hostess by giving your guests something fun to do in the bathroom. This Bathroom Guest Book from Knock Knock is a hilarious addition to your bathroom! Your guests are welcomed to sign in, doodle a picture, pick a song that describes that bathroom visit, rate your bathroom, among other silly things.
Favorite Savory Breakfast: Whenever my grandma makes her rice & beans everyone always accuses me of stealing all the chorizo. That is only partly true, I leave like one or two for everyone else! Anytime I see a recipe with chorizo I always save it and this Chorizo and Fried Egg Breakfast Taco was no exception. Sounds so yum!
Favorite Vacation Keepsake: My husband’s closet if full of shoe boxes that contain scrap-booking materials that I can’t seem to get rid even though it’s been about 15 years and I have made MAYBE two pages. I always think one day I will start, however if I never do these vacation keepsake boxes from Martha Stewart Living are a great alternative to keep all your vacation pictures, tickets, souvenirs, etc., together.
Favorite Camera Accessory: I love finding accessories to make my professional camera look cuter and these Fotostraps do just that. They come in a variety of colors and you can personalize the strap with your name, initials, logo, or whatever else you might want. How cute are they?!
