To be welcomed to the venue, Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant on International Drive in the heart of Orlando, all guests were handed a glass of their Blanc de Blanc Champagne. The point of this was a champagne toast entrance but my wife and I took forever to get to the venue from the other venue. We had to drop Bentley Mac at home because he came with us to the wedding, obviously. But we didn’t want him going to the winery. Makes sense, huh? Well, my brother-in-law accidentally took our house and car keys with him to the winery so we noticed when we finished taking photos throughout Cypress Grove Gardens and he was almost there. We had to wait for him to turn around and bring the keys to FINALLY go drop the boy off at home. Read More
A pinch of the Irish to all those not wearing green today! I’m rocking it out with my high waisted green pencil skirt from the Luella collection at Target last century. Haha. I’m serious. It is from forever ago but Luella is still in style and this skirt is still bright and festive. Read More
We love the summer, especially since my wife is a July summer baby. With margaritas trending quickly on Pinterest, I knew I have to come up with another good cocktail recipe for summer pool party’s and barbecues alike.
Today we bring to you Watermelon Margaritas! Freshly made in our Breville juicer, we concocted this cocktail in just a few minutes. Just one watermelon and one lime will get you started in the right direction. A tiny bit of clean-up is well worth it once you take your first sip of this refreshingly lovely margarita, 86 the margarita mix. Read More
I love to make sangria, especially when the family travels to come and visit. It’s fun to get all the ladies in the kitchen to help cut up some fruit and have some much-needed bonding time. This particular time we were unable to make it together. Boo-hoo.
I forfeited the opportunity to go to Busch Gardens in order to prepare for a surprise party for my brother and sister-in-law. See more of that story here. I realized that Tropical Fruit Punch Sangria would be the perfect refreshment after the whole gang got back home. Busch Gardens is in Tampa and we live in Orlando so after they spent all day sweating balls at a theme park, they had to drive two hours to finally be able to sit down and relax at home. I was sure that they would have a huge smile on their face if I handed them a cup mason jar of Tropical Fruit Punch Sangria upon waltzing in the front door. Read More
It’s almost the New Year and it sure has flown by! We’re celebrating low-key in our apartment. We invited family over and are expecting a relaxing holiday at home. For the perfect New Year’s celebration, we had to make some drinks. I love making these Mango Passionfruit Margaritas because they are easy, delicious, beautiful and truly as healthy as drinks can get. Read More
