Wishing all of you a SAFE and HAPPY New year! Looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store! 2012, wasn't the greatest of years for me, as I was tested with a lot of trials and life challenges! I have learned a lot about myself and grown a lot within this year.  I can honestly say, that I having this blog and being a part of the blogging world has really opened me up to seeing things in a different perspective.  Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue on this blogging journey!  2013 I am coming for you! 
CHEERS! To a great year in 2013!

Loves Happy Hour!

Pomegranate Juice & Champagne!!! I need to try this!!

 Alcoholic Ice!! 
The smartest idea ever!!  I'll have to find a different type of bags to fill, but the concept behind it is genius!  Great for parties, premake the ice and have it ready to go! Makes it way easier to spike the punch!! haha!

 Chocolate Flavored infused strawberries! 
 Another awesome idea!! Soak strawberries in a container of chocolate flavored vodka for a day or so, then dip them in chocolate! OMG, my mouth is watering just typing this out!

 Bloody Mary jello shots!
This sounds interesting.  I can't even begin to think how you make Bloody Mary jello?? 
Refer to the recipe and instructions here.

 Margarita Bombs!
I'll admit that I do watch the Jersey Shore here and there, and I often see them drinking these and have thought to myself, those look so good!  
As you sip, you pull the Corona out so the glass fills with beer! Cool!

 Vodka Slushies!
This just sounds good! It's originated from Chef Emeril Lagasse, so you know it must be delish!
It's so easy too, check it out here.  This recipe is cranberry and orange, but I'm sure that you can easily change the flavors to your liking!

 Margarita Shots in Limes!
I like this idea, because you don't have to worry about shot glasses!  Just juice the limes, pour the shots and salt the rims! It's also very cute looking!

Sake Champagne Mojitos!
These look so refreshing! I love a good mojito and I love sake!! Find out how to make it here.

Since the New Year is right around the weekend! I figured that this weeks pinspirations be about the drinks!  I'm sure some of these would taste awesome as virgin drinks too!  For you non-drinkers out there, try these without the alcohol!  For me, I love a good drink!♥These are some interesting drinks that I found on pinterest!  They all seem somewhat easy, and believe me I will be giving them all a try!;)  I am slowly preparing for the New Year, cleaning, cooking, visiting, making resolutions and of course crafting!  How do you prepare for the New Year? What do you like to drink!

Tis' the Season!

 Not only have I been busy with the hustle and bustle of the season, I seemed to have misplaced my camera! :( It's within the masses and mounds of mess, from wrapping paper, crafts, gifts, etc.  I've had to resort to using my phone.  Here is a little mish mash of my season thus far!  Stay tuned for more to come, hopefully I will find my camera, by the next post!! Hope everyone is having a great holiday season! Happy Friday! Cheers to the weekend!!

Better late than never!


Okay, you got me! I'm a day late and many dollars short!  Haha! I've been so busy with Christmas and whatnot, that I totally thought that I did post this.  It came to my surprise today, when I realized that I didn't! :(  With that being said! Merry Belated Christmas!  I guess better late, than never!  I hope that everyone had a Merry holiday!  Christmas came and went too quick!  Now it's time to gear up for 2013!!  How was everyone's Christmas?!

Prayers to Newtown, CT.

Sending prayers out for all those involved with today's tragedy in Newton, CT. May you find peace in this time of sadness. 



This weeks pinspirations are all about the ornaments! These are all handmade ornaments that I found on pinterest!  So much fun, to make your own and share them with others.  I think that I am actually going to try a few of these.  Do you make your own ornaments? what do you do with them?? I love making little things and adding them to my bows when I wrap gifts.  Even if it's something as small as a little star made from wrapping paper or a little glittery twig or ting ting! I really does add a little pizazz to your gift!  I hope all of you are having a great holiday season so far.  Follow me on pinterest!

Holiday Food

This weeks pinspirations are all things that I want to try to make at some point this holiday season! All of them are so colorful and festive! Makes for a great spread!! We usually make 2 types of chex mix and cookies, and occasionally oregano pretzels, but I wanna do something different this year.  What are your go to recipes of the season?!
