Homemade Tattoos

  You know those super cute Bachelorette Party Tattoos that are all over Etsy? They are so easy to make!  I made a ton for my friend’s bachelorette party weekend in Chicago earlier this month. We had a THREE night bachelorette party and because I’m the kind of girl who loves a theme – each night had a separate themes: Last Swing Before The Ring Champs Drink Champs Boots and…

Hosting A Bachelorette Party

I’ve hosted exactly 1 bachelorette party in my life but I’ve been to more than a few.  The one I hosted was a 3 night destination party so it almost counts as 3 parties…right?  Bachelorette parties are the best.  All girls celebrating on of their closest friends or family members with tons of toasting, silly dancing and partying the way we used to before we had to “adult“.  Here are…

Montage Book

What to do with all the non-professional pictures from your wedding weekend or anything else important to you. Instagram has blown up so much over the last year.  Personally, I think hashtags is one of the reasons.  I love a good hashtag.  I loved having a hashtag for our wedding weekend because I was able to see the weekend from other people’s point of view.  The day after the wedding, P…

Our venue had 3 beers on tap that were constant but one there was an open tap so we were able to choose a signature beer.  I left P in charge…

Root Beer that’s Beer

As you may have noticed, I like to use alcohol in my baking and cooking.  I find the flavors of a liquor or beer help add a complexity that sets my food apart from other people’s.  In general I love being just off of center.  My MIL describes me and “classic with a funky twist” which is the hugest compliment.  My new favorite drink is exactly that – a classic…

Anniversary Cake

My husband P and I just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary.  We went at our favorite date night restaurant (the same place we went on the night we got engaged!) and had a great dinner tonight, complete the drink stirrers from our wedding.  But I was really excited to get home and try our year old frozen and defrosted wedding cake.                   I…
