Do you love shakes as much as I do?
I have to make them a lot at home, especially for Miss M. She loves all kinds of shakes, but especially vanilla and banana. So I often have a glass too, because really, who could pass that up?
So while the kids are visiting their dad for a few days I decided to make a fun adults only boozy shake. This could be my new favorite thing.
If you are looking for comfort, style, and to show your patriotism this 4th of July then take a look at this distressed red, white, and blue flag tank from Tipsy Elves – who were kind enough to send me one.

This tank really is designed to flatter, it's fitted at the top and then flows.

This project has been on my to-do list for a couple of years. I know, some may think that my craft room is full of stuff that probably needs to be tossed out, but I swear it all has a reason for being there, sometimes it just takes me a little while to get around to doing the projects I have in mind.

Sometimes, simple is best.
Sometimes, you get caught up all too quickly when entertaining at home, trying to make sure that everything is perfect, but not really enjoying the moment.
Whether it's preparing elaborate dishes, cleaning your house, or pulling together a fancy table, it can become overwhelming very quickly. If you are having a few girlfriends over though keep it simple, enjoy the moment and be present, instead of spending your time in the kitchen prepping, baking, and cleaning up.
Inspiration can come from the simplest of things. These vibrant salad plates are part of the Lina Cherry collection from Villeroy & Boch.

I'm a collector of cheap shirts. Whenever I see plain shirts or tops on sale that will fit the kids I always pick up a couple in a size that will fit them now and the next size up. We use these to decorate our own fun shirts for the kids to wear, it's so much cheaper than buying pre-printed/decorated shirts, although we do occasionally purchase those too if we find them on clearance.
This cute blue top was $5 at Target. It's a racerback shirt with a cute bow on the back. I thought it needed a little something on the front too, and Miss M is all about bling and glitter and rhinestones.
