Mood Board Monday

Happy Monday! With the warmer weather and Memorial Day weekend almost upon us, I’m drawn to pretty pink flowers and lush green grass and the preppy, yet classic color combination of pink & green. After the backyard BBQ I attended this weekend (here), I just want to be outdoors and throw my own backyard bash complete with homemade floral arrangements, summery decor and refreshing cocktails. Speaking of which, this watermelon cocktail looks divine {recipe here} – the perfect pink & green signature drink!

Pink & green may be too preppy for your taste, but like I said it’s a classic — and will never go out of style for a wedding or shower theme.

{Signature Drink} Whiskey Ginger

I love the trend of having a signature drink (or two) at a wedding. The hubs and I love a good ginger drink and opted for the Moscow Mule at our wedding. Had we gotten married in the winter, I think our drink of choice would have been a good ol’ Whiskey Ginger – It warms the soul on a cold night. So on Valentine’s Day, we whipped out our cute glasses, raided the liquor cabinet and settled in for a cozy, winter night with a proper cocktail in hand.


I can’t deny my love for food and drink – So it’s about time there was a recipe on this blog!


Oh hey, Jack & Ginger.


Paulie got his first taste of Blogging 101: Having to take pics each step of the way, being a hand model – and probably the most difficult – having to wait patiently before taking that first sip. (Thanks babe!)
