CINCO DE MAYO INSPIRATION AND COCKTAILS

CINCO DE MAYO INSPIRATION AND COCKTAILS

One of my favorite holidays is on Sunday and even though I’ll be traveling, you better believe I’ll be celebrating with a margarita in hand! I absolutely love Mexico - the food, dresses, Otomi pattern you name it, I’m here for it! We are headed to Punta Mita, Mexico in a few weeks and I’m getting ready by celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a hydrating margarita recipe. I promise I will post a trip recap after this stay in Punta Mita as I know many of you have asked.

CREATING A FOOLPROOF BRUNCH GRAZING BOARD

CREATING A FOOLPROOF BRUNCH GRAZING BOARD

I asked my friend Marla from The Blonde Pantry to create a couple grazing boards for Piper’s party in December. Since then, several people have asked how to recreate something similar at home. We teamed up to break it down step by step. Cheese boards, charcuterie boards and grazing boards are all similar but I how much variety the term grazing board allows. You have as much freedom as you’d like to create something beautiful for your guests.

COLORFUL TODDLER EASTER BASKET IDEAS

COLORFUL TODDLER EASTER BASKET IDEAS

I know I say this before every holiday but how is Easter only a couple weeks away?! We have our first Easter egg hunt this upcoming weekend and I’m super excited for Piper to experience the fun. She was only a few months old last Easter so I kept her Easter basket pretty simple but now that she’s a full blown toddler, this Easter is extra special. Bed Bath & Beyond is my go-to when it comes to holidays and entertaining so when I was searching for what to add to her basket, I headed there first!

TODDLER SNACK TIME ON THE GO

TODDLER SNACK TIME ON THE GO

Now that Piper is a super active toddler, we’re constantly on the go! I love watching her explore, collect treasures (i.e. acorns and rocks) at the park, make animal noises at the zoo, and play with other kiddos during playdates! I know development is super important right now, so we’re doing our best to get her out of the house and experiencing new things—even if it’s exploring in our backyard.

WAY DAY PURCHASES FOR OUR NEW HOUSE!

I’ve mentioned this on instagram stories a few times but we are closing on our new house in a few days - yay! We have to paint and update a few things before we move in but I’m really excited to have more space and storage. We’ll use a lot of furniture we currently have but need some new pieces and light fixtures to make it our own. Today kicks off Way Day - the biggest sale of the year for Wayfair, All Modern, Joss & Main and Birch Lane plus free shipping on everything! You can’t beat the prices so I pulled the trigger on some items I’ve been eyeing. I’ve included links to all my purchases below. Happy shopping!

COLORFUL PICNIC MUST-HAVES

COLORFUL PICNIC MUST-HAVES

It’s the first day of spring, yay! This is by far my favorite season in Houston and I try to spend as much time as possible outdoors before the summer heat hits. We love packing up a picnic and heading to the park in the afternoons. I typically keep the food simple with an assortment of fruit, cheeses and crackers. I’ll put some flavored sparkling water and juice boxes for Piper in the cooler with an ice pack. Sometime I’ll even throw in some canned wine for the adults if it’s close to happy hour. :) It doesn’t need to be a big ordeal but I promise cute gear will make it feel festive. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite color picnic items below!
