Festive Quick and Easy Outdoor Garden Inspiration – Christmas Arrangement

A close up of the quick and easy Christmas planter arrangement with #dustymiller ‘new look’ and #calocephalus ‘silver stone’ providing contrast to #poinsettia and #pinecones. Scattered about, varying the forms and textures to engage the eyes and encourage the eyes to travel throughout. The red poinsettia offers a festive feel. The silver foliage mimics snow and provides contrast. Lastly, each pine cone was hand picked to have hints of grey to tie into the silver foliage. The pine cones also contribute to the festive feel and adds a rustic element. Enjoy and have a great day! 😘🙋🏻‍♀️❣️

Halloween Spooky Jar Decor

Halloween is right around the corner so I spent some quality time making these spooky decorative jars with my son. These supplies were purchased at a crafts store.

Now that I have kids, I am making a stronger effort to make our house a home. I see that it excites them and it adds to the memories we are making together.

With kids, we get busier and things get more hectic. I found that involving the kids as much as possible has allowed me to get more done. Sometimes I assign mundane tasks like putting sticker barcodes on products or separating skulls and eyeballs makes them happy. It makes them feel important and gives them a sense of confidennce. It never used to be this way. I used to not want them around while I was working because I didn’t want them to break or ruin something. I choose my battles and tasks better now and I am learning to become a better mom every day.

I demonstrated how I put the SPOOKY jars together on a video. If you guys are interested in checking it out.

Delicious Michelada Recipe

An Authentic Mexican Michelada Recipe
Recipe Type: Beverage
Prep time: 5 mins
Total time: 5 mins
Serves: 1
  • Mexican lager beer (Modelo is typical)
  • Clamato (or tomato juice, if you really can’t stand the idea of clam juice in your beer)
  • 3-4 splashes hot sauce, more or less to taste. I use Tapatío.
  • 2 splashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 splashes of Maggi sauce (or soy sauce)
  • Juice of one lime
  • Tajín seasoning (or salt) for the rim
  1. Take about a tablespoon of Tajín (or salt) and sprinkle it on a small plate. Rub a slice of lime around the rim of the glass and then press the rim in the Tajín to salt the rim.
  2. Fill the glass about 1/4 to 1/3 with the Clamato juice. Add the hot sauce, the lime juice, the Worcestershire sauce, and the soy sauce. If you used Tajín to salt the rim, pour any excess from the plate into the glass.
  3. Fill the rest with cold beer.
  4. Garnish with a slice of lime and enjoy!
