David and I are headed to Dallas this weekend and we are both so excited! We can not wait to get back to our own house instead of this teeny tiny apartment! And of course we are looking forward to the amazing weather! I have a feeling we are going to spending the whole weekend outside. David and I usually spend quite a lot of time on our friends patios when we go home, enjoying the time we have with them and of course the gorgeous weather. I have recently been dreaming of our patio plans and here are some of my favorite home-spriations!
With all this cold weather in Cincinnati, I have been getting the sniffles so frequently! David and I were out one night to dinner one night and I ordered a drink, when the waitress told me I sounded like I needed tea and she was going to make me a Hot Toddy. Of course I had never tried one (if you know me I rarely take adventures with my food) and of course I became obsessed! To the point where David and I immediately after dinner went and bought a teapot and whiskey! Here is my favorite recipe for a Hot Toddy and a few of my favorite home goods to go along with this amazing drink.
1.5 ounces of whiskey (my favorite is Maker’s Mark)
1 tablespoon of honey
quarter of a lemon
1 cup of hot water
1 Chamomile tea bag
*coat the bottom of the glass with honey. add liquor and lemon. on the side heat
up a teapot full of hot water and make a cup of Chamomile tea. Add the tea
to the glass, stir, and enjoy!*
Some say that a Valentine’s Day wedding, the day where all things glitter pink and cupid flies around, might be a cheesy day to pick for your special moment, but this Valentine’s Day I dare to defy that! I found some amazing Valentine’s day weddings that are delightfully stylish and sophisticated. Never let a cliche or misconceptions others have prevent you from having the wedding of your dreams!
The week of Valentine’s is all about pairs. This is the week to buy chocolates for two and of course celebrate your better half. I had to pay homage to this idea of couples and pairs with a home-spiration full of amazing double sinks. I think that most of us who live with our significant other know that one of the keys to a very happy home life is double sinks! Here are some of my favorite double sink h0me-spirations…
