FRIDAY FAVORITES.....LITTLE JOYS EDITION

Happy Friday babes! I know, I know it’s hard! And to add to our fun Quarantine times has been Indiana weather that goes from 60s and sunny the windchill of 25 and snow on the ground! As I type this. 4 inches are predicted. Whaaat? We’re opening our pool next week. BUT, it’s all about finding little joys so I try to do that each and every day! I hope you will too!

1. Little Joys
Waking up and finding little joys every.single.day is what is keeping me sane!

EASTER TABLE
As you know, I had done my Easter Tiered Tray but I had not brought out anymore Easter decorations. A few hours before Easter dinner, I grabbed the Easter tub and spruced up a thanksgiving centerpiece with eggs carrots and a bunny, I love the way it turned out and I had almost forgotten about my bedazzled carrot napkin rings!

HIBISCUS
You know I love flowers and it’s getting close to time to plant our annual‘s. We have concerns about local greenhouses even being open and the process but the sweet owner of one of our small ones called me and not only has she already reserved me a couple tropical plants but she had five beautiful yellow hibiscus come in and that was exactly how many I needed (2 for mom) and she told me she put my name on them, so sweet!

Zoom
Zooming with friends is such a fun thing to do now and Monday night, the Chicago girls, as I called them, and I had a virtual happy hour. I’ll share the cocktail I had in the next segment below.


2. THE YETI BARTENDER
Peach Bellini Martini...and
I'm on YouTube!!!
So, kids I’m doing something new, I’m doing a weekly video which I’m uploading to YouTube called “The YETI Bartender! Each week, I will make a delicious cocktail and since I do not own a martini shaker, I utilize our yeti tumblers as martini shakers with the MagSlider Lid and they work perfectly! Here is my first one from YouTube below (I hope you'll check it out) where I made a Peach Bellini Martini and it was delicious!

VIDEO ON YouTube HERE

And I finally ordered proper set of Martini Glasses HERE

Mom's Martini's
I told my mom that when all this is over, she can be a guest star on The Yeti Bartender, here is her regular and Giant Dirty martini's she made this week!


3. Gifts Keep on Coming
I’m so blessed to have such thoughtful friends with such amazing taste. The birthday gifts are continuing to roll in and the thought behind them all made my heart so happy! 


Sweet Jill, who is one of the girls I zoomed with Monday night knows I love pink. She does too seeing as she blogs at the incredible Doused in Pink! She nailed it with a darling Ted Baker pink cosmetic case, fun hoop earrings that happen to match the adorable hair scarves that I can’t wait to wear with my bun or pony! She’s the Best! Read about one of our Chicago meet-ups HERE!


This cuteness and Magnolia Table volume 2 cookbook came from the sensational Shelly from The Queen In Between! It had extra sweet sentiment behind it because last November the style six girls and I spent time in Texas with a day at Waco and having Biscuits and Butters at Magnolia Table! Read about our day in Waco HERE!

Sweet Kate from Green Fashionista had such a precious thought in mind for my gift. She knows I love to create delicious meals for my family, so she had this custom apron made for me and I absolutely love it! The writing is in pretty rose gold which Kate loves too! I was supposed to meet this girly in real life last month, but it will happen in the future!

4. Tie Dye
Totally in love with this tie-dye maxi dress. This was a dress that was supposed to go on that trip with me, I was probably going to wear it on the plane because it’s as soft as butter! So instead, now, I just wear around the house like a comfy nightgown, LOL!

  26. Where to start on all the things I love in this post! I love the connections that you've made with blogging friends but also you obviously have mad respect from your community to have a florist think of you. I am also wondering about green houses and how this is all going to affect another wave of small business owners. I guess we just keep trying to support by curbside pickups. Happy birthday girl, enjoy it!
