Graduation Gift

Every graduate loves the gift of money! For our graduating friend, we dressed up a graduation cap box with stickers & rolled up the money to look like a diploma! I lined the box in black & white polka dot tissue paper & added a little personal note for the graduate. Bring on the pomp & circumstance!

Strawberry Mint Limeade

I wanted to make a cool and refreshing drink this holiday weekend soooo I sliced up some fresh strawberries and mint, added a little simple syrup & filled with Adult Limeade. I set our cocktails in the fridge for about 30 minutes & filled with ice to serve. It was the perfect ending to our weekend!

Adult Limeade pops

I made a few of these Adult Limeade pops for the weekend. They are perfect on these long hot weekends! I made red, white & blue for the holiday. To make, you simply mix 1/3 Adult Limeade, 1/3 limeade and 1/3 of your flavor choice. For red, I added cherry juice. For blue, I added blue curaƧao. And for white, I added sprite (which was my favorite). You pour them into Zipzicles bags & set them upright into freezer freeze. These are great to make a bunch ahead of time & they are ready to enjoy! I like to use a straw for mine but they can be enjoyed without one! What fun things are you making this weekend?

Ocotillo Master Bath Remodel Part II

We spent a lot of time on the tile design for this master bath shower. My client wanted something classic, timeless & elegant. I think we found the perfect design & when she saw it, she knew this was it!

Ocotillo master bath remodel

I love how my clients master bath remodel turned out! The mirrors, the tub, herringbone porcelain wood floors, travertine tile, marble countertops....I can go on & on. And most importantly, my clients are thrilled with the results! My client said "it makes me smile everytime I walk in". Best compliment ever!

Team Gifts

This season for our team gift, we (and by we I really mean my husband, who sent 50+ hours of video & audio editing) put together a highlight video of the Rebels spring season. We made it all to the way to the championship finals & came in 2nd. It was a tough loss for our boys & we wanted to remind them how great their season was despite the loss. It's a great gift & something that they can enjoy time & time again.

Cherry Pomegranate Margaritas

One of my favorite ways to make margaritas is in my ice cream maker. I can make them ahead of time before my guests arrive & it makes for any easy service. I made these yummy cherry pom margs with 1/2 cup cherry juice, 1/2 cup pomegranate juice, 2 cups limeade & 1 cup Adult Limeade. I also added a few ounces of simple syrup to sweeten. I poured it into the ice cream maker & 20 minutes later I had delicious frozen goodness! I store them in Tupperware in the freezer until I'm ready to serve! Happy Cinco de Mayo!
