Hey hey lovelies! How’s everyone’s Monday so far? I hope you all had a great weekend and you did something fun and exciting. This weekend was spent helping our 5th grader with his science project. He had to make a model of his own country and of course, any project that comes home is for the parents as well. That’s just how it is. I have to say though that it was fun letting all my creative juices flow. Sometimes we need that to break up the monotony so no complaints there!

I’ve wanted to share this outfit for a while now and I’m finally getting to it. This “top” that I’m wearing, and I say top in quotes because it looks like a dress on me, was sent to me from Sammy Dress. I was able to pick out a few things from the site and since I knew that Thanksgiving was coming up, I wanted to pick something where I could stuff my belly and no one would be the wiser that there was a sizable pouch forming underneath the layer. I mean, how perfect is this top though? I’ve got so much room to just let it all hang out. The top is a “one size fits all” and I knew from past experiences that it was going to be huge on me but I couldn’t help myself, I love over-sized sweaters! So far, I’ve had good experiences with the clothing from this retailer so if you’re looking for inexpensive trendy pieces, they’re a reasonable place to start. I’ve linked the top here and to check out Sammy Dress’ site, click on the link here. Everything else is linked above.
Before I move on, let me tell you about this hat. I think I probably sang “hallelujah” out loud when I found it. Now, I’ve been looking far and wide for a hat to fit my noggin, not because of the amount of hair I have but something that would suit my face. I’ve tried every type of hat under the sun from H&M, Forever 21 and Target. I even have a hat in my closet that I’ve never worn (any takers?). Then along comes this hat that I found by chance at the last minute. We were in Target shopping for clothes for the kids and while my hubby and the kids were at the checkout, I quickly ran over to the hat section and boom, the first hat I laid my hands on was the one that went home with me. Now if that isn’t fate, I don’t know what it is. It may not seem like a big deal but it really is. I’ve been searching ya’ll, for at least two years now. How sad is that? Lol. Anyway, I’m so happy with this one and my search has finally come to an end. Amen to that!
I also wanted to share an easy holiday cocktail recipe with you all so please keep reading.
Moscow Mule recipe
*Intended for audiences 21 years of age and up.
Want a perfect holiday cocktail? Try a Moscow Mule. I’ve only recently started to drink them and once I found out that ginger beer is the main ingredient, I was sold. The one thing that I like about these drinks is that you can try different variations and make it your own.
Moscow Mule Recipe
What you’ll need:
A cute copper mug (no, not really. Any mug/glass will do.)
1.5 oz. vodka (I used Pinnacle)
3 oz. ginger beer (watch for sugar content in the one you choose)
¼ oz. lime juice
1 sprig mint
1 slice lime
1/4lb fresh cherries
2 oz. Dole frozen cherries, juiced or cherry juice
In a glass or mug with ice, add vodka, cherry juice, and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with mint sprig, cherries and lime slice.
That’s it. Pretty simple, right? Enjoy!
