Happy Thanksgiving Eve, friends! Are y'all ready for the big day? We aren't quite there yet, but getting close! Last week I had the best date night with my husband. We had our date night dinner at Uni Sushi at Market Street in The Woodlands followed by Rhett Miller in concert at Dosey Doe!

We've been married for 9 years and a lot has happened in that time period : finished graduate school, started new jobs, fostered 5 babies, had biological twins, moved twice, etc, etc. At times the load of life just seems little overwhelming and we find ourselves needing to unplug from the world and . . .
Happy Friday, y'all! We hosted an adorable and oh-so fun Easter egg hunt recently and served this delicious Raspberry Pineapple Punch! It was a bit hit with the kiddos and adults alike! This is probably the simplest drink we have ever made and truly one of our favorites. We also learned that adding champagne to this punch is perfect for an adult version. We have served this punch at brunches, baby showers, and birthday parties and it's always a . . .

What better time to share one of our favorite cocktails? This delicious drink is the perfect combination of refreshing and sweet and the beautiful color of the Deep Eddy's Ruby Red Vodka screams Spring!
