Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo friends! Our community happens to have THE best Mexican restaurant ever (which is also my favorite food ever..like EVER) so of course we celebrate! This year though with Ava still recovering from her surgery we decided to bring the food home.  So after some house hunting this afternoon I called in and placed our order that we picked up on the way home.  (and they even made some Mac and cheese for Miss Ava.  Win Win)

Obviously bringing the food home meant I would need to mix up some cocktails! I've shared before my low calorie classic lime margarita so along with that today I'll share two more fun options!

 (I've also directly linked my Metal Bar Stools Set of 2  since you guys always ask me about them when we eat at the bar!) How cute are the little Corona vests?! They gave them to us a few years ago on Cinco de Mayo! 






Low Calorie Classic Margarita
-4oz Sparkling ICE in Lemon Lime
-1 1/2 ounces of favorite Tequila
-1 fresh squeezed Lime
-Fresh squeezed orange juice (to your taste)
 Shake it all up with some ice, pour into a salt rimmed glass and add a slice of lime for garnish


Pink Lemonade Margarita
-1 can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate
-12 ounces of cold water

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!   To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white. 1. Drizzle 2. Sterling 3. Halation These three options are als

The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.   (You can also check out all the dazzling silver trees Treetopia offers by clicking  HERE

Backyard Entertaining Project

DISCLAIMER: This post is sponsored by Home Depot.  All opinions are my own.  Thank you to Home Depot for sponsoring this post.  Post contains affiliate links.     Spring has sprung and this girl is ready for outdoor entertaining and spending evenings under the stars! I know you all have seen our backyard for a couple years now and probably thought we were finished with it.  Well truth is during the daylight hours all is well...but after sunset we could really only entertain and hang out with friends inside the screened lanai where we have market lights strung.  The pool lighting helps a little but my conversation seating located by the fireplace gets SO dark! I tried lanterns, candles, allll the things and it is just too dark to sit and entertain with friends.       At first Elton and I discussed adding a structure.  Possibly a pergola or gazebo but unfortunately my communities HOA did not allow it.  That's when we decided to add som
