My high school girlfriends and I try to get together every couple of weeks for some quality girl time. I wanted to host them at my place and couldn’t have been happier when I found out our Girls Night was going to be the one day blessed with 80 degree whether this week. So I put together a light greek inspired menu, set the table outside and chilled the wine… here was the menu:
Tzatziki with Pita
Here are some things making me happy right now:
This drink is the perfect evening cocktail for these warm spring evenings.
Strawberry Basil Bliss
1 1/2 oz Square One Basil
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz sparking wine or 1 1/2 oz club soda
1. Muddle strawberries.
2. Add remaining ingredients (except sparkling wine/club soda) and shake with ice.
I have “two drink options” from this point”
3a. Strain into a martini glass and top with sparkling wine.
3b. Strain into a low ball glass filled with crushed ice and top with club soda.
You can’t go wrong either way in my opinion… enjoy!
So I am like… a month late, but with Spring here (and the weather reflecting it), I have transitioned my wardrobe from Fall/Winter to Spring/Summer.
Due to lack of storage, during the winter I store my summer dresses/beach hats/shorts in the attic. Come the warmer months I swap that bin out for my larger knit sweaters/heavy pants/sweats. I also put my winter boots in a large container, and store my winter coats on a clothing rack in my garage (work with what ya got).
I also use this time to sort through (keep, donate, trash) my belongings and see if I can find them better homes.
Fun colored skirts!
Floral prints, linen, and bright colored short sleeve tops!
I was able to move my sweaters out and swim suits in!
I store my flats and hats in a small hanging organizer. I also have a hanging purse organizer that I tucked in the back to store my totes.
