Hi guys, I haven’t shared a cocktail in forever! (Seriously, it’s been over a year! Who am I?!)

I bought these melon balls months ago with the intention of making this sangria with them and then almost immediately lost them in my freezer. But my children have eaten through our stash of Hot Pockets and the melon balls have been found! 

I just love sangria, especially if I’m making drinks for more than a couple people. It’s a great way to stretch a bottle of wine and also not be making drinks one at a time all night long. 

This Melon Ball Sangria is one of my favorites for summer. You have to try it!

Hey guys, happy Friday! How was your week? Are you also depressed that there was no Bachelorette this week?

Anyway, my mom came in yesterday!

Kicked that off by realizing that the Jeep had a flat tire minutes before I needed to leave for the airport to get her. Luckily the boyfriend was here and got it changed for me because otherwise?

I would’ve sat in my driveway and cried.

I haven’t seen my mom in almost a year – crazy, right? I mean, we talk pretty much every day of our lives but still.

Of course the boys started begging to go to the lake as soon as she stepped off the plane so we ended up spending a couple hours floating around.

Pear Cider Sangria - the perfect fall drink! Just 4 ingredients and so delicious!

Happy Halloween!

Are you dressing up today? Tell me you are and tell me how cute you’re going to be.

I, as you know, still haven’t put out my Halloween decorations so you know I didn’t get a costume. I will put cat ears on and call it a done. But first I have to go searching through my shed to find the bin that contains the cat ears.

I’m so unprepared for the holidays. At 11 pm last night I was digging through my kids’ backpacks to see if there were notes about Halloween parties and if I needed to send anything.

I did buy lots of candy though. And I thought I was being smart by not buying any bags with Almond Joys because you know I can’t control myself around them.

But then I ate all the Baby Ruths.

Help me.

Hi guys! Happy almost Friday!

I’ve been having a thing with sangria recently. I think I’ve made more sangria since we moved to Texas than I’ve made in the last 5 years. I’m blaming the heat.

Speaking of the heat, it’s the middle of October. Why is it still 100 degrees? I don’t like it and I need it to change immediately. There are sweaters that need to be worn.

This Pear Pomegranate Sangria is definitely my favorite for fall. The pears have been so good lately and I just couldn’t resist throwing them in some wine with pomegranate juice and brandy. You could totally add in some pomegranate arils too but I just don’t dig them in sangria.

If you are the kind of person that requires a drink or 4 on Thanksgiving (are there really people who don’t?), this is it! Prep it the night before and it’ll be ready to go as soon as the crazy relatives start showing up.
