Homemade Firefly

I made some homemade firefly for the farm and everyone Dan loved it! It was really easy too! 

What you need:
  • Vodka (the more, the better right?)
  • 2-3 tea bags
  • Sugar 
  • Water
How to do it:

  • Steep the tea bags in vodka for about 30 min-hour
  • Make 2 cups simple syrup by heating 2 cups of sugar into 2 cups of water. Heat until the sugar melts (the person who gets the last drink appreciates this step)
  • Add simple syrup to the vodka. 
  • Add water to taste. side note: I added all of my vodka to an cleaned out milk jug for an easier transport. I ended up adding probably 3 cups of water to it and it was still VERY strong. People were feeling a little too good off of the "milk" (that's what Dan dubbed it after quite a few "pulls")

In other ramblings....


I can not wait for the Olympics to start tonight. I LOVE the summer Olympics and happen to really love London The Royal Family, so its sure to be a perfect few weeks. If we still had living room furniture, (that's a whole other story) I would love to host an opening ceremony party.... maybe in 4 years. 

Bright and early tomorrow morning, I am heading home for a week of wedding planning and my 2 bridal showers. I am SO excited to get there already!

House Update

We are about 2 1/2 weeks out from the house being completed. I am slightly devastated, when we went by last night, locks were on the doors. I don't know how I am going to contain myself if they lock it and we can't walk through. Cabinets were delivered last night and I can not wait to see them! 



Living room- Sherwin Williams "perfect greige"The paint appeared more gray on the chip but I think I will be happy with it once the granite goes in since it is more brown/gold based.

 master bedroom paint Sherwin William "Silvermist". Also a little more green than I thought. Clearly picking out paint isn't my thing.

blessed savior- thank you for the fan outside. a.) its extremely hot b.) the bugs are horrible! That electrical outlet up top is for the TV that will display football games so that fan is a necessity!

Fun at the Farm

I may not be feeling 100% quite yet but I do know that we all had an absolute blast this past weekend. Here's a few pictures from the trip. We did it all from cooked to fished to skeet shooting (which I did in fact FINALLY get one) to joy rides under the stars.

good weekend with good friends.

What we've been up to

Ive been a little MIA lately.... not too much going on over here. Had a wonderful 4th of July, a great weekend and halfway there to another weekend. Here's our random happenings in pictures

watched these two beautiful people celebrate an amazing wedding

and was surrounded by amazing company. 

gathered the troops for the 4th of July

ate, drank, danced

 and saw double by the end of the evening day.

Purchased this and then celebrated that evening (welcome to adulthood)


and swooned over this. like seriously, swooned. She's comfortable too.... it even passed Dan's couch test (you have a better chance getting into the CIA than a couch passing the test).  I think its meant to be. He is convinced that furniture is 100% negotiable. He's on his own on that one.

Happy 4th of July to all of you out there... I hope its filled with fireworks, barbeques and good company.

A Day At The Beach

Saturday we headed to one of the smaller beaches close to home. The 2 perks about this beach are 1.) its only 45 minutes away and 2.) its dog friendly! Its no Destin but its still a fun outing and a good way to beat the heat!

I came across this picture on a friend's Instagram and wanted to share. Sometimes we all need a little perspective.
