4th of July with Dixie Southern Vodka

We had a little added bonus to our traditional family pool day/crab boil to celebrate the 4th of July this year. Dixie Southern Vodka sent us a bottle of their Black Pepper Vodka to try along with their recipe for Crawdaddy Pinchers. I was excited to try their vodka for a few reasons. Vodka is our preferred drink in general but Dixie Southern Vodka is a craft vodka made in Charleston, SC, where my father’s family is from. I love...

Coastal Tablescape for Father’s Day

In case you’ve missed it, I’m a little obsessive when it comes to coastal decor. I get all sorts of giddy when I see my kind of coastal stuff, as evidenced by my favorite Pinterest board, Mostly Coastal for the Home.

Hiding Christmas Gifts with Ikea

Hello again! I’ve been a little out of pocket over the past few months due the passing of my amazing grandfather, my husband’s unexpected hospitalization, me being ridiculously sick for a few weeks (I swear I caught Ebola and MRSA from the hospital #iknowiknow #buttotallypossiblewithme), and then back to the hospital with the hubs. When it rains, it pours around here. I’m trying to ease back into a normal schedule...
