It's Remodel Time Again!!

Hi guys! There have been lots of exciting things going on keeping us busy, busy, busy.

With the bathroom remodels complete we have moved on to.................(dramatic DUM DUM DUM intro music).........our kitchen and living room.

This is a before pic to give you a fair idea of what we're up against.

We will be changing out the cabinets, floors and windows, taking out walls, and enclosing a lanai (which will give us a bigger living room area).

Here is a pic of the demo we've done so far.

We are doing most of the work ourselves. Which means the bf is doing most of the labor and I am in charge of buying everything we need and keeping everything on schedule. Yikes!!

At this point, all of the cabinets are empty and we are living out of boxes. All of our food and dishes are boxed up and randomly strewn around our mess of a kitchen/dining area.
I am sending my kids to summer fun everyday with enough snacks to feed an army in a feeble attempt to get rid of some of this damn food, lol!
Our plan is to have the kitchen completely empty and bare by next week. That is when our contractor will come to add more crazy, disorganized madness to our lives. Yay (sarcasm @ its finest)!
But, I know, deep deep deep down in my heart, that it will all be over soon........I hope!

Under construction,

Cinco De Mayo= MARGARITAS!!

Ooooh, how I love a good margarita!!

When I'm @ home, I'll stick to a traditional, on the rocks, margie. But when I go out, I like to have blended, flavored (strawberry or mango) ones.

And yet, there are so many other things in life that capture the yummy essence of a good margarita..........

These are a margarita inspired pair of earrings from my Zaia jewelry collection.

They are made of painted light green wood flower focals and coral swarovski crystallized pearls.
And remember: all Zaia earrings are hypoallergenic :)

Next on the margarita inspired list, we have a beautiful photo that I would love to hang in my dressing room/walk in closet- if I had one, lol.

After a long, hard day @ work, I can see myself sitting on my stiletto stool, taking off my heels of the day, breathing a sigh of relief, and smiling at the thought of a summer picnic with friends, and an ice cold margarita in my hand.

Dress attire:casual.............

I love this shirt! I would totally buy this for my mom, who is a fellow margaritaholic, but I would change the shirt color to magenta, to make it more girlie.
Luv u mom!!

So I did a post a while ago and one of the items I featured was a "cake pop". Basically it's a single serving of cake on a stick that looks uber cool and chic.
And even though I have yet to actually have one.............I am in love with them.

Which is why I have just about died and gone to heaven with these margarita flavored (and yes they have alcohol) cake pops. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!

This is definetely on my "to order" list!! Not only are they super cute, they are sure to be super duper yummy!!

And if you haven't got enough margarita running through your system can always go home and smell like you a good way ;)

Margarita conditioner!! Is that with or without a salt rim?

Just joking!

I love the packaging! Super cute! This is one of those "perfect gift" items that your friends are sure to love!

To finding your perfect drink,
