It’s been an extremely busy month so far! With my birthday, followed by my ugly sweater party, followed by a spontaneous BIG trip that I booked! Here’s a quick photo recap of what’s been going on! These guilt-free eggnog pudding shots were a hit! Here’s the recipe, and you can easily switch it up for different occasions by using different flavors of pudding mix, and different Bailey’s flavors instead of eggnog! 1 packet sugar-free vanilla pudding 1 cup Silk “Holiday Nog” (or any light Egg Nog) 1 cup Pinnacle Marshmallow Vodka (or you can use the Whipped flavor) 1 tub Light Cool Whip Mix all together until smooth. Fill plastic shot cups. I chilled them overnight. Top with a dollop of whipped cream – I garnished with red sugar crystals but would also be great with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve! (Makes about 25-30 shots depending on the size of the cups) It’s…

Labor Day weekend is here! The sun is shining here in Florida, and I’ll be kicking off the long weekend with happy hour with friends this evening!

Here are some great sales I’ve spotted so far: OLD NAVY NORDSTROM MACY’S: Shop through this link and get an additional 20% off with code: DEALS I’ll be sharing any Labor Day sale finds on the blog next week.

Thanks to Marsha at Pretzel Crisps (who I met at one of the Central Florida Lady Blogger Meetups, which I posted about here), last weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Seminole Hard Rock Wine and Food Festival in South Florida! My tickets included access to the festival an hour early, and access to the VIP lounges, including the Pretzel Crisps suite!I attended this a couple of years ago with some friends, and had an amazing time, so I was super excited to get the chance to go again! With your ticket, you get unlimited food tastings and drinks (it’s SO worth it!). There are a variety of South Florida based restaurants there, giving out (generous) samples, and over 100 vendors giving (generous) pours of wine, champagne, vodka, rum, tequila, beer, and more.Here are some of my highlights that I managed to snap in between my bites and sips!
