Friday Happy Hour: Valentine's Edition

So I've decided to bring back "Happy Hour" on Friday's and post my favorite links, images and posts of the week but I'm not sure if this is going to be a weekly thing or every other week. We'll see how it goes. As I said earlier in the week, we've been on the hunt for new digs and we finally found a place we ALL liked and will be moving in approximately 14 days. Yep. 14 days. And I've only gotten 11 boxes packed so far. Who's awesome? This, girl. So while my OCD has been sent into hyperdrive, my procrastination is also in full effect. #timesbeingageminisucks
But whatever, it will all come together right?

In other news, I don't know if I shared on here but I recently became a contributing writer for MommyNoire! I'm so excited! There's something really awesome about seeing your byline on another site and knowing your words are reaching a whole new audience! I hope you'll take a moment to head over and check out my other work!
Here are a few of my latest posts over there:

Around C2C: 
In case you missed it this week I talked about getting dressed daily and did a 'style post' of sorts all from my cell phone/ IG images. It's really the best way to capture my everyday way of dress.
I also talked about my increasing love for kimono's, where and how I plan to wear them from now until eternity.

Around the web

Libation: We all know I love Instagram with a passion. One of the reasons I love it is because I am able to fall down the rabbit hole and discover people I may not have otherwise. Take Suburban Bitches for example while I didn't end up going to Alt Summit this year I was happily perusing the hashtag and stumbled across their account and thusly their blog. I cracked up at their IG name and then fell in love with their blog. These ladies are all the things I like completely real, ridiculously sassy and wicked creative.  In their own words:

Two ladies (aka "bitches") taking their suburban homes from cookie-cutter to fab. All while raising 6 kids and maintaining their social drinking problems!

Hell yeah. I'm all about it. So when they posted a most delicious looking libation I immediately asked if they minded if I shared on here (it's also what got me excited to bring back Happy Hour)

Blood orange pomegranate martinis
Makes two drinks
1 cup blood orange juice (from about 3 oranges
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
generous 1/4 cup of vodka (I used whipped vodka but regular would work too, just would be less sweet)
Mix all the ingredients with some ice in a shaker. Shake it up and serve. I dipped my glasses in some red sugar on the rim to make it festive. Totally don’t need to get that fancy though. Enjoy with those that you love!
This makes me want to run out to Sprouts and scoop up some blood oranges right now! I think I may have to make these this weekend for my lover! Bottoms up!!

Any fun Valentine's Day plans? We're keeping it super low key since we'll be moving shortly but we may sneak away for a late dessert Saturday evening. We'll see.

Have a lovely weekend and see you back here on Monday!
