Let’s Be Real, Milkshakes are ALWAYS a Good Idea! 

Growing up, milkshakes were one of those things we rarely had, but when we did it was a BIG DEAL, and always initiated by my dad. I have a soft spot in my heart for a good ole’ fashioned milkshake, so I thought it would be fun to whip up a milkshake with a twist for you today!

Brunching With The Best!

Today I am so excited to share with you a peek at our Team ABD Brunch from last week. To say it was one of my favorite days would be a complete understatement. I love these girls so much, how hard they work, and how much they believe in the heart behind ABD. It was so amazing to have them all in our home to shower them with love and champagne.

On top of the brunch I spill all the details on Draper James’ new Brunch Collection, where to get wholesale Flowers in Central Florida, & more. Enjoy!

Lovely Finds: Recipes and Meal Planning Talk

Recipe ingredients on the countertop

 

Let’s get cookin’! 

Okay, real talk for a minute… I have been totally slacking in the kitchen lately. Like reallllllly slacking. I love to cook (usually) but recently I haven’t gotten around to it. I could give you all of my excuses for not cooking, which are good ones… like working from 7am – 9pm, traveling, and lack of inspiration. But let’s be honest, that never stopped me before!
 
So in efforts to fix this problem I’ve been doing some Pinteresting…  here are a few new recipes I’ve pinned that are on my Summer Dinner list…Let me know what you think!
 
P.S. I’ve got several Pinterest boards dedicated to all things in the kitchen, so check ’em out inside!

WHAT’S NEW IN MY CLOSET: Blush Peplum Top

Styling this Blush Peplum Blouse

Let’s take a peak!

A couple weeks ago I showed you a peek in my closet and a few new things that I had recently added and couldn’t wait to wear! So, today I am doing it again. I love going in my sister’s and girlfriend’s closets to see what all they have in there and how they are making their pieces “work”! It’s kind of like looking in a friend’s refrigerator and panty and discovering new snacks that you never thought to buy (… just me?! okay I digress…)! Anyway, consider this kind of like that, a peek at something new I just bought and how I am planning on dressing it up and down!

The Rolling Coffee Party

(Featuring Courtney from Pizzazzerie!)

Friends, I am so excited to introduce you to our 3rd feature in our new series called “My ABD” today. We are going to be interviewing a few of our favorite gal pals to see how they are using their ABD! And today we have Courtney from Pizzazzerie!

Courtney is not only a good friend of mine, but she is INCREDIBLY talented! I’m going to be real with you, I think Pinterest was invented just so it could house Courtney’s work. Her food/party styling is just magical… and not to mention the tiny tea parties she throws for her little girl, Blakely!  

Courtney is like Martha Stewart on crack and today, she’s taking over ABD! Read on, friends!

The Prettiest Place We’ve Ever Been…

On Thursday morning we packed our bags and caught a flight to Aruba! To be completely honest with you, I had no idea what to expect, other than the beach. And for a person who lives in Florida, the beach can sometimes be, you know, just the beach… but I’m going to be real with you, this place was unlike anything I have ever seen! We’ve been to the Caribbean before, but never this far South, and friends, it was heaven.
