Football Field Jelly Shots

Wasn’t sure this one was going to be possible but I think it came out well! Head on over to Tablespoon for the step by step recipe.


Sushi Jelly Shots

Boozy thai coconut milk, fruit roll ups and gummy fish. Doesn’t get much better than that. (Did I ever mention how I can’t eat just one fruit roll up? I heart Fruit by the Foot.)

Check out the easy recipe on Tablespoon! Happy almost Friday friends.


Life Lately: Weeks 15, 16 and 17

Gah! I was not that great at making sure I got these done every week when I was pregnant with Austin. I should have known it would be harder to write updates when I am also chasing around a toddler on top of a full time job. Better late than never though right?

How I’m Feeling

I feel good! But that is relative to how I was feeling for most of June and all of July which was terrible. The worst of my symptoms lately has been heartburn. I have to take Zantac as soon as I wake up and then again around dinner time. Otherwise it burns, oh it burns and it makes me feel nauseous again too.

I probably get up from my desk at work to pee every 20 mins. So that sucks but it’s not a huge deal.

This week in particular (week 17) I have been totally out of breath. Just talking to people at work makes me winded. I also got a little virus. I don’t know what it was but I had a fever on Monday and it was getting a little too close to 101 so I called my doctor. They had me take some tylenol cold and flu and rest. I was actually better by the next day. Phew.

But pretty much right now I feel good.


What I’m Eating

Spicy Bloody Mary Jelly Shots (in Real Tomatoes)

I made these for Tablespoon a few weeks ago. How cool are they? A boozy, spicy tomato. I have a similar shot in my book as well but I use little bite sized campari tomatoes.

Head on over and check out the easy recipe.


Raspberry and Sparkling Peach Sangria and Jello Shots!

I saw Halloween candy at the grocery store yesterday… (straight face)

Don’t get me wrong, I love fall, but it’s not time yet!

It’s still time to savor peaches and raspberries and summer sangria on the back deck.


I still need to take in more tiki torches, fireflies, and the smell of sunblock on Austin’s baby soft skin.
