Homegating is the New Tailgating / Tropic of Mule + Other Easy Gluten Free Football Watching Foods

The overabundance of merry making this time of year truly begins to saturate my every waking minute... yours too? I think a nice little reprieve for a day, to remind us of what life was like before the Holiday season began, is best filled with a return to America's favorite pastime and a bit of tried and true home-gating. After all homegating is the new tailgating, because when you can't get to the game... bring the game to your home and enjoy watching from the comfort of your couch! Maybe that gives you the perfect excuse for staying in pajamas all day and making merry in an altogether different sort of way! With some easy gluten free football watching food and the tastiest cocktail this side of the Mississippi, you can't lose - and maybe your team won't either! ... Read More

DIY // Headless Horseman Costume

DIY / Headless Horseman Costume

There is nothing I love more than a project that takes me so far out of my comfort zone that I literally stress for weeks, brainstorming and then scrapping most of my ideas. Probably sounds weird, but that process is often crucial for me to arrive at the magical spot that lives smack in the middle between awesome and simple. When my monthly challenge as a Michaels Maker rolled through with the ask being for us to create a costume, I seriously panicked because as many of you know - I don't do clothing... I can buy clothing with the best of them, but make or even embellish clothing - not my strong suit.

But I think I found that sweet spot because this costume is super easy to create and is equal parts spooky and adorable. It has the feel of the costumes from long ago without the complicated construction of those intricate paper maché masks. Yahoo for that... Read More
