One thing you learn when you move to Kentucky is to never call a Bourbon “whiskey”…blasphemy I say! What is the difference between whiskey and bourbon you ask??? Here is a little lesson for those of you who have never lived in Kentucky and are unaware of this fact. You can only call a particular alcohol Bourbon if it was made in the state of Kentucky. Bourbon is basically a whiskey that has been fermented in barrels for a specific amount of time. Bourbon typically has a much sweeter taste than some of your other whiskeys…much smoother that those say… made in say “Tennessee”;) Similar to how you really should not call a sparkling wine “Champagne” unless it came directly from the region in France. When you live in Kentucky you take this Kentucky Proud product of Bourbon very seriously. I thought that for my second post for the Kentucky Derby I would create a yummy brunch recipe that calls for a wee bit of the “brown water” as we call it here in the Bluegrass….
Hey hey….Derby week here in the Bluegrass!! Busy week for sure…I am going to share with you a yummy Derby brunch recipe this week that features a Kentucky proud product (starts with a B and ends with OURBON:) Editing those pics now…. Hope you are having a great start to the week…
I told you last week that I am working on putting together a few decorations for my nephew’s high school graduation party graduation. It has been fun dreaming up and creating some unique features for his celebration. So is was perfect timing when my friends at Martha Stewart sent me a fun package and invited me to create a craft to use for a party this season.
Happy Friday yall!! I haven’t had much writing time this week….Derby is fast approaching and I have been whippin up some last minute clutch purses:) I’m excited to go out with some girlfriends tonight…it has been awhile! We are going to see Sixteen Candles (80’s band)….have you heard of them? Should be a good time…wearing my dancin shoes;)
Today I wanted to share with you an easy crafting project. My friends at Folgers asked me to come up with an inspiring coffee idea. I love me some coffee. It is how I start my day..everyday. I only need one cup….but I really need that one cup:) Good thing it is good for you….cause I am NOT giving up that one cup:)
My friends at the Kentucky Derby challenged me to come up with a fun way to celebrate Derby no matter where you live and I thought that this Kentucky Derby fascinator could be made quick and on the cheap for all your Derby parties. If you don’t have a derby party to go to… no sweat… Just make one and hang out with the family and watch the greatest two minutes in sports at your house.
Hey yall…Happy Monday:) Full steam ahead into the end of the school year…my kids only have about 24ish days of school left. Crazy to me! I must admit that I am looking forward to summer and a slower pace (hopefully.) I met with Ethan Allen last week at our showhouse for this year’s Homearama. I am really excited about working with them…this home will be a showcase for sure!
So today….I thought…let’s be frank…can we be frank? Do you have facial hair? I feel like the girth of hair that I once had on my eye lashes…has slowly made it’s way to transplanting itself on my chin and upper lip…just me? A few years back…I started noticing this…and I set out to find a good option for dealing with it. Here are my thoughts on this fun subject…..
I do this…do you? Have been for years….makes your skin literally glow—and it is basically free:) These single blade razors are all you need (bic also sells a thin single blade razor you can find in your drug store.)
