Shakoolie, For Shower Beers

Shakoolie Americans for shower beers.jpg

Hi Lovelies!

There is nothing worse than working your butt off in your backyard on a Saturday afternoon, hoping into the shower to wash yourself off, and having your shower beer get all hot in the process. Not to mention getting water in it or knocking it off the corner of the tub. Well, so says my husband.:) Wes is a beer man. He loves his craft beer. Well, he loves any beer, but especially craft beer. The man has always sworn that a shower beer is the best way to relax in the shower before a night out, or after a hard days work. He has also sworn multiple times while in the shower and having his beer get ruined. Well, fear not my beer loving friends! Today I bring you one of the coolest inventions ever, the Shakoolie. The Shakoolie is made by some pretty cool guys who had the same issue my hubby does.

The Shakoolie keeps your beer safe, cold, and within reach! I mean look at that beer down there, it would have surely fallen off of that tiny little shelf that has been taken over by my hair products. And let’s be honest, it’s not just for beer or men… I am a huge fan of mini wine bottles and wine coolers (yes, I know, I’m still in college), which also fit perfectly in the little Shakoolie koozie. Not a lot of time to both get ready and have a glass of wine? Now you can do both without risking your precious wine in the process.
No room for my shower beer

Easy Strawberries With Angel Food Cake

Strawberries with Angel Food Cake

Hi Lovelies!

Doesn’t that look fantastic?! Angel food cake is one of those things that I could probably eat in its entirety within just a few days. Not that I’ve done that before or anything…haha:) And those strawberries…YUM! This dessert is fantastic not just because of the ingredients, but because it fulfills multiple cravings at one time. You need something a little fruity and tangy? Check! Need a little chocolate? Check! Need some light fluffy cake? Check! Oh, just go make it already!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups egg whites
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar

Angel Food Cake with StrawberriesDirections:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk the egg whites until they are foamy. Once foamy, add the cream of tartar, vanilla extract, and almond extract.
  3. Sift together flour, sugar, and salt. Repeat five times.
  4. Gently combine the egg whites with the dry ingredients by folding the dry ingredients in slowly with a spatula.
  5. Pour into an ungreased 10 inch tube pan.
  6. Cook for about 35-40 minutes, or until cake is golden brown.
  7. Let the cake cool upside down on a cooling rack. When the cake is cooled, remove it from the pan.
  8. Enjoy!

You could also go buy a box of angel food cake mix or even a pre-made one in the bakery section of your grocery store. Whichever way you choose to make it, let me know how it turns out!

Calm & Carefree

Sundress with a fedora

Hi Lovelies!

The weekend just went by way too quickly. We got lots of housework done, including a little bit of painting, and had a great Sunday Funday at Top Golf…but it never seems like quite enough. Oh how I yearn for those days as a child when you had no responsibilities! <sigh> Welcome to adulthood. At least today’s pictures look carefree, right? Feeding the swans and geese on the lake in paradise:)

I swear I say this every other day, but I change my mind every time I put on a new outfit…..this outfit is one of my new favorites. This dress has been one of my most worthwhile purchases in a long time. I swear I put this dress on once a week with the intention of wearing it and sometimes have to talk myself down and into one of my other million pieces.

I wore this little number when we were up in Michigan, the day I bought my little Michael Kors crossbody, which I am pretty much obsessed with. I wanted a pink handbag and I wanted something to match my magenta Kendra Scott Rayne necklace. Well, these two were MEANT TO BE. The colors are identical and I can’t stop wearing either of them, especially together! The magenta and cobalt combo is a new find too…I pretty much love any bold, bright colors mix and matched together these days. Gotta love summer!

Oh, and for those of you who are flamingo obsessed like me, I thought I would point out that my ring is a little pink flamingo. I know, i needed it:)

Pineapples: Splurge Vs. Steal

Pineapple Splurge Vs Steal

 

Hi Lovelies!

I am so excited that it’s almost the weekend again! I have been anxiously awaiting this weekend for one reason. We are doing nothing. That’s right, absolutely nothing. I am in such need of a relaxing weekend since the last 4 have been nothing but busy busy busy!

I have not indulged myself in the pineapple trend yet, but I have been scoping it out for a while. Today I thought I would share what has been on my list of things I might decide I need:)  I don’t know about you, but I will be looking in that steal column on the right. In my mind, there is no reason to splurge on items that are trendy and won’t necessarily be in style next season/year. Now, I know pineapples will never be “out of style”, but they aren’t worth $143 to me…that’s just how it is.

What’s the most recent trend you’ve been dying to try?

The Best Place On Earth

Hi Lovelies!

It has already been over a week since we got back from our Michigan vacation. It feels like yesterday and it makes me so sad that we won’t be back for another year. Well, we may be in Michigan before then, but we won’t be up north on the lake:( Today’s photos are from the family reunion, the one above is of me and my cousin, Stephanie. It’s her birthday today! (Happy Birthday, Steph!)

Wes and our brother in law, Chris. Yes, my husband is wearing a storm trooper shirt. Yes, it is on a pink surf board. Yes, it is a tank top. You can thank our friend Bryan who kidnapped us for 3 days with no extra clothing. You can also thank Walmart.

Best friends.

It really is the most beautiful place I have seen and I wait anxiously every single year for the summer to come so that I can lay on the beach and read, watch the sunset, and get ice cream at the local ice cream shop. <sigh> Only 352 (or so) more days to go until next year!
