Thanksgiving Cocktails

Happy {almost} Thanksgiving, loves! Since we’re both *not quite* adult enough to truly host a big Thanksgiving meal (apartment vs. house being the biggest factor), we aren’t usually asked to bring much – but we can make a mean cocktail, so that will be our contribution! Warm and fuzzy is our goal for a Thanksgiving cocktail, and these 4 drinks will do just that! Cheers to a wonderful visit with friends and family during the start to the holiday season. xo

Wowie, how is it already mid September?! The days just fly by! Christa has another busy weekend, with her sold out CADC Aaron Draplin event that she’s been waiting months for! And Reg is taking it easy spending time with a couple of friends who have had a rough go at things lately, unwinding and consoling with morning brunch and evening veno.

Have a great weekend, all!

TGIF! This weekend is going to be jam-packed-fun because Christa’s boyfriend Curtis is turning 30 on Monday (🎉), and special plans have been made 🙂 They’re still secret, but keep an eye out on instagram for fun pics!

Hey all, whatchya got going on this weekend? We’re embracing these last few weeks of winter with a little r&r, and feel pretty shameless about it. Christa has a couple low-key birthday get-togethers, while Reg will be found watching movies on the couch under mountains of blankies (shocking).

Have a beautiful weekend 🙂

Hope you all get a chance to enjoy these next couple of days, see you on Monday!
