Plaid Jacket

Today's post is all about plaid.  Plaid is at the top of my list of fall/winter prints, but why post about it now?  Becauseeee all of the great plaid pieces are on sale! It's that time of year where retailers are clearing through all of the fall merchandise to make room for spring.  Just because the stores are telling us to think spring doesn't mean the weather is. In most regions it's still plenty cold to get a few months out of plaid.  I paired my plaid jacket with a tonal animal print top and dark wash denim.

Chobani Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Dip

Starting the weekend off right with this protein packed breakfast! 16 grams of protein never looked so good. 

1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (you decide!)
1 green apple, sliced

Combine first 3 ingredients until smooth.  Sprinkle cinnamon on top and serve with a sliced apple to dip in.

Blood Orange Margarita

Perfect for your next Mexican fiesta or cocktail party!

2 ounces silver tequila
4 ounces blood orange juice
1 teaspoon agave nectar
squeeze of a lime
salt/sugar for rim

Add first 4 ingredients to a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake for about 20 seconds. Next, mix a little salt and sugar in a shallow dish, wet the rim of a martini glass and roll in the sugar/salt mixer.  Pour your drink into the glass and enjoy!

If your local grocery store doesn't carry blood orange juice go ahead and mix equal parts fresh squeezed orange juice and grapefruit juice in place of the blood orange juice.

Our Wedding!

Looking back at 2014 all I can remember is wedding bells.  Eric and I tied the knot on November 8th and had the best time doing it!   The year leading up to becoming a Mrs. was a whirlwind, but filled with love and lifelong memories. We couldn't be happier!
Here are some pictures from our special day.  

All photos were taken by our amazing photographers, Leo & Jenny Photography.  I'll continue to post about the vendors we worked with throughout the year for all of you future Milwaukee Brides!
