Monogrammed Sunnies

One of my favorite sale websites [GroopDealz.com] has the most adorable monogrammed sunnies on sale again today.



I purchased them for our honeymoon and am obsessed with mine! Great quality and super southern. Hurry, these always go quick! [This product has since been sold out - but a similar pair is available on one of my favorite sites, Design Darling here!]

Are you a monogrammed fanatic like I am?? What are your favorite flash sale websites?

Stock the Bar Party & Sangria Recipe

Even though my new hubby is obviously my roommate now, I think my college roommate Juliann will always be referred to as "my roommate." Well my roommate is getting married at the end of the month (EEEEKKK!) and some of the other bridesmaids and I wanted to host a couples shower for them.

I found these adorable invitations on Etsy and we had the party last weekend at Houston's and my new apartment.


Houston was such an enormous help getting ready, running errands for me, going to the grocery store, the list goes on and on! And I couldn't have done it without my sweet mother-in-law, Kristin, Fallon and Whitney's help too.


I made this yummy sangria recipe I found online and would highly recommend it! (I was nervous about making sangria for the first time for a lot of people, but my friends at work reassured me that you can't mess it up!) 


RECIPE:

1/2 cup granulated sugar
One can of Sprite 
Add the juice of 3-4 limes.  You can heat your limes in the microwave for about 20 seconds to help them let go of their juice.
Stir.
Add your sweet, white wine. I used  Pinot Grigio and pour the entire bottle.
Stir some more.
I used a white grape/peach juice blend.  Any brand is fine, just get one with no sugar added / 100% juice. Add a cup of your juice.
Stir again.
Now it's time to add your fruit. I used fresh strawberries and canned peaches (because they were out of fresh ones) but you can use fresh, frozen, or canned fruits - whatever works best for you!

Definitely let it sit for a few hours, I even made ours the night before so the flavors could soak in!


I'll post some party pictures soon!
