Some girls dream of boys or shoes or diamonds. I dream of power tools. I have serious, serious issues. Hear me out though. We’re all obsessed with Pinterest and the stuff that people make on their is amazing. So I’ve been narrowing down why can’t be as crafty as they are and I think I’ve found my answer. I need power tools. Ok, so yes, I also need free time and patience and follow through but those things will come dammit! In the meantime, I think this might solve at least some of my problems. Anyone have one already?

Think of all the crap I could make with this??? I’m getting all excited just thinking of it!! I know, I’m lame. I’ll excuse myself now.


First off, Happy Friday. Congrats on surviving the week.  Second, we need a new cocktail and man, have I got one for you. Third, I’m in L-O-V-E with this blog Spoon Fork Bacon. It’s pretty much perfect in every way. Now, on with the booze…

Kiwi Capiroska is like a Caipirinha. Both are Brazilian. Since the hubs is Brazilian we have to represent in my house. This is the perfect drink to send summer off with a big, wet kiss.

Cheers, lovlies.
