MOH- Sunday

This summer I have the honor and privilege of being in two of my best friends weddings, both of which I happily accepted the title of Maid of Honor. Honestly I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I have been enjoying the fun of all the planning and duties that come a long with being in this role. Since their weddings are both two weeks apart towards the end of September I have said all along I would do the same for one as I do the other. So today, I spent my day working on shower stuff mainly creating shower invites in indesign, and addressing bachlorette invites. I realized half way in I should have opted for address labels instead of writing by hand but you live and you learn.

 Here is a sneak peak of one of my invites for one of the bridal showers I am hosting towards the end of June. We're a little late in the planning process, but it is all coming together nicely. Enjoy! :)

Thirsty Thursday- Mint Juleps

Big hats, gorgeous sun dresses, celebrities, and some of the most athletic race horses in the world. Nothing beats a day out at Churchill Downs like the Kentucky Derby. A few years back one of my girlfriends lived in Louisville and we got the opportunity to head out to the race track to catch a few races. I have loved horses all my life, so getting to see it first hand was super exciting for me.  With the derby on May 5th I thought i'd share the Kentucky Derby's signature cocktail the Mint Julep.

What you'll need:
2 cups water
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
32 ounces Kentucky bourbon (Makers Mark preferred)
8 springs fresh mint leaves (for garnish)

1. Combine water, sugar, mint leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat until sugar has completely dissolved. Allow syrup to cool for about an hour, to speed up the process I put it in the fridge. Pour syrup through a strainer to remove mint leaves.
2. Fill eight cups with ice and pour 4 ounces Makers Mark and 1/4 cup of the mint syrup in each.
3. Garnish with mint sprig and drink up! :)

Sunday Coffee

This weekend was far from relaxing, but it was great to spend the better part of this morning strolling around my downtown (even braving the 20 mph wind) with a Starbucks in tow after getting a much needed manicure.  I'm hoping this week will be less crazy while my boss is out of town, and I can actually catch up on my workload. Until then, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. 

Nail Color: Essie "A Crewed Interest." Such a perfect shade for spring.
