So Lovely Feature

1 Oct

I was thrilled today when I got a message in my inbox that an item from The Atomic Squirrel had been featured on Oh So Lovely Vintage’s blog. Today’s post was about vintage bar ware! TONS of retro eye candy. If you’ve never checked out their site, you should. These vintage loving gal’s have good taste, clearly they picked one of my items.

So I stumbled upon some old drink recipes and found a new favorite. I love playing hostess and part of that is having a handful of recipes that you know by heart and are quick to make. I made some changes from the original and thought I’d share this great drink with you!

I’m pretty sure this will be my go-to cocktail for summer get togethers from now on. It’s so easy to make. I hope you enjoy it. If you try it be sure to let me know what you think.

Cheers!

Weekend catch up

29 Mar

Saturday I got to celebrate my birthday with my best of friends in The Tri! We had a great time…unfortunately, I once again, forgot my camera. We had dinner at Texas Roadhouse. Their “Hot and Bleu salad” is fantastic! After dinner we went to a nifty little bar to chill and meet up with some other friends who didn’t show until after Thomas and I left. I got lots of cards from friends and family, all of which made me smile 🙂 and I’m pretty sure I got the best present that I could ever get, too.

I have been SO sleepy for the past couple of days. I hope I can get rested up, but I’m not sure how. Sleep? Hasn’t been working, but I’ll give it another go later. Maybe it’s just stress. Between my car being messed up and in the shop and letting some people be a more powerful outside force than I had realized, I think I’m a bit overwhelmed. Perhaps I should disengage for a few days. I already know that there are some things/people that I will have to purge from my life in order to focus on my own needs. I’m sure that sounds selfish, but I can’t enjoy the positive within my life if they are projecting their negativity on me. I just don’t understand why some people feel the need to blame others, rather than accept and move on.

With that said…

I went a couple of weeks ago to see Avatar. That was an amazingly beautiful movie. Beyond just the graphics, 3D has come so far. Wow! I really want to go see “How to Train Your Dragon” (in 3D). It’s going to be so cute!

I hope everyone has a great week! ❤
