I'm having fun working on a button crafting project! Can't wait to show you guys in a few weeks! Look at all these cute pink buttons I got! Stay tuned for the post showing what I made.
I'm happy to now have a pin it button showing on all my images. Hover over the top left side of the picture and you can easily pin it. As many of you know I love Pinterest for everything from recipes to inspiration for interiors. If you aren't already following me on Pinterest, you can follow me here!

A new favorite drink of mine is the pomegranate mojito. I enjoyed making these for some friends over New Years Eve. I started with this recipe and then adapted it to my taste. I cut the sugar in half and it is still plenty sweet for me. Sometimes I add a few more mint leaves or more club soda. You will figure out what you like! Here is my modified recipe:
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
12 mint leaves
6 tablespoons white rum
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup club soda
In a tall glass place the sugar, fresh squeezed lime juice and the mint leaves in the bottom. Use a muddler to mash up the mixture to release the flavors of the mint. Add the rum and pomegranate juice. I just used the bottled POM juice for mine. Fill the glass with lots of ice so you can keep this drink nice and cold. Top with club soda, I normally don’t measure this out and just do a little bit to fill it to the brim. Finish with a stir of the straw and sip away.
For those who don’t like pomegranate juice, omit the juice but add a bit more sugar, up to an extra half of a tablespoon, depending on your preference.
