5 on Friday

ONE.  I am looking for the perfect, easy and delicious recipe for a white (or light colored) Sangria.  I have been looking around pinterest, found a few with lots of fruit, which I think is great, but I need to know measurements and how much.  Any ideas??  Also, do you put the ice in it if it's going to be sitting for an afternoon?

TWO.  One of my favorite ladies who I have met through blogging is Natasha from Hello Happiness (most of you know who she is - she hosts this link up!) - if you haven't heard, she started her own children's clothing store, Sugar Bit.  So many adorable options for babies, tots, and kids!  I am eyeing the swimsuits for Andie :)

THREE.  TL and I just recently starting buying organic coconut oil from Costco to cook our veggies with.  I was searching around on Pinterest and found this pin that has some great info about multiple uses for Coconut oil... so awesome (especially the diaper rash and dry skin)!

FOUR.  I am not a huge one for subscription boxes - but I recently came across one that is pretty cool.  It's a traveling box that explores unique (lots of vegan) things - it travels around the country and finds vendors to feature.  They do mens, womens, and kids boxes (mini explorer) and the items inside are so cool.    
Currently they have a giveaway going on through their Instagram (@Hazel_Ln) and facebook pages.  You can win a Brooklyn Mini Explorer Box.  They are also offering $5 off to anyone who wants to buy a box by entering "ThenIGotToThinking" at check out.

FIVE.

Have a beautiful weekend.

A full bottle of white wine, like pinot grigo or muscato with a can of diet sprite or fresca and a ton of fruit. It definitely looks nice with ice in it, but it can water it down. I love coconut oil too, I give my dog a spoonful every day in the winter to keep his skin and coat moisturized!!

Last year I tried a bunch of white sangria recipes (and just winged it a handful of times, too!) I never put ice in mine, but used frozen peaches, raspberries, & strawberries (about 3/4-1 c of each), a bottle of moscato, and a can or two of Fresca! Keep it chilled for about an hour or two before you drink it to let the fruit flavor infuse a little. It is SO yummy!

I love Natasha's new store and I thought the bathing suits were just the cutest little things. There is a mint green one that I almost wanted to buy and just "hold on to", but I'm pretty sure my Husband would start running for the hills!

I love your little blog! What I love even more is your bows! :) I had the shower last weekend for my friend, and featured the bow I bought on her clothes line. It was so cute on the little paper mason jar. Thanks so much for your beautiful bows. As soon as I get a chance, I will send you some pictures of Taylor wearing the bows I have gotten from you. xo http://www.coastalkel.com

I've made this one before and it's pretty good!

I make one with peach chardonnay and 4 cans of Fresca ~ I cut up 2 peaches and about a pint of blueberries. If you are worried about ice watering down your drink you can make ice cubes out of pop, juice or wine. I do that with cranberry juice when I make a punch for our Christmas parties. Just a thought. There are so many sangria recipes on Pinterest ~ I know I have quite a few pinned under Cheers! Love that last quote. xo

I've recently seen a lot of coconut flour too - I wonder if that has similar benefits?

Natasha said...

I love that cute quote!

Thanks for the infograph regarding coconut oil! There is a lot of buzz about it and it's fun to know exactly what the benefits are!

A few weeks ago Rod and I tried the coconut flour from Costco, it didn't work well with the recipe I used. However, I plan on using with a recipe specifically calling for it to see how it turns out.
