Sip and Shop Sunday [Cocktails & Christmas Lights]

Sipping on a Grown Up Shirley Temple....

This bubbly, red cocktail is the perfectly festive for the Christmas season.  Serve it in pretty glass or whip up a whole pitcher and throw in some limes.  So fun.

I know y'all are going to think I'm nuts with this shopping edition, but this extension cord is a new addition to our Christmas decor and every time my foot taps the button I smile.  No more leaning over and hanging off the arm of the sofa while squeezing behind the tree and holding my breath that I don't knock it over.  Our tree sits in the corner of the living room and the outlet is situated behind it.  This little extension cord really has made life easier.  I found mine at Target, but here's the Bed, Bath, and Beyond version -- where you can use your coupon!


So, what other little decorating tricks have I been missing all these years??? 

Happy Sipping and Shopping!

  1. Agree with the extension cord. We use that one in our oldest's bedroom. The others have remotes. Press of the button, and all set!! The other thing we bought a few years back was a tree funnel. It's a funnel with a long tube that attaches to the tree branches and feeds in the the tree stand. Makes watering the tree a breeze once the skirt is on and presents are underneath.

  2. We have that extension cord too. Most of my lights now are on timers... on and off automatically. xo


Thanks so much for buzzing by! I look forward to hearing from you!
