Rose elderflower spritz

elderflower rose spritz

Who doesn’t love a cool cocktail on these warmer sunny days or nights? And with Memorial Day Weekend this weekend, it’s the unofficial start of summer. My favorite lately has been this rose elderflower spritz. St Germain elderflower takes this glass of chilled rose to a whole nother level and will make you feel feminine and like you’re sitting in a fragrant flower garden. I’m sharing how to make it below.

And for more cocktail/mocktail inspiration, check out some of the other ladies I’m teaming up with and their creations all the way at the bottom of this post.

Pancake Cereal

Could this breakfast BE any cuter? (Extra points if you said this in Chandler’s voice for all my Friends fans).

My guys love them some pancakes and this pancake cereal adds a fun little twist.

I’m sharing the easy recipe below.

 

 

Pancake Cereal

Pancake Cereal

 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups of milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • more melted butter to grease your pan or cooking spray
  • optional – fruits and veggies (I try to sneak some in to every meal I can), chocolate chips, sprinkles, whipped cream.

Directions:

1.) In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.

2.) Beat in eggs, milk, vanilla extract and melted butter until smooth.

3.) Add in some chopped fruits or veggies or chocolate chips. (I put in some chopped spinach and carrots and my kids didn’t even taste the difference – mom win!)

4.) In a large skillet, melt your butter or spray generously with cooking spray.

5.) Using a tablespoon, scoop little circles of batter into the pan (about half-dollar size).

6.) Once you start to see bubbles form on top of the pancake, flip, browning on each side.

7.) Remove from the skillet. Put in a bowl and serve with syrup, whipped cream or whatever you like. Our favorite version is with whipped cream and sprinkles!

 

Enjoy!

Ways to keep yourself from slipping into a funk while social distancing

  This post was sponsored by Reebok as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Thank you to Reebok for sponsoring today’s post.

Quarantine life day 1,354. That’s what it feels like anyway. And while my husband and I are both deemed essential and have to go to work, we’re still feeling the slump from not being able to go anywhere or see family or friends. There are some things that you can do to keep yourself feeling upbeat. I’m sharing with you some ways to keep yourself from slipping into a funk while social distancing.

1.) Get dressed every morning – Getting dressed, doing my hair and throwing on a little makeup makes me feel human and like a contributing member of society. This is something I learned back when I was home on maternity leave. You don’t have to get all fancy. Some days I put on jeans but most of the time it’s comfy athleisure. I love the new Reebok all-inclusive sizing line at Kohl’s.  They carry sizes from XS-4XL. The line is perfect for whether you’re lounging at home, chasing the kids or getting in a workout.

2.) Do something active – Exercising is a great way to boost one’s mood and also burn off all of those yummy treats and drinks that we’ve been consuming while home quarantined. Daily walks, bike rides and going for hikes has been a way for our whole family to exercise together and burn off some steam.

3.) Get outside – If there’s a silver lining it’s that this pandemic has come at time where it’s starting to get nice out. This is a great time to get outside and do some spring yard work or spring cleaning. Since we moved into our house a few years ago I’ve been wanting to start a garden and this was the perfect opportunity.

4.) Connect virtually with family/friends – Thankfully we live in a technological savvy world and there’s several apps that make it easier to connect with loved ones. Set up a virtual Happy Hour or play games with family and friends from afar with the Cards Against Humanity Lab.

 

What are some ways you’re getting through this time at home?

 

Be sure to head to Kohls and check out their new line of athleisure!
