Come cheers
with Chelsea!

Take a peek inside my life as I stir in a little spooky, shake up some cocktail fun and garnish it with the parenting wiles of a little monster and boo.

Hang out in my web and join me in a toast to cobwebs, cocktails and motherhood.

  • Six Months Into Motherhood

    Six Months Into Motherhood

    I can’t believe I’ve been a mom for six months! I can’t believe my baby girl is already six months old! Where did the time go? It still feels like we just came home from the hospital yesterday. The time is flying to fast, but I’m doing my best to enjoy every moment of it. Before […]

  • Let’s Talk Wine…Cocktails that Aren’t Sangrias

    Let’s Talk Wine…Cocktails that Aren’t Sangrias

    Despite being an avid wine drinker, I’m not a huge fan of sangria. When drinking them at restaurants, they’re not usually up to par and there’s only one sangria that I can think of that I genuinely enjoyed which was made by an old co-worker. White wine, white peaches, white raspberries and grand marnier, it […]

  • “The Pink Elephant” Cocktail Recipe

    “The Pink Elephant” Cocktail Recipe

    Inspired by HedgeComber’s Pink Elephant cocktail recipe, I sought out to make this recipe in large batch format so I wouldn’t need to keep mixing it up for guests during the party. Everything was chilled in advanced so the drink would be ready to serve. You may have also noticed that I substituted lemons in […]

    Come one! Come all! Step right up to read all about the details of my 30th Pink Elephant Vintage Circus birthday party! It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for!

  • Anniversary Celebration at Trader Vic’s

    Anniversary Celebration at Trader Vic’s

    We celebrated our anniversary at Trader Vic’s last Friday for lunch and boy, did we have a blast! We had the pleasure of checking out Trader Vic’s last year for brunch in November when we attended their Hawaiian Brunch and Bazaar to support our favorite bar tender, B-Rex selling his wares. I was eight month […]

  • Four Years of Wedded Life

    Four Years of Wedded Life

    I never get tired of thinking about where we’ve been and where we’ll go. Going on nine years of getting to know each other and four years of marriage, we have been through so many adventures and I love that we only continue to plan even more. As it is, we’re on the amazing adventure […]

  • My Top 5 Favorite Cocktails

    My Top 5 Favorite Cocktails

    As a wine lover, I’m betting you’ll be expecting to see a sangria or mimosa on this list, but prepare to be surprised! And on that note, even though I love me some good vino, rarely will you see me ordering a glass. While out, I greatly enjoy ordering cocktails. Especially when they make me […]

  • Three Months into Motherhood

    Three Months into Motherhood

    I know that I’m rather beside myself that I’m already into three months of being a mommy! I cannot believe it. To be honest, it still feels like it was just yesterday that we were coming home from the hospital. It may be flying by, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it has been uneventful! […]

  • Welcoming Our Loved Ones through Our Halloween Tree

    Welcoming Our Loved Ones through Our Halloween Tree

    Our Halloween Tree looked gorgeous  in the glow of lit jack-o’-lanterns and Halloween lights and the pumpkins’ lights made it all through the night well into the passing of the veil closing. I was quite impressed by how long the balloon lights did last as most of them were just leftovers from a previous party […]

    Slainte! to Halloween 2017

    I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween and celebrated just the way they wanted! What were your Halloween plans?

  • Comfortable, Cute & Expecting

    Comfortable, Cute & Expecting

    My life has been focused on our move, our coming baby and Halloween. Unfortunately, Halloween was been pushed to a back burner repeatedly as the first two become more pressing of matters when it comes to getting our old house on the market, our new house unpacked as well as finding a new hospital and […]
