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.

    Let’s Toast!…To Life’s Surprises

    Our family and friends have been asking and waiting and and asking and waiting… …And now? The time is here! My husband and I are very excited over our little monster and I’m very excited to go through the experience and share it with you all. Thank you for letting me share our excitement with you!

    20 Weeks of Tiki Drinks

    On the small island of Alameda, California is a quaint little tiki bar which houses a vast collection of rums from around the world as well as delicious tiki-inspired libations for your consumption.  This small hide away is the one and only Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge. They have an exclusive “Kill Devil Club” for those that have conquer the…

  • Three Years of Wedded Life

    Three Years of Wedded Life

    What’s the difference between wedded and married? Not much, actually. But for Erick and I, it is a little different. We celebrated 5 years of marriage in February even though today marks the official date of our wedding festivities. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think both are big milestones so since I didn’t share my feelings of celebration…

  • Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars

    Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars

    Last year, I celebrated my birthday adventure in wine country. I had such a blast that I decided to do the same this year and even ventured out of my comfort zone from my beloved Castello di Amorosa. I was not sure what awaited us during our time at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, but it was…

  • An Elvira Wig Styling How-To

    An Elvira Wig Styling How-To

    I forgot to mention in the video that I am following the tutorial shared by Bouffant Delacroix. Obviously, I did not follow them step by step (I could NOT get their “tacking” technique down at all. It was just total annoyance instead of assistance), but thanks to them, I got a rather kick-booty looking wig.…

  • Dell Osso’ Family Farms Corn Maze 2016

    Dell Osso’ Family Farms Corn Maze 2016

    I still can’t believe we ended up spending over six hours at the corn maze! We definitely made good use of our time, regardless. It was constant fun the whole time we were there. It was also Dell Osso’s 20th anniversary for their corn mazes so a very special event to be sure. ๐Ÿ™‚ Naturally,…

  • Dell Osso’ Family Farms Corn Maze 2015

    Dell Osso’ Family Farms Corn Maze 2015

    Unlike my other Monster Gracey presents, this one was somewhat poorly planned and will be lacking in a video. As a tradition, the hubbs and I always go to a corn maze since we started dating. And it has always been the same one. The Dell Osso’ Family Farms Corn Maze has been our pick…

  • Bailey’s Ghost Cocktail

    Bailey’s Ghost Cocktail

    I’m not sure how it happened, but over the years, we’ve accumulated a couple bottles of Bailey’s Irish Cream. Because of this, I really wanted to make something that used it. I don’t know if it goes bad or what, but these bottles are just sitting around, so I thought, “Why not?”. I took an…

  • Just Another Trip to Castello di Amorosa

    Just Another Trip to Castello di Amorosa

    “Just another trip to the castle…” she said casually. Only any trip to any castle isn’t “just” another trip. It’s a new magical adventure just waiting to be discovered! My latest visit to one of my favorite places this past Saturday was exactly that. My husband was out of town with my sister, attending a convention.…

  • Clue Carousal

    Clue Carousal

    The Clue Carousal was a major success for our first party in our new apartment! We ended up having a total of 18 guests. Since Erick and I started our own parties, I’ve never had such a great turn out. It was an awesome feeling. Not only that, at the end, lots of people were asking for…

  • Dell Osso’ Farms Corn Maze From 2010 to 2013

    Dell Osso’ Farms Corn Maze From 2010 to 2013

    One tradition that Erick and I have made and followed through together is going to the Dell Osso’ Corn Maze every year since we started dating. It has been such a fun tradition and we always get such great memories from it. Dell Osso’ Farms Corn Maze 2010 We went with a large group of…

  • Comikaze 2012 : Sunday

    Comikaze 2012 : Sunday

    Day two was a little less eventful. There were plans to attend just one panel and the rest of the time was used to enjoy and peruse the exhibit hall. There didn’t seem to be as much of a line on Day Two, so we stopped by Stan Lee’s museum. I was rather underwhelmed. It…
