I recently changed jobs in my company & along with the new responsibilities (& way less stress!) came a new cubicle.
I’ve always been a big proponent of personalizing my workspace & having lots of pictures around me, but with this new space I wanted it to be a little nicer than my previous one. So instead of just taping some photos to the wall in a collage or something, I was inspired by the ‘photo clothesline’ trend on Pinterest.
This was so easy to do! All I used was twine, mini clothespins, & thumbtacks.
I tied the twine around two thumbtacks securely & then pushed them into my cubicle wall. If you can’t do that, then I’m sure a nail or something would work just as well.
The pictures & clothespins are going to weigh down the twine, so you don’t really want to leave slack when you’re pinning up the twine, but you don’t want to make it too taught. Play around with the placement & see what looks best to you.
I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out. It makes my workspace feel more homey & makes coming to work all the more
Flowers from my hubby help, too ❤
Is your workspace decorated?
It’s National Margarita Day!
Last year we celebrated with strawberry margaritas. This year I wanted to share this delicious recipe with you.
My husband found the original recipe here, & changed it just a little bit. One of the commenters nicknamed it the White Margarita, so that’s what we call it. Made with silver tequila & lemon-lime soda (Sprite), it’s a cool white color in the end.
Sprite gives it a bubbly sweetness that makes it a little different that the traditional ‘rita.
Salt for him
None for her
My husband loves salt with his margaritas, I prefer them without 🙂
Salt or no salt, this margarita is deliciously refreshing. You can taste the tequila just enough to know you’re drinking the real deal, but not enough to give you flashbacks of your college days.
Feel free to adjust the amount of soda or lime juice as needed. My husband likes his strong & I like mine sweet, but the below recipe is just right for both of us.
Enjoy National Margarita Day responsibly!
- 1/2 cup silver tequila
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 1/4 cup triple sec
- 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda such as Sprite
- salt for rimming glasses (optional)
- lime wedge, for serving
- Rim 2 glasses with salt (if desired), & fill with ice.
- Pour the tequila, lime juice, triple sec, & soda into a shaker filled with ice. Be sure to hold your hand over over the top of the shaker so that it doesn’t pop off from the carbonation.
- Pour into prepared glasses, serve with a lime wedge, & enjoy!
There’s this restaurant in the hipster neighborhood of Wynwood (Miami) called Kush that serves an amazingly delicious burger. The burger is so…well, let me just copy the menu description for you:
Burger served with guava jelly, melted Gruyere, stuffed with potato stix, crispy bacon, LoKal sauce and then pressed on a flat top grill.
Are you drooling yet? You should be!
I was inspired by this burger to make my own – albeit less decadent – burger.
(This is really less of a recipe & more of a burger topping suggestion!)
We had some Bubba burgers left over from a family barbecue, brie cheese left over from another recipe, & guava paste because I’m Cuban & it’s a staple in my house. Bingo.
If this combination sounds weird to you, just know that guava & cheese is a CLASSIC in the Hispanic community.
I cut up the brie & guava paste to melt over the pre-cooked patty.
To complete this beautiful burger I turned to another classic Hispanic pairing – mayoketchu. As the name suggests, it’s equal parts mayonnaise & ketchup. It’s also surprisingly tasty to someone who hates ketchup (me).
Put it all together on a bun & you have an wonderfully Hispanic Hamburger.
I’m not the greatest at taking pictures of sandwiches/burger, but that still looks pretty great to me!
