Another year! 2017 has been a big one for me – my 5 year college reunion, leaving St. Louis where I’d lived for 4 years, moving to Chicago with my boyfriend and Riply, being fun-employed, starting a new job, and of course, launching OMC! Plus all the traveling adventures, making new friends, and creative endeavors, it’s been a solid year. But now it’s time to set some #OMC2018Goals!
No, not resolutions – GOALS! Fun, tangible things I can check-off for the new year. Here are my #OMC2018Goals with a few looks back into 2017!
Y’all. I’ve taken the next step into dog motherhood. Riply now has her very own Instagram account (@riplyvsaliens)! Yes, that’s Riply vs Aliens 😝 Needless to say, I’ve become even more obsessed with my dog than ever before. I’m very thankful for Zach for his support but also for his occasional reminders to chill TFO. Hah! But that does not stop me from doing another dog post! Check out this recipe for homemade Grain-Free Bacon Dog Treats. Plus, sharing some of Riply’s favorite things – stuff that she loves, and has been real handy for us as…paw-rents. Sorry, couldn’t help it.
Today I’m bringing together two of my favorite things – whiskey and cupcakes! During these winter months, nothing warms me up better than a hot toddy. It’s a warm cocktail of whiskey, honey, and lemon juice (sometimes made with tea.) It’s delicious and warms the soul. I presonally also think it’s a great home remedy for sore throats and colds. 😉
These Hot Toddy Cupcakes may not have the exact same effect but they’ll definitely satisfy a sweet tooth!
