Christmas Party 2014 Sneak Peak!!!!

Planning a party (a good party) involves a lot of work. You have to set up a guest list, create a menu, figure out what music you want to have, party favors, etc. It's slowly becoming a tradition that my family throws a Christmas party each year. This year we are having another Christmas sweater party (check out last year's pics here: http://www.itsmiraclewhip.com/2013/12/ugly-christmas-sweater-party.html) and it's going to be bigger than the last. We had exactly 50 people at the party last year and it was at our house, this year we are expecting double the amount of people so we had to rent a building. We've been planning for this party for months so the fact that it's happening this week is nerve wrecking yet exciting. It's finally here!

Here's a sneak peak of things for the party as far as where we went shopping, some décor, etc:


Once again we took a family trip to Garden Ridge; they changed the name to At Home (who knows why) I seriously love this place. It has any and everything you'll ever need for any holiday, not to mention amazing décor for any time of the year. It's a holiday wonderland in there!

Starbucks Got Some Explaining To Do!!!

 6 Starbucks Secrets You May Not Know About... SAY WHAAAAT!?
 

  • Just because you're getting a Venti (the largest size) at Starbucks doesn't mean you're getting more caffeine. A Venti contains the same amount of caffeine as a Grande (medium size), the only thing you're getting more of is milk!!! (Venti and Grande both contain 2 shots of espresso) So if it's more caffeine you want... a Venti won't do you any good.
 
  • Don't be rude to the barista... they might just decaffeinate your (supposed-to-be-caffeinated) drink.
 
 
  • The iced drinks that you like to order are almost half ice. Ask for light ice so you get more for your money... unless you don't mind a lot of ice.
 
 
  • Bring in your own cup and get 10 cents off! (Hey, every cent counts!)
 
 
  • Most baristas secretly hate making Frappuccinos but won't mind making them if the line is short. (apparently there's a lot of steps in making one)
 
 
  • There is no [official] Starbucks secret menu. Just combinations people have started coming up with over the years. If you want a drink from the “secret menu” then bring the recipe because more than likely the barista won't know how to make it. 


What's your favorite thing to order from Starbucks?

I know, I know, I haven't been blogging lately. Sorry!! I'm back now and I figured I would kick off the first day of September with a 'Pictures of the Week' post. So here are pictures I took from August 24-Sept 1.



My bff and I were watching the VMAs together. Can I just say Beyoncé gave me soooo much life! Her performance was amazing. What was your favorite part of this year's VMA's?
(If you know me or been looking around my blog for a while now then you know I always have to take a silly picture. It's a must)

Jazz Festival 2014

Hey everyone.
So over the weekend my best friend (Shay) and I went to a huge jazz festival near our area and it was amazing. The festival not only had jazz artists but rhythm & blues, gospel, and latin artists.  There were over 20 performers so I'll just name a few: Boz Scaggs, Cassandra Wilson, Boney James, Sean Jones, Babyface, Regina Carter, Mary-Mary, Water Seed, Plunky & Oneness, Cameo, Dianne Reeves, Eric Benet, and more!  *WARNING! This post gets extremely sloppy towards the end. Some pictures and videos are too spaced out and in weird areas. The words I typed out are on the side of videos... I don't know how to fix it and I've been trying to figure it out for over 2 hours now! It's so frustrating. If you know how to fix this please let me know! My apologies, I hope yall enjoy the post anyway!)

This park is HUGE! We were only on one side of it too.

TASTY Fruit Smoothie With NO added sugar

It's so easy to get your daily serving of greens especially if you blend them up into a smoothie. I like using spinach because you can add as much spinach as you want to a smoothie and you won't even taste it. Here's a great combo that has a lot of spinach in it and still tastes amazing:
-Strawberries
-Pineapples
-A banana
-Almond milk
-Spinach

Everything on my plate was good. There were ribs, seafood salad, seafood boil, salad, cupcakes, cake, a giant fruit salad, potato salad, and baked beans.
 
Seriously y'all, the food had me like:

Um... What?!!


This Tennessee bride wanted to include her baby in her wedding. So she had her (1 month old) baby attached to her wedding dress and drug her down the aisle. Apparently most of her guests liked the idea but not people on Facebook. People [online] are saying it was classless, dangerous, and stupid.  Here's what she posted:

D.I.Y: How To Make A Candy Centerpiece

                               You will need:
  • Lollipops ( I chose Dum-Dums but any kind is fine)
  • At least 2 sheets of tissue paper
  • Spray Adhesive
  • A piece of foam like this
1. Use the spray adhesive to stick the two pieces of tissue paper around the foam.
2. Stick lollipops in foam. It's that simple!
 
I made this centerpiece for a retirement party. I think it turned out pretty well.

Tornado Safety Tips ✔


It's tornado season for a lot of us; stay prepared and safe with the following tips:
  • Download a weather alert app from your local news station to warn you when a tornado is headed your way.
  • Go to the lowest floor of your house (or whatever building you're in).
  • Find a room with no windows. Hallways, closets, and basements would be ideal.
  • If you happen to be driving, find the nearest building and run inside or lie flat in a ditch with your arms over your head. Never stay in the car!
  • Never stay in a mobile home!!
  • NEVER seek shelter under a bridge!!
Stay safe everyone!!!
