This week starts a new feature that I’m so excited about! Each week I invite you to stop by for my checkIn & checkOut posts, which will be a list of recipes, cocktails, products, projects or new finds that I’m excited to try. It will be a weekly dose of fun and inspiration!
I am so ready to get my St. Patty’s Day celebrations under way with this classic dinner. I’m even more excited to make Heidi’s Reuben sandwiches with the leftovers!
How much fun are these shamrock shaped tortilla chips? The kids will love using the cookie cutters and we will all love dipping them or making some nachos!
checkOUT: this Irish Julep from the Real Housemoms
Um, yes please. This cocktail looks so delicious and refreshing! I love a good beer, but this St. Patty’s Day, I’m going to try mixing up one (or two) of these!
So this past Wednesday my friend Jen asked me to act as a hair model for a training in her brand new salon…who am I to say no to a fabulous mid-day updo??? I had known about Morrocanoil Hair Care products and had even tried the oil in the past, but this Curl Defining Cream was new to me and it CHANGED. MY. LIFE. First of all it smells amazing. And it held my wavy, curly hair without being crunchy or sticky. I actually may have to do a follow up post soon just about this stuff. If you have curly hair, get you some!
Finally, if you’re looking for an easy, last minute St. Patrick’s Day craft to do with the kids, try these cork stamps. I can see all 3 of my kids enjoying this activity and then we can hang up their artwork and call ourselves decorated for the holiday! And I think I might just have a few (dozen) wine corks lying around here somewhere…
So, please let me know what you think of this new feature…I hope you checkIn next week to checkOut some more great finds!
And if you try any of these recipes, products or projects, please take a photo and tag me on Instagram with #checkincheckoutfriday.
