Strawberry Moscow Mule Drink

Have you heard of a Moscow Mule drink? How about a Tennessee Mule? The Tennessee Mule is my husband’s favorite drink. I prefer to drink a Moscow Mule. If you have never heard of either drink, don’t worry, I’ll explain it. Valentine’s Day is coming up and I thought it was the perfect time to share my secret ingredient to make a Strawberry Moscow Mule.

A Tennessee Mule is made with Jack Daniels. The Moscow Mule is made with vodka. I’m not really a liquor drinker, but if I had a preference it would definitely be vodka. I like my drinks to have a good taste to it, and for it to be a little sweet. If you like fruity and semi-sweet then you will like this.

Here is how you make a Strawberry Moscow Mule

You will need the following:

  • Ice
  • vodka and ginger beer
  • limes (1 lime per drink)
  • mint
  • strawberries
  • secret ingredient-strawberry soda
My secret ingredient to make this Moscow Mule fruity and sweet.

First off, you want to put ice in your glass. It doesn’t matter how much. It’s your own preference. Then you add 1 squeezed lime. Next, you add 1 shot of vodka. Then you add in the ginger beer. Put in a piece of mint. Add a couple of splashes of strawberry soda, and then mix it with a straw or a spoon. To garnish the drink, add a strawberry.

This is a really simple and easy drink to make. Most importantly it tastes really good!

Salud!

Recharged for 2019

Happy New Year Y’all! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written a post. I miss you and I miss writing. I looked back and November 13th was the last post I wrote. I’m normally pretty good at staying consistent in getting posts out, but to be honest, I think it was much needed for me to take a step back and take some time off.

Here is an update on my life, why I took the time off, and how I’m recharged for the new year of 2019.

We are currently remodeling our home. It’s been a crazy adventure so far, but it has been fun. It’s also been a great time to spend some quality with my husband. We are still in the middle of the renovation but at least we have a working kitchen. Thank you, Lord! We were without a kitchen for over 2 months and our bedroom was my husband’s tool room. To say the least, it has been pretty stressful. We are halfway done with the kitchen remodel. You can follow along on our journey on Instagram.

Back in September, we got some news that tore my family and me up inside. We are continuing to pray for the situation and we are expecting great news. This is one of the reasons I slowed down on posting. Through the whole year of 2018, we had some really amazing things happen, and we also had some bad things. You got to take the good with the bad and be thankful for each day you have. I needed to take some time off and recharge my batteries for the new year of 2019.

I am starting 2019 with a new perspective. To live every day as my last and to not hold back. I also wanted to share a posting with you guys that I posted on Facebook January 1st. It reads as…

For the past 6 months, I have been contemplating if I was going to continue on with my blog. I’ve been taking some time off and honestly, it became easier to not post, and not have to worry about getting things out. When I travel I can actually be there at that moment and not have to be on my phone.

I started my blog because I love to write and I wanted to make a difference in other people’s lives. I wanted to bring joy and positivity in the world. I wanted to empower women to be their best version of themselves.

In this negative world, I am reminded every day that I’m not making the money I should be making, and I’m wasting my time. Believe me, it’s hard to shut out those negative thoughts. It’s even harder to say I’m going to continue on, when all of my time, dedication, and hard work has not paid off. It’s the never-ending battle that each of us deals with on a daily basis. We are all faced with this negativity.

I am choosing to continue on even though everything else tells me to stop. I didn’t do this for the money. I didn’t do this for the accomplishments. I started my blog because I wanted to be the voice that raised up people’s spirits. I wanted to be the voice of encouragement. I wanted to be the voice to say you are worthy, and you are beautiful when the world says otherwise.

Today, I continue on no matter how my journey looks. It may not be the kind of journey that the world says is acceptable. I make my own journey, and in my own eyes, it will be Positively Beautiful because I didn’t let the world say when I should stop.

Positively Beautiful Life celebrates 5 years today. Thank you so much for following along and supporting!

 

That’s it guys, we are going on our fifth year. We don’t know what is to come but we are hoping for the best.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DIY Farmhouse Style Bed Frame

Our bed broke. What’s the first thing that pops in your head? Well, it’s not what you might be thinking. Our 13 year old son likes to run as fast as he can and jump on the bed really hard. We had a metal bed frame and one of the center pieces that support the middle broke right off. We used this as a good excuse to look for our first bedroom set. We never had a complete set before and thought it was time.

Black and Brownish

I used to stay away from wearing black with any tint of brown. I was afraid of what others would think if it didn’t go perfectly together. I’ve said this plenty of times, but fashion is about you, not about what everyone else thinks. Fashion is meant to be fun and to take risks. Plus, it’s fall time and black and brown are prime colors for the season.

 

This outfit that I’m wearing is super cute! I have on skinny black pants with a brownish V-neck crisscross backless, loose knitted sweater. I’m also wearing some 3-inch heels with some fringe.

Alternatives to Celebrating Halloween

When you think of Halloween, you think of taking your kids trick or treating, making cookies, and going to a haunted house. When I was little, Halloween was my second favorite holiday next to Christmas. I loved to dress up and to  decorate for Halloween. It’s a fun holiday that is harmless, right?

 

I am a Christian and have been for most of my life. I never once thought that Halloween was bad. As I have grown deeper into my faith, the actual holiday has opened up my eyes to so much more. Halloween is meant to be harmless, but the roots of the holiday is not something I want to be a part of, or I want my family to be a part of.

Orange is Perfect For The Fall

I have another outfit this week that is orange, but this time bright orange! I love how I can wear this outfit now when it’s still warm. I can easily transition into warmer wear if the weather ever decides to cool down.

 

Being that it is still 85 degrees, a skirt like this is perfect to get in some fall pictures and not die of a heat stroke. If you live in Texas, or if you have ever visited, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
