I picked up this idea from the DIY network. We pretty much stream that channel in this house all weekend while we are doing projects.
Fracture is a cool-as-heck site that will print any picture you have on a piece of glass (either wall hanging or with a cardboard easel on the back).
Prices seem pretty reasonable too.
That’s about what it would cost to print a photo and buy a matt/frame.
I thought ,”What the Heck?”, why not commemorate our 36 hours in Key West with a piece of art?
I choose this one.
Because…….every other time we go to Key West alone, and I take this same shot myself with my arm extended….and it looks like this…..
See what I mean? Not this trip. We thought ahead and brought a photographer (My brother Ben)….and then dragged him to all those spots where we have always wanted decent pictures taken.
Anyhoo, I uploaded our picture to the Fracture site, choose my size, No border, wall hanging, and pressed the “Place Order” button.
I even Googled a discount code (RFR19835) for 5 dolla’s off….(That means that you folks can try the 8″ picture for only 5 bucks right now, go on, try it)
It takes about 2 weeks to process, so I’ll keep y’all up to date on how she looks when we get her.
We both love to eat, ….and drink.
We’ve wanted to start posting a few of our favorite recipes…and somehow it seemed fitting to start our foray into recipes with a cocktail.
This is the perfect “dead heat of the summer” refresher…..Just imagine slurping down one of these on a warm summer evening after a meal of grilled burgers and fire-roasted corn on the cob.
This idea was actually inspired when we replaced our glassware. I know it sounds lame, but we have been using logo’d pub pints for way too many years now. They are the kind of pint glasses that tap houses used to give away on Tuesday nights. Remember those? Drink the beer, take home the glass. My brothers and I would hit the Flying Saucer just for the glasses….and I still have all of them. I know, I know…hoarder.
But we are grown ups now, (yes we are, Kylie), and we should be drinking from actual glasses.
Fear not. I found these massive “Man-sized” 21 ounce glasses at the Crate & Barrel outlet. 5 ounces more than a pint. I looked that up. And yes, we do need to start shopping at a few other stores. (other than Ikea…..or Target)
Start with a heaping scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream. No other kind will work. Every Texan will agree with us on this point. (OK, use whatever brand of vanilla ice cream you want….but they won’t taste like ours)
Into the massive tumbler it goes. Folower by 1 ounce of 3 Olives Root Beer Vodka and 1 ounce of Absolute Vanilla Vodka.
Pour root beer over the whole mess.
Enjoy……Now wasn’t that easy?
