Check This Out!

We told you we loved mags and now there is a new ONLINE design magazine from one of the editors of Domino! It's called Lonny and the link is They say "We believe that good design and affordable design can coexist and that true inspiration can be found in the teeniest of homes or in the grandest of spaces" and we couldn't agree more!

Feliz Navidad from Arizona!

Okay we both are magazine junkies...LOVE THEM...and we WERE both subscribers and cover to cover readers of Cottage Living and Domino...both great mags that are now sadly no longer with us... Sooooo the magazine publishers have been sending me Sunset magazine instead (really people, couldn't you have subbed Coastal Living instead of Sunset? Can't a girl dream?) and the December issue had what I thought was a great idea for a Christmas Party with a twist...Fun and easy Desert-Mex party. Yummy food, bright colors and the best looking margs...YUM!

Cranberry Margaritas

Okay it is kinda chilly to be putting your feet in the pool, but doesn't this look fun! Maybe we move this party inside:)

Easy, yummy food like guacamole, taquitos, fresh salsa, chips are all crowd pleasers...

How about an adult pinata!This one is modern and get creative with what is inside!

What amazing colors in the decorations...and a $2.95 per candle, you have got a great take home treat!
( or any Walmart in Phoenix:)
If you don't have this party for Christmas then put it in your back pocket for another day and send us and invite!!

Crazy for Scout...

We have been CRAZYabout Scout bags for awhile as they are so useful, fashionable and affordable! The most expensive bag here is $43 and that is for the Four Boys Bag which is HUGE and so great for traveling with kids. They are easy to spot at baggage claim, fold flat when you are not using them, are made of a durable polywoven fabric that is water resistant and can be wiped clean. We really want The Weekender and a vacation to go with it:)...check them all out at

Gifts For All Ages (Part 3) The Aspiring Chef...

This is a set of nested bowls that would be perfect for Chips and Dips! They are 100% Melamine, are dishwasher safe and are $32 for the set of 4. (

Such a fun way to identify all those recipes you want to try, just peel off the flag and stick to the recipe page.  They are only $5.95 and would be so handy! (

This fun and funky pan is from Broadway and is only $23.95. We think you should put some amazing Barefoot Contessa Brownie Mix Inside and a cute color spatula, wrap it with a bow and you have the cutest gift ever! Put this in your back pocket...
