his year we are traveling to Columbus to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. My sister in law is hosting, when I asked what to bring this year she said “all the food is covered so maybe bring drinks or a signature cocktail.” Well that’s right up my ally! I have rounded up a couple of drinks that are great holiday drinks, most you can even make without alcohol for a yummy drink for the entire family!
I searched through several Pinterest recipes I follow the Trim and Healthy Mama plan (at least try to most of the time) so that’s what I searched first and decided to go with for my signature cocktail I’m taking tomorrow.
I am making a Cranberry Wassail I made a non alcoholic version this week to try it out I like it a lot it was very sweet and tart but lots of holiday spices to! Tomorrow I plan to add a splash Prosecco to it to make it even more fun! You could add a LaCroix or Bubly water for non alcoholic fun to!
This drink can be enjoyed warm or cooled over ice as well.
Here is the the link to the recipe by Brianna Thomas.
Next is my favorite drink a Moscow Mule, now this one has been turned into a fall treat and is now an Apple Cider Mule but it sounds so yummy and I think I will definitely be giving it a try!
Who doesn’t love champagne and mimosas? Here is a quick holiday Cranberry Mimosa recipes that takes less than 5 minutes to make!
This last recipe looks so good! I mean sorbet in champagne.... yes please!
I know it’s called Santa’s little helper but I think this drink will be fine to go ahead and test out on Thanksgiving.
Let me know if you try out any of these drinks this weekend! I’m hoping to try out more than one!
One week ago today we had Friendsgiving at 13 below brewery! Here is what you missed and all the fun we had!
13 Below is a super chill brewery tucked away on the Ohio river right off of US 50 near Cabana's restaurant. They have a great beer selection brewed right here in the queen city. Also they have recently started serving the incline smoke shack featured every night with great BBQ, burgers, and giant pretzels with beer cheese!
Here is the contact for all of our featured businesses at the event, I know I had a great time talking to each one and meeting all of these great people!

Alright alright I’m sure almost everyone in the world knows Disney+ came out this week right? I just want to throw my quick thoughts out there about the new streaming service.
Who else has been binge watching all the Disney+ movies and shows available? I mean you are able to go on the app and go back to your early child good, teenage years, and of course the more recent you have probably enjoyed with your own kiddos right?
But seriously the vault classics, Hannah Montana, Lizzie McGuire, Star Wars, Marvel, and the dang Pixar short films I mean come on it really does have something for everyone!
I really feel it is very affordable for the $6.99 a month or $69.99 it’s definitely worth it and you get a lot more than some of the other streaming services. And it’s ad free it can’t get any better! Also another perk is you can add on Hulu and ESPN (I mean there has to be something in for those sports guys out there right?)
I only signed up for the 7 day free trial since my husband wasn’t on board for it but I definitely think we will be doing the package with Hulu for $12.99 a month since I am already streaming why not add Disney+
I do really do like it so far and plan to watch well pretty much everything on there! Just kidding well maybe ;) but it will be nice when it catches up to everyone in the world watching at times freezes up.
Overall I would definitely recommend all Disney lovers out there start streaming Disney+ today!
Those of you that have finished started your Disney+ binge what has been your favorite thing to watch? I have enjoyed watching a few classics but right now I'm in a Christmas mood so I have been watching a lot of those!

How did I get started event decorating? As a little girl, I enjoyed helping my mother decorate for special occasions and holidays. When I became an adult, I carried over a lot of my mother’s decorating traditions then elaborated on the details of decorating. Throughout the years, I have decorated and created flower arrangements as a hobby for myself and others. Recently, I stepped out on faith and created a platform, Yellow Bloom, to serve others with my God given talent of decorating. I inspire to serve others and make them feel like a Queen or King by relieving them of the stress of decorating details.
How did you become the successful businesswoman you are today?
LOL! I’m still trying to figure it out! I would say, what’s helping me so far is ..working hard, trusting and believing for God’s favor through the whole process, learning from mistakes, taking risks, applying all of my sales and business organizational skills, combing my personality with the desire to provide excellent customer service.

What are your professional goals for the next six months? I would like to see all three of my businesses thriving to the point where I will need to begin hiring staff to help run them all.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I have thought about going back to school to obtain a JD Degree which will help with me with my businesses.
How do you maintain a work life balance? Due to the fact, I am self-employed it has its benefits of being in control of my schedule. In addition, one of my husband’s and I philosophy is to work hard and play hard; therefore, we make sure we play as hard as we work.
What websites do you visit every day? I do not visit websites often; however, I am on social media quite often researching and posting.

Do you have any advice for women who would like to start their own business? Yes, I have three:
1. When you start a business, make sure you select a field that you love so much you would be willing to do it for free.
2. Always remember that no one is as passionate as you are about your business or your vision for your business.
3. Never wait on anyone to help make your visions or dreams come true.
