Arnold Happenings

And here I said I was going to be better about blogging…anyway, as you can see I have updated the blog quite a bit! Hopefully this will inspire me to post more often. Life is pretty boring right now(in the best way). Things are calm and I am enjoying this time of being a new wife. Anyway, I hope to post more, not only of our life events, but of recipes and fun creative projects I get into! Soon I plan to share a ton of the DIY projects I completed for the wedding! But all in due time!!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock(or you’re not American) you know that last week was the 4th of July! Normally we would travel to either set of parents for this holiday but this year responsibility and work kept us here in Mississippi so we decided to have our own little celebration here. We settled on a southern feast of fried catfish, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw and banana pudding!

Along with all of that I made frozen strawberry margaritas in my new Ninja blender! I have been wanting one for a while and used wedding gift cards to purchase one! The thing is pretty amazing! It is quite the machine! I have used it quite a bit in the week I have owned it and I hope to share a little of what it can do. Anyway, here is the recipe I used to make the margs. I wanted a recipe that was natural and not using a mix! I hope you enjoy should you decide to partake 🙂

Frozen Strawberry Margaritas


3 cups strawberries

1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

3/4 cup añejo tequila

2 tablespoons agave nectar

Pinch of salt

3 cups ice

4 strawberries, dipped in fine sugar


  1. In a blender, purée 3 cups strawberries, orange-flavored liqueur, lime juice, añejo, agave nectar and salt. Add 3 cups ice and blend until smooth.
  2. Divide among 4 glasses; garnish each with a sugar-dipped strawberry.
Makes 4 cocktails.

I am currently obsessed with the song Demons by Imagine Dragons. I am also digging Paper Doll by my most favorite John Mayer! It is such a simple song but poetic and great to drive to. I am so excited for his new album being released next month! Whatever music you like, turn it up and enjoy!

Stay southern,
