4. 3. 2. 1...

OH what a year... 2012 has been amazing for the rustic rooster! As I look back and reminisce of the good times... All I can do is smile ear to ear. My grandmother turned 100 years old and is till kicking butt {love her}! Mom and I have been truly blessed with 2 new fabulous employees at the rooster, Natasha and Melissa. The vibe and work production in 2012 has absolutely blown us away. We've grown our accessories like no other. We've added new furniture to the rooster family that has been selling like hot cakes. Our custom furniture  designs have brought so much joy to all of our customers and clients. Yes! I could go on and on with 2012 accomplishments, but I don't want to bore you... Now to the good stuff... 2013!
This is going to be the year of growth and change! After heavy conversation we're going to be re-opening up our online shopping cart again. The demand to ship our furniture and accessories all over the state in 2012 has got us thinking... It's time to re-open this little guy I've worked so hard on for years and spent a lot of money on.  Now with all of the wonderful man power we can actually stay on top of things!  Next on our new 2013 jump is moving our interior design office to a bigger space. Don't get too excited... It's just a room over {chuckle}. With the all of our new and amazing clients we need more space for them. We also need to make room for a bigger sourcing library. Getting out of the office and traveling more is on the list of to-do's this year as well... It's been hard with 2 kids. Now I think I can manage it once a week. I truly cant wait. Plus, the rooster is growing up a little...  The rustic rooster is entering into our 13th year of business so we've changed a few things with our logo... etc. Keep watching our growth. It's fun! Just wait till you see our new  custom exterior sign shipped all the way from the east coast.  Thank you all for supporting the rustic rooster... We couldn't have done it without you. 2013 looks so bright and exciting!!! If you have any ideas or suggestions please do not hesitate to tell us! We love hearing from all of you! Thank you again... Happy New Year!

lazy day

So you really want to know what I'm doing today! OK, I'll let you know... Absolutely nothing and I'm loving it!

It feels so good to sit by my fireplace and stare at my little ones stockings. I know they have to come down soon... But it just warms my heart to know they get such a thrill hanging them up every year in anticipation that Santa Clause will fill them. I've needed to take a moment to relax and just enjoy the little things in my life. My kids are growing so fast. I wish they would stop! I know you all understand... Why can't someone invent a drink to stop them from growing {wink}!  

I did buy myself a Christmas present the other day... Yup, just for me! Every time I would walk into Anthropology, Target, Barnes and Nobles this one book would stare right at me. OK Target made me buy it... The Happiness Project. Have you heard of it? Of course I'm happy, but who doesn't want to be happier. I do! I love challenging myself to different things in life. It's a new year so I need a new goal... Happiness Project bring it on! 

Hope you all are enjoying a lazy Wednesday!

growing up...

I was scrolling through pictures on my computer last night & saw this one of Miss Taylor at the Wild Animal Park in San Diego. OMG look at her.  I thought she was such a big girl in this picture...


Now look at Taylor! 

  She's growing like a weed... 6 years old! I can't get a grasp on this growing up thing. I wish I could just push a button and they would stop growing!

I'm sitting at my desk right now absolutely sick with the tragedy that has just occurred in Connecticut today. I can barely focus. I've taken 2 Tylenol's and almost left the office to go and pick up my babies from there schools. OMG How could any human being do something like this... Kill innocent young beautiful children. Kill anyone! I'm truly stunned. Why has this happened?
Life is absolutely precious. We need to love and laugh more. Embrace everything we can as much as possible. Let all evil go with in us... Be nice and kind to all! I know this might sound weird to some, but I've always felt butterflies that have surrounded {in a garden, on a walk... anywhere} me are my loved ones. Look and watch today as you are out and about... 
I'm praying for all the families that have lost their loved ones. My heart goes out to each of them! I am so so sorry!
Life is so short...  
Love and live as much as possible!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, Kind of... It's actually hot out here in Southern California. Don't get me wrong it's chilly in the mornings and evenings, but omg during the day it's jacket free weather. I grew up here so I really don't know anything different... But I feel like the weather every December has gotten hotter and hotter. Weird! Do you agree?      

On a different note...
Have you been naughty or nice this year?
I think I've been a little bit of both. I wonder what Santa's going to bring me this Christmas?

yes please!

Christmas parties are finally here! Yaaa I absolutely love this time of year!  Of course we're all scrambling for the perfect cocktails to serve our guests. Don't sweat it... I think I found a good one for you. Please, make one {or two} and let me know how they taste. Cheers!   

pomegranate margaritas




2 ounces Grand Marnier
1 1/2 ounces Tequila
2 ounces pomegranate juice
2 ounce lime juice
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
coarse salt for the rim
lime + pomegranate arils for garnish


For simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve, then turn off heat and let cool completely.
Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in margarita salt. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, pom juice, simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in extra lime slices. Add some pomegranate arils for decoration.
[This recipe can be easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. Since everyone’s tastes differ, add simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time and go from taste. I also suggest buying the lime juice if you plan on making a pitcher (or 2) considering you’d have to squeeze a billion limes to get enough juice.]
