Mrs. Cummings’ February in Review

Been a busy month….not a lot of time or energy for blogging unfortunately. I think everyone gets a little surge of energy for January and resolutions and such but for me it always runs out about February 🙂 Anyways, here’s what I’ve been up to (my “excuses” for not posting)….more crafting and cocktails in the near future!


Went to visit my bestie in Indiana! We got snowed in, drank a lot of wine, and did some “crafting”. After nagging me for nearly 2 years, I decided to make the trip, it was worth it.

Queen Kasey

I tried to teach her to cook but I just ended up cooking for her and her man every night while they concentrated on homework (I’m pretty sure Kasey was on gchat the whole time but I let it slide…). They are both working on their PhDs in civil engineering…ridiculously smart couple and I had a fun week of distracting them away from their work!

I made her these chalkboard wine glasses….but after a wild night of wine and House we broke one after missing a “high five”. Hahaha like I said, we drank a lot of wine 🙂

Geriatric Birthday Cake

Last weekend was my brother-in-law Chris’ birthday! We went out to celebrate, and I brought the gift of an embarrassing cake 🙂 I love to play with cake decor, even though I am much too impatient to bake. After acquiring some items from the pharmacy, I made a geriatric themed cake…..with all the essential medications for an old man.

It’s a prescription pad with a viagra, preparation H, and mira-lax. I thought it was cute and luckily it was well received. The cake is wrapped in fondant with a copper and brown plaid background. The best part….it was a GUINESS-BACON-CHOCOLATE cake! It sounds crazy but it tasted amazing. Happy Birthday, Chris!

Romantic Getaway

After 7 years together and a few months of marriage, Michael and I had faded out of the honeymoon phase. Marriage is a lot more work than I was expecting, but after a few long talks and a Romantic Valentine’s getaway, I think we are back in the game 🙂

Semiahmoo Resort-Golf-Spa Bellingham, WA

We went to this amazing seaside resort for the weekend! If you are in a rut in your love life…getaway. Even if it’s just some dumpy bed and breakfast in the next town, I think it’s so important to get away from life and focus on each other. We had a great valentine’s day dinner and a hot stone couples massage. I loved it and I love him, Happy Valentine’s Day baby 🙂

Mr. & Mrs.

Mrs. Cummings Rx’s Happy Hour

Been cocktailing and cooking as usual! I added an essential bar tool to my kitchen: the cocktail rimmer!

I cannot believe I have gone this long without one. It has a lime juice sponge, a salt try, and sugar tray…..all the essentials for a beautiful cocktail rim. LOVE IT! Cannot tell you how many plates of sugar and salt I have wasted, no mo!

Hosted my own happy hour with cocktails and appetizers since I didn’t want to go out…the guests said the compromise was worth it 🙂 Made lavender lemon drops and bacon/mushroom/ricotta melts, roasted garlic/tomato brushetta, and baked pita chips with hummus.Yum!

Mrs. Cummings Rx Happy Hour is open nightly 5pm… ahead for reservations and plan to take a cab home 🙂


I’m alive and WELL…..don’t worry everybody, I’ll try to keep up on this blogging adventure on a more regular basis. Thanks for reading!

  1. Glad you are well and happy! Yes, sounds like you are busy being happy and having a good time……that’s what counts! We hit 27 years marriage this April and a getaway is in the works…….to Florida! No kids, no dogs …… just me and him (gosh, I hope I can find something to talk about LOL kidding, I hope)

    ooh — I’m jealous of your cocktail rimmer! I have a whole little shelf of tupperwares with different sugar/salt mixes!

    Wow! You’ve been busy!
    I have big envy of your valentines getaway – it looks beautiful 🙂 And I think that’s really good advice, it’s too easy to get stuck in a routine with each other so it’s good to take time to make it fun again!

  4. Happy Hour…that sounds bloody amazing! 🙂

    You are a busy gal! Glad you were able to get away with the hubs. We are headed into year 15. Unfortunately the kids make it a bit rough to get away much but we do what we can.
    I won’t lie… I can’t decide whether a Guiness, bacon and chocolate cake sounds good or not. I had stout ice cream once but wasn’t a huge fan but ANYTHING mixed with chocolate should be good…

    • it was amazing! but if you wanted to step 1 toe in I would go for guiness and chocolate first 🙂 oh yes trying to wait on those babies….chaos will ensue once they arrive I’m sure 🙂

    Jear Bear you should make something with chocolate whipped cream vodka…just discovered it and its supper cheap so I need some cocktail ideas!!! 😉 I’ve been using orange juice so it tastes like those chocolate oranges Grandma Carol use to give us but I was thinking you might be able to get more creative. Just a thought!! Love you!!! XOXOXO!!!
