Creatively Productive & Productively Creative

 We are talking about all the ways we are squeezing productivity and creativity into our lives as mothers while sipping on a peachy cocktail.


The Shucks Deluxe

  • 4 large peaches, pits removed and cut in half

  • 2 tbsp. sugar

  • 2 tbsp. lime juice

  • 3 ounces vodka

  • 1 tbsp. lime juice

  • 1 cup sprite

  • 4 slices of peaches, garnish

  • 2 rosemary sprigs, garnish

Using a food processor, add in the 4 peaches (pits removed), sugar and lime juice. Pulse until pureed. Pour the contents into a fine sieve over a bowl to catch the nectar. Using the back of a spoon, push through all the nectar you can and toss the bits that don’t make it through. [To make Rosemary Simple Syrup] Combine 2 cups of water, 2 cups of sugar, 3 tbsp. corn syrup and 1/4 cup rosemary leaves in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and rest for 20 minutes. Strain into a glass and refrigerate until chilled. Using a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add in vodka, lime juice, honey, 2 tbsp. rosemary simple syrup, 4 tbsp. peach nectar and shake. Pour into two cocktail glasses filled with ice and top with Sprite and a splash of water. Garnish with two peach slices per drink and a rosemary sprig. Serves 2.

We chat about what it means to be productive as a mother, how we are or are not feeling productive as parents these days, and share some tips for moms.

We also check in on our personal creative projects, what ideas we have on the back burner, and if and how we're making time for our other pursuits. We’ve found that organization underlies productivity and creativity for us, so also talk about our methods of organizing these days. Kelsey is loving the Get to Work Book, and Erica is trying to find the perfect SAHM planner and debating about the Day Designer or the Daily Docket.

In current obsessions, Kelsey is obsessed with overnight oats, and Erica loves this adult coloring book, and these twistable colored pencils.

In neighborhood news, Safeway Guy listened to our podcast and commented. Kelsey met the new neighbors and they seemed normal! Cooler weather has increased neighbor interactions finally, and Erica hoped to see the neighbor's trash pile bust.
