About Me

that's me ^
My name is Sheay, welcome to my blog. I am a Colorado girl who relocated to the big city a while ago. I'm lucky to have a beautiful home, wonderful husband, and two crazy dogs. I love to sew, cook and garden.

Why The Domestic Daiquiri?
Over a decade ago I was a feisty young thing that couldn’t have been less domestic. When I met my husband-to-be I didn’t cook and hated cleaning (ok, some things stay the same, but really who LOVES cleaning?) He use to say I was about as domestic as a lion.

One night, I was feeling adventurous so I grabbed the blender and decided to make strawberry daiquiris. After a little cussing (again, some things never change) I had successfully made an daiquiri. I came out with a big smile on my face and exclaimed “Look Honey! I’m domestic!”

It’s been a slow transformation from where I started to where I am today. The final step was when we relocated to Chicago in 2010. I left my job in Colorado and started a new career path… student/homemaker. I created The Domestic Daiquiri so I could share some of my triumphs, tips, and struggles.
