Salted Watermelon Margarita

It's Friday! You made it through another week. Why not celebrate with this delicious summery cocktail!?

I made this margarita last Friday for National Tequila Day. But I really don't think you need to wait for a day like that to come around to enjoy some tequila!

Happy Cinco de Mayo + Margaritas

Posted May 5, 2015 in cinco de mayo, margarita, healthy living and 4 more


Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

The BF and I have plans to make tacos for dinner tonight. I'm hoping guacamole is involved. I haven't told the BF yet, but I have plans to make a margarita!

Homemade margs are my absolute favorite (besides champagne cocktails, of course). They're just so simple and delicious.

Before I get to the good stuff though, I'm going to vent for one second. Mexican restaurants around here don't make margaritas from scratch. They only use margarita mixes, which are usually made with high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors, and contain upwards of 800 calories. Ugh! I also just don't like them. They're way too sweet.

The BF gets annoyed with me because EVERY single time we go to our fave local Mexican place, I ask them if they can make a marg from scratch. They always say no (even though they have ALL of the ingredients behind their bar!!!). The BF doesn't understand why I ask every time, but you never know if they got a new bartender or someone learned how to make a margarita!

Anyway, whenever I'm out of town and I see a fresh made margarita on a menu I order it. Or I just make margaritas at home.

Weekend Recap {July 17-19, 2015} - Kansas City Weekend

Posted July 20, 2015 in travel, Kansas City, family and 10 more

Happy Monday! I spent the weekend in Kansas City with my fam to celebrate my aunt's 60th birthday.

I got to catch up with relatives, do some shopping, have fun at a water park and sneak in a meeting with a company I'm working with. It was a great weekend.

The line up of family members on this trip were: my parents, my brother, my sister-in-law, my niece, my Aunt Adel and Uncle Vic, my cousin Kristi and her husband, Avery, my cousin Jenny and her son, Ethan, my cousin Aaron and his wife, Tricia, and their kids, Cailyn, Dominic and Easton, and my Aunt Cindy and Uncle Mike, and their son, Thomas (and Thomas brought his girlfriend). Yeah…21 of us!

I'm actually feeling a bit exhausted today, but I got up early anyway for a morning workout. It definitely helped get me going!
