Happy weekend! How was your (hopefully) short week? Things were pretty good around here and I’m looking forward to enjoying the weekend. We have a bunch of friends coming over for Mexican food tonight. I hand-juiced a lot of limes last night for margaritas so you know it will be fun. Guacamole, enchiladas and some fun desserts don’t hurt either. Mostly I’m looking forward to catching up with friends, though. We don’t get to see them nearly as often as I like these days!
Then tomorrow we are celebrating my sister’s birthday (February / March are birthday crazy around here). With her new business and summer wedding I think this is going to be a pretty amazing year for Jess.
This bathrobe used to be SO big on him…
Oh, and speaking of margaritas, CruiseOne (a friend of mine works there) has declared Wednesday National Umbrella Drink Day. Now that is a holiday worth celebrating!!! Perhaps a Spicy Skinny Tequila Cocktail is in order? If you decide to celebrate (which you should), post a photo of your drink on social media with #UmbrellaDrinkDay on Wednesday to enter for some awesome prices like a hotel stay in Cancun! In conjunction with the promotion, CruiseOne is donating $1 to Make-A-Wish for every new 2016 booking made between now and February 29th.<—-Not sponsored, just wanted to share!
