Happy National Margarita Day!

I thought since it's National Margarita Day it was only fitting to share my favorite recipe for this yummy slushy drink!

6oz frozen limeade concentrate
6oz tequila
6oz beer
fresh orange

~ Fill your blender pitcher with ice. Pour in half a can of frozen limeade; place the rest back into the freezer till your next batch. Add tequila and half a can of beer (light beer works well). Drink the rest of the can while blending. :) Slice the orange in half and squeeze one side into the pitcher; save the other half for your next batch. Blend until it reaches the consistency you like. Enjoy!

Flashback Friday

Exactly 5 years ago today. Gigi, we miss you and love you much!

The Little Things

There are days this man can drive me crazy, but then there are days he does something so small that makes me smile. Last night was one of those moments. He reminded me why I'm so thankful to have him in my life.

I had won a free $50 gift card and before choosing which one to get I asked him. Target, Walmart, Old Navy, or Kohls. I asked if I should be realistic or selfish. His answer... "selfish for once."

Just those 3 little words made me realize, even though he doesn't knowledge all that I do on a daily bais; he does still see it. It's nice at time's to be reminded how much you are appericated in a relationship. A price tag doesn't show love, but the little things do. I am sure lucky to have been blessed with such a wonderful husband!

Oh... I choose Kohl's. I'm in much need of some summer clothes. :)

Guess Who's Back??

Guess who's back, back again? Bre's back, tell a friend! Yep, that's right blog world and wonderful followers. The time has come for me to start writing again. I can't believe one of my 2011 goals was to blog more and then I don't write anything for over a month. Yeah, that's really not going to help me cross a goal off my list at the end of year. You can't accomplish something unless you work at!

So here I am; working on it, at work, without my Windows Live Writer, because my computer was updated and going nuts because I really want it back. Is it wrong for me to purchase a laptop just so I can bring it to work to blog? I wonder if there is a way to write it off at the end of the year for tax purposes. Then it would be totally justifiable. Right?

Guess who's back, back again? :)
