Ladies and gentlemen, summer has arrived! Well, unofficially. The pool is open, the weather is warm, the kids are home and ready for adventures. I'm one happy mama! We've had a low-key Memorial Day weekend. While the part of me that loves entertaining was kind of sad that we just hung out around the house this weekend, we really needed a break. It's been a month full of company and traveling for birthdays, Mother's Day, and a host of other events. We have company coming again this weekend. We definitely needed some down time!
So, while most of America soaked up the sun and grilled out we watched movies, played board games, ate breakfast for dinner, and just generally enjoyed being a family. No complaints here.
While our weekend may have been plenty relaxed and homebodyish we decided that it was still deserving of a fun summer signature libation. :-)
I mentioned that I've been a little blender-friendly lately now that I finally have a blender that's capable of turning ice into beautifully creamy concoctions. I have been having soooo much fun making everything from smoothies for my daughter to grown up drinks and I honestly can't say enough good things about my Ninja! Why did I suffer through life with a sub-par blender for all of those years??
