Weekend Quick Trip

My evening should have consisted of sleep. Instead it consisted of a Bachelorette watching party. A very quickly organized, come on over but no dinner is served type of party. I also don't keep many items in the house that are adult beverage related, but I did have one specialty up my sleeve...
I purchased this strawberry margarita wine stuff on my wine tour last month. I don't like tequila so I thought this would be a better alternative. It is different flavored margarita mixes but made with wine, not tequila! Anyway, I stumbled across my creation when I was making a smoothie and I ran out of any juices I had. This was all I had, so I said why not! So all I did was mix the frozen fruit with the margarita mix in my magic bullet and it was AMAZING. I had enough left to make some for my friends that came over. Everyone seemed to like it just as much as I did!

[Top Pics for Emily]...for now ;)

Now on to my weekend re-cap....
My friend Chendra is getting married in October and her couples shower was on Saturday. Most of her family is from a small town called Weimer so we headed about 5 hours south for a good ol' country time!
 I finally got to meet baby Gemma. She was so precious. I wish I could have held her more, but Daddy wouldn't let her go!
We went for just the night and woke up the next morning to take an impromptu trip to Lake Somerville. My parents had been watching my pup, Tucker, for a couple weeks because of my traveling so we had to pick him up and figured why not swap at the lake! My childhood summers were spent on Lake Somerville and I haven't been in a couple years so it was so nice to get a few hours on the jet skis and soak up some sun. We couldn't stay too long because we had to head back to the Big D :(
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I know I did, now, tonight, we sleep!
