GIRLS NIGHT WITH SAUZA SPARKLING MARGARITAS

 

Remember last week when I posted about my exciting trip to New York? Well, I am excited to share a fun project I worked on with some blogging friends Hallie, Devon, Natalie, and Mel for Sauza Sparkling Margaritas and GLAM.  The five of us girls headed to Atlantic Beach for a fun girls weekend. The house we stayed in was absolutely amazing (seriously my dream kitchen, well and everything else), but the friends I made were even better. All of us girls had an absolute blast, especially ending the night with a big splash by Hallie

The weekend started after we got all dolled up, of course everyone had the cutest outfits. It was too funny that we all ended up color coordinating (I swear this was completely random). I wore a pair of Joie lace shorts, a Madewell silk tank, this Anthropolgie necklace, and my favorite Zara heels; which ended up being the perfect outfit for an outdoor dinner and drinks.

After getting ready, we headed down to the kitchen for a few Sauza Sparkling Margaritas and some simple apps.  Devon and I made some delicious guacamole (my favorite recipe is below) and couldn’t resist having a few bites before everything was finished. We made a simple, fresh mexican fiesta and of course had plenty of Sauza Sparkling Margaritas.  My favorite flavor is the Original Lime.  The margaritas all have the perfect amount of bubbles and are ready- to- serve which makes the prep as easy as ever! 

My ideal Girls Night involves making everything simple so I can actually enjoy the night rather than stressing in the kitchen. We all chipped in and helped with the prep which ended up being my favorite part of the day. Of course, we always had a glass of Sauza Sparkling Margaritas by our sides. 

Our dinner so delicious and the stories that were told made my face hurt for days from all of the laughing! We made fish tacos, fresh grilled corn, an arugula salad, and the most amazing dessert (I will spare you the details, but let me just tell you it was so delicious)- especially with the Wild Berry flavor margarita.

After dinner, we decided to take the party poolside and continue the night with some more drinks!  The weather was absolutely beautiful and the perfect night to dance and splash around by the pool.  One of the girls made some delicious fruit popsicles that were the perfect side kick to my Original Lime Sauza Sparkling Margarita.  

It was seriously an incredible weekend, and one I will never forget.  I hope you enjoy the video! For a little inside on how to plan a Girls Night, check this out! 

Here is the recipe for my favorite guacamole:  

2 whole avocados 

1 ripe tomato (or a package of grape tomatoes )

1 white onion 

1 clove of garlic 

a handful of cilantro 

1/4 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice and a sprinkle of salt 

All you do is smash the avocados, mix in the chopped tomatoes, onion and garlic, sprinkle the cilantro and pour on the fresh lime juice and salt and serve! I like to dip either warm tortilla chips or fresh carrots, and you are all set!

Lock It Up

“I’m terribly sorry, but there is no “u” in my pint.”

How funny is this? I had to share this new, cute gift from Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream.  Patrick sent this to me yesterday and I got a kick out of it.  Maybe because I have an addiction to ice cream (even though I am not supposed to eat it).  You can buy it here – it would be a cute gift for a boyfriend, hubby or even a Father’s Day gift.

The Carry-All

Everytime I go to the grocery store and fill my cart, I get to the checkout line and then remember that I forgot my reusable bags in the car.  Maybe because they aren’t very cute and subconciously I am forgetting them on purpose (sorry earth!) Well these carry-all’s from StudioPatro are just what I need.  They are so cute and made out of 100% linen which makes them super light and durable.  I think I need CARRY and GATHER for my weekly grocery store runs.

Baking With Love

 

If you read my post yesterday you would have seen that I was baking cookies all afternoon and watching my Jayhawks beat Oklahoma State! I found this great recipie for sugar cookies on Sweet Sugar Belle blog where there is no refrigeration necessary.  It took me half the time that it normally takes and I think they taste even better than Martha’s famous sugar cookies (Sorry Martha).  * A tip for the icing- use gel food coloring. You achieve better colors for the royal icing.  

Here is the reciepe via Sweet Sugar Belle 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup- 2 sticks of real unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp almond flavoring 
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt

    Good Morning

    This morning we woke up and made a big breakfast to get ready to tackle my reorganization project I have in store for today.  My goal is to clean out my closet of everything I haven’t worn in over 1 year, color coordinate, and deep clean my our whole place.  Are you crossing off anything on your resolution list today?

    Freshen Up

    I have been wanting to start a juice cleanse for a while now but I don’t think I can just drink liquids for five days straight.  My sweet roomie got me this juicer attachment to go on my KitchenAid for Christmas, so i decided to start making fresh juice every morning to start the day off right. My grandma always told the saying “Fruit till Noon.” She says that it helps with digestion, healthy eating habits, and gives your body more energy throughout the day.  So I finally decided to take her advice this year and hopefully I see some positive effects.  

    Here is a great article about the positive effects of juicing from Raw Living Foods

    Ten Reasons to Juice

    1. Cleansing and Alkalizing

    2. Enzymes

    3. Nutrients, vitamins, and minerals

    4. Easier to digest and absorb

    6. True hydration
