2 Point Watermelon Margaritas

2 point Watermelon Margaritas 002

This has been the perfect birthday weekend! It kicked off Friday night at a friend's house watching the movie Frozen. I finally got to see what all the hooplah was about, and  I liked that movie a lot. On Saturday, I got together with a bunch of friends and family and played Bingo at Lucky 13's. We didn't win anything, but quite a few of us were close. I'm surprised I was able to still play Bingo, considering the fact, that I had a huge punch bowl. I ended up getting some awesome presents too. ...

Summer Rhubarb Lemonade

It's that time of year again.  I have so much Rhubarb in my garden that I don't know what to do with it all. When life gives you rhubarb you make lemonade. Speaking of gardens, this year I'm going to give watermelon a try. Last year, my garden had a pretty good turn out rate for pumpkins. I'm also planting 2 tomatoes, basil, parsley, rosemary and 2 pumpkin plants. The weather has been a bit rainy this Summer and it's been hard to plant anything yet. Take any lemonade recipe. ANY.  You w ...

The Moscow Mule

It's Friday and do you know what Fridays are for? Drinking! Memorial Day weekend is finally here and tomorrow I am going to the lake cabin after my Mom gets off work. Hopefully it doesn't rain. Tonight, I'm going to make a Red, White, and Blue Cake to bring there and I hope everyone has a fun weekend. I blame my brother for getting me addicted to this drink. The last 3 times I've been over to his place, he's always asked me if I wanted a drink and he will give me a Moscow Mule.  After trying ...

Cake Batter Mudslides

  My team is in the NHL playoffs and they aren't doing so great. :( If they don't win tonight they're done. In case you're wondering who my favorite hockey team it's the Minnesota Wild.  I've been a hockey fan ever since I was little. My brother would play and they would drag me to all of his hockey games.  In college, I was all about my UND team and would follow the players very closely. Now those players have all moved on and are pro. On Friday night we were watching the Wild pl ...

Strawberry Margaritas and a new Lens!

strawberry margaritas 035

Hola people! In honor of getting my new 40 mm macro lens, I thought I'd give it a test drive with some fresh strawberry margaritas.  So far I'm loving this new lens. It came with a bunch of cleaning utensils for your camera lens like a cloth and a pen.  Getting new toys for your camera is so much fun. This is my 7th camera lens now and I think I'm done buying them for awhile. I always say that, but ended up finding new ones. I really wanted a 55 MM camera lens that had a macro function on there t ...

Fruity Exploding Sangria

Sangria and Soup 006

Let me first tell you a funny story when I was making this Sangria. I poured all the wine into the pitcher and then the fruit that I had juiced. After pouring the club soda into the juiced fruit and wine, the drink exploded. Literally exploded. It started foaming up and I had to quickly take the pitcher of Sangria to my sink to wait for all the fizziness to stop. Ben was laughing pretty hard, not at me, but at the Sangria. I had to quickly clean up the sangria mess on the floor, before we had ...
