Fab Margarita Friday!

Just because I’ve been making some big changes in my life, and really trying to focus on my overall health and fitness, doesn’t mean I can’t have a little fun, right? After all, it’s all about balance, and how to balance everything you want in your lifestyle. IF you ever want to know anything about it, it’s that I’m all about experiencing life to the fullest, and having a lot of fun while doing so. I enjoy being healthy, and working on my fitness (thank you Fergi for that) but I also enjoy kicking back with family and friends, and having a drink or 2.

So a nice friend of mine told me about this awesome, ALL NATURAL margarita, I knew I had to try it for myself. So I did what any normal American person would do and I took to the inter webs to try to find the best, easiest recipe I could find. That’s when I came across this awesome lady – Averie Cooks and made this SUPER EASY margarita recipe. See below :

You guys! This was seriously the easiest and best homemade margarita’s that I’ve ever had! you can go to her website, and check it out (Link to website above) but seriously it’s so easy. Even my husband approved, and he approves of pretty much no website recipe.

Here are the instructions for you to check out:

All you need is limes, agave nectar, tequila, ice and water. You Juice the limes – I used about 5 to make 2 drinks (roughly), then you add 1 to 2 shots of agave nectar, 2-4 shots of tequila (depending on how strong you want them, and for how many people you are making), 1-2 shots of water, and ice. Mix that all together with the lime juice, and serve! THAT’S IT!

There are several other recipes that she has on her site that look really fun to try. I know I’ll be going back for more shortly, but seriously you guys, you need to try this. It’s easy, natural, refreshing for summer, and fun to make!

Give it a try, tell me how you like it!

What are your favorite drinks to make for summer?

Any other all natural recipes you care to share so I can try?

HAVE A FAB FRIDAY, EVERYONE!!

Thirsty Thursday – Lee Harvey Edition

HAPPY THURSDAY, EVERYONE! I’m so ready for this upcoming weekend, I can’t even stand myself. It’s been a week for the books, that’s for sure. I can’t complain though, it’s been a busy, tiring, fun-filled week. This weekend is also Easter, and I’m happy to be celebrating another first holiday with my little family. Those are the best things to look forward to. Oh, the joys of being an adult, and a parent!

So, here I am, sipping on my wine, ready for next week already, and thinking about some of the best places to tell you all about. This one comes because I can’t wait to go back! We have a friend coming into town next week, and when he asked us to take him to Lee Harvey’s, I couldn’t even begin to tell you how happy I was about this! So, without further ado, here is this weeks “Thirsty Thursday” – Lee Harvey Edition!

A small little bar in South Dallas that was made from a house, this place doesn’t even boast small. Honestly, when you walk in the doors it feels like home, maybe a little home from the 80s, but it still feels like home. Drink specials every night from 3-7, and seriously, who doesn’t like a place that makes their own pickles?!

They have bands that play on the weekends, they have this super kick ass outdoor area that you can bring your dogs too if you want. Picnic benches, and even fire pits surround the outside. Makes you never want to leave. Their motto, which I personally LOVE is “a little friendly dive bar that welcomes everyone.” I can’t say enough good things about this place, but I’ll let you check out their webpage for yourself  Here

I’ve even added some pictures of this joint, just so you can get a feel of what I’m talking about.

Do these pictures not make you want to hang out there, like ALL THE TIME?! If you don’t believe me, you should try it for yourself. Also, if you want to join their mailing list, so you can see when the next event or concert is, just go Here .

So that’s all I have for now, friends!

Have a wonderful night, and BOTTOMS UP!

Cheers!

Thirsty Thursday!

If you can’t tell by my posts, I like to relax with a cocktail or 2 occasionally, (ok- I really like wine…like REALLY like wine!) So I decided to start a new segment with this blog featuring some local restaurants, wineries, breweries, or bars with some of my favorite foods, drinks, etc!

I started last week, but, well, life happened and I didn’t get to post anything about the location that I was featuring. So this week we will have a 2 part segment- consider yourselves lucky!

The first place that I want to tell you all about is a brewery that’s close to our house, and oh so tasty! They are fairly new. My husband and I went to their grand opening a couple years ago, and we have been hooked since! Woodcreek Brewing Company is one of the coolest, most relaxed places to visit if you are in Rockwall, Texas. They have a fun atmosphere, this life sized Jenga game, and all of the staff is VERY friendly. You can tour the site, and learn how they make some of their beers. And while you’re there, you might as well taste them! No matter what you have in mind, they have something to cater to anyone’s pallet. Go check them out!

The next place that I want to talk about is Revolver Brewing This place has one of my MOST FAVORITE beers in the planet. I mean, seriously ya’ll- this beer is amazing. Blood and Honey! It’s like a blue moon, but stronger, and even tastier! If you are in Grandbury, Texas you need to go by this place. But if you are local, you can find their beers in almost any grocery store now, too! That makes this mommy VERY HAPPY! I’m telling you- this beer is SOO good, I even got some of my family members on it, and they live in South Carolina! Guess they just have to come visit us more often! 🙂10509646_10101994837596430_3494585407891749935_n

Well, that’s all I have for now. Stay tuned for more places around here, because believe me, I have more to come!

Thanks, and bottoms up!!
