Down for the Count & Happy Thanksgiving

Hey y'all! Man, whatever this season's flu bug/cold virus is, it's a doozy. I've been down for the count for the last week and a half and besides being sick, it's just SO ANNOYING. I hope you stay healthy, especially this week being the week of Thanksgiving. It crept up so quickly!

We travel out of town tomorrow to visit my husband's family for Christmas at his grandma's house. Sadly, my little hiatus will have to continue since his grandma doesn't have Internet. Four days without Internet will be interesting, for sure, especially since I know how much I rely on it!

I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving wherever you may be and however you are celebrating!

Summer in November

I, for one, am totally flabbergasted that it is already November! Seriously. WHERE. DID. THIS. YEAR. GO?

I started this blog back during the Royal Wedding, 6 months ago! I still feel like this baby blog is only a few weeks old. It's been a fun ride, I'm learning as I go, and I have nothing but respect for all you pro bloggers out there. The way you constantly churn out new, fresh content, serious props.

And since I'm remain in disbelief that it is, in fact, November, here's a fresh drink I saw on Pinterest. It would be perfect for a Signature Drink for a summer wedding. Refreshing. My husband LOVES watermelon and I think he could get on board with this one.

Watermelon & Tequila Mojito Recipe from Girl Cooks World

* 10 mint leaves
* 1/2 of a lime, cut into three wedges
* 2- 3 teaspoons sugar, depending on how sweet you like your drink
* 3 Tablespoons white or silver tequila 
* ice cubes
* about 1/2 cup seedless watermelon, blended until liquidized and smooth 
* splash of lemon-lime soda or sparkling water
* mint sprig and a slice of lime for garnish (optional) 

Happy Wednesday!
