Weekend Update

Why is it that weekends go so much faster than the rest of the week? It seems that is even more true in the summer. Oh well! We made sure to soak up all the sun this weekend . On Friday we met up with friends and family to see Dave Matthews, and it was great as always. Music is so much more fun to listen to at an outdoor venue!


Yay DMB!
P.S. If you like in Ohio and have never been to blossom for a concert. what are you waiting for??

On Saturday I had to work in the morning, and then we did some shopping for a bathroom remodel and grilled outside at home in the evening.
Sunday was spent doing yardwork and then playing beach volleyball. We almost got rained out, but luckily got in all our games. We went 1-2 which is pretty amazing for our team :)

Speaking of outdoors, I've got a recipe for a refreshing summer drink for you to try! 

Cucumber Margaritas
serves 1
3 baby cucumbers, peeled
Fresh lime juice from 1 lime, to taste
1.5 oz blanco tequila
1. 5 oz triple sec or cointreau
agave or simple syrup to sweeten if needed

first, peel and blend cucumbers with a small amount of water. You will get a gorgeous green colored puree that smells amazing.
add all ingredients to a shaker with ice.
shake it!
serve over ice

enjoy responsibly :)


How amazing is that color? All from fresh ingredients with no added preservatives or scary ingredients from a mix. It was so refreshing! I hope you will try it, let me know what you think! I am already dreaming up different purees to make next.
