An update would be an understatement

Hey guys sorry I have MIA-- most of my free time has been spent sunning it up outside and taking in all this great weather! 

I hope y'all had a great St. Patty's day and are enjoying your first day of spring!

I don't want to bore you by recapping the past couple weeks as nothing too crazy has been going on! I did make it home this past weekend, which was awesome! There's just a sweet something about waking up at the beach with my family and puppies around!!!  This week will be another busy one but I will try my darnest to get back on the blogging wagon!

Hope y'all have a GREAT first day of SPRING!

HUMPday and catch-up!

Hey y'all sorry for the lack of posting lately.  Im not 100% sure what has kept me detained but feel like I have been pretty busy around these parts! I figured I would update y'all in one LONG WINDED post :), I would suggest taking a deep ole breath before diving in to this one, it's mostly rambling ha! If you don't make it to the bottom let's just say I don't blame you :)

This past weekend Bib and I traveled down to Richmond for the night to meet up with some of my favorite ladies! As I mentioned Friday, we had lots to catch-up on and celebrations to be had! We met up at this cute little restaurant in Carytown!! We may or may not have over stayed our welcome but hey we were having a great ole time! It was so fun!

The rest of the weekend consisted of lots of visiting, brunch with my dc loves at my new favorite spot, Market Tavern!, watching the boys ball it up on the courts, Chinese take-out yummm, BOARD GAMES (that's right FINALLY!) and The Oscars! Sheww that was a lot ha! Here are some of my fav gowns:

Just a GREAT little weekend if I must say so myself! Nothing like an update on a Wednesday!

The week has been go go go as well! I mean a Monday wouldn't be complete without The Bachelor! Have y'all been watching!?  Who is your fav?! Who do you think will win! I have really big bets on Lindsey!

Yesterday, Ry and I ROCKED THE RED! We went to the Caps v. Islanders game!! It was soooo fun!!! We were down pretty much ALL of the game, BUT... within the last 30 seconds tied for OT! CRAZYYYY! And.. WE WON!!! Such a great game!!!

Sheww now you can breathe! I'm done atleast for now :) haha! What have y'all been up to? 

Hope y'all are having a great week!

Happy Margarita Day!

So the story has it, The Margarita was created in October 1941, at Hussong's Cantina in Ensenada, Mexico by Mister Don Carlos Orozco. Margarita Henkel, daughter to a German ambassador, was the first of many to taste the new cocktail on a sunny afternoon. In honor of Margarita being the first to try his concoction, he named the cocktail after her.

For the original cocktail one should use:
1 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz triple sec
2 oz tequila
Kosher salt

Tip one up in celebration :)
