Happy Friday + a cocktail

PRICKLY PEAR MARGARITA

Last week Alex went off on a business trip to St. Augustine leaving me with all three kiddos.  Normally, I wouldn’t blink at the thought of some past-bedtime alone time, but on this particular night all three of my babies decided to rebel against their scheduled bedtime and wake up in the middle of the night. They all ended up in my bed and I ended up with the biggest headache known to man!

So, when Alex walked through the door all bright eyed and bushy tailed, he knew the only way to make it pass the foyer was with a peace offering.  This time around he brought back the tastiest prickly pear margarita mix and we celebrated his homecoming with margaritas!

Prickly pear margaritas:

1 oz tequila of your choice

30z margarita mix

Shake it all in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and enjoy! Super easy and so tasty!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend… if you haven’t heard yet, I’ll turn 30 on Sunday and will probably start celebrating tonight with these Margaritas.

And to all of you mamas who are holding down the fort solo, cheers to you!

JORD watches + a GIVEAWAY

JORD watches

My dad is a watch aficionado.  I have the fondest memories of him completing his ensembles with a perfectly fitted wrist watch.  He passed on his appreciation for watches the day he wrapped my first 1990 casio watch around my wrist. Since then, I’ve had an appreciation for all things watches and I’ve started a collection my father would be proud of.  Teresa has always known that about me, and over the years she has been an intrical player in the expansion of my collection.  When Jord wood watches reached out to her about collaborating, she did not hesitate to think of me and picked this incredible Dover series Koa & Black wrist watch to add to my repertoire.

I really love this wrist watch. First off, this Dover series men’s Jord watch is made of Koa wood giving it a medium gold to reddish brown tone that compliments almost everything I wear.  It also has a bold black face that pops when the light hits it and because woodwork is so unique, this watch is one of a kind.
I wore the watch to work for a couple of weeks and received so many compliments on how unique, interesting and intricate the wood work is. Overall I am very happy with the choice Teresa made and with this watch!
Here’s the cool part.
We’re partnering with Jord wood watches to giveaway a $75 e-voucher to one lucky winner!

Lately

I have taken up running again and although I’m only sticking to 20 minute running sessions, it feels so good to get back out there. I do have to admit that although running has been awesome, it keeps me sweating all day long… which means my metabolism is working but my goodness… sweat fest!
