This weekend was a fun one, even though Andy was out of town (It was lonely without him!) I managed to stay busy and spent some time with some of my best girlfriends at a wedding shower and had a nice Sunday lunch with Andy’s mom and his sister-in-law, Lindsay.
My friend Sam (who was my sorority sister and roommate in college) is getting married in San Diego, CA in August. She and her fiance live there and go to Law School (smarty pants!) She is from the Cleveland area so she had her wedding shower back home so that her friends and family in the area could attend.
Andy and I are going to the wedding in August, which I can not wait for! I have never been to San Diego and I’m looking forward to a little vacation.
The wedding shower was a lot of fun and it was great to get together with my girlfriends. The theme was “Cupid and Cupcakes”, which was so cute!
I had one cupcake, which was peanut butter. It was phenomenal!
I also had a small plate of other goodies which included: mac n’ cheese, deviled eggs (loved these!) mini quiche, fresh fruit, and hummus with pita bread.
My friend Megan (who is one hot mama by the way!) brought her baby girl, Lena. I’m not just saying this because she is my friend, but Lena is one of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen! She is so precious.
Sam got plenty of great gifts and is set in the kitchen! She got tons of wine glasses, mixing bowls, pots and pans, and more. Gotta love when you reach 20 something and getting household items is actually exciting! 😉
Skinny Girl Margarita Review
The rest of my Saturday was spent relaxing at home and catching up on trashy TV shows such as the Bad Girl’s Club. This show is so disturbing and trashy, yet I can’t stop watching! Although I wouldn’t last two minutes in the Bad Girl’s house without curling up in the fetal position and crying in a corner for my mom. Yeah, Bad Girl I am NOT!
While watching my filth, I sipped on a Skinny Girl Margarita. I saw a bottle in the liquor store when Andy and I went and decided to buy a couple. I’m definitely a fan of Bethenny Frankel, who is behind the Skinny Girl brand.
As for the margarita in a bottle…I really like it! It simply tastes like tequila and lime juice, but I don’t like really sweet drinks. This drink concoction works for me!
If you like simple drinks, such as vodka with water and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, you’ll like this. If you like traditional margaritas that are sweet, you probably won’t. However, you could add a splash of juice or add your own sweetener to it.
I heard Bethenny Frankel say on a talk show that she is coming out with more drinks to add to her line, so I’ll be sure to test em’ out when they hit the market.
The good thing about her line is that you could order these types of drinks out at a bar as they have simple ingredients. Gotta love that!
I met up with Andy’s mom and his sister-in-law Lindsay for some lunch on Sunday. We decided to meet at Ruby Tuesdays. I had not been there in a long time so I was excited to go.
We split some spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer, which was really good. I got a grilled shrimp salad for my entree and was not impressed. The shrimp were the size of small marbles and the lettuce looked old.
I ate most of it and it because I was hungry, but I would not order that again. I should have went with the salad bar so I could put together my own creation. On the positive side, the salad did come with a cheddar biscuit, which was tasty!
I don’t know about you, but I find that a lot of chain restaurants have very average (and a lot of times less than average) food. I don’t have the best luck when I go to places like Applebees or Fridays. The food just seems like it’s been sitting out all day.
Back to the GRIND
After a nice weekend it’s back to the grind today! I actually had a lot of energy for a Monday and enjoyed a nice workout on my elliptical this morning and a walk with the dogs (also taught a couple of classes at work). How is your week shaping up?
What is your favorite chain restaurant?
Have you tried Skinny Girl Margaritas? What do you think of them?
