Mixer Monday: Mojito Madness

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Home Sweet Home, Mixer Monday, Relationships, Travel, Weekly Wonders, Yours Truly on 09/07/2015 at 09:00

Minty!

To ring in recent birthdays, I was all about ordering up mojitos!

La Canela Pasión

Passionfruit Mojito topped with Cocktail Fruit from La Canela Peruvian Restaurant

  1. First, to celebrate my Tita Fe‘s birthday, I had this Passionfruit Mojito at the Peruvian restaurant ~ thanks to my cousin & her hubby!
  2. Then I enjoyed a refreshing Frozen Blueberry Mojito at my own Bday Brunch from Miguel’s Mex Tex Café (Mex intentionally before Tex)!
  3. Most recently, I toasted to my cousin’s birthday with this Twisted Madre Mango Margarita ~ another special from Miguel’s Agave Bar!

Foodie Friday: Berry Good YOLO

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Foodie Friday, Health, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Technology, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 06/19/2015 at 02:00

As somebunny who loves sweets, I savor those concoctions that combine healthy goodness with YOLOs!

Berries + Cake = Score!

Bestie Evie seriously went all out during her birthday cake for our last day of R.E.

Yummy Cake by Evie

Evie’s Raspberry (Non-Rum) Cake: Evie took a twist on her Rum Cake recipe for our last day of R.E. ~ for the sake of our kiddos, she omitted the rum, & for the sake of 1, she made it gluten-FREE, & for the sake of flavor, she went happy on these raspberries! Both easy on the eyes & tasty on the lips (+ my share surely went to my hips #DISPObustAFlow)!

I took this to a smaller scale for my study snack on the day I ran my stats

Stats Slice

Blueberries are our friends … I’ve heard that slogan on a commercial back in the day, and it holds true to this day! Excellent for the memory ~ so wonderful timing on this stats day!

Of course, I also must add to the mix

Triple Play Parfait

#BatterUp for my #TriplePlay #parfait (from #BottomOfThe9th on up): #1stBase #GrahamCrackers #WhiteChocolateMousse + #2ndBase #AlmondJoy #almonds #coconut • #SaltedCaramel + #3rdBase #Oreos #raspberries #CandyCoatedPretzels #Espresso = #9innings for my #winnings #score #DISPObustAFlow #DISPOsAlwaysFly #FoodieFriday (actually had during Thursday #tStorm) #FroYo #YOLO #NikkisSwirlShoppe #SwirlShoppe #SpoonHappy #LayersOfFlavors ⚾️🍦🍧🍨🌰🍫🍪🍒🍓☕️👊🏽⚡️☔️💦🌈🌴 @swirlshoppe

Berries + Fro-Yo = Berry Good YOLO!
