I had hubby make me this last weekend and it was so YUMMY. It is called a Pink Pigitini (how cute does that sound?). Here is the recipe I got it from:
We did substitute juice of a grapefruit with just 2 to 3 splashes of plain grapefruit juice. Hope y'all enjoy it as much as I did :)

My favorite VB patterns

I can't seem to make up my mind with which are my favorite patterns from Vera Bradly but so far these have been a front runner...well so Watercolor JUST came out but I really fell in love with it right away. I am someone who dresses in monotone colors so these little bags help make my outfit POP :)

I just love the light pastel colors from the Watercolor pattern.

Folloric has such fun bright colors.

Most of my new luggage is in Make Me Blush pattern. I love the shades of pink and green that they use.

Day 30: A photo you find beautiful.

I've decided to do days 27-30 in one day because my grandpa passed away yesterday evening. I'll be flying home tomorrow with my daughter to attend his funeral on Monday.

Day 29: A photo of your favorite person from history.

One of many favorites from history. I know it may seem like a cliché to choose her but I didn't choose her for her public persona as a "dumb blonde" or the whole Diamonds are a girls bestfriend saying. I've been a fan for many many years and its her sad personal life that I liked reading up on.

Day 28: A photo of something/somebody that made your day.

My little Mady. She can frustrate the heck out of me but only takes a second for me to forget all about it with her smiles. This picture is one of her "fake smiles". She fakes it when she doesn't want to take a picture. She was relaxing watching Dora when I kept trying to get her attention.

Day 27: A photo of something you are looking forward to.

I am looking forward to summer in TX! I can't wait to visit with all my family and friends :)

Day 24: A photo of what you want to be when you grow up.

I'd love to be a deaf interpreter. I took an ASL class a few years ago and loved it. It is something I definitely want to continue but don't know if I could do it full time. My fingers already freeze up on me and were doing it back then when I took the class. I'm pretty sure I have early stages of arthritis. I still want to take more classes.

Been happy lately and I don't know why

My new favorite show to watch late at night with my cat is Must Love Cats. Always puts me in a happy mood right before bed and the theme song is so catchy.

One of my favorite quotes.

Day 22: A photo that you associate a good memory with. Day 23: A photo of something you want to do someday.

Day 22~

When hubby and I were dating we'd every so often have "Mexican night". All it would be is us picking up some Mexican food and him making some margaritas and having fun at his house. I always had a great time just hanging out with him. So, tacos and margaritas reminds me of our "younger" years together. :)

Day 23~

I would one day hope I'd have the courage to karaoke. Not only do I have a horrible monotone singing voice but I fear standing in front of people (no matter the size of the group). So yea we shall see if I can do this one day.

Day 20: A photo of something you ate today. Day 21: A photo of somebody you find attractive.

Day 21~
Harold Ramis...both then and now :)
