Memorial Day is a holiday to reflect upon what sacrifices people have made in order for us to live in this wonderful place called America. It’s also a great time to reconnect with friends and family.
Over the weekend I’ve been able to spend time with some of my oldest and dearest friends that I don’t get to see very often. I’ve also spent time with some of my close friends cooking out, sitting by the pool and just spending time catching up.
Today I went over to my friend Maggie’s house to sit by the pool. Her dog, Jack Woods, is sort of a doggie celebrity. He’s very rare and has a bloodline that traces to a Westminster Dog Show winner. Jack loves the pool, especially floating. Check out these super cute floats that I found at Walmart.com. Remember the other day when we discussed TopCashBack.com? Well guess what? I used the site and got 10% cash back for these super cute floats. I just ordered them thru the TopCashBack.com site and then picked them up. No shipping costs and they were ready to be picked up within an hour! Look how cute they are! Who doesn’t love a lollipops and cupcakes?!
When we got ready to use them it was pretty much a comedy show blowing them up. I thought I might pass out before they were ready to use. After the adventure of blowing up the floats, it was time for a cocktail. I found a great combination that I think you will like. It’s a Strawberry, Thyme and Prosecco cocktail. Here’s the ingredients:
2 cups strawberries (chopped)
1 cup liqueur (limoncello)
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
750 milliliters white wine (sparkling)
Mix this up and you have a perfect outdoor party! I hope your weekend was as nice as mine. xoxoxo
