Phew, its been quite a week! Between our site transition (thanks for making the move!) and accidentally showing up at a swanky all white party in bright purple (I know, why do these things happen to me!?!), I am so ready for the weekend. Unfortunately, instead of having somewhere fabulous to share with you, I have three contractors in my house patching up nail holes. Its been a year since we moved into the new abode and that means our one year check-up complete with all the fixes. The end result means I can finally start painting rooms again and doing fun projects around the house, the immediate however means a whole lotta banging and feeling trapped in the house on a Saturday. Le sigh. I think this calls for making a fun cocktail don’t you? When we were in Tanzania last month, Floyd and I were greeted at one hotel with a yummy frozen drink. After slurping it down, we officially agreed that from this point on, all house guests would be greeted accordingly. We tried to pinpoint what exactly it was, and when I asked the manager, was told it was a frozen vodka tonic. Genius! So last night I broke out the limes and got Champagne Saturday started a bit early…
All I did was throw some tonic water, vodka, ice and a squeeze of lime into a blender. The result was both tasty and pretty. I still think I’m missing a key ingredient from my African concoction, but it was pretty darn close. On a hot summer night, sipping on the ice chips is part of the fun regardless of the cocktail!
In trying to spare you my “around the house” shorts and tee, and without a fabulous outfit to play in this weekend, here is the little BCBG number from Nordstroms I picked out, as if I was going to a great rooftop party in the city. And while we’re dreaming, I also lost 10lbs so it looks really fabulous on me, ha!
How about you? Any fun Champagne Saturday posts to share? Just send us a link and we’ll put you up! Cheers!
