Cherry Beer Margaritas can fix anything

We have an “open house” policy at the beach. After my friends Tiernan and Rich left, my sister-in-law Trish popped in.

It was great to have her and her two boys (who weren’t scared of the slightly inebriated and very loud adults) playing Left, Right, Center.

The next day, Bridget and her friend Ally arrived. Bridgey and I haven’t seen each other in a year, but we still showed up with the same clothes. (We heart H&M)

image

Then our long-time beach buddies Moose & Marcy (who said they couldn’t make it) surprised us on the beach!

image

The following day my sister, Kelly Belly, showed up (desperate for some sun) and we only had clouds.

image

We quickly fixed the no-sun problem with this delicious new drink called Cherry Beer Margaritas.

All is right with the world. RECIPE HERE!

Beach Bound!!

Mama B and I road trippin’ to the Jersey Shore!

We’ve been going to Stone Harbor since I was two years old. Things are a bit different now…for instance, good ol’ Fred’s Tavern is now our first stop. 🙂

When you vacation with your parents as an adult, this is what your refrigerator looks like…Activia & Corona, the perfect combination.

My best friend from college and her super fun husband always join us and the three of us basically talked nonstop for 7 hours.

image

It’s great to have my college friends, our family friends and my folks all together at the beach.

We ended the day at Stone Harbor pizza and then it’s summertime nights on the deck.

A ski getaway with friends

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Dontcha just love Fridays??? I always get a boost knowing I have a fun, relaxing weekend right within reach. I’ve been trying to bounce back from a cold/flu that’s taking forever to shake off. Super jazzed to get some extra rest this weekend and hopefully at least one good workout.

I spent the last weekend skiing with friends at Holiday Valley in New York. Note the pic of me with my best blondes. 🙂

And one with the hubby.

Unfortunately, one of my friends had to jet out early because she got a call that her grandma was in the hospital and they were going to have to say their final goodbyes. It got me thinking that those of us who still have our grandparents are the LUCKIEST sons-of-a-guns in the world…my own Nunny, who is sassy and fantastic, is one of the greatest women I have ever known.

And so, a big hug to my friend who did lose her grandma, and a big virtual hug to all of you who don’t have yours anymore. May we always remember how BLESSED we are to have Gram & Gramps in our lives (even if it was for a short time.)
