some things...

posted on: Friday, April 8, 2011

i'm tired of being cold.
maybe this makes me whiny.
but it's still true.

my glorious tan that i worked to hard to develop in Florida is fading away.
my poor feet haven't felt fresh air in 2 weeks.
the sky is constantly grey.

so to battle it all,
i'm dreaming of warmer things.

this little Limoncello Champagne Cocktail has got my name allll over it.
yours is on it too.
here's how:
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup limoncello
  • 2 tablespoons sugar plus additional for dipping Champagne flutes
  • Lemon peel strips from 1 lemon
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice plus 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 cup (about) chilled Champagne or sparkling wine
Place mint, limoncello, 2 tablespoons sugar, and lemon strips in blender; blend until mint is finely chopped (lemon peel will be coarsely chopped), 10 seconds. Strain into small cup; discard solids. Run lemon wedge around rim of 2 Champagne flutes. Dip rims into sugar. Divide limoncello mixture and lemon juice between flutes. Top with Champagne.

the happiest shirt
yes please. to all of it.
let's just pretend that's me.
all above images via my pinterest.
p.s. i'm mildly addicted to pinterest.
are you privy?

if not, let me know.
there might be an invitation situation that you need to be able to get on board
but i'm happy to oblige
so that you, too, can spend countless hours dreaming and pinning your life away
(medicine, what?)

in other news, it is supposed to be 67 degrees tomorrow. 
fingers crossed!
