On Monday I filled 185 plastic easter eggs with goodies.
On Tuesday I taped, glued and glittered eggs, bunnies and baskets with my girls.
On Wednesday I ran to the store to pick up the perfect shade of purple my daughter just had to have for her Easter basket.
On Thursday I moved the enormous Easter pinata located in my living room for the fifth time so I could clean.
On Friday as I grated carrots for cupcakes. I had planned to send with hubby for his co workers. I became a little frustrated.
I was a little Eastered out. I was over planning, over preparing and over stressing for a holiday that was a week away.
Honestly who would care if the eggs weren’t perfect, if the decorations were slightly runny from excess glue or if I even sent cupcakes?
I needed to relax. So I chucked all the carrots into my juicer and concoted this groovy Easter Margarita. Before the glass touched my lips I hesitated. It is kinda different, but I like different. Enjoy!
If you enjoy fresh carrot juice this is the drink for you. The fresh juice adds a refreshing backdrop to the lime juice.
