Strawberry Lime Margarita


I have slept in every day this week for no other reason except I felt like it.

On Wednesday I had the smallest bit of guilt, but I quickly dismissed it and sent it on its way. I went on with my day sipping coffee, making waffles for lunch, juicing strawberries for this margarita all while barefoot, in my hubby’s shorts and no makeup. Man, life has been good this week. Maybe I can convince myself to take next week off too. I doubt it, but it was amazing.

Invest in yourself, really you’re worth it! Take an hour, a day or even a weekend and make it your own. It can bring such clarity to your life, refresh your senses and make your realize it’s the little things that count. Like these little berries that escaped my girls snappy hands. How sweet that these little red buttons can bring me such joy. Enjoy.

  13. Excellent advice. I feel like I’ve been running on empty for awhile and a week of lazing around might be what I need….but only if I can take one of these drinks with me. How cute is that garnish!?!

  14. First, how adorable are your strawberry hearts?! Love!

    Second, I love that you sent guilt on its way and enjoyed your day. I took a nap a mere 2 hours after waking up yesterday and I don’t feel guilty one bit. We deserve it! We work hard! :)

  15. Quite possibly my most favorite of frosty alcoholic beverages.
